Fantastic cottage furnished beautifully and kitchen is kitted with every gadget one needs for a perfect and comfortable stay few metres away from the beach. We have booked only for 2 nights but wished we stayed longer.

Beautiful location in a very special part of the world. Never visited west of Cape Town and it was superb. Much less travelled and more simple than around CApe Town. Very pretty village with plenty of restaurants and services to keep you going. Locals very very friendly. Sea extremely cold. La Baleine was superb. Having just got off the plane...

A wonderful, comfortable and most well equipped place to stay. Only negative mention was no waste bin in second bedroom and not enough towel rails. Kitchen was superbly appointed. Beds comfortable with lovely linen. A place to recommended and to visit again

This is a very elegantly designed apt located in a quiet and peaceful area near the beach. Everything was perfect especially the tasteful and refined bedroom, kitchen and the "relaxation" Atlantic Sea-styled terrace overlooking the sandy beach. Service was fantastic and manager so kind and professional.

Located at the south end of the beautiful Paternoster beach, these apartments are very comfortable and well equipped. Cornelia is a gracious host, full of good advice on what to do in this charming little village, where everything is within walking distance. But the ocean view is the best feature. Happy to come back!

We had a lovely soft landing to be able to stay here, as we were looking to buying a place in Paternoster. The service was very good and had a beautifully cat that visited us every day. BUT the crime is so bad you have to lock up very thing and I mean ever thing.

Wonderful reception, well appointed large house, incredible views. Great eateries in walking distance. We did not use our car once in 4 days. Can't wait to return. One tip for management: add curtains to the masterbedroom in the Rijger. The light through the blinds woke us up at 5.30 a.m., but we managed by taping blankets to the window :-)
