The tiny home trend has exploded online in recent years, and BC is home to a slew of these adorable properties.
From a retro, diner-inspired one in Salmon Arm, to the adorable Salty Pear Casita on Salt Spring Island, here’s 8 to consider renting this summer.

Salty Pear Casita
We’re obsessed with this cozy camping spot, located in the heart of Ganges on Salt Spring Island.
The adjoining, slightly sci-fi looking wood sauna elevates this spot to a whole other level.
After an evening session, lounge in the hammock and gaze up at the stars from your own private deck.
Try the wood burning camper on for some additional ambiance. The Salty Pear Casita includes an attached kitchen, bedroom and separate bathroom.
Esk’et Tiny House on Alkali Lake
Esk’et Tiny House is a custom-crafted cabin at Esk’etemc First Nation, the traditional territory of the Esk’etemc people.
The big city will be a distant memory (at least for a few days) at this distant stay, which is an eight hour drive from Vancouver.
The warm and welcoming spot is definitely worth the trek, though: guests will find an outdoor hot tub under the stars, a fireplace and best of all, nature at your door step.
There’s two loft-style bedrooms making this 280 sq. foot spot a family option, too.
Padma Yurt, Cortes Island
The circular Padma Yurt isn’t quite as tiny as some of the others, but it is an experience in and of itself.
Get totally off-the-grid with this “glamping” experience: if you haven’t heard it before, the term yurt means portable, round tent.
Located on a moss bluff among the mountains and overlooking the ocean, this Cortes Island retreat has everything you need (bed, deck, sink) but no electricity.
All furniture inside is hand made.
Tiny Victoria House
Experience Victoria in a whole new way at this whimsical and rustic little house which boats a roof made of recycled tires.
Close to Elk Lake, visitors can enjoy the water for a summer swim, kayak or paddle board adventure in the Saanich Peninsula.
This adorable 100 sq. foot cedar-and-pine cabin is an exercise in creative spacing, with a loft bedroom, large windows, and a teeny kitchen (local eggs, fruit and other breakfast items are provided).
The bathroom and private shower are located outdoors.
Tiny House on the Ocean, Squamish
This self-described “funky” house has major summer camp vibes, but with a modern twist.
The tiny spot almost likes like a toy model at first glance, but it is, in fact real. Coming in at 8.5 x 20 feet, you have the option of sleeping on a queen mattress in the bedroom, or a futon in the living room.
We also love that the entire space — which includes a complete kitchen with fridge and bathroom — is covered in wood.
This cute spot is also located on a private beach.
Tize Tiny House, Roberts Creek
The modern Tize Tiny House is the perfect modern, woodsy spot to relax solo or with another person.
Located in Roberts Creek, this sweet escape is close also to Gibsons.
Interestingly, this spot has an extra separate room that’s used for massage therapy.
Space is maximized with a loft bed and compact bathroom. Visitors will be close to the ferry, Gibsons, the beach, and public transport.
Retro Solar Powered House, Salmon Arm
Diner vibes! This one felt right out of an episode of Riverdale with those red and white checkered floors.
Located in Salmon Arm, this solar powered gem is retro on the inside but totally modern on the inside.
Take in the stunning forrest views on the bar-style stools, sofa, or umbrella covered deck.
Peaceful Tiny Home, Squamish
The all-white decor is IG-worthy at this Squamish spot.
This compact tiny home can actually sleep five between the loft style bedroom, second room downstairs and living area.
The full kitchen, complete with a gas stove, comes stocked with a Vitamix and pantry essentials (there’s a BBQ, too).
The outdoor, covered space is perfection to enjoy the sun or the evening stars.
