What to Look for in a Beach Apartment

Staff Writer · Feb 19, 2010

When searching for the best beach apartment, there are a few key elements to look for. Location, easy access, and safety are all important factors to keep in mind when locating the best beach apartment.

Location

When choosing a location to rent, keep in mind that location is everything. You would want something that is easy to get to. The location of the apartment complex is also important. When looking at a unit, walk down to the beach. See what the section of beach looks like in front of the complex. Is the beach clean and litter-free? Is the water clear? These are things to look at when selection the location of a beach front apartment.

Access to the Water

Another option would be the easiness of beach access. Can you walk down the outer steps and arrive easily on the beachfront? Is the section of beach a popular public section of water? Is the area leading to the beach free of clutter and storage? These are important questions to ask yourself.

Safety of the Area

This is probably the most important thing to keep in mind. Is the beachfront area well-lit? Is it an open walk, with few distractions? Knowing your surroundings is important when searching for a beach apartment. What kind of neighborhood is the apartment located in? If you are new to the area, the local police department should be helpful in ensuring the selection of a quiet, low-crime neighborhood.

Safety of the Apartment

Making sure the outside and surrounding areas of the apartment are important, but make sure the inside is safe as well. Well installed locks, exterior porch lights, and a fire escape are important things to look for as well. Knowing your neighbors, and the general atmosphere of the unit is good way to know what to expect as a tenant.

These are just a few tips when scoping out the perfect beach apartment. While other factors do contribute to the selection, such as price, deposit and utilities, making sure you check out all aspects of the apartment is important for a satisfying experience.
