What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Huntsville

It has a few good restaurants in walking distance and stores also easy to go to. I don't hang out with friends

We have a club house & a pool for Summer enjoyment. There is a playground for the kids & a after school program available at no charge for families who reside here.

Nothing unique really. Mostly older retired people. It has a nice lake nearby but not really goo for fishing.

I like how clean it is and peaceful. Hardly any noise and it is down the street from grocery stores and food places.
