I've had some god awful landlords that took advantage of me. But I'm finally happy at home. No drama with boyfriend, roommates, neighbors, etc. I have space for gardening, access to fruit trees (orange, lemon, and yellow grapefruit - so good and never knew about this kind!) Having such kind landlord with spacious backyard has been a huge revelation since I've been living in cramped apartments all my life. Rent is within budget and 1.5 miles from work. I really lucked out.
