We had a wonderful stay at the Balbijou house. Everything and more was provided for a great get away. Other than some construction that was going on in the neighborhood, all was good. Just a short walk to good restaurants and having the Timberline Marina next door was a big plus. We would definitely choose this rental again.
We spent Labor Day Week at the house. It was wonderful. The only bad part is there is only seating for 8 or 9 for a meal. The table seats 4 and the bar with very uncomfortable stools seats 4 or 5. We had 3 children with us and they needed to sit at the table. There was a wonderful long picnic table outside but no benches or chairs that would work with it. The only reason I did value as poor, is because the price is really raised for the holiday weekend. It is a great value any other time
From the photos, this place looked pretty nice, and it looked like it would work for our group. When we showed up, I was blown away with how night it was! There were 3 times as many beds as I thought there were going to be! The whole house surround sound system (including the beach) was epic. Just exactly whay we needed!!! The location is just about perfect - you're walking distance from just about anything you'd need. Not to mention all your rentals are right next door. The private beach was awesome as well. Just a great place. I would recommend this to anyone. But I won't, because I want it!!

The place is perfectly located, that's why I choose it! Great for a lot of people!! Great party place. We had some very very memoriable times. So happy we stayed there. Simple and nicely redecorated. Stairway outside - which is the silliest thing ever. Elevator difficult to get use to and noone closed the gate so rarely used. Beds not that comfortable.
Right on the lake! The view never lost its magic!!! This is a beautiful and well appointed house. Bring your bathing suit and tooth brush, they have everything else covered. Huge common areas and three stories provided lots of space to hang-out together or relax by yourself. The house never felt cramped even with our very large group. We like to cook and appreciated the large fridge (plus another in the garage), top of the line appliances, plentiful kitchen ware (cooking, serving and eating) and a cadillac of a grill. The private beach right on the lake was worth its weight in gold. No packing up the car with kids, food and toys to fight for a place at the beach. The kids would play in the water, come in and eat, change clothes, watch princess movies, change back into suits and head out to the water...all day long. A chair pulled lakeside was the prefect place to spend the day with a good book. Nights were for sitting under the stars and roasting marshmallows over the fire-pit for smores. Relaxing with a glass of vino listening to the gentle lapping of the waves was heaven! Early am coffee while watching the lake change with the morning light was a highlight! The location is prefect..like a private oasis in the middle of everything. Close to grocery stores, restaurants, casinos, hiking and water toy rentals. You really do get what you pay for with this house! Everyone (especially Eric) at Cb-mckinney was very helpful and all transactions with them were quick and easy. Only complaint was the very noisy upstairs elevator door..so squeaky it would wake the kids at night so we had to use the outside stairs. Fix that and you have a prefect house. Obviously we loved it!!!
Balbijou delivers!! Stayed here for an extended weekend to celebrate a bachelor leaving the world of unmarried men and was ecstatic with the decision. We actually did have plans to go out at night to casinos and bars but we all enjoyed the house with its amenities (pool table and ping pong and the outdoor firepit) so much we did most of our partying at the house! We got lucky with some great neighbors There is a public beach a short 2 minute stroll away to hang with the locals and a bar/restaurant on the pier to watch the sunset or enjoy some warm afternoon cold beers. The house itself is in great condition and would fit nearly everyone's requirements. For a large group Balbijou is worth the cost and will be top of my list if i make it back for another summer Tahoe adventure.
We and all of our guests had a wonderful time at the house. The house is very nicely decorated and clean; spacious, even with a large group; well-equiped with enough dishes to feed an army; enough beds to accomodate a variable group of people; plenty of bathrooms; and the beach, fire pit, lawn furniture, and bbq's just added to the whole weekend. I'd highly recommend this rental home to anyone. We all got a kick out of the elevator!
The South Lake Tahoe area is filled with amazing activities for the whole family. For the skiiers and snowboarders, Heavenly Mountain Resort offers some great powder during the winter time. The Gondola at this resort is one of the most popular attractions in all of Tahoe. If you're looking for other outdoor options, though, such as hiking, mountain biking, or nature walks, be sure you hit up the Mount Tallac Trail, Pope Beach, Taylor Creek, Lower Eagle Falls, Van Sickle Bi-State Park, or the Bijou Community Park (disc golf is popular here). The South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena offers some great ice skating year round and Adventure Mountain is a great place to sled in the winter. Some other activities you might consider are hot-air-balloon rides, helicopter tours, boat tours, nature tours, wine-tasting tours, and heritage tours. For the educationally minded, Valhalla at Lake Tahoe and the Lake Tahoe Historical Society Museum offer great historical information about the area. You can even catch your own dinner at the Tahoe Trout Farm! If being indoors is more your style, South Lake Tahoe has tons of great restaurants, bars, spas, galleries, and shops. Like the rest of Tahoe, there's plenty of access to kayaking, canoeing, boating, paddleboarding, and parasailing in this area, too. One of the best outdoor activities, though, is Regan Beach, which gets crowded but offers some great swimming and some stunning views. Oh, and you might drive a bit north to check out Fallen Leaf Lake, too! It's a great photo opportunity.
