Come stay with us at our Mini Ranch/Hobby Farm just 5 minutes from Centennial Hills Hospital. Our large, private master suite is yours to enjoy and that includes a distant view of The Strip, Downtown, and two mountain ranges. You access the room from the outside only, not through the home. Outside your door is a small patio with BBQ and table where you can enjoy your morning coffee, watch the sunrise and visit some of our animals. Behind the low fence there are chickens, geese, ducks, horses, and a peahen, plus assorted wildlife that appear sometimes. We've seen roadrunners, hawks, coyotes, lizards, squirrels, quail, cottontails, and vultures, to name just a few. You are welcome to bring your pets, even horses. Our almost-rural neighborhood is a great place to walk and ride. Our dogs and cats may be on the people side of the fence, but are content to stay out of your way most of the time. They do not have access to your room.
Our spacious offering features a bay window with seating and table, a Queen Temper-Pedic bed (firm), a walk in closet, and a generous 4 piece full bathroom. There is a limited 'efficiency kitchen' with microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and 3 cu ft refrigerator. Best suited for snacks, drinks, and breakfast, there are dozens of restaurants within 5 minutes. You'll find a vaguely modern western decor with brown, blue, and rose colors.
You have your own thermostat controls and ceiling fan for your comfort. Two windows open for fresh air if you prefer. The closet is roomy enough for a long stay. The dresser is casual and makes use of the bookcase and canvas drawers; also contains books and games as well. There's room for a roll away bed if you have a third person with you. Otherwise, the room is equipped for two.
We are about 20 minutes from The Strip and Convention Center, 25 minutes to McCarren, and 5 minutes to Centennial Hills Hospital and the Northwest Transportation Hub which takes riders all over via express buses, including UNLV and the airport, although this is not a particularly convenient travel option except on New Year's Eve.
We provide all linens, have laundry facilities available, even vintage games and puzzles if you need some down time after a hard day (or night). Flat screen TV has remote and basic cable, plus a Chrome Cast dongle you can use with our free Wi-Fi (but your device: phone, pad, laptop).
There is a $5 additional cleaning fee per booking if you bring any animals. We live on-site and are available to help you with questions or travel information.
NO firearms allowed. NO smoking indoors. Rx drugs OK.
We moved to Las Vegas in 2003 and found a great property with a bigger-than-we-needed house on it. Our extra room has allowed us to host students from Netherlands, Denmark, and Germany, save a friend from homelessness after foreclosure, and keep costs down for travelling friends and relatives. We've enjoyed meeting people and sharing our little secret of Las Vegas - that 2,000,000 people live here, we're not all on The Strip, and that there's a rural community on the edge of town.
Mike is the head of the household and is a software engineer. He works at home, but also travels a lot all over the world, having been to Europe, Africa, The Middle East, and The Himalayas.
Holly, your hostess, is a licensed veterinary technician, and works as a relief surgical and dental technician at a spay and neuter clinic and as a professional pet sitter, but is more often home than not. A former career as a resort manager assures you of a quality stay.
Mitchell is our son; he is 14. He is the first chair bassoonist at his school, an advancing orange belt in martial arts, and a computer whiz as well. He is planning to go into aeronautical or astronautical engineering after high school. He helps with preparing your accommodations here to earn money for that college education.
We were all born in California, and still have extended family there spread out between Los Angeles and San Diego. Being in Las Vegas we enjoy more sunny days and sometimes snow in the winter, right in our yard. For 2015 we are investing in a solar array that will power our entire home with renewable energy, and we're pretty happy about that from an ecological standpoint as well as a financial one.
Holly Rivney purchased this studio in 2003
Did you know that most hotels on The Strip charge a 'resort fee'? Their prices can be deceptive. You might want to stay with us if you are on a budget and need some quiet time for your stay, or would like to visit friends or family. Are you a travel nurse or intern at Centennial Hills Hospital? We are a bike ride or 5 minute car trip away. Las Vegas is a huge city on 600 square miles with over 2,000,000 residents, and The Strip is simply the focus. From our place you get the safety of the community, a new perspective on the city, and local taverns for a little night life without the overwhelming 'everythingness' of the city. We love our ability to have farm animals but also live close to shopping and can access the action easily.
