This newly renovated cottage is located one block from the lake in Kings Beach. The home feels like a four star hotel with fun amenities such as a firepit, bocce ball court and outdoor dining area.

The Space

Karen is a former HGTV designer. Mikel was her television producer. They wanted a place in Tahoe that reflected the fun of SF and LA so they bought a piece of sh** cinder block bunker and completely rehabbed it.

The fenced-in yard has a wonderful firepit for year-round campfires outdoors, as well as an outdoor dining table, bocce ball court and BBQ. Inside, you have a Nest digital thermostat, a 47" HDTV in the living room with Apple TV and Roku to play music or watch your favorite streaming shows (FREE Netflix, Hulu and HBOgo) and a Nintendo Wii. There's also a 32" HDTV in the queen sized bedroom. (Only streaming TV, no local channels or cable). If you're still bored, plenty of parlor games await you and in the winter, we have four toboggans at your disposal. Down pillows, organic cotton bath towels, and a Thermostatic 8" rain hood in the shower were all chosen to recreate our favorite four star hotel experiences. The interior doors are salvage doors from SF Victorians, the coffee is Blue Bottle, the floors are black bamboo and the walls are brand new bead board.

Guest Access

Besides being a block from the actual lake and downtown Kings Beach, you are a short drive to Northstar, Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Mt. Rose and Diamond Peak ski resorts as well as the casinos in Crystal Bay and Incline Village.

Interaction with Guests

This is a true getaway. You will have a house manager and handyman nearby if you need anything, but otherwise, we want you to make yourselves at home.

The Neighborhood

Besides being a block from the actual lake and downtown Kings Beach, you are a short drive to Northstar, Squaw, Alpine Meadows, Mt. Rose and Diamond Peak ski resorts as well as the casinos in Crystal Bay and Incline Village.

Getting around

You are steps away from plenty of shops and restaurants. A 24 hour Safeway is a two minute drive.

Other Things to Note

Want to bring your pet? Sure! $25/night pet fee... which if you think about it is a bargain next to our human fee. We've also included the county's 10% hotel tax in the overall price.

There are beds for 4, maximum occupancy 6. We'll provide one Frontgate queen size air bed for additional guests. Because we know that happens.

  • Fantastic home, great location! Absolutely the best rental property in Kings Beach.

    July 2014
  • We had a wonderful time and Mikel was a wonderful host. We were all so happy with the house and will definitely be coming back in the future!

  • I cannot say enough amazing things about Mikel's cottage. It and he were perfect in every way. The cottage was one of the nicest places I have ever holiday'd in (and that's saying a lot!). His attention to detail in designing the cottage was perfect and his hosting skills even more so. We will be going back - cannot wait!!

  • This was a peaceful and comfortable place to stay. Everything you needed was there and a lot of extra thoughtful touches. Very comfy and cosy. Our kids and dog felt right at home and enjoyed the large yard too. Mikel was also very responsive and easy to communicate with.

  • The Hip Modern Cottage of Amazingness was beyond cool. My sister and I were sorry that we were not staying more than one night. The cottage is perfectly located off the main road ... easy to find and convenient to beach, supermarket, and local watering holes. Mike was extremely easy to communicate with. Thank you for making our 10 hours in North Lake Tahoe such a pleasant experience.

  • Pictures don't do Mikel's place justice. We couldn't get over how amazing the place was for about 10 minutes after we got there! Really clean and cosy, with everything you need and more. More than enough space for 4 adults. Mikel provides info and instructions for a really comfortable stay. Convenient location and just a great place to come back to after a long day. Best experience on airbnb thus far!

  • We had a great time at Mikel's cottage this past weekend. It's in a great location, close to the beach, golf course, restaurants, and grocery. The cottage itself is perfect for a weekend getaway and is fully equipped with some very nice touches. We especially loved the outdoor space. We took Mikel's advice on the restaurant recommendations that were included in the (hilarious) welcome packet and liked them all. We're excited to come back and spend another weekend sometime soon!

  • Mikel, your house is amazing, very clean, charming and secure. We wish we could stay longer. Hope to be back again next winter!

  • This cottage was AMAZING! Hands down the most stylish house in Tahoe. It was a spontaneous mid-week trip, just booked the morning of our arrival, communication with Mikel was swift and easy! Originally planned to stay just one night, but our family loved it so much we decided to play hooky an extra day and stayed 2! Too many wonderful things to list - house is easy to find, parking right in front, super fun decor, freezer stocked with ice cream, freshly roasted blue bottle coffee ready to be brewed, dog friendly, modern kitchen and a 24 hour Safeway just minutes away, fancy and powerful hot shower, cozy couch and beds, Apple TV, Netflix - we took advantage of all of it! It's also super close to our favorite, Northstar - can't wait to come back next winter (hoping there's more snow)! It's great to know that the cleaning lady is also available to dog-sit when you're out on the slopes. HOW AWESOME IS THAT?!? We will definitely be back soon - we would love to be able to enjoy the grill and firepit in the summertime. It is definitely the best place to get away.

  • This place is super adorbs!! Cozy with everything you need for an enjoyable stay in Tahoe. Very close to Safeway, Kings Beach, and a ~10-15 min drive to North Star.

    Fits 5-6 people comfortably.
    Big backyard with ample seating and lounging.

    Mikel is very responsive and super sweet.

    I will definitely come back :)

About
I am a reality television development producer who seeks out people, places and things that are broken, weird, ridiculous and fancy. The other owner of the house is Karen, a San Francisco designer who loves four star hotels, questioning authority and her son Jack. Oh, and she used to have a couple shows on HGTV. We both love to travel and don't believe nice has to be expensive.
