Cabin Holiday Rental
Moon Dance Perch and Moon Dance Cabin are secluded waterview and waterfront vacation rentals on the beautiful tidal basin of Oyster Bay. Guests have experienced salmon runs and black bear in the fall, elk and deer in the winter and a symphony of ducks, geese and other waterfowl year round – all drawn by the inter-tidal variety of Oyster Bay! The 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 romantic couple escaping but also includes a queen size sofa bed. See our listing and photos for Moon Dance Cabin as well! Moon Dance Cabin is a classic west coast design with a wrap-around porch, just steps from the water and nestled into a private clearing of rockery gardens and a forest...Moon Dance Perch and Moon Dance Cabin are secluded waterview and waterfront vacation rentals on the beautiful tidal basin of Oyster Bay. Guests have experienced salmon runs and black bear in the fall, elk and deer in the winter and a symphony of ducks, geese and other waterfowl year round – all drawn by the inter-tidal variety of Oyster Bay! The 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 romantic couple escaping but also includes a queen size sofa bed. See our listing and photos for Moon Dance Cabin as well! Moon Dance Cabin is a classic west coast design with a wrap-around porch, just steps from the water and nestled into a private clearing of rockery gardens and a forest of ferns lichen and trees. There are over ten freshwater swimming and fishing lakes within 10 minutes of Moon Dance. Or on a hot summer’s day have a salt water swim in Oyster Bay as the returning tide is warmed by the hot sand and clay! There is a great variety of trails for hiking and/or trail biking, from hikes to the top of Pender Hill or Mt. Daniel for breathtaking views or intimate discovery walks through old growth forest and fern meadows to reach the stormy shores of Georgia Straight or the world famous Skookumchuck Rapids. See our Activity Pages for the huge range of things to do and see. The local dining choices cover the spectrum from white table clothes and award winning dishes to some of the best pub food ever tasted! However, most guests have trouble leaving Moon Dance and once they shop at local Madeira Park grocery stores or down at the docks for fresh seafood they make use of our fully equipped kitchens. Dine inside or on decks with incredible views or in the gardens with flowers and ferns at your elbow. Pender Harbour is renowned for an amazing local artist community and Moon Dance is proud to support it with an extensive art collection on our cottage walls. We also offer discounted gift certificates on our Packages Page for local galleries. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon and many guests have taken home a memory to hang or place in their own homes. Other Packages offer Spa visits, Fine Dining, Salt Water Fishing and Boat Tours to Chatterbox Falls. Do you like music? Pender Harbour is host to the Jazz Festival, Blues Festival, Chamber Music Festival and then there is the Garlic Festival and numerous other gatherings all featuring Sunshine Coast artists! Every weekend offers an opportunity for a live music presentation. Both vacation rentals feature incredible, romantic Soaker Tubs for Two with tasteful landscape lighting and intimate views. At the end of the day we recommend from experience, your favorite music, candlelight and a soak for two, just steps from the bed. Serenity!

About the neighbourhood
Tucked away on a long, private 4.5 acre lot both The Cabin and The Perch offer privacy and comfort. Great restaurants and very well run local markets offer seasonal local produce and abundant selection. Lots of varied hiking trails in the area from steep climbs to the top of Mt. Daniel to boardwalk trails along salmon streams and refuge areas. The tidal changes in Oyster Bay as well as three salmon runs each year, attract a wide range of aquatic, mammal, and bird life for your viewing pleasure!
