COUNTY RENTAL LAWS
(Pertains to all homes in Tahoe)
1. 10pm - 8am is the county quiet time for all rentals
2. Trash goes into the bear box only and is not to be left outside
3. We cannot host extra people at this home or allow parties.
4. No extra cars, parking on the street OR on the dirt.

Please note:
- ECONOMY: We have this home is listed as economy as it’s all original so keep that in mind before booking. It is well taken care of and clean, it’s just not top of the line. Please be nice when reviewing 🙂
- BBQ: Please don’t move the gas BBQ and keep it where it is. Owners want it there for fire safety reasons.
- PERSONAL ITEMS: Owners have a lot of personal decor items in the living room. Please keep out of reach of children.
- ONE SMART TV: There is only one TV in the living room.
- QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD: This home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood. In Tahoe, it’s so quiet at night that you could hear a pin drop. As a result, we prefer to host quiet groups that will abide by all of the county laws. We appreciated it!
- TRAVEL INSURANCE: We HIGHLY recommend that all of our lovely guests purchase travel insurance, as we normally do NOT refund for COVID, smoke, fires, weather, snow storms, road closures, etc. We cannot stress this enough.
- WINTER TRAVEL WARNING: During the Winter, it’s required by law that all vehicles in Tahoe carry chains, even 4WD vehicles. It is NOT recommended that you come in a mini van, Tesla or other low profile vehicle. Our roads are steep and icy so even when it’s not snowing, Tahoe is hard to navigate. We recommend SUVs, Subarus and Trucks with snow/all-terrain tires. We also recommend having some Winter driving experience.
- POWER OUTAGES: Power outages are VERY common in Tahoe. They are especially common during Winter storms. Tahoe homes do not have generators so if the power goes out, the heat might also go out. Coming to Tahoe during the Winter requires a lot of patience and a sense of adventure.
- NO AC: This home, like most in Tahoe, does not have AC but we do provide fans.
- HOME OWNER OWNED: This home is owned by a family or private owner and not by an investor, so you will be renting someone’s home. Grand Welcome does not own this home but helps the owner to manage it.
- HIGH FIRE RISK: Lake Tahoe is a high-risk fire area. Fireworks, wood fire pits, smoking/improper disposal of cigarette butts and charcoal BBQs are STRICTLY prohibited.
- BEARS: Bears and other wildlife frequent this area so make sure to lock up when you leave the home, always lock your car doors and view from afar.
- MOUNTAIN LIFE: Spiders, cobwebs and little mountain mice are common in the mountains. 
- BBQ/DECKS: The BBQ is not serviced and the decks are not shovelled in the winter due to the low temperatures and high snow levels.
- DAMAGE WAIVER: Built into your clean fee is an “Accidental Damage Waiver Policy”. You are covered for anything seen as accidental and anything seen as neglectful, you may be charged for. It’s best to report all damage to us when it occurs. We are pretty understanding!
- SECURITY: Most of our homes have exterior only security cameras and noise decibel monitoring systems to ensure we are in compliance with the county ordinance but we take our guests privacy VERY seriously. There is never indoor cameras and the exterior ones are not monitored. Most owners only look to see bears and snow levels 🙂
- SATISFACTION: If you are in anyway not satisfied, please text our local team as we prefer to handle issues when you are here to ensure your stay with us exceeds expectations! If we are alerted to issues after check out, you may not be refunded so it’s important to report them right away.
- REVIEWS: “If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.” Same is true for reviews. We please ask that you have some grace and compassion when leaving them and we will do the same when we review you. Remember, that this is someones home before it’s a rental. The owners will see and take your review to heart. Very much appreciated! #spreadlovenothate

Fine but dated

by phillip w.
The house is nice, but everything inside is very old. For example they have a bunch of VHS tapes for you to watch. There was a serious ant problem.

Enjoyed our stay

by John A.
Enjoyed our stay at the property as it was well kept and they provided everything needed for a convenient stay. There was an ant problem in the kitchen area which was unexpected considering the overall cleanliness.

Quiet, bright, lovely

by Adrienne M.
We really enjoyed our stay here. It’s the perfect rental for those who are looking for a quiet place to unwind after a day outdoors. We loved all the natural light in the house and the house is set up perfect for a family with children. Highly recommended for those looking for a place away from the hectic tourist-ness that South Shore can be. We hope this home is available for our next trip to Tahoe!
