You are here

When planning your North Lake Tahoe vacation, there are many options for accommodations. Vacation rentals offer space to relax and store your lugggage and gear, as well as better pricing per person than hotel rooms. But once you've settled on a short-term rental, you're still faced with many decisions. Do you rent from an online travel agency (OTA) like Airbnb, VRBO, or Booking.com? Or do you go through a professional management company? 

There are several reasons to rent from a local professional management company, like Tahoe Vacation Rentals, instead of renting through an OTA. 

Savings

OTAs often add booking fees to your reservation. These fees can be as high as 10% — even for the exact same properties offered through professional managers. To make the difference even greater, professional managers often offer additional discounts just for booking directly. Check out our current lodging specials!

When you book direct, you'll have more cash for fun Tahoe activities, like paddleboarding, biking, and skiing! 

Free Activities

Many professional managers offer discounts to local businesses. We've partnered with Xplorie to offer a Mountain Escape Pass, which offers free activities for each night you stay. Some of these fun free things to do include snow gear rentals, rafting, bike rentals, and mountain tours. 

Professional Housekeeping

For hotel-quality cleanliness, book with a management company. We've all heard horror stories about unkempt vacation rentals. We use professional housekeepers to keep our properties in tip-top shape.

Local Recommendations

Our reservation team is made up of Tahoe locals who are travel experts. When you book through an OTA, the reservations often aren't from the area — and maybe have never been there. For better trip planning, transportation tips, restaurant recommendations, and even info on the best ski runs, use a local property management company. 

Property Knowledge

Our team visits our properties on a daily basis. That means they know specific details about each house or condo. If you need additional information before booking a property — for example, how far the lifts or the lake are — just give us a call
