About Victoria - This picture-postcard provincial capital was long touted as North America’s most English city. Victoria is a unique blend of old world charm and new world experiences with brightly painted bohemian shops, coffee bars, and innovative restaurants that would make any city proud. As an island destination on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, Victoria offers visitors an escape from the hurried world and beams with ambiance. Find the perfect accommodation with Owner Direct Vacation Rentals, and find your ideal home base to explore the city and surrounding areas. From lavish and luxurious, to charming and convenient, browse our lodging listings to experience Victoria your way.

Where to Stay & Why - Whether you are looking for a condo rental downtown or a full vacation home for the whole family, our accommodations sleep 2 people and more. Enjoy spacious rooms and beds with water views plus quality linens, sufficient drawers, and closets to put your bags away and be at home during your stay. There’s also a bathroom (maybe two or more, if you want) with comfy bathrobes and towels, soaps, and shampoo. In the comfortable living room, cozy up next to a warm inviting fire in the evenings where you can enjoy a selection of books or DVD’s to play in the large screen TV with an excellent sound system. The kitchen is fully equipped with every convenience and the pantry is equipped with spices, oils, and condiments for your cooking pleasure. The relaxed dining space leads to your private patio with a BBQ for your culinary adventures. Some of the vacation rentals even have a beautiful garden with flowers, herbs, vegetables, and fruit trees. Sit on one of the decks and bask in the morning sun as you watch planes, ferries, and smaller boats come and go. Other amenities can include an office area, washer, and dryer, air conditioning, internet, phone, cable, and parking.

What to See & Do - Victoria is home to some of the most exhilarating scenery: there’s an ocean or mountain (or both) vista around every corner and the city’s famous flower garden. Whether your taste runs towards golfing, hiking, biking, and fishing, or you’re more the shopping, dining, and theatre type, Victoria has you covered. Read on our Victoria Travel Guide for things to see & do while visiting.

Where to Eat & Drink - Famous for tangy, chewy baguettes and rye country boules out of wood-fired over, head on over to Fol Epi. For dinner, try Agrius for their seasonal dishes such as roasted brassica shoots. Inspired by old-time speakeasies, Little Jumbo feels both historic and thoroughly fresh, with its constantly changing cocktail list and shareable plates. Perro Negro is the perfect hideaway to pick to nibble on tapas such as croquettes, octopus with chorizo, and Spanish boquerones. Then move on to the Bodega for classic cocktails like a whiskey sour or Negroni, reinvented with sherry. For a more eclectic Victoria experience, check out the classy restaurants that surround Chinatown, offering interesting west-coast fusion and Asian dishes.

How to Get Here & Getting Around - Getting here is one of the best things about Victoria. It’s accessible from the rest of the island by roads and from the mainland by taking a ferry with your vehicle. Whether by ferry meandering past the Gulf of San Juan Islands, by floatplane (try to travel at least one leg this way) or on a whale-watching boat, getting to Victoria is a memorable experience.

Victoria is a beautiful place and walkable. The Inner Harbour and downtown core are best explored on foot, but there are several other types of transportation - from horse-drawn carriage to double-decker bus, take your pick depending on your preferred pace. Condo rentals in the downtown area are perfect for this.

When to Go - The best time to visit is March to May and September to November. The region sees some of the country’s mildest weather and the driest summers, so while you might experience a light drizzle here and there, plan on comfortable temperatures in the spring and fall. Summer is by far the most popular time to visit thanks to numerous festivals that take place.

REVIEWS: "Not only was our stay at the Cottage an impeccable experience, but we now consider the owner part of our family!!! The house is gorgeously styled, all of your needs are met and anticipated, and the location is the best that Victoria has to offer. You are 2 blocks away from all of your needs: shopping at Cook St Village, nature at Beacon Hill Park and a breathtaking view at the ocean. Plus, the downtown core is only a 10 minute walk from here. The property is magical, spotless and the customer service excellent. I wish I could live there all the time!!! " B. Prema "A gem of a rental. Thoroughly charming. The house is gorgeous and sweetly decorated. It was the most comfortable rental we've had. The kitchen had everything we needed. The Owner was the perfect hostess - involved enough to help, but never imposing and extremely respectful of our privacy. The apartment is PERFECTLY located - we could walk everywhere, but when we decided to leave town, it was very easy to get in and out of the city. The bottle of wine was a lovely touch that made us feel very well-taken care of our first night (when we arrived later than expected). I highly recommend this property to anyone visiting." Nicole

Victoria News and Events

Hello BC: The capital city of British Columbia, Victoria boasts many historic buildings and some of the most fascinating museums in Western Canada. The city benefits from one of Canada's mildest climates, which allows its residents to pursue outdoor pleasures all year round. Victoria enjoys some of the country's most exhilarating scenery: there's an ocean or mountain vista around every corner, while the city's flower gardens are famous all over the world. Whether your taste runs to golfing, hiking, biking and fishing or you're more the shopping, dining and theatre type, there are no end of delights for you and your family in Victoria – the city was included in the Top 10 Family Vacations in Canada in the TripAdvisor 2011 Travelers' Choice awards. Established in 1843 by James Douglas as a fort for the Hudson's Bay Company, Victoria's British ancestry is apparent in the double-decker buses, horse-drawn carriages, formal gardens, and tearooms. The city is now a cosmopolitan centre with a lively entertainment scene and a wonderful array of attractions.

Official site of Tourism British Columbia: The waters surrounding Victoria make for excellent whale watching and wildlife viewing. Orcas (killer whales) are most frequently sighted, but humpback, minke and grey whales can also be seen, along with harbour seals, Steller and California sea lions, bald eagles, and harbour and Dall’s porpoises. Many Victoria whale-watching tours leave right from downtown, so it's easy to combine an afternoon of whale watching with shopping or golfing. Nearby Sidney and Sooke are also popular whale-watching spots, and some tours travel to the Victoria area from Vancouver.

Attractions in Victoria are educational, beautiful and inspiring. Known as “The Garden City” due to the abundance of gardens and city parks, Victoria also has an impressive selection of historic sites and heritage architecture. See floral displays year-round or wander through a castle. Museums in Victoria cover everything from Aboriginal culture to science and nature. This is also the home of the Royal BC Museum and the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia.

Vancouver Island’s biggest city – Victoria, British Columbia – gets a positive knee-jerk reaction for those who’ve been, usually talking about its coastal beauty, retiree-filled hotels, and a very English air. But with that, the story too often stops.
Yeah, there’s plenty more than that. On a recent stop, I decided to take in Canada’s fittest city on two wheels, and found a city – hilly but manageable – that’s simply more fun when seen by bike. Here’s a few things to consider on how to bike in Victoria.
If that seems like too much work – and it is a fair share – you can always go by scooter. If it’s not enough, brace yourself for fun paths out of the city: Lochside Trail (to Sidney) and the Galloping Goose Trail (to Sooke). There are a couple of central places to rent bikes or mopeds, including Cycle BC Rentals, a block east of Inner Harbor. The simple free map from the visitor’s center is enough to navigate the trip.
