Wayne's World

Inside Casa De Shenandoah

Posted by Misnomer

Wayne Newton Casa de Shenandoah

The estate is massive, and you occasionally board shuttle buses that take you to various stops on the tour. While waiting for a bus, a plane thundered overhead, reminding how close McCarran airport is to Mr. Newton's home.

The next stop on the Wayne's World tour is a small zoo. This is Wayne's parrot. I was hoping it might sing Danke Schoen, but it just sat there. Talentless bird.

This is Mr. Newton's penguin. He has two, but one was hiding. Even hiding is sort of a talent. That parrot is a hack.

These are Mike Tyson's peacocks - at least according to the shuttle bus driver. He claimed Wayne never had any peacocks, and that these two flew over from Tyson's place next-door, and stayed. I was glad tigers can't fly.

I promised you a monkey, and here he is. Monkeys love two things: eating bananas and ripping people's faces off. "And I'm all out of bananas," his eyes seem to say.

After another short shuttle bus ride, our tour group arrived at the horse barns. Mr. Newton's horses have their own swimming pool. The tour guide said that, for a horse, swimming one lap around the pool is the equivalent of running 5 miles.



Forgive my senseless babbling. This little video was originally a Periscope post. Focus instead on the tour guide, who was way too enthusiastic in telling a group of 60-something ladies more than they cared to know about horse sperm. You also get a good sense of how close to the airport the estate is in this clip.

I was in a movie called "Wayne's Junk Is Better Than Mine"

That's some serious shade being thrown at the parrot. And the bird freakin' deserves it.

Anyway, cool tour. Cooler write-up. Feels like I was there. As such: I can save my $49, stay on the Strip and pay extra for my Bellagio booze. #Priorities

"Gorgeous pool table"

But why is there a stripper pole on the kitchen counter? I mean besides the obvious reason that strip clubs with stages are better than strip clubs without stages.

I was in a movie called "The Biggest Set of Headlights You Can Find".

I was in a movie called "Everyone's Garage is Packed with Junk."

I'm guessing Mike Tyson's peacocks got tired of the bullshit they were getting from his pigeons.....

that Burt Reynolds picture has inspired me to send autographed photos to friends and family and bitch if its not posted in their house. Great article misnomer, as always.

RobbieNomi was in a movie called Wayne's Man Cave

I hope you didn't breathe in any of the black mold in the plane. Maybe that's why everything is covered in ugly plastic.

Plastic fruit

RobbieNomi was also in a movie called "Plastic Fruit"

The entire house is so "OMG" for real. I want to go to this next time I'm out there.
That Mercedes tho.....could the man not see at night!? And I like that they have a separate Visitor's Center for the joint. Did it really need that? And is the giant bronze eagle in the lobby for sale? I feel like I need that over the garage of my house.

I'm just wondering where is Wayne while you tour his house? :)

This was a perfect review, but I have one quibble:

No shatphone?

I was in a movie where I sang the song "Wayne's plane sits vainly on display."

I just came back from a Vegas vacation that included a vist to Casa De Shenandoah. It was a really fun time, the tour did take around 3 hours but it's filled with great Las Vegas memorabilia. I would really recommend this tour for Vegas aficionados and Wayniacs.
