Payment: A payment is due within 2 days of reserving a property, with the full balance of rent, tax and cleaning due 30 days prior to arrival. Holiday payments may differ. We accept VISA, Master Card, Personal Check or Money Order. Should your personal check be returned for any reason, there will be a $35 returned check fee added to your balance.

Additional Fees: Each property located in the South Lake Tahoe City Limits is subject to 10% city tax on rent and cleaning plus $4.50 per night (Tourism Improvement District tax implemented by the City of South Lake Tahoe). Any property located outside South Lake Tahoe City limits is subject to 10% county tax on rent and cleaning. All properties rented require a mandatory departure cleaning fee ranging from $75-260, depending on size and occupancy of the property.

Cancellation Policy: Pre-paid deposit and/or rent are subject to forfeiture. An administrative fee of $125.00 will be applied against all canceled reservations after a deposit is received. Refund of the remainder will be made only if written notice, (by e-mail or mail) is received 30 days or more prior to arrival date, or if accommodations are re-rented. If you choose to cancel 30 days or less prior to your arrival date, you may be subject to paying the full rent amount if we are unable to re-rent the property. Holiday cancelations will be subject to more severe terms. Contact Tahoe Select Rentals for details.
