Overview

Peace of Eden . . . This enchanting eco forest retreat styled Lodge nestles on the edge of indigenous forest where creativity abounds and the sounds and sights of nature will entertain you.
This eco Retreat offers a variety of creative accommodation options. You can choose to stay in a woodcutter cottage over looking fields and forest, a spacious loft style converted Barn Cabin, a cosy small Barn cabin close to paddocks and horses and a quaint double-storey cottage that oozes magical charm. For the more serious nature lover there are safari styled tents on timber decks in the forest.

This dream like destination is part of a 'Conservancy' in the heart of the Garden Route, only 15 km's from Knysna along a picturesque country road leading to Rheenendal Village.

Your magical destination is close to Knysna Town, the lagoon, forests and the beautiful white sandy beaches of Buffalo Bay and Brenton on Sea, and with most of the popular attractions of the Garden Route a mere one hours drive away.

Influenced by its beautiful surroundings, Peace of Eden takes care to emphasize the wonder of it's nature filled setting. Monkeys, bush buck, porcupine and a stunning variety of birds all find sanctuary here, amongst many others. Wake up to the sound of chattering monkeys and fall asleep to a symphony of frogs and crickets.

We have a resident FGASA nature guide and a licensed South African tour guide as part of our staff.

If you are a music enthusiast you may just be lucky enough to be visiting when they host an impromptu sunset soiree or are in the midst of recording the likes of Nate Maingard, Gary Thomas, Guy Buttery or Dan Patlansky in their award winning Music Studio.
Take time off to chill out at the lily pond, or partake of some healthy delights from the Vegetarian Bar or grab a surf board / mountain bike from the closest staff member and head off to explore the nearby forest, beach and Wilderness.

On site, get in touch with nature and pick veggies and herbs in the organic garden, feed the friendly horses an apple or explore the indigenous forest walks that meander down to a magical little stream where you are bound to have sightings of the stunning Knysna Loerie, shy bush buck and playful vervet monkeys that scamper along the forest canopy.

Whatever your reason for being here, it does not matter, just come and be, inspired.

Guest Comments

Lovely setting, comfortable cottages and good hosts. We were not disappointed. The forest tents look amazing.
- Marc Van Der Walt

Very disappointing. The shower was not working well and the tablecloth outside was broken. It looked like everything was just very old. Will not be going back there in the future.

Lighting needs to be fixed in and around the cabin.

- Karin Trout-Jantjes

A wonderful stay at Peace of Eden. The setting is very beautiful and the fireplace was a bonus for the cold nights. We will be returning soon for some more relaxing.
