Wake up with a view of the ocean at these Vancouver Island vacation rentals

Known for its mild climate and wild, untamed beaches, Vancouver Island has a multitude of outdoor activities on offer all year round including surfing in the winter. These vacation rentals are located in the heart of the island’s wildness, with each boasting an ocean view. If you’re lucky—and patient—you may catch a glimpse of commuting orcas swimming along the shoreline, eagles diving after fish, or black bears lumbering through the woods.

If wildlife isn’t your thing, head to Cowichan Bay, a 45-minute drive north of Victoria. The surrounding area is flush with wineries. Get in a round of 18 at the public golf courses near the island’s southern tip. Or visit one of 40 craft breweries dotted around the island’s lower half.

Whether you’re travelling solo, or with family and friends, Vancouver Island has an adventure for everyone.

Located on the east side of Vancouver Island, this vacation rental has 1,600 feet of private shoreline. Inside is an open concept design with hardwood floors and a stone fireplace. Spend the evenings in the outdoor hot tub soaking in the ocean view.
