    Introducing BC’s pint-sized capital

    Sitting on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria is one of Canada’s most charismatic destinations. The compact city is the capital of British Columbia, and is brimming with history, culture, and knockout scenery. If you want a taste of Canada’s outdoor lifestyle you’re in luck, because Victoria is laden with opportunities to hike, bike, fish, golf, and more. It’s also one of the world’s best whale watching destinations, with resident pods of orcas cruising the Pacific Coast. With waterfront Victoria vacation rentals, you could even spot frolicking whales from your own private deck.

    Old meets new in downtown Victoria

    While Victoria was settled by the English, it now has an attitude all of its own. The downtown core is lined with heritage buildings, which house an eclectic mix of shops, bars, and restaurants. There’s a big focus on farm-to-table produce, which means you can enjoy a restaurant meal or cook up fresh salmon in the kitchen of your Victoria vacation rental. Cobblestone streets lead down to the Inner Harbor, where a picturesque promenade hugs the shoreline. Follow it down to Fisherman's Wharf, where you can grab an ice cream, say hello to friendly seals or sign up for an exhilarating sea plane or whale watching tour.

    Discover a lavish past

    Draped in ivy, the iconic Fairmont Empress Hotel is a Victorian landmark. If you’re feeling extravagant, why not splurge on afternoon tea in the lobby lounge? Just around the corner are the opulent British Columbia Parliament Buildings, which offer free guided tours. If you’ve got kids in tow, take them to the Royal British Columbia Museum, which has been luring visitors since 1886. For a breath of fresh air head up to Beacon Hill Park, or venture out of town to Butchart Gardens. From rosy camellias to double fringed tulips, there’s always something in bloom. Craigdarroch Castle is another highlight, offering a fascinating glimpse of old world Victoria.

    Welcome to the City of Gardens

    Thanks to its temperate sub-Mediterranean climate Victoria enjoys plenty of sunshine and receives some of the lowest annual rainfall levels on BC’s west coast. It also boasts one of Canada’s mildest winters, with clement temperatures and little snow. This has earned Victoria a reputation as the City of Gardens, with springtime blooms arriving as early as late February. During the summer, Victoria hosts a colorful calendar of festivals, shows, markets, and music. The atmosphere is electric, so why not stay local with unique Victoria vacation rentals in the heart of the city?

    Enjoy world class whale watching

    The city is located on Vancouver Island’s southern tip, making Victoria vacation rentals ideal for those seeking a picturesque getaway. It’s bounded by ocean on three sides, which means there are plenty of pebble beaches, granite cliffs, and hidden coves to explore. Its oceanfront setting also makes it a fantastic place to spot orcas, humpbacks, seals, and sea birds. If whale watching is on your agenda, Vancouver Island is home to multiple pods of resident orcas, which means trips run throughout the year.
