Description

The space

Beautiful new North Tahoe house in the prestigious Kingswood Village (Tahoe Vista/Kings Beach). This house is your perfect escape from the busy everyday life in the city. It's bright, spacious, well equipped and very quiet.

It was built in 2001 and only been rented over the last 4 years. It offers the vaulted ceilings, hot tub on the secluded back deck (extra $85 charge), stand-alone Finish sauna just off the guest bedrooms downstairs, 2 indoor jacuzzi's in the bathrooms and 2 fireplaces (living room and master bedroom). The house is conveniently located 4 miles to the Northstar Ski Resort and 3 miles to the lake shores/beaches and a Safeway at the Kings Beach. It was built to order with state-of-the-art hydraulic heating system and all modern materials and appliances. The house has three levels: a main floor has the master bedroom (Cal king bed), huge living/dining room and modern gourmet kitchen. Two guest bedrooms are downstairs (king bed in one and queen and bank bed in the other). The third level is a spacious loft that can accommodate up to 4 guests (trundle day bed with the second twin bed that can be pulled out plus another full bed).

Outdoor hot tub on the private back porch (lock code will be provided after additional $ 85 service fee agreed upon and paid)
2 indoors jacuzzis in bathrooms
Stand-alone finish sauna (lock code needed to access, free access for guests paying hot tub fee).
2 car heated garage plus 2 more cars can fit on the driveway
Washer and dryer
Wireless internet

Whether you love skiing or hiking, swimming or fishing, there is fun for everyone !!!

The house is located in the great, quiet and very safe neighborhood on the middle of the forest and away from the freeways and busy roads.

Guest access

Very easy key-less entry to the house, which will be emailed or texted to guests a day prior to their arrivals.

If you chose to use hot tub and sauna, a separate lock code will be provided upon receipt of the additional $ 85 service fee.

Interaction with guests

My guests can reach me by phone or email at any time in case there are any questions or issues at the house.

The neighborhood

My house is situated in the midst of the forest, the streets are very quiet and perfect for a short or long walk. Also the back entrance to Tahoe North National park is only a mile away and it offers numerous hiking trails. Tahoe shore is 3 miles away as well as Northstar ski resort located off I-267 just 4 miles away.

Getting around

The shuttle to the lake/beach and Norhstar ski resort is available along I-267 during summer and winter seasons but unfortunately it's not available DIRECTLY from the house so you better rely on having your own car.

Other things to note

Very easy key-less entry to the house, which will be emailed or texted to guests a day prior to their arrivals.

If you chose to use hot tub and sauna, a separate lock code will be provided upon receipt of the additional $ 85 service fee.


House Rules
Check-in is after 3PM

PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH OR PLAY WITH THE FREEZER ALARM BOX LOCATED IN THE KITCHEN TO THE RIGHT OF THE STOVE. IT MUST BE LEFT ON “ON" SETTING ALL THE TIME, IF IT'S ON “STANDBY" THE HOUSE WILL NOT BE HEATED.

IF YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE EXESSIVELY DIRTY AND THE CLEANING CREW WILL NEED EXTRA TIME TO CLEAN IT UP, YOU MAY LOOSE A PORTION OF YOUR SECURITY DEPOSIT.

HEATER (winter time only): The house is equipped with new hydraulic heating system that uses pipes filled with hot water running under the floors. The system has remote “on" and “off" capabilities and being controlled over the phone. It takes full 24 hours to heat up the house. Please be sure you let me know exact hour of your arrival and remind me to turn the heat up 24 hrs before your arrival time. Once you are in the house, you can use up and down arrows on the thermostats to adjust the temperature setting to your comfort. Upon your departure there is no need to change the heater settings at all, just make sure you bring it back to initial 65 degree. You simply need to notify me about your departure hour so I can make another phone call and turn the heat off. PLEASE DO NOT PLAY WITH THE SETTINGS AND DO NOT CHANGE ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE TEMPERATURE ITSELF.

LINENS: Linens and towels are provided, but please make sure you strip your beds and leave all used linens and towels on the floor so the cleaning crew knows what was used and what need to be washed after you.

