About Cliffhanger Cottages

Cliffhanger Cottages are located along the Rheenendal road where you can enjoy the peace of the unspoilt country, yet are only a 15-minute scenic drive on a tar road to the centre of Knysna. Buffalo Bay, a beautiful and safe swimming beach is also a 15-minute drive and the Knysna forest is 10 minutes away.

Cliffhanger cottage is a very spacious chalet featuring one bedroom, a bathroom with basin, bidet and a very large shower with a view, an open-plan lounge, dining and fully equipped kitchen all warmed by a fire pot on those chilly winter nights.

A covered and semi-enclosed deck with Weber braai completes the picture. The deck has a comfortable couch as well as chairs and side table. TV, media player and satellite decoder with easy view. For the full DSTV guests must bring their own decoder and smartcard. All rooms have large windows facing the panoramic view.

CLIFFEDGE COTTAGE is completely private, once there you could be the only people in the world. Spectacular is the word that describes the views from this modern self-catering timber cabin.

From the spacious deck you look down on the trees and the birds flying in the valley below, across to the Knysna forest with the Outeniqua mountains beyond.

If you are on honeymoon or just want to spend some quality time with your partner in total privacy then this is the place to be with a spacious open plan design flowing onto a full-length deck, a large shower with a view, luxurious furnishings and a fully equipped kitchen, Cliff Edge Cottage has all you need for a fabulous break.

everthing of the nice place

Cliffhanger Cottage is a wonderful wooden cabin perched on the edge of a deep valley. The views are stunning, but what really struck us was the complete quiet (except for bird calls) that descends after dark. The peace is indescribable. We were only there for a night, but plan to return for a longer stay in the not too distant future. The cottage is well equipped for cooking and braaing. The lounge, bathroom and bedroom all face out over the valley. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We absolutely loved the Cliffhanger unit. Layout was perfect with seperate bedroom, and seperate bathroom, and open plan kitchen and lounge.The view is spectaucular. It is so quiet and tranquil. The birds is friendly and chirpy. Weather was absolutely perfect.I recommend this place to anyone loving self catering, away from the noise and very private.I will defnitely go back to this place if we are visiting Knysna again.Close to Plett, Knysna, Sedgefield, Wilderness, and more.

Great apartment with kitchenette, beautifully decorated and near some excellent restaurants, cafes, and a wine shop. Good wi-fi and an easy 5 min drive into Hermanus. Oh, and the complimentary bottle of wine was a lovely touch!
