Vancouver Island & Gulf Islands Vacations

Vacation Rentals in Vancouver Island & Gulf Islands, British Columbia

The Vancouver Island region—encompassing Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and some of British Columbia’s mainland—is a highly coveted cottage country area. In fact, Conde Nast Traveler named it the top island to visit in Canada! With rainforests, beaches and mountains, it has one of the world’s most diverse ecosystems and there are cabin rentals scattered throughout.  

Vancouver Island is bisected by the Beaufort Mountain Range, and much of the land area is protected parkland and old-growth forest. Hikers and bikers can experience untouched wilderness and spetacular wildlife (hint: check out the Pacific Rim National Park), while anglers can fish for all five species of Pacific salmon in the area's lakes and rivers. In the spring and summer, the island has a Mediterranean-like climate and its tranquil beaches are swimming, sailing, and surfing hot spots. Come winter, there is world class skiing and snowboarding at Mount Washington. Year round, the region is a playground for food and culture lovers, as Victoria (BC's capital city) and Cowichan Valley’s “Gourmet Trail” are home to restaurants, farmers’ markets, and wineries and the north part of the island is rich in First Nations heritage, art and culture.

On the over 200 Gulf Islands, named by National Geographic Traveler as one of the world's best coastal destinations, visitors can fish, kayak, and scuba dive in the sheltered waters between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia. This is also one of the world’s best places to see orcas, humpbacks, and grey whales. Then, after adventures in the great outdoors, spend time touring wineries and vineyards on Salt Spring and Saturna Islands, where artisan fare and fresh produce can be sampled at organic farms and farmers' markets. 

Vancouver Island cabin rentals and Gulf Island cabin rentals are easily accessible via BC Ferry from Vancouver and Victoria and are among the most coveted vacation rentals in British Columbia.
