What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Summerville

Overall the neighborhood is quiet and a lot of the people have lived here for a long time. Most homes have large yards.

I love how beautiful it is. I also love how close it is to major places like Myrtle Beach and Hilton Head

We live near schools and grocery stores and fast food places our neighborhood isn't really unique we have very nice neighbors for the most part it's a quiet neighborhood

Generations of the same family live here. Everyone knows each other. I like outdoor activities like hiking on trail and biking. Best restaurant is Oscars which is mexican.

Its kid friendly and there are alot of stores nearby! We can pretty much go anywhere since we have all the stores right outside the door.

kept up, friendly neighbors, help if you need. We ar ealso very close to town and all the shopping and stores you need. Also very close to interstate entrance
