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 to 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 kitchen, 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 from Scorsese’s Casino. However, the 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 Strip, this vintage Vegas estate is a five-bedroom house, four of which are ensuite. With affordable rates, the kid-friendly place is less than 15 minutes 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 yet with enough space to spread out and recharge. While the price is on the high side for a house in the area, it is several hundred dollars cheaper than similar luxurious properties in Sin City.

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 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.

Go all out with a stay at this four-bedroom home that sleeps 14. We challenge you to get bored at this sizeable property, which features an enormous game room with shuffleboard, pool table, table football and dart board. The fun isn’t reserved for indoors, with a quarter-size basketball court, tiny golf green and life-size chessboard designed to keep the fun going outdoors. Those looking for a slower pace, with a hangover in tow from the night before, should lounge by the pool and sweat out sins in the sauna.

Vegas has a burgeoning arts community that is flourishing in the galleries around the Arts District. This oasis, which lies just south of the area, provides artists and artsy types with 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 2,000sqft (186sqm) home lies 10mi (16km) 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.

Built with Las Vegas’s searing heat in mind, this sprawling four-bedroom home is a dreamy spot for those traveling as a group. You’ll have your own enormous pool to splash around in, plus an outdoor jacuzzi for soaking up the rays or cooling off after a day spent exploring the legendary Las Vegas strip. Though you’re just eight minutes from Las Vegas Boulevard by car, this quiet oasis makes the bright city lights feel a million miles away. And that’s not even the best part: if you want to be able to drive yourself around town, the house comes with a classic Ford Mustang you can hire for an extra cost.

Take in the vistas of the Las Vegas Strip while lounging in your private hot tub on the 57th floor of a skyscraper. A truly luxurious stay, this penthouse suite features two master bedrooms with jaw-dropping views, letting you soak up the madness below from your Jacuzzi. Though there are only two bedrooms, the whole suite sleeps 10, thanks to numerous sofa beds and a movie room that doubles as a bedroom if needed. As the apartment is part of a hotel complex, you’ll also have daily cleaning and access to room service as well as the on-site spa and hammam. It doesn’t get any more Vegas than that.
