“Great place to chill out and enjoy the view”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

Such a great place - lots of little extra touches everywhere, wine and cheese on arrival (a great way to mingle with other guests), great recommendations for eating out and a fabulous breakfast. All provided by really genuine hosts - many thanks Jen and Eric!!

You are so right when you say drinks on the deck is a great way to get to know other guests.
After a long drive, and it generally is, a glass of wine or a beer, great views and interesting conversation can get the tension out pretty fast.
Thank you for helping that to happen.

This was our first experience with B&B and wont be our last thanks to the wonderful experience from Jen and Eric. The rooms are private and have fantastic views of the bay. The Queen bed is very comfortable and the room/ ensuite is very clean and generous. Hosts are very helpful with local surrounds and restaurants for evening meals. Breakfast is amazing.

Room Tip: All are great

This is a a wonderful B&B with stunning views from all four rooms. Hosts Eric and Jennifer are so friendly and welcoming as well as being full of really helpful advice and guidance.

Breakfasts are delicious and a departing present of a jar of Jennifer's homemade kumquat jam was a delightful touch.

Within walking distance of Eden's attractions - you must try 'Sprout' a super cafe/deli.

Tea/coffee/cookies available 24/7 in the guest lounge area.

Highly recommended - ours was a two night stay as we made our way from the Blue Mountains to Melbourne.

Room Tip: Each of the rooms are individually designed so take your pick - they are all wonderful.

Thank you for mentioning Sprout and our excellent advice.
Well, Eric's excellent advice.
You know you may have given readers the idea that everyone gets a jar of jam when they leave.
There are going to be some VERY disappointed customers.
OK maybe not, not everyone is a "jammy" !
Hope the rest of your trip was fun and you enjoyed Melbourne.

Jen and Eric could not do enough to make us feel at home. Great bed and great breakfast. Shame we were just passing through. We would definitely like to return and stay longer during the whale season. Eden and its surroundings are of outstanding natural beauty and reasonably well away from the hubbub you get further up the coast closer to Sydney

My favorite B&B by far! Service is super attentive to start with, from the moment you first contact them to check out. Rooms are amazingly comfortable, big and very comfy. Location is also great: walking distance from town and a fantastic view from the room. Breakfast is amazing, very complete and served on the deck with an amazing view - very convenient when you want to relax.
Eric and Jennifer are great hosts, professional, friendly and always helpful.

We stayed 5 nights and felt relaxed and comfortable the whole time. Most people seemed to stay one or two nights on their way through and they all told us they wished they stayed longer. There is quite a lot to do and see around Eden. The beaches are beautiful and the National Park has walks and history that is well worth the time. In the town itself, the Whale museum is actually really interesting (yes I was surprised) and the local restaurant Mystique is as good as any restaurant I have eaten at in Melbourne.

Note: to Geoff & Sue - the local muscles are sensational!!!

I highly recommend this B&B. Excellent!

I thought I replied to your review ages ago. Sorry I must have forgotten to push the SUBMIT button.
Did make some not very generous comments about BMX equipment maybe being a good idea for you. Like knee pads, elbow pads and a full face helmet.
Perhaps I chickened out.
We hope you are both happy and planning another holiday somewhere soon.
You were so much fun!
Spread the joy!

Driving around Eden we saw a sign in the road for a B & B and went down to find this amazing set up.
Firstly the welcome and helpfulness of Eric and Jen was outstanding.
The room was very good with excellent facilities and great views.
All the information about the local was provided and added to by their knowledge.
A welcome drink that evening with fellow guests before heading off to dinner was a nice touch.
The breakfast served on the terrace overlooking the bay was one of the best we had on our 2 week road trip.
Going beyond was exemplified by us leaving a single shoe in our room and Jen posting to us at no charge.
We would return and have told our Australian friends all about this great place.
One of the nicest B & B we have stayed in around the world.

Room Tip: All good with great views

We have had lots if things left behind but I think your shoe is the first for footwear.
Eric was on top of the post quickly as he was worried it may not reach you in time. Whew!
Many topics of conversation with global guests.
Can't beat it.
2 cruise ships in port on Monday the 10th, I hope you can imagine how great they looked anchored in the bay. Happy travels.

Ariane and I stayed over New year for 3 nights. From the moment we arrived Jennifer and Eric as our master hosts were charming. They knew just the right amount of hospitality to offer: relaxed, welcoming, peaceful - Snug cove offers so much warmth and charm. Drinks at 5pm on the terrace for all who stay and a great chance to meet other guests: or not necessary if you're so inclined and just want to rest. Wonderful views from the balcony of our room; and huge pelicans flying so close. We are indeed only a short walk from the water. Clean, homely, a superb home cooked breakfast as much or as little as you want. Jennifer even washed our clothes and pressed them for us.. crikey, not necessary but so kind and above and beyond the call. Eric's knowledge of Eden and surrounds and places of interest was a wonderful help. Both wonderful ambassadors for Eden and to real hospitality. We'll be back ! Viva Jennifer and Eric ! Thank you.

Thank you for your lovely comments. I do need to clear up 1 thing, didn't iron your garments! Have to fess up to this one or everyone we do laundry for will expect ironing as well. NOT HAPPENING !
Must have folded them really well.
If that guitar travels everywhere with you I think the case should have a sticker for each place it has visited. Like those old steamer trunks our grandparents had.
I know someone who could airbrush The Beatles on it for you.
Happy travels and thank you for finding us.
