Vancouver's Gulf Islands Accommodations

Find a Vacation Rental Home on Vancouver's Gulf Islands, British Columbia, Canada.

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.

    Private Waterfront Cabin

    Quadra Island: Cabin
    • 1 BDR
    • 1 BA
    • Sleeps 2
    • #248109
    150 to 225 CAD/night Paypal
    Our cabin is beautifully situated on Quadra Island, BC, the largest of the Discovery Islands on the stunning West Coast of Canada. Visitors come in all seasons, drawn by the breathtaking coastal scenery and many recreational opportunities offered by this small group of islands located along the Inside Passage seaway between Vancouver Island and mainland British Columbia. Come, treat yourself to a comfortable stay in privately tucked away Cabin. Watch seals play and eagles soar from your living room or deck. Hike local trails, beach comb or take a whale-watching tour. Relax in your private hot tub on the deck or curl up with a good book. The options to enjoy are many. The results: Deep relaxation, rejuvenation and reconnection with nature, with a loved one, with yourself. Completed in 2015, the modern 600 sq ft Cabin is privately situated on our 3.6 acre property. Perched some 50 feet above the waters of Unkak Cove, the Cabin offers a stunning panoramic view of the cove, the forest opposite and Grouse Island in Quathiaski Cove. At night, the lights of Campbell River can be seen twinkling in the distance. The Cabin was mindfully designed as a comfortable get-away for two, with one bedroom with queen sized bed, a three piece bath with sensuous rainshower, fully appointed kitchen with dining nook overlooking the cove, and an ample living room boasting a gas fireplace for coziness and ambiance in any season. The deck overlooking the cove is furnished with a bistro set for al fresco dining, lounge chairs and your own private soft shell hot tub. The subtle deck lighting extends your enjoyment of this inviting outdoor living space well into the warm summer evenings. Winter is perhaps the most dramatic season to visit the cabin. Watch the wind-whipped white caps roll up the cove from your cozy living room perch or steamy hot tub on the deck. The winter cove provides a favourite safe haven for a wide variety of sea birds for hours of your bird-watching entertainment. We have provided binoculars for your wildlife watching pleasure from the comfort of your living room or deck. Cell reception is good in the Cabin, although we highly recommend you switch your phone “off” as much as possible to fully benefit from “getting away from it all” in this special, quiet spot among the trees and mossy bluffs above the cove. As your hosts, we will greet you on your arrival, give you the keys, provide you with a short tour of the cabin's amenities, answer any questions, indicate points of interest and show you the supply of brochures and maps provided for your use. If your stay is longer than four nights, we will arrange a time to come and service the hot tub mid-visit. We live on the property and are always available to answer questions or assist in any way. However, our practise is to give you privacy to enjoy your visit as you wish. We will provide detailed directions and travel options directly to you, our guests, as soon as we have your contact details and a confirmed booking.
