Description

I have 20-30 feet of parking space on my level, concrete driveway or in front of the house along the road. I live in a ranch neighborhood 15-minutes from downtown Las Vegas and/or "the strip," and I have electricity and water available. My property is an organic teaching garden and we offer our seasonal extra fruit and veggies to enjoy with your meal. You are welcome to sit in the garden.

I should caution you about visiting in your RV in the SUMMER in Las Vegas as the heat can sometimes rise to 117-F in June, July & August. It is frequently over 108-F. Most hotels have a place to park your RV while you stay in one of their rooms or you can ask me if my Airbnb guesthouse and/or guest room are available to reserve; this is much less expensive than a hotel and both are very nice. I don't offer an electrical RV hook-up for air conditioning in the summer anymore because I have burned out a plug and adapter and blown a circuit breaker. But I have delicious well water to offer you and you may have as much as you need.

Friendly little dogs, up to about 12-pounds, are welcome to run and play in my fenced back yard, I have a 6-pound Yorkie. Larger dogs aren't welcome in my yard. If you travel with pets you cannot leave them alone in the RV.

House Rules

Please don't bring large dogs to my yard; or leave dogs or cats in your RV while you are gone;

Access Road Conditions

Paved road.

Tow Vehicle Parking Details

On the street in front of my house.

Availability

Legend:
Available date.
Unavailable date.
Use the stay request form above to make a request with this host for a given date.

I do a few spontaneous trips in the summer, but feel free to give me a shout and see if I am here.

Also, please consider the high, sometimes dangerous, temperatures in Las Vegas during the summer. These can make camping very unpleasant. If you decide to stay in a hotel many will offer a place to park your RV.

Or, , , , I have a very nice Airbnb Guest House and Studio Apartment that may be available. Nightly rent is $49.00 or $79.00. They are in my garden, very nicely set up for guests and nicely air-conditioned. They have the amenities of a hotel room including self-check-in with a keypad lock and much much more. 20 minutes from the famous strip but in a safe country neighborhood.

Let me know a couple of days in advance if you can as I may be in and out of internet service, or I may even be home ? ? ?

Enjoy your summer.

Leslie

Location

Las Vegas, NV, United States of America

Suggested Local Attractions

The casinos are always a big local attraction. Also, for the hikers and climbers; Valley of Fire, which is about 1-1/2 hours away and Red Rock Canyon, which is about 1/2-hour from here is a nice break from the casinos.

Restaurants, Walmart and shopping centers are conveniently close - just walking distance to 5-minutes by car from the house.

An oasis in Vegas!

We stay at the Tomato Lady location for two nights.
It was in a nice neighborhood, quiet and safe.
We had a few nice conversation with our host. Our host shared with us a lot of very good tips about downtown Vegas, gardening and philosophy of life.
A very great person to meet.
For these reasons, we appreciate a lot our passage in Vegas.
Oh yeah! also for the almonds we picked on a tree from the door of our camper!

Thank you Tomato Lady!

Great stay with the lovely Tomato Lady

We spend a wonderful time at this place. Even though tomatoes were not in season yet it was great to see her beautiful garden and to meet her and hear her stories of the Wild West. It was a perfect experience, thank you very much for everything!

Great stay in veggie paradise

We had grad stay with Leslie in Las Vegas and enjoyed the morning view of her beautiful garden. Thank you especially for the tour through your veggie paradise and the insights into your personal experience.
It was amazing to see how gardening can generate such a fascinating variety even in rather dry and difficult conditions.

An oasis in the desert

What a nice stay we had at Leslie's place, she's such a kind lady. We had the chance to enjoy two peaceful nights on the surrounding of Las Vegas. Thank you so much and hope to see her at our place in this summer.

Beautiful garden and lovely host!

I don't think one could find a more perfect stay in Las Vegas. Away from the hustle and bustle of the strip and downtown vegas, this property is a true gem. Housing a stunning garden business in the back yard, the property is beautifully landscaped and impeccably kept. Our host was very sweet and more than accommodating in many ways. All the necessary amenities for happily provided and the neighborhood was quiet and safe. Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

Phenomenal 💥

We had a beyond lovely stay at the tomato garden! Our host was very welcoming and gave us lots of useful advice. The location is close to many attractions in Las Vegas and her dog is the cutest thing in the entire world! We’d definitely recommend staying here and we hope to return sometime! :)

Best stay ever!

