• malibuIt hasn't always been the case that Las Vegas was a good destination for vacation renters. Not that homes haven't always been available to out of town renters for short term use. They have been available almost since Las Vegas became a destination in the first place. But today it's a whole new ballgame, so to speak. With AIRBnB and Homeaway making vacation home rentals a common thing, Las Vegas faces the reality of everyone imagining that their home is a good potential rental simply because it's in Las Vegas. But in truth, this is just not the case at all.

  • In a stunning 4 to 3 vote, the Las Vegas City Council has voted to enact a new and draconian law that all but closes the doors on vacation rentals inside the city. Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian, who has literally stalked the vacation rental industry for the last 10 years or more, led the charge against everyone operating a vacation rental inside the city. The new law is largely based on emotion and anger and contains little sound logic at all, hence the draconian nature of the "legislation" passed. Lois called in her political favors to get the votes she needed, and in doing so, showed that she is more concerned with her own feelings more than actual facts. This seems a very popular trend in lawmaking lately. Legislating "personal beliefs" instead of sound logic and common sense.

  • In Las Vegas there are so many ways to spend time and hard earned cash to enjoy one's self here as much as possible. Truly this is a place where activity and fun are top priorities. And of course this includes gambling and some naughty fun too. But probably for most of us it, there are many we might not think of at all. Where else in the world has so much been created and dedicated to nothing but having a good time. Of course there is a little business that goes on here from time to time. Whichever is the case, Las Vegas concierges are a valuable commodity here.

  • When it comes to enjoying the nighttime, Las Vegas has no shortage of options. Both on and off The Strip, there are choices to cuit every taste and preference. One of the best and most recent is a hip and happening place called The LINQ. Comprised of what was essentially a service alley and the former Imperial Palace Hotel and Casino, The LINQ now offers an awesome and fun filled nighttime (or daytime) experience.

  • Las Vegas McCarran AirportThe ever expanding Las Vegas airport just added a new milestone to it's history. In March, the airport served over 4.2 million passengers!

  • Nevada seems to have a desire to make life harder for ridesharing companies. With several bills now working their way through the state legislature, there is much to be concerned about for companies like Uber and Lyft. Depending on who you ask you're either going to hear that the state is being overbearing and unfair, or that the state simply wants drivers and companies to come inline with the taxi companies that must abide by more stringent rules than those currently being imposed.

  • Many westerners dream of an exotic trip to India. Some dream for a lifetime while others are fortunate enough to end up making the journey many times. Either way, it's important to remember than India is a massive country with hundreds if not thousands of destinations worth exploring. From it's exotic temples to it's incredible culture and amazing people, India is truly a place that someone couple spend a lifetime exploring. We've picked some of our favorite and most recommend places in India and listed them here.

  • The Vegas Vacation Rental Association has announced their new website www.vegasvacationrentalhomes.com. This new site lists vacation homes around the Las Vegas valley that belong to VVRA members, offering a degree of confidence above and beyond the norm. The website offers beautiful listings of various homes and the ability to book reservations with owners directly.
