This is a comfortable 11x12 room with full Queen bed and luxury mattress topper. It also has one dresser and a bedside table. A computer desk. We are located just a few blocks to Uptown Mall and an easy walk to Swan Lake Nature Sanctuary.
We are unique in the fact that we usually have other foreign students or caregivers around so that you can share about experiences in your country or ask about their country. I like to visit with our guests if they need any help.
We have coffee maker, tea, fruit, yogurt, cereal, toast, eggs and food bars. Please let us know if you need something that is not on the list.
We would be pleased to help you with things to see or places to go in Victoria or up island. We often have several people around from other countries between our homestay students and caregivers for my husband. We would love to chat with you over breakfast, or after you get back from your adventures.
Smoking is allowed on the sundeck and the upper patio. Most food should be eaten in the dining room rather than spilling on the carpets or attracting bugs to the room. We do a lot of recycling so please ask where things should go.
Helping people learn bookkeeping, healthy living, organic food, trying some gluten free recipes and others, plus vitamins. I like to cook healthy food to keep me energetic and to keep my 91 year old husband strong. We love to learn about all the corners of the world over the dinner table, because it is too difficult with my business and his age to continue travelling.
We currently have several rooms for homestay students and a suite below. Please book as soon as possible. The rooms book up very quickly because the students tell their friends or bring them over and they want to move in as well.
We are only 3 minutes walk down two blocks to the bus, and it is only 10 minutes on the bus to town. We have a beautiful 45 minute hike around Swan Lake just outside our front window. We have shopping within walking distance, a couple of blocks down at the brand new Uptown Mall.
