About Maryan Meek

I was born and raised in the Cook Street Village. I am an artist and enjoy painting,sculpting & textile arts.

I feel blessed to live in this area and hope you enjoy Victoria as much as I do.

Maryan Meek purchased this house in 2016

Why Maryan Meek chose Victoria

My husband Eric & I chose the Peanut because it charmed our socks off ! The huge back yard, quiet neighbourhood & easy rancher style living compelled us to renovate this magical home.

What makes this house unique

The beautiful tree lined street, surrounded by only single family style homes is quite peaceful & inviting. Bird song in the morning & evenings gives the feeling of country space.

We are so close to the beach ,park & Village that we rarely need the car. The Peanut is also a convenient bus route.

The blue peanut has everything you would want and need, location and green space and comfort delight

  • 5 of 5

Home away from home could not be a better description. The location to Cook Street village with all the amenities you need, the proximity to the beach was close by. The huge garden was an added bonus, including a shed to keep our bikes. An outdoor patio area for BBQ dining was wonderful. The beds were comfortable and the interior were beautifully decorated. Thank you Maryann for a fantastic stay. We could not of asked for anything more. We will be back next summer for sure, for sure.

The Blue Peanut was a terrific home away from home for us and our 4 year old chocolate lab.

  • 5 of 5

It was perfect for us and our lab. The large fenced back yard was ideal. The location in terms of walkability to the Inner Harbor, Beacon Hill Park, Dallas Road off leash and beach and Cook Street Village was unbeatable. The house was a quiet retreat and very well appointed and managed. We will definitely return. Thank you Maryann.

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the Blue Peanut with my family over the Labour Day weekend and we all loved it. The well equipped kitchen, spacious living spaces and large back yard make it great for a family. My grandchildren loved its proximity to Beacon Hill Park and the adults enjoyed being able to walk to Cooks Village and downtown. Maryann is extremely helpful and ensured that the house was spotless. Thank you.

Lovely house and yard!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 3 nights in July and had a great time. The house had everything we needed and was very clean and tidy. We liked how there were two separate living rooms so our son could get away from us! The backyard was very large, well fenced and very secure for our dogs.

Great Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Blue Peanut was a wonderful place to stay. It is quaint and funky, clean, with large yard and garden. The house has everything you will need to enjoy your stay. My dogs loved the yard, as did I lounging on beautiful summer afternoons. The location is excellent, 1/2 block to Beacon Hill Park, 4 blocks to the water, which has a great off-leash dog park, 2 blocks to Cook Village which has restaurants, coffee shops, pub, grocery stores, liquor store and more. I hope to return!
