What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Forest Oaks

The hotel nearby is very satisfactory, very high class family and friends say it is very good, and the service is very good

Most of my neighbors are older and have retired. And most of the homes in my neighborhood are paid for

I like being close to my job. I like my apartment. I like being able to walk downtown. I wish there were more boutiques and shopping but I do like Just Be and I like to eat at crafted and natty greens.

I like that it is only an hour to Charlotte. It is close to the highway. I like that shopping and restaurants are close by.

The uptown's pizza and wings because they have great pizza and wings there too and I think I can make a pizza and a salad and some other thing but I'm just trying not really want anything from the grocery store

I like that all the good restaurants and food places are so near. There's parks near the house where you can hang out with the family.
