My wife and I spent 7 days in the Cliffedge Cottage for our honeymoon. We were met by Ingrid who invited us into the cottage and provided us with a quick run down of the cottage and Knysna as a whole. Our first impression was being blown away by the view of the forest valley which the cottage overlooks. Pictures...

Thank you for your glowing review! We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your honeymoon with us. As you mention, although the scenery is great, there is always something to grab your attention. The many birds that visit the birdbath, and the monkeys in the distant trees. Mosquitos - yes, unfortunately they remain a pest in Summer. There are electronic...

We had a lovely 4 days in this very well equipped cabin - the accommodation is incredibly well designed and finished, maximising the views and the space. We were in Cliffhanger, which has great views from the shower, bed and lounge area - just wonderful. I found the bed a little too firm for my taste, but clearly this is...

A wonderful way to begin the new year!! We stayed a week to get away from our busy lives to total tranquility and remoteness. The log cabin is located in a beautiful location facing the forest. It's well equipped, clean and comfortable. The owners are really helpful and respectful of your privacy. We were given great advice on hikes and...

This little romantic cottage is well situated for a couple that would like to take it easy, be close enough to pop into Knysna and surroundings, but be just outside of reach of the "hustle-n-bustle", and we found it to be exactly that. It has an absolute stunning view, and is very well situated in terms of privacy. The accommodation...

We had a fantastic stay at Cliffhanger, in Cliff edge cottage. We chose the open plan chalet as this is how we live at home. Wowee that view.... from the moment you walk through the door you are captivated by the amazing forest views. You are literally living in the forest !!! Everything is spotless and it's evident from the...

Cliffhanger's name doesn't disappoint. The views are incredible and the cottage is very neat and stylish. Thank you Barry and Ingrid for your hospitality. We wished we could stay longer, but we'll be back.

My fiance and I stayed at Cliffhanger Cottages for three days in Rheenendal and it fit our needs to the T. The view was stunning, the cottage clean, the furniture comfortable, fresh towels, with them being in an elephant shape a nice touch. All the needed basics were there, the description of the area thorough by the host and access...

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed a peaceful break at Cliffhanger Cottage. Surrounded by incredible forest views, we felt truly at home in this well appointed cottage. If you are looking for a quiet getaway then I would highly recommend it. Summer or winter, Barry & Ingrid have thought of everything.

A little of heaven! Was the most memorable weekend, definitely worth the drive from CPT for 2 days of relaxation! The view is breath taking!! The hike in the Reenendal forest is a must. (It costs R20 per person to get into the park so remember to take cash as they don't accept cards)

We're thrilled to hear that you so enjoyed your stay with us - in heaven!! It is a long drive from Cape Town, but that all melts away when you put your feet up and drink in the view (and a glass of wine ;) ) I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed the lovely forest so close to us!!...
