Excellent place to stay. Nelia was extremely helpfull and friendly. We arrived on a saturday at 3pm and still they managed to help us with accomodation and clean the place by 5pm. Brilliant Service! Excellent value for money, beautiful views and very safe and secure. Would recommend to anyone who want a quiet peacefull week away

We chose this self-catering unit because of our 2 miniature schnauzers. What we found was a lovely unit, well furnished, fully stocked kitchen, clean and tidy. We weren't dissapointed and cant wait to visit again soon!

We stayed at the De Goede Hoop for 3 nights, Micheal who checked us in and Nelia who showed us our villa were both very friendly and informative. The villa was well equipped and the view of the beach and serene surroundings were just perfect for a relaxing getaway for us. We are definitely considering coming back in the near... More

On arrival we were met by the friendly and very sweet manager Corneglia who escorted us to our unit. We had a choice between two beautiful villas. The unit was stocked with all crockery,appliances etc that you could need in a self catering villa. Situated less than a 1min walk from the rocks and the incredible Paternoster beach we enjoyed...

Had a wonderful stay in a sea view studio, the place was well equipped and Cornelia who took us to the place was very friendly and kind. For 4 star accommodation we got a 5 star experience, loved every moment and was exactly what I needed. Well done, you guys will definitely see me again. Matthew and Bianca

We stayed in Nassau A for 4 nights during July 2014. It was our first trip to Paternoster and due to the stressful lives we live these days, just needed a place to rest and do nothing. We found it at La Baleine. It was cold, so no real outdoor activity was possible, except for BBQ, which suited us fine.... More

I can't over emphasise what a treat our trip to La Baleine was. My husband and I have visited the West Coast numerous times over the years, but this stands out as one of the most memorable. The manager, Nelia was very friendly and extremely helpful. She gave us tips and advice on the best restaurants and activities in the... More

We stayed at Katzenellenbogen over the easter weekend in April 2014. The unit is very nicely finished but we found it lacking on basic cleanliness and maintenance. There is no sea views unless you are willing to stand on the porch the whole time. The house next door to the unit, which is privately owned, is not a nice sight... More

The manager and reception was very friendly and accommodating. It was a quick getaway for us. We had an amazing experience. The sea facing view was spectacular. The unit was very comfortable, spacious and clean. I will definitely go back soon

Fresh live crayfish daily from the fishing boat and couple of good restaurants in the village. Shopping mall in nearby town. Good weather , but if it rains ... The accommodation is good enough to...
