What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Southwest Tampa Tampa

It is in a very central location that is super close to many stores and great eats. Would also say it is very scenic considering the town is surrounded by water in some ways.

I live in the perfect location between two cities. I'm 7 minutes from my gym and close to the highway to get to my Pilates classes and many coffee shops. There's a nice area near by that has an array of restaurants and shops as well- it just got built this year.

The park near by is good for kids and dogs. The neighborhood has friendly folks and is very dog friendly.

I am aveteran and live 3 miles from an Air zforce base. Local restaurants are really good. I am a loner and enjoy my family. The views of the bay is reall nice on the eyes and helps security.y y

It's on an island by downtown, and it's close to three grocery stores and a couple markets. It's a very walkable area to live.

The area is family friendly, schools, restaurants and stores are nearby. Neighborhood is quiet. There are parks nearby. There are a lot of outdoor activities to enjoy the outdoors.
