Hi everyone,

I have been doing a lot of research as far as area goes and what I would like but I was looking for some more personalized advice or recommendations on some communities to live in. Preferably furnished to start. I have searched through many privately listed homes or townhomes but I am trying to get more information on the units available in communities. It is for myself and a good friend. We are two younger males coming from NJ. My friend is transferring to UNLV to finish his degree and I have decided to move out here with him for the experience. I am financially stable and the job market woes do not worry me. I am aware that the general consensus is that the west, southwest, and southeast areas are usually the most desirable. But I am open to any suggestions if they seem fit. After some research I see communities such as Park Ave or The Manhattan seem nice. I like the fact that these units appear to be individually owned and then rented versus rented from the community itself. ( Tends to keep a nicer feel. )

As always though, I am open to whatever option seems to best fit.
Trying to stay slightly on the affluent side of things as a general thought if possible.

Looking for: ( But will consider all options )

- Rent under 1500
- Furnished
- Contemporary look or feel a plus
- 2 Bedroom
- 2 Car Garage Preferred ( We are car enthusiasts. )
- Nice upgrades / furniture

I saw a unit at the Park Ave. available that looked nice. It was an upgraded two bedroom with nice furnishings. They wanted roughly 1300 a month. This is a possibility but since I believe it is a shared underground parking garage, I want to still keep looking.

The apartment review websites give a lot of the complexes bad reviews which is why I came here. It is very difficult to decipher which is actually a nice place.

Looking forward to hearing some suggestions!

Much appreciated,

Nick

I like Manhattan inside the community, but don't like what's outside. Immediate neighborhood around it is not very nice. It might be embarrassing to drive to until the gate closes behind you.
A place like Manhattan condos in a cleaner neighborhood with shops and restaurants right outside would be great. Wouldn't even need to upscale or high-end shops, but a a Fresh and Easy or Walmart Neighborhood Market and a Walgreens plus some places to eat like Chipolte, Cold Stone, Panda Express and a McDondald's would be a huge upgrade over what neighbors Manhattan today.
I like that they are elevator buildings so you can live upstairs without climbing stairs. I'm not sure if the floors are of high enough quality/density so that you won't hear upstairs neighbors stomping around on their hardwood and tile floors above you.

Obvious places are Manhattan, Park Avenue, Boca Raton and Meridien. All are convenient to the strip and the university. Generally a younger demographic. Best in any is one inside parking space. Note the Meridien units may be the nicest of the set though they are older buildings. Boca does not have many furnished and is more expensive.

You could also consider Green Valley Ranch. Also convenient and you can likely find a small single family or a reasonable Townhouse.

OC says Meridien than Park Avenue than Manhattan.. He follows those places..
