What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Suffolk

It is a very quiet neighborhood. Neighbors sit outside in nice weather and interact with each other.

It's in the sticks. It's small. It mostly has water back property, which is a 2 sided sword as my boat was stolen 15 years ago and never found. Put a kabash on entertaining family and guests.

It can be close to sports facilities and parks. There are many restaurants and shops nearby. I prefer to travel with my family and go to bars with my friends

I like the restaurant nearby best, there are a lot of food, my family and I like to eat there. The people in our community are nice and the environment is beautiful

There are a lot of small business restaurants downtown who are very active in the community. My favorite is the Mexican restaurant.

Whoever moves here will have a great time in the neighborhood for the simple fact that the nabores are great