Visiting someone at Centennial Hills Hospital? We're 5 minutes away. Military send off or welcome? Indian Springs and Nellis are less than an hour away. Want to spend the holidays in the snow? We're 30 minutes from darn good skiing and snowboarding. Like a little wilderness? Just 15 minutes to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Park. And if you really want a taste of The Strip, it's a quick 25 minute drive to Mandalay Bay, or a 20 minute drive to the Old Town and Fremont Street.
You can bring your pets here - even your horses! We have room for them too. At night watch the lights come up. See the Luxor beam, the High Roller Linq, Wynn and Encore; look up and watch satellites if the moon is new. We are not 'Vegas' - we are home near schools, churches, and regular people. Come stay with us and earn your 'LOCAL' wings!
So happy we booked this place to stop by for a couple of nights on our way south to SoCal for Xmas. Exactly as advertised, prompt & easy communication with Holly prior to arrival & easy to find. Quiet neighborhood but close to
Freeway, private room with separate entry, good wifi, basic cable tv,, clean & very comfortable bed. Loved that it was pet friendly. Value (especially traveling with dogs) couldn't be beat. Sorry we brought the bad weather with us & couldn't take advantage of the local trails nearby but the Xmas gift of fresh eggs from our hosts more than made up for it, they were delicious! Will put this on our must stay list.
Very happy to have found this. This rental was perfect for our needs, very easy to locate, very private, great for our pet and Holly was very helpful.
If we need to spend a few days in Las Vegas again I will look for this location.
I enjoyed my home away from home experience with the Rivneys. The accomodations were very comfortable. since i am from a rural area, i greatly enjoyed the animals and helped Holly round up her ducks the night before I left. I had an easy drive to and from the AF base. A church was nearby for Sunday mass. I have already recommended this accomodation to other AF families. If I ever return to Las Vegas and cannot get an accomodation directly on the base, my choice would be this place. Thank you Holly for an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
My husband and I went to Las Vegas for the SEMA car show and stayed @ Holly's studio suite. It was nice to get away from the hustle and bustle of the strip. Holly was very accomodating and even give us tips of other car events related to the SEMA show. The studio is connected to the main house, but you would never know because it is sooo quiet. Its a beautiful place, you can see the vegas strip from the backyard. If in Vegas again, we would defineately stay here again. LOVED IT!
A perfect large room with a nice bed , a sitting area with a tv, small refrigerator with dishes, silverware and coffeemaker, and a very large bathroom. This is an easy 25 minutes from the strip and airport, away from all the downtown glitz. The location is perfect for us, very close to family. We will be staying here again in Februaury. Plenty of local parks nearby. Lone mountain is 8 minutes away with nice outdoor activities and it is about a 50 minute hike to the top. RedRock canyon is not to be missed if you are a hiker.
We are a great place to stay if you are visiting someone at Centennial Hills Hospital, want to be closer to the Ski and Snowboard resort, or need an affordable place because your friend is getting married and don't mind a little extra driving.
All within an hour's drive you can visit State Parks, National Parks, Recreation Areas, Hoover Dam, see the Atomic History Museum, Natural History Museum, the Springs Preserve, and Floyd Lamb State park where people would spend 6 weeks to establish residency to get a divorce in the early 20th century.
Shooting - one of the best shooting ranges in the west can be found about 10 miles east of us. Programs and lessons available (even a snack bar).
We are always about 5% cooler than The Strip because we are 40% higher elevation. Give us better views and weather.
Riding your horse locally or passing through? We accommodate 2 horses for you; bring your own hay. You can ride out from our property to MILES of mountain trails, or trailer a short distance to MORE trails in the foothills. Ride at Red Rock, Valley of Fire, Mount Charleston. Just one of you and a horse? I'd love to ride with you!
