"Traveling times have changed recently so we've all had to adapt. We usually fly somewhere this time of year no such luck though. Thank God for Kathleen and Moondance, we're so lucky to have access to natural beauty so close by here in BC. Clearly it's beautiful and everything looks perfect but for me it was nice to experience an Air BnB that is exactly how it was described. Too often we've been disappointed with places we've rented before because of inaccurate information, this is not the case with this architectural gem. Everything is as advertised, it is sparkling clean on arrival, the scenery is second to none and it's absolutely perfect for disconnecting from reality. I recommend bringing all your supplies on arrival so you don't have to leave until checkout day. Grateful for the experience. Thank you."

"We had a wonderful time at Moon Dance, thank you again! We sat out on the Cabin deck both evenings until nearly 11pm. There was not a breath of wind and the bay was like glass. On Wednesday night we saw some strange ripples reflecting the moonlight out on the bay. Something large, two things in fact, were moving quickly just below the surface. As we watched one of them veered and approached the cabin at high speed, getting remarkably close. It created a wake that had small waves lapping against the shoreline. Shortly after it passed, we heard a brief ‘huff’, like something taking a breath of air. It was probably a couple of seals chasing salmon snacks. Surreal, a bit spooky, but very cool."

"This place is gorgeous! It's absolutely isolated and wonderful for a romantic retreat or fun weekend with friends. The Perch, which is the cabin I stayed in, is quite modern and spacious. There is art everywhere and the views are stunning. Kitchen is fully equipped and the bbq works great. This place is a dream and the hosts are incredible people."

"A beautiful sanctuary, in a perfect location. Kathleen was a perfect host. The home is spotless and the bed is super comfortable. The windows and views are gorgeous. Kitchen has everything you need and the standing bathtub is spa-like."

"What a place! Very quiet, very comfy living space, and very clean. Sparkling clean & stylish and Kathleen was a responsive host. We would be happy to come back anytime of year!"

"Beautiful setting. Owners have thought of everything! Lovely experience. Would definitely recommend."

"We got here a couple hours ago... beautiful! I was telling my wife how much I love the design and the small details such as low windows... I trade lumber for a living also... and prefab and CLT timber is the future... then I went to your site and found 'the history of moon dance'. What an awesome story and read! Very much enjoying ourselves here!"

"Kathleen and Brent's well appointed and spacious cabin was the perfect getaway. Located a short drive from Pender Harbour where you can pick up supplies or go for a meal. Good hiking and kayaking are close by or just sit on the deck and watch the tide go in & out. The landscaping is beautiful too - you won't want to leave."

"This is a wonderful and spacious cabin in a beautiful location. It is well appointed with comfortable furniture, lovely lighting, and so much beautiful west coast art. And when the sparkling sun reflects off the water at high tides the moon mobile in the living room really does dance. It's mesmerizing. And the bathtub very comfortably fits two! If you can tear yourself away from the deck, there are great hikes in the area, and Ruby Lake is also very pleasant. The hosts were lovely and communication was excellent. The village of Madeira Park is a very short drive away, and is very cute. This is a wonderful place."

"We stayed at the Moon Dance Perch for Christmas holidays. What a lovely experience! No words. Fully equipped with every detail, super-comfy, sparkly clean and excellent surroundings. For sure, very quiet. The fireplace the best. We did not leave the cabin during our stay. Relax!! reading, watching movies, playing board games, etc... It exceeded our expectations! If you want to be ’disconnected’ this is the right place!"

"We stayed for 4 nights. Very relaxing place. The cabin is super clean with everything you need and more."

"This was a perfect getaway for our family of three. It is a beautiful drive from the ferry as the Cabin is located in an amazing part of Sunshine Coast. The cabin is in the woods, the water is few steps away; a serene place for reading, writing, swimming, or just relaxing on the nice terrace. Watching the changing tide made the stay that much more magical. The house had everything we needed. Kathleen was a very kind and helpful host. We highly recommend this place and will definitely come back!"

"Charming and comfortable art-filled cabin with a fabulous covered veranda to take in the deadly quiet of the tidal bay. Not a sandy beach, but nevertheless a very peaceful private oasis. If you are looking for the chance to decompress this is a wonderful spot to do it. Terrific wood-fired stove to enjoy, and the little things are thoughtfully looked after. My husband and I relaxed completely! The owners are a treat to deal with..."

"The Perch (and its nearby companion the Cabin) are the ideal place to escape from the hubbub. Nestled in the forest with peekaboo glimpses of Oyster Bay and Mt Daniel, it is quiet and peaceful. Absolutely beautiful in the fall. The Perch has a well-equiped kitchen, a spacious living and dining area, and a cosy bedroom area with a large tub that you can relax in forever. The internet service is fast so unashamedly binging Netflix on the couch while the fall rains came down was perfect. Thanks to Kathleen and Brent for a stress-free stay."
Anthony, Vancouver, BC

"We LOVED our stay in every way. Charming and cozy building, incredibly lovely and helpful hosts, stunning environment and ample opportunity to spend time in nature. We hope to be back soon. So I am leaving a good review but I hope not too many people find it because we do want to come back easily ;) But in all seriousness, I don't know how someone could stay here and not want to move right in."

"The Perch is a perfect place for a quiet getaway, it is a very private setting, surrounded by nature, a tidal bay adjoins the property and there are water glimpses from the deck. The cottage is modern, in excellent condition and very well maintained and equipped. We were impressed by the architecture, the soft furnishings and art work. It has a functional layout, with a fireplace and a bathtub in the bedroom. The deck is a sun porch and benefits from the sun into the late evening. There is a propane barbecue on the deck, so al fresco dining is a highlight."
James, North Vancouver, BC

"The Perch is clean, well appointed and pretty much perfect! We were able to see the reflection of the full moon on the treetops across the water. Beautiful and quiet. Lovely time, we will visit again and again."

"This cozy cabin is a great place to stay if you are looking for somewhere to go to get away from it all. It is nestled in the woods surrounded by beautiful trees with awesome mountain and water views. It is very private, quiet and tranquil. The cabin is clean, comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. All you have to do is sit back and relax and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you! If this sounds like something that you are looking for, then I would highly recommend. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again."

"Once you've found the perfect holiday home, it's always a dilemma whether to keep the secret to yourself or enthusiastically share it with others. The climate at the Sunshine Coast, the location of the holiday home under shady trees directly at the sea, the facilities but also the architecture of the holiday home, the peace and infrastructure in the area (restaurants, shopping, destinations...), no matter what you look at. It's just perfect. We would like to stay here forever."

"The Perch is an amazing getaway place. Quiet, clean, fully stocked, and beautiful paintings. Only missing is a complimentary wine! But overall it is a magical place."
Diane

"The Moondance Perch is the perfect place to forget about everything you have to deal with at home. With the spacious deck and the stylish decorated house - there is all you need. It's so calm and out in the pure nature. We couldn't imagine a better accommondation during our stay at Madeira Park. Will definitely recommend it to everyone! :) Many thanks to K & B for making our stay so enjoyable. :)"
