Overview

Sunshine Coast A Cabin Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, open floor plan, 1 bathroom, accessible with roll in shower, sleeps 4

Moon Dance Vacation Rentals offers The Perch. Moon Dance Perch is a secluded water view and waterfront retreat on the beautiful tidal basin of Oyster Bay, in Pender Harbour on the Sunshine Coast.

Explore local trails, read a book or watch eagles and ravens fish at high tide.

Travel just a few minutes to discover local artists' studios or find yourself at one of many freshwater lakes.

Four Seasons of Activities: kayak, canoe and snowshoe rentals, relaxing spas, artist studios, Madeira Park shopping, a range of hiking trails, golf, scuba diving, horseback riding, fishing and mountain biking.

At the end of a busy day retreat to the bedroom, and with your favorite music and candlelight, enjoy a soak in the tub for two, just steps from the bed! Serenity!

The Perch: Moon Dance Perch is a modern linear design, nestled into a ridge of rock with water and sunset views. Fully handicapped accessible, the open concept is ideal for a couple but also has a queen size sofa bed.

Full of light and custom designed to be in harmony with its surroundings, you will have the feeling of being outside from every space. Enjoy generous servings of the surrounding nature, flora and fauna.

The Perch features striking variegated bamboo floors, a soaring gull-wing roof line and a wood burning fireplace. The bathroom offers a two-person shower with multiple heads, or if you prefer, have a candlelit soak in the tub for two just steps from the bed - complete with intimate views!

Breakfast on the sunny and protected back deck surrounded by the moss and lichen garden, or dine perched above Oyster Bay in the tree tops, while enjoying the sunset over Mount Daniel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

...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 lokking for food in the trash (good thing they are bearproof!) and saved a Golden Crown Kinglet that was dazed after hitting a window (looked it up in the bird book provided at Moon Dance). We even saw deer hopping about as if their legs were made of springs. Aaaah...What an awesome week but now it's time to go. Thanks!

Peaceful

The Perch was amazing. A beautiful and well appointed cabin and completely wheelchair accessible. The surroundings were very tranquil and it was a great little spot for a getaway. Definitely will be putting it on my list of places to return to.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do no justice. The Perch is beyond amazing; it is well maintained and well equipped. Kathleen made us feel very welcomed and made sure we had everything that we needed. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to anyone!

perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

My BF and I booked this cottage as a weekend getaway for Valentine's Day. It was exactly what we needed - seclusion from the city! We had an emergency come up and was not able to go for the full weekend however, Kathleen and Brent were kind enough to give us a credit! Which we will definitely use. There is no doubt that we will be coming back! I highly highly recommend this place. It has the perfect home away from home feel. You will not be disappointed.

Perfect Destination for a Relaxing Honeymoon Away

  • 5 of 5

The Perch is an amazing honeymoon location. If you are like us and you want to escape to a secluded mountainous retreat after all the hustle of planning and holding a wedding, this is the best possible location. The cabin is very nice with everything you can think of that you will need for your stay. Just 10 minutes away in Madeira Park is a nice market with plenty of choices. In town you will also find various delightful eateries. Every kind of activity you could want from hiking to kayaking is readily available within 30 minutes. I wish we could have stayed longer.

Amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Perch for a week and spent the time running, kayaking and cycling. We loved every minute. The Perch was a wonderful oasis to return to each night - it is peaceful, well-equipped, beautiful and very private. The open design makes having guests difficult, but we were thrilled with this limitation. The expanse of windows allows a full appreciation of the BC beauty which surrounds the Perch. Kathleen & Brent were great hosts and a source of valuable information about the area. We are already planning our return trip next year...

Owner's Response: Andrew and Bina were a delight to have here at Moon Dance. We are thrilled to know they enjoyed themselves well enough to be entertaining thoughts of returning. No doubt about it - they used every day of their stay to it's fullest while they were here. taking full advantage of the wealth of what the area has to offer. We look forward to seeing them again!!!

Great weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property! We attended a wedding in Madeira Park so the location was excellent. We didn't have a lot of time to spend at the Perch but the time we spent there was very peaceful. From a disability standpoint, the property is open concept making it easy to navigate in a wheelchair. Bathroom was also well planned with appropriate grab-bars. Thanks for a great stay. We would recommend to anyone looking for a quiet weekend away!
