Nonpareil Estate

Nonpareil estate was founded 16 years ago by David Gouveia and Ms. Mano McNabb. This estate was
started because two people wanted to provide a sanctuary where our guests could come for rest and
relaxation while their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs were cared for.

The name Nonpareil means “no parallel or no comparison”.

This name came from the name of a village in Guyana, South America. This little village Nonpareil, was
where David’s mother grew up. Both Mano and David had a vision of a healing retreat that was rooted in
total care for our guests. We were fortunate because we found this beautiful property with a large estate
home that was handed down through the years in the Rainie family. This family of Scottish descent kept
the land free of pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers.

Nonpareil was the first year round organic fasting and detoxification centre in Canada.
The energy that we felt here was extraordinary, the clean fresh air, 173 acres of rolling hills and a beautiful
maple forest was exactly what we needed for our guests to experience the serenity that Nonpareil offers.

I arrived tense, tired and bloated .You took me under your wings and soothed my frazzled nerves. Now I am REFRESHED, RENEWED, and REVITALIZED. The fresh raw juices are a rare treat, something my body soaked up with great PASSION.
