About Cliff House

Live life on the edge. Knysna’s Eastern Head is one of the world’s most exclusive residential addresses. Here you will discover the delights of Cliff House, an exceptional property occupying one of the area's best oceanside locations. Perched on the very edge of the Head’s majestic sandstone cliffs high above the Indian Ocean, its dramatic position and unrivalled views will simply take your breath away.

This totally unique residence offers uninterrupted sea views from every room. Nature lovers will revel in boundless marine life and birdwatching opportunities, especially from the property’s exclusive whale-viewing platform.

The elegant simplicity of the building’s architecture and the ‘Zen’ quality of its décor and furnishings will invite you to be at one with the natural environment while enjoying every possible creature comfort.

Making maximum use of natural light and textures, the accommodation is arranged on four mezzanine levels. It offers three light and airy double bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and stylish en-suite bathrooms, in addition to a studio apartment with a mini-kitchen and an outside shower.

The stylish and well-equipped kitchen-dining room offers magnificent ocean views, as does the main lounge and additional sitting-dining space. Folding external glass doors allow all areas to be opened to create free-flow access to the great outdoors. A portable braai unit is available to guests, while the fire pit offers an extraordinary setting for sundowners and good conversation.

Cliff House is designed for sensual pleasure and total relaxation. Set within an attractive indigenous garden, the superb 18 m rim-flow lap pool and adjacent Jacuzzi will tempt you to watch for whales and dolphins while soaking up the African sun.

A boardwalk leads down from the pool area to a delightful oceanside viewing platform; perfect for whale and dolphin watching in season. Walk a little further and you arrive at the newly constructed Clifftop fire pit; the ideal location for a sundowner in front of the dancing flames.

The state-of-the art home entertainment system provides music throughout the house and the LCD TV screens, located in the master bedroom and lounge, offer satellite channels and DVD viewing for lazy evenings at home.It has a built in guest safe for the security conscious guests.

There are numerous restaurants, supermarkets and shops in the Knysna waterfront, quays and town centre less than a 10-minute drive away. Knysna and nearby Plettenberg Bay offer excellent opportunities for all manners of outdoor pursuits.

      The Cliff House is very comfortable house at the endof the heads. The view and the pool are awesome. Unfortunately the rooms are all a bit damp. The kitchen equipment is ok, the toaster was not really working and we had to buy good wine glasses to enjoy our wine. Three of six sunbeds were broken and the management told us that new one will come.  It would have been nice to have a welcome sheet with someone restaurant tips and some fresh flowers or a bottle of wine. At least we had enjoyed our stay there.

      This house is as gorgeous as the pictures and you will not be disappointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.Our only complaint was the fact that the property managers seem to have forgotten we were coming.

We called them after collecting the cars from the George Airport to let them know we were coming. They asked us to run our errands, like shopping, first before coming through to the house. We did not do this as we wanted to check-in first. When we arrived, they were only cleaning the...

      Cliff House is a really awesome location with a magnificent architecture, the view is absolutely spectacular. Hadley was very friendly and did a professional job. Unfortunately, it was raining during our stay; we therefore could not use it fully as a summer house as it is probably meant.

      We spent 5 nights at the cliff house, it is the absolute perfect location in Kynsna with amazing views of the heads and the Indian ocean. The hot tub and pool are also awesome and the views from within the house are incredible.Definitely recommend this one.
