Great place to live, but traffic getting in and out of the area is bad. Good restaurants starting to come into the area. Still not terribly horrible traffic going to Dripping Springs for less stressful retail options. West Oak Hill is just far away enough that you feel like you're in the Hill Country but close enough to Austin to enjoy and suffer through city life.

This is a quiet area, and I have enjoyed living here the past two years. Apartment prices can be a little higher, but it is worth it for the sense of security in the neighborhood.
There are many local businesses including grocers, restaurants and shops. There are also many big business companies such as Target and Walmart.
