This is a very special place for a couple to stay for a weekend. We wish we could have extended our stay for even longer - the hospitality, quality of the accommodation, tranquillity, location - the list goes on! We will be back! Thanks to the hosts!

Such a beautiful tranquil place, stunning accommodation, we really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you to Andrew, the owner who welcomes us in, arranged wood for our Braai and ensures we were settled. We will definitely be back again!

Such peaceful surroundings, beautiful accommodation, friendly people, and an overall comfortable weekend that exceeded my expectations. One of the most memorable weekends I’ve ever had, and would love to return.

The rustic-chic look belies the tangible luxury and hand chosen quality. This all in a spacious and pristine environment. With owls in the trees, guinea-fowl scratching beneath the bushes and even a turtle or two ambling about, one is treated with the views the only the rough and hard West Coast can bring. Outside, the fenced in garden protects from the sniping winds and one can lay the day away on the sun bed, have a fire roaring in the fire pit, sear some Namakwa lamb on the built in braai, or even just warm up with a glass of wine in front of the spacious indoor fire place. This is the peace for the soul that anyone can appreciate. Gelukkie is nestled just a stone throw outside town which makes it a quieter place during holiday season. The Paternoster Brewery, for delectable food and craft beer, is just up the road, and the Express Shop, for groceries, wood and fuel is just around the corner. All in all, this is a gem of a place and going through the visitors book will tell you that it is a very special haven to all who visit. Go visit, you might even find out that the town of Paternoster is close by...

a lovely spontaneous weekend away booked at short notice. Nog n gelukkie was spacious with a clean, unobtrustive/relaxing aesthetic. High degree of privacy with a private entrance and stoep (perfect for a continental breakfast), although the outside braai area belonging to the unit does open into the beautiful central garden. best couch (I now know what to look for in the future) in front of the inside fireplace, microwave, fridge, gas stove/oven with stovetop kettle, french press, very lovely bath + shower w as assortment of towels, very good mattress (you will sleep late) with bed warmer . Wifi handled video streaming just fine. 1 bag wood and firelighters provided + complementary tea/coffee/sugar. Appreciate the green power and water heating! Only contact was sorting out the key - so not completely contactless, but definitely friendly, hassle-free and unobtrusive. Only a 4/5 due to a couple of convenience/nonessential niggles. Would have loved to stay longer, and overall atmosphere was one of luxury and peace.
