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

The service and accommodation was outstanding. The breakfasts that were included were absolutely delicious and catered for all different tastes and preferences. The owners were committed to ensuring we had restaurant reservations to avoid disappointment as well as made us feel at home. Their location is on the beach which is easy to access as well as other scenic walks.... More

Oystercatchers Haven is a perfect getaway for some days at the beach in South Africa. The guest house offers a perfect view, is very lovingly designed and people are really friendly. A really great place

Many times SA travellers found this little gem on the western coast. We had a wonderful time staing directly on the beach. A perfect retreat to get a way from everydays worries. Been treated like friends from the beginning and left as feeling part of the family. Surrounded by stunning little restaurants in town a perfect escape.

My husband and I decided to go somewhere different and explore the quieter west coast of Paternoster. I found the Oystercatcher's Haven on various sites, including TripAdvisor. All I can say is it was a recommendation well worth the peaceful, scenic and dining rich experience. The staff were exceptionally helpful making bookings at the top restaurants in Paternoster.
