What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About San Mateo

There is lovely park in the walking distance, and many, many restaurants particualarly ethnic restaurants, making dining a challenging and interesting experience.

It's close to di end park which is nice but really jo restraughts. Grocery is about a mile away only.

Can't think of anything at the moment everything seems cool not sure at the moment maybe have a grocery store closer by

I love that my neighborhood is quiet. Also it is very close to supermarkets, the freeway and where I work.

The malls, food places, psrks, picknics. Fairs. Family events and functions. Bowling alley. Movies to watch.

It is a safe environment and everyone is nice to Escher other., which is nice because everyone cares
