"And how does a lodging possess five factors?

Here, the lodging is neither too far from a place for alms nor too close, and it possesses a means for going and returning.

During the day it is not disturbed by people and at night it is quiet and still.

There is little contact with flies, mosquitoes, wind, the burning sun, and serpents.

One dwelling in that lodging can easily obtain robes, almsfood, lodging, and medicines and provisions for the sick. In that lodging elder bhikkhus are dwelling who are learned, heirs to the heritage,experts on the Dhamma, experts on the discipline, experts on the outlines. It is in this way that a lodging possesses five factors."

(Aṅguttara Nikāya 10.11 - Senāsana Sutta)
