About the Property

4 Bedrooms + 3.5 Baths - (Sleeps 12)

Brand new vacation home. Luxury features throughout the home. Blocks Walk out your door to hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails in acres of National Forest.

Everything in this custom house is premium and over sized. Every room is over-sized, with extra tall walls and vaulted ceilings. Two large decks for al fresco dining and a giant hot tub.

Three large private master suites — all three have their own bathrooms, two have their own spa tubs. Plus a bonus room with two sets of bunk beds (so four twin beds) - perfect for sleepovers.

Luxury finishes ensure a great stay: hardwood floors, rock fireplace, custom alder wood doors & trim throughout the house. No expenses were spared!

Top of the line GE Profile stainless steel cook top, double oven/microwave and ultra quiet dishwasher are included in the custom Coventry maple cabinets with custom granite counter tops in the kitchen as well as throughout the house.

HIKING: There is a terrific loop trail that starts from the house for a good evening walk. Walk out the front door and go up April Drive to the top of the loop. Go left and through the gate. Make a right and follow the trail through the woods. Cross the stream and continue on. When you get to the major intersection where the signs are make a left back towards the house. Follow this trail until reaches Heavenly. There is a great lookout here of the lake and sunset from the top of the rocks. You can then head left back to the house where you started.

* Note: This home is not rented on craigslist. Please do not get scammed by people on craigslist trying to rent you vacation homes!

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • House and Hot tub Cleaning Fee $225
  • Tax Rate 10%

Notes:

Rates are subject to change at any time as holidays are different each year. While we try to keep rates up to date for the next 6 months, rates further away then that are often wrong as Holiday dates change every year and Homeaway/VRBO doesn't have the ability to edit say XMAS rates for all future years. So instant book rates are subject to change after you book.

Car: Necessary

The house is 3471 April Drive (not 3491 - I can't fix it on the map and Homeaway says they can't either!) The house is 1-2 miles from EVERYTHING (but everything is in different directions)

• Casinos: 2 miles

• Beach/Awesome Sledding Hill: 2 miles

• Grocery Store: 2 miles

• Heavenly Ski Resort: 1 mile

• Ski Run Blvd Restaurants: 1 mile

• Hiking & Biking Trails: Out Front Door

All beaches are public. Pope & Reagan beach are the best day beaches with BBQs and whatnot. Also Camp Richardson / The Beacon has a great hang out restaurant on the beach usually with Live music + the old Pope estate to check out. This is on the way to Emerald Bay (a great day trip) - stop at the ice cream shop on the corner - it's cheap! The end of Ski Run Blvd there is a long pier and a nice restaurant called the Riva Grill. The Red Hut has great breakfasts (two locations one on the 50, the other on Kingsbury Grade). Rude Brothers Coffee (on the 50 near Al Tahoe) has great coffee and treats. Cork and More has great picnic supplies and wine selection (Al Tahoe near 50).

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: My family has had a vacation home in South Lake Tahoe since I was 10 years old. 20 years ago, my father moved there permanently. For the past 10 years, my father and I have been building homes in Tahoe and selling them. But this one I built for myself and my family (that's my wife and new daughter in the photo). I work in Advertising in San Francisco and manage other family vacation homes for many years.

Why the Owner Chose Rancho Bijou (South Lake Tahoe, CA, USA):
Location, location, location! We decided two years ago to build a house for ourselves. After months of searching we found the perfect lot. It's near Heavenly Ski Resort (where I've had season passes for many years and from where I can ski from the mountain to the house) and off Pioneer Trail (providing quick and direct access to the Bay Area, the mountains, the lake and the Casinos while avoiding Hwy 50). It also has miles and miles of hiking and biking trails right from the front door. Which was very important to our family. After all, what's a vacation home if it's in the city?
