Make holiday rental house or apartment in Vancouver, Canada your home away from home

Right in the south of British Columbia, Canada, Vancouver is a vibrant city of historic landmarks, tranquil parks and magnificent shopping streets. There is so much to see and do in Vancouver that tourist information is usually split into two sections; cultural holidays and outdoor activity holidays. It is very easy to tale a day trip from a house to rent in Vancouver into the glorious nature of British Colombia, where Vancouver wildlife holidays and skiing and snowboarding breaks thrive.

Things to do in Vancouver, Canada

Vancouver is a very lively city to visit, and there is always a huge amount to see and do from an apartment in Vancouver. If you take a Vancouver apartment, you can be guaranteed that there are enough shopping streets, world class restaurants and some of the finest bars and nightclubs in the whole of Canada. The Queen Elizabeth Theatre, Vancouver Art Gallery and Vancouver Maritime Museum are among the best attractions to explore when you arrive at your self catering Vancouver accommodation for the first time. The Vancouver tourist information office will have all the listings for performances, events and festivals in Vancouver.

Vancouver is surrounded on three sides by water and on the fourth by a huge mountain range known as the Coast Mountains. There are breath-taking views in every direction, and wherever you take holiday rental housing in Vancouver, your first views in the morning will certainly set you up for a full day of activity. There are a great range of sporting events possible in the city itself, including tennis, beach volleyball and cycling. There are also a range of golf courses surrounding Vancouver, but play if often difficult as the awe-inspiring views are more than a little distracting!

There are beaches around three sides of Vancouver, with plenty of golden sand on which to find a good spot to grab some sun. Kitsilano Beach is the Venice Beach of Vancouver, acting as a huge hub of activity during the summer. If you would prefer a slightly quieter beach from your Vancouver apartment, for either relaxation of beach fishing, head to Jericho Beach or Spanish Banks. Vancouver wildlife holidays are excellent. Whales, sea lions, dolphins and eagles can all be seen off the Vancouver coast on a regular basis.

Although the city itself is rarely covered in snow, skiing and snowboarding in Vancouver’s mountains is some of the best downhill skiing in Canada. The local resorts of Cypress, Mount Seymour and Grouse Mountain offer absolutely sensational skiing and snowboarding in Vancouver, and the world famous resorts of Whistler and Blackcomb are just 2 hours from Vancouver apartments.

Weather in Vancouver, Canada

During the summer months, daily temperatures are blissfully warm, with daily temperatures reaching between 23 and 28˚C, perfect weather for the beach. In winter, although Vancouver is the mildest spot in Canada, conditions are still very cold, and layers are vital!

Travel to Vancouver, Canada

Vancouver Airport (YVR) is located just 15km from the city centre. Luckily for those of us trying to get to an apartment or house to rent in Vancouver from the UK, there are direct flights to Vancouver leaving from London, Dublin (DUB), Glasgow (GLA) and Manchester (MAN), meaning that we can be settling into Vancouver accommodation within 12 hours of leaving home.
