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. Friendly, helpful and attentive with really good breakfasts. Its not trendy but do not in any way be put off by the eclectic, even quirky decor and furnishings. We started our stay in the newly converted Room 4 on the ground floor and were then moved to the suite on the upper floor for our last 2 nights. Both different, both really nice. Restaurant bookings had been made by Anja and we juggled these a bit as we got used to what was on offer in Paternoster - Voorstrand once, Noisy Oyster and Gaaitjie Salt Water twice each. Lots of great fish and shellfish - really fresh and in very interesting surroundings with lots of friendly fellow guests and a bit of a party atmosphere. We liked Wayne's artwork and were really envious of the fantastic guest house that he and Sandy have created over the past 13 years. Took lots of interesting trips out ( Wayne full of useful advise) and saw lots of wildflowers and nature along this beautiful stretch of the coast. We stayed exactly 10 years to the day that Madiba and his wife had a 4 night break at the Oystercatcher Haven - we understood why he was apparently so reluctant to leave!! Take a detour from Capetown, its not that far and really worth it!!
