We camped in the grounds of this lovely place. There was a good area to pitch tents under the cover of trees for shade in the summer. Great facilities/kitchen etc. You can cook yourself a nice meal and eat on the terrace overlooking the gorgeous natural surroundings.

Thanks Natalie. Your response reflects what many of our guests say to us on checking out. This year we are improving the entrance driveway, upgrading the bedding in our rooms, improving the guest lounge, doing some more garden landscaping (the soil arrived today) and doing a lot of work on our four share rooms to make them almost as nice...

We chose this as it was on the BBH listings. The location was very serene, relaxing and tranquil. The place is reasonably new and we had a private ensuite room that was delightfully presented. There is a magnificent kitchen, a lounge room and also a huge wrap around balcony. It is a stunning and peaceful location however you definitely need... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review; life is busy! We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay. Perhaps the male owner was not quite as smiley as normal because his wife had asked him about that time for help with her chickens - not his favourite birds, because when they escape they do scratch up...

This was the greatest hostel we had on our total New Zealand trip! It is very clean (rooms, kitchen, bathromms,...) and you have a lot of room to read, for telef´vision or to have a barbecue. The owner are very kind and friendly! The hostel is also a perfect place to start in the Abel Tasman nationalpark.

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.

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.

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 :)
