The Space

**Car and Bicycle Rental is Now Available!**

Stretch your legs in this fully furnished, generously sized room with your very own 32" flat screen HDTV, Blue Ray DVD player with internet connection for Netflix, Youtube, Pandora, etc, huge walk in closet, queen size orthopedic bed (very comfy) with soft satin sheets, tempur-pedic pillows, dresser, mirror, nightstands, and even your own desk! High speed Wi-fi internet is available.

3 miles away from the Las Vegas Strip and within walking distance to Chinatown. Only 5-7 minutes by car to the Strip, or 15 minutes by bus. 3-4 minutes away to the Palms or Rio (perfect for poker players!). I can also help you get discounted show tickets for Cirque du Soleil or other shows, as well as car or camper van rentals for road trips.

Lots of reasonably priced restaurants nearby, mostly within walking distance with great food, such as Vietnamese pho, all-you-can-eat sushi, Chinese food from damn near every province in China, dim sum, all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ places, and they're all open late (4am). Few bars within walking distance that offer 24 hour steak and egg specials also (usually 16oz New York steak & eggs for $9.95). They will also give you free drinks if you play on their slot machines. Grocery stores and drugstores within walking distance.

If you don't feel like going out to eat, there's always instant noodles in the house, and occasional fresh fruits (bananas). I also have a good selection of high end Teavana and Chinese teas (not the crappy bagged stuff), as well as coffee (with a French style coffee maker) and Ovaltine. Even protein shakes! Lots of delivery options nearby, from pizza, Chinese, Italian, even a Southern style restaurant that has excellent breaded catfish fillets.

Kitchen is available for use, as long as you clean up after yourself. Microwave, blender, fridge, steam wrinkle remover (easier than ironing), and an electric massager is available for you to use. Filtered water is available, with a very good ionized filter machine that can also produce alkalized water (stuff they sell for $3 a liter at Whole Foods).

The shared living room has a 55" LED TV with surround sound, Blue Ray player, as well as a computer with high speed internet and printer/scanner/fax that's available for guests to use. Of course, Netflix comes standard, and the Sony sound system is good enough to piss off the neighbors if you decide to rock out the iPod/Pandora/Spotify.

For those who'd never miss gym time, there is also a professional grade Octane Elliptical trainer, small weight bench, inversion table, pilates ball, P90X DVDs, and Total Gym pull up bar with ab attachment you're welcome to use.

Always a fully stocked fridge (usually with alcohol ;) - guests are welcome to it, but please be considerate and replace what you finish.

The room is available for 4 travelers max. I have queen and full size airbeds available if needed. There is a friendly male Border Collie/Lab mix on premises on occasion. He won't ever bite (unless you're a burglar who weren't properly introduced). If you're allergic to or hate dogs, this is probably not for you. No cigarette or cigar smoking indoors. Washer and dryer is available on premises.

I'm always available if you need recommendations on dining or nightlife, and can possibly help arrange discounted bottle service or skipping the lines at a few venues. Can also help with discounted Cirque du Soleil tickets for prime seats. Bike and car rentals are also available starting at $10/day. Pets accepted and will be charged as an additional guest, one time $25 pet clean up fee will be charged. Please book accordingly.

PLEASE READ THE FULL DESCRIPTION BEFORE BOOKING.

Some people booked the room and then were surprised when they see a dog in the house, even though it's mentioned in the room description.

So if you're too lazy to read through the whole thing, here's a summary:

1. THERE IS A DOG IN THE HOUSE. He's a very sweet older border collie/lab mix. He doesn't bother anybody, and will play with you or do tricks for doggie treats.

2. What I DO (email hidden) to the hottest Las Vegas night clubs,
lounges, and bars. Afterparties and pool parties in the
spring/summer. Most venues I can walk you in past
the long lines without paying cover, or discounted
cover for guys.

