I will be moving to the little rock area next month and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on where to rent an apartment?

I've been looking online for ratings, but it seems like people only write reviews if they have something negative to say. The things I'm most concerned about are safety, noise, flooding (if near the river), insulation (so I don't have to spend a ton on air conditioning), and bugs/pests.

Thanks for the suggestions.

The Riverdale area has lots of nice apartments, and it's very convenient if you're working downtown.

Some obvious questions; what are you willing to pay, do you need to be near work (where), what amenities do you prefer, etc.

Thanks for the response.

For location, I'd prefer something within a 20-30 min drive of little rock. Price I'm not too concerned about. I'm more interested in knowing which complexes are considered the best to live in...not necessarily the best value. Also, I'm not too concerned about amenities...as I said before my main concerns are safety, noise, flooding, wall insulation, and bugs/pests.

Thanks again

I just went through an apartment search in Little Rock, so I'll provide a little feedback. There are some nice lofts downtown if you like that sort of atmosphere. Block 2 Lofts is one I toured and I was pretty pleased with the quality of the units they're remodeling I was shown. The Residences at Riverdale, Riverwalk Apartments, and the Park at Riverdale were all very nice apartments in a nice area- Riverwalk is actually on the River (above the levee) and the neighborhoods are mostly upscale apartments, houses, and tech or corporate business offices. I only toured, so I can't give adequate feedback about wall insulation or noise.
One complex I was impressed with was Rivercliff. It's up on a huge hill on a chunk of wooded land that the owners of the complex have owned since the 1940's apparently. The units were very nice, completely updated. All concrete construction (but it looks nice, not like cinderblocks or anything), and some units don't have any shared walls so I would assume it's pretty quiet. The views from the unit I was shown were excellent. They're a bit pricey compared to some apartments in the area (as are the Riverdale ones), but it felt more like a community and appeared to have more long-term residents than I expect from an apartment complex. I ended up not renting there because I found a house, but if I were picking a nice apartment relatively close to everything while feeling like it's own little island, that's where I'd have leased.

Totally agree with thewizard regarding Rivercliff. It's awesome. I'd live there in a heartbeat. A friend who lives there tells me the next door neighbor could throw a party with 200 guests, shoot fireworks, and set off an atomic bomb -- and my friend would never hear any of it. Oh, the joys of solid concrete construction!

I lived in Riverwalk. I liked the apartments and always felt fairly safe, but they are by no means sound proof like Rivercliff.

Thanks for all the responses. I'll definitely be sure to check out Rivercliff.


Another place that was recommended to me was Westside Creek. Does anyone have any experience with them or any other complexes in the West Little Rock area?

Thanks
