Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The well appointed beautiful house, which was just as advertised, was very comfortable in all respects. Stunning Sunsets and views from the patio. The property is conveniently situated, close to a variety of restaurants and the beach. We would highly recommend this accommodation.

Very pleasant stay. Only negative is the fact that there is no air conditioning in the room.

Comfortable and Romantic
The apartment was very comfortable in every way! Luxurious furniture, high quality appliances and lovely artwork can be enjoyed throughout. The apartment is spacious, clean and has a beautiful ocean view to wake up to every morning; my wife didn’t want to leave. A lovely braai facility in a private garden can be enjoyed while hearing the ocean in the background. There are close amenities within short walking distances which makes for an easy stay. Over all, I would recommend a stay at D.V. Engelhijs to any holiday seeker!

A wonderful relaxing weekend away in comfort.
he accommodation was beautiful (with great artworks!) and comfortable, and exactly what was promised. It had everything we could have wished for and the location was perfect. Right opposite Voorstrandt restaurant and literally a few steps and you're on the beach. Jax met us on arrival and made us feel really welcome. We will definitely be back.

Die ligging was perfek, die akkommodasie stylvol, netjies en skoon.
Ek en my lewensmaat het ons naweek by hierdie akkommodasie verskriklik geniet. Die eenheid se meubels en atmosfeer is van die hoogste gehalte en het alles in om jou naweek onvergeetlik te maak. Stoep wat uitkyk op die see, televisie, gemaklike bed en banke, pragtige skilderye en gemaklike bed en beddegoed. Ons sal beslis weer soontoe gaan vir 'n lekker wegbreek.

Very tasteful interior with vintage furniture pieces and lovely paintings. It was close to the beach - literally across the road. Also opposite a very good seafood spot (Voorstrandt Restaurant).

Die Lage zum Strand, die Terrasse und die räumliche Ausstattung haben uns gefallen. 2 Schlafzimmer mit je Bad für 2 Personen ggf. mit Kind, ideal. Haus ist neu, ruhige Lage.

Uiterste sielsrus en vrede om elke oggend wakker te word en die see te hoor en sien.
Padaanwysings baie goed en die ontvangs baie gasvry. Kamer baie netjies en alle benodighede beskikbaar. Heerlik om met die see aan die slaap te raak en weer wakker te word. Baie sentraal geleë en alles binne loopafstand. Definitief 'n plek wat ek sal aanbeveel en weer gaan besoek om totale sielsrus en vrede te ervaar. Hulle restaurant, Die Seekat, is ongetwyfeld die moeite werd vir 'n heerlike ete.

Pragtig ingerigte en goed geleë verblyf.
Pragtige, gerieflike ingerigte woning wat perfek by die wonderlike omgewing pas. Paternoster self is soos hemel op aarde en hierdie woning het ons ervaring vervolmaak.

Paternoster in die geheel is n pragtige plek. Rustigheid maar tog baie om te geniet. Vriendelike mense. Die hotel se mense baie gaaf en gasvry. Voel of jy tuis is. Die hotel kamers baie netjies en skoon. As jy wil wegkom van die stadsgevoel kan jy enige tyd Paternoster besoek. Jy sal nie teleurgesteld wees nie. Alles is binne loopafstand. Die dorpie pragtig en skoon.

Recommend Noisy Oyster and Vorstrand Restaurants. Waffles at the Wharf - coffee and fresh bread/croissants at Junk & Disorderly. The beach walks, and Columbine Nature Reserve and Tittiesbaai.

I love the fact that it is still a small fisher's village and absolutely beautiful there. I will definitely go back to Paternoster again. Loved every minute of it.
