In the southwest corner of British Columbia
is the sunny municipality of Delta, British Columbia
, Canada..... where you can call your vacation home rental 'home'. Delta is bounded by the mighty Fraser River to the north, Boundary Bay and the US border to the south, Georgia Strait to the west, and the municipality of Surrey
to the east. Being surrounded on three sides by water, the lifestyle in Delta is rather relaxed. Historically Delta has been a farming and a fishing community comprised of three distinct communities: Ladner, North Delta, and Tsawwassen, where the BC Ferries depart. There are many golf courses, parks, restaurants and lots of shopping all within easy access of your condo rental accommodation
Historic Ladner is an active fishing village
where its 19th-century homes sit behind the dykes that hold the Fraser River at bay. The charming village core remains intact, complete with many restored heritage buildings within a stone’s throw of your vacation rentals. North Delta is home to the 10,000-acre Burn's Bog, one of the most important natural wonders in the province. Over 200 species of migratory birds use Burns Bog for resting
, staging, and breeding. Tsawwassen, known for its abundant sunshine, is the departure point for ferries bound for Vancouver Island
I and the Gulf Islands
within easy access of the condo rentals you choose as your your accommodations.
At the same time, a long frost-free growing season and rich alluvial soils make the region one of the best agricultural areas in Canada, producing a wide range of vegetables, berries and dairy products.
Anglers can catch salmon, trout, and numerous other species from the shores of Deas Island Regional Park steps away from your vacation rental accommodations. The Riverside picnic area is one of the most popular areas from which to fish.
There aren’t many places in the world where you can swim between two countries with such ease as at Boundary Bay near your vacation rentals
. A metal-scaffold tower marks the place where the 49th parallel slices across the sandy beach. In summer, when the bay is a bathtub of sun-warmed seawater, you can make like a dolphin as you skip back and forth between Canada and the United States. You will enjoy relaxing in your comfortable vacation rental or condo rental lodging with easy access to shopping, historical sites and outdoor adventure.
