Stunning view of the Heads and Ocean. East Head Cafe right in front of the building is perfect for breakfast. I would recommend this apartment anytime! It has a very nice design and the equipment is brand new. Mike and his service team were very responsive.

We were rather doubtful that Beacon House would live up to its reputation..but it did! We had an excellent week's stay. Our apartment was immaculate and well fitted out. It was a luxury to have it serviced each day. Mike was a great host and very flexible over entry on a Sunday and our exit time. Highly recommended.

This is a very spacious well appointed property with excellent servicing. Views are excellent from the property and whist it location will mean that you will most likely need to drive to find a choice of restaurants this can be no more than a 10 min drive. Café opposite is excellent.

This venue for our annual SA holiday is always good and we look forward to returning each year. It is predominantly used by couples and thus is becoming a bit over priced. This we will consider more seriously for next year.

A truly lovely flat with everything working and spotlessly clean. Although we were only two people this flat would easily cater for more and we would certainly bring friends on another occasion.The staff and owner were both willing and helpful. Great position at the heads with lovely views. Will definitely use again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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.

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. ... more   less
