Eden Villa Bed & Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Three years ago my husband and I started our New Zealand trip staying at Eden Villa inAuckland.
We loved it and so for our return visit it was to Eden Villa we turned to begin this next visit here.
Christine and Anthony are wonderful hosts that love to share their home and their City with you. Their rooms are wonderfully comfortable and roomy and the breakfasts each day include a lot of fresh and local ingredients.
This location is easy to get to by shuttle from the airport and has very easy access to the motorways. We love the walk from Mount Eden to the inner City and from there it is easy to get a ferry to the beautiful islands just a short way from Auckland.
Mount Eden is a beautiful little community with excellent food choices and lovely coffee shops and bakeries. It has a lovely book store too.
If we ever return to New Zealand again, we would love to start it with a stay at Eden Villa.

Room Tip: We love the front room with its light but the other rooms are just as beautiful.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Eden Villa. Christine and Antony are lovely people, have a beautiful home, and serve a healthy and delicious (no, the two are not mutually exclusive!) breakfast.
We stayed in two different rooms (because we stayed at the beginning and end of our trip to NZ) and were very happy with both. If you appreciate quality linens and heated towel racks, you'll really like Eden Villa!
We found the location to be convenient, with plenty of good restaurants in the Mt. Eden neighborhood. Christine and Antony were extremely helpful with restaurant recommendations and sightseeing ideas.

I had the opportunity to stay at Eden Villa my first night in NZ. It was wonderful. The room was very spacious and nicely appointed. The bed was very comfortable and just what I needed after such a long trip. Christine and Antony were very gracious hosts. The breakfast the following morning was delicious. I wish I had the opportunity to stay longer as I enjoyed my night very much. I would definitely stay here again in the future.

We stayed at Eden Villa for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon and start of a 4 week trip to New Zealand over Christmas.
The villa itself is in gorgeous surroundings. The garden is a lovely place to chill out after a long flight! Mount Eden itself is lovely with lots of cafes, bars and bakeries. All this and only 10 minutes on the bus into Auckland.
The bedroom and bathroom were beautifully decorated with wonderful finishing touches like fresh flowers and gorgeous toiletries.
Antony and Christine made us feel so welcome and loved getting to know us and other guests over breakfast.
Breakfasts were awesome!!! Christine's homemade muesli with fresh rhubarb from the garden were a real winner and we shall definitely be following her recipie to recreate it!
They recommended places for us to go and see and gave us some really helpful advice about the rest of NZ and what to do and see.
We can't wait to go back to NZ and shall definitely be returning to Eden Villa.
Thank you Antony and Christine for making the start of our honeymoon so memorable for all the right reasons. We really enjoyed our stay and went on to have a fabulous time in a wonderful country! Already saving to come back.
Love Joe & Briony

This was our first trip to NZ and we were lucky enough to stay at Eden Villa. Christine and Antony are perfect hosts, they are so kind and gave wonderful suggestions on what to do and see. The rooms are well appointed with each having a master bath and fresh flowers from the beautiful, relaxing garden. The brkfsts had specialty breads, yogurts, homemade muesli and marmalades. The location is one block to Eden Village; shops, restaurants and bakeries. The bus line runs through the Village so you are easily able to get anywhere in Auckland. Thank you Christine and Antony for making part of our trip to NZ so wonderful and welcoming!

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.
