I didn't want to write a review for this place as we were hoping to keep it to ourselves. Anyway, it's beautiful. We had room 3 (the suite) lots of room and beautifully furnished in an African way. We stayed 2 nights & wanted to stay a third but it was fully booked. Lovely.

Our stay here was just what was needed after a cold damp English winter! Sue Anne and Sarah looked after us so well, with lovely breakfasts and help for all our needs. The situation above the beach (it is actually a short walk below) is wonderful and you can just relax on the terrace and watch the tide come in... More

We spent four wonderfully relaxing days at this beautiful Guest House at the quieter (southern) end of Paternoster, the peace and tranquillity broken only by the melodious crashing of the waves on the rocks. Our room was well-appointed and equipped and Sarah and her team are to be congratulated on keeping the house spotlessly clean, serving a beautifully prepared breakfast... More

A lovely overnight stay. Sue Anne and her staff were very welcoming. The house has a fantastic position with fabulous views over the rocks and beach at a quiet end of Paternoster. Breakfast was imaginative and special and I would recommend this inn to anyone.

Right on the beach, with a shady terrace. Paternoster is a beautiful white and blue resort where seals and whales can be seen. Oystercatcher's Haven is a spacious and comfortable house. Great breakfast and friendly hosts.

To keep the rating several renovations should be done. If done it will be a highly recommendable venue. We enjoyed to be there in spite of the few shortcomings. We shall come back during one of our next trips to South Africa, hoping that the renovations are done

Nestled in the dunes with a clear view of the rugged coastline, Oystercatchers Haven lived up to expectations. .Sarah looked after us very well. Breakfast was beautifully presented. Stay in loft suite if you can.

Wonderful stay, especially enjoyed the privacy of each beautifully designed terrace with spectacular sea views. The breakfast was delicious with each course presented differently. Next time we hope to see the otters!
