Bijou 1 house description
Custom designed and decorated ECO friendly premium South Lake Tahoe accommodation. Renters deserve luxury too!
Are you tired of dumpy rental accommodations ? We designed and decorated rentals that are green, classy, and sophisticated because that is the type of rental we seek when we travel.
HEAVENLY STAY is a gorgeous lodge with two cabins: a very cool, hip, THREE bedroom, two bath side called RAINFOREST (third bedroom is a double bunkbed bedroom and RAINFOREST CAN be rented as a TWO BEDROOM for an average $265/nt; It can also be rented as a LUXURY one bedroom( $195) or THREE bedroom for $285/nt. Rates are relative to number of occupants. Sleeps 2-6 well behaved persons of any age.
The other cabin is an ultra swanky mid century decorated ONE bedroom, one bath side that we call BLUELEAF. It is over 600 sq ft ! Sleeps 2-4.
RAINFOREST has a romantic master bedroom with a 5 STAR King bed with designer beddings , organic sheets and soft sconce lighting. State of the art video and BOSE music systems, fireplace circular down filled couch with westerly views thru the pines; and a custom 'RAINFOREST shower' which you will just have to experience to believe. For the second bedrooom you can access an alder wrapped queen bedroom that looks out into the grove of neighborhood pines; or if you have kids: you can choose a sophisticated double bunk bed with premium full size mattresses for your second bedroom.
The house technology is state of the art: stream movies all day long; a BOSE sound system to give life to your playlist; blue ray DVD player; WIFI; Super fast internet connectivity. Toasty warm, scenic , luxurious and best of all we are 'GREEN' !
The 'BLUELEAF' side (VRBO 335926) is a VERY LARGE natural pine one bedroom, one bath with a separate natural pine large sunken living room with large scenic windows to enjoy the tall pines surrounding the cabin, and the redwood deck and patio outside your bedroom slider. Enjoy the wood burning fireplace, the giant LED LCD with internet connectivity, a BOSE sound system handmade artisan kitchen tiles, induction cooktop; blue refrigerator; modern convection oven; natural log cabinets crafted here in SLT by a local artist.
We bought this one story Gamble House in the summer of 2010: our purpose with this, and other business ventures, is to make hospitality 'SUSTAINABLE': this has two meanings for us.
First we thoughtfully planned, and reconstructed a house with sustainable materials; and planet friendly energy systems: allergen free filtration, below floor generated heating, lighting that is both ECO friendly and local artisan crafted, etc. The beautiful, natural cork flooring runs throughout the main vitality centers of the house; Mohawk SMART STRAND carpeting, an organic natural fiber carpet, was selected for the bedrooms, so you can happily, and healthfully, skip around in your bare feet. Recycled glass products, and wood products have been used throughout the home......very artistically. You might never know.....
As important in our thoughtfulness, was YOU, the vacation renter. You deserve a cool, swanky, modern, earth friendly, HEALTHY rental accommodation for your hard earned dollars (or euros......or pounds.....or yen.....or yuan.....ok stop now little brain........)
We want you to be thrilled and overjoyed with your accommodation: and WE WANT YOU BACK ! To create sustainable hospitality, we need to blow you away, stay after stay. That is OUR mission too. You see, hospitality must also be sustainable: at the highest level possible. It is just fair and right.
During your vacation at HEAVENLY STAY, you will you find little surprises that tell you WE REALLY DO CARE that YOU have a GREAT time ! The little surprises are everywhere.....Stay with us once, and let us treat you with the respect and hospitality you deserve. ......we know you will understand why we hand picked the name 'Heavenly Tahoe Stay' for our beloved lodge.......

Hi Sande - we checked out this morning around 9 and had an amazing time. We were already talking about when we could make it up next on the drive home. Thanks again for the amazing place and we look forward to staying again soon (and you were right about the shower, it left Cheryl speechless when she walked in).

PeacefulGuest comment entered by owner
Dear Sande Thank you very much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home. The dogs especially loved romping around the golf course-it was glorious. We enjoyed every moment of our stay. Your home is comfortable, peaceful, and every design detail is thoughtfully considered. The sauna-like bathroom in the master bedroom was a special treat. We look forward to coming back.

"Live Aloha"Guest comment entered by owner
Hi Sande- I just wanted to say thanks again for letting us use your cabin, we had a GREAT time. My cousins from Hawaii LOVED Tahoe and loved the cabin as well. They probably think all cabins look like that, but "not so" I tell them. Sande saves us from the bear, apple and pine tree wall paper borders. haha. We can't wait to make it an annual trip!

Tahoe is cold! But it's warm inside!
Thank you for having Apricot and me at Rainforest and for making all those arrangements last minute. The place is very comfortable but it is very cold in Tahoe. Apricot had fun in the snow for the first time. Thanks again. The kitchen countertop ...it is beautiful.

PerfectGuest comment entered by owner
We did have a great time. The house was perfect for the 4 of us (plus the pups) and the master was big enough for both of their kennels. The pups definitely enjoyed their stay, the yard was perfect!

Wife's BD getaway
We stayed on the Blueleaf side of the house, one of the better houses we have rented in Lake Tahoe. The king sized bed was comfortable and the shower was nice. Good location, near Stateline. Property was secure and very private. Bonus was the big screen tv, Bose music system and of course our dog was welcome. Only suggestion we can make, (possibly a housekeeping issue) Toilet paper and a few extra towels would be nice. We definitely will return, but this time rent the entire property to share with our family!

Your house is beautiful! Thanks for the very nice welcome and advice. We were 17 miles away and the road was closed for 2 hours. We enjoyed the warm cabin and treats. Thank you so much. Thank you Sande, we appreciate your kindness…Thank you for everything

RAINFOREST SHOWER comment
Dear Sande, We had a really nice time in tahoe (a perfect hike at Fallen Leaf Lake) and were so comfortable at your rental. That shower is a work of art! Thank you for opening up the extra room for us~ that was very generous of you.

Why the Owner Chose Bijou 1:
I absolutely love Lake Tahoe.........ever since reading 'Roughing It' by Mark Twain. There is no where on Earth like this...............Mother Earth clearly is a long time resident here on the south shore.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
My pup loves the yard: because it is private, and hidden, and enclosed: we can romp about til we both drop. Then walk down the block to the Golf Course with it's awesome views of Heavenly. I especially love the SUNSETS thru the western facing living room and dining room windows. I love the Rainforest shower.......OMG I love Bay Area chocolates and treats.......I leave them for you in the most unusual places: come, have a look around......
