About Debbie Pemberton

I'm originally from Barrie, Ontario but moved to Victoria BC in June 1989 when my then 6 year old daughter finished kindergarten. As a single mother I wanted to be closer to my family who had all previously made the move out west. This was the best decision that I have ever made. Victoria is truly a wonderful place to live with everything it has to offer, not to mention the fact that it has the best year round weather in all of Canada. Not too many people in Canada can say they golf and bike in January and February but we can here in Victoria.

Debbie Pemberton purchased this House in 1991

Why Debbie Pemberton chose Hillside - Quadra - Downtown Blanshard

I purchased this home in 1991. Being an older home it was full of character and had a lot of soul. There are hardwood floors in the main living space, wainscotting in the living room and sun room. Over the years I have completely renovated the home to bring it up to today's modern standards.

What makes this House unique

This lovely home is tucked away in a quiet, residential area but ideally located close to downtown. It gets an abundance of light throughout the home. The sun room has nine windows alone! It's a charming, character-filled house that is relaxing and clutter-free. Care was taken to decorate it to show it to its full advantage.

                          Great deal.

                          Anne B.

                          Great location. Well outfitted. Lots of space for all of us.

                          Bright and sunny.

                          Carol K.canada

                          We had a nice stay. The house is close to everything we wanted to do. It's a shame we couldn't have a bath though because the plug wouldn't work. Well stocked kitchen. It was fun to use a different set of dishes for every meal.

                          Perfect place for a getaway!

                          Karen D.

                          Very comfortable accommodations for our family of 5. Beds are comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked. Great location for exploring lovely Victoria!

                          Perfect home for our stay. Well equipped

                          mary l.

                          Our group enjoyed the stay at Debbies place. Only 5 minutes to downtown Vittoria. Quiet suburb

                          Property is spacious and kitchen was well stocked!

                          Connie W.

                          Debbie was fantastic to deal with! We had a small issue and upon notifying her, she resolved it within the hour! She is very gracious and was always a text away! Kitchen is well stocked with cutlery, plates, cups and all the essential cookware! It was so handy having a washer/dryer (with all detergents and bounce sheets) available. My boys loved the bunk beds and the entire suite was very clean. This is a character home so the floors are creaky and some other nuisances, but it was a wonderful property for my family of 4 to stay at. Wifi was also great :). Hoping to stay in the future again!!

                          Wonderful rental!

                          CARRIE R.

                          We had a wonderful time during our stay. The property was very comfortable and clean and the kitchen was well equipped with all the necessary items to prepare our meals at the house. Debbie was very kind and available to assist with any questions that may have come up during our visit. I recommend this property as a quiet and tidy home away from home for your visit to the area.

                          Owner's Response:

                          Hillside - Quadra - Downtown Blanshard, Victoria, BC, Canada

                          Victoria is a lovely community located on the southern tip of Vancouver Island and is also the capital of British Columbia. It is the must-see city to visit in British Columbia, starting with a trip - just a ten minute drive from my home - to the Parliament buildings adjacent to the harbour. Victoria has been a popular recreation destination for well over a century with year-round golfing, cycling, bird-watching, kayaking and hiking to name just a few of the many activities visitors can enjoy. Just around the corner from my home, are popular restaurants like Fifth Street Bar and Grill and San Remo (Italian) restaurant. Shopping is nearby since my home is situated close to two major malls in the city.
