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

Wow, what an amazing haven of peace and tranquility. A little piece of heaven in the absolutely stunning Orinoco Valley in the Motueka region. Bobbie and Peter have created an exquisite Country House with style and flair and their hospitality was truly gracious. Nothing was too much trouble if we needed help with anything and they have got the service... 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

It's no surprise that all the reviews of Edenhouse are so good! The Orinoco Valley, inland from Nelson and Motueka and within half an hour of the Tasman National Park, is spectacular, and amidst the lush valleys and bucolic farmhouses, Peter and Bobbie Martin have created a beautiful thriving garden to complement their lovely home. Accommodation is available within the... More

We recently stayed with Peter and Bobbie while on our honeymoon. I must say our three days with them were more than we could have hoped for - we enjoyed all the benefits of staying with family - a warm greeting, great conversation/company over dinner, etc. with all you hope for from a luxury hotel - superb meals, great wine,...

Every once in a while travel brings a time of beauty, hospitality, serendipity and perfect convergence of all things wonderful. Such was our stay at Edenhouse, an elegant English style B&B with interesting things around every corner. There are 2 rooms and one cottage in the 48 acres of private property comprised of gardens, vistas, fruit and flowering trees, sculpture,... More

We recently spent three nights at Edenhouse and had a simply marvelous time. From the moment we arrived until we left Peter and Bobbie made us feel like welcomed friends rather than paying customers. When we arrived it was early spring and Bobbie's English style garden was just coming into bloom and one could see how much effort and love... More
