About Us

Custom artscapes are what we do. For over forty years, our custom pools, spas, outdoor kitchens, and water features have been statements that simultaneously stuns and inspire. To get there, our team of engineers, designers, and outdoor living experts has quietly developed the most comprehensive and helpful outdoor living organization in the greater Toronto area. Genesis 3 Design Group credentials ensure clients receive the most advanced expertise in watershape design and construction. And our trend-right outdoor living boutique provides exclusive access to the finest in hot tubs, patio furniture, bbq’s, outdoor décor and water care.

But, the BonaVista difference is one felt from the inside out. As a second-generation family business, we are proud of our history of exacting standards, innovative designs, and unwavering client focus.

BonaVista founder Bob Brown advanced the art of custom pools with his professional engineering background, aesthetic focus, and preference for emotion-evoking memories. But it was BonaVista’s professional and unpretentious company ethos-its guiding principles-that he molded and protected most. Forty years ago, this meant clients were the heart of the process, the finest materials were insisted upon, and post-sale support was incomparable. Today, it is all of these things and more: One step into our Outdoor Living Boutique quickly reveals our contemporary design and service orientation, bespoke focus, and deft touch.

BonaVista continues to extol the flexible and approachable virtues of its founder, our father, Bob Brown. Our business grows from client and industry referrals because we proudly, yet humbly, leave a little of our hearts in every dream built. Just as he did.

Here’s What Our Customers Have to Say

  • Jen and her team were amazing to work with. The in store shopping experience really helped to narrow down options, compare with other brands and choose my tub. Energy efficiency was one of the most important features and Jen helped to show HydroPool advantage with being efficient. Delivery and installation was earlier than planned, ready for family Christmas!

    Vicky Dominguez

  • Jennifer Gannon and Rob Irvine provide amazing service and are extremely knowledgeable on the products they sell. They are easily accessible by phone or in the store for any questions on our swim spa. They are always professional and do their best to provide service that far exceeds my expectations. I would not hesitate to recommend Bonavista products and always enjoy dealing with Jennifer and Rob who excel in customer service.

  • Bonavista has been historically great at servicing our old hot tub, but when we moved we wanted to buy a new style hot tub and have it built into a modified deck. Rob Irvine, the Sales Manager that helped us out, did an exceptional job at all stages -- the purchase of the right tub, fair pricing, etc. but he really took charge of much more. He coordinated delivery to coincide with our backyard renovation and directly communicated with our contractors.
