I found an apartment! - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  My daughter and I finally decided on an apartment and we start moving Friday, February 7th!  It's a 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment in a very large complex with lots of amenities!  The photo above is the large pool and the Jacuzzi. As you can see the Jacuzzi is the size of a small swimming pool!  There are also two other pools on the property. It also has numerous tennis courts, a basketball court, volleyball, a billiard room with a pool table and a huge gym. They even have a dry cleaners there!  I think it's going to feel like we are living in a resort.

It's only about 5 minutes away from my current apartment and it's closer to the freeway that I take to work. In fact I drive by this apartment complex every morning on my way to work!  I'll be now living in San Jose and not Campbell but I'll still be really close to cute little downtown Campbell where I always seem to be hanging out lately!

The apartment unit itself looks small but it's about the same sq. footage that I have now so I'm hoping once I get my furniture in there it will feel bigger.  The apartment complex is 3 stories high and we're on the ground level at the far end of the pool above.  The second and third levels have gas fireplaces and it would have been nice to have that but we really liked the location of the one we chose the best. We'll have more wall space without the fireplace too so that's a plus! 

We will have a patio but it's much smaller than what I have now.  The dining room is right when you walk in and it's really small so I'm not sure my dining room set will work but I'm going to move it and if it doesn't work I'll sell it and find a smaller table.

The gym looks out over the pool so I can run on the treadmill and have a view. This photo above which I took right after we signed the lease was taken near the gym.  They also offer free tennis lessons to the tenants. I haven't played tennis in years but I'm looking forward to that!

I can't believe we will be moving in about 1 week! I'm excited!

Well it really sounds like a resort - and fabulous too -
It's funny you mention the fireplace because my living room is super tiny and I was thinking the same thought today - if it weren't there.....
Happy for you :)
Oh and thanks for the party lol

How fun to read the excitement in your voice, Cindy. Isn't it amazing how things that seem so grim can be replaced with something joyful? Talking about a disappointment, a friend today told me that when prayers aren't answered the way we would like, we have no idea (or capacity to understand)what we've been spared. Such a lovely thought. And here you are, sounding so happy and excited and optimistic! Wonderful! My best wishes to you, and thank you for hosting! ~Zuni

Congratulations of finding such a great place to live, I think it will feel like you're living in two world - one when you are on the motorway heading to work and the other when you drive into your holiday resort - What a lovely combination.

I am so happy for you!!! It looks really beautiful and I think you are going to love it. Maybe like it even more especially if the management is nice. I would choose the first floor too near the pool oh yes!!! And you can buy an electric fireplace or use a faux. Best wishes.
