What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Athens

It is peaceful and quiet. I have a beautiful view of the mountains. All services are nearby but not in the neighborhood.

Nothing to unique, maybe the large storm drain but for the most part theres not much here. Most of the stuff are at the truck stop or a bit of a drive away. So its kinda dull if im being honest.

Pools and pet friendly. Peaceful in the evenings and neighbor's are nice. We clean up after our animals and vehicles

I like that I live within walking distance of several restaurants and little stores & bars. I usually like to walk towards the richer neighborhoods because there is more scenic views.
