I started looking at apartments for southwest Las Vegas as soon as I found out that I was going to get the teaching position I had been working so hard for. I wanted to get settled in and use the summer to get used to the area, so I did not want to have to spend a lot of time looking for an apartment. It was going to be my son and myself, so I wanted to find a place where he would be happy as well. I knew that he would more concerned with the community features while I would be concerned with the layout of the apartment.
That is why I expected it to take much longer than it did for us to find the best apartment for us. It really is great too. He loves it because he has so much privacy there. The apartment has two floors to it, and he has the upstairs all to himself. There is a large bedroom, a humongous closet, and a large bathroom. The rest of the upstairs opens out into the main floor, where the living room is. That means that our living room ceilings are two stories tall!
As for the main floor, I also have a master bedroom, a master bath that has a garden tub, and a large walk in closet. There is also the dining room, living room and kitchen on the other side of the first floor. There is even a balcony that has a large storage section on one side. The best part though is that there is a third bathroom, right on the main floor. Considered a powder room, it has a toilet and sink, as well as a washer and dryer in the same area. My son is more excited about having a floor all to himself than anything else!
