Welcome to the Nelson-Tasman region of New Zealand — somewhere special, that’s a place where locals quietly celebrate all that’s good about life; a region that counts its blessings, and rejoices in them, too.

They are blessings of climate, landscape, lifestyle and opportunity, in a place sheltered from the outside world — protected by its surrounding nestling hills and the glorious expanse of Tasman Bay.

The wider Nelson-Tasman region includes three of the country’s 14 national parks — one a coastal paradise (the world-renowned Abel Tasman National Park); one an alpine retreat (Nelson Lakes); and the third, Kahurangi, a vast swathe of virgin rainforest and awe-inspiring mountains stretching across more than 1,000,000 acres. This park is New Zealand’s second-largest and has been mooted for UNESCO World Heritage Site status on account of its botanical treasure trove and storehouse of endemic species.

Owners Peter and Bobbie Martin have quietly developed an impeccable track record among the highest-end of accommodation providers, for the tranquillity, discretion and unforced excellence of their property. Consistently rated by international discerning judges as one of the best lodges in New Zealand, the property is set in 50 acres of private grounds and 12 acres of landscaped gardens.

Guests have the choice of two luxurious suites in the main lodge and the beautifully appointed and very private two-bedroom, two-bathroom garden cottage.

Delicious meals are created from local produce, then matched with award-winning wines from the region that delight the palette.

Edenhouse Luxury Lodge isn’t just a place to stay. Its enviable location is right in the heart of the activities and experiences the region has on offer. Within easy range are the three national parks, picturesque hiking and cycle trails, trout fishing rivers, golf, wineries, arts and crafts, characterful cafes, artisan food producers, charming villages, and the golden, picture postcard beaches of the beautiful Abel Tasman National Park.

From May 2019, each couple staying will enjoy accommodation in excess of 1,000sq ft including two bathrooms
