About the property

2 Bedroom + Bonus Room & 2 Full Baths. Sleeps 6.

My location is the best, you're only 4 miles from the Casinos and the Lake Tahoe beaches, but a world away from the congestion and the viewless lots of flat South Lake Tahoe. The Tahoe Rim Trail runs right past the front door. This is on top of the Mountain at the Stagecoach Ski Lift overlooking it all. The Lake Vista Condo has free access to the privately managed pool and hot tub which is professionally cleaned by our Homeowner's Association. A super place to relax on top of the Mountain.

(The location dot simply shows the South Lake Tahoe casinos. Keep in mind that my homes are 4 miles up the road in the much more scenic mountain top area by two of Heavenly's ski lifts.....we don't show the address and pinpoint location for your security). Reach out to us directly as we can make you the best deal and tell you all the details about these three terrific homes. Larry and Jen

About Larry and Jen

I'm an active duty Air Force pilot flying the C-5 Galaxy and I have always loved Tahoe and considered it my true home. Unfortunately over the past 12 years I spend about every other week flying an mission to Afghanistan and back and that's when my better half Jennifer takes over and manages the day to day demands of our rentals. I know you'll have a great time up here and we want to share all of the adventures we have discovered in Tahoe.

Larry and Jen purchased this condo in 2005

Why Larry and Jen chose Bijou 1

South Lake Tahoe has a ton of cabins and most of them are in the flat parts with no views....that's why I bought my homes in the most scenic parts on the state border as this is the place that reminds me of the alpine Swiss country I grew up in. Stateline is also almost exclusively upscale vacation rentals so you won't find any run down homes in our neighborhood.

What makes this condo unique

Close proximity to everything....the ski lifts are literally a hundred yards away. The casinos and the lake are less than 4 miles away. And the Tahoe Rim Trail are literally outside your front door. There is no need to drive anyplace if you want to hike this world class trail.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Larry and Jen for our third stay with you. You continue to amaze us how you've redone this ski condo with modern bathrooms and new floors. Looks terrific and no one beats your prices.

Just arrived up here and had to share what a terrific view this condo has. Incredible mountain and lake vistas. Never seen anything like it. Clean and modern inside. Owner texts you within minutes if you have a question.

Awesome second visit for two couples !

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Jen, thanks for having us up again to your condo. We had stayed with you in December and never got around to letting you know that we had a great ski vacation. There was so much snow that we skied right down to the Boulder lift from the condo. Took the shuttle back. Thank you for your card after our stay. We just had 2 nights this time from June 27-29th and Summer is just as much fun in Tahoe. We hit the trail right out front as you suggested. Amazing sights. Will send you some photos of us at the top of Spooner Summit. Will reach out to you again this Fall. Thanks for the discount. Jesse and Kate

Too far from everything

  • 3 of 5

The property was nice, for our girls trip, we didn't need much space and didn't plan on spending too much time here. Very clean, had a wash and dryer, tvs, 2 nice bathrooms and 3 beds. Perfect for a younger crowd or one family. We were very disappointed in the location. It said in the description that it was 5 minutes away from the lake and close to the casinos. That wasn't true it was about 15-20 minutes away.(the pin point on vrbo isn't the location of the condo) It was also located in Nevada so it was hard and very inconvenient trying to get an uber. There weren't any stores near by that was also inconvenient. If I would have known the location from the get go we would have just paid a little more to stay somewhere closer to downtown (we ended up haven't to pay that much for uber and taxis anyways) overall the place was nice had enough space for us girls but the location of the condo ruined what we had planned. I wouldn't stay here again just because of the location. Next time I know to ask for the address before booking a place to stay. If you don't plan on being close to the casinos or lake this place would be perfect for you.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry to hear that. Dozens of guests before you loved the location because it is quiet and in a neighborhood with ski condos and vacation homes overlooking Lake Tahoe and the Heavenly ski lifts. We're 4 miles from the casinos and all the South Lake Tahoe tourist sites. Any homes within walking distance to that area are surrounded by motels and parking lots. It's just not very pleasant and I make that clear in my property description. If you want a quiet spot with amazing views above the flat parts of South Lake Tahoe then come stay at our modern and remodeled ski condo right on the world famous Tahoe Rim Trail. Yours, Larry

Awesome ski vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jennifer, my parents and my husband wanted to say thanks for making our week in Tahoe terrific. It was so nice to stay in a home that was tastefully furnished and the three new mattresses were much appreciated. You made us such a good deal, we will come again in the Spring. Susie and Henry
