We stayed for 2 nights in these beautiful cottages which have great views. The units do not have air conditioner which would put me off re-visiting in the summer months, other than that the place was perfect. Two of the cottages are on steep hills so be aware if traveling with elderly folks. The units are spacious which is always...

We found everything perfect. Great service, great view, clean, well equipped. The only note we had was that one of our days happened to be really hot there and aircon would have made things more comfortable. Highly recommended!

We loved Cliff Edge cottage and it is perfect for a relaxed break with a spectacular view over the forests. We admired the attention to detail in the comfortable, well designed cottage - spacious bedroom cum living room. A day bed on the deck enables you to enjoy sundowners, and early morning coffee in comfort. Very well located for the...

Thank you for your review of CLiffEdge Cottage - our cottages are perfect for nature lovers, and those looking to "wash the city from your soul" - Quite correct, if you're looking for action then this is not the right address! Offering peace and tranquility is what we're all about. :)

Our stay at cliff edge was wonderful, I can stay there forever. Beautiful views and sound of nature. We will definitely become regular customers there... The only downside was it was extremely hot and there wasn't any aircon.

Great to hear that we will see you again - This Summer we have had some remarkably hot days. We hope the fans, at least, were able to give you a bit of relief.

Truly magnificent landscape of the Knysna Forest... ... the view of the breathtaking Knysna Forest can be seen from the well maintained deck, the homely lounge, neat and tidy bedroom as well as the spacious bathroom. The peace and tranquility of the Cliffhanger cottages was what I needed after the submission of my thesis. Thank you

Wonderful to hear that you were able to simply put your feet up - and relaaaaax :) "Wash the city from your soul" - renew and refresh....all come to mind. This is how we like our guests to feel when they (sadly) have to leave.

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...
