For self catering travellers this is a sweet little place. We found everything we needed in the suite to enjoy our stay. The collection of suites are right near the very end of the beach perched just above a more private cove. The walk to the beach is beautiful.

Amazing location and stunning accommodation. Lots of attention to detail, such as flowers on the beds, deck chairs outside and well-equipped kitchen. This must be the best location to be found in Paternoster.

We stayed at La Baleine 3 nights and the unit was perfect for our stay. Right on the beach. We loved every moment whilst we stayed there. Cornelia was really amazing and so so helpful. We hope to be back soon to this lovely place.

La Baleine is a 10 beach house/ studio rooms collection right above the beach on the southern end of Paternoster (Latin for "our father"), a fishing village on South Africa's west coast. The whole village is white buildings with blue roofs to match a Greek theme. At La Baeine, Cornelia is the amenable hostess and is really helpful and nice....

What a wonderful relaxing holiday. La Baleine was spotless and perfectly positioned with incredible views over the bay of Paternoster. Cornelia greeted us and went out of her way to make our stay enjoyable. Can't wait to go back!

We stayed for 2 nights at La Baliene cottages and what a treat! Beautiful, comfortable, well equipped cottages with the most amazing views across the Bay. The perfect spot to stay whilst in Paternoster. The beach is right outside the door, perfect for an early morning or evening stroll. Can't wait to go back!

Absolutely loved La Baleine, more specifically Drommedaris. We had such a relaxing few days there, did not want to leave. Accommodation top notch, staff amazing, location perfect. Will return to the same place again.

Just a magnificent spot. Gorgeous views, clean, well equipped and comfortable rooms. Location was spot on with outstanding restaurants within walking distance. We ate at various spots and every one of them was fantastic. If I have one bad thing to say it is that our stay was not long enough. Can't wait to return. Thanks so much.
