What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Irmo

Plenty of shops within 2 miles of house. Numerous parks and recreational facilities. Many restaurants within 2 miles.

The area is great for walks always have good food we love going to the mall or the the tatto parler we love San Jose Chick-fil-A or mcdonals

It's quiet and has a lot of trees and is very beautiful. There are also a lot of kids in the area which makes it more lively.

I like the fact we have neighbors close by and we can walk right up to there house if we have any problems i like the fact we have our own trash cans too

I love that the neighborhood is quiet and that mostly older people live here. I also like the fact that it is close to everything.
