Residents of the Enclave Apartments have a front row seat to Super Bowl XLV, the complex is a stone's throw from Cowboys Stadium.

Ruben Garcia's Super Bowl party will have a flat screen TV, barbeque, and sounds from the actual game. That's because Garcia lives a football field away from Cowboy Stadium, where the big game will be played.

"If they open the dome here, we'll be able to hear something out of it, and the roars pretty loud," Garcia said.

Garcia lives at The Enclave at Arlington. He's been watching the setup for the Super Bowl from his door.

"I used to live right around the corner, right here on 305, and now I moved right here, so I have front row seats, " Garcia said.

Melissa Wilkins manages the property and said Super Bowl fans have asked about possible vacancies.

"We do offer three month leases, if people are interested, we have had several requests," Wilkins said.

Wilkins said some Cowboys season ticket holders that live out of town do rent units at the complex for the whole year.

"We have people from out of state, as far as Arizona, that do rent and come and stay for the weekends and go to the games and do their lease year round so they do have a nice place to stay and go to the games," Wilkins said.

Wilkins said there are seven apartments available for rent, but parking spots are not for sale. As for residents and staff at the complex, they're hoping they can experience part of the Super Bowl from their porch.

"We've really just been enjoying the Cowboys being across the street and now the Super Bowl. It's been great," said Wilkins.
