About Nolan J. Arieta

Good morning and I look forward to accommodating you for your upcoming South Lake Tahoe vacation!

Allow me to introduce myself: my name is Nolan J. Arieta and I am a full-time Doctor of Physical Therapy here in the San Francisco Bay Area, (specifically in Pleasant Hill, California). I also own and manage this vacation rental property where I work hard to offer the best Tahoe experience for the price, because I do not have time to argue pricing. I keep my rates affordable all year long, (3 bedroom house w/ Hot Tub for only $99 per weeknight, non-holiday).

Nolan J. Arieta purchased this house in 2004

Why Nolan J. Arieta chose Rancho Bijou

South Lake Tahoe is the most beautiful destination within a day's drive from the Bay Area, L.A., and only a hop, skip, and a jump from Sacramento. There is just something alluring about this beautiful Lake and definitely my favorite place on Earth. I welcome you to share the beauty of this wonderful place at my vacation home in South Lake Tahoe.

What makes this house unique

My aim is to give people more for less: I don't know of any 3 bedroom houses in the Tahoe Basin featuring a private hot tub, that allows pets for no extra charge that offers off-season $99 weeknight prices.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Stayed at this nice house over the weekend with my boyfriend. It was a nice cabin feeling especially to end the winter season up in Tahoe and the hot tub is only minutes away from the California base lodge at Heavenly. Can't beat the price for a nice tahoe cabin and a great sized backyard for the dogs.

Very good quality for the price.

  • 5 of 5

Upon entering I was surprised by how roomy and clean the cabin was. Very soft and comfortable beds with clean and nice smelling sheets. Amply stocked bathroom with plenty of towels. Enormous back yard and huge spa. Less than two blocks entrance from the park so we were able to walk our dogs close with no trouble. Safeway is close, same with the ski lifts/ casinos. PERFECT location. I have no greivances.

I did overlook the fact that this place has barely any cable and no garage. If I looked at the ad more closely I would have realized it was not disclosed that there was any. We just had to be careful with our snowboard equipment bringing it into the home and rented from redbox. This wasn’t a deal breaker in any way and I would happily reccomend this cabin to a friend and return to rent again. The only reason I bring this up is just in case seasoned vacation renters like myself might overlook this like I did. We would’ve brought our PlayStation if we had realized it.

Props to Nolan for being very prompt in responses. I had no stress booking or being at this cabin. Thank you.

Quiet neighborhood next to everything

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you walk into the home it is very cozy and inviting! We had a wonderful stay here and the fact we were able to bring our dog for our family vacation made it that more special. Nolan is absolutely a great host and very quick to respond to any questions you may have. The home is only minutes from the downtown area making its location perfect. The bed we slept on was absolutely comfortable and the kitchen had everything we could need for our stay. Overall a wonderful experience that went very smooth and can’t wait to visit again!

Size of the property was wonderful for what we needed. Backyard and hot tub were exactly as expected

  • 3 of 5

The furniture was very out dated and every piece of it was mismatched. On top of that most of the dressers had drawers that were broken. The kitchen had most all appliances that you would need. Including lots of mismatched dishes and drink wear that had been left from other guest throughout the years. There is a water issue when you shower. The curtain that is there does not keep the water in the tub, therefore you end up having to use towels on the floor or you will end up with water that goes all the way out to the carpet. It is an older property so lots of these issues are to be expected. After staying at this property you can tell that the pride of ownership is lacking immensely. It was a little disappointing is all. This did not keep my guest and I from enjoying our stay in the least. Just if these minor things were taken into consideration we could have given a 5 star review.

Owner's Response: Good morning and I would like to personally prove this review wrong. First of all, I updated new leather couches in the living room just 2 months ago, fully remodeled kitchen with newer appliances. The shower curtain is simply a regular shower curtain. If you know how to operate a standard shower curtain you should be just fine. The dishes in the kitchen are primarily from 2 sets that I brought up there personally. There have been no dishes brought and left behind by previous renters. The dressers in the bedrooms are all functional and my 4.4 star out of 5 rating with over 100 reviews posted are proof that my pride of ownership is right where it needs to be.

Loved it!! House was perfect for our family.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. It was perfect for our family and dogs. It’s location was great as we were only minutes away from the Heavenly ski resort, the village, casinos, and the lake. The home was super cozy, clean, and had everything we needed. The dog friendly backyard was a plus. We definitely will be back as we have found our favorite vacation rental in Tahoe. Couldn’t have been better and can’t wait to come back. Thank you Nolan for everything.
