Farr out is not far out at all and a short trip to the town. The facilities were modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Marion was very hospitable and gave us some great advise where to go to keep the kids entertained on a rather miserable day.

Great stay over 3 days. Appreciated hospitality of hosts Marion and Dion. Breakfasts were delightful and well prepared in quaint portions. Rooms were fresh and inviting with a touch of the West Coast quite visible.

Farr Out is the guesthouse you dream about - the one that does it all right! The setting is sublime, the rooms immaculate and beautifully equipped, the breakfast varied, and the owners (Marion and Deon) absolutely delightful. I cannot say enough good things about Farr Out - it is wonderful!

So much to discover at Farr Out! Cosy rooms with all you need for an extra comfortable stay. The showers have perfect water pressure (yes, there are hairdryer, shampoos and and other amenities too, but the shower is really worth mentioning)! For an extra special treat we can recommend the outside Hot Tub. (we were very lucky: it was a...

Hello Volker, Maika, Felix, Amelie and Marlene, that a nice family to host, what a pleasure! Always fun when you are visiting! Great to hear that you had some special time for the Hot Tub as well to recharge some batteries... Looking forward already to your next visit, hopefully still this year to tackle all your goals on your "to-do-list"...

After 18 years we were curious to return to Paternoster. We found a village that has grown considerably and a far increased choice of BB. We were happy with our choice and enjoyed the location outside of Paternoster. Marion is an attentive host and helpful with recommendations. The rooms are nicely decorated, with the beds though somewhat too soft to...

Pretty surroundings with peculiar wigwams for BBQ en Jacuzzi. Bed was very comfortable. Very enjoyable stay. Would definitely come again. Situated a short distance from town - ideal for a good morning run. Check-in and check-out easy.

We got married on the Saturday and spent the Sunday night here at Farr OUt where we were warmly greeted by Marion who made us feel at home in the first 5 minutes.

Farr Out is a lovely little guest house just a couple minutes from the coast of Paternoster. It's lovely and peaceful with minimal neighbours and quite an artistic feel to it with it's Wig Wam accomodation, Turkish garden and wood-fired hot tub beneath the stars (this was my favourite). I would truly recommend Farr Out as your home base whilst...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The few minutes drive from Paternoster 'Center' to Farr Out is not what you would exactly call far. But when you arrive in this sandy bushveld wilderness, you do feel pleasingly remote. Crunching up the glinting shell pathway you can see across an indigenous garden and right out to sea. Catch the glimpse of the last manned lighthouse of South Africa situated in nearby Cape Columbine Nature Reserve or listen to the foghorn and cuddle up.Go on; be extravagant, enjoy your vacation! Four luxury rooms PLUS our new Wigwam Rising Moon will make your stay comfortable and unforgettable in our guesthouse. Your hosts speak English, German and Afrikaans.The perfect 'off the beaten track' breakaway. About 2 hours from Cape Town centre. ... more   less
