About Martin Goodwin

I am a 43 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.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Martin's suite has everything you could need, including office supplies, we needed some scotch tape! The location is very quiet and walking distance to stores and restaurants. The outdoor garden areas would have been lovely to enjoy if our weather had been drier! A much needed umbrella was included for us. We won't hesitate to book this suite in the future.

WE loved your stay here. We were worried about maps and finding places. we worried needlessly. The desk had maps of downtown and surrounding area, plus brouchers for anything you could possibley do in the Victoria area. The suite was clean and quiet, wonderful small gardens. Loved the pagoda that was lite up. Enjoyed our stay!! Thank you.

Beautiful rental - perfect for our small family

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay over Christmas break with our family of 4. The apt is setup so well and we loved the layout where we could nap our little ones in their own rooms and still hang out and enjoy the warm fireplace and watch TV and relax on the couch. The beds are super comfortable as well as the couch and we felt like we were at home in Victoria. All the rooms are spacious, warm, and cozy and we really enjoyed spending quiet time at home with our little ones. The apt being on the ground floor made it super easy with stroller and getting in/out of the apt with our kids. We also loved the location and being a 5 min walk to the grocery store and starbucks. All in all a wonderful stay at a beautiful apartment.

Quiet West Vic Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This a nice two bedroom place on the ground level of a house in a quiet residential neighborhood that is quite handy to downtown Victoria, but feels like it is on its own island. Great waterfront walking paths nearby. The rooms are light and fairly roomy. On street parking, but never a problem. Loved it, hope to stay again.

Absolute perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a wonderful week at the Weekender. The location couldn't be better. It's in a lovely, quiet neighborhood but only minutes away when you want to enjoy the fun of downtown for restaurants, the harbor, theater, etc. We were so taken by its charm & the impeccable decor which was obviously chosen with great care & exceptional taste. Loved the artwork on the walls & peaceful environs. Stocked with everything you could possibly need to make your stay comfortable & carefree. They've thought of everything. The kitchen is thoughtfully stocked, & they've provided tons of maps, pamphlets, books & information on Victoria and the rest of the island. As busy as were were exploring the many wonderful neighborhoods, beaches and wonders of the island, we looked forward to coming home every night to our perfect retreat. The Weekender gets our enthusiastic recommendation. We happily look forward to a return visit.

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 Restaurant overlooking the harbour and downtown is just a pleasant stroll from here.
