Our condo is located in Kingswood Village in Kings Beach, California and is less than 1 mile to Lake Tahoe and a 24 hour Safeway and just five miles southeast of Northstar Ski Resort. The location is centrally located to twelve ski resorts in the Tahoe area. Kingswood Village offers a large pool with children’s wading area (open Memorial Day through Labor Day) as well as three tennis courts that also include a basketball hoop (open Memorial Day through the first snow), a bocci ball court (open year round), and a small exercise room that includes a treadmill, an elliptical trainer, and a supine bicycle (open year round from 6:30am – 9pm). Kingswood Village is one of the best-kept complexes in the Tahoe area and has numerous tall pines and cedar trees that remind you that you are in alpine country. Additionally, we are located on the lower edge of the complex adjacent to a cul-de-sac that has a trail head leading to an extensive trail system popular with hikers and mountain bikers. You can be on the trail in less than 2 minutes from our front door.

Effective January 12, 2021 Placer County is allowing short term rentals (vacation rentals) to re-open. The County has provided a set of guidelines for proper cleaning and general property management of short term rentals. Our vacation rental is in compliance with these guidelines. We have a single housekeeping service that fully understands the requirements and will be providing an increased level of cleaning while also making sure that their personnel are safe and protected. As just one example, all high touch surfaces (hand rails, door knobs, counters, bath and kitchen surfaces, etc) will be wiped down with disinfectant after each guest stay. And of course, all sheets and towels will be thoroughly laundered. We are pleased to be re-opening and want your stay to be as worry-free as possible.

Effective October 14, 2020 Kingswood Village is a no smoking complex. While we have maintained a no smoking unit from the beginning, the new rules for the complex explicitly prohibit smoking on the unit decks, entry area, or any common space including the parking lots. Violations will result in fines and those fines will be passed along to guests.


The first level includes a large master bedroom with a king size bed, cable TV/DVD, and a private deck. There’s also a second bedroom on this level with queen bed and cable TV/DVD. This level also provides a full bath as well as a full size washer and dryer.
The second level includes an open kitchen with seating for three at the counter as well as a dining area with a table that comfortably seats six. The kitchen includes a ceramic cook top and oven, a microwave, and dishwasher. Small appliances include a coffee maker, a Keurig, toaster, blender, griddle, wok, fondue pot and mixer. The kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans, utensils, and dishes and just about everything you might need for dining and entertaining during your stay.
Also on this level, the family room includes a wood burning fireplace with a gas starter and vaulted ceiling with a ceiling fan. The entertainment center in the family room includes cable TV/DVD/CD/VHS. The deck on this level provides an electric barbecue (electric due to a compliance requirement in the complex) and an outdoor dining table for four. This floor also features a second full bath as well as a small gaming area that hosts a TV with Nintendo, Sega, Xbox, and Xbox 360 gaming systems and games. We also provide Wi-Fi and a Mac laptop loaded with iTunes as well as plenty of board games and a large library of movies on DVD and VHS.
The third level is a loft that overlooks the family room and includes two twin beds as well as two portable futon mattresses. We request that you bring sleeping bags or sheets if you plan to use the futons. If you use our extra twin sheets there may be an additional fee due to the extra cleaning/laundry effort required by housekeeping. We do offer blankets and pillows for your use should you need them. Also in the loft, you will find a tote of large Legos for little ones as well as another tote of standard Legos for older children.
