After staying in an abundance of backpackers hostels all over New Zealand, my friends and I were never sure what to expect when arriving somewhere new. After arriving in the Abel Tasman area mid-afternoon time we headed to the Information Center who recommended Eden's Edge as a base for the time that we were there. Going by their praises, we decided to go ahead and book a room without checking it out first.
On our arrival, we were speechless. It was absolutely gorgeous! Set in the midst of an orchard in a fairly secluded area, there is no way we would have found it on our own had it not been recommended.
The owners were a lovely couple who spent a lot of time answering our endless questions about everything from the area, down to which of their DVDs we should watch that evening (an impressive collection I might add.. Free of charge). We also took advantage of the free range eggs they had on offer at reception. Towels were also available for a small fee, but it made a nice change from our travel towels for a few days!
The facilities were fantastic, all new and very clean. The communal areas were lovely and modern, so we had no problem making ourselves at home. Some rooms were en-suite, although we opted for a separate bathroom to save a few dollars and our room was literally next door so it was no trouble for us.
I could not recommend this place highly enough and would definitely stay again.
