Things you should know:
- I'm not in Vegas yet.
- I don't have a start date yet, I'm just getting a leg up on my housing search.
- I have a large friendly dog who sheds a lot (Kangal).

Has to be along the DVX bus route or within walking distance. All I need is WiFi and access to the kitchen.
Just a place to live until I get back on my feet (6 months - 1 year). I have no paystubs to show (unemployed since July) so I can only provide a job letter from the VA.
Not much in the form of suitable places on Craig's List so I figured I should try posting here.
Thanks.

General guidelines, not hard and fast rules. Hell, I知 breaking one now because I知 renting on Rainbow. But I知 a long time local, so I knew exactly what I was getting into. We try to give the newbies well proven safe guidelines.

Definitely agree with staying west of I-15. I was very tempted to take something along LV Blvd or Nellis but now glad I didn't. Those Eagle Trace units that someone recommended don't look very appealing.

To the OP, craigslist is fine actually if you just know hot to spot and filter out the scams. Never send money "sight unseen."

So, I guess your housing arrangement is pretty much set up already? What do you do at the VA?

You folk are in similar situations but not the same. The OP is dealing with the VA Hospital not the
AF Hospital at Nellis.

Unfortunately they are some miles apart and have different transit routes.

OP has an advantage as the bus to the VA expresses out of downtown. So a rental in the heart of downtown could work. On the other hand OP might want to go off to the west along Craig or Ann or such and transfer to the express after it becomes a local out near the Hospital.

There are some rentals near the VA Hospital but not many. Some nice areas close to the VA so worth a look.
