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

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
