Spent two nights at Eden House. Bobbie and Peter have a beautiful house and made us very welcome. They are assisted by some lovely house staff. Very relaxing stay and great base to explore the Abel Tasman Nature reserve. Try and it you will not be disappointing.

we travel a lot. we stay in many delightful, beautiful hotels. Few have the charm, design, character, cuisine, and significantly, the hosts - Bobbie + Peter (thoughtful, helpful, intelligent, funny) - that edenhouse boasts. It's only a short drive (<30 minutes) from the Nelson Airport, and worth every second! The gardens, which are Bobbie's pride and joy are spectacular, don't... More

Oh, we so didn't want to leave this little bit of paradise in the south island! The best isn't good enough to describe how Bobbie and Peter went out of their way to make sure we had a home away from home...actually, better than our home. The property, the gardens, the lodgings, the atmosphere, the meals, the people (especially Bobbie... More

from the moment we arrived Peter and Bobbie and their marvelous Edenhouse exceeded our expectations. The ground which Bobbie has put in are beautiful and set in gorgeous surrounding. The house is exquisite as are the rooms. All the staff are warm and totally helpful. And the food, both breakfast and dinner, were extraordinary. Perfect ingredients perfectly prepared in a... More

Peter and Bobbie Martin created a great home with a beautiful landscape in the countryside in Motueka, thirty minutes from down town Nelson, New Zealand and then decided to offer to visitors occupancy in two of the rooms in their home and in a separate cottage on their property. Thus, at cocktails and dinner you celebrate another great day in... More

We're posting this to add another excellent vote. After reading the previous reviews, we really have nothing to add, other than to say thanks to Peter and Bobbie for having created such a place. Accolades written are well deserved.

Peter are the most attentive and charming hosts. Using Peter's directions, which had been sent to our previous place, we able to find this gem of a location easily. Peter, supervised by Annie the dog, welcomed us as we drove into the drive. He showed us to a large room complete with balcony, walk-in closet and large bathroom. There is... More

Our stay at the Edenhouse was one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand. We stayed in the cottage which was absolutely wonderful. Peter met us at the airport when we arrived in Nelson and his quiet unending attention to our every interest began there! We stayed three nights and were sorry when we left. The Edenhouse staff...

Planning my next trip to NZ reminded me that I never did reviews for my last one. Bobbi and Peter are consummate hosts, they will do anything to make sure you have everything you need. My guess is that if a single guest said to them that they wanted to find a spouse that they’d even matchmake – and probably... More
