What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Fort Myers

I really don't go out a night but I have good neighbors.yhw kids in my neighborhood are good kids .they play outside and their parents take walks with them .I take walks with my grandson everyday.

I like this neighborhood because we are close to the grocery store. I like that we are close to our Doctors office and the Hospital. I like that the Airport is not too far away.

All kinds of restaurants and shops are all around me, very nice area, have a community pool and work out room, overall great

I like the supporting facilities around the community most, including restaurants, bars and entertainment facilities, which greatly improve the convenience of life. The surrounding supporting schools, police stations, high security, rich and complete catering taste, which is deeply liked by everyone

The things I like the most are that my community is gated, it has sidewalks, and it has well kept yards.

We don't go out we stay inside because we don't wanna get caught up in anything. Planet fitness is close by it's still like a few minutes away tho. That's about it tbh there really nothing else to do.
