What to Look for in a Luxury Apartment in Slidell and Covington

July 20, 2016

Fremaux-Pool-3-lrg.jpgA luxury apartment community should provide a comfortable home atmosphere as well as surrounding spaces and amenities that both make your life easier and more enjoyable. To help you better understand what to look for, here are five features and amenities that a luxury apartment should offer:

Resort-style Swimming Pool

With the brutal New Orleans temperatures this time of year, having the option to cool off in a pool is incredibly attractive, even more so if the pool is just steps from your front door. A saltwater pool is an added bonus as it's better for your skin and hair and won't discolor your bathing suit.

Another advantage to having a pool in your apartment community is that it provides an ideal place to get to know your neighbors. This is important if you're new to the area and want to feel more connected to your community.

State-of-the-art Fitness Center

Escaping to the gym is a great way to rid yourself of everyday stress, and if you can find an apartment community that features an on-site fitness center, you'll be more inclined to hit the gym on a regular basis. Plus, with the average gym membership costing between $40 and $50 per month, having a fitness center as part of your amenity package can help you maintain your budget.

In-home Washer and Dryer

Laundry can be one of the most daunting household tasks. However, if you can find an apartment that features an in-home washer and dryer, you'll save yourself the hassle of lugging your dirty clothes to the laundromat and wasting your precious time while waiting for all the loads to be completed.

Pet-friendly Community

If you can find a pet friendly apartment community that offers a leash-free, fenced in dog park, you'll be able to let your pet burn off some serious energy without having to constantly walk your dog. Some luxury apartment communities even offer a pet spa area, making it incredibly easy to keep your pup smelling fresh and clean.


Being able to store your car in a garage can greatly prolong the life of its engine and help  ensure your car starts when you return to it. Also, during extreme temperatures in the summer and winter months, being able to access your car in a covered garage can help you to avoid some of the harsh weather ailments.

While there are a number of apartment communities classified as “luxury,” be sure to take a careful look at the features and amenities offered, so you can find a community that adds everyday comfort and convenience to your lifestyle.
