Looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable stay with full house privileges? Welcome to my Las Vegas home!
I'm welcoming you to stay with me in my cozy townhouse in Sin City :)
Who lives in the house?
Hi! I'm the homeowner, Antoinette. I am a 32 year old PhD student (this is my second one, hence all the books on the bookshelves) at UNLV. I live with my roommate, William. Oh yes, and don't forget Lando Cat, a 6 year old indoor cat who pretty much owns the place!
What's the room like?
The room is the guest bedroom in my 3 bedroom townhouse. It is furnished with a queen bed, clean sheets/blankets/pillows, and small night stand.
You are welcome to read any of the books on the book shelves, but please don't take them with you! Unfortunately, I've had to start keeping count before and after having new guests because of a couple of important ones that have gone missing :( Important note: My first doctoral degree was in Human Sexuality, and my current one is in Cultural Anthropology...this is advanced notice so you're not surprised by the interestingly "eclectic" books on the shelves!)
For your peace of mind, each bedroom in the home is individually keyed, so you can lock the bedroom door on your way out, take the key, and feel safe and secure leaving your things behind while you're out and about.
What about the bathroom?
The bathroom is accessed from the hallway and is shared with William. It has a normal size shower/tub and plenty of counter space. Clean towels are available for you to use, and I have travel sized toiletries if you forget (or don't want to pack) yours. A hair dryer is included, under the sink. There's also an additional 1/2 bathroom downstairs.
**What about the rest of the house?**
- KITCHEN: I have a large kitchen table currently with seating for 6, but I have extra chairs and can easily seat 10. You are free to use any of the pots, pans, dishes, silverware, and appliances in the kitchen. I have a spectacular juicer that I'd be happy to show you how to use, if you're into that kind of thing. I am less than a mile to Sprouts (a grocery store), if you want to buy stuff to cook instead of dining out. Eggs, fruit (usually apples, oranges, and bananas), and coffee/tea are available for breakfast for free.
- LIVING ROOM: Living room is furnished with 2 couches, some armchairs, a 40" TV with cable, Amazon Prime, and Netfix (and a small selection of DVDs, but probably nothing to get too excited about), and a large coffee table. I have a few board games (Yahtzee, Balderdash, Scrabble, Monopoly, poker chips, and Taboo) that you're welcome to play, should you desire to have some time in instead of out.
Free parking is available in our guest lot (I'll give you a parking pass to hang in your car when you arrive).
I have a back patio/porch with a gas grill, if you feel like BBQing.
Washer and dryer are available for your use.
Wifi internet is available throughout the house.
I pride myself on maintaining a healthy, clean home. I'm not OCD, but this certainly isn't a bachelor pad or party house.
It's usually pretty quiet around here, although I sometimes have friends over for board game night on Saturdays, from time to time.
Minimum 2 night stay.
There are 2 pools and a hottub in our townhouse complex (closed during the winter), though the community rules require that I accompany you.
There is also a tennis court available, although I've never used it myself.
I may or may not be home when you are home, but I will always be available via text or phone. You can come and go as you please. Let me know your arrival time ahead of time, and if I will not be home when you check in, I will leave your keys in the lockbox on the front door and provide you a code. Please let me know at any time if there's anything I can do to make your stay more enjoyable!
Interaction with Guests
Airbnb is not a “big business” for me; if you stay with me, I am simply opening the doors of my home to you. This is where I live, eat, sleep, and go about my daily life, too! Please be mindful of this :)
What I love about about this location and neighborhood is that it is a safe community just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the strip, yet close enough to access it easily when desired.
How far to the strip (Las Vegas Blvd)?
To be honest, I've only been to the strip five times! It is about 4.5 miles directly west of us, and generally takes about 15 minutes by car.
