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.

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.

Our second stay at The Weekender was just as great as the first! Our preferred location to stay while in Victoria! Very close to everything, yet you feel like you are off the beaten path. Place has everything needed. Hosts are very accommodating and great to deal with.

Absolutely, completely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

Martin could not have done any better in providing a CLEAN and comfortable place for us to stay. The location is perfect, the place is IMMACULATE, and everything is well appointed. The bed is comfy and there's a lot of sunlight that comes into the entire house. (Don't worry, there's good shades/blinds/drapes to use at night!). The kitchen is a full working kitchen. Absolutely, positively, will be coming back!!

Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5

Martin's rental was perfect for our family of two moms and two young kids. It is big, clean, and comfortable. Martin is a nice person and an expert on all the best local activities. If you have kids or love animals, take his advice about checking out the mini goats at the Beacon Hill Park petting farm- they are adorable!! Thanks for the hospitality Martin!

Wonderful place, location and landowners!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three months and loved every day. The unit is beautiful, comfortable, clean and well maintained. The owners were kind, helpful, welcoming and friendly. We enjoyed our stay and would stay there again if opportunity brings us back to Victoria in the future. Warmly recommended to anyone who wants to enjoy the comfort of a well-equipped cozy accommodation while visiting Victoria.

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.
