Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 12-14)

Looking for the perfect getaway? Look no further as this South Lake Tahoe home is only 1.6 miles from Heavenly Valley Ski Resort. Renovated in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2010, this 2700+ sq ft home is 5 bedrooms 3 full baths of contemporary modern living.

Welcoming our guests to our home for 2017 is a beautiful modern glass panel garage door with heated driveway to complement our 2016 electrical upgrade for our Tesla owners to charge at night in the comforts of the garage. Yes, we've heard the suggestions and we've added this feature to our home to encourage our reduction to the carbon footprint of the house. Situated for either side of the garage, bring your Model S or X to Tahoe and enjoy the electricity to get you back to your home by charging the night before. Don't fuss with the gas and charge at our home while you sleep comfortably in this luxury getaway. And always be able to park in winter as the driveway constantly melts snow to ease driving in and out of our home.

In addition to our electrical upgrade, we've also added full luxury to the upstairs bathroom turning the upstairs bathrooms into a miniature spa. All Travertine floors on either side of the bathroom are heated with that heated feature continuing into the master shower so your feet never feel cold again. You'll find yourself slipping away into relaxation as the 3 valve system can shower your every desire. Indulge yourself in head to toe water with the six body sprays, 12" rain head, and hand held wand. Yes, we spared no expense to give you a shower that rivals a private spa. Luxury does not stop with the master shower as this non-traditional Jack and Jill bathroom gives the other side additional luxury with a Jacuzzi tub/shower combination with two body sprays and a rain head as well. And if that was not enough, you can find the intelligent toilet in the middle with heated seats, night light, automatic flushing technology, as well as both bidet, spray and drying functions to keep your backside fresh and clean.

Also, be sure to take advantage of our downstairs renovated bathrooms allowing luxury during the winter and relaxation throughout the year. With the addition of radiant floor heating in the bathrooms, glass enclosed showers or tubs, these designer bathrooms will melt those pains away from your activities with body sprays, rain showers, or hand held wands to reach those hard to hit areas of your body. The cool Travertine floors make these small spa retreats available to you after a long day of skiing or a hot summer day. If those muscles are tired, relax in the downstairs Jacuzzi tub with recirculating heat feature if the outdoor Jacuzzi tub is full.

This home can easily accommodate 2 families and has an open floor plan to dine in or entertain. If dining Al Fresco is your pleasure, added in 2014 are outdoor gazebos with seating for 12 with complete outdoor stereo system and available for use is a propane gas grill for those grilling needs all year round. You may dine during the day or enjoy the Sierra air at night with multi colored LED lighting options for each gazebo and complete protection from any elements outside. Complete your outdoor/dining experience with music outside with our integrated Sonos Hi-Fi stereo system. If you'd rather dine in, our stainless steel range and fully stocked kitchen will allow you to prepare a feast for your guests and family.

For 2015 we added extensive lighting around the property so that you may enjoy your own personal backyard while dining or relaxing at home. Enjoy nature with a personal 10,000 sq ft backyard with plenty of snow to build your own snowman and family in the winter or hear the soothing sounds of a babbling brook into a pond in the summer. If joining us in the summer, you will have your own personal slice of the Sierra complete with the night sky and up lights casting the great heights of our trees and lighting throughout the yard. Situated on the deck for your convenience is a 6 person jetted hot tub to relax after those long days on the slopes with a commercial BTU patio heater to ensure the transition from spa to house is not met with the elements. When not playing in the backyard or skiing at the numerous resorts nearby, you can stay connected to the outside with free wi-fi internet with blazing speeds of connectivity. If Blu-Ray is your preferred movie watching experience, then sit back and relax on the 10 person couch with the 47' LCD or get your game on with the Wii console for family entertainment or a Playstation 3 or Xbox 360 with Kinect for those non-stop gaming adventures online or against each other. For those kids who want to watch something else, 2 other 46' LCD TV's are available if there is a disagreement for tv watching with an Apple TV on one and the other having LG’s Netcast to stream internet streaming services like Netflix and Hulu Plus.

If you are looking to relax with music in the house, our Sonos hi-fi wireless digital music system can provide music in separate rooms or group together for one large music party. Movies, games, and regular tv watching are all in high definition with the critically acclaimed Sonos Playbar with earth shattering bass from the Sonos Sub. Stream services such as Spotify or Pandora or create your own internet radio station to play your favorite kind of music. Enjoy crisp highs and rumbling lows as each section of the house has an ability to soothe your music desires.

It may not be a hotel, but hotel linens and towels are there for use. Every bed has contemporary Hotel collection bedding and 400-600 thread count sheets to melt away into a deep sleep. 2 families can easily sleep on the 3 Queen beds, 1 California King bed, and 4 Twin beds. Catch up with restful sleep as the black-out shades turn rooms from day to night anytime of the day.

This home is conveniently located near Safeway and the Heavenly Village shops makes life easy for shopping. The casinos for your night time adventures await 5 minutes down the road. Kirkwood and Sierra at Tahoe are only 20 minutes away by car so skiing options are plentiful and Heavenly is practically in the backyard.

