What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fairhope

Three minute drive from Walmart and Aldi. Three minutes for my husband to go to work. 7 minutes to the kids schools.

I like that it's a small neighborhood and very kid friendly. Everyone knows everyone. Downtown is five minutes away.

We have a pond that the kids can fish in. We are only a five minute drive or 10 minute bike ride to the grocery stores.

Great pedestrian streets good for walking, local park which is great for pets, beautiful scenic views.

I really like that its quiet here and that you feel safe walking your dog. My favorite restaurant is Billees and its right next door to my house. My family enjoys going to the bay.
