We had an absolutely fantastic time staying in a Penthouse at the Beacon House in February of 2016. Every window and balcony features fantastic views of The Heads and you can hear the waves breaking a little further out which is very relaxing to listen to. The lodging itself is very luxurious and meticulously maintained. The location, right on The... More

This is an absolute gem! We stayed in one of the penthouses and the living room glass wall opens up to a panoramic view that is indescribable. Perfectly equipped with top of the line furnishings and appliances. Beyond luxury was the service. Mike and his team were extremely welcoming and helpful. We will certainly be back....

When we arrived we joked with Mike that we'd have to give him a less than 5 star review to help manage peoples expectations. It doesn't matter though how high your expectations are as this place will exceed them. Beautiful location, terrifically well equipped, luxurious and well serviced there is only one downside. Anyone who's stayed here before will definitely... More
