“romantic and peaceful getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

The experience we shared at farr-out was absolutely amazing. The hosts really made you feel welcome and were there to answer any questions, even going out their way to advise of places to go to make the holiday more enjoyable. The friendly environment made by them made you want to stay longer. The food was always of excellent standards.

Our experience in Rising moon (the tent), suited us perfectly because it offered lots of privacy, the only thing we found missing was shade close to the tent.

We would go back!!!!!

Hello Wilma and Carla. Thanks a mil for your kind words, it was lovely to have you here as guests! Always looking for something to do..nice...so that we can advice on all! Will try to think of something suitable for shade next to the Wigwam as trees won't grow at the West Coast, let us know if you do have an idea! Have a peaceful Christmas time and Happy New Year!

Imagine a creatively designed B&B set on a hillside looking over the fynbos to the sea away from the hustle of this little tourist town but close enough that two minutes by car and you are in the Center of town, this is Farr Out. Knowledgeable and helpful hosts who go out of their way to see that you get the most out of your visit to this delightful part of the Western Cape. Clean, good breakfasts, comfortable inside and out, places to sit and enjoy the garden and the views away from the wind. Highly recommended.

Marion and Deon are very friendly hosts. The hot tub is huge fun. Very peaceful place to spend a few days. We would certainly recommend this establishment to others. One of the few B&B's that cater for children.

We stayed 3 nights at Farr Out and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Highlights include: fantastic breakfasts, clean well furnished rooms with comfortable beds, watching colourful bird-life from the dining table, Marion's recommendations of where to eat in the village and of course the hot-tub.
Only point to mention that might be important for some; the B&B is a 2 minute drive / 10 minute walk from the village, but we actually liked this.
Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Oyster room - fantastic views over Paternoster

It is delightfully quiet - the wigwam really offers great nature sounds, I felt as if it was the annual general meeting of the small birds, crickets and frog society, and wish I could have taped it. What a comfortable wigwam as well, well appointed, and delightful breakfasts with wonderful hosts. If you are looking for some peace and quiet, friendly service and a great break - this is it.

Hello Debora,
what a pleasure to be part of a family re-union taking place at Farr Out. Glad you opted for the Wigwam and we love your expression of the "AGM", soooo true. Man more took place since then, so maybe even more like a weekly meeting. Hope to welcome you again so that you can also enjoy a beach buggy ride... All the best, Marion and Deon

The warm hospitality of Marion & Deon and the exquisit ambiance of the Farr Out B & B are competing with each other. As a result you get the sum of both. The breakfasts were a feast for the eye. Furthermore, thanks to the recommandations of Marion we attended two very authentic restaurants in Paternoster. We ate very pleasantly at The Noisy Oyster and Gaaitjie, Salt Water Reaurant. Again we will remember our overnight stay at Farr Out Guesthouse as a delight.

Hello Wimke, Roelof, Hansje and Arie,
thanks so much for your wonderful review. It was great having met you since you had such an interest in the West Coast which we always try to "sell". It's really a hidden gem but we would like to share this with our guests.
Hope to welcome you again some time in the future!
