My husband and I had the pleasure of spending two nights in the moon rising wigwam at Farr Out Guest house. It was amazing and private and it was so peaceful. The owners Marion and Deon were excellent hosts and catered to your every need. The staff in general were friendly and funny and the breakfast was yummy. We will...

This is a great guesthouse - very friendly owners and staff and lovely clean and fresh rooms. We stayed with our two children (9 and 13) who were very welcome also. Definitely book the use of the hot tub in advance and also the beach buggy. This was one of the highlights for us as the owner has such great...

Marion and Deon were wonderful hosts. Rooms were comfortable and we had full access to the patio where we even had a small Christmas celebration . The children enjoyed feeding the fish and the illusion chair provided much amazement.

We travelled as a couple and stayed in White Mussel room on ground floor. Excellent walk-in shower and nice views over garden from the room. Bed was too soft/hollow. Farr Out has a good location about 2km from the little town with views over the veld and towards the beach. A good alternative than staying in town.

Marion, the owner was really lovely, before we arrived, as well as during our short stay. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary in this lovely guest house in Paternoster. We explored the beach and enjoyed the quaint village as well as Farr Out Guesthouse, which was quiet and pleasant.

My husband and I stayed at Farr Out in the Wigwam from the 3rd-7th November 2015. Marion and Deon were excellent hosts with extensive knowledge about the surrounding areas. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff were warm and welcoming. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub (coupled with some pizza and wine) and would highly recommend it. The Wigwam is...

Hello Jinal, thanks so much for you kind words and recommendations, this is highly appreciated! Wrt head in the Wigwam: not sure if you did have window flaps open from inside AND outside plus the breezers at the bottom right around the Wigwam?

Nice accommodation, and we just loved the tipi. We enjoyed the Hot Tube very much. We got nice bathrobes to put on after the bath. Everything you needed was there. It is a Farr Out place! We will surely recommend this stay!

Prior to arriving, I can only say that Marion was amazing - attentive, helpful, friendly, funny and went the extra mile to arrange carrot cake for Daniel's birthday surprise.

I may be biased but think this is the nicest place to stay in Paternoster. It's just a little out of town but that's what makes it so very nice.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The few minutes drive from Paternoster 'Center' to Farr Out is not what you would exactly call far. But when you arrive in this sandy bushveld wilderness, you do feel pleasingly remote. Crunching up the glinting shell pathway you can see across an indigenous garden and right out to sea. Catch the glimpse of the last manned lighthouse of South Africa situated in nearby Cape Columbine Nature Reserve or listen to the foghorn and cuddle up.Go on; be extravagant, enjoy your vacation! Four luxury rooms PLUS our new Wigwam Rising Moon will make your stay comfortable and unforgettable in our guesthouse. Your hosts speak English, German and Afrikaans.The perfect 'off the beaten track' breakaway. About 2 hours from Cape Town centre. ... more   less
