Hi all - my husband and I are moving to El Paso in a month from Memphis, TN. We lived there from the fall of 2010 - fall 2012 and know the neighborhoods pretty well. We have looked for homes to buy online and have a fairly good idea of which ones might work for us. However, we have to be there to see them for ourselves before making an offer etc. We want to buy ASAP, so we are looking for a short-term furnished apartment or executive lodgings that is pet-friendly since we have two cats. My hubby will be working at Ft. Bliss so proximity would be nice (not on the Westside). 79925, 79904, 79903 or 79930 would be ideal, but we would consider other places too. Our household goods will be in storage here in Memphis until we buy and move into a house in EP, so a furnished place is necessary.
I would greatly appreciate it if anyone has recommendations. We emailed the people at Shadow Ridge, High Ridge and La Estancia but they have not replied. Their phone numbers reach only an automated service....quite frustrating. Thanks for any feedback/advice.

I think you're going to have a really difficult time finding furnished apartments that are pet friendly. Maybe you could look for an extended stay motel that accepts pets??

There's a place on Mesa somewhere between Executive and Sunland Park, I forget the name of it now. They do month to month and they have furnished and unfurnished. Not sure on their pet policy, though.

The Caprock Apartments between Shadow Mountain and Thunderbird off N. Mesa has month to month, furnished, pet friendly, corporate units available. They're not new but they're pretty nice, have amenities and lots of green space.

Hey guys,
Thanks for all your replies. After calling a bunch of places, I came to the conclusion that there are companies which lease apartments, furnish them and rents them out as short term corporate lodgings. They charge and arm and a leg for them. However, I finally found a place called Independence Place apartments (on Alabama) which charges around $1,320 a month for a furnished apartment - short term (less than 3 months) available. You have to hook up your own electricity. They are also pet friendly and there is a pet deposit as well. So far, this is the cheapest deal unless you want to stay at an extended stay which is claustrophobic.
Hope this info helps anyone else who is in our position. Thanks again for your feedback.

How about an extended stay hotel for the sake of not bothering with electricity. Unless you're a licensed electrician I wouldn't be foolin' around with electrical wires.

What do you mean hook up your own electricity? You mean call EP Electric and get service started?

You either phrased it funny or they're taking on the risk of someone burning a building down.

I forgot all about IP, I lived at the one in Lawton, OK. Not exactly my preference for an apartment, I'm not a fan of that part of town, no offense to anyone who may live there.

Hi guys,
Haven't been checking into the forum for a few days now......things are chaotic as we try to finalize our plans to move in less than 2 weeks.
Yeah, what I meant about "hooking up the power" was calling your local utility provider to turn on the power....Independence Place does not provide electricity as part of their rent. We have signed a contract for 2 months - $1,310 per month. This includes furniture, large appliances including washer/dryer; cable (no TV), wifi (yes!!) and a $40 fee for our 2 cats. We also had to pay a $350 non-refundable deposit for the cats. We decided to go with them since 1) they are close to Ft. Bliss 2) convenient to grocery stores etc. and 3) we can afford it. We are expecting to rent at least 6-8 weeks to give us time to find and buy a house, plus paint and clean it before the movers bring all our stuff from Memphis.
All things considered, this is the most suitable for us since we cannot afford the $5k a month corporate lodgings and many places are not pet-friendly. On a different move, we booked a suite at an Extended Stay America but those are basically efficiencies - no separate bedroom/living areas. We ended up moving out of it. We are driving with 2 vehicles packed with all the things Allied won't transport for us - paint, combustibles, aerosols etc, AND stuff to fix the new house like paint brushes, rollers, ladder, tools, vacuum cleaner etc. Extended Stay rooms are too small to hold all this stuff without us tripping over them. Yeah, I know....most people don't live like gypsies....what can I say?
Hope that answers your questions. Oh yeah...no place in EP is as dangerous as where we are now....Memphis.
