Local Reviews

Neighborhood is houses built in the 50's/60's. Long time residents and extended families. Businesses not far away; good selection of shopping choices. Like several restaurants and plenty of grocery shopping places.

The neighborhood I live in and those surrounding are well established and very charming with a classic style/design. We are very nicely placed next to some of the best bars like Sire and LPH (Locals Public House) both of which have AMAZING food as well as great drinks as well as some outstanding restaurants like Anchos or Simple Simons and Romanos, all owned by locals and offer very unique menus. Grabbing the kids and walking the Mission Inn and all of its breathtaking scenery is a great time.

We roam in the area with friends and family, quite neighbors. Christmas light decorations are awesome!!!

Older, established neighborhood with nice trees. Also, we are close to shopping so can walk to plaza and restaurants.

We love how peaceful it is and the amazing views and tree lined streets. People are always out walking dogs and enjoying the country club and golf course that is here. Very friendly

Fewer offenders are safer but the traffic is bad It's easier to have police on patrol 24 hours a day
