Hi everyone, I will be moving to Las Vegas next year and am looking for an apartment to lease possibly near the Valley Medical Hospital Center. I know people complain about these threads but I have read a few and they all seem to address purchasing houses. I obviously would like a nice area to live in with a garage or some kind of security for my car. If you have any suggestions on specific places please let me know.

I am looking for a 1 bedroom apartment.

I don't know much about Las Vegas at all so any and all information is much appreciated.

I also tried googling around and saw some really nice apartments called Veer Towers and read that it might be possible for $1000/month however most listings state around $1400/month. I also see others Las Palmas and Oasis at around $600/month which seems like a decent price however I read that the area around UNLV is not too safe.

Reading about the car thefts, I would really like some place where my car is more secure.

I lived in the Mayan Plaza Apts [on ALTA at Shadow] for several years and used to drive by it every day on the way to work[pre retirement]

VERY well maintainedm lots of UMC and Valley personnel living there.

It has one of the NICEST one bedroom apts on the second floor that I have ever lived in....BIG betroom jacuzzi tub, balcomey off the bedroom and another off the living room w fireplace......I LOVED it .



PS Mayan is 1 block from Valley Hosp.
Pool, workout room .....EXCELLANT Apts

As Dyn says the Mayan. There are also two sets of town houses. Shadow Lane and Shadow 2 I think. One is called Town Villas. These are pretty nice two/three story town houses in a gated community. The Shadow Lane one has a pool. These in general are 3/2s with two car garages.

Around $1100.

By "near" Valley Hosp., I assume you mean at least five miles west?

How is the safety in regards to robberies and car thefts or break ins at the Mayan and Shadow Lane and Shadow 2? Is the Mayan a gated community?

Sorry if I sound a bit cautious I am just extremely new to the area and will be very busy with many other things so I would like safety be the very least of my worries.

I don't believe Mayan is gated. And there will be a problem in that area with car thefts and burglaries. YOu would want to have a good car alarm.

The area is not great. Shadow is pretty much OK but off it is pretty scuzzy. I would not walk to the hospital at 2AM...though I would during the day.

The townhouse complexes are gated and the homes have garages.

How is the area a bit south east of North Las Vegas Airport near Ollie Detwiler Elementary School in terms of crime etc?

Also I would like to limit my budget to possibly $800/month max and it is fine if it is 2 bedroom. Garage parking is preferable.
