It is against the Eastern head at the mouth to the Indian Ocean, that Beacon House has been created, featuring 4 ultra spacious and luxurious apartments. Beacon House is the ideal base from which to explore the wonders that characterise this spectacular Garden Route town. Each of the serviced apartments provides guests with the flexibility of a self catering environment allowing optimal freedom to design your own itinerary. The design reflects an easy living holiday atmosphere, whilst incorporating sleek modern finishes. A walkway within the development provides residents with access to the various stunning view points at the Heads. 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.

The apartment is wonderful and one of the best we have stayed in. It is better than the pictures. Very spacious and excellent appliances. The hosts went above and beyond to help us have an enjoyable stay. Parking and entry worked perfectly. The view from the apartment and nearby walking options are great

Stayed with wife and teenage daughter. Accommodation was spotless and furnished to a high standard. Well equipped with all you need for a home from home stay. All you need take is your clothes and food. Although self catering, across the road is a lovely cafe/restaurant which serves breakfast as well!! We arrived earlier than anticipated and intended to go fill our time until our agreed arrival but our host wouldn’t hear of it and allowed us early entry so that we could settle in and have a great start to our stay. There are beaches nearby and plenty of activities within a short drive, zip lining, elephant walk, motorcycle museum, quad biking, kayaking, boat trips, diving. The list goes on!

I wouldn’t be first but to express myself:” Wow”. What a wonderful holiday place to stay. Especially if you are planning to be there for a long time. The entire personal stuff. From the booking side to the staff who was meeting us. It’s was unbelievably professional, the warmest ever hosting I experienced in a holiday property.

From the moment we arrived we were thoroughly satisfied with this accommodation….beautiful views, well equipped, comfortable bedrooms, crisp clean bedding and towels, five star cleanliness rating. The views are amazing and bonus was being able to lookout on the Heads while relaxing in the jacuzzi. We look forward to returning. The location is perfect and although directly across a popular restaurant the penthouse provided adequate privacy with the ease of access to a small fairly private beach.

It's a Breath taking place, from the moment you enter to the moment you leave. They is so much to do in the area but the place is so comfortable that you just want to spend the whole day indoor while watching the ocean.

Fantastic views out to the Heads and Lagoon, and our hosts were amazing. The apartment is modern and spacious, wifi, DSTV with all amenities you could think of. We had a great time, it felt like a holiday even though we had business there! Thanks so much again, we will see you again soon!

The accommodation at Beacon House is elegant, first class and beautiful. The interior of the apartments are amazing. The view is out of this world. In general you would be hard pressed to find better accommodation anywhere on the Garden Route. Parking underneath the unit is provided. There is a fantastic restaurant 20 m from the apartment and a small private beach and a lagoon to walk in

It was our second time staying at Beacon House and as with our previous stay we had a fabulous time. The apartments are immaculate and our hosts Sam and Mandy went above and beyond making sure that we were well looked after to have an enjoyable stay. The views are exquisite and absolutely breathtaking. Beacon House is definitely worth a visit.
