What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Parchment

It's not I live by a highway no sidewalk or not kid friendly at all dirt parking lot so I'm moving cause I gotta go clear across town to let kid play

It's nearby restaurants and shopping, but isolated enough to feel private. It's the best of both worlds.

I like the fact that we are so close to preserves that we feel isolated when we want. We are still close to neighbors and businesses. It's a wonderful balance.
