frequently asked questions
What to expect at an Elite Teepees® sleepover.
We aim to provide a hassle free experience and delight our clients. In preparation for our arrival, on the day of your sleepover, you will need to clear the party room. Then simply leave the rest to us.
Which areas does Elite Teepees® deliver to?
Rancho Santa Fe
How much space do I need?
Elite Teepees: The overall width of the teepee and mattress is 36 inches wide by 6ft 2 inches long. The best configuration for small spaces is to have 2 rows of teepees facing each other e.g. a space of 12ft x 14ft works well for 6 - 8 teepees.
Please remember to allow space in front of the teepees for guests to access their teepees. Each teepee set up requires a minimum of 3ft x 7ft. Below are some examples of typical Elite Teepees layouts and minimum space requirements.
Slumber Den: The Slumber Den with 4 mattresses, which comfortably sleeps 4 adults, (or more snuggling kiddos) requires 11 ½ ft x 8 ½ ft of floor space.
May I hold an Elite Teepees® party in a hotel or a club house?
Absolutely. You will need to check that the party room is cleared in preparation for our arrival and you will also need to ensure that the venue is aware of our arrival and provides adequate loading/unloading facilities and access to the party room.
How far in advance of the event should I book?
You’re best to book in as soon as you have settled on a date. Due to the high demand for parties on Friday and Saturday nights we recommend booking at least 2 months in advance to avoid disappointment. Payment of your $200 deposit secures your preferred party date and Elite Collection.
Once my party is booked, what do you require from me?
We are a full service provider, which means that everything for your sleepover is included... all the teepees, bedlinen, lighting and decorative accessories. So once your booking is confirmed, all we need from you is to clear the party room ready for our arrival on the day of your party. We create personalized name plaques for each Elite Teepee, so if you would kindly provide guest names before the event that would be great. Other than that, all we ask is for you to bring a sense of fun and adventure. We aim to make it easy for you to focus on making the party a dream come true.
What age do you recommend for kids sleepovers? Are Elite Teepees® suitable for adults too?
We embrace any age and cater to all life's celebrations. From experience, typically kids are ready for a sleepover from about 6 or 7 years old.
How is the bedding cleaned?
All bedding is laundered after each use. We use the #1 recommended detergent brand by dermatologists, allergists, and pediatricians.
