What Renters Like and Dislike About Needles

The community has an artificial garden, which can be used for gatherings with family and friends without going too far, and the wines from nearby wineries are excellent

It has a high asian population which knows each other well. I like the asian cuisine here, and it is very affordable too. I like going to this vietnamese restaurant.

It is close to alot of restaurants, supermarkets etc. Also its not too far from a city. But also not too close.

I like to go to the nearby Victoria Bar very much, my children like to go to the nearby McDonald's very much, my parents like the nearby supermarket very much, the atmosphere of the bar is very good, I like it, my family go to the supermarket is very preferential activities, I think it is very affordable, I often go with them, I often take my children to the nearby McDonald's

I like to live by the sea and mountains. The sea makes me feel very comfortable, while the mountains make me feel very quiet

My neighborhood is very culturally diverse. Close to public transportation. Easy and quick to go to more iconic tourist areas and theaters.
