My wife, daughter and I spent several days at the Oystercatcher's Haven. It's location, the attention to detail, the charming and welcoming ambience and, last but not least, the friendliness of Ann-Sue and her staff made it a wonderful experience. We also loved that we could walk down a few steps to the beach and that we had wonderful views... More

I was feeling burnt out at work - I needed to get away for a few days. I needed somewhere quiet and grounding, at the sea. The Oystercatcher’s Haven is where I ended up. The right-on-the beach location at the quiet end of Paternoster (not that there’s a busy end) was truly amazing. I had the beach and rocks all... More

From the moment we were shown our beautiful room overlooking the ocean and the beach just a few steps away, we felt privileged to be staying in such a perfectly located place. The house is beautifully decorated, extremely comfortable and the accommodation is very good value for money. Our hosts were friendly and made such an effort to ensure our... More

We have just stayed at this charming B&B for two nights...and the service and location are fabulous! Our host Ansu just could not do enough for us..and we even had an Otter come and drink out or the pool one evening. This is a very special place with the most amazing views.

We LOVED staying at The Oyster Catcher's Haven. Upon arrival we were met by the lovely Ansu, who treated us like family the whole time were were there (we even went out dinner with her one night, we enjoyed her company so much). She even made us a platter of cheese, biscuits and fruit one night we stayed in. We... More

Loved it, loved it, loved it. The position and view can't be beaten. To open your curtains in the morning and look at the sea is simply wonderful. Lovely room, friendly service, great breakfast. Next time we're staying for a week. Also highly recommended: Gaatje restaurant - superb. Voorstrandt is more of a lunch place.

I could not praise this place enough. Right on the beach. Loving, friendly service and fabulous rooms. It has been under the new management for 4 months and judging from reviews the new owners have maintained the quality the previous long term owners were noted for. We had the suite which was spacious and characterful. Great start the day breakfasts.... More

What an idyllic plea to stay. There are wonderful views across the beach and to the sea from the accommodation - you really are virtually on top of the beach. Sue-Anne was delightful and produced very original and tasty breakfasts - she even thoughtfully booked us in to two local restaurants for our evening meals, which was much appreciated. The... More
