Property info

Edenwood House has been a guest house for nearly 27 years now and is a labor of love, transformed into a home from home, for travelers to the beautiful Garden Route. We offer a comfortable and safe environment, with friendly family pets to share. It is one of those special places to stay, that one seeks when planning a holiday or business trip. We pride ourselves on welcoming our guests with true South African hospitality and personal attention. The house itself is nestled at the foot of the Outeniqua Mountains in a tranquil setting called Eden, which is adjacent to the Katberg Nature Reserve. Its meandering garden, tumbling river, and comfortable ambiance make it a sheer pleasure to return to after a day of exploring the Garden Route and surrounds.

Neighborhood info

Eden is in the suburbs, but less than 4 kilometers from center of town, close to The Mall and great restaurants, yet you feel you are in the country and surrounded by nature, but just minutes from all amenities. Best of both worlds! Safe and quite, ensure a peaceful nights sleep.
