With an off-base apartment, you won't need to worry about waiting lists for base housing. You'll also enjoy more flexibility to choose an apartment with features and amenities that match your monthly budget. Speaking of amenities, many of the apartments near the base in Jacksonville offer luxury perks (that are included with the monthly rent!) like swimming pools, fitness centers, dog parks, and outdoor kitchens. Depending on your monthly rent, you might find that you have leftover money from your housing allowance each month that can help pay other bills such as utilities or cable/internet. Apartments offer you the flexibility to choose a level of luxury that meets your lifestyle and budget, without worrying about a waiting list!
