We are going into our 4th year of self management and like it that way. It allows us to have more control over things like being as green as possible, we believe in doing our part to help keep the environment in balance. We are doing small things like using biodegradable cleaning products and using refillable dispensers throughout the place. We love using the awesome products by EO and we hope to make a small contribution to mother earth and inspire others to do the same. By managing our own place, we also enjoy personal connection with our renters and pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want you to feel like you've arrived home when you get to our place!
We purchased our place in 2010, and did a mini-makeover to bring in the colors and accents that reflect the beauty & peace of the mountains. Because it's an older building, it is truly solid and when the kids are in the back bedroom laughing and playing, you can enjoy the peace and quiet in the kitchen or dining room.
Our downstairs condo has a full kitchen - everything you need to make a delicious meal or perfect cup of joe. The openness of the kitchen, living room and dining room appeals to sense of community and family/friends hanging out and enjoying one another.
The master bedroom has an additional t.v. (the living room has a 40'HD) and the master bath has a 60’s retro-tiled shower. The hall bath has a bathtub.
We have a small library of books for leisure reading and games for kids - big and small. All the bedding & linens are included. The lake is just a 10-minute walk from our front door and City Bus/Shuttle service is right down the street. You may walk to several different restaurants - including the best bakery in town - The Suger Pine Bakery. There is plenty of parking out front.

About the owner: We love the mountains. It has long been a dream of my husband's to have a place in the mountains - and a few years ago, he managed to talk me into learning how to ski. Once I found myself in and on the mountain in a whole new way, his dream became mine and we decided to find a place that we could go to as a family and a place to share with our friends. In our excitement of having this new place we’ve infused it with our appreciation of the surroundings of the astoundingly beautiful Sierra’s and now, we are throwing out a net, in hopes of finding like-minded folks that want what we want: A sweet mountain refuge. We hope you will relax, rejuvenate and be inspired when you stay at our place.
Why the Owner Chose Bijou 1: Our place, 'Bavarian Village,' really does feel like a little village. Built in the 60's, the design of the complex alternates the exteriors structure so they are not identical creating a bit of character, setting it apart from so many cookie cutter condo complexes.
We enjoy the town of South Lake and find the people are incredibly nice and lacking the city hussle-bussle that we are accustomed to. We like it's laid back vibe and the kindness of the locals. The South Lake area has something for everybody whether you are looking for outdoor adventure, seasonal festivals, concerts, or gaming. It is close to the picturesque Emerald Bay and at least a dozen other lakes for hiking. And for winter sports, it is within 35 minutes of three ski areas and the Heavenly gondola comes right into town.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Our downstairs unit is convenient to get in and out of. We like that we can keep an eye on our kids and our older guests don't have to hike up any stairs. It is quiet and spacious with an open floor plan so you can be in the kitchen, dining room, or the living room and not miss out on the action. Just as easily, those looking for some space can retire to one of the bedrooms in the back of the unit and get some quiet.
