Unfortunately Jen was not well and wasn't able to make us dinner which I had really looked forward to since she has so many great reviews and since I had had more than enough animal products whilst traveling in South Africa. They were all very pleasant people, I really like thei…

Peace of Eden is the perfect place to escape back to nature. I could not believe how sparkling clean the tent that I stayed in was. (I'm really scared of spiders, so I was literally crawling around every corner to check). The bed was super comfy and it was wonderful to fall aslee…

They were a lovely friendly couple, though seems they forgot half the review ;-) They stayed in a forest Tent for one night. And seemed to love it as their private comments were... Thanks Jen! It was amazing. The food was incredible.

Stunning location, if a secluded stay in the knysna forest is what you looking for then these tents are great. However if you looking for a one night, stop over these facilities might not be for you. After an initial mishap with the booking, Jen was kind enough to still help out …

I am sorry you found some things not to your liking, I wish you had said that when you arrived, and not taken the Tent which was obviously too rustic for your tastes. I did explain that this Garden Tent does NOT form part of my offerings on Air BnB so it is a pity your review taints my other Forest Tents, and your rating lowers my overall rating too! As I have only had glowing 5 star reviews for them and all my other Cottages. In response to your private comments: I make no apology for the wonderful wild life you experienced from insects to a myriad of 'bugs' flying around, and re your comments about the lack of lighting, this is incorrect as there are electric lanterns along all the forest pathways and outside every ablution hut. Lighting is minimal so as not to disturb the nature, a torch is useful but not necessary with the lighting that is there. Towels could have been requested, mattresses were the best I had for this make shift Tent, and you are the only folk who complained about the mattresses or the towels as most know there is a severe drought in the area. Blessings for a wonderful 2018

This is an authentic Knysna forest stay. Definitely recommended for those who enjoy the great outdoors. Jen was very nice and offered us a cottage that was also available at the time.

If you want to experience the Knysna forest, peace and tranquility then this is the place to go. The forest tents are amazing! Jen’s vegan meals are incredible and delicious (and I’m not vegan)
