I will be moving to the Beaver creek area this summer and I am in need of a place to live. I am hoping to live in a studio or a 1 bedroom for around $800/month. Can anyone recommend some apartments or areas that would be a good place to look. Thanks

craigslist: high rockies classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events

Vail Colorado | VailDaily.com News

Check the Avon, Eagle-Vail and Edwards areas, there won't be anything in Beaver Creek. You budget is a bit low for a private apartment, but you should be able to find a roommate situation for it. If you don't have a car, be sure you are close to the bus, if you do have a car, be sure there is parking available.

Are there any complexes that I should avoid in general or is everywhere pretty well kept?

It really depends on your comfort level. None of them are really dumpy, some are older, some units are updated, some aren't. We don't have a lot of crime up here, there is always some property theft if a car is left unlocked or a bike is left unattended. Most places have photos posted, so you can get a fairly good idea. You may want to see about renting a room in a house month to month, until you get a real feel for the area. I just saw a place in Edwards on craigslist for $650 a month, own bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.

You'll have a good time, summer is the best time in the valley.

Buffalo Ridge Apartments have a great deal right now:

Apartments for Rent in Avon Colorado - Availability - Buffalo Ridge

If you want to go cheaper you can probably get in a roommate type situation with your own room for $400-$600 a month.

I never did live in Buffalo Ridge, but many of my friends did and they all liked it. I was in the apartments several times though and they are nice enough for the money. It sits slightly above Avon, with a view across to Beaver Creek. It's on the bus route, is about a mile to Beaver Creek gate or less and it's not far from Wal Mart.

If I was in your shoes I'd jump on that deal quick. It doesn't get much better than that.

I also lived at Kayak Crossing for many years:

Eagle Bend Apartments themselves I would avoid. They manage other places like Kayak Crossing and I never had a problem with them.

Eagle Bend itself is about 30 years old and when I lived there, the apartments were well used and run down and also had a rougher element living there. Sunridge Phase 1 and 2 are also older and many of the condos are run down along with again that rougher element of people, especially in the summer with loud music and party behavior and fights at night. The Avon Police and Sheriffs Dept regularly roll through both places, sometimes every 30 minutes to an hour, which helps.

To add to that definitely avoid any Vail Resorts employee housing like River Edge in Avon. I know people that were stuck in River Edge and revolted due to the conditions.

also, I would consider a lock-off situation in a private home. We are also moving up there end of June and several homes we looked at buying had 1 BR lockoffs that were in the 800 range and very private and nice. Good luck with your move!
