Peter and Bobbie have created an inn that has it all--character, charm, elegance, attention to detail, delicious food and a near perfect attunement to the needs of their guests. From the moment we arrived, Peter anticipated our wishes and met them. So, when he heard that we wanted to hike up a mountain despite the snow he arranged for someone...

Bobbie and Peter (and Chilli too) provided an experience far beyond anything we were expecting! With Edenhouse they have created the warm, inviting, personal experience that all good hosts should strive for. Our rooms were immaculately appointed. Nothing was overlooked. The cuisine was farm fresh. Fresher than anything I've experienced in all of my travels. The staff was engaging and...

I came to review with a four because there are some things that just don’t work for us BUT when we saw the perfect record of excellence – and make no mistake this is a fabulous place - we would have felt like we were kicking the delightful Chilli (guest relations Labrador if you haven’t read any earlier reviews) if...

Let me say from the outset that words cannot adequately describe the absolute comfort, class, service, beauty and warmth that guests will find at Edenhouse. We just finished our second stay with Peter and Bobbie and the only reason I am reluctant to try to capture the experience in this review is that I am truly fearful that they will...

We stayed at Edenhouse for only one night on our big tour of the South Island, but what a treat. The hosts were welcoming. The cottage where we stayed was immaculate, with modern amenities and old world character. The meals were absolutely outstanding-- a true delight-- with a four course dinner of local produce, fish and other foods and a...

This was a truly outstanding experience. The property is stunning- situated in the beautiful Motueka river valley. I could wax lyrical about this for hours but the other reviewers have captured the essence of Edenhouse far better than I could hope to do. There is a reason why there are only 5 star reviews on Tripadvisor - it really is...

Simply put, Edenhouse is a hidden gem that embodies sophisticated relaxation. The Edenhouse experience is reminiscent of staying at a favorite, yet refined aunt and uncle's house. Bobbie and Peter, the owners, graciously welcome you into their home and quickly make it known that your happiness and well-being are of top priority. Without being overbearing in the slightest, Bobbie and...

My husband and I started our honeymoon in the Nelson area and stayed at this adorable place. Peter graciously met us at the airport.

Very special small luxury lodge. Edenhouse is tucked away amongst beautiful gardens. Hosts Peter and Bobbie think of every detail. Evening drinks by the fire or in the garden, and delicious five star meals cooked by international chefs. I stayed in the Cottage, a peaceful , private spot just steps away from the main house. These few days were destroyed...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in a serene valley in the heart of rural Nelson, Edenhouse is an overdue reminder of the genuine meaning of luxury. This enchanting luxury lodge, set in fifty acres of private grounds and internationally acclaimed gardens has an enviable location - perfectly positioned between Nelson and The Abel Tasman National Park -- it's surrounded by the activities and experiences in which its guests delight. In the June 2016 edition of The Hideaway Report, Andrew Harper concluded of Edenhouse: "It is always a delight to discover a hideaway that I can unequivocally endorse. Edenhouse is a true gem" and "Hospitality just doesn't get any better than this". The Edenhouse "Harper Rating" of 97 out of 100 is the highest-equal among Mr. Harper's assessments of New Zealand's most exclusive and highly regarded luxury accommodation. Edenhouse is finished and furnished to a very high standard with an emphasis on comfort, relaxation, understated luxury, attention to detail, and fine food and wine. Edenhouse accepts only 6 guests thereby retaining the "small boutique lodge" experience. It comes as no surprise that two prestigious publications, Tatler and The Robb Report, included Edenhouse in their 100 Best Hotels of the World. ... more   less
