Overview

Bijou Park Acres House Rental Photos and Description

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 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2010, this 2700+ sq ft home is 5 bedrooms 3 full baths of contemporary modern living.

Added for 2016 is an 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.

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. Alpine Meadows 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 South Lake Tahoe

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.

Incredible week!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week and it couldn't have been more perfect. The home has gathering areas perfect for large families and we enjoyed the ample space in the kitchen. Also, let's just talk about the bathrooms for a sec.. AMAZING. Each one is like stepping into a spa. We already miss them. The beds are comfortable and the location is perfect. You are close enough to the lake that it's accessible within a few minutes but you don't have to deal with the traffic and tourists the come with staying at a lodge. The backyard is absolutely incredible. We are most of our meals outside and spent many evenings playing spike ball on the lawn. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! We all agreed that this was our favorite family trip to date!

Owner's Response: Stephanie's family is too kind. We are so happy that our renovations are done and that they are completely appreciated. We worked tirelessly with our subcontractors to make sure every detail was paid attention to and the result is private spa. I really hope Stephanie keeps us on her list to return to our home because she was an absolute delight to share our home with.

Outstanding Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our party consisted of three families, 12 people total. There was plenty of room and everyone had a bed to sleep in. The house was very accommodating with plenty of space for all to move around. We never felt crowded. The house is loaded with amenities. Just about anything that you would find yourself needing. Much more than any other house we have rented in Tahoe. Our favorite part of the house was the backyard. Beautiful, peaceful and such a great place to hangout and visit. Plenty of seating, a nice BBQ and a great hot tub. Thank you Michael and family for providing such a great vacation home for us to stay in.

Owner's Response: Jeff's family and guests were great while staying at our home. We appreciated their feedback while staying for how clean the property was and how comfortable they were during their stay. We are always really happy when our guests are happy. I know that they could fully take advantage of all our upgrades to the property and enjoy a very long process to renovate the upstairs bathroom that truly offer the luxury that is already there inside the house. Thank you again Jeff and your family, please return to us in the future.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at the Tahoe house. The remodeled bathroom upstairs was beautiful! Accommodations were great and the whole family had a wonderful time. We'll probably make this our family reunion home each summer. Close to the lake, casinos, shops and other entertainment for the kids. The couches were very comfy for those afternoon naps, too! About the only thing you could possibly add would be a pool!

Owner's Response: Lisa's family was a perfect match and a great way to get feedback for our home as she and her family were returning guests and could directly see all the upgrades we've made. The upstairs bathrooms now rival and perhaps exceed the luxury from the downstairs bathrooms. With an intelligent toilet, heated floors, and a full 3 valve master shower that can easily fit 3-6 people to shower the most efficiently we can now confidently offer what everyone deserves while on vacation in our home. I hope Lisa does continue staying at our home and we shall look into the pool option! ;)

Owner's Response: Carly's family was so great to stay at our home and right at the tail end of our construction and could see all the upgrades we've done to the house from the massive walk in shower to the heated floors for the upstairs bathrooms. I hope she returns to us soon and she was a joy to work with in staying at our home. Aloha!

Beuatiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay. Everything was very nice, clean, and comfortable. The house was well supplied. The couches were extremely comfortable, the surround sound and the intelligent toilet was a nice addition. (Don't use the intelligent toilet if your are not smarter than the intelligent toilet) lol. The backyard was beautiful and weather was delightful so we BBQ'd every day.The location is perfect as it's close to everything Michael was great to work with and was detail oriented. I highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Julie's family was so gracious to leave us these kind words. We really try to go above and beyond what you would expect to see in a vacation rental. We really like to share our home with those who truly can appreciate the thought behind every upgrade and renovation... especially the intelligent toilet. ;) We really hope Julie returns to our home when she decides to return to South Lake Tahoe.

Great House for our Yearly Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It's tough finding a nice, affordable house in Lake Tahoe that can fit a group our size. This house is the perfect combination of size, location and price! The pictures of the house don't do it justice. The newly remodeled bathrooms are top notch, and the back deck and gazebo are perfect for warm summer evenings.

This is by far the cleanest and most well maintained property we have stayed at. The attention to detail is obvious as soon as you pull in to the driveway.

Michael was very responsive to our needs and we look forward to staying here for many more summers to come!

Owner's Response: Brian's family and guests were an absolute delight to have and what was more rewarding is that he has stayed at our home a long time ago and can appreciate all the upgrades in renovations we've taken upon ourselves to complete. The newest addition of our upstairs renovated bathrooms matches the luxury we have in our downstairs bathrooms. From the intelligent toilet with bidet options to the shower tower of relaxation while bathing make spa like qualities accessible when you stay at our home. Brian's family was very flexible with our renovations and we really appreciate how easy it was to work with him. I really hope he returns again to see the finished product and I welcome him anytime.
