A bit late, but rather late than never...

My friend and I spend the last two days of our vacation at the beautiful Ah! Guesthouse in Paternoster. What a gem!

Annelise and Arnold Hoon the owners of the Ah! Guesthouse have created a little oasis of sheer indulgence for their visitors.
The Ah! Guesthouse is across the road from the beach in Paternoster.
In the beautifully appointed rooms, you will find everything a 4-star Guesthouse should have but the difference here is the personal touch, from the beautiful Earth products in the bathrooms, the gorgeous Kimono’s and slippers, the tea tray with coffee & tea as well as the most divine shortbread, baked inhouse by Arnold himself.
The house is home to some gorgeous Artworks from various South African Artists Johan Botha, Christiaan Diedericks, and Diane Heesom Green just to name a few.
As for the meals, prepared by Chef and Owner Arnold Hoon, what an absolute treat!! I have eaten in many an establishment around the globe yet the idea of finishing breakfast with dessert has never occurred to me and let it be known I have a sweet tooth. I am the woman who will have dessert before I have my main course given the choice.
Should you be lucky enough to be staying over on a Saturday you can enjoy a special 4-course meal cooked by none other than Arnold. I have heard so much about these Saturday evening dinners, but sadly we couldn't make it this time around.
All in all the Ah! Guesthouse is one of those rare gems in the South African Tourism Industry that is well worth a visit. For those of you that have enjoyed the fare at Ah! Guesthouse you have the opportunity to purchase some of the items to take home with you. Arnold and Annelise sell small quantities of their Shortbread and Granola.

Dear Annelise and Arnold, thank you once again for spoiling us the way you did. We hope to see you again soon.

Made a wonderful discovery- a very lovely, well situated guesthouse right next to the beach. The breakfasts are out of this world and it’s worth the trip just to have dinner by Arnold, who is also a brilliant chef. The guesthouse is super organized, super clean and super neat.

The food was out of this world, the decor exquisite, the room was comfort personified and let’s not forget about our amazing hosts - Arnold and Annalise! With the beach just a stones throw away, it’s just the most perfect place. Highly recommended. Cannot wait to visit again!

For us, a return visit 3 years later. Somehow, even more delightful than we remembered if that is possible. Whilst this 5 star BnB is for everyone, Foodies will be delighted by the Breakfasts and if you are lucky, an evening gastronomical experience! Such great hosts. Highly recommended.

Room tip: We enjoy an Upstairs Room with a communal large balcony, but may perhaps opt for the downstairs room with private patio next time.
