Canadian Sleepers Rave About Octave

Over 5,000 customers have given Octave a five-star rating

Best Quality & Value for a Foam Mattress

Great mattress at a great value. Way cheaper mattress than a Temper-Pedic, but similar in quality and in coolness/breathability. Much better quality and construction than a Casper or Nectar mattress, based on personal use.

Angy N. Verified Buyer
Tried Every Type of Bed

I have had four beds this year. Two from Mattress Firm (hybrid and firm with pillow topper) and a Nectar, and I've tried about ten mattress toppers. Everything I had hurt my back or my hip ... An added benefit was this bed sleeps the coolest out of all four that I’ve had this year. It wasn’t advertised for that when I got it, but it was a benefit for sure. I would recommend this bed to anyone, and for the price – you cannot beat it.

Lauren W. Verified Buyer
Excellent Bed

We tried the Casper, Bob-O-Pedic, and Nectar, and none were as comfortable ... It is very comparable to our Tempur-Pedic. Well worth the price.

I Am Very Happy

I am very happy with my purchase. This is our 2nd one. We originally bought a queen for our guest bedroom. We liked it so much we bought a California king for ourselves. It is awesome!

Jason N. Verified Buyer
Great Mattress – Highly Recommend

This is my second ... I trust the brand and quality they provide, and I wouldn't choose anything else. The mattress is high quality and feels like a high-end luxury brand.

I Can Sleep Again!

I have been dealing with chronic piriformis syndrome and haven’t been able to sleep without muscle relaxants. We replaced our soft mattress for this firm one and have not taken any pain/muscle medications and sleep so much better. I wish I had tried this sooner!

Rhonda D. Verified Buyer
This Has Been a GAME CHANGER for my Wife and I!!!!

Over the years we have wasted thousands on various mattresses and nothing ever worked. And the exchange-a-mattress program retailers provided were underwhelming and still led to us never finding our forever bed.

The 100% money back guarantee removed any fear I had about whether I would be stuck with an unwanted bed.

Oh my god. The only person in the house that loves the bed more than me and my wife is our dog, and, as it is now a King, there is room for all of us.

Did You Know? Nectar is listed as the #1 Mattress Brand to Avoid by the moderators of the r/Mattress community.

Nectar's Problems With the Federal Trade Commission for False Advertising Claims

Resident Home LLC, Nectar Sleep’s parent company, has faced multiple charges in the USA for false advertising by the Federal Trade Commission. Fakespot, a company which uses AI to detect fake reviews and scams only gives Nectar a "C" rating.

We do things differently here in Canada. That's why the North American Customer Centricity Awards gave our customer service strategy a "Highly Commended" rating!

Only Octave Is Designed for Canadian Seasons

Nectar is an American company that assembles their mattresses from materials sourced from China, Vietnam, USA, Malaysia, and Mexico. Do they understand Canadian sleepers?

"So many mattress brands are designed, and made, in the USA or China," says Octave co-founder and CEO, Sam Prochazka. "Those brands build for their own markets, and Canada is an afterthought. We started by asking Canadians about their sleep habits, and built our products from there."

Made in Canada for Canadian seasons, Octave Vista is instantly refreshing, as soon as you lie down. The bespoke top cover is woven with our proprietary CryoFusion™ cooling nanofibres. This refreshing sleep surface gets cool and stays cool. PolarMAX®, our phase-change infusion, also helps keep your body at a comfortable temperature all night and in all seasons.

Octave's 365-night trial gives you a full year to test out the mattress at home throughout all four seasons. If you don't experience a transformative sleep with Octave, contact our customer service team. We'll pick the mattress up, recycle or donate it, and give you a full refund.
