Searching for your new apartment was fun and you probably had a list of must-have amenities, right? Your list probably included something like a pool, gym, and pet-friendly. But did you know that there are some amenities that stretch beyond a sparkling pool or well-equipped gymnasium?

Apartment communities provide attractive neighborhood amenities, like a pool, gym, pet park, tennis court, laundry facility, online bill pay, etc., and that’s why renters love them. However, some communities are providing just a little bit more. See what jaw-dropping amenities are out there that you could have at your next apartment:

Putting Green

Wouldn’t it be fun to live where you play golf? Some apartment communities actually have a putting green as an amenity for residents. Now you probably need to bring your own gear to the green, but I’m sure for the avid golfer and enthusiast that won’t be a problem – not one bit.

Wine Cellar

Yes! Wine cellars are a unique amenity offered by apartment communities.  The wine cellars are climate-controlled and a perfect spot to get the residents together for a little wine and cheese tasting.

Valet Dry Cleaning

Anyone who frequents a professional cleaners knows how expensive it can get. It becomes a chore having to run out every week to drop off your clothes, and then having to go back to pick them up. Imagine having your own valet dry cleaners right in your apartment community? Well, that’s the reality of some communities! You’ll never have to go out of your way again to pick up your pant suit or slacks.

Backyard Beach Access

Now if I had this, I would never leave my apartment community on the weekends again. Many coastal communities are right on the beach, with their own beach access off the terrace! How cool is that?

Sky Lounge

This is definitely an amenity you would find in an apartment community downtown.  A sky lounge will have ample seating for residents and their guests, with exceptional views of the city skyline.  Depending on the community, you may find billiards, a fireplace, kitchen with bar, coffee shop, and game room at the sky lounge too.

Movie Theater

Need a free night out? Treat yourself to some popcorn and candy at the movie theater in your apartment community.  Check out the community bulletin for special premier showings and family movie nights.

Indoor Basketball Court

Having an indoor basketball court is great for those rainy days. Grab a friend for a little one-on-one hoops session or go big with a friendly game with your neighbors.
