I lived at Desert Shadows for 6 months, and I had no complaints whatsoever. Anytime you would report a maintenance problem on the website, they'd be at your apartment the very next day repairing whatever it was that needed to be repaired. The apartments are very nice and spacious. The pool and fitness center are 24 hours which was great for my time schedule. Security was always walking around so I felt safe. The only thing that was a bad choice on our part was to live on the 3rd floor. Do not want to attempt that in Vegas heat during the summer!
