Turning a Rental into a Home

When you’re looking for a new home there are so many options. Do you rent or do you buy? What style of home do you look for? What layout? These questions and more might be flooding through your head. South Pointe Apartments and Homes we have beautiful rentals that will make a wonderful home. Still not sure about a rental house? Well here’s some great ways to turn a rental house into a welcoming home.

One of the great things about a rental is it’s turn key. You can walk in with your boxes and boom you’re home and that’s when the real fun starts. One of the easiest ways to make your rental house feel like home is to customize it. Adding your personal style to the home will pull your space together and make it feel warm and inviting. Some quick things you can add right away to make a rental feel more like a home are: 

Drapes – rental window coverings are often pretty standard so add a little extra something with drapes and curtains in your style.

Rugs – area and throw rugs are great for adding a pop of color and an extra layer of coziness to your home.

Art and photos – Let your personal style shine through with art and photographs. Maybe you want a gallery wall or you have a big bold piece of art to feature. Let these pieces transform the space from just a house to your home. To prevent damage to your walls, use command strips and alternative hanging methods.

Plants – If you’re a plant person, live plants can really brighten up your living space. If plants aren’t your thing grab some fresh flowers or even a fake plant (we won’t judge).

Another great way to feel at home in your rental house is to get to know your neighborhood and surrounding areas. By making friends, finding local hangouts and enjoying all of the amenities South Pointe has to offer, you’ll feel at home in no time. Here are some of the great things our community and the surrounding area has to offer!  

South Pointe Apartments and Homes – Within our rental community you will be greeted with an olympic sized pool, a 24 hour fitness center, a community clubhouse, a community garden, grill and picnic areas, sand volleyball court and pet park just to name a few. 

Foley, AL – Heading outside the community you will find even more to do! Within driving distance of South Pointe you have the Gulf Shores beaches, nature preserves, gardens, museums, exhibits and even a zoo! Foley is also home to lots of delicious restaurants and some great shopping.

What Our Residents Have To Say

My boyfriend and I applied for a South Pointe home in the Summer of 2020. Turns out, someone applied for the same house about 30 minutes ahead of us! Sarah and the office staff were very helpful, and processed our application and put it down on the next available house. Me and my boyfriend LOVE the house we live in. We have lived here since August, and have not had a single issue. The houses and neighborhood are both really quiet and kept so clean! I love not having to cut my own grass! They are also pet friendly (which is hard to find). They even plan fun and safe events for neighbors to come together (while practicing social distancing), and enjoy the neighborhood. I can’t wait for it to warm back up so we can enjoy the pool and other great things offered while living here. We plan to stay here for quite some time!

I promised my roommate if we made it through hurricane Sally and got everything back to normal, I’d 5-star this place. The constant updates when there was news, the free meals, and quick clean up . Really this would have been a nightmare without this team. I will never forget their kindness.

Moved to Foley about 7 months ago and decided to lease a house at South Point Apartments & Homes. My husband and I couldn’t be happier with our choice. The office staff and maintenance crew are excellent! The location is WONDERFUL! Far enough from the beach to escape that traffic yet just a 15 – 20 minute drive when the ocean ” calls “.After owning for most of our life it’s wonderful to not have any upkeep or yard maintenance as it’s all provided. The saltwater pool, nice clubhouse, dog park and wooded areas all provide nice amenities that are well cared for.

I have lived here at South Pointe apartments for almost 3 years. It is the best community and apartment complex I have ever lived in. Not only is it quiet, you are surrounded by trees and other beautiful landscapes. Maintenance is friendly, quick and I trust them to be in my place when I am not. The office is courteous and very helpful (they also love to spoil your pups with treats anytime they see them!) I’m very excited to renew my lease for the fourth time since moving to the area. You won’t find the charm and seclusion in any other complex in Foley.

I am beyond impressed with my experience living in the South Pointe Apartment Home community! The ladies in the office go above and beyond in making sure tenants are comfortable and satisfied with their homes. The genuine care and understanding of the staff is something I have never experienced while living in previous apartments. Not to mention the exceptionally well-kept property; from the luscious green grass and the beautiful trees that create the perfect amount of sunshine and shade. The community amenities are spectacular as well; the olympic size saltwater pool, the grassy green fenced in dog park, multiple sidewalks, the well-kept fitness center and even a community garden. To top it off, all the neighbors I have met have been extremely friendly and kind, which is just icing on the cake. South Pointe Apartments stand apart from other apartments in the area; from the beautiful landscape and calm serenity, to the superb amenities and the friendly, caring staff always willing to help. I recommend South Pointe Apartments to anyone looking for a place that they can truly call home.
