Why Living in Apartments with a Pool is Fun

Oct 20th, 2012

All apartments are not created equal and no matter the time of year, you can always enjoy apartments with pools because AMLI’s pools have an unlimited number of uses. Whether it’s a summertime barbecue by the pool or a gathering to tip toes in the heated pool in the winter, we wanted to share are a few advantages to living with a pool in your apartment complex: 1. Have a party! Don’t let the hot summer discourage you from enjoying the sun, especially when it’s a warm summer in Texas. Instead, cool off with friends and family for a cookout at the pool in your apartment community. Customize your party with a few decorations and light Citronella candles to keep the mosquitoes away. Stock the pool with lots of floats, if allowed, to get guests in the water and relaxed in the sun. To give the event your own chic touch, provide guests with some luxury towels draped over the chairs to tie everything together. For even more fun, make your own cocktail that goes along with party theme. Hosting a Hawaiian luau? The Hula Coola recipe from Martha Stewart is the perfect beverage to accompany the party. Feeling more like a fiesta? The Strawberry Margarita recipe from Food Network should do the trick. The pool in this apartment community features a spa plaza with open air cabanas and barbecue grills. So fun! 2. Enjoy a heated pool in winter! There’s no need to wait until summer to have a pool party, right? Right! Kick off the changing of a new season by hosting a fall pool party at the heated pool in your apartment community (if available). It may sound a bit unusual at first but trust us, it’s something completely unique that your guests will never forget. Heated pools make for a relaxing environment for parties as well as can be an added way to exercise year round. If you are hosting a party at your heated pool this fall, make sure you have robes for your guests to keep warm when they get out of the water. If the party stays outside longer, serve up a warm treat such as the Cinnamon Toast cocktail from And be sure to check out the heated, resort-style pool and hot tub in Denver at AMLI Arista! 3. Relax in the hot tub! Nothing works out those sore muscles or relaxes away the stress better than an hour or two in your apartment community’s hot tub. And after a tough workout at one of AMLI’s state-of-the-art fitness centers, like the two 24-hour fitness centers at our Chicago AMLI at St. Charles, the pool and sun deck can come in handy. For those long days of balancing work and life, you can also get away and enjoy some me-time in your apartment’s hot tub, too. We can already hear you sighing “ahhhhhhh!” 4. The best part – no maintenance! No need to clean out leaves from the pool in fall or flowers in spring because the definition of fun means never having to maintain your AMLI apartment pool. Of course you’ll want to be respectful of your neighbors and to your complex by abiding by the pool rules set in place, but you enjoy your apartment pool year round without having to fix or clean a thing.
