What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About West Dundee

The best thing about this area are the people. Everyone is friendly and all of the amenities are close by.

I like that we are close to everything, but able to have privacy and not too much traffic. I like going to restaurants with my friends. Target and other shopping is 5 minutes away.

Everyone is very close. The whole neighborhood seems to be involved in any and all activities hosted by the neighborhood.

Our neighborhood is quiet most of the time. Friendly neighbors are everywhere. We have street lights which makes it very safe at night.
