We are not local and need your help.

We are considering renting either a SHF or a Townhouse near the Red Rock Casino.

We understand, the area is in the community called Summerlin.

How much should we budget the monthly rent on 3BR, 2+Bath, 2 car grage house/townhouse if the property is located within the Summerlin Center?
It looks like the Summerlin Center is close enough to walk for shopping, restaurants, etc.

We also looked at the gated/non-gated community near the Red Rock CC.
Isolated (outside of I-215) from the busy area , hence appears private and quiet.
But, it seems there is not much things to do around that area (If I'm wrong, please correct me.)

Besides, more houses are being built in this area that we wonder about the construction noise.

We know that for the Summerlin Center, the house will be a slightly older.

For the community near the Red Rock CC, the house will be a brand new.

If anyone is renting in the above areas, can you tell me about the rent and the convenience of the location?

Thank you very much.

red rock cc would actually be older than summerlin center, but north of red rock station is the arbors which is older, but the vistas and paseos nearby are more brand new...

besides the power center with costco and borders and the albertsons center, there is not much else for shopping that is walkable and i doubt there are much restaurants except for the ones inside of the casino...it still is not a walking-friendly area unless you stick to the trails...

That is what we were concerned about. I see.

OK, help me with identifying the better location for us.
Is it better to move toward the Whole Foods on W. Charleston Blvd?
We remember from our last trip that lots of shops/restaurants seemed to be available around the Whole Foods.

Also, we were told that a shopping center with all high end stores will be opening near the Whole Foods@W.Charleston Blvd.

Would it be less expensive if we target the rental house around that area?

Any comments?! Thanks in advance.

You won't be doing much walking in Las Vegas. You should find a rental management company to help you with your questions.

We live in the Paseo neighborhood in Summerlin and we like it because has great views of Red Rock and the Strip. Nothing in most of Las Vegas is walkable because it is very hot in the summer, cold in the winter, and windy most of the time. There is a shopping complex near us that opened near by with an Albertson's which made it easier for food shopping. Our area has lots of parks and sidewalks when it is nice enough to walk outside. They are building a shopping center near Red Rock Casino, I heard. Good luck in house hunting.

As had been pointed out it is not a great walking town. There are a couple of possibilities though. The Whole Food area Chalrleston and Fort Apache has a few homes in Queensridge Fairways town houses. They go around 1500 to 1700. Two available at the moment. There are a couple in Pecole Ranch at around that same price range. Little older there.

There are also a couple of gated places with pools etc in the 2500 to 3000 range.

I think that is it for core Summerlin...oh by the way...none of those places are actually in Summerlin.

There is also a somewhat earthier neighborhood at Buffalo and Lake Mead where you can walk to most stuff. And a good part of that neighborhood is actually in Summerlin. You get the two best wine food restaurants in town off the strip and a couple of others.

Again though thiis is not a walking town. You will find out that part of the year even a half mile is a challenge.

Oh, the Summer!! Almost forgot about it. We need count that in, of course.
"not walkable" = we are beginning to understand that.

Thank you for all the suggestions. This will help us narrow down our search.
We'll check into "earthier neighborhood at Buffalo and Lake Mead" and "Paseo neighborhood."

Great Help!

I keep forgetting about Peccole Ranch. That is a nice area. Wish I had a house there backed onto the park/trail. Actually would prefer one overlooking the Pueblos trail since I can't afford one on a lake at Desert Shores.

The weather does make it hard to do much walking here unless you are in very good shape, but the weather isn't the only reason that it isn't a walking town...it's the distances and the traffic. Unless you're from a big western city it's hard to grasp how spread out this city is. Besides, crossing our seven lane streets on foot is like playing automobile roulette.

I am always a little careful about walking. Europeans often have an entirely different conception. My sister has a very nice home north of London...But she literally lives on the high street. Pops out of her house..Forty feet down a mountain goat sidewalk and she is there. We simply don't have places like that.

Just sold a house in Taos Estates...they turned down the one on the wash for one that backs to Cielo Vista. Both very nice pool homes. Around 400K though the one on the ravine was close to perfect and the other needed 50K. The one on the ravine had an elevator!
