A long weekend away with a few friends became a truly relaxing break thanks to the stunning accommodation at Apartment 1, Beacon House. The spacious apartment with state of the art fittings, stylish décor and luxurious finishes made our visit a 5 star stay. Highly recommended! Regards Liesl

After spending a wonderful 5 weeks at Beacon House in 2012 we returned recently for an equally marvellous 11 days. Many thanks to the exceptionally enigmatic Mike Elliott for once again looking after our every need. A luxurious base from which to explore the Garden route, Beacon House is indeed a very very special home from home.

This is a fantastic, good value, romantic getaway in Knysner. The owner is very helpful and showed us to one of the beautiful apartments on the 2nd floor. Views from all of the windows were simply stunning. These are self service apartments with all of the equipment available for self service, if one wishes. Breakfast is available across the road,...

We made a reservation at Beacon House for 3 nights and after arriving decided to extend it to 4 nights. Excellent apartment with nothing lacking. Awesome views and what made it even better is that we had the most fantastic weather. Mike Elliott is a very professional and friendly "host". He met us on our arrival and was there when... More

We stayed in this 3 bed apartment for 4 nights. It was fabulous! Very luxurious. Spacious, tastefully decorated, with modern kitchen and granite surfaces. Most of all the views were to die for. I could have spent the whole time just sat on the balcony overlooking the Heads. This really is one of the most beautiful locations in Knysna. Just... More

One couldn't ask for a better self-catering spot in Knysna. The apartments are well appointed with every mod con that you could think of. We never saw the cleaning staff, yet, each day, the apartment was restored to its pristine state. The views are far from shabby. Highly recommended.

Still one of the best in Africa! Fantastic accommodation. Mike always strives towards performance excellence! We know this management since 1994! Well done. A home away from home! You will never beat the view!
