There’s no question that Dallas can be a very hot place to live for several months out of the year. For many renters, a high-quality pool ranks near the top of their apartment amenity must-haves. Looking to relocate before the summer heat kicks in? Here are Dallas-area apartment communities with some of the most relaxing, resort-style pools.
Luxury is the name of the game at these Preston Hollow apartments. From the pool and community fire pit to the upscale interiors, life at Hanover Midtown Park feels more like a luxurious spa than an apartment community. You can watch a movie in the media room with stadium-style seating or work out at the 24-hour gym. You’ll be proud to invite friends to hang out in your apartment, thanks to features like frameless cabinets and spa-inspired bathrooms.
Everything you need for the good life is close at hand in these mixed-use apartments in Oak Lawn. Relax by the luxurious pool under the palm trees. Afterward, you can get your hair done at the onsite salon or take a walk to a nearby restaurant. End your day in the beautiful setting of these well-maintained apartments, with features like granite countertops and stainless steel appliances.
Close to your favorite places in downtown Dallas, Deep Ellum, and Lower Greenville, these newly-constructed apartments have great features for pet owners — including a dog park on site and an even larger one in nearby Deep Ellum. The pool has great city views, grills and a fire pit for an ultimate relaxation station. As the name suggests, you can even walk to the Dallas Farmers Market. Whatever the weather, you’ll love the laidback atmosphere at this apartment community.
Uptown is widely known as one of the most exciting neighborhoods in Dallas. All the nightlife and inventive bistros in the neighborhood provide endless options for socializing and entertainment. For days you want to hang out at home, Glass House by Windsor has an upscale infinity edge pool and an amenity deck, the perfect hangout spot for hot summer nights. The new high-rise apartment building is decked out with all the features you could want, from floor-to-ceiling windows to LEED environmental certification.
This beautiful, European-inspired community is a magnet for Dallas’ young, successful professionals and SMU students alike. The pool area reminds you of an upscale resort and is the centerpiece of the property grounds. In fact, the pool itself is such a popular hangout spot that the community has started limiting the number of guests allowed so residents can use it. The location in the heart of Uptown provides easy access to the Katy Trail for jogging and biking. Gables Villa Rosa recently added a bar on the ground level so renters never need to leave home for the party.
Business is booming in Plano. When you want to have a short commute to all the corporate jobs and the upscale shopping and restaurants at Legacy West and nearby Frisco, The Huntington is a brand-new apartment community just for you. You’ll find other professionals lounging at the European-inspired pool and cabana area. More like a high-end hotel than an apartment complex, this is the kind of place with all the upscale features you want like gourmet kitchens inspired by custom homes and Nest thermostats.
Downtown Fort Worth is a popular place to live in the North Texas area, offering a completely different vibe than downtown Dallas. A bit slower paced but equally fun, you’ll love the unpretentious welcome you’ll find here. Relax and chill out by the pool and hot tub at this sophisticated, luxury apartment community. Walk to nearby hangout spots like Sundance Square or the shops at West 7th. You’re also near the Trinity Trails, which makes this the perfect spot for enjoying an active lifestyle.
You can find the right place to call home anywhere in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. But when you choose a community with a great pool and lounge area, your new home also becomes your favorite summer hangout.
