What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About South Lake Tahoe

it has a transport system and it is near lots of gyms and solons. they are also a lot of car retail shops near by

It is like Mayberry. People are cordial and helpful. There is even a house with a live goat on the front porch just around the corner.

I like that all the neighbors are friends. We all hang out together in the court. All of our children get along and feel safe playing outside together. I like that we are close to shopping and place to eat.

Things that are unique is parks nearby and the people. My favorite local businesses are flower shops and a store close to my home. I like to go camping with family and friends.

It is safe, people are friendly, and it is easy to get to places I need to.
