About Nolan J. Arieta

Good morning and I look forward to accommodating you for your upcoming South Lake Tahoe vacation!

Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Nolan J. Arieta and I am a full-time Doctor of Physical Therapy here in the San Francisco Bay Area, (specifically in Pleasant Hill, California). I also own and manage this vacation rental property where I work hard to offer the best Tahoe experience for the price, because I do not have time to argue pricing. I keep my rates affordable all year long, (3 bedroom house w/ Hot Tub for only $99 per weeknight, non-holiday).

Nolan J. Arieta purchased this house in 2004

Why Nolan J. Arieta chose Rancho Bijou

South Lake Tahoe is the most beautiful destination within a day's drive from the Bay Area, L.A., and only a hop, skip, and a jump from Sacramento. There is just something alluring about this beautiful Lake and definitely my favorite place on Earth. I welcome you to share the beauty of this wonderful place at my vacation home in South Lake Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

My aim is to give people more for less: I don't know of any 3 bedroom houses in the Tahoe Basin featuring a private hot tub, that allows pets for no extra charge that offers off-season $99 weeknight prices.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed at this nice house over the weekend with my boyfriend. It was a nice cabin feeling especially to end the winter season up in Tahoe and the hot tub is only minutes away from the California base lodge at Heavenly. Can't beat the price for a nice tahoe cabin and a great sized backyard for the dogs.

Really nice and clean

  • 5 of 5

The hot tub was awesome along with the fenced in yard the dogs and grass. The beds were very comfortable with the pillow tops just like home. Was nice after being out all day and could come back to the house to relax. Look forward to renting again in the winter. Would have been nice to have a tv in the main room. Was also nice the covered front porch too sit in the morning with coffee.

So much potential, but...

  • 2 of 5

First of all, I rarely give poor reviews. I don't mind older properties and eclectic furnishings. Nolan was quite responsive with questions and graciously let us check in a few hours early. However, the property was very dirty. The walls, baseboards, corners, ledges need attention badly as they are grimy with dirt, smudges and splash marks. The insides of cabinets and drawers were filthy. I questioned if I had to wash everything prior to use. Fridge, stove, bathroom fixtures were ok. Sheets mismatched, towels were similar to garage rags. There was a large load of laundry in the dryer that I folded and found some nicer towels. The house instructions and emergency exit are thumbtacked to the wall on furled notebook paper, tacky. The price was good and the property was dog friendly. I would suggest that the owner take a discriminating walkthrough of his property.

Owner's Response: First of all, I don’t think I’ve ever received a 2 star review, and I think it’s not appropriate for how nice my staff and I have kept this house. I find it interesting that the tenant never contacted me during her 5 day trip..and I took her advice and visited my vacation home only to find a couple of scratches on the dining room table and a couple of scuffs on the baseboard. This is a vacation rental and I do keep a clean house but this isn’t a 5 star luxury resort however it is a very nice mountain home. I take the cleanliness and the presentation very seriously; this is why we have maintained a 4.4 out of 5 star review over the past 14 years. My staff and I want to make your vacation a great one: I have a full time gardner, handyman, cleaning services, and maintanence scheduler. If you have read this response and are ready for a great Tahoe vacation, simply email me and mention “response to review” in your subject title and I’ll take 10% off of your stay. We look forward to accommodating you. Kind regards, Nolan J. Arieta

Very clean with comfortable beds and a great backyard!

  • 4 of 5

The house was easy and convenient to access with the lockbox key storage. The house was very clean and the furniture was very comfortable. Great for families. I would definitely consider staying again. 4 stars only because the driveway needs to be redone and makes it difficult to fit 2 cars and the back door has a big drop to the landing with a loose threshold that we all kept tripping over. But overall we had a great experience!
