We stayed at Lavender house in Paternoster. We were met on our arrival by Wiseman, a truly remarkable humanbeing and a huge asset to this business i would imagine. Wiseman was friendly, kind, knowledgeable and always willing to help in whatever way. The unit, Levender, was amazing.....with all the necessities. The website and pictures online dont do this unit justice....really!...

When we arrived we were met by Wiseman, the caretaker, who was professional and efficient from booking in to checking out. We stayed in Romantica. It was a clean and well appointed self-catering cottage. It had most of the mod-cons one needs such as a microwave, DSTV, and even a dishwasher. But no aircon and strangely no fan. It was...

Our house was very spacious and comfortable. Right behind the house was the parking lot. WLAN was not available. Once we entered the house, something "smelly" was in the air. Something between fish and dog. Our complaint about that was handled in a good way. The manager offered a few options to our complete satisfaction.

An amazing weekend in an amazing place. The cottage was sublime, and clean and cosy. We had a wonderful time in the African Daisy cottage. We had to buy our own firewood, but it was still a great and snug place to stay.

We arrived to a friendly welcome from Wiseman. We stayed in African Daisy cottage which was one road back from the beach. The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Location was good and easy walk into town or down to the beach. Would go back there sometime!

We were welcomed by Wiseman with a super friendly smile and an efficient run-through of the cottage. We had a comfortable cosy stay. The cottage was extremely clean with crispy fresh linen and bathroom accessories. Minutes walk away from the beach, a path opposite the cottage takes you straight there! Minutes walk from delicious restaurants and shops. It was a...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Cottage Collection is a small, hand picked portfolio of self catering holiday accommodation in the quaint fishing village of Paternoster on South Africa’s West Coast. We put together the very best holiday cottages available in Paternoster. All our cottages are graded 4 star by the Tourism Grading Council of South Africa. Our portfolio is suited to all parties; so whether you are a couple, a family spending a special holiday together or a group of friends or colleagues looking for that special hide-away, we will certainly meet your stay requirements with our numerous options available. Paternoster possesses a special kind of magic, one which every visitor feels but few can define. Its down-to-earth coastal lifestyle and centuries-old traditions are the soul of this working fisherman’s village. Coming to Paternoster reminds you of the truly important things in life. It’s like coming home to yourself, where you find that special place to exhale, heal and rejuvenate. We have been inspired by this simple magic. Each cottage in our collection offers modern, cleanly-defined accommodation with authentic West Coast architectural design and its own distinctive character, contributing to the kind of relaxation that leaves our guests knowing they made the right choice. We want you to experience an unforgettable coastal experience for maximum pleasure and minimum fuss in a tranquil atmosphere. All cottages have beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens and quality linen and towels. Each cottage has its own patio and braai facility, DSTV (Hotel DSTV package, including sports channel, kykNET, MNET, Movie Channel, BBC, Disney and National Geographic Channel). Embrace the authentic West Coast lifestyle and make the most of it. ... more   less
