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.

What a perfect spot this was for a few days getaway. Everything one would want in a self catering unit. Sitting on the balcony every morning watching the whales play while having coffee. What more do you want? Cornelia was the perfect host and managed to recommend the best restaurants. Make sure you stop by Voorstrand.

This delightful self catering villa meets all needs. Beautifully positioned overlooking the entire Paternoster Bay. Direct access onto the beach and views from different areas in the villa all look straight out over this pristine piece of coastline. 2 days was too short. Will definitely be staying here again.

We loved the location of La Baleine. Couldn't be more perfect, right at the seafront. Seeing the sun come up from our terrace was beautiful. True holiday feel. Our kids lived playing in front of our house in between the rocks and sand. Beautifully and luxurious decorated yet still with a cosy feel to it. Would highly recommend it.

My partner and I stayed in one of their one bed units on the other side of the village, what a great experience - our unit was sheltered from wind, nicely located and the unit had everything we needed. The on site manager was also very accommodating. All in all a well run set up and well presented unit.

Cottage was very spacious and well appointed. Bed was comfortable and linen of a good standard. Manager was most helpful and full of lots of local tips. Views weren't great but within easy walk of the beach so no matter.

We had just had our fourth stay here at Katzen cottage this year! Feels like home to us. Such a relaxed environment and completely safe. Great location in the village short walk to restaurants and little shops. Fantastic sea views. The staff are friendly and helpful. The cottage is well equipped and great for long lazy braais in the afternoons....

This spacious and comfortable hous offers a great view. Overlooking the beach of Paternoster from the living or the dining room, from the terrace, the braai area or the garden. Next time we'll spend more time in this relaxing atmosphere. The restaurant Vorstrand is in walking distance just along the beach.
