I agree with the answers below but wanted to ad that safety is also a personal issue. Do not make yourself a target. Be aware of your surroundings, do not leave valuables in your car, etc.

It also is a Guard Gated community, but that in itself does not always mean it is safer than somplace else.

Search crime websites stats etc to make yourself more informed. Talking to the neigbors in the area also may help you as well.

A lot of folks do like the Painted Desert Golf Course community located in the Northwest part of Las Vegas off Ann Rd zip code 89149

Just north of Ann Road on the west side of the interstate you can see how close Painted Desert is nearby shopping.

Here is a metro map that may help

Painted Desert is a nice, desirable area. "Safety" is a relative term; check the LVMPD website for crime stats and use your common sense and intuition regardless of where you buy.

Check out the Trulia Crime Map:!clark-nv/13/36.12682,-115.1779…

Looks super green to me. Additional security is always recommended... alarms, locking doors, gates, motion lights, etc.

I would suggest increasing your level of safety by installing an alarm system, no matter what part of Las Vegas I lived in.
