We are Canadians who are looking for a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in Las Vegas. We are looking for a place where we and our family and friends can come down and escape from our winters.

We have noticed that there seems to be great prices in the Sunrise Manor area. We have looked (via internet) at a complex called Mountain Side at 6800 E LAKE MEAD BL. We are not concerned about commute times, schools, etc. as the place would be for recreational use. But we still would want a decent area that is relatively safe and secure.

Any thoughts or comments? Thanks!!

Pass up anything on E.Lake Mead. It's a great deal for a reason.
Better yet, go towards the South strip, near South Point and M casino's.
Great area, close to it all and your stuff may still be there when you come back each time.

Don't go there...the NE is not suitable to snow birds and such.

I concur with the two post above, look for another area.

I also agree. If you are looking for a nice neighborhood at fair prices, look in the NW area of town. Summerlin is nice, as are Mountain's Edge (Enterprise) and Green Valley (Henderson)...all are fairly reasonable. Best of luck!

Give Pinkstring a rep up. Near South Point is ideal for snowbirds.

You've probably already made your decision. I lived in the southern part of Sunrise Manor, close to Charleston, east of Los Feliz, in the hills on Copper Rd. We had a nice view and the place was incredibly cheap for .61 acres, pool, view, 3,000sf. In 2012, the place is now only worth in the $200,000s. It's not as groomed or tract homey as Summerlin. I loved the true custom homes. I didn't really have a reason to go up to Lake Mead, but South/East Sunrise Manor is quiet nice, unless you like cookie cutter Summerlin... which has many more amenities.

I don't think the area is too bad, but it is lower income, and becoming more ethnic than other areas, like Summerlin and Henderson. Bonus, you get to watch the Blue Angels from Nellis doing fly bys. There is nothing wrong with diversity and multiculturalism. Which, is rampant in that area.
