I’ve been able to call Lubbock home two different times in my life. I’ve shared some about our experience the second time and how we found our home (now newly remodeled…yeah!) thanks to Lubbock realtor Tara Newton. But the first time I lived here, it was in an apartment complex with my sister.
The place we chose to call home for those two years? Wyndham Apartments. Lubbock definitely doesn’t lack for apartment complexes, and there are some really great ones out there, among them the Wyndham.
Here’s a quick list of why we loved living at the Wyndham for the two years that we did:
- great facilities: our apartment had great carpet, large windows, large rooms, and fairly updated appliances. Everything was really clean, and we loved the amount of space we had. We were on the second floor, so our balcony area wasn’t quite as large as the people who had a first story apartment, but we loved the amount of storage we had and our fireplace.
- the amenities: The Wyndham’s property includes a pool and patio area, a grill for residents to use, a lobby with a computer and printer, a work-out room, and a tanning bed. While the work-out room and the pool are not huge, they are pretty nice, and they’re FREE.
- super friendly staff: one of the reasons we loved living at the Wyndham so much is that the staff was incredibly friendly. Any time we went through the office to get our mail or use the tanning bed, they were always around to chat with and had something nice to say. They also try really hard to do things that help the other residents get to know one another, and we met some really great people through them. Kami Shore, the apartment manager, was always helpful when we had a question or need for her.
- maintenance: The maintenance staff are incredible. We didn’t turn in a ton of work orders, but every time we did, they were fixed almost immediately. They went above and beyond to help meet our needs. One time my sister and I thought it would be smart to turn our thermostat off when we went away for a few days during Christmas break (we were trying to save money). When we happened to mention what we had done to our dad, we got a huge lecture about how that was probably one of the least intelligent things we could do. Thankfully, the staff at the Wyndham graciously went into our apartment and turned it on for us.
- neighbors: We met some really great people living at the Wyndham. Our neighbors were so incredibly kind. One man who lived across from us even had a habit of always taking our trash for us! The staff also live on the Wyndham property, so they feel so much more like community members rather than managers. It’s great.
- location: My sister didn’t life that she had a bit of a drive to get to Tech, but we loved that we were so close to central Lubbock. We were within minutes of the mall, movies, and lots of restaurants.
- gated property: this was probably the biggest reason we chose the Wyndham. Although its located in a pretty safe area, we loved the added feeling of protection we got from the gate, especially since it was just the two of us.
- price: I will admit that the Wyndham is not as cheap as some of the other apartment complexes you could live in Lubbock. But, for the total package: a gated property, nice apartments, great amenities, and super friendly staff, it is one of the best deals around.
One of the reasons they Wyndham stays so great is that they’re constantly updating their property. During the two years I lived there, they brought in new lighting fixtures and blinds that really helped things look even better. They just added a pet park for members who have animals, just got in new work-out equipment, and will be resurfacing their pool this winter. They always keep things looking and working great!
In fact, so many people agree that it’s a great place to call home, it just won an award for Best Community from the Lubbock Avalanche Journal.
