No Matter Your Situation, Downtown Probably Has a Rental for You

Nary a month goes by that a friend or a friend of a friend isn’t looking for a home or apartment to rent in Downtown Las Vegas. It’s not hard to find rentals in the city’s core, of course, but it is tough to find one that matches the particular criteria of an individual or family’s situation. Maybe you need a yard for your kids or pets. Maybe you need more bedrooms than a condo affords. Most of all, you want something that fits your budget. The good news is, there are still a variety of rental properties out there that can be nabbed for $1,100 or less, just under the median Las Vegas rental rate of $1190. We found a few to get you started:

912 Hassett

912 Hassett Ave. Basic, but cozy and nice.

First, we have a two-bedroom, two-bathroom house at 912 Hassett Ave. in the Southridge neighborhood. This 1,224-square-foot home is pretty basic, but does have real hardwood floors, new interior paint and a newly remodeled bathroom, and at $985 a month ($100 less for seniors or employed by Metro), it’s one of the better rental deals in the greater downtown area.

If you’re looking for a little more room, there’s a four-bedroom, three-bathroom house for rent at 2112 Van Patten Pl. in the neighboring Paradise Village tract. Again, nothing fancy here, but there is 1,574 square feet of space for only $1,100 a month, and a nice little covered patio and paved backyard to host cozy cocktail parties with views of the Stratosphere Tower.

2112 Van Patten Pl. Just like the Rush album, dude.

If space isn’t as much a priority as style and location, then you might want to check out what’s available at Juhl (pictured at top). The industrial-chic high-rise condominium development at 353 E. Bonneville Ave. has a number of rentals available, ranging from a 653-square-foot studio to a two-bedroom, two-bathroom townhouse. That studio rents for $1,050, which might seem high for the square footage, but it does afford access to all of Juhl’s amenities, including a fitness center, pool, rooftop courtyard, parking garage, and close proximity to both the 18b Arts District and Fremont East Entertainment District. Plus, there’s a slew of new retail businesses opening on Juhl’s street level, including restaurants, a waxing salon and a bar.

420 Beaumont

420 Beaumont St. Perfect for a “Three’s Company”-type situation.

Moving to the west side of the I-15, there’s a three-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom townhouse at 245 Jaded Iris Court (what does an iris experience to make it so jaded?) available for $1,100 a month. Located in the gated Village Paseo community just northwest of the Las Vegas Medical District, this 1,543-square-foot home features two stories, an attached garage and access to a community pool.

Finally, we have a two-bedroom, two-bathroom house for rent at 420 Beaumont St., just off Alta Drive. It’s basically a detached apartment, coming in at only 981 square feet, but it’s also only $895 a month, and the bedrooms are separated, so it may be an ideal option for roommates … or couples who don’t get along.
