The space
Situated three-hundred steps (1.5 blocks) from the beach, you can't beat this location for North Shore fun. The Kings Beach Cottage feels like a sanctuary located in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Kings Beach. No worries about parking and traffic with two parking spots on site. It takes 5 minutes to walk to Kings Beach State Park and 3 minutes to the best burrito north of the border at La Mexicana (restaurant and grocery).

The space sleeps two adults or a family of four comfortably, as long as you are able to share the only two beds (no floor or sofa sleeping). We only feel comfortable renting to guests that know how to clean up after themselves and tread lightly on the space. If you are someone who takes really good care of the spaces you rent, we'd love to have you. If being very clean and extremely carful with the spaces you rent will make your trip less enjoyable, this place is not a good fit. Please share your thoughts on being a clean and treading lightly at booking. All guests who can treat the space with extra care, leaving it in as good of condition as they found it, are welcome.

The space is simple and clean with a sanctuary like feel. A deck on the street side of the house (except during winter) includes a table, chairs an umbrella and are also two Adirondack chairs, lovely for eating meals, people watching or just relaxing after a day at the beach. The kitchen offers a large island counter for seating and a simple array of pots, pans, baking dishes and dining-ware. There is a queen-size, memory-foam bed in bedroom #1 and a full-size American Leather Comfort Sleeper sofa in bedroom #2. This sleeper sofa is the most amazingly comfortable sofa-bed you will ever experience. There is a Roku TV. It is connected to wifi, but to watch anything other than the free stuff you will have to login. There are bath towels and soap for your use, in a beautifully tiled bathroom with a heated floor.

Guest access
The home has two bedrooms. You will have access to the house as shown in the pictures - (deck, kitchen, living room, bathroom, bedrooms, laundry, driveway, front yard and backyard). The side yard and backyard are a works-in-progress, with dry natural grasses and some wild flowers.

Other things to note
BE BEAR AWARE! There are bears in Kings Beach. We have spotted these visitors on our three outdoor motion-sensor cameras - located in/on the side yard, the front deck and the backyard. We mostly see evidence of their activity at night. Any garbage you bring outside must be placed in the BEAR BOX. Also, just like at local campgrounds, it would be advisable to bring your cooler inside.

There can be weather in the Tahoe area that changes your trip significantly. California wildfires in the late summer can bring smoke to the area. Blizzards can happen in the winter that make it difficult or impossible to get here with out 4-wheel drive. During snow storms, Donner Pass on I-80 and Brockway Summit on Highway 267 require chains (non-ladder cable) if your car does not have four-wheel drive with snow tires on all four wheels.

You can check for up-to-date conditions on the cdot website - just put in the highway number. I also use the National Weather Service website to check the forecast at the top of Donner Summit - which a town called Soda Springs is pretty close to.

We do have three outdoor motion-sensor cameras outside - located in/on the side yard, the front deck and the back yard.

Location

Kings Beach, California, United States

If you're looking for a community filled with expensive vacation homes, Kings Beach is not a good fit. If you like being part of diverse communities, you may really appreciate Kings Beach. Kings Beach is a mix of small cottages, large homes, trailer communities and much more. It is diverse, based both on socioeconomics and ethnicity.

Everything is a walk or bike ride away from the Kings Beach Cottage - bars, restaurants, fun little shops, and the beach. For food shopping, Safeway is 0.70 miles away and La Mexicana in 1 block away. Northstar is a 15-minute drive away, and Squaw Valley 30-minutes.

More recently, I've fixed up a home in Kings Beach on the North Shore of Lake Tahoe. I look forward to hosting wonderful AirBnB guests there.
