This is a stunning place to stay. Immaculate cabin, romantic little place and not too far out of town. Its quiet and you have the most amazing view of the Knysna forests. We were there for a weekend in winter and the cabin has a lovely little fireplace. There is a little kitchenette if you wish to make some food... More

I recently had a wonderful stay at Cliffhanger with family. My sister has been before and wanted to come back because she had such a wonderful stay. Needless to say, I understand why she loves the property so much! It's quiet with beautiful views of the valley. We spent plenty of time away, since it's easy and quick to get... More

We had such a great time staying in the Cliffhanger Cottage! A truly magnificent spot, remote enough from Knysna itself so as to gain access to the forest trails, yet within reach of the in-town amenities! Our only regret is that we never stayed longer than the two nights originally planned for! Thanks so much to our lovely hosts; we'll... More

Could not get enough of the views.. in particular from the little balcony and daybed inside. The large bench outside is comfortable enough for a snooze or to relax on and enjoy the view. Views from the shower are awesome, and I spent alot of time on the daybed looking at the forest with a cold beer, or at the... More

Cliffhanger cottages is a very peaceful and secluded venue which is exactly what was needed for my 10 year wedding anniversary. A choice of 3 cottages, 2 of which are great for 4-6 friends and family to use and the 3rd being a nice cosy place for just 2 of u. A view of the Knysna forest all day and... More

I would certainly refer people to this location. The setting and privacy of the cottages is excellent . I believe the availability of Wi-Fi is just the cherry on top as well as the free fire wood. Also you feel very safe on the premises. The demeanor of the owners is also very accommodating. a

We had a lovely time at this cottage. It was very comfortable with great finishes and an amazing view. We will definitely stay there again. We have tried other accommodation in Knysna over the years and this beats them all hands down. The bird life was amazing and i just loved lying on the veranda couch soaking up the winters... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Cliffhanger cottages. we would love return in future. The accommodation is close to so many lovely places. The views are spectacular, the cottage is beautiful and very well e-quiped. We loved the fact that the property is managed to think Green. Some suggestions to improve: Have the outside lights on a timer so when... More
