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!!...

We stayed in the Cliff Hanger cottage for our honeymoon and could not have been more happy with our choice! The views from every window in the cottage displays the beauty of the Outeniqua mountain range. The cottage is nice and spacious for two people, boasting just about every amenity you may require. You will end up spending a lot...

Thank you for choosing Cliffhanger Cottage as your honeymoon destination. After the 'busy-ness' of a wedding, the peace and quiet at Cliffhanger gives you time to reflect on this special occassion.

Perfect cottage overlooking the forest covered valley. Attention to detail, quality finishes, private and quiet - just the sound of the breeze in the trees and the birds calling to one another. The cottage is well designed and has all the mod-cons needed to make your stay effortless. Absolutely amazing views - even from the shower!

This place is fabulous on all levels. It perches on a hill overlooking a valley of indigenous forest and out over far hills. Inside, the open-plan space is inviting and pristine, with lots of little personal touches that make it seem like home. You can see great care has gone into creating the cottages. Another fab feature is the shower...

Peaceful and tranquil setting in the mountains outside of knysal. We stayed in the more basic cottage called hedge but still very nice. Some great views and very quiet. Don't forget to check out by 10.00

Thank you for choosing CLiffhanger Cottages - although our Hedge Cottage is smaller, and set back from the dramatic drop into the valley, the views are still great. Thank you also, for checking out by 10. ;) This gives us enough time to clean the cottage for our next guests who can arrive any time from 14h00. We hope to...
