What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Hayward

What is unique is the culture of the neighborhood and the people in the neighborhood make it unique. The restaurant is nice

Near freeways, stores, city center, public transportation. Near US Bank and Foodmaxx. Close to other family living in the area. Close to big cities and local sports, arts and culture.

its a nice neighborhood , close to public transit if you need it, there's nothing really unique about it

Right behind the house is a Green Belt Parkway Nature Preserve so we have no rear human neighbors, but countless deer, bobcats, raccoons an occasional mountain lion and amazing trails to hike within few feet.

I like the parks near us. I also like that a school is walking distance. I like having a gas station nearby as well and hills near us.

We love going to the park that's a block away from our house! Very nice and you can walk your pets there:)
