What Renters Like and Dislike About Waxhaw

Not a very large community. There is an HOA with rules. Most neighbors look out for one another. Most homes are very well maintained.

Walking to village to have a coffee. Trails to walk or jog. playground equipment for the many children living here.

People are very friendly. Many kids playing outside. Close to urban areas. Good amount of activities.

Its very family friendly and large enough to walk all around. Its very pretty and the houses are large.

I love the local restaurants and the people! Everyone is friendly and my town offers fun Friday night activities in the summer. I also love my local farmers market and grocery store.

Like being in nature rural area. Woods all around. Like nature walks. and seeing stars. I mostly leave my home for entertainment and shopping since so rural
