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.

Spectacular location at the end of the Knysna East Head. Very attentive management host. Decor in the lounge could be more opulent to fit the beauty of the apartment. The bathroom is wonderful however. Jacuzzi is private and has amazing view

Incredible and spacious double storey penthouse with 4 bedroom all ensuite layout. Elevator to all floors assisted us with elderly family members and luggage. Magnificent views from almost every room. Well appointed property with hot tub on the upper balcony as well. Almost every convenience available in the kitchen, dining and scullery areas. Walk to a great restaurant across the property. Access to mini hiking trails, rock pools and the mini Beacon lighthouse from the property. Incredible views of the Heads, Inlet and lagoon and you feel you in the middle of a nature reserve. Perfect for our party of 6 including kids. Excellent attention to detail and service from the hosts and cleaning staff. Definitely can't go wrong here! Will be back!

I booked this astounding apartment with its impressive views of the Knysna heads for my birthday weekend celebration with my family. I was blown away by the perfectly-priced luxurious adequately- spacious apartment for our family of 5. From the time we arrived we were made to feel welcome and once we were settled in by our apartment manager, we made a bee-line for the much talked-about East Head Cafe right at our doorstep. We were entertained with dstv while we lounged on the sofas after our delicious lunch and post-prandial stroll to the viewpoint of the Heads. I was personally impressed with the powerfully-pressured showers which was a welcome respite after my hilly morningrunup to the highest viewpoint with its breathtaking views of the Heads. The kitchen is more than adequately equipped with tea, coffee and milk available. My only negative about this picture-perfect apartment is that there is no WiFi signal in the main bedroom. I would highly recommend this for a super special celebratory weekend treat!

we slept in the penthouse, the apartment is amazing - one of the most beautiful apartments we stayed in. There is also a very nice restaurant and coffee nearby. My only comment is the quality of the TV screen - one of them needs replacement.
