What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Pleasant Hill

Everyone here lives in the water. It's residential so there aren't any businesses close by. You have to walk or drive over a mile before there is even a gas station.

I like that it is safe. I also like that there are a lot of kids that run around outside. The parents are also very nice and friendly.
