Gloria in Excelsis Deo!


Edenhope is a place where families and friends live together in nature on the island of Espiritu Santo, Vanuatu.

Established in 2010 by Ruth and Steve Quinto, the sole purpose of Edenhope is to provide a space for individuals to find a greater harmony with nature. Through exploring how we relate with one other, we rediscover our harmony with the whole universe.

We are a nature-based school in a pristine rainforest setting; an environmental laboratory for research and learning that encompasses all aspects of life, practical as well as spiritual. Our collective aim is to flourish and thrive as human beings, as we co-create an uplifting energetic space in which to raise our children to their highest potential.

We offer an Outreach programme consisting of projects to assist our surrounding villages and to provide a conservation-based education centre for the West Coast Santo Mountain Chain – a globally-recognised Biodiversity Hot Spot.

We are realizing that every kind of religious structure is incomplete when it fails to take into consideration its ultimate connection with the natural world. Here we offer the opportunity for people to immerse themselves for long retreats away from the the disturbances inherent in society today.

We have recently completed a pathway into the mountains, which takes one away from the world of thoughts and ideas and into the heart of nature. Here you can live away from the distractions of daily life, close to a source of pure running water coming straight out of the mountainside.

Our land is a gift from God that we care for and nurture, bringing forth an abundance of fruits and vegetables to feed and nourish our community and each other. Life here is Pure in every way.


Our water comes fresh from mountain springs and we live in self-contained bungalows complete with all amenities.

We are here living the essence of community with truly loving human beings, living in harmony with love and appreciation of the natural world.
