Las Vegas is a city known for its lavish hotels and resorts, but many young and savvy travelers are turning to Airbnbs for more affordable and unique experiences — and Las Vegas certainly has some of the most unique Airbnbs you’ll find in the US.
But there’s one big drawback to Vegas: it can get hot. Really hot. It’s in the Mojave Desert, with an extremely warm and dry climate and very little precipitation. The city experiences very hot summers, and temperatures can easily reach 105 degrees F or higher. That’s why you’ll want to make sure you book an Airbnb in Las Vegas with a pool — and maybe a hot tub, since it can get chilly on winter evenings (well, into the 50s F).
Every listing below is an Airbnb in Las Vegas with a pool, and most are private. Las Vegas tends to be a rather inexpensive city, and you can find rentals below $50 a night, especially if you don’t mind a shared pool.

MGM Grand Signature Studio
- Bedrooms: studio
- Guests: 4
- Rates from: $49/night
This rental is a one-bedroom suite on the Las Vegas Strip at the MGM Grand. Guests have full access to MGM Grand Signature amenities, including a massive outdoor pool area with a jacuzzi and concierge services seven days a week. It’s a studio unit, but a very big one, and the bathroom is nearly as large as the living area (complete with a soaking tub!) The unit has a kitchenette, though you’ll be so close to the finest restaurants and most popular bars in Las Vegas that you may never use it. It’s without a doubt one of the most affordable Las Vegas Airbnbs you’ll find.
Tahitian Village Suite
- Bedrooms: 1
- Guests: 4
- Rates from: $60/night
Why book an Airbnb in Las Vegas with a pool when you could book one with a pool and a lazy river? Sure, there’s no beating around the bush: this rental is basically just a hotel suite. But you won’t find a hotel room with a private sitting area and a kitchenette anywhere near this price. It’s in Tahiti Village, which is just a few blocks south of the Strip near the airport. Renters get access to everything the complex offers, including several dining areas and a lazy river an eighth of a mile long.
If you’re going to spend most of your time on the Las Vegas strip and don’t want to break the bank, this is an excellent choice.
- Bedrooms: 4
- Guests: 10
- Rates from: $370/night
If you want what most people would consider a party house — but don’t want to pay in the four-digits per night — this roomy home 10 minutes from downtown could be the perfect pick. It has four bedrooms, a billiards room with a flat-screen TV, and a converted garage with Pac-Man, air hockey, a Hot Shot basketball game, and more.
Of course, the reason you’d book this is because it’s an Airbnb in Las Vegas with a pool — but there’s more outside than just a pool. The outdoor space is almost as large as the indoor space, with a cabana, a Jacuzzi, lots of sun loungers, a firepit with lots of seating, and an outdoor grill and dining area. Divide the price by 10 guests, and you’ve got a really fun, really budget-friendly place to stay in Las Vegas.
Super Nintendo House
- Bedrooms: 4
- Guests: 15
- Rates from: $298/night
It’s nearly impossible not to see photos of this rental and not start hearing the Super Mario theme song in your head. This is the perfect booking if some folks in your group only care about having an Airbnb with a pool in Las Vegas, but others want a house packed with fun things to do. Here, you get both. That includes a Nintendo 64 console with all the Mario games you can imagine, a retro Street Fighter arcade console, and closets packed with board games.
The house has plenty of space for a whopping 15 people, plus a picture-perfect outdoor area with a pool and hot tub. Since it’s only a five-minute drive to the Strip, it’d be an ideal Las Vegas bachelor or bachelorette party rental (especially considering the incredibly affordable per-person price if you pack the house).
Luxury Vacation Villa
- Bedrooms: 5
- Guests: 16+
- Rates from: $360
This is the largest Airbnb in Las Vegas with a pool you’ll find on this list. In fact, it’s so big that there’s not really even a limit, but the owners say it can fit at least 16. Those guests are spread between five bedrooms, three of which have bunk beds, so you really can pack people in. And really, given how much there is to do in this house, you may not spend much time sleeping, anyway.
Outside, there’s a private pool with half a dozen sun loungers, plus a three-hole putting green. There’s also a fire pit with lots of seating, an outdoor foosball table, and a grill and covered dining area. Inside, there’s a billiards table, several arcade games (Vegas owners seem to love their arcade games!) and an air hockey table. The bedrooms are kind of small, but it’s affordable enough that even a group of six or eight will find it to be a good deal.
- Bedrooms: 4
- Guests: 8
- Rates from: $525/night
If you always thought it’d be fun to party at the Playboy Mansion but don’t actually want to share the pool, this house is an excellent fit. It has one of the prettiest pools of any Airbnb with a pool in Las Vegas, with a giant grotto-style pool divided by an over-pool walkway, plus an attached hot tub with waterfalls cascading over house-sized piles of rocks. It truly looks like a miniature version of something you’d find at one of the fancy Las Vegas hotels on the Strip.
