Marines who are preparing for a permanent change of station to Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, might be trolling Craigslist for housing.
Well, this listing might have everything you’re looking for — or perhaps everything you’re hoping to escape.
On July 20, a Craigslist user posted a one-bedroom rental that would be available in two weeks. The “lovely” 225 square foot space is located in a “gated community with 24-hour private security,” the advertisement states. Rent is $1,000 per month, and can be conveniently paid “on the 1st or split between the 1st and 15th with automatic withdrawal.”
There are not only free laundry facilities and gym memberships, but also running trails with “motivation specialists” to “encourage” runners.
There’s a courtesy wake-up service “at or around 0530” and lawn care is provided biweekly. And while there is no kitchen in the living space, an additional $250 per month will provide the new renter with a “reasonable amount of food” at nearby facilities.
Despite the amenities, the housing does come with a number of restrictions, the poster warns.
“No resident may affix anything to the walls with the use of nails, screws, tape, or (apparently) railroad spikes,” the ad states. Although it’s not immediately clear how it was determined that railroad spikes should not be used to affix items to the walls.
Alcohol is also limited to one six-pack. There can be no overnight visitors and arguing with the “security service or wake up service” is not advised.
