Welcome to the Magic Valley — the portion of south-central Idaho where your new home, Twin Falls is located. Somewhere between its natural beauty, decent economy and low cost of living certainly lies some magic, so lets get started on your apartment search so you can get out there and find it.
Twin Falls is generally considered the premier community of the region. A large population increase has brought in a lot of new development, and thankfully the Twin Falls builders have adequately stepped up to prevent rent from skyrocketing. Apartments for rent in the city have remained inexpensive despite all the development, so you’ll be sure to find some great deals on inexpensive apartments.
When you’re not enjoying all that the city has to offer in terms of shopping, dining and entertainment, you’ll likely be enjoying the “magic” of the surrounding area. From the Snake River Canyon to the incredibly beautiful nearby waterfalls, including Shoshone Falls, which is taller than Niagara Falls, your backyard will look mighty pretty. Additionally, mountains and national parks are all within a day’s drive. If you’re a fan of experiencing all nature has to offer, welcome to paradise.
But enough nature, let’s talk man-made neighborhoods. Most areas of Twin Falls are considered excellent. The location of your apartment will largely be determined by what type of rental you’re looking for.
North of town, near the Blue Lakes Country Club, you’ll find a lot of the new developments. Several of the apartment and condominium complexes in this area offer amenities such as gyms and clubhouses. This is also where you’ll find the best studio apartments for rent. Two bedrooms in these buildings generally go for $500-$700 per month.
Just west of the city center, near the College of Southern Idaho’s campus, you’ll find some older, more established apartment rentals. Check this area out if you’re looking for a younger vibe, or if you’re interested in short-term leases. Two bedrooms here generally cost about the same as in the northern area of town.
The areas south of the city center tend to be dominated by homeowners. These neighborhoods are more established and have a bit more of a suburban feel. Houses in this area generally range from $700 to $1000.
As an outdoorsy city, finding a pet friendly apartment shouldn’t be too difficult in Twin Falls. However, some landlords may have limitations on the number or size of pets, or require a nominal additional pet deposit. Come prepared to pay if you’re bringing along a furry friend.
So welcome to Twin Falls! Enjoy all the magic that the Magic Valley has to offer!
