We spent only 2 nights at the Eden House B&B and we wished we stayed longer: loving hosts (Richard & Carole), beautiful large room with amazing view, delicious hearty breakfasts...this place is truly Eden! Last but not least, Richard's lemonade is the best ever!! If you're planning to stay in Whangarei we strongly recommend Eden House B&B!

Hi both, It was great to see you both again and have a catch up on the news. You just managed to miss New Zealand's polar blast which brought heavy snow to the South Island and Central North.

Our arrival was very welcoming and the accommodation was first class. Carole and Richard were very accommodating and nothing was too much trouble. Breakfasts were truly a delight. The BnB is set in wonderfil surrounding bush with lots of native birds. This is the best one we have stayed in in the Northland area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Richard and Carole. What a shame that we only spent one night with them, though. We arrived very late, after a long drive.

We expected it to be good. Not surprisingly, it was great! Wonderful friendly and gracious hosts were Richard and Carole, who have thought of everything. Immaculate accommodation and use of most of their grand home.
