What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Palmetto

The mobile home park I live in is considered the friendliest mobile home park in the world. Stores and restaurants are with in walking distance. There is a lovely gulf cart parade for Christmas.

My neighborhood is unique because it has everything needed within walking distance. Schools, grocery store, salons, barbers park, fire station police station.

I like that I am not too far from they highway where I can easily get to other locations within the county or state. I also like that the Publix is not too far from my house so I can get groceries and prescriptions in a short amount of time. I like that I feel safe to walk around the neighborhood and leave my door unlocked while I play outside with my kids or down the street at the park.

I like the mount of green spaces in my neighborhood. It has a good selection of restaurants. I like to go to the beach with family and friends.

Its quiet all the time and no neighbors bother anyone including my family. Its not busy and its safe.

This is a family friendly neighborhood our section is fantastic. However there are a few Busy Bodies but doesn't every neighborhood have busy bodies
