We have stayed here a couple of times now & it is ideal for romantic, family or friends types of visits.....there is ample room & direct access to the beach from your choice of two stoeps (balconies). The staff are very helpful & covered everything that we & our guests required without hesitation. The Penthouse is more than comfortable with wonderful views up & down both beaches. There's also plenty of opening french doors & windows to create a wonderful breeze in most any direction. Parking space is good. Only slight thing we would say is be careful of the steps in/out of the Penthouse they are steep & not very wide & locking the door needs caution particularly when wet.

My family and I with a group of friends decided to spend the long weekend in September 2013 in Paternoster. We hired 2 houses next to each other. The accommodation was adequate, with a few things short in each house. This is not a reflection on the houses we stayed in.
On the second afternoon around 4pm we were harrassed by 4 boys aged between 7 and 11, the language that came out of their mouths and the insinuations that were made I have never experienced before. That evening around 0300 our house was broken into and about R 200 000 worth of goods were stolen. Luckily we didnt wake up or who knows what else may have happened. They were clearly 'casing' the joint earlier the afternoon. This is not the only incident I know of in Paternoster, friends of ours were held at gun point while on honeymoon there. if you are thinking about going to Paternoster for a holiday please think again!!

Dear Garth

While we understand your frustration at being burglarized we have tried to ensure your safety by having burglar bars and additional bolts on the doors so that entry should not be gained. Due to this incident we are also now having security gates installed on all of our doors.

If we are not informed of harassment at the time it takes place there is very little we can do about it. We (the Managers) can be reached 24 hours a day. Unfortunately Paternoster is not excluded from the ravages of crime.

You mentioned that there were a few items short in each unit. Had we been informed of this at the time, it would have been rectified immediately.

We feel that it is unfair that our establishment has been rated badly due to something beyond our control. Tripadvisor does have a forum where any crime in the area can be discussed.

Best Regards
Management

We stayed last August and being off season, we got winter rates. We just showed up at the property, they had availability and got an even better "walk-in" rate. We opted for the Penthouse and what a treat. It had gorgeous views over the beach from the dining/living room area and the bedroom. It had a fireplace and a brai area on the deck. The place was beautifully furnished; it came with maid service, and DSTV. We were only intending to stay for two nights but extended oe more night. The office staff were friendly and helpful; location was great close to a special local restaurant a walk down the beach.

This year, the Penthouse was booked so we went with Pater Noster Accommodations. We rented a full house--Djis Tjil. Our agent was Erma. It's right on the beach--similar to the Penthouse with great views from living area and bedrooms. Beautifully furnished! I would also recommend this facility as well.

Room Tip: They have several cottages and rooms, some with partial views or no views at all. I would opt for t...

Great villas situated a stone's throw from the beach. Well equipped with all necessary items. Wi-fi available at reception. Paternoster very quiet in winter season and some restaurants were closed. We found our villa very comfortable and a good base from which to explore the magical West Coast

The Baywatch Villa Collection offers S/C and B&B. We have only stayed in B&B on a few occasions and were always fully satisfied: All the rooms are very clean and functional. Some have terrace and the one on the first floor has as well a marvellous sea view. Can only recommend this B&B with direct access to the beach.

We only stayed one night but found the 1 bed self catering cottage huge with everything required for our stay. The bed was extremely comfortable with quality linen. The shower leaked when running the bath and the coffee table could have been cleaner. Overall the place was great and the staff friendly and very helpful.

Thank you for staying with us at Baywatch Cottage. Guests that stayed in the Cottage over the weekend brought the leaking shower to our attention and it will be repaired today. I have been over to look at the coffee table, and from the looks of it it needs a new coat of paint., which will also be sorted out today.

Thank you for bringing these things to our attention. It is always nice to hear feedback from guests that have stayed in our houses.

