Fantastic views and accomodation; best I have used in Knysna. Location unbeatable, excellent restaurant just across the road; furniture and fittings top class. Pleasure to stay there and I will definitely be back.

What a view, superb setting and a unit to die for. From dealing with Mike on mail to meeting him in person and booking into a beautiful home was a great experience. We definitely plan to be back and enjoy more of the beautiful view and relaxing environment.

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!

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, beautiful cafe. And dinner is readily available in Knysna, 10 minute drive away. But less ambitious food available locally.

Rooms cleaned daily.

No negatives, all positive.

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 we left. Thanks Mike - it was the personal attention which made it worth while. We will definately be back.

Room Tip: All the apartments have an excellent view - so it does not matter which one you get.
