What Renters Like and Dislike About Murrieta

Beautiful historical home and walkable to local business with distinct charatistics and very convenient

There's a Nearby grocery store and restaurants. gas station. It's nearby a park for kids to play and get wet at the park.

Several parks within a five to ten minute walk. Within 5-7 minutes we have a handful of unique and family owned restaurants

Nothing different from our Neighborhood. The public transportation is on our doorstep, the grocery shops are fairly close by. There are restaurants nearby as well. The schools are within walking distance as well. Lovely neighborhood to live in

It's mostly well-maintained. The majority of the people living here are nice, friendly, and responsible. It's a safe, nice place for families.

I like it's location I position to places I find important. My job is here, my family are here, my friends are here, my school is hear, etc. Good food and shopping
