Vancouver's Gulf Islands Accommodations

Find vacation rentals on this chain of islands that lies between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia in the Strait of Georgia. The islands can be divided into two groups, the Northern Gulf Islands and the Southern Gulf Islands. There are over 200 islands included in the Gulf Islands with an active ferry service to the largest ones to make island hopping more accessible. Smaller islands can only be accessed by private boat or seaplane. There is accommodation available throughout the Gulf Islands.

The Northern Islands include Denman, Cortes, Hornby, Texada, Quadra, Comorant and Malcolm. Regular ferry service runs to Denman, Cortes, Hornby and Quadra. Half of Denman Island is covered with dense forest. The other half has lakes, parks, orchards and 1100 full time residents. The small town has a thriving artistic community and is also famous for its summer dances and beautiful scenery. Find a vacation rental on Denman Island for a real tranquil holiday.

Hornby is one of the Gulf Island’s most popular tourist destinations. Be sure to check out the famous Tribune Beach, dubbed “Little Hawaii.” Tourists also enjoy wineries, art galleries, hiking the great outdoors, mountain biking, and water sports like kayaking and scuba diving. Horby Island swells in size during the summer months making accommodations hard to come by. Book a holiday home or condo rental early to ensure you don’t miss out on this treasure.

The Southern Gulf Islands include Pender, Mayne, Galiano, Thetis, Gabriola, Mudge, Saturna, and Salt Spring. Salt Spring Island is the largest and most populated of all the Gulf Islands. It is known for its unspoiled natural scenery, forested hiking trails and tranquil beaches. Salt Spring Island accommodations include resorts, bed and breakfasts, condo rentals, cottage lodging, campgrounds and vacation home rentals. The dining options are endless and there is a very active arts and music scene. The population of Salt Spring Island is over 10,000 with three main villages.

Pender Island was split in two in 1903 when a canal was dug down the middle, creating North Pender and South Pender. The North is where the majority of the Island’s 2400 residents live. Here you will find the town center, several residential subdivisions and the ferry terminal. South Pender is sparsely populated with visitors coming here for the outdoor activities and wildlife. Much of the south island is designated as a national park. It has several hiking trails, beaches and one resort.

For your next vacation, plan on exploring the Gulf Islands. Owner Direct has a great selection of vacation rentals for your choosing.
