We loved the location of La Baleine. Couldn't be more perfect, right at the seafront. Seeing the sun come up from our terrace was beautiful. True holiday feel. Our kids lived playing in front of our house in between the rocks and sand. Beautifully and luxurious decorated yet still with a cosy feel to it. Would highly recommend it.

My partner and I stayed in one of their one bed units on the other side of the village, what a great experience - our unit was sheltered from wind, nicely located and the unit had everything we needed. The on site manager was also very accommodating. All in all a well run set up and well presented unit.

Accommodation was very comfortable, well maintained and with obvious attention to detail by a very welcoming manager Cornelia. We enjoyed spectacular views over Paternoster beach. Look forward to a return visit.

Cottage was very spacious and well appointed. Bed was comfortable and linen of a good standard. Manager was most helpful and full of lots of local tips. Views weren't great but within easy walk of the beach so no matter.

We had just had our fourth stay here at Katzen cottage this year! Feels like home to us. Such a relaxed environment and completely safe. Great location in the village short walk to restaurants and little shops. Fantastic sea views. The staff are friendly and helpful. The cottage is well equipped and great for long lazy braais in the afternoons....

This spacious and comfortable hous offers a great view. Overlooking the beach of Paternoster from the living or the dining room, from the terrace, the braai area or the garden. Next time we'll spend more time in this relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant Vorstrand is in walking distance just along the beach.

Lovely spot to explore Paternoster. The Manager was very helpful and warming. The apartment had everything we needed and was spotless. However we did get the raw end of the deal regarding apartments. We had nowhere to sit outside. Make sure you book a sea facing cottage or insist that you get an apartment with a table outside to enjoy...

This is our second visit to La Baleine - we love its amazing position overlooking the rocks and sea and just a short walk onto the Paternoster beach. It is peaceful and quiet. Wonderful verandah to view both the rising and setting sun! The house itself is well equipped.. comfortable beds and great kitchen. We will be back!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay in this luxury self-catering beach house. Lazy mornings enjoying the views from the patio (while having breakfast), lazy afternoons enjoying the sea view from the bedroom and long walks on the beach was most definitely good for the soul.
