What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Commonwealth Boston

I live in the neighborhood because I'm a live-in caregiver. The things I do like are it close to major shopping area that includes restaurants

The unique aspect of my neighborhood is we all watch out for one another. My favorite local restaurant is Great Wall chinese restaurant - very inexpensive, but great food! I like to take my kids and dogs on a walk through our many beautiful parks or down by our local lake.

The location is the best part about this neighborhood. It's also super close to Pewaukee lake and downtown Pewaukee which has a lot of near shops and restaurants.

Our neighborhood is very quiet. Our neighborhood is on a dead end street. Our taxes are somewhat reasonable.

Good view of lake, great local business including restaurants and pet store and coffee shop. Chocolate factory is always a blast and it's down the road. Also, the fireworks for July can be seen from our front stoop - it looks like they are right in front of us! Really great view!
