Q: Can I bring my pets?
A: We have many pet-friendly homes, although not all of our vacation rental homes allow pets. Guests bringing pets will obtain written approval from a luxury property specialist prior to arrival. Guests pay a pet fee per pet. Pets under one year of age are strictly prohibited. Pets must be house trained and are never allowed on furniture, including beds. Guests will sign an addendum to the rental contract agreeing to the conditions that allow for pets at our homes.

Any requested cancellation must be submitted in writing and sent to Requests must be received more than 60 days prior to arrival for stays less than 31 nights. For stays of 31 nights or longer, 90 days notice is required. You will be refunded the amount paid minus a 10% cancellation fee, excluding any travel insurance payments. The cancellation fee is taxed by counties' Transient Occupancy Tax (TOT) percentage. Your reservation is non-refundable 60 days prior to arrival for stays less than 31 nights and 90 days prior to arrival for stays of 31 nights or longer. We strongly encourage you to purchase travel insurance to alleviate any potential hardship.

Q: Do I need Travel Insurance?
Insurance is offered for purchase with your reservation. Vacation Rental Insurance provides coverage for prepaid, nonrefundable expenses due to unforseeable circumstances. We strongly recommend that you purchase this valuable protection.

Q: Do you allow weddings or small, intimate events?
We do not permit weddings and small events at our vacation rental homes. The occupancy listed on the property page is the maximum occupancy allowed at the home. Additionally, all short-term rentals in the area have parking restrictions and maximum number of vehicles permitted on the property.

Your Vacation Rental Home

Q: What is supplied in the home?
Tahoe Luxury Properties equips each vacation rental with the conveniences and amenities necessary to help you begin your vacation the moment you walk through the door. Some of the rental supplies you can look forward to include everything from beach towels and dish soap to hair dryers and laundry detergent. Be sure to take a look at the full list of supplies you can expect in your Tahoe vacation rental before you start packing for your trip.

Q: Will we have wifi?
Yes, all of our vacation rental homes include internet. Due to the nature of mountain living, internet may be slower than you are accustomed to. We do experience spotty signals and outages during extreme weather conditions. If you plan to work from Tahoe and internet is essential during your stay, please have a back-up plan.

Q: Should we bring bottled water?
No! Our award-winning tap water is some of the finest drinking water in the world! Choose tap water while you are in town, which is better for your health, the environment and your wallet. 

Q: Will my home have air conditioning?
Given our mild summer temperatures, most Tahoe homes do not have air conditioning. If a home does have air conditioning, you will see it listed as an amenity on the property detail page. All homes will have fans provided, typically stored in closets. If you find your home does not have an adequate supply of fans for your needs, we will be happy to deliver additional fans to your home.

Q: Do I need to stop in the office to pick up my key?
 No, the key to your vacation rental home can be found in a lock box by the door at your property, unless the home is on a keyless entry system. You will be provided the lockbox code or keyless entry code prior to arrival. When you arrive in Tahoe, you can go directly to your vacation rental home.

Q: Can I ship items to the home so that they arrive before or during my stay?
 If you require a postal delivery to your vacation rental home, you must use FedEx or UPS. The U.S. Postal Service will not deliver to most street addresses in our area, and packages sent by the U.S. Postal service will be returned to sender. If you expect your package will arrive prior to your arrival, it is preferable to address the packages to our office so that your package is not arriving at an occupied home or sitting outside for too long. Fees for delivery may apply. Due to bear activity in our area, if your package contains food items, it must be shipped to our office. Please call 530.584.3449 to coordinate details.
