We’ve recently started a 10 day house sitting in Las Vegas. We’re in a lovely home on the west side of Las Vegas in the Spring Valley area looking after the home and a very nice 9 year old dog, lab and retriever mix.
We came up to Las Vegas a day early and booked a stay in the Rio Hotel and Casino. When we checked in, the guy at the front desk handed us our keys and said that we had been upgraded to one of the VIP suites. It was quite a nice upgrade. The room was a two room suite of probably over 1000 square feet, guest bath, huge main bathroom with shower and Jacuzzi tub. The rate we were paying was probably one tenth of the regular rate for this room. We were wishing that we had the opportunity for a longer stay.
The house we’re in is very comfortable and large with a very nice private back yard. There’s also a nice pool and built in BBQ. The owners are taking a vacation in Hilton Head, South Carolina.
So far the weather has been nice although the wind was a bit cold for a couple of days. We’ve been enjoying a long walk with the dog each morning and plan to visit some of the sights in Las Vegas that are not on the Strip.
