Great place to stay in this cute cottage for two right on the beach. Where else can you lie in bed and see the beach and sea, watch the fisherman at work with peace and only the sea for noise. The housekeeper Nora was very helpful and came when ever we needed something. 14klms of beach to walk on firm... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Zula Beach Cottage. Glad you enjoyed the view and empty beach. Hopefully you will visit again soon to experience Paternoster with little or no wind. We recommend August and September during the flower season. Toni Shina Owner More

What are the key features of a sensational seaside spot? View of the sea, of course, within touching distance, with perhaps nothing separating one from the white sands other than a set of double glass doors and patio with an outdoor seating area. The architecture should be Cycladean, with clean lines, white walls, blue-grey windows and doors. Seaside interiors are... More

It is our second trip to Zulu Beach cottage - we were there for a week. The owners were in the main house and welcomed us - the cottage is just perfect - the views are to die for - right on the beach - the cottage is well equipped, neat and clean - we wished for nothing. The bathroom... More

We stayed at the Zula cottage for 2 nights in February as a resting spot during our tour of the west coast of South Africa and Namibia. The location of the cottage is superb, directly next to a long sandy beach. The cottage is very nicely furnished, but disappoints in other ways. Firstly, the ONLY windows in the main room... More

Thank you so much for your comprehensive review and appreciate your constructive feedback. We have supplied a fan and notify our clients that we recommend they sleep with the glass doors open as the shutters allow for airflow. The kitchenette and bathroom windows can both be left open while not compromising the security. Your suggestion that we supply a cupboard... More

In December 2012 upon visiting the West coast town of Paternoster in the Western Cape we came across a house on the beach. The setting was absolutely stunning. We enquired and booked the house for a weekend in March 2013. Upon booking we were informed that a private flat-let adjacent to the house was rented out to someone else. Under... More

Paternoster is a pretty town. A traditional fisherman's village, with a beautiful building code and miles of sandy beaches don't exactly make it easy to stand out. Zula, however, does just that. Situated in the last stand before the beach, this excellently equipped house offers much, much more than just it's views (which for the record are straight up spectacular).... More

The family had the most relaxing and glorious time. The beach house is so beautifully situated and allowed the kids to run free on the long beach. It is also extremely comfortable and everything catered for your every need. Can't wait to take the friends up for another visit soon.

I couldnt have asked for more. Zula Beach Cottage is situated on the beach with an uninterrupted sea view. If you are looking for a place to get away from the hubbub of city life this is your destination. The cottage itself is simply but beautifully decorated and has everything you need including DSTV.