The roomy home also has a full-sized pool table, four roomy bedrooms, and plenty of indoor and outdoor seating for everyone. It’s also dog friendly, making this an excellent pick for travelers driving to Vegas and bringing their furry friends along. Like a few other Las Vegas Airbnbs with pools on this list, there’s a daily fee for heating the hot tub (which the owners will detail and can bill in advance).
- Bedrooms: 4
- Guests: 10
- Rates from: $580/night
This unique Airbnb with a pool in Las Vegas channels everything the western city is known for: southwestern vibes, subtle influences from south of the border, warm colors and cacti, and even a slot machine or two. The large outdoor area has a resort-style pool surrounded by palms and cacti, plus a full outdoor kitchen complete with a small bar. But the coolest feature may be the roomy teepee with plenty of seating, plus a central fire pit (there’s a backyard fire pit, too).
Inside, renters get an expansive living space with a downright massive kitchen and separate bar area (with two slot machines, no less!) The house sleeps 10 guests in eight beds, so you don’t have to have everyone double up — heck, you could even have someone sleep in the teepee. Note that there’s a small extra fee for heating the hot tub.
The Buddha Estate
- Bedrooms: 4
- Guests: 12
- Rates from: $664/night
The Buddha Estate sits about a 15-minute drive from the Las Vegas strip and is basically your own private resort in the form of a rental home. Sure, it’s a Las Vegas Airbnb with a pool, but it’s also an Airbnb with an outdoor putting green, a peaceful hammock area, a putting green, a giant chess board, and a basketball court — and that’s just the outdoor features. Inside, renters get a home gym with a Peloton bike, a sauna, and a game room with foosball and billiards tables.
The home has seven beds across four bedrooms, plus tons of space for people to sleep on couches. And the outdoor space is ideal for relaxing, too, with loungers, Balinese-style woven chairs, and a roomy hot tub. It’s one of the biggest pools of any of the Airbnbs in Las Vegas and even has a small waterslide — bonus points if you can make a three-pointer while sliding into the pool.
Penthouse at the Palms
- Bedrooms: 3
- Guests: 8
- Rates from: $1,144/night
The Penthouse at the Palms is the quintessential Las Vegas condo. It’s at the Palms (naturally), and has a high-rise private Jacuzzi with absolutely amazing view of Sin City. Oh, and it has two more hot tubs inside. It’s the perfect place to stay if you’re trying to recreate The Hangover (though we’d advise not doing that).
In addition to getting full use of the swanky three-bedroom condo, renters also get to use the facilities at the Palm Resort. That includes the resort pool, complete with in-pool couches, plus the Laguna pool. Both have rentable cabanas and bar service.
This Airbnb doesn’t come cheap, but if you want a true Las Vegas-style experience, it’s the place to book.
How far is Las Vegas from the Grand Canyon?
The distance from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is approximately 275 miles, which is about a 4.5-hour drive. You can go either to the South or North Rim. The South Rim is more popular and more developed in terms of amenities and activities. There are several lodges and campgrounds in the area, as well as a visitor center, restaurants, and gift shops. You can drive to many scenic viewpoints along the rim, but taking the park shuttle will alleviate the hassle of dealing with traffic or finding parking.
The North Rim is more remote and harder to reach, but many people consider it to be more peaceful and less crowded than the South Rim. There is only one lodge and one campground in the area, so you’ll want to book your accommodations well in advance if you’re pairing Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon in one trip. Note that the North Rim is closed between November and May, so don’t plan to head there unless you’re willing to snowshoe your way in (which you actually can do).
How far is Las Vegas from the Hoover Dam?
Las Vegas is approximately 30 miles northwest of the Hoover Dam. Without traffic, it takes about 45 minutes. You can drive yourself, or book a tour from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon. Good options include the half-day Hoover Dam Express Tour, with a guided dam tour and time to explore on your own; a three-hour Pink Jeep Tour that includes narration on the history of the area’s geology and people; or even tours where you can paddle on Lake Mead in front of the Hoover Dam.
If you prefer not to take a tour, you can definitely drive to the Hoover Dam on your own. It’s an easy drive from Las Vegas and there’s usually plenty of parking. You can pay for a self-guided tour in advance online or sign up for a guided tour when you arrive ($30 per person).
Where to stay in Las Vegas
Though the famous Las Vegas strip is the most well-known part of the city, it’s hardly the only place to stay in Las Vegas. The strip is where you’ll find most of the famous hotels like The Venetian or The Bellagio, so most of the Airbnbs in that area are likely to be condos within hotels.
Another area to stay is downtown Las Vegas, which is more local and is more like a “normal” city. It’s home to the Fremont Street Experience (a canopy of LED lights and three stages with live entertainment most evenings). If you want to visit Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam while in Vegas, you may want to stay in Henderson, about 20 minutes southeast of the Vegas strip.
Las Vegas is very drivable and in the middle of a dessert, so it doesn’t take too long to get out of the city. But if you want to visit famous outdoor areas like Valley of Fire State Park and the Desert National Wildlife Refuge, stay on the northern part of Las Vegas. If you’re headed to Red Rock Canyon or planning a day trip to Death Valley National Park, stay on the west side of Las Vegas to make your drive a smidge shorter.
