The pace of life is slow and relaxed. The gardens and sunshine encourage you to do nothing. Surprising, because Edenhouse offers you a whole menu of activities and experiences.

Everything about Edenhouse puts you at your ease – from the graceful architecture of the main lodge, to the birds singing softly on the mature gardens. With only eight guests at any one time you’re assured of peace, space to relax and reassuringly attentive service. But choose Edenhouse as a place to stay and you’ll find that you can easily inject some energy and excitement into your luxury, tailor-made holiday to New Zealand. The beaches, marine preserve and untouched habitats of Abel Tasman National Park are within easy reach. You can take a heli-flight over Kahurangi National Park, go horse trekking on Cape Farewell, fly fishing in the Motueka River, canyoning, cycling round wineries, catamaran sailing, snorkelling, kayaking, hiking through virgin forest, beach hopping…the list is almost endless.
