These apartments are second to none. They are modern, clean and superbly equipped. The views are second to none and Mike who manages them is more than helpful and knowledgeable. Would have no hesitation in recommending these.

We spent an awesome 4 nights at Beach House. We all really didn't want to leave!! It is such a stunning place. It has been furnished perfectly (looks and comfort) and the location is fantastic (opposite East Head Cafe, easy to get into town and quiet except for the sound of crashing waves). We loved watching all of the activity... More

It was beautifully decorated, beds are great, the kitchen was fully equipped and there was easy parking for two cars. The East Head cafe is the best restaurant in knysna and it is just across the road for breakfast and lunch. We "braaied"/... More

seriously , I shouldn't . This is the second time we have stayed at this 6 star apartment block . It's now the highlight of our coastal trips . The venue is absolutely brilliant . The apartments are truly exceptional with views to die for . Book this spot and you really dont have to see any more of Knysna... More

This was our third visit to Beacon House. As with both our previous visits everything was perfect. Many thanks once again to the indomitable Mike Elliot for his wonderful hospitality and to the staff for their immaculate care of the appartment. Simply magnificent in every way.

This was our third stay at Beacon House, my personal favorite spot in Knysna. Effortless booking one call and the booking was done. We arrived the day after my birthday and Mike our host remembered it was my birthday and a vase with fresh roses was in the apartment. One thing I have noticed that the apartments are in a... More

Beacon House is the perfect stay in Knysna, with spectacular views, amazing service and very spacious and neat apartments - highly recommended for any business or personal trip.
