Simply stunning, magical – truly one of the top places in New Zealand, and with about 20 trips here we have been to most.

This is my 3rd trip to the South Island. Your property beats every single experience we have had – from the gorgeous grounds, incredibly comfortable rooms, delicious food, to the quiet, personalized attention to our particular wishes

We've been home for two weeks now, and I've been thinking about writing this review......but I've been a bit stumped about how to convey what a special and luxurious experience Edenhouse was for us.

Just like the Garden of Eden but no snakes! Gorgeous place and fantastic hospitality.

Oh my goodness, what goodness everywhere! The food, the wine, the gardens, the excursions into the forest and seaside, and above all, hospitality at every turn.

One of the best in the country – maybe anywhere.

They have an incredible staff - every one waiting to answer your requests. The food was the best in New Zealand.

And the grounds (50 acres including 8 acres of gardens) are stunning.

Regarding the location, it is perfectly central for exploring the local wine region, the town of Nelson, Abel Tasman National Park, fly fishing and hiking Mt. Arthur.