GARBAGE Instructions: Garbage pickup is once a week only, on Fridays around 10 am. We have two 32 gallons garbage bins outside on a driveway in a green bear-proof box. It opens with the key attached. That box must be LOCKED at all times. Before you depart, please place all the garbage in these bins. Please make an attempt to compress/fold all your garbage so it can fit in those 2 bins. IF YOU ACCUMULATE MORE GARBAGE THAN CAN FIT INTO PROVIDED 2 BINS, YOU MUST TAKE IT WITH YOU UPON YOUR DEPARTURE. THE LOCAL GARBAGE COMPANY APPLIES EXTRA CHARGES FOR THE OVERFLOW AND FOR THE LOOSE GARBAGE THROWN IN THE BOX (NOT PLACED IN THE BINS). PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE GARBAGE IN THE GARAGE AND DO NOT LEAVE GARBAGE OUTSIDE NEXT TO THE BEAR BOX. If we get fined, the amount of the fine will be deducted from your SECURITY deposit.

HOT TUB Instructions: ANY PERSON ENTERING A HOT TUB MUST TAKE A SHOWER!!! You need to start warming hot tub 3-4 hours prior your intended use. Raise the temperature up to 100F but keep the lid closed until you are ready to use it. Please note, the lid is very heavy and it takes at least 2 people to move it. The hot tub must be locked with the cable and digital lock provided AT ALL TIMES it's not in use and ESPECIALLY UPON YOUR DEPARTURE.
Always make sure to check the MODE setting and set it to STANDARD, otherwise the temperature will not raise to desired 100-104 degrees no matter how long you wait. Please make sure you cover the hot tub snugly after your use and lower the temperature to 80 degrees. PLEASE DO NOT PLAY WITH THE CONTROL PANEL AND DO NOT SWITCH THE SETTINGS AND DO NOT LET YOUR KIDS TO PLAY WITH THAT TOO. ONCE IT'S MESSED UP, IT'S VERY HARD TO BRING IT BACK TO NORMAL WORKING MODE AND IT TAKES A SPECIALIST TO DO SO. YOU MAY LOOSE A PORTION OR YOUR ENTIRE DEPOSIT IF SPECIAL SERVICE WILL BE REQUIRED AFTER YOUR STAY.

SAUNA instructions: THE WALK WAY TO THE SAUNA MIGHT BE VERY ICY DURING WINTER TIMES. USE IT AT YOUR OWN RISK. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY INJURIES THAT MAY OCCUR TO YOU WHILE YOU ARE IN OUR HOUSE. You may want to use one of the rugs to “pave" your way to the sauna to avoid any accidents or falls on the ice. Approximately 2 hours prior to your intended use, enter the sauna, find two tumblers down below next to the door, switch the left one to MAX and place the right timer on number 1. You might need to move it past 1 clockwise first, and then return it back to 1 counter clockwise and hear a click. It will not be hot enough in an hour, the sauna apparently is not designed by “Russian" traditions, and so in 40-50 mins before the timer will go off, you need to come back and place it on 1 again and wait another hour or so. Please switch the left tumbler to MIN when you done, that will turn the sauna off. Call us if you have troubles with sauna, we will try to walk you thru the process over the phone. THE SAUNA MUST BE LOCKED USING PROVIDED DIGITAL LOCK AT ALL TIMES NOT IN USE AND ESPECIALLY UPON YOUR DEPARTURE.

MASTER BEDROOM'S BLINDS: are controlled by the remote control; sometimes it takes more than one attempt to get them moving up and down so please be patient. There is a manual way to work with those blinds by pressing a small round spot on the right top corner. But it can only be done to the lower blinds by the door and the window facing the back deck. Blinds as well as their remote controls are battery operated; we are trying to replace those batteries regularly.

GAS BBQ on the back deck: The easiest way to start a gas grill is by using electrical igniter (look for it in the kitchen drawer by the stove top). Please be advised that a metal lid gets too hot while touching the house wall and may cause the fire eventually if not watched carefully. Do not leave the hot lid open for a long time to prevent possible fires. DO NOT LEAVE ANY MEAT OR FOOD OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE OR ON THE GRILL AS IT MAY INVITE WILDLIFE SUCH AS BEARS, COYOTES AND RACOONS.

CEILING FANS: on the loft are controlled by the toggle switch located on the loft by the desk and/or by another switch located on the wall next to the thermostat near the bathroom in kitchen (under the red metal stairs).

FIREPLACES: Please be careful with the fireplace doors, sometimes it's tricky to find how they open, look for instructions and do NOT force the doors to be opened.

PLEASE BE SURE TO KEEP ALL WINDOWS OR DOORS CLOSED/LOCKED WHEN YOU LEAVE THE HOUSE DURING THE DAY OR AT NIGHT TO AVOID ANY UNWANTED AND HUNGRY 4-LEGGED VISITORS.
