all with a low bank access and fantastic views. Most are in the
Nelscott area; one is close to the casino. You’ll find a
variety of goodies, depending on the home: fireplaces, multiple
bedrooms, dishwashers, Jacuzzis, washer/dryers, hot tubs, cable
TV, VCR, barbecues; there’s a loft in one, and another sprawling
home has two apartments. Pets are allowed in some homes –
ask ahead. Each comes with complete kitchens so you’ll have
a home away from home. Most have the seventh night free. Prices
range from winter $85 to summer $230 per night. www.getaway2thecoast.com.