Have a wonderful day

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Baywatch Villa Collection was established in 2001 by Tony and Shirley Ansley. They made Paternoster their home after falling in love with the little fishing village, its beauty and its people. Tony, being a business man but already on his way to retirement, decided they would stay on and seized the opportunity to secure their retirement yet still have the luxury of a business - keeping his mind active. Shirley, always the loving and supporting wife, was one hundred percent behind him. Together they started with one self catering unit. Soon they realized that this would not be enough as their love for people shone through to their guests and they had more requests for accommodation than they could handle. They expanded to four, luxury self catering units. The beautiful home that they had created as a haven became too big for them and they decided to let the upper level of their beachfront home out. This is the star of the Baywatch Villa Collection as you do not come across such love and effort put into a holiday home for someone else very often. In 2008 another addition was made, we can boast with the magnificent four star Guest House, which will leave you feeling like royalty once you visit. The Baywatch Villa Collection is owner managed and you can be assured of passion for hospitality as well as housekeeping. We offer luxury accommodation to suit your individual holiday requirements. For the family we have the three star graded Lodge, Villa, Cottage and Inn which are all situated a mere 70m from the beach. All of our self catering units promise to give you and your family the perfect base from where you can have a truly authentic experience of the beautiful village of Paternoster. For those seeking pure indulgence we offer the four star Guest House as well as the Penthouse. All of our self catering units are equipped with a TV, DVD/CD player. Available channels are SABC 1, 2, 3 and ETV as well as M-Net, MM1, SS1 and SS2. An honesty bar is there for your enjoyment and daily services may be arranged at a nominal fee. Tea, coffee, milk, sugar and rusks are there to welcome you upon your arrival. These four units are child and pet friendly. The Penthouse has full DSTV and is serviced daily. We regret that no children under 16 may be accommodated in this unit. All the rooms in our Guest House are equipped with tea and coffee making facilities as well as a bar fridge with an honesty bar. Each room also has an LCD TV and DVD/CD player. Available channels include SABC 1, 2, 3 and ETV as well as M-Net, MM1, SS1 and SS2. Daily services are done between 10am and 12pm for your convenience. Guest House visitors are in for a treat with a delicious daily breakfast. Penthouse (Four Star) Sleeps 6 Idyllic views of the magnificent ocean with direct access to the beach from your exclusive sundeck... The Penthouse offers visitors the most incredible setting for experiencing Paternoster’s breathtaking sunsets while sipping your favourite drink on the balcony. You could take a leisurely stroll along the beach or relax at one of the many excellent restaurants within walking distance. Wander along the beach and it will lead you to the Voorstrand restaurant where you can dine while taking in the spectacular view. If dining in is what you prefer you can do so in luxury with the fully equipped kitchen and braai area. If the pristine white linen isn’t enough of an invitation into the main bedroom, the sliding door opening onto the sundeck will win you over. The second bedroom is equally inviting and has all the luxuries you may need to enjoy your holiday to its fullest. The view from this unit is absolutely breathtaking and has to be experienced to be believed. Baywatch Villa’s Penthouse is the ultimate in Paternoster tranquillity, you will return from your visit counting down the days until you can revisit this little piece of heaven. The Cottage (Three Star) Sleeps 2 and 2 on sleeper couch This little fishing cottage is the perfect private hideout for those seeking no distractions.

It will warm your heart and soul with its inside fireplace where you can relax and unwind on chilly evenings. Enjoy the sun light while sheltered from the wind in your private braai area right off the fully equipped kitchen. A king sized bed is there to enfold you as you drift off to a peaceful night’s sleep in one of Paternoster’s little havens. This unit has a full bathroom. The Villa (Three Star) Sleeps 4 Holidaying in the Villa gives you the sense of being away in some little island treasure. Looking at the ocean and surrounding homes just gives you such a sense of holiday that there can be no doubt that this is the perfect setting for relaxation.

You can enjoy the king sized bedroom with full bathroom or the twin room with shower. The Villa is truly magnificent as it gives you a sense of holiday from the moment you open the door.
