Rancho Bijou House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

This family friendly property is the perfect place to spend a weekend or week enjoying the fresh mountain air of South Lake Tahoe. This cozy 2 bedroom home is close to everything Tahoe has to offer. The 2 bedrooms provide privacy for up to 4 guests while another 2 can sleep in the living room by the fire.

The outdoor deck provides a great place to have a cup of coffee or glass of wine and relax under the pine trees. Sit under the umbrella at the table and chairs while you watch the BBQ. Curl up on the private patio to read or just share a fire with someone special.

!!! Summer renters enjoy a pass to a private beach only minutes away from the house!!!

Why Christina Read chose South Lake Tahoe

We love coming up to SLT to relax, head down to the beach or up to the slopes. Having a nice glass of red wine on the deck in front of the fireplace is a fabulous way to spend an evening too!

What makes this house unique

We are lucky enough to be close to it all. The marina, slopes, beaches, and casinos are all 2 miles away or less. We also love being next to Bijou Park where we play frisbee and regular golf in the summer and snowshoe and cross country ski in the winter. It's only two blocks away!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect for a weekend getaway. So cozy with the fireplace, and tons of movies. Huge backyard with firepits, and plenty of outdoor seating. We plan to take a trip back in the summer.

Convenient and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our 5-month old baby and my sister-in-law. We were in town for a wedding and had a great time. This property was really nice. The location was very convenient - close to shopping, park, lake, golf, etc. The house itself was cozy, very clean, organized, and comfortable. One of the best DVD selections I've ever seen! We would stay here again and recommend it!

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay, Great accommodations and great location, we rented mountain bikes at and hit the local trails, along with hike to vikingsholm and part of the rubicon trail.

The 2 bed 1 bath house was quiet and very comfortable, The directions were easy to follow, We would definitely stay there again, Had to be patient using the digital entry lock, it took about 20 attempts at arrival and departure to open the lock, but once inside used the key lock for the duration of trip, then re-locking at check-out was the same.

But still an excellent visit at the lake house, (must have transportation.)

homey feel

  • 4 of 5

Place was nice and clean. It was kid friendly, my niece enjoyed the books and games available for kids. It was conveniently located near downtown and grocery stores. Only complaint we have is that the water heater never warmed up. Being that we went mid September the weather was starting to cool down which made it difficult to shower in cold water.

Owner's Response: Doris, I'm sorry you didn't read the house information sheets I sent. I wish you had called me. The water heater must be turned up when you arrive. I went and checked it after your visit and it was working great. I had a VERY hot shower.

Cozy, great location, full of features

  • 5 of 5

I'm hesitant to write this review because the property was perfect in so many ways that I want to keep it all to myself! =) In all seriousness, the property has so many things going for it: great location (anything you likely want to do in SLT is within a short driving distance, plus a nearby park within walking distance); cozy, clean, well-maintained, and comfortable (a "homey" feel to it, not too extravagant, yet far from spartan); "well-stocked" (outdoor table and chairs + BBQ and fire pit for some backyard relaxing, TV and wide selection of DVDs for some downtime/late night movie-watching if needed, beach chairs and other equipment you can borrow, books and board games to entertain the kids, etc.). It's a perfect size for a family of 4-6. We'd definitely rent this again in a heartbeat.
