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.

We were recommend to stay here by friends, and we were truly delighted with Oystercatchers Haven. Our room was so delightful with wonderful views even from the shower!! It certainly is a very relaxed comfortable guest house. Everyone so helpful and a table was booked for us at the local Noisy Oyster Restaurant which was a real treat. Breakfast was... More

I am a Travel Agent and had booked clients on numeroues occasions but this was my first visit and it lived up to all the excellent reports I had received over the years. The position on the beach is heaven, the rooms and facilities excellent and we were made to feel very welcome. Its biggest asset, however is its position.

We had booked our room number 4 after looking at other reviews on Trip advisor and were very pleased with arrangement .Our private little terrace had spectacular views onto the Atlantic.

Paternoster was a small fishing village, but it is now a rather unappealing sprawl of holiday homes, albeit situated on 2 lovely sandy bays, and to get there from Cape Town you have cross 150km of hot flat scrubland. We were disappointed in Paternoster – perhaps the flower season is a better time to go? The Columbine nature Reserve round... More

We stayed for two nights at the Oystercatcher's Haven in Paternoster, and decided that this was the nicest room we had had in South Africa - and we had had some lovely ones. Bright, spacious and comfortable with wonderful sea views and, in our case, a private terrace. The host, Wayne, was extremely helpful with dinner recommendations and general info... More

After a very busy December myself and my husband were in desperate need of a holiday. Somewhere to restore the body and mind. Views of the ocean from our bed, hearty breakfasts, evening turn downs and our attentive host Wayne who helped us with restaurant bookings are but a few of the reasons why we would return to this gem!...

When looking for a getaway you can not do better than this little haven. It really is stunning- a little piece of heaven. A few metres from the beach, literally! We had breakfast on our little stoep "patio" overlooking the beach. The service was superb and personal. Wayne and sandy had time for a little chat. They were also great... More

We stayed at Oystercatcher Haven for 5 nights on our latest trip to South Africa. Anja, Wayne, Sandy and Claudia have fine tuned this operation to provide a very relaxing location. Fabulous location with amazing views onto the beach - so close to the sea that initially it was almost too noisy until we acclimatised - but we certainly did.... More

Paternoster is very unique and you should visit if you are in the area. The place with the most B&B's in a very small area, but still very peaceful. The view from the B&B is beautiful. You look out over the ocean/beach from your room and about everywhere in the hotel. Don't expect a pool to swim in. Very small... More
