Thank you, thank you, thank you for another marvelous stay. You have created such a special place here, and your hospitality is unrivaled! Returning here was a big part of why we decided to come back to New Zealand, and we're already planning our third trip! This place is paradise!

After staying in Huka Lodge, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers and Matakauri Lodge, we found Edenhouse a true joy! Peter and Bobbie were amazing hosts.

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.

It's one thing to enjoy the hospitality of a fine five star hotel. It is clearly another to be the guests of such five star hosts in a five star lodge

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.

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.

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.
