Finding the right place to stay in Las Vegas is one of the most important things when planning your Sin City adventure. For those not looking to stay at grand hotels, Airbnb offers unique accommodations that blend the convenience of a large resort with the comforts and privacy of home.
Las Vegas might be famous for its sprawling resorts, but the bustling city is also home to some of the most unique Airbnbs in the United States. From affordable bungalows on the edge of the Mojave Desert to luxurious penthouses with a view of the Strip, find your next stay with Culture Trip’s guide of the best Airbnbs in Las Vegas.
Palms Place Penthouses is a high-rise with condominiums adjacent to the recently renovated Palms Hotel and Casino just off the Strip. Situated on the 57th floor with an infinity hot tub overlooking the entirety of the buzzy Las Vegas Strip, the upscale apartment has a luxury feel and sleeps up to 12 people. This sleek penthouse comes fully equipped with a spacious upscale kitchen, a fireplace and master baths with televisions. Guests are welcome to use the gym facility in the building.
This little villa is glowing with old-school charm. The arched colonnade resembles a set out of Scorcese’s Casino. However, the house’s many amenities – which include a pool, a billiards table and an authentic blackjack table – make it seem like a perfect place to stage an unforgettable family vacay. Situated minutes from the Las Vegas Strip, this vintage Vegas estate is a five-bedroom house. Four of the bedrooms come with en-suite bathrooms. With affordable rates, the kid-friendly place is less than 15 minutes away from Downtown, the outlets and many restaurants.
This Spanish-style retreat located just outside the Arts District (between the Strip and Downtown) features high-end touches that compete with many of the penthouses on the Strip. The open floor plan makes every room feel massive while the pool feels like it belongs at a spa. This modern luxury house is an excellent spot for a group of friends looking to have fun and chill while having enough space to spread out and recharge. While the price is on the higher side for a house in the area, it is several hundred dollars cheaper than similar luxurious properties in Sin City.
Airbnb hosts in Las Vegas typically brag on their listings about the number of people that could theoretically sleep in their home. This particular post is almost a parody of that trend, offering 27 beds (which includes air mattresses) across seven bedrooms to sleep 40 or more individuals. To its credit, this tropical home features an enormous pool with a hot tub, cabanas and outdoor TVs. It’s also close to the Strip. While 40-plus housemates would be a lot, if they’re people you like, it could make for quite the weekend of revelry.
Entering this property will feel like you’ve teleported to a ski resort in the Rocky Mountains. This semi-rustic enclave, however, is an inexplicably woodsy 5,500-square-foot (511-square-meter) behemoth on two acres (0.8 hectares) of land in one of the rural neighborhoods south of the Strip. You probably won’t find another property as private as this mountain lodge escape. However, it’s just a short commute to the action on the Strip. The nightly rate is rather typical for a large home but downright cheap for one of this magnitude.
Vdara is a high-rise condominium like Palms Place but lies directly in the middle of the action on the Strip, putting its casinos, shows and dining just a few minutes away. With rooms offering an unobstructed view of the Fountains of Bellagio, the condo gives guests the best seat in town for its hourly water show throughout the evening. Sleek with a sophisticated touch, the penthouse is decorated in earthy colors and has five-star amenities, a full kitchen and full windows.
Step into the ’70s at Clairbnb, a local chain of themed houses and rooms overseen by former Playboy playmate Claire Sinclair. This ’70s-inspired suite resembles a hip apartment from that time. With a velvet painting of a horse running through a woman’s hair, avocado-green walls and a vintage Playboy pinball machine, this house offers a unique experience, and is a short walk from Fremont Street.
Vegas has a burgeoning arts community that is flourishing in the galleries around the Arts District. This oasis, which lies just south of that area, provides artists and artsy types a perfect environment to explore their creativity while visiting Sin City. Constructed in the 1950s, the house features a black-and-white pool with a mural of the word maktub (meaning “it is written”) at the bottom and wooden furniture. It also has a music lounge that just begs guests to tap into their inner diva and cut a song or two.
There’s so much to see in Vegas beyond the phantasmagoric (but insular) worlds of the Strip and Downtown, and this Summerlin home is one of the main hubs for sans-Strip culture. This 2,000sq ft (186sq m) home lies 10 miles (16 kilometers) from the bustling Strip and Downtown areas but offers guests tranquility while visiting Sin City. The beautiful house can host up to eight people and has a pool, jacuzzi and grill, making it an ideal place if you’re traveling with kids. Also, the Red Rock Canyon nature area is just a few minutes away, and shopping and family-friendly entertainment abound.
