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.

Spent two weeks over December/Jan, facilities amazing, could not believe how spacious the unit and patio were, also well equipped with absolutely everything one needs. Convenience of the location and access to the lagoon and amazing view really huge contributors. Staff servicing the unit were very efficient and Mike very hands on in making sure everything 100%, thank you. Brad

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
