About the property

Full house sleeps 12, RV parking, privacy, 2 miles from everything in town.

This listing, is divided into two vacation rentals.

The Mainhouse (sleeps 8): The Mainhouse has a kitchen, living room, dining room, kitchenette. 3 bedrooms that include a master bedroom w/comfy king size bed with a jacuzzi size bathtub along with 2 more guest bedrooms with queen size beds, a couch w/a queen size hide-a-bed, a futon. 2 full baths, ac/heating, washer/dryer, WiFi, printer, BBQ, a full size patio table for dining outdoors, and offers enough room for RV parking.

This Mainhouse is secured from the Private Guesthouse Suite and only shares a laundry room with locking doors on both sides to prevent access to either side if rented separately.


The Guesthouse Suite (sleeps 4): (ad# 4098841) The Guesthouse offers 600 sq feet of living area, a bar area to eat, a couch, 2 twin size futons, a comfy king size bed, walk in closet, a full size refrigerator, a full size bathroom, private front/rear entrances, dedicated ac/heater, washer/dryer, printer and dedicated WiFi.

This studio is secured from the Mainhouse and only shares a laundry room with locking doors on both sides to prevent access to either side of it.

Please note: The Guesthouse has no kitchen nor access to a kitchen, this is similar to a hotel room, eat out only (unless you rent Mainhouse also).

The Guesthouse comfortably sleeps 2 people, it only has one king size bed and is a studio, any additional people will be sleeping on the 2 futons.


The Mainhouse and Guesthouse are not shared if rented separately, similar to a duplex, they have their own front and rear doors as well as their own central heating and AC units. Only the laundry room is shared.

You can book just the Mainhouse that sleeps 8 by itself, or the Private Guesthouse Suite that sleeps 4 by itself, or the entire home for a family that sleeps 12 and needs more room.

To reserve the Private Guesthouse Suite, contact the owner for availability and discounted pricing.

The extra Guest fee will be waived on the Mainhouse if you rent both the Guesthouse and Mainhouse together.


This desert home backs against the the majestic Mt. Charleston, the trail is directly behind us! Spend your days 4 wheeling up Mt. Charleston directly behind us, hiking in Death Valley or Ash Meadows and your evenings admiring the stars!

We are one hour closer to Death Valley National Park than any place in Las Vegas!

Take advantage of the peaceful environment to recharge your energy, catch up on reading, write a book, or just relax and enjoy the solitude of pure nature.

We have many diverse restaurants in Pahrump - my favorite is only minutes away - Ohjah Japanese Steakhouse Sushi and Hibachi. We are just minutes away from casino's, as well as Albertsons and Smiths grocery stores if you prefer to prepare your own meals, and we are right off of hwy 160.


Our interaction with guests:

You do not need us to check in or out. You will have your own digital code to get in and out. This is a very safe, quiet place with desert and mountain views. Maps and snacks are provided. Menus and brochures are on the kitchen counter, Let me know if I'm missing anything to make your stay perfect!


The neighborhood:

What do I love about my neighborhood? It isn't one! The patio faces 20 acres of desert. The home is on 3.75 acres of land with no neighbors in front or the back, the majestic view of Mt. Charleston is captivating at sunset, many times in the summer the clouds get caught behind the mountain and you can sit on the porch and watch the lightening show for hours and in the winter you can always see the beautiful white snow. Here you will find serenity, peace, and a tranquil calmness. Come see the stars and Milky Way in its rawest form.


Getting around:

Parking can accommodate cars, trucks, trailers, etc. The driveway is on 2 sides, so it can fit RV's and trailers on the side while several cars can fit in the front, we can even offer full RV hookups (extra fee). We are one street from the main highway (160) and easy to find. The main 'drag' of Pahrump is less than 5 minutes away.

Sorry, no pets allowed.

No parties unless the whole house is rented or the other units are not reserved by other guests.

About Julie Opp

I needed a place to stay when coming to Front Sight, so I decided to buy a property and share it. The property is clean, super quiet and offers you the peacefulness of being in your own home.

Julie Opp purchased this house in 2012

Why Julie Opp chose Pahrump

As a member of Front Sight I want to make this experience what I would expect for myself. After a long day of training, there is nothing better than going home, barbecuing or having dinner ready in the crock pot, grabbing your own food out of the refrigerator, sitting outside with a fire and watching the sunset over the mountains. We have a lot of guests who come to visit death valley, our wineries, Spring Mountain and Pahrump Valley speedways, even the Baker to Vegas run. You just can't replace 'home' with a hotel room.

Places to go:

Death Valley National Park

Spring Mountain Motor Resort -

Red Rock Canyon

Front Sight Firearms Training (22 miles away)

Jimmy Lewis Off Road

Ash Meadows Bird Sanctuary

Pahrump Valley Winery


Amargosa Opera House

Tecopa Hot Springs

What makes this house unique

A 'House/Home', Laundry, Internet, WiFi, Direct TV, Patio with BBQ and Misters to keep you cool on hot summer days, Ice Coolers, RV Parking for 2, Full Hook Ups available (add'l charge), 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, Jacuzzi size bathtub in master bath, and a printer for travel itineraries/boarding passes. Optional Private Guesthouse Suite (addt'l cost) with its own front and rear entrances or reserve as a separate rental. If Guest/Mainhouse are combined there is enough room for 12 to sleep. There are towels, sheets, blankets, spices, dishes, laundry detergent, coffee, start up toiletries, basically everything you need if you were to move in tomorrow, minus personal items, toiletries and food, for close to the same cost as a hotel. This is NOT a mobile home.

Yes there are a lot of rules...but they're mostly common sense.

  • 4 of 5

We found the house to be really convenient for our needs. There are some small things you need to overcome...the walls/doors are a little thin so people need to be quiet when others have gone to bed...the owner does ask you to run through a fairly lengthy checklist of maintenance (but, again, nothing unreasonable). Overall it's a well equipped and roomy house with a nice patio and BBQ that made for a pleasant trip. Easy access to restaurants and shopping in Pahrump and 20-25 minutes to Front Sight.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review! As for the checklist, I wish I didn’t have to do it, but as you stated, it’s common sense, which many people just don’t have, and I’ve had to learn the hard way (i.e. dont burn decorative candles, don’t turn off outdoor motion sensor lights, don’t move furniture, etc.) i’ve had to add to the list as time has gone on, things I would never think I’d have to put in writing, ha. Most people wouldn’t even need to look at it, it’s for those that really need help and guidance in life (usually for airbnb guests). :) Hopefully we will see you again next year!

Clean, close to both vegas and Death Valley

  • 5 of 5

Clean home, comfortable, and mid way to get Las Vegas and Death Valley. Home is well maintained and great for a family. Made some meals here to allow us to go all day in Death Valley. Local Walmart is a plus.

Still my favorite place to stay in Pahrump

  • 5 of 5

Even when there was a slight problem that was not a fault of the house, Julie and her crew remedied the situation as quick as could be expected.I almost want to rate the house low so that lets people start staying there.
