Peace of Eden is a rustic, eco-friendly peaceful retreat situated in the Garden Route, 8.2km along the Rheenendal Road in Knysna.

Accommodation is earthy and creative, your shower water is golden brown, the drinking water comes straight from the heavens, and know that here in the country, ‘ things’ with 4 legs rule! Peace of Eden is out of the ordinary, so expect flying, creeping and crawling visitors.

We are passionate about animals, wildlife and the natural world and have been vegetarians for decades. Whilst staying here we encourage you to explore and embrace the ethos of our lifestyle. We offer vegetarian cuisine so you can unwind in style whilst we share our knowledge, menus and delicious vegetarian meals in the comfort of your Cottage or you can dine ‘al fresco’ under the boughs of a giant white stinkwood tree.

Conservation

Living in harmony with our environment is something we have taken seriously since we moved to Peace of Eden in 1993 and we have an on-going program to improve our greenness. Here are some things you might like to know:

We recycle wherever possible, use biodegradable detergents and ask you to do the same.

No chemical fertilizers or pesticides have been used at Peace of Eden for over 20 years. We also do not use any herbicides to control alien vegetation.

Our vegetables and fruits are organic and no GM products have been grown.

Drinking and cooking water is supplied as often as you need it. Its literally from the heavens and tastes just like you would expect it to.

Bathing water is from the pond which is maintained in a healthy condition by natural ecosystems. It`s filtered and lightly treated before being pumped into a central system to your cottage or cabin.

Grey water from showers and basins is piped to french drains that diffuse into vegetation at three separate locations.

Brown water from toilets is processed in three separate septic tank systems that are maintained in optimal condition.

Our electricity comes direct from Eskom and we pay an environmental conservation levy. We use energy-saving light bulbs wherever possible.

We have a policy of ‘do no harm’ where ever possible and should it be necessary we will remove and relocate bothersome creepy-crawlies and the like.

Wild animals have free access to all parts of the property except the vegetable gardens. The are no fences at the boundaries of the property in the forest.

We are founder members of the Phantom-Homtini Nature Conservancy.
