Our family's intimate white-washed cottage just 100m from the beach with sea views, named 'kwaThula Too' (meaning 'also a peaceful place'). Wheelchair friendly with a wood-burning fireplace, this is a 'granny flat' next to KwaThula (a larger cottage), beloved by an actual granny (and grandpa). Designed by noted architect, Jaco Visser, and built with thick plaster walls and chunky chimneys in the architectural vernacular of traditional Cape West Coast fishermen's cottages, it is charming and private, with its own security system, parking and path to the beach. A clean, simple, serene space with skylights overhead and a wood-burning fireplace in the kitchen. It is wheelchair-friendly, including a roll-in shower with fold-down seat and railings, under-sink clearance and room to manoeuvre throughout. The outside patio and braai (BBQ) area has a lovely sea view and is shaded by indigenous trees. There is a private path to the lower boundary wall of the property which opens through a private gate onto a path through conserved green space that leads down to the beach. One parking space is designated for this cottage. There is plenty of light, sea air, and tranquility, but no television, wifi or landline telephone.
Paternoster is a charming seaside village with many excellent eating establishments, including Reuben's just a few doors down and Oep ve Koep Bistro known for its hyper-local regional Strandveld cuisine foraged from the land (fynbos) and sea. This cottage is in the Bekbaai area, which is more private and expansive than other sections of the village, and offers its own beach and walking paths. The village is quite small and walkable, but bicycles are available for hire from the petrol station at the entrance to town.
