My vacation Homes are in So Cal, Lake Tahoe, Pass-a-grille and St. Pete Beach, FL
* I set myself apart from the others by accommodating renters requests. But please understand and do not contact me a couple hours before your check out in hopes of a late check out. All requests should be done before you book or before you check in. For insight on how it works on my side, I have to schedule housekeepers, cleaning companies and hot tub cleaning services in advance of your arrival. All these companies have schedules for the check out days so if you contact me in the middle of the night or an hour before check out I can't always accommodate the request because those services may already have you down to clean right at check out time. Thanks for your cooperation.
*Please read online and in contract. If the house is not pet friendly and you bring your pet you will lose your whole deposit. This has escalated steadily in recent months. Please follow the house rules. Thanks.
PLEASE READ Updated on 1/9/15 ATTENTION BAY AREA AND SILICON VALLEY AIRBNB RENTERS: Whats made me very successful as a vacation rental property owner and manager is airbnb and my northern cali vacation renters. Thank you all. Every renter wants to get an awesome property for a low price. I have prided myself on keeping the costs as low as I can for my renters over the past 7 years and here is the easiest way for me to keep the prices low so you get great deals:
I rent on over 50 websites, for whatever reason I am starting to have dozens of problems with Bay area and Silcon Valley airbnb renters when and after they are checking out. The biggest problems are checking out late/checking out way past check out time and leaving the properties absolutely filthy. Your fellow hometown neighbors are giving you all a bad name. Please complete the check out list before you leave the property, please bring your respect and manners from your home to our Lake Tahoe Vacation rental homes. I know everyone is on vacation and want to have a worry and care free time but please pack your common sense with you. Please dont put me in the position of being the bad guy and having to put a hold on your deposit or having to take money out of the deposit to pay for damages and extra cleaning fees. Basically this is how it works, When there is property damage, late check outs that back up the cleaning company, hot tub company, and your fellow airbnb renters from checking in on time in the afternoon I have to pay all these companies by the hour to wait around and or extra time to clean, that of course gets charged on your deposit and passed on to the future renters by having to raise rent prices to compensate for the losses. Its a domino affect. So please for your airbnb community of renters, all vacation renters, and for your future vacation stays please dont be bulls in a china store. Accidents happen and no one is perfect, but I went from only having 2 claims in 7 years from all my websites combined to over 2 dozen just this past year on airbnb. Thank you for your patronage and lets make 2015 a great year!
I have been renting since 2007. Please Please, if you have a question, concern, issue, or problem contact me by call, text, email, or airbnb message when you are checking in, during your stay, or checking out. I am hearing about problems days and even weeks after you checked out. I can't help you that late in the game, but I can for sure help you and take care of your needs and wants when you are at the vacation rental. I have staff members, hot tub company, maintenance specialists, and cleaning companies on call 24/7 and I rent over 80 vacation rentals so if there is a problem with your vacation rental I can usually move you to another property.
Looking or wanting a discount or deal?!
Best time to get one and ask is during the non holiday weekdays(Sunday - Thursday) and non peak weekends in April, May, October, and November. DURING THESE NON PEAK MONTHS IF YOU BOOK TWO NIGHTS I GIVE YOU THE THIRD NIGHT FREE.

A NEW PROBLEM THAT IS COMING MORE AND MORE PREVALENT IN LAKE TAHOE: A lot of my awesome Lake Tahoe renters are from the Bay Area. I know its a long drive to Tahoe, and when you get here you want to go skiing, to the bars/clubs and casinos, for now on, as of 2/1/2014, if you are planning on checking in late you must contact me and give me your approximate time of arrival, I am having renters show up at 3am trying to check in, its dark, freezing cold, and the majority are coming back from the bars and casinos and having difficulty using the key less lock box. 4pm is check in at all my rentals, I do not care when you check in after 4pm, its your vacation, just please communicate with me when you plan on arriving so either myself or my employees are able to assist you at anytime of the day or night if you are having difficulty finding the address or gaining entrance to the property. Thanks.
