Tips To Know Before Renting A Lake Tahoe Vacation Home

Since Lake Tahoe is a travel destination that gets roughly 3 million visitors a year, there truly is no shortage of places to stay when you visit. There are hotels, time shares and vacation rentals ranging from massive lake front mansions to small 1 bedroom condos.  It really comes down to your wants, needs and of course budget. However, vacation rentals offer the perks of being at home while on vacation and can actually save you money in the long run. If you are leaning towards this option, here are some things to be aware of when searching online.

  • When searching for Lake Tahoe vacation rentals, watch out for online listings that are scams. If it is too good to be true, it likely is. Make sure you pick a reputable agency with a long running website, social media pages and customer reviews. Also pay the deposit with your credit card so that you can dispute the card if something goes awry later on. If a rental doesn’t have photo, move along.
  • Have a personal contact you connect with/meet in person when you check in or during your stay. Also make sure your contact isn’t illegally subletting. This could have you out of a place to stay last second. Speaking of, make sure that you get a copy of a rental agreement/terms so that you know your rights.
  • Ask questions. Most Lake Tahoe vacation rentals will have more amenities than a hotel (laundry, full kitchen, large yard, multiple bedrooms, etc.) but if you are looking for something specific be sure to ask about it before you book.
  • Give yourself as much advance notice as possible. Lake Tahoe summers are incredibly busy and winter time can be just the same depending on the amount of snow.