There are 2 city bus routes that go to/from the strip with bus stops within 1/2 mile from our doorstep. Bus route #202 has a stop on Flamingo & Pecos (.5 mile north of us) and route #201 has a stop on Tropicana & Pecos (.5 mile south of us), each which takes about 25-30 minutes. #201 drops off at the corner of the New York New York, MGM Grand, the Tropicana, and the Excalibur. #202 drops off at the corner of Caesar's Palace and the Bellagio fountains. Single ride tickets are $2, and a 24-hour ticket is $5. They run 24 hours a day, at intervals of no more than 30 minutes.
* If you need a ride somewhere (including the airport), I MIGHT be able to help you out, but that generally depends on my school schedule. Please ask, and I'll see what I can do :)
Other Things to Note
What did I forget? If I haven't answered something, shoot me a message and I'll do so :)
- Don't let Lando Cat outside (he will try to be tricky and sneak by you if you're not careful).
- No smoking inside.
- You are welcome to use any towels, sheets, dishes, etc. that you need, but please be respectful of our things and treat them as you would your own (or better!). Help yourself, just please clean up after yourself :)
- Respect others’ space and privacy; enter common areas/spaces and your designated room only
– Do NOT enter other private bedrooms.
- Please be considerate of other guests, if there are any.
Antoinette was a wonderful hostess. The room was very nice, she had plenty of everything (blankets, towels, soap, etc) and was helpful with any questions I had. She even loaned us $10 so we wouldn't have to make a round about trip to the ATM. I've never used Airbnb before, but Antoinette has made me a convert. Above and beyond!
Antoinette was a wonderful host - she was kind, helpful, flexible, had great knowledge of the area and went out of her way to make our holiday awesome. The listing was accurate as the house was clean, tidy, spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. The neighbourhood felt very safe and the public transport was close, reliable, regular and convenient - each bus took us to a different side of the strip. There were shops close by that also made our stay easier. The cherry on top was when Antoinette offered to take us to the airport when she was available.
I would highly recommend staying with Antoinette!!
Toni was a very gracious hostess and all was as advertised. NOTE: rooms are upstairs and stairs fairly steep, not for disabled types. BONUS: Rooms face west so as not have morning sun in your face.
The house is around 10 minutes from the strip. When we arrived Antoinette was there to welcome us. She was very nice and attentive to all our needs as was her sister who was visiting at the moment. When we went up to our bedroom there was a small whiteboard on the door with some useful information on it, which I think it was a nice touch. The room and complex were very quiet except for the times when the neighbor's dog would express himself, loved the birds singing in the mornings though. We also liked her really cute backyard perfect to have breakfast on a nice morning or tea in the afternoon. The kitchen is roomy and had everything we needed to cook our meals. The room looks like shown in the picture even though it could have been better cleaned before we arrived as well as the bathrooms. The room next to us was also rented to a couple of girls we never saw but it was obvious we shared the same bathroom. Lando cat was also really sweet and he does talk a lot. Thank you Antoinette for letting us stay with you and your family, we enjoyed it.
I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm feel bad that I didn't know your allergies required deep cleaning before your stay, because I certainly would have gone above and beyond our normal cleaning (which has always exceeded guests' expectations) to make sure the room and bathroom met your specific needs. Thank you for the feedback!
Antoinette was a very friendly and accommodating host. There were plenty of fresh towels and toiletries. The room was clean and comfortable; just as pictured. I enjoyed my stay here and I would definitely recommend her place to anyone else.
Antoinette was a very kind host and the room was exactly as pictured. Everything was clean and even Lando cat was very accommodating. As far the location- it really couldn't get any better if you're wanting to tour Las Vegas. I was less than 10 min from the strip, airport, and university. Note to potential first time visitors of Las Vegas- bring your Starbucks card as there are about 499 Starbucks on the strip...
I didn't meet Antoinette in person, but she was always quick to respond via text, and seemed friendly. The room was clean, comfortable, and included an interesting library. Much preferred to the smoke-filled hotels on the strip.
