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
