“Second Visit was as wonderful as the first”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

This was my second visit to Eden Villa. Christine and Antony are wonderful hosts and have opened their lovely home and garden to people.
Wonderful rooms, beds, amenities. A quick walk to Mt Eden Village which has lovely shops, restaurants and pubs.
Skip the downtown Auckland hotels, Eden Villa is THE place to stay in Auckland. I cannot wait to return. They make me feel like family.

We cannot speak highly enough of this B&B. The room was lovely leading out onto a beautiful garden. The furnishings were of a very high standard and yet it felt like home. This was largely due to Christine and Anthony who were excellent hosts and were genuinly interested in looking after us. Everything was immaculate and the location was great in that it was very quiet yet within walking distance of many restaurants, a great bookshop and other interesting stores. We will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Choose the room with doors to the garden.

This delightful villa will surely impress you. My partner and I had a few nights at Eden Villa before our wedding day at Mantells and boy was it a glorious three night stay. Christine and Antony made us feel right at home with their amazing hospitality, scrumptious breakfasts and warm atmosphere. Their place is so tastefully decorated that we had most of our wedding photos taken there. I highly recommend this place.

We spent 3 nights and loved it. Coming from a rural setting in North Canterbury we wanted a garden view and privacy, a home away from home rather than an inner city hotel. Christine and Antony gave us a warm welcome and showed interest in us.They have a natural flair and way with people. They were interesting and enthusiastic. We loved our room which opened into their north facing garden and the attention to detail made the suite most comfortable. Great breakfasts with wholesome food just to our taste. We enjoyed stimulating discussions with other guests over breakfast. The location was perfect for us with family not far away and the local village was easy to walk to. With open spaces nearby there are great walks and the trip to Eden Gardens and Mount Eden were delightful. For NZ hospitality, local scenery and a family home atmosphere of a high standard I felt proud to be a New Zealander. We will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms looked great. Ours was smaller but very restful.

We stayed at the beginning of October for one night, wanting to end our trip to the North Island in style, and we weren't disappointed. The rooms are full of beautiful anique furniture, and the bathroom was immaculate. Everything, including the hosts, was charming, but our favourite feature was the Kitchen, which had been restored to show the original Kauri wood timbers in the wall, absolutely stunning. We found the location was fine for seeing the city, we were able to park on the street outside without restrictions. Being in the area also gave us the opportunity for a quick trip to the top of Mount Eden, looking down into the extinct caldera and see amazing views down over Auckland. We would be happy to recomend Eden Villa to anyone visiting Auckland.

My partner and I spent the last two nights of our NZ trip at Eden Villa in September after a recommendation from a colleague and we couldn't have had a more relaxing and enjoyable stay. Christine and Anthony were delightful hosts and made us feel very much at home as well as providing excellent suggestions for meals and places to see in Auckland. The rooms are spacious and amazingly presented, the street is quiet but the location is ideal for a short walk up to shops, restaurants and cafes as well as being very close in to Auckland. The breakfasts were wonderful and we had a delightful time at the house chatting to Christine and Anthony and winding down after a hectic few days of travel. A truly wonderful experience!

Room Tip: We stayed in the front room, with a view to the street - delightful!

A stay with Christine & Antony at their delightful classical villa emphatically proves why staying at such a B &B is so preferable to staying at even the best five-star hotel.
Situated in the delightful village of Mt.Eden within the city of Auckland, and with the actual Mt. Eden at the bottom of their garden, Christine & Antony provide you with an opportunity to share their beautifully furnished and appointed home as though you were long lost friends rather than paying guests. Their hospitality is truly remarkable! The facilities provided are off the highest standard throughout , the breakfast is completely home-cooked or baked and nothing is too much trouble for this delightful couple. You will not find a better or more genially hosted B & B anywhere. Just book it!

Room Tip: No problem ...............all the rooms are of the same very high standard.
