What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Huntington Beach

I love the people who live near me. I know the area well and like all the places that I go to to shop.

I only go out grocery shopping or visit family in different city other then that I don't go out anywhere near here or when I do is to go buy fast food

It is close to the beach. It is a quiet neighborhood. Neighbors care about the appearance of their homes.

The neighbors are friendly, respect each others privacy, some of my neighbors are Firemen and some are Policemen.

The beaches are Beautiful with perfect skies. I love the restaurants and people. Food is very tastey.

Stores are in the area and some restaurants greyhound bus is here the rent is not foolish but most of all it's in Abad area but nothing has happened since I be been here
