Summer is fast approaching and now is your chance to start booking these Airbnbs for you and a whole team.
Luckily, there are some extremely stunning beach houses you can rent just a short drive from Vancouver, BC, and all your friends can hang out there.
From lakeside beaches and oceanfront properties to private retreats, there’s a mix of everything to make your vacation dreams come true.
If you invite friends to join you, that also means splitting the cost of the Airbnb!
Of course, the list also includes rentals with huge lawns for all those summer activities. Anyone up for a game of Spikeball?
