"Moon Dance is everything we hoped for and more. The location, the scenery, the water, the trees, the perch, the attention to detail, all the special little things with which you have created an ultimate west coast retreat. My new bride and I enjoyed this so much. We'll be back to sample each season here."
Rob & Christine, Tsawwassen, B.C.

"Adriana suggested that we come up here for Valentine's Day, seeing as we'd enjoyed our honeymoon at the Cabin so much. It is absolutely wonderful here! The architectural design, the beautiful wood everywhere, the gorgeous deck w/view, and (what really sets your properties apart for me), the beautiful art throughout. You've put as much thought, time, effort & heart into these 'homes-away-from-home' it's just beautiful here. We're already making plans to come back in summer! Cheers,"
Michael & Adriana

Thanks Kathleen & Brent for your so thoughtful attention to all details, not to mention the superb choices of all works of art singing from the walls. This place of peace and brilliance will keep us tuned until our next time."

"Just a quick note to thank you for a lovely few days! We really enjoyed our stay!! Like so many who have stayed before us, from the moment you walk in you feel so relaxed and comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed cooking in the kitchen...we ate in except for one lunch at the pub in Garden Bay where we rented a kayak for Doug through Alpha Adventures. The trek to the water with the kayaks was breathtaking...literally! LOL We certainly got some exercise! We saw so many jelly fish in the water...that was a surprise!! Incentive to stay in the kayak for sure!! We loved our paddling...saw deer...wonderful birds...it was a most pleasant trip!! We met Motoko...her gallery is....inspiring. She is so wonderful. Had to come home with a print!! Will remind us of the time spent at The Perch and encourage a return visit!! Thank you so much!"
Linda & Doug

"A quick note to say that we had a truly wonderful experience at The Perch, it was the perfect place to unwind. You have thought of everything necessary to accommodate your guests and allow for them to quickly feel relaxed and 'at home'. We are both employed at UBC and we will certainly recommend The Perch to our colleagues and friends. Well done on the construction and decor and thanks for providing a great service in a time when the finer details are often missing. Best wishes,"
