What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About South San Francisco

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

There are good places near. Examples I clude parks and schools. I like going to the park. It is also nice to walk around. Walking around the area is calming and relaxing and releases stress

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.

near everything one needs in life to feel satisfied. there's a nearby shopping mall and near a bart system of transportation.

You can take a walk by the river in the evening. There may be buskers singing along the river. Some of them are good singers and play the guitar very well
