    User,

    This is an example of a lower 2 bed unit.

    http://www.trulia.com/rental/3122574883-7255-W-Sunset-Rd-1008-Las-Vegas-NV-89113#photo-1

    The address to search for is 7255 W. Sunset LV 89113. Community name is Tuscano.

    Private message me and I will send you the managers name he will normally have a handle on what is available for rent and may not be on internet. As with anything management makes a huge difference and we have a very good one IMHO.

    Good luck in your search.

    Spoke too soon, my brother's scooter was stolen from his parking spot again. This time they cut right through the chain. Per usual gates and roaming security as just a false sense of security.

    I find it very interesting when someone who wants to move to Vegas, says they want to be near the strip. All I have to say to that notion is ARE YOU CRAZY????!!!! OR WHAT
    The areas around the strip are older and run down. Unless you move into one of the high rises and the HOA dues on those are crazy high.
    The crime rate is higher in the strip area, as well as vehicle accidents.
    So many folks with the mind set of wanting to be close to the strip because of the excitement and gaming, don't realize that there is plenty of excitement and gaming at off-strip casinos too.
    If a person wants to go to the strip it is right there within a short driving distance.
    There are many safe places to live in Vegas. Use your common sense and look at the neighborhood your considering. ask yourself the following questions. depending on the answers, you should get an idea of
    what you are looking at.
    1. Do the homes, or lower apartments have bars on the windows?
    2. Are there dysfunctional cars parked in driveways?
    3. Is there garbage thrown about in the streets and yards?
    4. Is there a major bus route stop?
    5. Is there an elementary school within walking distance?
    6. Is there a high school within walking distance?
    7. Is the neighborhood on the flight path for McCarren Airport?
    8. Is the neighborhood on the flight path for Nellis?
    9. Is there graffiti on any of the walls encompassing the community?
    10. What is the clientele like at the local McDonalds, subway, and hair salons?
    11. How many roads/highways give access to the community incase 1 gets closed?

    Depending on the answers you should be able to tell if a community is right for you. I personally don't want to live within walking distance to any schools, because I don't want the foot
    traffic of pre-teens and teens in my yard, scoping out my personal belongings. Or the thumping of loud car stereos of teenagers.
    I don't want to live in a flight path, as I enjoy quiet.
    A bus route is somewhat important, but I am far enough away from one as to not deal with the noise and smell of the buses.

    I would love to say the safest place in Vegas area is the Summerlin community. but, we too have been seeing incidences of burglaries of both home and autos lately. But, they are fewer and far between than
    other locations in Vegas. Southern Highlands is a very nice community too, the only draw back there is blue diamond road….. it is terrible.
    Centennial Hills area in the NW has some very nice pocket communities.

    I think the reason many people want to live around the strip is also because there's a lot of incorrect information out there. When DH and I started our search for a neighborhood, several people told us that we SHOULD live around the strip. Their reason? That the big casinos want to make tourists feel safe so they pay of more security and fund a bigger police presence. So if the tourists are safe, then the residents are probably safer too. It makes sense. But after doing plenty of reading online, we know that's not true and to look elsewhere for a place to live.
    So for us, moving to Vegas isn't about permanently submersing ourselves in the strip. Actually we don't want to do that at all - we really want to experience all of Vegas. I know the Strip well enough by now - I'm ready for a new adventure! But I can't speak for everyone, that's just me.
