Find the best place to stay — Downtown

The heart of an exciting metropolis

Come rain or shine, Vancouver is utterly captivating. It’s regularly voted one of the world’s most livable cities, and it’s easy to fall head over heels for Vancouver. The city is incredibly photogenic, backed by mountains on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Downtown Vancouver vacation rentals make the most of the views, with luxe condos overlooking English Bay. Whether you want to soak up the sun on an urban beach, enjoy a scenic bike ride or sip on sunset cocktails, Downtown Vancouver has it all.

From the beach to the bar

If the sun’s shining, you’ll want to soak up the atmosphere at English Bay, one of Canada’s best urban beaches. It’s just steps from colorful Davie Village, the beating heart of Vancouver’s LGBT scene. Gastown, meanwhile, is Downtown Vancouver’s trendiest quarter, with cobblestoned Water Street lined with cocktail bars and clothing boutiques. If you appreciate heritage buildings and tasteful decor, Downtown Vancouver vacation rentals unlock access to some of Gastown’s best properties. Down by the water, Canada Place is a great place for a stroll, with gorgeous views of the North Shore mountains. If you’re feeling adventurous you could even take off on a scenic float plane tour.

A family-friendly city

On a sunny day there’s nothing better than renting a bike and cycling around the Stanley Park Seawall, stopping at beaches and viewpoints along the way. Before you go, why not take the Aquabus to Granville Island Public Market, where you can stock up on a smorgasbord of fish, cheese, fruit, and baked goods. If you’ve got kids in tow, Downtown Vancouver is home to some great family attractions, including Science World and the Vancouver Aquarium. There’s also plenty of culture to devour, with big-ticket attractions like the Vancouver Art Gallery and Museum of Vancouver.

Summer sun and snow-dusted winters

Protected by both Vancouver Island and the North Shore mountains, Vancouver enjoys less rainfall and far more sunshine than BC’s other coastal areas. Summers are divine, with warm weather that’s perfect for sightseeing, sunbathing, or enjoying a leisurely patio meal. Things can get pretty damp during fall and winter, though the city is never overly cold or snowy. If you’re planning to hit the slopes at Cypress, Grouse, or Seymour, a Downtown Vancouver vacation rental makes a fantastic base.

Knockout urban scenery

Downtown Vancouver sits in the southwest corner of mainland British Columbia. To the west is the Strait of Georgia, with the mighty Coast Mountains rising over the city’s boundary. Downtown’s core is bordered by major streets, including Burrard, Hastings, and Georgia. It’s walkable and easy to navigate, with local buses and sky trains also stopping throughout the CBD. From laidback Sunset Beach to glitzy Yaletown, Downtown Vancouver vacation rentals put you in the heart of the action. And if you want to experience Canada’s legendary outdoor lifestyle, attractions like Grouse Mountain and Cypress Provincial Park are just across the Lions Gate Bridge.
