What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Westlake

They are still independent businesses around like bakeries and butcher shops. Many of my neighbors have lived there a long time and are friendly.

It's a quiet neighborhood. Most of the neighbors know each other. Plenty of places to walk or bike ride.

A nice neighborhood with a busy fancy shopping center only one block away is not only convenient, but also fun because you are close to the action, but also, a nice quiet suburban existance too.

Grocery stores nearby. Close to a nice mall. Close to the lake. Close to parks. Close to great neighborhoods. Close to grocery stores.

My neighborhood is community based and everyone is nice and friendly and knows each other. My favorite local businesses is Starbucks and Olive Garden. My family and I like going to the recreational center.

We enjoy going the local rec center with our family. There are a lot of different locally owned restaurants near us.
