Wife will be attending the West Charleston campus of CSN and I'll be taking classes at UNLV. Need to find a rental somewhere in the middle. The areas immediately near the two campuses seem less than desirable based on my research. The top of our rental budget is $1,200 per month... 2+ bedroom (preferably 3) and preferably either a SFR in a gated community or gated apartment/condo community with elevator for upper floor access (I'm in a wheelchair and on an unrelated note hate to have upstairs neighbors!) in a SAFE neighborhood. Being near amenities such as restaurants, coffee shops, etc. (read WalkScore of 50+) is of utmost importance! Mainly interested in more brand new developments as that increases the chances of them being more wheelchair friendly.

Thanks in advance!

I am not sure if you are going to find your hunt an easy one.

I will give you a place that will work for the wheelchair. That is Manhattan on LV Blvd South.

That is a modern elevator building with parking underneath. It is not a walkable neighborhood however. Kind of in the boondocks with a car to everywhere.

Park Avenue next door is similar.

Canyon Lakes at Sahara and Fort Apache might work in their down stairs units. Older though and probably hard to deal with the bathrooms. Outside parking only though pretty flat and accessible. This one will meet the walkable thing.

You might score in the SW though the new places out that way tend to be boondocks as well.

I checked all the rentals claiming accessibility but they are either expensive or in Sun City and age restricted.

Thanks for the input, lvoc. I wouldn't worry too much about accessibility... Been renting in different towns in a couple of different states in the past 10+ years and not one place I lived in was advertised as "accessible"... My main concern is everything else on that list: 1. Location 2. Safety of the neighborhood, and 3. Age of the construction/community. Yes, if we're talking about a 2-story building, then I'm in trouble, but if you help me narrow down my search based on the location and the other two criteria, I'll take care of the rest.
