We had a great stay! The forest tents with the kitchen and showers in the trees are just amazing! Perfect place to relax.

My wife and I enjoyed our honeymoon at Peace of Eden, 29-31 May 2017. We were so blessed to have experienced the beauty of Knysna just before the fires started. We could not have chosen a better place! Our cottage was spacious, clean, thoughtfully decorated and homely :). We experienced breathtaking views, adventurous hiking trails, peaceful wildlife in nature and so much more on our doorstep.
It's like home away from home :) We will definitely be back and book out a tent next time!

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.

A place to come to unwind and to allow nature to restore you. I have stayed here now many times. I am currently in Gwendoline's glade which is a charming cottage surrounded by stunning green trees. Like being bathed in glorious shades of green with the background sounds are of frogs, crickets and bird song. Very helpful and friendly staff and user friendly rustic cottage with all facilities. It is 15 k's from Kynsa and the most magnificent beaches. Highly recommended as a very special place to come and stay.

My wife and I spent six beautiful nights at Peace of Eden from 07 to 13 October 2017. The name says it all. Ìt was peaceful... the birds were singing... friendly monkeys were playing in the trees... A true nature experience... The self catering cottage that we stayed in was comfortable. Howard and Jen were colourful and friendly folk. We will surely be going again.

What a great place. Loved every second. The cottages were cozy, nice and one could believe you are part of a fairy tale. Jen was amazing. Her cooking was out of this world and not one meal was the same. She went out of her way to make our trip special. We recommend this to young and old (we are super seniors!). There is so much to do and see and experience. We will be back.
