What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Westlake Los Angeles

Very little. It is an undesirable area and many people do not leave the house on foot. I like being near a school

At least I have everything close markets, restaurants I have close malls I have everything's close to me where I can hangout with friends in coffe shops I have a lot of restaurants near my home and you have parks near by

There is nothing unique about this neighborhood, nothing. There are two grocery store one mile from here, which is not too bad, yet the area is not that safe, and the area is not very clean.

I like living near a high street and I want to get together with friends and have a drink when I'm free

There are many places to gather, I often go with my family, especially the singing place, we will have a lot of people there

I live in a neighborhood with good greenery. My children and I like to take a walk in the neighborhood after dinner. There are also high-end restaurants that my family and I like to go to, and shops that I like to shop in
