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 or 3 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 is about 45 minutes 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.

4th Time Staying Here because it's so great!

  • 5 of 5

Michael is such a great host! I've been returning every year for the past 4 years and he's always very accommodating and flexible. It's also great to see that he's constantly investing in the property, introducing new fixtures and renovation every year. Again, great place to stay for a big family!

Owner's Response: Lai's family is always a joy to host and we are always so happy that they return to us. They now are practically family since it's been so many years in a row. I love when guests return and it makes it such a pleasurable experience that we can't wait for them to return. They can notice all the great changes and upgrades... I look forward to many more years together.

Owner's Response: Malcom was great to have as a guest. I was a bit nervous at first but he more than assured me that the house was going to be taken care of and he held his word to the letter. I hope he returns to us in the near future and thank you again for being such a great guest.

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of friends come for a few days to ski and hang out. It was a terrific house. Everything that it says in the description and more. We really enjoyed our time, lots of technology (Which was fun for me) and a great location. Less than 10 minutes to a couple different lodges at Heavenly and then not a bad drive to several other mountains. We will definitely come back here when we come back to Tahoe! Thank you for a great stay

Owner's Response: Daniel's group was really a great group for the home and it was truly a privilege to host him. The house was great after they left and it made it easier for the cleaning company to clean the house for the next guest checking in that day. I really hope he keeps us on his short list for possible places to stay in South Lake. Aloha!

The house again was comfortable with plenty of space for the families staying there. Easy proximity to all the south lake activities we do as a family. Also we love grilling on the patio and using the hot tub.
