"A wonderful, relaxed and gracious home with all those different places to eat and drink with the commanding views wherever we went... surveying your little piece of paradise. Quite overwhelming."

"The highlight of our visit to the beautiful South Island of New Zealand was staying at Edenhouse where the Martins made us so comfortable that we returned for a second visit prior to returning to France. We were most impressed with the local vineyards and restaurants, the amazing scenery, and Abel Tasman National Park. We look forward to returning very soon for more of the Martin's great hospitality."
