Updated Dec 12, 2016

Victoria, British Colombia, is known as the ‘City of Gardens’ and it prides itself on its nature. The city seems to have a collective interest in gardening and an appreciation of nature. Museums and old buildings line the streets too, giving the city and its houses a distinct rustic vibe. The listings provided here are pretty magical and magazine worthy, and are fairytale-like listings. Take your pick; whether you like timeless Tudor-style houses or something modern and chic, these Airbnb vacation rentals are meant for taking the time to stop and smell the flowers:
