What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Waipahu

Has unique stores and restaurants. You can find mostly anything to do. Go to the chicken fights. The neighbors are mostly friendly. The parks have a very big area and a lot of room for a lot of people. My neighborhood has a lot of very unique restaurants and they have so many delicious foods and beverages to choose from. It's very, very nice and very friendly place to live in.

The view is great. We also have Walmart, a grocery store and businesses/restaurants nearby and it's short drive to other shops.

What I like most is that I live with my family and I feel safe with them. I get to see my friends daily since the city is small

My favorite restaurant is mcdonalds. Everyone knows of everyone, but does not get along with others dkmd

The uniqueness of this neighbourhood is that there are many asian people here and it is close to restaurants and grocery stores.
