Franco Soro purchased this house in 2005

Why Franco Soro chose Nevada

Simply Fantastic. You cannot get this kind of resort setting and privacy in any of the 5 stars resorts in town unless you want to spend $5000 per night for a Tropical Suite as big as this house that may not even have your own private swimming pool just steps away from your room(s).

What makes this house unique

Privacy, Unique private Swimming Pool, Spa, BBQ Station, Theater Room that are unlikely to be found in a 5 stars hotel.

For the fraction of the cost of staying in High scale hotel you enjoy more amenities then your typical hotels around the strip. Away from the crowd but minutes away from all the major attraction and tourist spots but yet just few minutes away on your sightseeing outing..

Refreshingly Charming and Immaculate!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time staying and working at Franco's home yesterday, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something away from the Strip and seeking a nice quiet neighborhood experience in Las Vegas. The home was immaculate and tastefully decorated, and the pool and waterfall were spectacular. Great customer service by the owner who was so helpful at pointing out how everything worked and even provided the most detailed homeowner's manual I have ever seen! :-)

Quiet, away from the maddnes with a fantastic pool

  • 4 of 5

Thanks to Franco & Kay for putting his fantastic home up as a rental. We were welcomed upon our arrival and promptly given an orientation of the house. Both were readily available if anything was needed. The house is located away from the busy life of the strip but driving downtown is a quick trip. The neighborhood is quiet & gated. Enough can not be said about the pool. Out 3 & 6 year old spent much time in the pool.

What a great place to stay. We took our 4 kids (ages 8,6,4,2) for a week long stay at Franco and Kay's home and had a great time. Pool was a huge hit with our kids which made everyone's holiday great. Franco did a great job welcoming us and helping us out whenever we needed something. We really appreciate how prompt he was when we needed something. I would HIGHLY recommend this property to any families that have kids that like to swim and hang out in the pool. Other features are also top notch like outdoor kitchen and fire pit. Theatre room was a great feature but unfortunately we had too many other things to do and didn't have a chance to really watch a movie. The listing information was very accurate and both the house and property were very clean and well maintained. Its obvious that Franco and Kay have a lot of pride in their home. Thanks again Franco for a great week and we will definitely stay with you again next time we come to Vegas.

Wanting to return!

  • 5 of 5

We were felt like home! Relaxing and comfortable. We fit easily with our wheelchairs,kids and grandkids. We are planning to return, in fact have told our friends about it and they want to come with us. The pool is epic, no other way to discribe it. The whole place was clean and welcoming. The owners were friendly and helpful, they were there but we didn't feel like we were being watched. Finally we went for a wedding and the location was perfect for us close to centinal park and Redrock. It was also, easy to find. We will be back, we just have to find a good excuse. Thank you for giving us a home away from home.
