Casa Tahoe FAQ's








How many beds are there in CasaTahoe?
There is a queen size bed in the master bedroom as well as in the second bedroom.  The third bedroom has two single beds and a pull out trundle.  The downstairs bedroom has a queen with a single bunk bed on top.  This adds up to a total of three (3) queen size beds and four (4) single beds.  Because of this bed configuration maximum occupancy is eight (8) adults or ten (10) people if your group includes at least 2 children.

What do you mean you have quiet hours? 

South Lake Tahoe has some strong local ordinances that include fines for those tenants that engage in loud noises or disruptive behavior. Quiet hours are from 10pm to 8 am.  Failure to comply with quiet hours could result in loss of your deposit as well as additional fines.  Excessive barking by your pet, even during daytime hours, would also be considered disruptive.

Why do you prohibit use of the hot tub after 10 pm?  Quiet hours apply to hot tub use.  We have permanent residents on both sides of the house who value their peace and quiet.  It's difficult to keep people quiet after they have had a couple of drinks so hot tub use is forbidden during quiet hours.  Noise complaints from the neighbors could forfeit your security deposit, have you face fines from the local authorities or even eviction from the property.

What kind of "hardware" will I find in the kitchen?
The kitchen  is well equipped with a dishwasher and the the following items:  coffee maker, coffee bean grinder, espresso maker, toaster, toaster oven, mini food processor, blender, steamer, electric skillet, electric grill, pizza stone, crock pot, complete set of pots and pans, baking dishes, serving dishes, bar ware (including wine and champagne glasses), popcorn maker, roasting pan, carving set, and waffle maker.  Please e-mail us if your are wondering about a specific item.

Do we need to bring condiments and staples?
From time to time we may run out of some items, but we try to keep in stock mustard, mayo, ketchup, salt, pepper, cooking oil, olive oil, baking soda, baking powder, spices (extensive spice rack), peanut butter, pancake mix and syrup, sugar, flour,  tea and hot chocolate.  There are coffee filters for the coffee maker and there will be a  starter package of coffee for you when you check in.  

What about soap and shampoo?
Each bathroom is supplied with soap, shampoo, conditioner and toilet paper for your convenience.

Do you have a BBQ grill?
Yes, on the back deck you will find a propane grill that is ready to go summer or winter (we keep a spare tank full in the garage).  There are BBQ tools and plastic dishes and glasses for enjoying the picnic table outside.

How far away am I from the casinos?
I guess that all depends where you are now.  The casinos are about six miles away at Stateline.  Driving time under normal conditions is about 10-15 minutes.

How far is the cabin from Heavenly and other ski resorts ?
Heavenly is about 5 miles, Sierra at Tahoe and Homewood are about 12 miles.  Kirkwood is about 35 miles.   Alpine is about 35 miles North on Highway 89 and Squaw Valley is under 40 miles.

What amenities do you provide?  We offer wired and wireless internet access to those guests that bring their own computers.  In the garage you will find two bikes, one men's and one women's.  We also have plastic sleds and a pair of "loaner" skis and boots (165 cm, men size 9).  The backyard is fully fenced and has a BBQ grill.  The hot tub is also on the backyard deck and is operational all year round, but subject to quiet hours.  In the  living room you  will find a CD player, cable TV, VCR/DVD.  Downstairs at the rec room you will also find a TV/VCR/DVD plus  an extensive video library, books, games for kids and adults.

Do you have a washer and dryer?  Yes, we have a washer and dryer for your use.
