What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Spotswood

There are 3 bus stops all within walking distance of my neighborhood. The people are very nice and Grocery stores and restaurants are only a few minutes away.

I would like to live in a nearby place with good health care and relatively high quality residents and close to the school. It would be better to have a family gathering place so that we can get together in our leisure time

Prevent theft, fire prevention and destruction, arrest the bad guys. Prevent theft, fire prevention and destruction, arrest the bad guys.Strive for duty security officers, community safety in mind;

We have nice neighbors. We live close to my husband's work. We live close to favorite Pizza restaurant.

It provides calm bile being in close proximity to a very commercial area. My favorite restaurants are found about 5 to 7 miles away where there multiple Italian restaurants and bars. I love going to the beaches with my husband.

I like that I live near to all my kids' schools. The park has gotten better in the last couple of years.
