Everything was great and as good or better than as described. We had our own apartment, with private access to the hot tub, lovely outdoor garden area, grill, and outside seating. Air conditioner worked well, kitchen was well equipped, and a really nice book of attractions and personal recommendations for groceries, restaurants, and attractions awaited us. We will go back again when we are again in the Las Vegas area. Especially well suited for those who want to get as far away from the "strip" as possible. Here you are right up against the mountains on real acreage.

Hospitality is an art that Cathy and Ed has revived and modified for the 21st century travelers who appreciate the simple yet finer things in life. I very much enjoyed my stay. It's on my top 3 go to places in Vegas to get way from it all.

Cathy and Ed's place is neat little find in Vegas, easily accessible from the airport. It's reached on a short rocky gravel drive and abuts open land and the red sandstone hills. A nice retreat from the Strip. The casita is colorful, clean and nicely decorated. The bed was very comfortable. Our visit coincided with a heatwave, and the AC kept it cool throughout. It is quiet at night although you can hear an occasional airplane, not loud enough to bother us. Cathy is a wonderful hostess and will take good care of you from the first contact!

What a beautiful, peaceful and wonderful place. Cathy and Ed went above and beyond what the average host would do. The guest house was well put together and maintained. I really enjoyed the fact that this was away from the hustle and bustle of the strip but close enough to everything that we needed. The privacy that I was able to have is priceless. Their yard was green, serene and clean. Perfect for mediation if you're into that like I am. This was my first time ever on AirBnB and it was superb. I will definitely stay here again in the future. Seeing the natural wildlife was the cherry on top. I highly recommend staying here.

Kathy and Ed are so friendly and wonderful and think of the little things that will make you feel comfortable. They were flexible with our arrival and were very accomodating. The yard and putside area is even better than the photos and the hot tub was clean and so relaxing. Would highly recommend staying here if your looking to relax. Will definitely stay again if it's available
