The view is gorgeous out the windows, forest hills and there is peace at night for good sleep, no sound of cars because the house is on a cul de sac. My brother and I loved the outdoors picking blackberries around the house down to Florence Lake, a memorable summer. Pamela was so compassionate and giving to us with our situation having moved to Victoria and being on our own without a car. My brother, one of us, has severe mental disability and we managed to make it work, there were piano lessons almost daily and a paino camp one week. So it was a big challenge for me to manage, I wouldn't want to have missed out though on the wonderful atmosphere there because of the music and the children and the teachers including Pamela herself who is so patient and welcoming to all, the music changed how I was feeling at the time and I brushed up some of my old repertoire on the piano. My brother and I stayed one month, August into September, which is probably unusual and I would say our host was more prepared for shorter stays. The room is a nice one, the kitchen has a big fridge and big cooker but the other kitchen equipment is more for shorter stays but then I didn't ask for anything more, we got a really good deal on Airbnb with our host and she was already so tolerant about my brother with developmental delay and our delicate toileting hygiene challenge. We did our laundry usually every day upstairs for $5, I cooked every day so we really had such a great comfort of being able to do that without restrictions. The lighting is beautiful, halogen lamps. I got to have use of the balcony too. The bus stop is really close and you are not at all isolated with that and the stores like Staples and home depot so close by and the greatest grocery called The Market on Millstream in walking distance.
