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 place is perfectly kept with everything you can ever need. It's a 5 star home and it's very tempting to go back to as it's very luxurious. The location by the sea makes it extra ordinary. I'd recommend it to anyone willing to have a top class service and stay in Knysna.

We had an incredible stay at Beacon House which is exquisitely located at the Knysna Heads with beautiful views and lots to do within walking distance. Beacon House is a gem of a building, tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Would recommend to everyone!
