Enjoyed two superb days at this fantastic hideaway. Beautiful location overlooking the ocean. Our room was very comfortable and charming. An amazing breakfast on our large terrace above the beach. The views are outstanding. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely return. Roger & Miggy.

Wow! What a superb spot!! It couldn't have been better. We were given a warm welcome by the manageress, Sarah. She and her colleague gave us the local info, booked dinner at a great local restaurant, Gaaitjie. They are excellent. Our room was fabulous, close to the beach. Loved it. The breakfast are not amazing, good but nothing more. It...

Great view, room 2 with nice patio with breakfast service, excellent staff (Sarah made all dinner bookings before our arrival), 4 rooms and space for 4 cars. You should tolerate the old fashion furniture and interior (old English style), though ;-) Private and direct access to the beach, 3 friendly Dogs. Small TV (we do not Need one). Room 1...

This has become my favourite place to stay. Super stylish room/suite (no 3) overlooking the sea. Excellent breakfast, beautifully presented. Lovely staff. Internet connection iffy, but I guess similar everywhere in Paternoster.

The Oystercatchers Haven is a beautiful house, right on the beach. The rooms all have a sea view, are well equipped and spacious . Sarah, the manager, and the entire staff are very service minded and helpful. Sarah made all the restaurant bookings for us. As Paternoster is a busy place, you have to book your meals! Breakfast at Oystercatchers...

We had stunning views of the coastline from every window. Sarah is a delightful and helpful host. She had booked us into excellent local restaurants for each night of our stay. When the weather was calm enough we had breakfast served to us on our own terrace. We had a fantastic time and I would stay there again or recommend...

We were in two rooms and every effort to accommodate us was made. We decided to 'picnic' in as we had been out for lunch. We asked whether it was possible and extra chairs and a tablecloth was presented and we enjoyed our sundowners and picnic on the private balcony. Breakfast was great! The staff were great!.

Beautiful B&B full of character. Loved that they pre-booked awesome restaurants for us. Our room was secluded and it felt as if we were the only ones there. They made us breakfast on the patio every morning. All we did was rest and eat! It was awesome!

The Oystercatcher's Haven is a pleasant small pension on the beach. Rooms and people are charming, breakfast is yummy yummy with an incredible omelette and homemade granola. It's a nice and peaceful place to stay, delightful and old-fashioned in a pleasant way.
