"As always we leave Salt Spring with plans & desires to return here soon. We have cherished our leisurely time on this beautiful island, roaming in Ruckle Park, kayaking, swimming and musing in this marvelous landscape. Thank you for your kind and attentive hospitality – for fine & subtly flavoured jams, for garden-fresh lettuce and cabbage, for the tour of Henri’s contemplative garden. Dancing Light has been a lovely spot for Bryan to stay by himself, for welcoming his lovely sister and old friends, and for the two of us to stay together. Your warmth and care have been much appreciated." Brian & Bryan, Toronto.

We were well-fed from your home-made goodies, and we hope to return one day! Much love." Katrina & Justin, Vancouver.
"Thank you Henri and Tangachee for the wondrous vision and beautiful creation that is Dancing Light Cottage. Love, harmony, balance and flow is reflected in every facet of this property and when in this space, you can’t help remember that this is our true nature. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment at Dancing Light; the warm welcome, exploring the inspirational gardens, receiving a much needed and very healing massage, listening to the symphony of stillness and having affectionate and purr-filled interactions with Young-Un, the very soulful and meditative cat. Staying here has been a magical introduction to Salt Spring Island and I look forward to returning! With love,respect and gratitude." Monika & Zubin, Vancouver, B.C.

I don’t really want to leave….” Joanne, Victoria, BC.
“ Outside it is the ‘ typical’ December: cold, cloudy and –at times- rainy. But inside the Cottage, we are nice & cozy, with the fire’s bouncing warm light, surrounded by the delicate pine scent and crackling sound of the burning logs. All the little stresses of life are behind us, and we are enjoying the peace & harmony of this magical place & of the surrounding mountains and forests, the wandering deers, and of course – the ever changing light of the secret Garden.” Anda & Lili, Vancouver, BC.
“Thank you for the use of your fantastic and peaceful space. The peace, quiet & solitude was just what we needed. The granola and jam were splendid. Please keep being as happy, peaceful and friendly! You are both fantastic and wonderful human beings, and the thought that there are folks as welcoming as you brings the both of us great joy.” Megan & Matt, Victoria, BC.
“We can’t thank you enough for creating such a beautiful place. Our first time on Salt Spring and how lucky we are to have stayed here. All the guests at our sister’s wedding were envious. Thank you for welcoming our family for a visit to the cottage. Today we leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed wishing we could stay longer.
