This post was created in partnership with NTS Development, but all opinions are my own.
It’s been a while since I’ve been apartment-hunting, but recently, The Grove at Swift Creek Apartments invited me to come check out their property. I jumped at the chance! It was the perfect excuse for a girls’ day out with Ellie and Layla! Just add a pool, snacks, and playtime and you’ll have Layla’s best day ever. So basically, yes, it was the best day ever.
The Grove at Swift Creek Apartments
We started our day off at the Community Center, and of course Layla spotted the pool in about 2.5 seconds. Mama on the other hand first spotted the gourmet coffee bar fully stocked with Starbucks. (Yes, these days I’m a walking “but first, coffee” meme. ?)
I got about two sips in before Layla started dragging me by the hand to the pool area! But this sitting area, y’all. It’s beautiful and so chic. And there are also fresh baked cookies. Between the coffee, free wifi, and the chocolate and peanut butter cookies, I could just spend all my time right here. ?(Apparently the macadamia nut ones are also bomb. My sister RAVED about them!)
With coffee in hand, we hit the pool! Of course Layla jumped right in! I swear she feels no cold when it comes to pools! Can anyone else relate?! Instead, I dipped my legs in and enjoyed lounging on the lounge chairs!
I couldn’t get over how picturesque the pool area is. The landscaping is so beautiful. It truly feels like a little retreat!
After some fun in the sun, we were ready to relax in one of the apartments! The two bedroom we visited is so spacious. It has a large family room, dining area, galley-style kitchen, eat-in breakfast area, and two large bedrooms with walk-in closets and separate bathrooms!
How did they know I’m addicted to La Croix?!
I also loved the amount of light in the apartment! The bedrooms and the family room all have large windows that allow the light to pour in!
Another feature I can 100% get behind? Laundry rooms with full size washers and dryers in every apartment. Praise, right?! ??
Also, the patio, y’all. ? This is the perfect spot to relax at the end of the day with a glass of wine!
Once the girls were well-rested again, we hit up the outdoor kitchen! It has several outdoor grills, tables with chairs and umbrellas, and outdoor couch seating! It’s the perfect spot to grill out with the family or host a fun gathering with friends! There are also built-in corn hole boards adjacent to the patio! Hello, outdoor entertaining heaven!

We were pretty wiped by the end of our big girls’ day! But for those of y’all who want to get active, The Grove at Swift Creek also has outdoor tennis courts, a 24 hour fitness center, and walking trails through the woods!
While we were packing up, Layla was already asking when we were coming back. She was 100% ready to move in, y’all!! And truly, I can’t blame her. Along with the wonderful amenities on-site, there are tons of restaurants, shopping, and entertainment nearby! Y’all know I had to scope out where the closest Target is! ?(It’s only a few minutes drive along with Kohl’s, Old Navy, and Ulta too!)
If you’re apartment-hunting in the Richmond area, I cannot recommend The Grove at Swift Creek highly enough! Be sure to sure to mention BY LAUREN M, and you’ll get $200 off your first month’s rent!
