We stayed for three nights at Eden House in July 2014. The hosts, Richard and Carole, were fantastic. They were friendly and incredibly helpful in planning how to use our time in Whangarei and elsewhere in New Zealand. And the breakfasts were unbelievable! The house is gorgeous with fantastic views, and our room had a great view of the sunrise... More

This was our first night in a Bed and Breakfast on this visit to North Island. It was so good that a lot of other Bed and Breakfasts had a lot to live up to! Richard and Carole were very attentive. They couldn't do enough for you but without overpowering you, their local knowledge was invaluable, providing maps and places... More

We stayed for 3 nights in January, 2014 with Richard & Carole. Our stay was all that you could want, wonderful hosts, excellent meals-including a Bhutanese meal and a very beautiful home. Each night we would have a glass of wine, sitting in the living room and conversing as old friends. We were at home with these gracious hosts. The... More

Hi guys, Thank you so much for your review. It's lovely. I hope New York isn't too cold as we've been hearing of storms sweeping the States? Inn on 2nd will certainly be on our bucket list if we ever manage to get to that side of the Atlantic. It was great hearing first hand what your city is like... More

This is a wonderfully warm and welcoming bed and breakfast option. We stayed for three nights including Christmas eve and Christmas night. Richard and Carole made us feel so welcome and at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We had the most enjoyable Christmas dinner - lots of fun plus truly scrumptious food served in lovely surrounds. Breakfast... More

My wife and I explored New Zealand for our three week honeymoon, and stayed at a dozen places from the Northland to Stewart Island. We both think that Eden House was by far the best stay we had. There are many places in New Zealand with good facilities, good views, good food, and good service. Richard and Carole not only... More

We stayed at Eden House just after Christmas. It was the first 'homestay' of our trip and we were not sure what to expect but Carole and Richard made us so welcome. The setting on the hill was so beautiful and peaceful and yet so close to some stunning bays. With only one full day for seeing the area, Richard's... More

Thank you Richard & Carole for letting us stay in your wonderful house. The position is beautiful and you made us very welcome. Sadly we were there for only one night, but everything was faultless, with good food, good accommodation and good company. Thanks again. Mike & Toni

We spent only 2 nights at the Eden House B&B and we wished we stayed longer: loving hosts (Richard & Carole), beautiful large room with amazing view, delicious hearty breakfasts...this place is truly Eden! Last but not least, Richard's lemonade is the best ever!! If you're planning to stay in Whangarei we strongly recommend Eden House B&B!
