My wife and I explored New Zealand for our three week honeymoon, and stayed at a dozen places from the Northland to Stewart Island. We both think that Eden House was by far the best stay we had.
There are many places in New Zealand with good facilities, good views, good food, and good service. Richard and Carole not only excel at providing each of these, they take pride in it and do it naturally. We stayed at a few homestays after Eden House and none of them felt quite as close to home.
Another guest joined the house on our 2nd day, just for overnight, and happened to be from New Zealand with some business in the Northland. He lauded that Richard's wonderful breakfasts were the reason he stayed there, and worth the price of the stay itself!
I won't speak more to the views and food, and instead let the pictures do the talking. Richard and Carole we can't thank enough though. A card and some bubbly for our honeymoon, splendid hospitality, and the priceless fondness of a few friends across the Pacific. Thank you both!
