Hosts:
A very likeable, extremely friendly and open minded couple. We talked for hours with both of them - like in a family. They are very good informed about Auckland and all recommendations convinced us and helped us to enjoy our stay.

House:
A beautiful old villa with three different but lovingly decorated rooms. All bathrooms are very modern and luxurious equipped - even with floor heating. All guests have a shared guest lounge and are invited to use the kitchen and the dining room.
The rooms a very clean and comfortable and for a big city the house is a haven of tranquility.

Breakfast:
The host prepared us a beautiful breakfast with muesli, fresh fruits, bread rolls, cheese, jam and eggs in different styles. So a good start for the day is ensured.

Location:
Eden Villa has a good travel connection to Auckland downtown (15 minutes - 2 $), other districts and even the airport bus has a stop in Mt Eden Village. Walking distance is 2 minutes.
So we left our car at the villa and enjoyed our stay without the need of driving.
In Mt Eden Village you find Coffee Shops, Restaurants, Pubs and little shops. There is also a walking pass to Mt Eden summit (15 minutes) - here you have a beautiful 360 view over Auckland.

We had a fabulous two night stay at Eden Villa B&B. Our hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly. The rooms (we had a choice of three!) were all beautifully presented and immaculately clean. The villa was everything it looked on the webpage and we found it lovely and quiet. We were able to walk up to Mt Eden village and found a great variety of pubs cafes and restaurants, even a craft market open on Saturday with alot of Christmas presents for sale. No need to go right into Auckland central. We loved our stay and would definitely stay again. The breakfasts were 5 star and we were made to feel like long lost friends.

A great location, just round the corner from Mt Eden village. Loved the old villa, beautifully decorated and a lovely peaceful garden, doesn't feel like the city at all and you could easily spend hours just relaxing on the deck with a drink and a book.Tasty, healthy breakfast, which was very appreciated after the wedding we attended the night before. Christine and Anthony are marvellous hosts, very knowledgeable and welcoming.

It was my first trip to New Zealand and I have found heartfelt Kiwi hospitality in this B & B.

I believe if there is important thing to share about this B & B on top of its beautiful pictures posted by anyone else here, it should be Christine and Anthony's warm personalities and great services.

The facilities -- clean, comfortable and beautiful rooms, air-conditioned, each with ensuite bathroom, NZ made toiletries, chandelier and fireplace in living rooms, wifi, bedwarmer, green and well maintained gardens with lovely daisy every where, and yes, the fresh air and lovely bird singing every morning too.

Every morning my breakfast was hearty yet perfect, with freshly baked croissants, eggs, home-made muesli, jams, toasts, NZ comb honey (nice!) on blue-and-white english dinnerware -- lovely. Definitely worth staying with truly heartwarming experience of Auckland lifestyle.

Location-wise, it is 15 mins from Auckland city centre by Britomart (Bus services) with friendly bus drivers providing change even though you do not have exact amount. Mount Eden is nearby, at the top you could view unblocked scenery of Auckland city (Skytower, Devonport, Mt. Rangitoto, etc). Popular eateries are nearby (Molten, Fraser, De Post Belgian Cafe) and were crowded with people on weekends.

I travel mostly for work hence accustomed to hotels. Even though this time I travelled for leisure, instead of being awkward, I had experienced truly heartwarming accommodation in Auckland.

Unforgettable.

Fabulous place to stay. Large and very comfortable property maintained by Christine and Anthony (and the long suffering cats).
Awesome healthful breakfast prepared with care. No cheap foods here.
Bedrooms tastefully furnished. I loved the comfort. Crisp, clean white linen on a beautiful queen sized bed.
The ensuite was just brilliant with underfloor heating. White, fluffy better that hotel quality towels (and plenty of them).
I should have bought the skin products that were in the bathroom, just superb quality....damn!
Exceptional value for money, great service by very special people.

All the best