About The Owner

We are a family of five who enjoys South Lake Tahoe so much that we travel 3000 miles just to get there. We reside in Hawai'i full time but have strong ties to South Lake Tahoe and a love of the area. We recently purchased a lovely home and wouldn't mind sharing it with those who are respectful and family oriented like ourselves. We would feel comfortable with those who share our philosophy of family memories and a wonderful place to spend time together.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Bijou Park Acres

We love this area because it is very near Heavenly and the casinos as well as near by to shopping and commerical areas. Safeway is our favorite grocery store and we love the casino nightlife and skiing nearby. This house was by a stroke of luck and we feel that we should preserve its luck and condition as best as we can moving forward.

What makes this house unique

Skiing is close by and casino night life is always attractive. Being close to Safeway makes family meals easy and you never worry about going hungry or being so isolated that civilization isn't nearby but away from it all where the nights are peaceful and quiet.

Awesome home in South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house to spend a weekend in S Lake Tahoe together with 2 other families of friends. The house exceeded all of our expectations. The owner went the extra mile in decorating the house really nicely plus equipping it with a superb sound system, game console, weather station, full kitchen with everything one needs. All in great style. The house was very spacious for 14 of us including several children of ages ranging from 3 to 15.

We had a great time grilling outside and enjoying the hot tub. Also, the location was very convenient for our needs; calm neighborhood and a few miles drive to everything (lake, ski, stores, restaurants, etc).

Would definitely rent again if available.

Owner's Response: Nicholas's family was so kind with their review and I am so happy that he found our home as a perfect match for his family and friends. I really feel great that he was able to take advantage of our backyard as it is one of our highlights for summer because we had put so much into developing it. My hope is that he returns in the summer next year or maybe even this coming ski season. Aloha!

Perfect vacation house!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here last weekend with 11 friends and we had an amazing time! The layout is perfect for groups and the back yard is beautiful. The owners are very organized and leave thorough instructions for everything.

My only qualms were the lack of dish towels! There wasn't much room to dry dishes.

Owner's Response: We were sad to hear that there was a lack of dish towels and why the dish drying rack wasn't left out for the optional hand washing of items instead of the dishwasher for her stay and we've spoken to the cleaning company to address the issues. I just hope that Brittany returns to our home because all the other amenities and house layout will prove that our home is the right match for her group. We hope next stay will yield the 5 star rating. Aloha!

Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

It was a home away from home. This house was beautiful, very clean and spacious. Our family enjoyed their stay here very much . The backyard was so serene! We look forward to coming back.

Owner's Response: Patricia's family was the perfect guests for our home. They constantly kept in touch with me and if alerted me to our vacation rental neighbors unlawfully using our bear box to dump their trash. We felt extremely comfortable with them as our guests and we hope they return to us in the near future. Thank you for all the kind words.

Great property, close to everything!

  • 4 of 5

We were in town for a family wedding and needed to be able to easily get everywhere in town while navigating summer traffic. This house was very well located, only five to ten minutes at most from anything we needed, including downtown, gondola, shopping, etc.

The house was clean and all the bathrooms have clearly been updated. Hot tub was great and then back yard was beautiful and serene.

The only non positive comments we have were the kitchen needs an update (but it is big and well stocked with utensils and cooking tools, so we're being picky.) Also, the upstairs bathroom situation is odd. It is a "jack and Jill" toilet room off of two individual shower and vanity areas. It works and everything is fairly new, but we had two couples and kids upstairs and it was a little strange to have to share the toilet with another couple.

Other than that this house was great and we would absolutely want to stay there again! We loved it enough that the pros absolutely outweighed the very few cons. Also, the owner was great to work with and Very responsive, which was great!!

Owner's Response: It is always great to hear feedback from our guests for our home. We try to explain as best of the bathrooms and room configurations for social dynamics prior to renting but there must have been a disconnect for communication in that respect. The upstairs bathroom was completed in 2016 and we are quite proud of it so I'm sorry it didn't quite meet expectations for luxury. In any event, we have plans for the kitchen to be redone but that endeavor requires significant time and resources to change so we will be looking into that for the future. We hope Vicky's family will return in the near future to see how we can improve her rating to 5/5 stars instead of 4. Thanks for the feedback. Aloha!

Comfortable and clean vacation rental in South Lake Tahoe

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed in Michael's house 4 years in a row now and it never disappoints! Michael is great to work with, the house is always clean and has everything we need. Michael takes great pride and care of this house and is constantly updating the house and adding new technology. Look no further if you're looking for a large, clean, centrally located house that can easily accommodate large groups.

Owner's Response: Bain's family is always welcomed to our home as he is like a family friend staying with us. He is so kind with his review and we are always happy when he contacts us to have his family stay at our home. We try to always improve the house so that each time someone returns to our home there is something new and beneficial for their stay. We hope he chooses to return to our modest home.
