What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Kissimmee

Close to Main Street to take public transportation, have sidewalks and it's quiet it's also very close to a small shopping mall where you can find a lot of stuff.

I love living close to the mall and downtown. Everything we need is close by, and we have tons of restaurants near us.

i like the fact that it is restricted to people who are at least 50 years old, and that it has a pool

I want to live close to my office so that I can get to work easily and reduce my travel time. I want to sleep in. Preferably near a large supermarket so that I can buy what I need

My neighborhood is very quite and not that busy. My favorite local business is steak and shake. I like going to the mall with my family and friends.

Careing.KFC.traveling or near zoo visit in all my family,good communication and good safety,overall good .and well beheave always
