Relax, Art, Gardens, Hospitality +++. Nestled into hills in Motueka, Nelson Tasman area you'll find this charming luxury Lodge. Surrounded by beautiful, well established gardens, it's hard to believe Edenhouse hasn't always been there. Bobby (Designer of house and gardens) and Peter are fabulous hosts. Peter will pull strings to make whatever you want to happen, happen! The house and... More

The owners enjoy looking after guests, are superb hosts, and great company. A really lovely visit to Eden House. The food cooked by the Dutch chef was absolutely excellent too, as were the local wines!

Arriving in a rainstorm after taking the ferry from Wellington to Picton we were advised to take the Wairau Valley Road to Edenhouse. Great advice, beautiful even in the rain. Greeted so graciously by Bobby. And then getting upgraded to the Cottage. We settled in the lovely and very comfortable cottage. Dinners and Breakfast couldn't have been any better. Peter... More

Just a perfect experience with no exceptions. The location is stunning - the hosts perfect - very friendly efficient and quite welcoming. The food is right up there as some of the best we have had in NZ - reminded us a bit of Louis when he was at Timara Lodge. But Edenhouse had multiple chefs cooking and every dish... More

We have been to New Zealand 3 times over the last 7 years. We have stayed at great places like Eagle's Nest, Solitaire Lodge, and Blanket Bay. However, our stay at Edenhouse tops them all. You will not find better hosts in New Zealand than Peter and Bobby. They go way beyond your expectations to make your stay great. The... More

This New Years my husband and I went down-under and our stay at Edenhouse is at the top of our list.

Edenhouse was simply quite,quite beautiful. A house that has been designed to create the calmest environment for guests. French windows that are wide, wide open and allow the fresh air to flow though the house. The views to the gardens and many terraces are stunning.

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. I read the 27 reviews that precede mine, because sometimes you have a better/worse/different experience than others and by writing a review you can add some... More

Edenhouse is truly the art of hospitality perfected. Owners Bobbie and Peter Martin built and furnished this beautiful home in the Orinoco Valley, Motueka, an easy drive from downtown Nelson. They later on decided to offer two exquisitely decorated guest rooms and a stand alone cottage to guests. But the real gem here is the sincere hospitality offered by Bobbie,... More
