About the property

Private garden entrance, private bath, quaint, quiet, pets welcome.

Please inquire with me for actual availability. Renting short term (< 30 days) in Las Vegas has been recently complicated by statues undergoing revisions. I am renting on a monthly basis. You don't have to stay the whole month, but since I can only rent to one party per month, the rental rate starts at $500. for 10 days, and goes up from there with a a descending daily rate for up to 30 days.

Thank you for understanding. 'Im happy to work with you on your request but you must inquire before requesting a reservation based on the calendar availability shown.

Come stay with us at our Mini Ranch/Hobby Farm just 5 minutes from Centennial Hills Hospital. Our large, private master suite is yours to enjoy and that includes a distant view of The Strip, Downtown, and two mountain ranges. You access the room from the outside only, not through the home. Outside your door is a small patio with BBQ and table where you can enjoy your morning coffee, watch the sunrise and visit some of our animals. Behind the low fence there are chickens, geese, goats, a horse, and assorted wildlife that appear sometimes. We've seen roadrunners, hawks, coyotes, lizards, squirrels, quail, cottontails, and vultures, to name just a few. You are welcome to bring your pets, even horses. Our almost-rural neighborhood is a great place to walk and ride. Our dogs and cats may be on the people side of the fence, but are content to stay out of your way most of the time. They do not have access to your room.

Our spacious offering features a bay window with seating and table, a Queen Temper-Pedic bed (med-firm), a walk in closet, and a generous 4 piece full bathroom. There is a limited 'efficiency kitchen' with microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and 3 cu ft refrigerator. There's no oven, but I provide an electric skillet. Dish washing is limited. I recommend disposables but provide plates, bowls, cups, flatware, and ceramic mugs, and also coffee. Best suited for snacks, drinks, and breakfast, there are dozens of restaurants within 5 minutes. You'll find a vaguely modern western decor with brown, blue, and rose colors.

You have your own thermostat controls and ceiling fan for your comfort. Two windows open for fresh air if you prefer. The closet is roomy enough for a long stay. The dresser is casual and makes use of the bookcase and canvas drawers; also contains books and games as well.

We are about 20 minutes from The Strip and Convention Center, 25 minutes to McCarren, and 5 minutes to Centennial Hills Hospital and the Northwest Transportation Hub, which takes riders all over via express buses, including UNLV and the airport, although this is not a particularly convenient travel option except on New Year's Eve.

We provide all linens, have laundry facilities available, even vintage games and puzzles if you need some down time after a hard day (or night). Flat screen TV has remote and DirecTV.

There is an additional cleaning fee per booking if you bring any animals. We live on-site and are available to help you with questions or travel information. We are an alternative to the normal "Vegas", a great place to stay if you're visiting friends or don't want the casino scene.

NO firearms allowed. NO smoking / burning indoors. NO Exceptions.

About Holly Rivney

We moved to Las Vegas in 2003 and found a great property with a bigger-than-we-needed house on it. Our extra room has allowed us to host students from Netherlands, Denmark, and Germany, save a friend from homelessness after foreclosure, and keep costs down for travelling friends and relatives. We've enjoyed meeting people and sharing our little secret of Las Vegas - that 2,000,000 people live here, we're not all on The Strip, and that there's a rural community on the edge of town.

Mike is the head of the household and is a software engineer. He works at home, but also travels a lot all over the world, having been to Europe, Africa, The Middle East, and The Himalayas.

Holly, your hostess, is a licensed veterinary technician but finds the demands of a clinic too exhausting. She works for the Pet Poison Helpline, from home, instead. She is also a published science fiction author and is happy to sign a copy of her book (s) for you. A former career as a resort manager assures you of a quality stay.

Mitchell is our son; he is 17. He was the first chair bassoonist at his school, an advancing orange belt in martial arts, and a computer whiz as well. He is planning to go into aeronautical engineering after high school. He sometimes helps with preparing your accommodations here to earn money for that college education.

We were all born in California, and still have extended family there spread out between Los Angeles and San Diego. Being in Las Vegas we enjoy more sunny days and sometimes snow in the winter, right in our yard. We have invested in a solar array that powers our entire home with renewable energy, and we're pretty happy about that from an ecological standpoint as well as a financial one. It gets tough in the summer with the A/C running, is no longer $400!

