The view never gets old, the interior is fantastic, the cleaning crew was awesome and the outside area is spacious and well equipped. If you are looking for a place to rest and relax in total comfort, Beacon House is...

We visited Beacon House about 18 months ago, and have been wanting to return ever since. We were fortunate to spend another week here in late April. I can honestly say that the apartment is even better than we remembered! The units are beautifully furnished, and immaculately maintained. Everything is to the highest standard. Mike really makes you feel like...

We visit Beacon House at least once a year and Time and time again, the apartments are absolutely spotless, well maintained, and an absolute breath of fresh air. The units have everything you need, and more! Arriving to our 'home away from home' we're always welcomes with a bunch of fresh roses which is my personal favourite apart from the...

The most amazing place to stay in Knysna. Incredible views while listening to the waves lapping. Words can't describe the view of the Heads, the lagoon, the mountains and the attentive service. Completely luxurious. Restaurants are a stones throw away. From someone who travels and stays in the best the world has to offer , this is villa accommodation up...

Stunning view of the Heads and Ocean. East Head Cafe right in front of the building is perfect for breakfast. I would recommend this apartment anytime! It has a very nice design and the equipment is brand new. Mike and his service team were very responsive.

The apartment was fitted out to a high standard with everything you could think of. We asked for a parasol for the balcony, and one appeared in no time.at all. We were in Apartment one which is...

We were rather doubtful that Beacon House would live up to its reputation..but it did! We had an excellent week's stay. Our apartment was immaculate and well fitted out. It was a luxury to have it serviced each day. Mike was a great host and very flexible over entry on a Sunday and our exit time. Highly recommended.

This is a very spacious well appointed property with excellent servicing. Views are excellent from the property and whist it location will mean that you will most likely need to drive to find a choice of restaurants this can be no more than a 10 min drive. Café opposite is excellent.

This venue for our annual SA holiday is always good and we look forward to returning each year. It is predominantly used by couples and thus is becoming a bit over priced. This we will consider more seriously for next year.

A truly lovely flat with everything working and spotlessly clean. Although we were only two people this flat would easily cater for more and we would certainly bring friends on another occasion.The staff and owner were both willing and helpful. Great position at the heads with lovely views. Will definitely use again.

Beacon House is situated in close proximity to Fountain Point, a white beacon used as a guiding point for sailors attempting to negotiate the passage through the Heads. Built into the side of a steep slope, Beacon House boasts views both across the lagoon and out to sea. Beacon House is situated within walking distance of the lagoon, a restaurant and a coffee shop and offers ample parking for visitors. ... more   less
