The space
Maresia, which is a Portuguese word meaning "scent of the ocean", is a stunning property overlooking Baynes Sound and the Beaufort mountains, a very popular destination in the Denman Island Home and Garden Tour held every second year in mid June, with 2 acres of cultivated woodland, ornamental gardens, vegetable and herb gardens, orchard, ponds, and meadow.

During your stay

We are a retired but still very active couple, who truly value and honour our place on this earth in our little piece of paradise. We grow most of our own food, raise chickens and rabbits, and have developed a reputation over the years as gourmet cooks. We are both enthusiastically involved with our community and participate in art shows, fund-raisers, the community choir and various festivals throughout the year; and Michael is part of a father-son team that renovates, designs and builds homes on Denman Island. We are happy to share what we have learned of Denman’s magical secrets to ensure that you have a wonderful stay. Throughout the year we harvest wild shellfish, berries, herbs and mushrooms. Breakfast, which will normally be served in the Family Room en famille with the hosts, but can also be served in the Guest Room if preferred, will include cereal, fruit, eggs, fresh home-baked bread, home-made jams, tea or coffee. Please let us know in advance of any special needs. Also, please note that, on advance request, we would be delighted to serve a gourmet, garden-to-table dinner for our guests incorporating seasonal foods whenever possible. If you are interested in taking advantage of this offer, especially because of limited restaurant availability on the Island, please contact us if possible before arrival to confirm availability and discuss menu options. We also offer zero-mile-diet cooking lessons for interested guests.
