About Martin Goodwin

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

Why Martin Goodwin chose Victoria

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.

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We parked our car the day we arrived and didn't drive again for over two days. To get around we walked, road bicycles and skateboarded everywhere we wanted to go, including to downtown Victoria. There's even a very nice skateboard park a short stroll away! The Weekender's accommodations are very spacious, quiet, clean and comfortable.Too bad we were gone so much of the time, because it's a great place to just hang out, too. There are A LOT of DVD movies and a large televison to watch them. We would highly recommend this place to all and definitely would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Thanks Paul, we look forward to seeing you again. You're the first guest to discover our local skateboard park! Also, thanks for reinforcing our thoughts that we have a very walkable location.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at this property. The listing description was accurate. The property was very well kept. We felt like it's our home away from home. The property was fully furnished and we were able to cook breakfasts in as well as making lunches. The owners, Martin and Roxanne were very thoughtful in preparing the place prior to our arrival. He was in touch with us as soon as we got off the ferry. They assisted with directions to various points of interests, restaurants, etc.,,, We appreciated all their help. We will definitely refer friends & families when they visit Victoria.

Excellent Property - Exactly as Advertised!

  • 5 of 5
There's not much I can add to the other positive reviews posted…neat, clean and tidy condo that was exactly as presented on the website. Quiet, super convenient location just a short walk across the bridge to downtown and ample, easy parking right out front. Very friendly, helpful and courteous owner.
I would not hesitate staying there again…great value!

Thank you for a great stay at "the Weekender". It more than met our expectations. The location in a very quiet neighbourhood so close to downtown Victoria was perfect . We will certainly stay again if we need a spot in Victoria and will suggest that friends and family give it a look also.

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!

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.
