What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Exeter

I like living here because there are supermarkets close by and restaurants and I have really good neighbors who are always ready to help me

You definitely need a car to get around where I live because it's rural. There was no bus service of any kind that goes through here. It's very busy and country area. I want to go to restaurants shops etc you need a car. I do live near the beach and you take a ride over and see the beautiful blue. There are lots of good restaurants along the coast.

I love the people who live here. I am able to walk around safely. There are a lot of pets and children.

There is a quaint feel with a bandstand and annual town events. I love the coffee shop the small museum in town. We love that the beach is about 20 minutes away.

I live one town in from the coastal beaches which I really enjoy walking there. I am just far enough inland to enjoy peace and quiet away from the tourist people!
