Not all apartments in Athens are created equal, especially when it comes to the rental market for off-campus student housing. Why? Because not all rental companies in Athens take the same measures to ensure their student rentals have all the amenities you’d expect in a luxury apartment! It’s as if they’re trying to keep the classic dilapidated-college-apartment experience intact. Again – Why?
We’re different – Kleinpenny Rentals offers luxury, amenity-packed apartments and homes for rent in the best locations in Athens. It seems to us like university students are some of the people who deserve cool apartments the most! You’re being a scholar, employee, friend, family member, and probably more all at once. Is it too much to ask to not have to study in a noisy laundromat for 3 hours while you wash your sheets? Or for your walk to class to be short enough to make up for your oversleeping tendencies? We think not.
Must-Have Luxury Amenities are Key in KPR's Off-Campus Student Rentals
Obviously, one of the biggest factors for OU students renting apartments in Athens is being close to uptown – close to the bars, campus, all Court Street’s awesome restaurants, and convenience stores. It makes life easy and fun. But we don’t rest on our laurels when it comes to the locations of our rentals; just because you’re right uptown doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice a beautiful, updated space with all the features of home.
Here are some things you can look forward to by renting one of KPR’s luxury Athens apartments during your of-campus time at OU -
Whether it’s a four bedroom apartment, a studio rental, or 8-bedroom house, our kitchens feature beautiful cabinets, ceramic tile floors, newer appliances, and – most important of all – dishwashers.
Many of our uptown Athens apartments and rental homes have completely renovated bathrooms. That means instead of old vinyl floors and plastic tub surrounds, you get cast iron tubs, fully-tiled tub surrounds and tiled floors.
Spacious Living Rooms
We do our best to make the most of any size space, whether it’s one of our six bedroom houses for rent, or a cozy one bedroom apartment right off of Court Street. Sometimes, an apartment listing will use the term “bedroom” for something that is so small, almost anyone would get claustrophobic. Our living spaces and common rooms are spacious, and the bedrooms in our rental properties are all good size. In fact, some of them border on enormous.
Many of our apartments have historic hardwood floors throughout the living spaces. But we like something more comfy in the bedrooms. The only kinds of carpet you’ll see in KPR apartments is thick, super-plush, and free of stains and worn-down corners.
Energy-Efficient Air Conditioning
We live here, so we get it – air conditioning is pretty high up there on people’s lists of apartment must-haves. A lot of time, landlords get away with smashing a power-gobbling window AC in a room and saying the apartment is air conditioned. Our air conditioned rental units feature super-efficient mini-split systems – efficient in cooling and in power usage.
As a college student, is there anything better than being able to just do your laundry whenever you want and not have to lug a sock full of quarters and a full-to-bursting laundry basket up and down Stimson each week?
Something you definitely didn’t get in the dorms, and will sacrifice in a lot of other Court Street apartments, is outdoor space. But what about decks? Hot tubs? Spacious front porches, and even yards? Our uptown apartments feature spacious decks perfect for sipping morning coffee or having friends over for a few beers on a Friday. Even better, we have rental houses super-close to Court Street with yards. Corn hole and grilling out? Yes, please!
Off-Campus Parking Spots
Parking uptown is obnoxious, inconvenient, and nearly always results in a parking ticket or seven. KPR offers our tenants designated parking space rentals uptown. The perks of always having a private parking spot in this town cannot be understated. If you’ve previously rented an off-campus apartment at OU that hasn’t had parking options for tenants, you know what we’re talking about.
Kleinpenny Rentals: Luxury Apartments in Athens, Ohio
The apartment you rent for your time at Ohio University shouldn’t just be a dilapidated box you do homework and sleep in. True college luxury is apartments that let you live a full life – one with evening porch wine and views of uptown; one with the ability to have a bunch of friends come play corn hole, or have a game night in a kitchen and living space that’s big enough.
You shouldn’t have to budget time for laundry treks or hand wash sink loads of dishes after a big party. Luxury amenities aren’t about looking cool; they’re about making your life more convenient and less stressful, which means more time for school and for yourself. That’s where the real value is. Take a look at any one of our Athens rentals, and you’ll understand why we use the word “luxury” when we’re describing them. Curious?
