I recently did my 2013 taxes and I made no money sharing out the bedroom and the apartment; you should know that the cost of the room offsets 50% of my daily apartment housing expenses, toilet paper and additional laundry and cleaning supplies plus Airbnb's commission. In no way is this a for profit enterprise.
There is "off street parking". in the apartment parking lot.
I am a rock climber who seldom parties or has overnight guests and I work from the apartment. That means I get up at 5:05 AM during the week; sometimes nap mid mornings unless I am going climbing. I would prefer someone quiet and somewhat neat. I do have a long haired cat.
Summer 2014, I am planning for several shorter road trips. If you have plans to spend extended time (more than 21 days) in Las Vegas.... May 2014 through end of September 2014 inquire and maybe we can work out a special offer in return for cat sitting.
Food shopping within walking distance or a short drive to shopping centers. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are about 1 or 2 miles distant.There are a couple "local" bar & grill establishments close by and near Lake Mead and the US 95 is a selection restaurants and the usual fast food, but I don't frequent them ( Pin Kaow is decent Thai food) so know little about the food or service..
You really need your own transport to use this location. This location has good freeway access, is close to Red Rocks (30 minutes or less) and Mt.Charleston.
Going downtown is more problematical, especially during holidays when traffic is heavy. There is bus transport very close, but the public transport system in Las Vegas leaves a lot to be desired. You can find information about public transport at the Las Vegas Regional Transportation Commission site online..
Guests have full use of the kitchen, laundry room and common space which has a work out area (pull up bars, a few free weights and hang-board; ask to use the inversion machine)
Staying here should feel very relaxed and comfortable - like staying at a friend's house. I have lived in Las Vegas about 15 years....Feel free to ask about the local attractions or destinations.
Recently, several guests have asked about me picking them up or driving me around (for instance a ride to the airport).
While I might be able to make some arrangements for transport you would be responsible for any charges.
I am sorry but I do not do pick up guests or drive then around.. Please do not ask.
This is a working class neighborhood mostly Black and Latino) which is run down, but safe and friendly; It used to be drug and prostitute ridden but frequent Las Vegas Metro patrols have run out the drug dealers. Children and animals play in the street, I don't leave my Toyota unlocked at night or anything valuable in view in the front seats, but I sometimes have a $55,000 bass boat parked out side and it hasn't been bothered in the two years have been here. It is an ideal location for climbing at either Red Rock Canyon or Mt. Charleston in the summer.
Right now the Skeeter is parked at my fishing partners house so you could keep and conveniently charge a bass boat here if you came to Lake Mead for the bass fishing.
This apartment is best used with a car or truck. you can get around via public transportation but the transit system in Las Vegas is poor in my opinion. Look up fares and bus schedules information by accessing the regional transportation commission
Please bring your own towel and toiletries. None are provided.
Purified water is provided. I get this personally from a store which reverse osmosis filters onsite, not from a kiosk.
Staying at Thomas place has been an excellent and enjoyable experience. I have discovered any other attractions in Las Vegas, thanks to Thomas knowledge of the red rock canyon and any other outdoor places in Nevada. I definitely will come to visit you, Thomas. Thanks for your hospitality.
Thomas was a pleasant host that I barely saw for my four day stay after the first 24 hours of my being there. He left for 3 days and left his 2 bedroom apartment for me stay in, while I worked at a convention on the strip in Las Vegas. The drive to the strip from Thomas' was about 5-10 min. depending on traffic-- and I was quite pleased with my decision to stay with him. Thomas had a cat which pleasant (I like cats). His spare bedroom was clean with clean sheets. Thomas provided my own bathroom which was sparkling clean. I'd recommend Thomas as a host to anyone who wants to stay with him.
Thomas was a great host. He was very friendly and very quite. His cat was super loving and extremely nice. The bed was unbelievably comfortable, I was pulling 12 hour days for work followed by climbing each evening, and I felt wide awake every morning. That bed was great.
Unfortunately we had no time to meet us, but we are very grateful for the confidence that Tom gave us. Amy (your pet) is lovely. The room is perfect and there is a big size bed(plenty of space)
We spent 3 nights at Tom and come back soon because our stay was very good.
We recommend =D
Unfortunately, my mother had a heart attack right before I left and I was unable to stay with Thomas but he was very understanding and kind about my situation. When I actually get to Vegas I would feel very comfortable staying with him.
Tom is a gracious and considerate host. The place is just as advertised and is ideally suited for rock-climbers and/or outdoor types. You will need a car, as public transport is very slow.
Stayed with Thomas while climbing in Red Rocks for 4 days. Saweet deal indeed! Super nice, great shower, awesome kitty, good stories... as some have said the neighborhood ain't great - well , it's not , but we didn't feel it to be any issue at all. I'd stay with Thomas again in a heartbeat!
We went to Vegas on a rock climbing trip and stayed with Tom. He was very generous, welcoming, and accommodating. We felt at home and he had lots of great advice both before our arrival and while we were there about climbing in the area. Would go back and stay with Tom again!
Thomas is a magnificent host and person. The flat fulfils to the description and is clean. Las Vegas strip is easy to reach by car. Restaurants and stores are in the nearer area. If you make excursions you should hear on his advices. They are great. And not to forget, Amy the cat. A great and affectionable flatmate. We enjoyed our stay with Thomas and Amy and would come again any time with pleasure.
Thomas is the greatest host I ever meet. His cat is also the cutest in the world!!!
He's kind and really friendly. Even though the people living around looks little but rough but I can say here still is a safe place to stay. i didn't get a car by the time I stayed in Thomas place but I could still visited all the place visitors should be visited in LV just by bus.
KFC , burger king, 7-11 and wall-mart just 5 mins walk away!!
If I visit LV in my life time again... THOMAS PLACE IS MY FIRST AND THE ONLY CHOICE
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
