Laura, Dan & Justin, Vancouver/Montreal

"As an '80s pop-icon once sung, "Ooh, heaven is a place on earth!" She must have been fortuitous enough to know of "The Perch" 30 years before we arrived! We've had a fantastic 10 days of fun in the sun and showers, cooking great meals, building big log fires, soaking in the tub and finding our 100th Cache in Canada (check out to join in the fun). Thanks for re-arranging our visit last minute when we were delayed by Eyjafjallajokull Volcano closing UK airspace for almost a week!"
Rich & Lou, London, UK

Paul & Victoria, New Westminster

"A little getaway for a mom and her two daughters. We left the men and children at home and enjoyed the beautiful PEACE of The Perch. Bubbly on the patio, feeding peanuts to our little squirrel buddy, fireside laughs and even a jellyfish encounter at the water. We had a blast and enjoyed every moment."
Erin, Lindsay & Connie

"You were right - this is truly an awesome place. I will definitely be back some day. We three loved every moment. There was no way of leaving to go out for dinner. The Perch is such a delight to all our senses - Thank-you!"

"Thank you very much! The Perch was perfect, beautiful and brought us into nature. We were up here for a wedding and couldn't have picked a better location. We will be back to sit in that tub and spend cozy nights near the fire place! Thank-you, truly a lovely cabin."

"What a relaxing, most wonderful way to spend our honeymoon. We enjoyed a couple hikes, kayaking, visited the local galleries and treated ourselves to some nice meals in and also went out to several of the restaurants. We look forward to trips back to The Sunshine Coast for anniversaries. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"
Jodi & Jim, Madison, Wisconsin

"Thank you for this tranquil retreat. We will miss the luxury of abundant space, green views and the deep sleep that follows a soak in a deep tub. We had a memorable meal at Feastro in Davis Bay and look forward to lazily grazing our way back down to Langdale having adopted a slower pace."
Randi & Tim, Vancouver, B.C.

"The Perch - a perfect getaway for our 4th anniversary. We couldn't have asked for a more glorious relaxation. Truly loved this enchanting place. We'll be back."
Rob & Maribel, Burnaby, B.C.

"Thank you for sharing The Perch with us! It's a beautiful house, perfect amount of space inside & out! The surrounds are so peaceful. We will most certainly come and want to stay here again. A perfect getaway from the city and yet not too far."
Matt & Sarah, Vancouver, B.C.

"Wonderful. Thank-you!"
Jen & Anders, New Westminster, B.C.

"Fantastic vacation home... one of the nicest we've ever stayed at. We loved the local hikes and the food. We hope to return someday."
Rick & Cynthia, Carlton, Oregon

"The location, the layout, the bath, the fireplace, the view, the smells and sounds are only a few of the best things about this place. We came, we conquered Mt. Daniel (no easy feat), scared off a bear cub looking for food in the trash (good thing they're bear proof) and saved a golden crown kinglet (look it up in the "Birds of Coastal BC" book in the entertainment unit) that flew into the window and became dazed. We even saw a deer hopping about as if it's legs were made of springs. Aaah... what an awesome week, but it's time to go now. Thanks!"
Sally & Charles, Maple Ridge, B.C.

"Wonderful again!!! See you next time."
Dave & Pascal, Vancouver, B.C.
