Nestled within 48 acres of private grounds and extensive gardens in Nelson, South Island of New Zealand, you’ll find the lavish cottage Edenhouse. Within close proximity to vineyards and national parks, Edenhouse is the perfect getaway from your hectic everyday life. And with only a maximum of six guests at a time, your stay at Edenhouse is intimate and peaceful.


Edenhouse is located at the top of the South Island in the stunning Orinoco Valley, a 45 minute drive from Nelson Airport.

Your room

There are three rooms available at Edenhouse, two of which are situated in the main house where you’ll also find an artist den, library, dinning and living room. All rooms have a Super King bed draped in pure Irish linen sheets, thick cream carpeted floors and delicate furniture pieces. You’ll simply want to melt into bed after returning from a day’s adventure. If you’re looking for a more intimate stay, hole up in the third bedroom located in the cottage adjacent to the main house. The Cottage has its own bathroom, sitting and dinning area, sun deck and excellent amenities; however, you’re more than welcome to make full use of the comforts of the main house.

Why we like it

The intimate and peaceful nature of Edenhouse makes it feel like a gracious country home rather than a hotel. Its location makes it the perfect base for tasting wines, visiting national parks or simply relaxing amongst the tranquil surroundings. Guests also have complimentary access to the exclusive Monterey House Country Club (a prestigious golf and country club) making you feel right at home.
