About Martin

I'm a vacation rental manager in Victoria BC. I manage several vacation rentals in the best areas of the city!

Martin purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Martin chose Victoria

We bought this property mainly because it's right across the street from the Ocean. Also, it's a designated heritage property, which we love!

Almost there...

  • 3 of 5

It was a great location and we enjoyed the walks by the ocean and the convenience of grocery stores as well as wine venue. However our view was not the ocean but recyle bins and parked cars. The add made it seem like it was across the street. The sound of pitter patter at 8am was heard but not loud voices thank goodness. Just wanted a room with a veiw for the extra $$ would have liked the truth of the views from.every window. The place was spacious could use another comfy chair and a little more padding on the matress but had acess to the needed items for a good meal and time out. We have used VRBO extensively around the world so have been spoiled with exceptional places we have stayed for less $$$.

Clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

Great location; quick walk to grocery store, coffee shop, Fisherman's Wharf, Parliament Building, and downtown area. Clean apartment and furnished with items of convenience. Bed and sofa could have been a tad more comfortable, but overall great choice if visiting downtown Victoria.

Great place. Will come again!

  • 5 of 5

The place was very clean and in a perfect location: right across the street from the oceanfront path and just a 15 min walk to downtown and the harbor. Martin was great, easy to get in touch with, and had good restaurant recommendations. We had a great time!

Love the location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful, clean, convenient accommodation in a fabulous location, just a short , fifteen minute walk to Victoria Harbour and a couple of minutes to the coastal path. There were lots of coffee shops nearby as well as a grocery store. Martin was helpful about aragements ffor collecting the keys and prompt in communicating to answer questions.

What a Location!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Victoria. The Oceanside Suite was well equipped and very convenient. We loved the James Bay neighbourhood and enjoyed our evening strolls along the nearby beach waterfront as well as coffee, drinks and snacks in the local pubs and restaurants. Downtown Victoria was an easy and pleasant twenty-minute walk away. Whatever problems we encountered with our accommodations were quickly resolved by our host. I would highly recommend this place for its location and ambience.

Loved this location and suite!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this suite because I wanted to be by the ocean, which was right across the street. We were also just a 10 minute walk to the inner harbor. Shopping was just a few steps away, so all in all this was great and very walkable location. The suite was was clean, comfortable and quite large. I enjoyed having use of a full kitchen with cookware. Checkin and checkout was simple and straight forward. No complaints, this was a perfect trip!
