This is a great place in Riwaka just north of Motueka. The surroundings are beautiful! We stayed both in a bunk room with shared facilities and an en suite double. Both were excellent: spacious and clean. The kitchen was very good and large, plenty of fridges. Good equippment. Free wifi with lots of data. I have absolutely nothing to complain... More

This review has hit on some important points. We are perhaps the best located accommodation lodge in our area if you want to be in a farming area with expansive surroundings and views. The reviewer was in one of our two 4-share rooms. We are planning to 'up-market' these rooms to create more privacy for each person and provide other... More

We had a fantastic time at the lodge and honestly didn't want to leave! The hosts were very generous, from our first day when they picked us up from town on very short notice and offered to stop at the supermarket, till our last one, when they gave us a ride to nearby Kaiteriteri to catch a bus. Throughout our... More

Continued confirmation that we are providing a great place to relax and explore the Tasman region is always welcome. We are finding many more people now stay at Eden's Edge for longer periods and use it as their base for Abel Tasman National Park, Golden Bay and Kahurangi National Park. More

This is a wonderful hostel on a quiet country road, but easily bikeable, walkable, or driveable into Motueka. Liz greeted me and kindly suggested dinner spots and an itinerary for the following day; her attention to detail and the spotless room indicate much thoughtfulness in taking care of the property and her guests. Eden's Edge makes a perfect place to... More

The lodge is quite close to the Abel Tasman area. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are large enough and clean and the community kitchen is a nice place to cook your meal and to meet other people. There is a laundry facility and of course free internet :)

We travelled in a campervan using the facilities provided by hostels or campergrounds. This site was certainly one of the best we have seen so far. It is located far enough from the main road to be very quiet, but very close to Abel Tasman Park. The facilities are spotless and well kept, the owners seem to work very hard... More
