Unlike hotels, South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals usually come furnished with an array of extras, from fully stocked kitchens to well-equipped supply closets to paddle boards to baby gear. However, when searching for South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals, we always recommend finding out what the home includes before booking. Especially if you have special requests! Perhaps you would prefer your vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe to have baby furniture. Or maybe you hope that the home has some type of ski or snow equipment available. While some vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe come fully equipped and create that true “home away from home” experience, some do not. As we have a wide variety of vacation rentals in South Lake Tahoe, we can usually recommend an alternative if one property does not fit the bill. Here is our quick list of items easily overlooked when packing to stay in South Lake Tahoe vacation rentals.
Spices: The perk of staying in a Lake Tahoe vacation rental is that you have your own kitchen that you can cook in. most kitchens in our vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe come stocked with most of the basics. However, if you are into a certain style of cooking with hard to find spices and ingredients, pack them!
Toys & Games: A lot of the vacation rentals in Lake Tahoe have these. However, if you know someone in your group is really into a specific one they have at home, pack it along just to be on the same side.
Baby Gear: Like we said previously, some of the Lake Tahoe vacation rentals may come with this equipment, but babies can be very specific about what they like. After all, not just any bouncer or swing will do! If you know you could be losing sleep if their MamaRoo isn’t there, consider bringing it along or shipping it and time it with your arrival.
Clothes for every season: This is a mountain town, ya’ll! The weather changes fast and sometimes with no notice. We just said farewell to summer with snowfall on the very last day. If you are coming in the summer, consider packing a warmer outfit just in case. The temps do dip down to the 40’s at night. And for the winter, still bring that bathing suit! You may find a hot tub at your vacation rental in Lake Tahoe!
Health & wellness items: Bandaids, aloe, SPF, supplements, that protein powder you like and more should be packed. Your Lake Tahoe vacation rental may have some first aid kit supplies, but should you need something specific, bring it along. It is better to have it than have to run out and try to track down the item in need or something comparable.
Electronics charger: Don’t forget the phone, laptop, tablet and camera chargers! Not only are specific ones hard to find, but they are also expensive.
For more information on what is needed, always inquire at booking what is and isn’t included! We try to create the ultimate getaway experience, but every inventory list differs. As we like to say, know before you go!
