Picking the Right Apartment

You know it's important to do your research when searching for a place to live, but sometimes it can be hard to know where to start. Here are a few things you’ll want to know about an apartment before you consider signing a lease.

Furnished or Unfurnished

Some apartment complexes include furniture in the lease of your apartment. Not having to buy and move your own furniture can be convenient, but fully furnished apartments can also be more expensive.

Home furnishings aren’t a one size fits all. We do not offer furnished apartments at Summit on Nellis as we want to give you the freedom to create the look and feel of your home and design it to meet your specific needs.

Apartment Amenities

It’s important to consider what amenities are available in your individual unit. Most apartments will provide a refrigerator and an oven, but they don’t always provide a microwave, washer, or dryer. You’ll also want to consider the amount of storage space in the unit and if it will meet your needs.

At Summit on Nellis, all of our units have fully equipped kitchens along with a full-size washer and dryer.

Pet Policy

Whether you are a pet lover or prefer to keep your distance, it is so important to be aware of your apartment’s pet policy! Some apartments in East Las Vegas only allow certain breeds or sizes of animals, some require a pet deposit or pet rent, and some do not allow them at all.

Give us a call to learn more about our Pet Policy!

When living in Las Vegas, having proper security measures at your apartment complex is important for your safety and peace of mind. You’ll want to ask the community manager if the community is gated, if access to hallways is restricted to key holders, about lighting at night, and about their security cameras.

Summit on Nellis is a gated community, so you never have to worry about strangers roaming the property! Our property is well-lit and features security cameras in community areas. We also offer secured garage parking for additional peace of mind.

Community Amenities

Every apartment complex in East Vegas is going to have different amenities. Communities with luxury amenities will often charge more for rent so you need to decide which amenities are important for you and your lifestyle. During the hot Nevada Summers, it’s nice to have a pool to cool off in. If you have a pet, pet-friendly areas in the community can be a great help. Apartments may also offer clubhouses, fitness centers, sports courts, picnic areas, playgrounds, and more.

Swimming Pool

Work on your tan or practice your swimming skills at our gorgeous pool.

Detached Garages

Keep your car cool and protected from the elements in one of our detached garages.


Whether you have children of your own or friends that come to visit, our playground is the perfect place to make some fun memories.
