What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Palm Coast

There are several grocery stores and restaurants nearby. It's a quiet neighborhood which I like a lot.

close to highway and local shops very quiet area is coming up with new house love that it dark as well

The top few main reasons I like living in this neighborhood, 1.)small suborb 10 mim from the beach 2.)low crime rate 3.)mostly Caucasian people on the roads 4.)in closed polls 5.) Alot of cool places to shop and dine afterwards to spend the evening with friends & family.

I like that its quiet. I like the weather. I like my home. It is nice to be so close to the beach. The yards are nicely maintained.

My neighborhood isn't on a main road. It's very quiet and peaceful. Everyone takes care of their properties. Palm coast is like living in a free HOA. There are a lot of rules how to keep your houses and yards. It's a small city with stores within 3miles to get to. I like going to the park down the street once and awhile.

It is a nice small town that is growing and is great for families. There are stores and many parks around for bike riding and for kids to play in. The beach is close by to watch the waves. There are many restaurants that you can find anything you want to eat.