B. Open bar with all kinds of alcohol, even frozen
margaritas/daiquiris. Saves you a lot of money if you
pregame before going out. Just don't go too crazy.

C. Freedom to come and go as you please. Want to party
all night and come home at 5 AM? I'm OK with that.
Want to stay in your room all day studying or working?
That's fine too.

D. A comfortable, safe and reasonably clean place to
sleep and shower. And yes I welcome pets with
advance notice.

3. What I DON'T offer:

A. Breakfast or any kind of meals. Pointless since in
Las Vegas you can have steak and eggs breakfasts
for under $10, and all day 24 hour buffets for $44.95. I
do have juice, tea, coffee, instant noodle, and bananas
on occasion. You're free to cook your own meals if you
wish.

B. Cleaning or turn down service. Since I don't charge a
cleaning fee, you're expected to clean up after
yourself.

C. A perfectly manicured front yard. My landlord decided
to rip out all the grass and put rocks instead. But he's
too cheap to do it right, so now there's wildflowers all
over the front yard. Hopefully he'll come to his senses
one day and put the grass back in. My dog loves it
though.

D. A hospital-clean environment. Tough when you have
an indoor dog. If my dog drops a piece of kibble on the
floor while I'm not home to pick it up and it freaks you
out, this is probably not for you.

  • Rama was a great host, he was very attentive and accessible answering my endless questions and doubts Room was clean and comfortable. It's not far from the Strip, and if you got a car it's less than 10 minutes. If I ever get back to Vegas, I may stay there again. You are free to come and go at all times and he respects your privacy. The location and neighborhood are fine, the neighborhood is very quiet and safe. I parked my car outside at night without any inconvenience. The place was perfect for this price.

  • Rama was a great host. The location was a short ride from the Strip, he was able to point me where to look for good information on the city, and the room and house itself was in good shape. Very clean. Hopefully I come through again so I can stay here once more. Thanks!

  • Enjoyed my stay, had to work quite a bit and it was pretty quiet and had plenty of privacy. Room was clean and comfortable.

  • Rama and his girlfriend were very hospitable, even though we didn't have much contact because I just stayed for 2 days and most of the time I was out enjoying the city. I felt very comfortable, the bed is big and the pictures really shows the house.

    It's not far from the Strip, and if you got a car it's less than 8 minutes.

    If I ever get back to Vegas, I may stay there again.

    Oh I almost forgot, they have a really cute and quiet old dog, it doesn't bother at all, for those who are afraid of dogs, I couldn't even see it's teeth because he never opens his mouth close to you, and I even tried to call him inside the room, but he doesn't even entered there

  • Rama was a great host. You are free to come and go at all times and he respects your privacy. The home gym is ideal. The location and neighborhood are fine, Best if you have a car. The 203 bus to the strip takes about 40mins, but it is only $2.

    Overall, a great stay!

    Thanks for the great review :) The bus ride only takes 15-20 minutes, the problem is when it gets late the bus only shows up every 30 minutes or so.

  • Everything went fine and was exactly as described in the ad. Rama is a very good host. We had a little chat and he told my wife and I to Go to a very nice mexican restaurant, wich turned out to be awesome. We would definetaly stay there again and spread the word that this is a great place to stay in Vegas.

    January 2014

About
I've been living in Las Vegas for a long time, and can show you the side of LV that only locals know. I'm into nightlife (and daylife in the summer - lots of pool parties at the hotels), and can possibly hang out with you and get you into a venue without waiting in line if my schedule allows (I party responsibly ;)). Maybe even get you hooked up if you have a big group and need a table/bottle service. I also have hookups with show tickets and can get you 30% discount on most Cirque du Soleil shows such as O, KA, Zumanity, Love, Criss Angel, and Zarkana. Also shows such as Jabbawockeez and David Copperfield. I'm into travelling, and I love to meet people from all over. It's always good to know someone when you're in a foreign country. 2 things I live by: I would try anything at least once - and live life with no regrets.
