On the start of our New Zealand roundtrip we booked 2 nights at Eden House end feb 2013.
First of all, Carole and Richard are wonderful people !
A warm welcome to start with (we arrived very late and still got a nice diner served !!), they make you feel at home in their lovely house overlooking their own tropical forest (!), you get plenty of info to explore their region (Smuggler's bay is a place we would never have found ourselves, so thanks again Richard) ... real hosts !
Food : the breakfast (cereals and cooked) is better than in any other place we stayed, and the Bhutan diner is absolutely something you should try (I don't want to reveal any details as I don't want to spoil the fun of any future guests, but we had a great laugh, thanks to both of you).
Room: our room (Vista suite) was very spacious, impeccable clean and very comfortable. The view from the bedroom is just stunning, you get a private terrasse and lots of privacy. The pool is just a few steps down. The pictures on their site is really what you get !
Price-Quality you will not find a better place ...
Thanks and hope to be back one day.
