Absolutely gorgeous guesthouse with charming welcome from staff. We had the most amazing suite with a balcony directly overlooking the beach, magical uninterrupted views over the ocean and at sunset. Breakfast was lovely and the location was perfect - walking distance to town but not on the main drag. Would recommend without hesitation.

Beautiful room with terrace directly on beach - fabulous afternoon sun and sunset. Rather silly contract suggesting we should pay the venues legal fees in the event of litigation (which we did not sign)!

At long last I got to visit Paternoster and to stay at the Oystercatcher's Haven. The attention to detail and friendliness of the staff was faultless. We had a wonderful two days and felt thoroughly spoilt. Thank you

From the moment we arrived Sarah and her assistant were both pleasant and helpful. Breakfast was served in the dining room overlooking the sea, and what a super breakfast! Enjoyed the place and hospitality so much, have booked again for November.

You should tolerate the old fashion furniture and interior (old English style), though ;-) Private and direct access to the beach, 3 friendly Dogs. Small TV (we do not Need one). Room 1...
