I am a 40 year resident of beautiful Victoria, BC. I work in tourism and travel, and enjoy my own travels mostly in our winter season when things are slower here. I've stayed in every kind of place in my travels, and that has guided me in creating this vacation rental space for maximum comfort and utility.

Martin Goodwin purchased this apartment in 1991

I built this home in 1991 and probably will own it forever! I consider the location to be perfect - on a quiet residential street, yet close to downtown. Our neighbourhood has grown so much over the last few years - all the desired conveniences are at hand. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
From the first contact with Martin to the moment we left it was a true pleasure. The suite was as advertised, even better actually, and the hosts were helpful, respectful, and provided the perfect opportunity for us to have a relaxing weekend in Victoria. We would not hesitate to recommend their place to anyone looking for a similar experience. Thank you Martin and Roxanne!

Really wonderful Victoria stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here with our two young children and the layout was perfect. The location was great to access the Galloping Goose trail and downtown, AND this was just about the cleanest place we've ever seen. We were quite pleased!

Wonderful visit to Victoria

  • 5 of 5
My wife, teenage daughter and I spent a great week in Victoria made all the better because of our accommodations at "the Weekender". The location was excellent, close to downtown and the harbor, yet in a quiet neighborhood with ample parking right out front. The owners were very helpful with suggestions of things to do. They were real hosts. The apartment itself is roomy and comfortable and met our needs perfectly. Thanks again for making our stay in Victoria a good one.

Lovely and spacious apartment!

  • 5 of 5
The Weekender is the perfect place to stay! It is modern and nicely furnished with more than enough space for four people. Martin and Roxanne were always there to give us tips and advice. It is unfortunate we only spent four nights as we really felt comfortable. We would definitely book this place again.

Absolute maximum rating of 5 stars!

Excellent choice for our family of 4

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Weekender for 2 nights and thoroughly enjoyed. The neighborhood is nice and quiet and parking is just in front of the house. The apartment is nicely decorated, relaxing to be in, and very clean. The hosts were very helpful both before our arrival and while we were there. The distance to town is walkable but Roxanne wisely suggested a place to park near the bridge for when we didn't want to walk. It was quick and easy. Both bedrooms were comfortable and the layout allows one to get to the living room, kitchen, and bathroom without waking people sleeping in the other bedroom. Highly recommend for an enjoyable stay in beautiful Victoria and environs.

Comfortable, convenient location

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I were in Victoria to visit my mum and stayed at Martin and Roxanne's lovely apartment for 5 nights. The place was spacious, clean and quiet. The extra little touches and comfortable surroundings made our stay really enjoyable! We would be happy to stay at "The Weekender" next time we are in Victoria!!

Our secure residential neighbourhood has easy parking right outside your window. It's just a short drive, bike, walk, or bus (leaves every 8 minutes) to downtown. To the Corner Store - 1 block; to our local mall for groceries or spirits - 4 blocks. We are near The Galloping Goose, Victoria's dedicated bike/walking path. To the right, you can follow the inner harbour into town - to the left you will cross a scenic waterway 'The Gorge', via Selkirk Trestle for a nice cafe or pub, or follow 'The Goose' for miles, if you like. Close to home we've had three new bakeries arrive lately, and coffee shop options ranging from The Spiral Cafe (great local music) to Starbucks within a few minutes walk. Ready for a pint? Spinnakers Brew Pub and Restaraunt overlooking the harbour and downtown is just a pleasant stroll from here.
