Isolated from the Lower Mainland by the Coast Mountains and the Strait of Georgia, the aptly named Sunshine Coast offers a decidedly different dynamic than BC's big cities—and different weather! It's practically the Southern California of British Columbia, with the majority of its days dry and sunny.

Two hours from the hustle and bustle of Vancouver and perched on Pender Harbour amidst five acres of Douglas firs, red cedars, and arbutus trees, the Painted Boat Resort "takes the waterfront vacation to a new level," says Sunset magazine. "Kayak the wild shoreline, swim in a lake, jump on a mountain bike, or get sprayed by Chatterbox Falls in Princess Louisa Inlet—then kick back in the infinity pool or the hot tub."

Decamp for two nights to a main-level, two-bedroom villa with a water view ($498), equipped with a granite countertop kitchen stocked with stainless-steel appliances, a balcony with a grill, dining area, complimentary parking and wireless Internet, and more.

Armed with a four-hour kayak rental, explore the protected waters and islands and then take a hike in Smugglers Cove Provincial Park or Skookumchuck Narrows Provincial Park. The next day, cycle around town, stopping at galleries along the way.

Later, utilize your included admission to the Spa Garden, a tranquil oasis with a sauna, outdoor glacial rain shower, multi-jet hot pool with massaging waterfall, warm saltwater pool, and fire pit, open on Fridays through Sundays. Treatments are available for an additional fee and include a number of body treatments and massages in addition to facials and nail services.

For dinner, pick up some Dungeness crab, fresh fish, and seasonal produce in town and create a completely local dish in your villa's full kitchen. And while you indulge, watch the ever-present sun set over the water.

  • "There's quite a bit to do, from hiking, running (great trails for cross-country running or biking), paddle boarding, kayaking, or even relaxing and enjoying the spa, pool, and gym."
