We have a four bedroom/three bath home and rent three bedrooms; guests occasionally see us in the lodging. It's fun to offer lodging near the base of Squaw Valley USA where our guests arrive from all over the world. Once they find us, it’s wonderful to welcome them back again and again.
Our lodging is like visiting friends or relatives. Your guestroom has a King-size Bed and a twin-size pullout bed with memory foam mattress if you wish to use it and (all linens provided), hair dryer and towels. When the room has three people the walking space in the room is tight, so we recommend the room for one or two people. However, the room will sleep up to three people in beds. It shares a bathroom across the hall from it with one other bedroom. Bathroom has a shower; bodywash, shampoo & conditioner provided. An additional half bathroom is closeby. High-speed internet is throughout the cabin and your television has DirecTV with over 250 channels. A fan in each guestroom can bring the mountain air right inside. BUSINESS TRAVELERs, often use the adjustable height DESK with a CHAIR that are stored in the closet along with additional blankets and pillows.
KITCHEN: Yes, come use the kitchen! We have plenty of space for multiple cooks at the same time. It is well equipped with basic spices/olive oil, 6 burner professional stove top, two ovens (conventional and convection), refrigerator, guest food storage, microwave and cooking island with prep sink. It is furnished with all you will need to cook your favorite meals: plates, silverware, glasses, cups, pots and pans, Breville toaster, Keurig Coffee Maker with a variety of coffee and teas, hot chocolate and spiced cider, as well as an Italian Gaggia espresso machine. And if cooking on your vacation days is not your thing, consider bringing the makings for your favorite lunches, snacks and breakfast.
SCENIC LIVING ROOM has 23 ft ceiling and walls of mostly glass. Enjoy our view of the giant, rugged mountains that surrounds the valley!
BATHROOMS are shared: perhaps like visiting friends and relatives, two guestrooms share a bathroom. An additional half bath is on the main entry floor.
FLAT PARKING PAD. Store your skies/snow boards in your car. We have a place to keep your ski boots inside the cabin. WE ENCOURAGE GUESTS TO ARRIVE BY CAR. One parking space per room.
Interaction with guests
We come and go… and guests come and go. I think the reason that people choose our lodging is because they look for a comfortable "Enjoy Tahoe Like a Local" experience... and find it with us. To Relax, Refresh, Unwind… this is the place. Come enjoy our home and our beautiful views of Squaw Valley.
Other things to note
Local 10% Lodging Tax is NOT included in the AirBnB’s rates in our county and is due in cash on arrival. Please notice that there is no cleaning or security fee… because we want you to feel welcome and come stay with us again. :-)
Early arrival/late checkout can often be arranged at $20/hr.
Wintertime, beat miles of ski traffic coming from Tahoe City and Truckee when you stay at our lodging… we are just a mile from the parking lot at Squaw Valley USA! As with all lodgings at Tahoe, you must be experienced with driving in the mountains with possible ice and heavy snow. Make sure you have AWD or 4WD with snow tires. At the very least… carry chains with snow tires. Simply, be prepared. Sometimes the weather can surprise you!
Lastly, we are in and out, and cannot accept packages for you. If you need to send yourself a package, send it to YOUR NAME, Post Office “Will Call", Olympic Valley, CA 96146 where you can pick it up on arrival.
IMPORTANT – Please Read:
Everyone comes to Tahoe for a different reason… and always to have a great experience. For the comfort of everyone...
MAXIMUM number of people (of any age, including infants) in this room is three and each person needs to be OVER the age of 12 years old. If you need additional space, our other room titles start with ##1 and ##2 and have the SAME wording as this room. Accepting visitors and add-on guests must be discussed PRIOR to arrival. For my reservations book, please send me the first name of the person(s) lodging with you. Guests need to be able to climb stairs.
Because of host’s allergies, we have no animals and absolutely no guest animals are allowed. No candles and though smoking is NOT permitted in our lodging, it is fine to smoke outside on the parking pad. This is a Shoe-Free house with shelves for your shoes right inside the front door.
If there are other guests in the house, use of the kitchen, dining and living room ends at 9pm. Eating and drinking is in the dining area only, not in the bedrooms.
>> Bathrooms. We have a four bedroom / three bath house; two bedrooms share a bathroom that is next door to their room and an additional half bath is on the main floor. Yes, it is probably like staying at one of your friend’s or relative’s house.
>> PARKING: With the extreme snow conditions that we have this Winter, each GUESTROOM is LIMITED TO ONE CAR SPACE. Non-snow time, you are welcome to contact host to see if an additional space is available for you.
>> Mountain weather is unpredictable… MAKE SURE YOU ARE AN EXPERIENCE DRIVER in SNOW CONDITIONS when planning a trip to Tahoe during the winter. You will need to have AWD or 4WD with snow tires. Or at LEAST chains with snow tires when there is even the possibility of snow on the road. Wayne Avenue has some steepness to it.
>> Cancellation details: Please note that our lodging has a 30-Day Strict Cancellation Policy. This means that IF you have a change of plans or needs, health issues, weather/road problems or closures or your favorite goldfish is sick... yes, for ANY reason, your must cancel 30 or more days BEFORE the start of your reservation. READ AIRBNB’s Definition of "30 Day Strict”. Per AirBnB, person paying for lodging must be one of the guests lodging with us.
>> Taxes: Unfortunately, AirBnB DOES NOT COLLECT our local Placer County 10% County Room Tax. It is up to each lodging host to collect it. Please provide payment In Cash On Arrival; we are not set up for credit card payment.
>> Arrival: very flexible… any time after 2pm. I like knowing when people will be coming in, so please send me your approximate time of arrival. If this changes, simply text me. When arrival is after 9pm, please try to enter quietly.
We do not provide breakfast or any meals, but I often gift my guests a little sweet treat to go with their coffee, tea, hot chocolate or spiced cider in the morning. It could be muffins, pound cake or a breakfast pastry. Please let me know if you are gluten-free or have allergies to nuts.
We really enjoy being AirBnB Superhosts. It is important to us to have our guests feel welcome and we hope you will enjoy what we have to offer.
