The location was secluded and the view magnificent. our room was very comfortable and had all the amenities .Sarah and her team were fantastic! The service of booking our dinner reservation was a very clever touch. I would like to come back very soon.

Had the privilege of staying here recently. Without a doubt one of the premier guesthouses in the quaint village of Paternoster. Located ontop of a dune, overlooking the ocean with the most amazing sunsets - need I say more. If you are looking for peace and quiet, look no further. The decor of the house is a testament to the... More

We stayed at the fabulous Oystercatcher's Haven for four nights for my husband's 50th birthday. We had to amend our booking a few times and the owner Sue-Anne was absolutely lovely and helpful and patiently helped us to organise everything. From the minute we walked through the door, everything was perfect. The lodge is stunning, has a wonderful warm and... More

Oystercatcher Haven is truely a haven. We arrived a bit stressed, as you are after working long hours. By the time that we left we were so relaxed and rejuvenated and we had reconnected with each other. We had eaten great food, enjoyed the solitude of the beach, taken in the most gorgeous sunsets, slept in the same room as... More

I thought I would give the best rating, since this is an amazing place overlooking the beach, with a stunning view. Then came breakfast, which is definitively disappointing, It has to be at 9am, and I was expecting something really special, but it s really average.

Not so much staying in a hotel as being invited into someones house! Beautiful spot overlooking the bay, with brilliant walks in every direction. Absolutely well worth the drive North from Cape Town into a competely different world. Breakfasts were brilliant and the whole experience just wonderful and relaxing. Before we arrived the owner booked us into a local resteraunt... More

What an awesome place to stay. Beautiful beach views, nice and central to everything in Paternoster. Breakfasts served are exceptional and fantastic service. The rooms are very nice and spacious with doors opening onto the beach.... Even our shower had beach views ... Thank you to Sarah and the entire team for making us feel very special.

Despite arriving in a thick sea fog we could see that we had come to a very special place. We were shown around the property and told that two different restaurants had been booked for us for that night and the following day. The setting when the fog cleared the next day was everything that I had hoped for. We... More

The Oystercatcher's Haven has a perfect location, right on the beach in Back Bay. All the rooms are beautifully furnished and have stunning views, (even from the shower!), and all have lovely terraces from which to enjoy breakfast if the weather permits. Breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented. Sarah provides a wonderfully warm welcome and takes care of all your... More
