A Private Slice of Relaxing Heaven in Las Vegas
This vacation home far exceeded our expectations! The photos in the listing don't do it justice. The pool was wonderful–we swam every morning and enjoyed the privacy and warm water. (And used the poolside basketball hoop and nerf ball to shoot baskets!) The house itself was huge, beautifully decorated and comfy. We used the formal dining room to host a dinner for local family and used the patio gas grill to cook. We sat outside in the morning on the covered porch and used the hot tub in the evening.
Conveniently located in the Southeast Las Vegas area, we were only 17 minutes from the airport and about 20 minutes from "the Strip," as well as minutes from Whole Foods and local shopping. For outdoor adventurers like us, the drive to Red Rock (about 30-40 min), Lake Mead (about 25-30 min) and Mt Charleston (about 45 min) made the location a great luxury "base camp" for day hikes and excursions. If you want the noise, smoky rooms, and neon lights of Las Vegas Strip 24/7, don't stay here. But if you want peace, privacy, a full kitchen, private pool and air conditioned comfort with 3-4 sleeping rooms, this is a fantastic getaway. The owner and manager were super helpful, and easy to work with. The house was clean and well stocked with just about everything you need for cooking and entertaining (including a pool table, dvds, videos, books, board games and multiple tvs). The garage holds two cars and the fridge dispenses filtered water so no need to buy your own.
The ONLY downside was that Saturday the grounds keepers were blowing leaves for about an hour so there are periods when it's less quiet. But overall, most of the time, the high walls of the back yard and lovely manicured palm trees and flowering bushes made us feel like we were in our own oasis far from the noise and glitz of the city.
This home is ideal for couples wanting a romantic getaway, families with small children (multiple bedrooms, the pool and many rooms with televisions including a living room and family room) and family reunions. This would be a great place for a small family reunion or group of 3 couples or friends or even two families with children. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this home to family and friends!
