The Desert Shores Community Association is a 3,351 unit master planned community located in the shadow of the foothills of northwest Las Vegas. This community was developed by RA Homes in 1988 and includes twenty-two different residential districts, with everything from condominiums to median priced housing and large custom homes behind private gates. All of the lakefront homes have direct access to the lakes and the option of private docks. The Association transitioned to homeowner control in November 1992.
Desert Shores encompasses 682 acres and features four man made lakes, a lagoon style swimming pool surrounded by a sand beach, palm trees and a picnic park with volleyball, basketball and playground facilities. The community docks provide paddleboating and fishing for the residents. The 2,100 square foot clubhouse, with terraces on the side of the main lake, is the site of many private parties and special community events. Being recreation-oriented, this community offers miles of walking and biking paths and the beach facility and paddleboats operate six days a week in the spring and summer, including holidays.
