About this listing
Experience what's like to live with a family in a quite / safe neighborhood in Las Vegas.
The smell of our home cooked breakfast, fresh coffee brewing first thing in the morning might get you out of bed earlier that you planned. You'll feel at home.
We live in a very safe and quiet neighborhood in Las Vegas. At night you don't even imagine that you are staying only 10 minutes away from the craziest strips in the world.
He have two rooms listed in this house.
This room that I am listing is quite cozy decorated in black and white. It is a real bed,has a HD Smart TV and if you need we can also provide you a dvd player and a laptop to go online. We provide clean sheets and towels. You can use part of the closet too.
A good variety of breakfast can be provided. You can prepare yourself in the kitchen if you prefer, or we can do it for you.
We have a very cute back garden with a zen area where you can relax and enjoy the water feature.
We have cats and dogs but they won't bother you,
The bathroom will be shared if someone else is renting the other room, otherwise it's just for you. In case needed, there is an extra bathroom that the guests can use in my suite.
Feel free to use the kitchen and laundry area.
We are very easy going friendly hosts and there aren't many demanding rules except that this is a smoke free home and child friendly.
We are flexible with check in and check out. We just need to have an idea on what time you are coming in or leaving because of other reservations we might have. As a guide line mid day works for us.
The location is quite central between Las Vegas Strip and the west side of town, Red Rock, or Mount Charleston. with a few local casinos near by. It's about 10 minutes drive from the strip, and there are buses less than 5 minutes walk from the house. It is also about 20 minutes away from Wet N'Wild.
There are several different restaurants and shops around the area and the Medows Mall is about 5 minutes away, The Premium Outlet Mall, is about 10 minutes from our house and the UMC hospital is just down the road, 10 minutes away.
Our home is decorated in a vintage style, giving that welcoming cozy feel. No carpets, very clean and welcoming.
In the summer you can use the above ground 18" pool or lie in the hammocks either in the shade or in the sun.
You might catch a cropping season and take advantage of the vegetables or fruits we planted in our garden.
Children are welcome and they can hang out with my 11 years old, play XBOX or just chill in the pool.
If you are a couple traveling with children, we can accommodate your kids too for a extra small fee. Just send me a message before booking and we will arrange a price and discuss the accommodation.
I am sure you will enjoy the piece and quiet of our home.

The guests have access to the whole house, except my bedroom and my art studio unless invited.
We offer a complementary load of laundry per booking.
Interaction with Guests
I usually am at home during my guests stay, and at the check in I love greeting them with a friendly welcoming hug.
Even though I like to get to know them a bit better, I am very respectful of their space and privacy. I like leave them alone but I am very prompt helping them with their needs. it can be from recommendations for restaurants, transportation, attractions, local stores, shopping etc.
Breakfast is always a good time for a quick chat and introduce other guests. It has happened guests from both rooms, becoming friends after a wonderful meal shared at dinning table. This is what I love the most on hosting. Create links and relationships between people who come to my home, either personal friends or guests.
Even though breakfast is included, sometimes my guests are invited to sit at the table to share other meals with us, and they always leave our home with a warm feeling.
This is a very quiet and safe neighborhood. It's tucked away from main streets so it gives us the feeling of being away from all that crazy madness from the strip. Yet, it's only about 10 minutes drive from it. Haha
It's not a wealthy neighborhood so it doesn't attract burglars. It's not ghetto either so there is no drama or crime around. Just normal middle class working people who are friendly and respectful. I am friends with some neighbors, and our kids play safely with each other outside, we visit each other and sometimes they are invited over to meals or watch movies. It's like a big family and we look after each other.
If you arrive at the airport and are not renting a car, you can get a cab and it will be around 20 minutes ride.
The main buses near by are the Charleston, running east-west, or Decatur running north-south. Both stops are about 5 minutes walking distance from my home, and around half hour ride to the transit station where you can get the Duce that runs on the strip. With $5 you can get a 24 hours bus pass that allows you to go anywhere in Las Vegas and the main buses run 24 hours a day.
We also have bikes if you feel like riding around the area, that you can borrow.
Other Things to Note
I try to keep my house clean and quiet, but please be aware that will be children coming in and out during the day. Sometimes we watch TV and during summer there will be kids having fun in the pool. I have pets so even though my dogs are quiet, they will bark if someone knocks at the door. This is not a very noisy house but you will be sharing the home with a family who has a social life, pets and kids during the day. At night, usually after 9 the house gets really quiet and you can have a good night sleep.
Smoke, drugs and alcohol free house inside or outside.
There is a seat at the front garden that is far enough to not disturb and you can use that are if you really need to smoke.
Child friendly, so no mad parties. This is a family home.
Pet friendly but doesn't smell "like dog" when you get in.
Please clean after yourself if you use the kitchen.
Please eat your meals in the dining room instead of the bedrooms.
If something gets broken it's expected to be fixed or replaced by the guest.
From Dec 29, 2015 - Jan 02, 2016 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
I had a very unforgettable stay at Zen's place. She is very approachable and sincere. Her house is nice and warm. Overall, it's a very welcoming place.
In addition to the perfect room, she prepares breakfast for her guest in the morning. The food is absolutely delicious. Also, she asked my preference for beverage in the morning and she prepared it just for me. If you are in Las Vegas, it's definitely a great place to stay!
Zen was very welcoming and made my friend and I feel very at home. She prepared us breakfast to make sure we were ready for our 9 hour drive. Would definitely stay with her again!
My stay at Zen's place was as awesome as it could be. When I arrived, I was welcomed into her place as if we already knew each other! It wasn't long before I was in their pool out back, and she brought me a fresh towel, a Lilo to lie on, and put some music on for me.
The room is exactly as advertised. It was perfectly clean, and the fan had been going so the room was a very comfortable temperature. The bed is comfortable too!
I also had breakfast cooked for me, which was unexpected but incredibly nice.
I would definitely stay here again without thinking twice about it!
Zen was an awesome host! She is very sweet and genuinely cares about her guests. She made breakfast every day and the adjusts it according to people's meal preferences. The breakfast was delicious and a great way to start each day. Her house is just a few minutes drive from the strip so it is an excellent alternative in my opinion to the madness that is the strip and the associated costs.
The room and house was very nice. Zen is very nice and easy going. The outdoor space was very relaxing and was exactly what I needed. The house was quiet and I rested well! The outdoor lights at night give a nice ambiance. The whole place is very artsy and crafty... looks great!
Zen went beyond expectation. Home was exactly as shown in the picture and well reachable by public transportation.
I would definetely stay here again.
Zen's place is an island of tranquility that will allow you to enjoy Vegas but at the same time be sure to have great host and place to recharge your batteries, Amazingly!

About the Host, Zen
I am an artist, dog groomer, mum, born in Portugal, lived in UK for a few years and moved to Las Vegas in 2010.
I do all sorts of creative stuff and my house has a crafts studio that is just my paradise.
I am very easy going, open minded person who enjoys hosting.
I am looking forward to open the doors of my home to friendly people from around the world. I can guarantee you that you will have interesting conversations, nice food if you decide to join us for a meal, and some fun if you like board games or watch a movie with us.
I am someone who always followed my dreams and even when I crash landed after a great flight, I will have a smile on my bruised face and will shout: -What a ride!
I recently beat breast cancer with a very positive attitude and I guess I can be very inspiring here in my community.
I am a very spiritual person so my environment is drama free.
