Local Reviews

I like how close my neighborhood is to everything I need. I work in downtown Austin and I don't sit in a lot of traffic to go to work.

i love that the community of people living in my neighborhood is very family friendly. i grew up with my neighbors and i being friends.

My neighborhood is everything u want in a neighborhood and more. It's peaceful and everybody keeps to themselves and I've never had a problem while living here

The style of homes appear to use a 1950's look. Like the detached garages. Several big parks nearby. People are often out walking and running. Kids are safe. Movie theater nearby.

I like the area which is centrally located. It is not more than 30 minutes from shopping areas, restaurants, and recreational areas.

Beautiful RV resort with helpful staff. Close to stores & restaurants. Many outdoor activities. Easy access to major state highway. 2 large dog parks. Daily trash pick-up. Recycling bin available. Very clean & modern laundry/shower facility
