The party could be ending at one luxury rental in Clark County.
County attorneys plan to sue 1111 Investment Holdings LLC following complaints that the Las Vegas-based company is illegally renting a suburban home.
Neighbors say almost every weekend since February has brought a new set of faces to 5645 N. Juliano Road in the northwest Las Vegas Valley. Their issues with renters include loud music, traffic congestion and an abundance of litter linked to the home.
One neighbor told the Las Vegas Review-Journal she saw tenants jump into the home’s pool from its second-floor balcony. A fight broke out after one of the parties, she said.
“It’s like we’re all waiting for the bomb to go off,” said the neighbor, who asked not to be identified in fear of retribution. “How big is this next party going to be? How dangerous are the people attending going to be?”
A complaint submitted to county code enforcement officials alleged one intoxicated renter broke into the house through a window after being locked out. Another stated that renters were seen bringing handgun cases into the residence.
Police had eight calls for service to the home between February and March, Metropolitan Police Department records show. No arrests were made.
‘Barbie Mansion’ turned ‘C.R.E.A.M. Estate’
Renting homes for fewer than 30 days has been banned in residential areas of the unincorporated county since 1998.
Regardless, county records show the 2,900-square-foot home on Juliano Road was listed for rent this year on Airbnb.com as the “Barbie Mansion.” It is now listed for $450 to $750 a night on creambnb.com, which advertises local rentals owned by 1111 Investment Holdings.
The website describes the five-bedroom, five-bathroom home, now christened the “C.R.E.A.M. Estate,” as a “South-of-France-meets-Las Vegas getaway.” Its amenities include a hot tub, heated pool and miniature golf.
Representatives for 1111 Investment Holdings could not be reached for comment. A representative for creambnb.com did not return an interview request.
‘An important case’
The county sent the owners of the property four cease-and-desist letters in March and April. All were ignored, county officials say. So on Tuesday, county commissioners authorized the district attorney’s office to sue 1111 Investment Holdings in Clark County District Court.
Commissioner Larry Brown, who represents the home’s neighborhood, said a steady stream of evidence from neighbors will help make the county’s case.
“This will be an important case for us because we felt that we really built a solid legal case for the (district attorney) to take to court,” he said.

Company offers rentals with recognizable names
Many associate luxury rentals with the names Hilton and Marriott, but 1111 Investment Holdings LLC appears to be trying to realign the industry with the likes of racer Mario Andretti and rapper Tupac Shakur.
Property records show the company has paid about $1.25 million for real estate in Clark County, Las Vegas and Henderson since 2014. The home at 5645 N. Juliano Road was bought for $575,000 in January.
The properties, almost all condominiums, align with rentals listed on the website creambnb.com.
For a few hundred dollars a night, renters can pick between the Tupac Memorial Penthouse Suite in the Platinum Hotel & Spa, the Ghostface Killah Suite in the Palms Place Hotel and Spa, and a penthouse at Palms Place named after Andretti.
County staff did not say whether they were investigating any of the listed properties besides the one at 5645 N. Juliano Road.
Creambnb.com indicates it is linked to C.R.E.A.M World Realty, another local company whose president is Manish Patel. Patel is also the manager of 1111 Investment Holdings LLC.
