Farr Out Guesthouse
Ranked #4 of 19 Paternoster B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Marion and Deon were very helpful hosts and the accommodation was clean and comfortable. Although just outside Paternoster, this was, in fact, a bonus because the wonderful quirky garden , complete with teepees, was a haven for bird life and we spent many and hour watching a wonderful variety of species feeding off the ingenious feeders made by Deon and topped up constantly by Marion.A very enjoyable stay.

A little out of town but quiet and friendly with lovely views. Marion is a very good host. Would stay there again which is always a good measure.

A truly beautiful venue with a warm friendly reception. The wigwam was something so different, a lovely experience. Wonderful, relaxing, nourishing experience. Thank you so much to hosts Marion and Deon.

Marion & Deon were very obliging. The room was clean and equipped with everything necessary for a short stay. The hot tub was great. Pity there was no DSTV and the other channels and TV reception was poor.

Hi Lisa.TV reception is solved as the South Easter was blowing away our reception. As for DSTV: we decided against it as we truly believe in our beautiful nature surroundings and outdoor activities to enjoy as well as to get away from the hectic city live...Hope you'll be ok with it at your maybe next visit...

We both really loved our stay at Farr Out!, firstly the hosts Marion and Deon were very accomodating, fun and very informative. The room was great, bed was massive and comfortable. And let's not forget the awesome outdoor hot tub, not a bad way to spend an evening star gazing. Farr Out Guest house is located just outside the little village, so it's very quiet and relaxing making it a great home base for the avid explorer. We went during peak season, and were really happy with our choice as the volume of human traffic in the village was staggering.

We enjoyed the breakfasts with our hosts and other guests, us being social creatures, really enjoyed our converations with Marion and Deon. They were both very knowledgeable about the area and outlying areas and alway happy to share their great experiences with us.

Thanks Deon, for the dune buggy trip, not only did we learn about the interesting history of Paternoster itself and the outlying areas, Ursula manged to get an interesting sun glasses tan in the process :)

Thank you both for a great experience

very good base from which to explore the Paternoster area which we hadn't been to for many years. Peaceful with prolific bird life. Good advise on hidden gems in the area from the host Marion who is a delightful lady. Great place to recharge. Several interesting restaurants which should be pre booked in season.

Hello Rael. Thanks for your kind words. You should try next time the little coffee shop "Mondvol" in Trekooskraal, a bit difficult to get there but you'll be rewarded not only with lovely food (ie quiche or fantastic cheesecake) but also an awesome view...

We spent a wonderful long weekend at Farr Out. Our room was beautiful and functional, with a lovely view of the town and sea beyond and our own private patio on which to soak up some sun and watch the abundance of bird life. Marion and Dion are such friendly and welcoming hosts; they really make you feel at home. And Dion's breakfasts are the perfect way to start the day. We will definitely be returning!

HI Bronwen and David. Even if one is a non birder...eventually you'll get beyond the knowledge that this thing with the wings on it is a bird...It is actually lots of fun to watch and view the little fellows so close. Hope to see you again!
