We were in two rooms and every effort to accommodate us was made. We decided to 'picnic' in as we had been out for lunch. We asked whether it was possible and extra chairs and a tablecloth was presented and we enjoyed our sundowners and picnic on the private balcony. Breakfast was great! The staff were great!.

Beautiful B&B full of character. Loved that they pre-booked awesome restaurants for us. Our room was secluded and it felt as if we were the only ones there. They made us breakfast on the patio every morning. All we did was rest and eat! It was awesome!

The Oystercatcher's Haven is a pleasant small pension on the beach. Rooms and people are charming, breakfast is yummy yummy with an incredible omelette and homemade granola. It's a nice and peaceful place to stay, delightful and old-fashioned in a pleasant way.

Peaceful with only the sound of the sea which you can see from the bed (Room 3). Right by the rock at the end of town so easy to walk straight onto the beach / rocks. Tiny pool all you need if you don't fancy the sea. Friendly welcome and breakfast better than the norm. Would go back.

The perfect position on the beach. President Mandela stayed there. Our room had a nice balcony from which to enjoy the breathtaking view. Service was good. A little amateurish but friendly. The lodge needs a revamp and new decor. Too much clutter. Our room closes with a padlock! Not acceptable when you claim 4stars. Furniture has seen better days. No...

Breathtaking sea view right on the beach. Ideal position. President Mandela stayed at this lodge. We were in the same room. It has a nice balcony from where one can really unwind. Sadly the decor was cluttered. Too much stuff in the rooms and the basics don't work. Needed a padlock to close. Lighting insufficient. Bed sagging. No bathroom door....

I recently spent 2 nights at the Oystercatcher's Haven in the picturesque little fishing village of Paternoster. We immediately felt welcome and relaxed when we were greeted by Sarah, Ayanda and Onezwa. They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and relaxing. The house is beautifully decorated with the beach just a few steps away down a...

Wow......what a fabulous place to stay. We spent a couple of days chilling out in beautiful Paternoster staying at the Oystercatcher's Haven. We cannot recommend it enough, the "honeymoon suite" is gorgeous. Thank you

An excellent place in all respects. We experienced to be greeted with genuine friendliness and charm. A place with soul and history in the walls. Situated in the landscape as if it was taken from a painting. A delight to move in nature, and in the village, with its excellent dining options.
