Overview

Rancho Bijou House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 7-8)

This can be your home for a wonderful stay in South Lake Tahoe! It is clean, updated, and set up for your every comfort and enjoyment. To balance your adventure-filled South Lake Tahoe days, your home comes with an updated kitchen that a chef would delight in, great entertainment possibilities in the form of high speed WiFi Internet, a stereo with an iPod dock, cable television with HBO, Showtime and Cinemax, Play Station 2 with various games, 3 televisions (living room, upstairs master bedroom, and downstairs bedroom), 2 DVD/VHS players, and an easy to use gas fireplace to instantly make your home warm, cozy and inviting. The home is also ideal for families, as it comes with a playroom filled with children's books and toys, a high chair, a Pac-N-Play crib, children's videos, and interior decor with no breakable items within easy reach of little, searching hands! Our beds are also very comfortable, with the two larger beds having firm mattresses with soft eggshell pads on top. Well laid out, two bedrooms upstairs (a beautiful master bedroom with a king-sized bed and second bedroom with a queen-sized bed), one downstairs (3 twins total that includes a twin sized-bed and a twin-sized bunk bed), and a central bathroom on both floors.

Great home for families

Clean, well-kept home in a quiet neighborhood. Our kid loved the playroom.

Better than I expected - a great house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean and all the instructions on how the tv etc worked were very detailed and helpful. We stayed at the house for a couple of days to attend a wedding nearby and were pleasantly surprised at the location (close to town and nearby safeway/restaurants) as well as how great the house was. My kids immediately went to the play room and fell in love with playing with all the toys and games in there. This was probably the best part for us because our 3 and 7 year old were able to entertain themselves for hours by playing with all the toys. We had a very nice time and any questions we had were quickly answered by Ivan via email. Would highly recommend this house and would stay again if we had the chance. thanks so much for having us in your home, we had such a great time!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our stay at the Becka House. The house is cozy, well equipped, well maintained, and located in a quiet neighborhood.

The owner was very responsive and provided great customer services.

I would surely recommend it; it is a great place to stay in while in South Lake Tahoe.

Perfect get away home for families or a group

  • 5 of 5

We went with 6 people, including a 2 1-2 year old. We all had a great time. The home is located 5 mins always from restaurants, the casinos, and shops. Heavenly was also about 5mins. The home is beautiful, and very well kept. The fireplace is wonderful, the kitchen is very large and accommodating, and the rooms and bathrooms are modern and clean. We took advantage of all the snow in the back yard and played back there. I would highly recommend this lovely home. We can't wait to come back. Also the owner is very easy to talk to and replys quickly to any inquiry. Five stars!

Wonderful place for Christmas with the family

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place - so cozy and inviting. We stayed here for 5 nights during the holidays. The 2 upstairs rooms and bathrooms were so lovely and the downstairs rooms were perfect for the kids. One thing to note is that the owner has updated the entertainment systems in the house significantly which the pictures don't show. The CRT in the living room is replaced with large-ish flat screen that has cable and a roku ready with netflix available. The downstairs room with the 3 beds has a small tv with a VCR. One upstairs room has another flat screen and the other room has the CRT TV that was in the living room picture. Another thing to note is that there is no garage so if you have a lot of gear such as skis or snowboards, it might be more comfortable to keep them in the car although there is a small equipment rack near the door.

The heating system was fantastic and responsive. The gas fire place was a nice addition as well. The kids loved the playroom with the toys and they loved the bunk beds. The house is well situated near the Pioneer so easy to get to and the main road/casinos were an easy, quick drive away.

The owner was very responsive and easy to work with. Will definitely keep this place in mind for future trips.

Such a great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Becka house for a brief time towards the end of our California vacation. It was perfect! A lovely, clean, very comfortable house in a quiet neighborhood that is close to all that is available in South Lake Tahoe. The kitchen is large and sitting out on the deck for dinner very peaceful. The owners were very responsive and gave some great tips on things to do while in town. We hope to return someday, maybe in winter to experience another season in Tahoe.

Map

The house is ideally located in close proximity to all that wonderful South Lake Tahoe has to offer. It is across the street from a beautiful, pine forest, and just down the street from Bijou Community Park, which has a children's park, Frisbee golf, regular golf, skate park, and wonderful areas to hike and enjoy the great South Lake Tahoe air. The house is also located very close to Heavenly Ski Resort, Lake Tahoe, casinos, hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, restaurants, boating, cross-country skiing, sightseeing and shopping, the movie theater, and coffee shops!

In short, it is the best of all worlds. Spend your days recreating outdoors and your evenings enjoying this wonderful mountain home with all the ease, comforts, and amenities of modern life!