We absolutely loved staying with the tomato lady, she made us feel at home immediately! She offered us everything we needed and even invited us to watch a movie together twice, which we gladly accepted. Her gardening practices in the desert are really interesting, there’s always something going on in her house! We felt sad we had to leave. The tomato lady is the best and we highly recommend staying with her :) !!

Very friendly, nice flat place to park.

Host was very welcoming. I enjoyed staying here and having electricity in the heat of the summer was a necessity.
First night I stayed on nearby Air Force base as I had some things to take care of, spent the rest of our time in Las Vegas here. It was just a little bit easier getting home at night rather than having to drive back to base.

Wonderful

We had a great stay here. The host has lived an interesting life and we loved hearing about it. Parking on the street, early morning traffic but not to bad. Electric 110 available if needed, water also. The Strip is about 15 minutes away. Would stay again if in the area. Thanks.

Great Gardening Advice

What a fantastic experience. Our host was so welcoming and generous. We went on several tours of the garden, and our host even provided coffee. We learned about desert gardening tips and tricks, and our host spoke with us about her RV travel experiences. We has such a good first night that we decided to stop by again on our way back through town. Highly recommend location.

Warm welcome in a good neighborhood!

We had a really good stay in front of the house of Leslie! We had a really warm welcome and we immediately felt safe in this big city! With a Uber and the other day with our own RV, we went to the Strip: About 20 min drive.
For us it was the ideal combination; sleeping in a quiet neighborhood and also have the best experience of this 24/7 city!

An oasis is the desert

We spent a lovely couple of days in this desert oasis. The Sweet Tomato Test Garden is a fascinating place within a short distance of crazy Vegas. Tomato Lady is a great host from whom we learnt a little about the difficulties gardening in a desert.

Wonderful time with great conversation

We stayed two nights in front of L‘s house but still felt very safe and welcome. We spent time together in the wonderful garden in the backyard and we are thankful for meeting L who is a great and interesting person. Thus, we can definitely recommend this place since L is also looking for new connections. To go to the Strip we took the bus which took us 45 min to get there (however 1,5h back).

Sweet Spot

Tomato Lady is very sweet and generous; where else are you treated to morning coffee and offers to go out for dinner? We also enjoyed all the tid-bits of gardening information, and some fresh eggs! There was plenty of room to park our 19 foot R-pod and our towing vehicle.

We spent a delightful evening with our intriguing host. She very soon made us feel like friends. We look forward to returning her hospitality when she travels our way. Address easy to find and close to "the Strip".

Very Nice Host, Warm and Caring, safe place for a female traveling along.

I stayed two nights parked in her driveway. She offered fresh eggs from her chickens for breakfast. Even allowed me to use her shower and plugged my trailer into her power. Awesome lady with interesting organic fruit and veggie beds in her yard. Nice to have a safe place while traveling along. Highly recommend.

We had such a lovely time with Tomato Lady, really enjoyed her company. She is a very busy person but she took time out to share with us. We leave with fond memories of Vegas. Please keep in touch.

Very Warm Host

We stayed 2 nights after having a tour of her garden/yard and learning about her gardening experiences. She not only allowed us to stay in her driveway but also allowed us to use her power. From her place it was easy to get down to the strip. Thank for the place to stay Leslie, hope to see you again in the future.

A delightful host and a trouble free holiday in Las Vegas

I stayed two nights, parked in front of her house in the very heart of Las Vegas. Getting back and forth to the strip was easy and quick. The Tomato Lady is aptly named as she is an expert on gardening and very willing to share her ideas and expertise. I purchased some tomato seeds from her that are especially for producing tomatoes in the hot desert sun. Once again, the Boondockers have made RV travel for me (a single lady) an enjoyable and safe occurrence.

extremely welcoming and friendly

Leslie is very friendly and incredibly welcoming lady, and not only allowed us to park in her driveway, but also very generously allowed us use of her power during our stay. As we are travelling with 10 m.o. baby Leslie also gave us a ride to downtown and to the Strip. THANK YOU LESLIE :*
Her spot was big enough for our 23 feet with slide rig. Access to her drive was very easy.

We were very pleased to be able to stay with Leslie during our time in the area and would not hesitate to stay there again in the future if the space is available!
