What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Shillington

My neighborhood is near the city which gives a lot of population. There is not much to do in this area other than going out to eat.

We have a big yard so we can play games. We have a big mall that we can go shopping with the amount of money we have

I have a beautiful view. It is an easy walk to restaurants and shops. The police are next door. The building is very secure and i feel safe living here.

Something unique is that that we have a frienlts restaurant across the street so if u ever feeel like u don't want to cook there is a perfect place across the street
