I spent a beautiful weekend in Brad and Heather’s home. The house is in a great position to discover Boyle Park and its beautiful trails, Chrome Island view and Eagles Rock as well. The breakfasts were great and different day by day. They used their product and local product as well and Brad is a good cook. I did a “very local” experience thanks to the hosts, harvesting for a Winery of the Island and having a beautiful lunch with them and the people came to help. And the Hot Tub is quite something as well! What can I say? Bellissimo! Impagabile! Una vacanza stupenda. Grazie!!!

This is a beautiful place to stay on Denman Island! It’s on a peaceful farm with chickens, an adorable dog, and bountiful gardens. The suite is lovely, with lots of space and a tall vaulted ceiling. There’s a well-equipped kitchenette with everything you need to prepare light meals. Brad and Heather are lovely hosts and really make you feel welcomed. They prepare the most delicious breakfasts each morning with as many local ingredients as possible, some even from the farm! The property is also well-located for exploring around the island. I would definitely stay again the next time I’m on Denman.

This place feels like home; a wonderful couple with a beautiful property. The room was a quaint tiny home, with lots of lights, a fireplace to warm up, and even a piano! A very comfy place, with all amenities. Their wonderful dog Tilly is the perfect companion to go for a walk and explore around the property. Brad’s place is perfectly located, 20 minutes from the ferry from Buckley Bay and 10 minutes to Hornby. The breakfast in the morning is without a doubt, the best breakfast we had in years!!!! The tour of the garden is also a highlight; so many plants, a gardener’s dream. Highly, highly recommended.

Lovely space and property, warm and welcoming hosts, phenomenal breakfasts. We were so pleased to experience peace and quiet here, and slept so well in the cozy, billowy bed. This was an off-season visit so we were lucky to see some snowfall, which was dreamy with the toasty woodstove going. We hope to come back one day.

I don’t want to say too much because I want to keep this gem selfishly to myself. Heather and Brad’s beautiful, peaceful haven exceeded our expectations. Breakfast included was delicious and very thoughtful! Heather and Brad gave us lots of recommendations for events going on in the community and we genuinely enjoyed all of them. From the live blue grass music and breakfast at the Earth Factory bistro to the weird dog show event on Sunday, we had an awesome time hanging with the locals. We will be back for sure!

Brad and Heather are very gracious and friendly hosts. They gave us a thorough tour of their garden and outdoor areas, even though we arrived around supper time. Our room was very comfortable and quiet, and the breakfast meals were delicious, varied and substantial. We very much enjoyed our stay at Green Hill B&B!

I just spent a fabulous 9 days at Greenhill B&B. The facilities are just as shown in the photo’s and the property is absolutely gorgeous. Brad and Heather are “garden nerds” and the variety of trees and various plantations are stunning! Days at Greenhill are peaceful and quiet but there’s always gardening going on. The location is a couple of k’s from the beaches and “town” but the Island is quite bike friendly and easy to access. Bonus… access to Morrison marsh and the chrome point trails are nearbyBreakfasts were tasty and served in the room. Cooking facilities in the room are adequate for light cooking / meal prep. My only regret is that I didn’t spend a lot of time there. I had lots of friends visiting and camping at the beach so I didn’t get to enjoy the wonderful property. Brad and Heather are a wealth of information about Denman Island, gardening, and Permaculture. I will be back.

Brad and Heather were super lovely hosts. Their property is beautiful and it was fun to get a tour of all the awesome work they have done setting up their permaculture farm. Seeing Brad collect the eggs we ate the next morning was cool. The bathroom is separate from the unit, so you have to walk down the deck past their kitchen to go to the bathroom, which was interesting, but it worked. Also there is one queen bed (I thought there were 2, but might have misread) and the space is one large room with lots of windows. Quirky, but cozy!

This was a great stay for us. We really enjoyed the hot tub and the selection of Games. Brad gave us some good suggestions of places to check out on Denman and provided exceptional hospitality. He welcomed us to check out their many projects on the property. The breakfasts were delicious and hearty. We used the bbq for dinner and with no sink we felt bad leaving our dishes for our host but they assured us it was no problem! The bathroom setup is a little unconventional since it’s a little further down the deck than the room but we didn’t find it to be a concern. Overall, we highly recommend staying here
