I live down the street from this beautiful 5 bedroom 3 bath Las Vegas house. Each room is named for an area of the country: Southwest, Northwest, Midwest, and East...plus a very large Master Suite with attached walk-in closet the size of another bedroom!
If you have questions about the house features, the location of the house, or transportation in the city, please be sure to read the entire description - almost every question you have is answered there! Especially important is the section titled "Getting Around" which explains the very limited public transportation in Las Vegas and offers suggestions for getting around the city. More information is also provided in the detailed Guest Books located in each bedroom and the kitchen!

I live down the street and I will likely be in town during your stay, but I don't expect to enter the house during your stay unless you require assistance from me.The Neighborhood
My house is in a quiet neighborhood where you can feel relaxed and at home, while still being close enough to The Strip to enjoy the fantastic Las Vegas experience. From my house it is very easy to access everything by car: I-15 (2 minutes), the airport (10 minutes), The Strip (10 minutes but varies with traffic), the Convention Center (15 minutes but varies with traffic), Downtown/Old Vegas (25 minutes), Red Rock Canyon (30 minutes), and Hoover Dam / Lake Mead (40 minutes).
There is plenty of free street parking in my neighborhood, and you'll find all the conveniences you can imagine within a mile or two - a casino, restaurants, a movie theater, a bowling alley, a library, a park, outlet shopping, specialty shops, grocery stores, pubs, liquor and wine stores, sushi bars, ice cream parlors, fast food, and more!Getting Around
PLEASE be aware that Las Vegas (like the majority of the US) has very limited public transportation. If you want to stay off-Strip ANYWHERE in this city (not just my house) be aware that a round trip cab or car ride to The Strip will cost more than the daily rental rate of a small car.
My house, 5 miles from The Strip, is about a $20-$30 cab or car ride to The Strip, but if you are over 25 years old you can rent a small car for $25/day including taxes and fees and park it for FREE at most hotels/casinos on The Strip - that's basically equal to one average cab/car ride in this town!
Besides the obvious cost savings of renting a car vs. taking cabs/cars, there are so many other things to see and do in Vegas besides The Strip (like Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam, or Fremont Street Experience), and having a car gives you the ability to access these things which a cab and public transportation cannot do.
However, if you don't bring a car or rent a car, there are several other options which many of my guests have used to get to and from The Strip and the airport.
1) Your most reliable and easiest option without your own car is to use Uber or Lyft. Rates will vary greatly based on time of day, day of week, and time of year. There are often special events in Las Vegas so prices will fluctuate greatly with these as well.
2) You can call a cab to my house, but cabs are notoriously slow to arrive at residential homes unless you call them the day before to schedule a ride to the airport. For a regular cab pickup, be prepared to wait 15-60 minutes depending on how busy the cabs are at the time you call...this is true for ANY residential home off-Strip ANYWHERE in the city. This is why I suggest Uber or Lyft rather than cabs.
3) You can walk about 15 minutes (1 mile) to South Point Casino and catch a cab at their taxi stand.
4) You can walk about 15 minutes (1 mile) to South Point Casino and take their $8 per day South Point Shuttle to and from The Strip (see the picture of the shuttle schedule for more details or visit the South Point website).
5) You can walk about 15 minutes (1 mile) to the nearest bus stop on Las Vegas Blvd and take the city bus (see the picture of the sample bus route for more details). Be aware that the roughly 5 mile (10 minute) drive to The Strip will take more than 1 hour by bus!Other Things to Note
The garages will not be accessible during your stay.
There is a very detailed Guest Book located in each room - it provides information about WiFi, laundry, house cleaning, parking, the kitchen, TV channels, local restaurants, grocery stores, getting around the town, and much more. If my online listing doesn't answer your questions, I bet my Guest Books will!
Although the neighborhood is very safe, I have security cameras installed to monitor the exterior perimeter of my house for your safety and for the security of my property.
