We were here for three days and had the most peaceful and relaxing stay. Sarah was so welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. The décor was perfect, the breakfasts were wonderful, beaches beautiful and views simply breath-taking. We loved it. Thank you!

This little b&b has certainly the best views you can get in Paternoster, overlooking the quiet beach with stunning sunsets. Our room was not so big, furnished with many antique things (maybe a little bit crowded), but we could see the waves from our bed! Sarah, our host is an absolute star! You can feel how much she loves what... More

My stay here was all too brief. The accommodation was just gorgeous, with amazing views, including at sunset. Sarah provided a warm welcome and it felt very homely and comfortable. The decor was tasteful with personal touches and the linen was top quality. It was nice to have more privacy than in other places in the village, but still to... More

Sarah met us at the door, she was charming and extremely helpful. Showing us around, giving us a choice of rooms as we were 2 couples travelling together. She had booked us a restaurant for dinner. The breakfast was yummy and well presented. The place was beautifully appointed. We would recommend to our friends.

Of course the first thing is this view from your room, facing the beach....it cannot be toped! But then there is the warm welcome, the individually styled rooms, the little details like fresh flowers in a vase, the dinner reservations already made for you and the great breakfast. Search no further if you want a romantic, quiet *), cozy and... More

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
