Beautiful British Columbia. The Best Place on Earth. Splendor Without Diminishment. If British Columbia's slogans sound like they're bragging, it's hard to blame them. A lush slice of the Pacific Northwest teeming with moss-draped forests, sun-speckled islands, and dramatic mountain ranges, B.C.'s natural beauty is impossible to deny - and impossible to resist. Fortunately, our British Columbia vacation rentals are perfectly situated to discover this magical province's alluring secrets - time and time again.
British Columbia is the westernmost province in the country of Canada, its 365,000 square miles bordered by the Yukon to the north, Alberta to the east, and three US states, including verdant Washington, to the south. Carpeted with ancient forests and glacier-capped mountains, much of B.C. remains pristine wilderness. Yet its major cities - Vancouver, Victoria, Kamloops, and Kelowna - have also evolved into some of the most popular destinations in Canada, attracting visitors the world over with their progressive attitudes, world-class culinary scenes, and next-door proximity to some of North America's most stunning landscapes.
For British Columbians, the outdoors are a way of life - and it's easy to see why. Head to Tofino for the surfing, Squamish for rock climbing, and, well, everywherefor hiking. Skiers and snowboarders will find a veritable wonderland to explore, from the snowglobe slopes of Whistler Blackcomb, which hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics, to Kelowna's Big White Ski Resort. And there's plenty for those who prefer to enjoy nature at a slower pace - from whale-watching on the Howe Sound to scenic drives along the Sea-to-Sky Highway.
Our British Columbia vacation rentals have more than scenery to offer, however. Vancouver, the largest city in the province and the third-largest in the country, is a diverse cultural hub that combines brewpubs, urban parks, public markets, and food from every corner of the globe into a single mountain-ringed city. The enchanting European city of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, is home to the world-famous Butchart Flower Gardens, while the Okanagan Valley is a local favorite for its mild weather and miles of wineries.
Whether you're coming for the mountains, the culture, or the food, our British Columbia vacation homes are the perfect gateway to this captivating Canadian province. Book today!
