“The home of my soul”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

I spent time in Paternoster alone writing content for my book so it was important that I felt safe,was close to all amenities and that the space I was in was conjusive to creativity and beauty -I couldn't have booked a better place to stay. The rooms are full of interesting trinkets, gorgeous linen and personal touches. I loved the time I spent there. It is a real treat for anyone who values great service and beauty all in one.

This is a very charming guest house in a very charming seaside town.
The rooms are clean and comfortable and nicely decorated.
The guest house is right across the road from the beach.
There is a small pool in a nice courtyard with shaded sun lounges.
The breakfast is very good with eggs made to order.
We originally booked in to the guest house for one night but ended
up staying two nights as we enjoyed it very much.

Hoekie is a very cute B&B right by the beach in Paternorster, a sleepy fishing town. The manager is friendly and super helpful and the breakfast is fantastic with a real social feel. The rooms are clean and quite quirky - my wife loved the decorations and set up. We did miss having a shower a little, but it wouldn't stop us from visiting again.
I'd recommend Hoekie to anyone visiting Paternorster.

Superb location - fantastic views along the beach.
Nice rooms, a bit different. Missed not having a shower but mamagedok for the 4 nights.
Friendly service and helpful.
Will stay here again if in Paternoster.

Room Tip: Upstairs rooms have great views and two of them have a private patio area but no showers.

Paternoster is exactly what all the guides say: Endless beach, very little to do, stunning sunsets and amazing food. It is an ideal destination to relax and just do nothing.

Hoekie is what made my stay the peaceful retreat I had hoped for. Located right next to the beach and accross from the Voorstrand restaurant, meant that I could come and go as it suited me, while my techno-obsessed boyfriend and his friend, took the car off to explore the surrounding areas.

I found the service friendly and relaxed; asked for nothing as everything was taken care of, and as it is a small establishment, was undisturbed by any of the other guests as they came and went.

The decor is luxurious, lots of homely touches and comforting detail, the hightlights for me were a huge bookshelf with a variety of books; the poolside hammock-chairs; the clawfoot bath and possibly the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.

My only regret is that we didn't participate in the dinner that was thrown the first night we arrived, as the food looked and smelt wonderful, and it would have been a lovely opportunity to engage with other people. However, I hope to return at some point and rectify that.

Excellently located B&B right on the beach in an unspoilt seaside town (albeit developing quite quickly). Well appointed rooms wiht nice touches and excellent breakfast. Hospitable host who was proactive in recommending and booking great places to eat which was really useful as the best places get booked up.
Fabulous for walks on the beach, watching the fishermen bring in the catch before breakfast.

This clean, tidy, furnished, pleasant guest house, literally on the beach road provided me with a relaxing, very comfortable, and very pleasant 8 days.
The owner was friendly, spoke good English, provided a very sumptuous breakfast each day.
There was more than adequate tourist information and local information in the coomunal room provided. There was a most interest small library of books too.
The owner always gave good advice and had direct access, on a personal basis to the eating places in the village.
You will need a car to venture further and all needs are provided in the nearest town 16 kms inland at Vrendendal, but all services are available in this town.
If you are a walker, there is ample excellent walking territory to the left and right of this guest house.
For the photographer, flora, fauna, sealife, birdlife, animal life and seascapes abound in their variety. Some remarkable sunsets are available outside the guest house.
You will relax here in this excellent guest house, you will be well looked after, and you will enjoy it.
