As with anywhere else, the key ingredients to a luxury break in Paternoster are the accommodation and location. We're situated in a dreamy spot with minimal vehicle or foot traffic and vast, unbroken sea views. Given our idyllic position, our guests have private access to a beautiful patch of indigenous Strandveld, which leads directly onto Bek Bay Beach.


The guesthouse interior is characterised by functional sensibility and mellow elegance. Guest amenities include an intimacy lounge, honesty cocktail bar, a small leisure library, a beauty treatment room and complimentary afternoon tea. If you prefer time in the sun without a warm sea breeze on your skin, we also have a solar-heated, all-weather pool with comfortably cushioned deck loungers.


Expect some of the most spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean while enjoying freshly prepared breakfast on the upstairs indoor-outdoor terrace area.

We serve a buffet selection of homemade muesli, creamy yoghurt and honey, fresh-baked bread or croissants with preserves, and cheese and ham. This is followed by a hot daily special, which often includes South African specialities such as our snoek (fish found off the West Coast) omelette, or you can opt for a hearty English breakfast.

Breakfast is served between 08:30 and 09:45, which allows for an early morning stroll on the beach or a late lie in. Guests are welcome to request an earlier breakfast, by prior arrangement, from 08:00 onwards.

Afternoon tea

After a day of sightseeing, lazing at the beach, or languishing at our guesthouse plunge pool, you can help yourself to complimentary coffee, tea and confectionaries. Afternoon tea is served from 16:00 upstairs in the guesthouse lounge.

Lunch and dinner

Paternoster Dunes Guesthouse is within easy strolling distance of the central village harbour and an array of restaurants and eateries. Although we generally do not cater for lunch and dinner, we can prepare light meals by prior arrangement.
