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.

Perfect size and location for our family of four

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here while exploring the Victoria area. With the two bedrooms, it was the perfect size for our family of four and within about a 7 minute drive to the Inner Harbor. It was a charming home and very clean and bright. Although we only used the kitchen for simple breakfasts, it seemed fully stocked with appliances and utensils. There was not much yard space, though we didn't have a need for it. The neighborhood was quiet and seemed safe. Debbie was very easy to contact and pleasant to work with. The kids reported that the bunk beds were comfortable enough but the bed in the other room was not the most comfortable. We would recommend this home!

Owner's Response: Thanks kindly for your review. All of the mattresses are quite new. The bed you slept on is a firm mattress topped with a 2 inch memory foam for added comfort. I'm sorry you found it uncomfortable but the majority of people do prefer this. Debbie

Bright and sunny.

  • 4 of 5

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.

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.
