The Edge House No. 6 is unique in more than one way: Clinging spectacularly to a hillside just above the Knysna River, it offers refined luxuries amidst the treetops.
The daring setting of one of the nicest Golf and Country Estates is certainly remarkable. However, it is the design that truly charms the eyes and flatters the senses.
Featuring an understated exterior architecture, the effect once you step inside is overwhelming. Designed like a loft with a ceiling to floor panorama front, the

Edge House No. 6 commands a magnificent view of the lush valley fed by the Knysna River far below and the Outeniqua Mountains in the backdrop.
Within spitting distance of vibrant Knysna – the lodge is located at a mere eight minutes’ drive from the waterfront – the EdgeHouse, however, is a quiet retreat at the heart of nature.
A welcome drink is served on the Viewing Deck, a terrace that juts out into the void like an over-dimensioned diver’s board. Slow down to savour the pristine surroundings, taste the fresh air, trail the course of a distant eagle and leave the hustle and bustle of everyday life far below.
Set off exploring on a long hike, a leisurely stroll or kick up some dust with the EdgeHouse’s mountain bikes. Without room for doubt, the region is one of the most scenic in all of South Africa.
Later, reward yourself with a professional treatment at the Simola Spa or enjoy a wonderfully relaxing massage in the comfort of your suite. And on a different day, try to pick up the knack of fly-fishing or cruise down the Knysna River on a boat tour.
Golfers will be delighted at the chance to play one of Africa’s most talked-about courses. The 18-hole championship golf course is ranked among South Africa’s top ten golfing venues.
Another word on the EdgeHouse No. 6’s intriguing design: Conceived by an US star designer, the elegant lodge’s countless fine details and clear lines were fused into a single work of art that has won a number of design awards.
At the core lies the ambition to transcend the laws of physics – to create in a place apparently inhospitable: a sheer cliff face. Steel and concrete supports were drilled into the rock to secure the EdgeHouse even in the unlikely event of a landslide.
The delicate engineering feat is a full success: The EdgeHouse No. 6 is doubtlessly one of Africa’s most spectacular buildings: daringly situated and perfectly integrated into the pristine environment.
The distinguished guests are rewarded with a fantastic panorama of the valley and the Outeniqua Mountain Range. And, of course, the facilities are simply outstanding!
Most remarkable, the complex light design especially created for EdgeHouse. Especially at night, the illumination effects that even include lit floor rails create a carefully balanced, romantic ambience.
Only four luxurious guest rooms deliberately limit the lodge’s capacity to eight guests (ten if fold-out beds for children are requested) at any one time. The EdgeHouse No. 6 is supremely exclusive and private.
Moreover, the EdgeHouse’s professional service team takes perfect, warm-hearted care of you and sees to your every wish and request. At INTOSOL we are unanimous: The EdgeHouse No. 6 ranks among the most luxurious and spectacular accommodation options on the Garden Route!
