There is just something undeniably special about floating homes and bed and breakfasts. They're warm, cozy, and just so inviting. This bed and breakfast Airbnb in Victoria, B.C., however, takes it to a whole new level because you'll be enjoying your bed and breakfast on the ocean.

The floating B&B is part of a larger floating village on Fisherman's Wharf, Victoria, so you can savour some spectacular views of the ocean from all directions.

The other float homes in the village look so adorable that you might just want to spend just spend the entire time gazing out at these colourful floating properties.

The entire area is renowned for the homes moored into the harbour. From local businesses to restaurants, all the structures are floating on water, and that's a phenomenal sight in and of itself.

It'll take you just fifteen minutes to get to Fisherman's Wharf from the Inner Harbour in Victoria.

The route will take you along the harbour and through the bustling downtown of the city, so you can get super familiar with the local setting.

The scenes of the ocean aren't too bad, either. But don't take our word for it — have a look at the photos and tell us you don't agree.

This Airbnb is stunning on its own. According to the listing's description, it's a "unique Floating B&B in the SEA with water views from every window."

Unlike most Airbnbs that just take care of the living arrangement and leave the food up to you, this one actually goes the extra mile and even provides your morning meals.

The breakfasts are provided at a "special cafe" just steps away from your float, and gluten-free options are also available.

Your room also comes with a tiny patio, where you can feast your eyes on the surrounding blue waters while you're sipping your morning coffee.

The entire home is just above a foot from the water's surface, so you're practically rocking on a hammock the entire time.

And if you feel like you want to walk on land for a bit, you can just hail a water taxi to take you to the mainland. The ride will take you ten minutes, as mentioned in the listing.

Water taxis and floating homes? If that doesn't sound like Canada's version of Venice, we don't know what it is.

Other amenities included are a fridge, WiFi connection, heating, and so much more.
