About Paternoster Dunes

Paternoster is considered by many to be the most magical destination on the West Coast of Southern Africa. Where else in the region would you find such an irresistible combination of pristine beach, white-washed village charm and little to disturb the gentle, soothing atmosphere a mere hour away from Cape Town. Famously friendly, Paternoster has much of the rustic, idyllic character one would expect from a tiny Mediterranean island. In fact, it's one of the last traditional fishing villages on the West Coast.

Characterized by interior sensibility and casual elegance, Paternoster Dunes Boutique Guest House is ideal for guests seeking off-the-beaten-track comfort and style. In-house amenities include a carefully appointed intimacy lounge and cocktail bar, a small but eclectic library, and solar heated pools. While few establishments can boast vast, uninterrupted sea views, our guest house is nestled on the dunes with the Atlantic Ocean quite literally on the doorstep.

Individually decorated, all six rooms include percale cotton linen, air-conditioning, electric blankets, a tea and coffee station, international cable television, complimentary wireless Internet, complimentary Rooibos bath and body products from the region, a minibar fridge, bathrobes, a hairdryer, and a nightly turndown service.

Hosts Deon and Gavin will delight you with local knowledge of the town, its history, the best dining experiences, and things to see and do. For a romantic refuge or place to unwind, our guest house guarantees a stylish and affordable boutique experience.

Spa: Our very own spa aims to relax and rejuvenate.

This adorable self catering unit is on a quiet cul de sac. The sea is literally right on your doorstep, with the waves crashing on the big boulders.Everything you need is there, just take own food and drinks. The perfect romantic getaway!

This is probably my definition of the perfect hotel. Attentive, personal service, exquisite surroundings, wonderful location and view. I very much hope to return. But be warned - in season I bet there’s a lot of competition for Paternoster's few good restaurants – book early!
