If you're unsure of what amenities or features you are looking for in a new place, our website is the perfect place to start. Browsing through our quick search section on the right side of the page will give you an idea of the most frequently searched terms, including categories like smoke free apartments and student apartments. You can also search by categories like neighborhood, county, floor plans, landmarks, and schools in the area. This will help you find Clearwater apartments that are close to important locations in your daily routine, making it easier to commute and quickly get to where you need to go. You can even search for a specific zip code if you want to make sure you choose an apartment in a definite area.

In the advanced search section, you can filter for a number of amenities, options, and other apartment living aspects that will help you really narrow down your search before you make any in-person visits. For example, residents with a cat will be interested in selecting the pet policy tab and specifically checking the "cats" box. The apartment features tab will help you find Clearwater apartments with a range of features including a patio, walk-in closet, upgraded countertops, an alarm system, and much more. This can be helpful if you are not familiar with the types of amenities commonly offered by apartment communities. You can even search for a community that features green efforts like recycling, low energy lighting, and native landscaping.

Once you've narrowed down your favorite communities on our website, you can use the contact form to schedule an in-person visit. Before you head to your appointment, you should create a list of all the amenities you are looking for and discuss them with the leasing office during the tour. This can give you additional information and allow you to make clear comparisons between all the Clearwater apartments you visit. Ask the leasing office to give you a tour of community amenities like a resort-style pool, fitness center, and computer lab. Make sure you take good notes throughout the tour so you can refer back to them later before making a final decision.
