There is a great little IGA a couple of blocks away that is amazingly well stocked. The laundry door is misaligned so doesn't lock and as it's the second toilet it can make for a nervous visit. For my elderly parents the couches were a little low but they loved being able to watch all of the goings on from the huge floor to ceiling windows at the front of the house. I forgot my pillow and was nervous about how i'd sleep but there were a variety of pillow types so no problem and the beds were probably the most comfortable that I've ever slept on during a 'stays' stay.
