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

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

We had an awesome time staying here. The view is amazing as is the seat next to the big window in the lounge, to lazily lie in the winter sun and enjoy the scenery. The cottage was neat, clean and in great condition with everything we needed for our two day visit. The fireplace is also great, especially since it... More

You can't beat the view and the facilities are very nice. Great location. Highly recommend you stop at the Red Barn restaurant just up the road for a Sunday lunch. For those that want to get away it is the perfect relaxation destination and only 15 mins away from Knysna central.
