Where is Maid Filmed?

October 20, 2023

Since its release, Netflix’s newest drama Maid has stayed in the top 10 for several weeks and tells the story of single mother Alex who works to make ends meet while caring for her daughter Maddy. The series, based on Stephanie Land’s memoir, stars Margaret Qualley as Alex and features her real life mother Andie MacDowell as her on-screen mother Paula. The show has a talented cast and is unflinching in its depiction of living below the poverty line and working hard for your family.

As many of you may have heard, the show was filmed in Greater Victoria on Vancouver Island. According to the Times Colonist, over 160 areas around the city were used for filming. The most prominent locations include the pier and Greater Canadian Dollar Store in Sidney, Helmcken Market in View Royal and Gordon Head Recreation Centre in Saanich. The show was also filmed at The Butchart Gardens, which is a must-see attraction with colorful blooms and lush greens.

Is Fisher Island a Real Place?

While the show’s fictional Fisher Island is located in Washington state, the majority of the show was filmed on Vancouver Island. While the fictional town of Port Hampstead was based on Port Townsend, Vancouver Island served as a stand in for much of the area where the wealthy clients live.

The production crew of Maid was mindful of their impact on the local community and worked to give back. In keeping with the show’s narrative, they donated wardrobe and set decorations to multiple organizations that support women, including the Victoria Women’s Transition House, Women in Need Society and Y Young Moms Program.
