Frequently Asked Questions
Use the Google Maps link here for GPS.
Turn onto the Rheenendal Road from the N2 between Sedgefield and Knysna. Drive for 8KM and start to slow down, you will pass Buzz Bees on your left, and we are the next gate on the left signposted 'Peace of Eden'. Go through the gate and keep left towards reception. Park in the parking field on the right and ring the bell for attention. Jim, Jen or Howard will greet you. Please send us a Whatsapp on the morning of your booking with your estimated time of arrival.
Do you have wifi?
Yes, we have a 12m line, which is sufficient for most digital nomads. Most of the cottages have a reasonable connection, & the tents can access the internet from the studio deck.
Do you have a TV?
No, most of our guests come here for a break from the noise of their daily routine. Nature is your playground, & should you feel inclined in the evenings - Netflix & chill ;)
What should I bring?
Eco toiletries, mozzie repellent in summer, wood & firelighters, warm jackets & swimwear (can be warm in the day & cool at night), a torch if camping, meat-free groceries if self-catering.
How much nature is around?
Peace of Eden is on the edge of the indigenous forest, directly off a tar road. With our location comes monkeys and baboons, caracal and porcupine, bushbuck and wild boar, birds and bees, spiders and snakes, butterflies and moths. Whilst we celebrate all of these creatures, you will be lucky to see any of them. That being said, if the thought of being surrounded by wildlife is not for you, it's probably best you book into the protea hotel on the main road of Knysna. We are off the grid with our water, so it sometimes is golden with minerals, we supply candles (not generators) for load shedding, and we make fires for warmth and ambiance.
Are you pet friendly?
We do on occasion allow guests to bring their furry friends. We do however consider this on a case-by-case basis. Our property is rented by cats and owned by wildlife, so any canine visitors will need to be on friendly terms with the homies here. If yours fits the criteria, a leash will be required. Let us know if you want to bring a puppy pal along before booking.
