after a few years, we finally made our way back to moondance cabin for a few days of rest and relaxation. we have stayed at the cabin each time. its spotlessly clean, Kathleen is a fantastic host and the area is beautiful. lots of great hikes very close and an easy drive down to sechelt or north to check out skookumchuck. we will definitely be back and highly recommend either accommodation on the property.
We only had 24hours to spend at the cabin and it was magical. The level of detail that Kathleen has put into the space is incredible. From the candles and matching robes laid out beside the soaker tub in the loft to the neatly stacked firewood and kindling beside the wood stove. The view of the water from the deck is incredible, and the way that the cliffs and the trees shelter the cabin made us feel like we had the whole world to ourselves. It's an incredible spot for a romantic retreat.
I have stayed at Moondance on 3 different occasions. It is a very unique and magical place located on the west coast of Canada. Situated in a beautiful forest but right on Oyster Bay. The sound of silence at this place is amazing. The only sound often is that of the wind blowing through the trees. However twice we have been treated to the sound of wolves howling a message across the bay. Its truly something special. Although it is a wilderness experience the cabin is not. It is fully equipped with all modern conveniences. They have thought of everything here. For example we found rubber boots suitable for adults and children so that one can explore the bay when the tide is out. Amazing. Thanks so much to Kathleen for helping to make our stay so wonderful. I will be back again for a fourth visit!
Very kind hosts and excellent location. Very quiet, but everything nearby (like restaurants, kayak rental, swimming, groceries). Beautiful house/cottage. Don’t stay too short....
I stayed here with my wife and 14 month old baby recently. It's a really spacious, gorgeous 1 bedroom deluxe cabin in the forest. The outside deck is wonderful to relax on and enjoy the peace and quiet. We were very comfortable and found Kathleen and Brent to be wonderful hosts throughout the booking procedure and our stay.
We received good contact after booking with good instructions and information from Kathleen, the owner. The cottage was spacious and quiet. It was nice that the owners are on site. There is unique artwork, comfortable living room furniture and sufficient linens. The cabin was maintained with surface cleanliness. We enjoyed the large verandah, nice selection of music and videos and a good Wi-Fi signal.
We don’t mind a hard or soft bed, but the bed in the cottage sagged a bit and we woke with back discomfort.
I suggest that you call to discuss the path down to the cottage from the parking with the owner if mobility is an issue. We found it a bit steep. They have another cottage that is more accessible. Remember to bring your favourite shampoo and soap. Do not be put off by the view of the muddy flats if you arrive at low tide. The inlet fills with water and it looks like the cottage is situated on a lake.
What an amazing couple of days we spent at the Moon Dance Cabin... noises of nature, and the peaceful surroundings were quite something. From start to finish, Kathleen took care of all our needs and we were able to just enjoy our time on the Sunshine Coast. Would recommend to anyone looking for some time to relax! Definitely would go again.
