What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Desert Hills

there are the neighbors are all friendly. there are lots of dog and walkers. love that we can walk to stores.

The waterfront and lots of little nooks coming off from the sidewalks to go down to the water. The views of the city and the mountains, and the mostly liberal mindset/environmentally positive mindset of folks here.

It is a bit of an upscale area. There are many good restaurants close by. I rarely go anywhere with other people.

the closeness to town is very convienant,many locla restarants and places to shop, many parks as well

There are lots of local restaurants that are not chains within walking distance. There is a nice park across the street.

Proximity to Alki Beach and Lincoln Park. Walkable community and great access to public transit. Lots of local restaurants and year round farmers market.