Holly Rivney purchased this studio in 2003

Why Holly Rivney chose Centennial Hills

PLEASE contact us with an inquiry for availability. Zoning requirements demand we rent to only one party in a 30 day period. If this seems outrageous to you, I encourage you to inform the Las Vegas City Council of your concerns. You may email Mayor Goodman at

You might want to stay with us if you are on a budget and need some quiet time for your stay, or would like to visit friends or family. Are you a travel nurse or intern at Centennial Hills Hospital? We are a bike ride or 5 minute car trip away. Las Vegas is a sprawling city on 600 square miles with over 2,000,000 residents, and The Strip is simply the focus. From our place you get the safety of the community, a new perspective on the city, and local taverns for a little night life without the overwhelming 'everythingness' of the city. We love our ability to have farm animals but also live close to shopping and can access the action easily.

What makes this studio unique

Visiting friends and relatives? Military send off or welcome? Indian Springs and Nellis AFB are less than an hour away. Want to spend the holidays in the snow? We're 30 minutes from darn good skiing and snowboarding. Like a little wilderness? Just 15 minutes to Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Park. And if you really want a taste of The Strip, it's a quick 25 minute drive to Mandalay Bay, or a 20 minute drive to the Old Town and Fremont Street.

You can bring your pets here - even your horses! At night watch the lights come up. See the Luxor beam, the High Roller Linq, Wynn and Encore; look up and watch satellites if the moon is new. We are not 'Vegas' - we are home near schools, churches, and regular people. Come stay with us and earn your 'LOCAL' wings!

Great Fun

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit. My grandson and I had a great time...especially feeding the goats and horse carrots and the dogs Cowboy and Taffy dog treats. Holly is a great host. Bed is comfortable and the rollaway was perfect for my grandson. Especially like the tub, great for soaking and it is an oversized tub, so grandson had is own personal "pool".

Comfortable and private

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed staying in this cute little ranch outside of Las Vegas. The hosts were very gracious and friendly. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that their dogs didn't seem to warm up to us too well and always barked at us when we came and went from the property.

Perfect hidden gem at reasonable price.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed from April 1 thru the 26. Weather was great compared to snow and cold back in Michigan. Will be staying again in the future. Nice and cozy. Great base camp to stay if you have a car. Once you drive around and learn the roads and freeways it makes traveling around easy. Must see Red Rock Canyon. Also hike up Lone Mtn which is real close. Mike and Holly were great hosts. Allowed to use washing machine and dryer was great. Will not have to bring so many clothes next time. The dogs became family after a couple of days. For the price of a casino room and the outrageous resort fees that they are now charging it is a better value to stay with Holly and Mike and get a rental car. Tom W.

A SUPER property in northwest Vegas !!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to spend time away from the strip and close to golf courses in northwest Vegas. Starting with the booking process and correspondence with Holly though to checking in and checking out everything was wonderful. The property was easy to find and very secure, with easy,outside access to your room. The room itself was very clean and had everything that we needed. They have a number of animals on the property .If you are a dog lover they have 2 really cool and friendly dogs . We would highly recommend booking this property.

Enjoyable stay at R 3 Crazy Hearts Farm

  • 5 of 5

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay - it was exactly what I was looking for away from the hustle and bustle of the Las Vegas strip. It was convenient to the golf courses I played at - grocery store, Einstein bagels 5- -10 min drive away. The owners were very accomodating - allowed me to have my dog a little bit a free runaround in the backyard rather than always on the leash. Had nice walks with him in the desert area close to the Farm. I would highly recommend and would stay there again.

We are a great place to stay if you are visiting someone at Centennial Hills Hospital, want to be closer to the Ski and Snowboard resort, or need an affordable place because your friend is getting married and don't mind a little extra driving.

All within an hour's drive you can visit State Parks, National Parks, Recreation Areas, Hoover Dam, see the Atomic History Museum, Natural History Museum, the Springs Preserve, and Floyd Lamb State park where people would spend 6 weeks to establish residency to get a divorce in the early 20th century.

Shooting - one of the best shooting ranges in the west can be found about 10 miles east of us. Programs and lessons available (even a snack bar).

We are always about 5% cooler than The Strip because we are 40% higher elevation. Give us better views and weather.

Riding your horse locally or passing through? We accommodate 2 horses for you; bring your own hay. You can ride out from our property to MILES of mountain trails, or trailer a short distance to MORE trails in the foothills. Ride at Red Rock, Valley of Fire, Mount Charleston. Just one of you and a horse? I'd love to ride with you!
