    We had an absolutely wonderful stay. With a small baby the team was so accommodating. We even got a baby cot! Such character, beautifully decorated with a spectacular view. The staff are absolutely fantastic. They couldn’t do enough for us! Great breakfast too! Highly recommended, we will be back!

    We stayed at Gonana Guesthouse for 2 nights. The guesthouse was beautiful and the staff was so friendly! Great and spacious rooms and comfy beds. I big homecooked breakfast every morning as a cherry on the cake. My friend brought her dogs and they were more than welcome, even got their own welcome letter and treats! They really loved running on the beach just in front of the guesthouse. Thank you so much for having us!

    A room with a direct beach entrance, tastefully decorated, well maintained. What a stunning view from the breakfast room. The kind, friendly and customer oriented wonderful staff made our stay at Gonana very special.

    Dear Gonana Guesthouse
    We stayed in the self-catering Acacia House: A beautiful and tastefully designed beach-house. 
    Each room had a lovely bathroom, the kitchen was well equipped, and we so enjoyed braaing on the balcony with the views.
    On Saturday, I popped into the main Guest house to enquire about a mobile charger. The ladies who worked there were extremely kind, warm and welcoming.
    This is definitely a place to re-visit. Clean, stylish and well managed! We loved it!
    So thank you.
    Kind regards
    Nina Smith

    We were pleasantly surprised by the layout of the home each of the 3 bedrooms had a full bathroom. The cleanliness was impressive but most of all, the crockery, cutlery and utensils is of very high quality. There were a few basic groceries(milk, coffee, tea, salt, pepper, oil) item for consumption at no additional cost including dishwasher tablets. Daily friendly cleaning service made our holiday easier. The price we paid for the 5 nights was a pleasant surprise.

    It's the fourth time I stayed at Gonana Guesthouse. I go there to re-charge, breath fresh air, take walks on the beach with my little dog and just find some peace and quiet. One hears the waves when one goes to sleep and when one wakes up. The interior design at the guesthouse contributes to the overall tranquility of being in Paternoster, it's earthy and light. The breakfast is amazing, over night oats, eggs, high quality cheeses and home baked goods. The service is always friendly and attentive. If you're in Cape Town for holiday it is definitely worth the two hours drive up for a night or two to experience the cute and quaint fisherman's village Paternoster, and if you're living in Cape Town, well, then there are no excuses. In both cases I can highly recommend a few nights at Gonana in Paternoster.

    Everything was perfect. Everyone was so friendly. Location is beautiful and as well the view from our balcony! Short way to the beach and a delicous breakfast in the morning. Would recommend Gonana to all my friends and family!

    Wonderful and attentive staff who certainly will go the extra mile for you, house is nicely set facing the ocean, tasteful interior, very generous breakfast. Suddenly realised that the 3 days we stayed went too fast. Paternoster is a small villlage within walking distance with some nice restaurants. The perfect place for peace and recovery! We will certainly return.

    Took a few days off before the Xmas rush and had to go back to Gonana. Pure bliss, surrounded by nature, very friendly staff, beautiful rooms, delicious breakfast and just a little piece of paradise. Will definitely be back.

    Such a wonderful place! Paternoster is a unique place, with the ocean, the light and the lovely village with fun shops and good restaurants. Gonana guesthouse makes this justice and adds value, with stylish and genuine interiors, wonderful staff&service and overall a very friendly atmosphere. Everything was so relaxing and beautiful, we started the day with an excellent breakfast and indeed enjoyed our stay, and slept so well close to the magnificent beach.

    We had an extraordinary stay at Gonana Guesthouse. The surroundings with the wild beach a few footsteps close and the sleepy little town are very relaxing. The interior makes you feel at home- beautiful garden with a small pool, nice rooms and a breakfast to die for. The staff and Jonas really make you feel at home.

    Our group of 16 Swedes loved our 2 night stay at Gonana. Great athmosphere, lovely staff and really nice rooms. "Can we stay here longer, please" our guests said - an evidence that they loved the place.

    We had a wonderful stay at Gonana! The most beautiful Guesthouse we’ve been to yet.  The staff is very friendly. Breakfast was amazing, a wide variety of different cheese and freshly made eggs. You can watch the sea while having breakfast.

    What a great place. I cant say enough about the great staff and the overall vibe of the place. You won't get better in Paternoster for the price you pay. It's an absolute winner for couples who want to get away and relax.

    Our stay at Gonana guest house was wonderful. Its warm, cosy, tasteful and detailed decor make it a place that feels perfectly comfortable but elegantly so. We could not have asked for a better location either. The staff were incredibly welcoming, well-informed and made sure we had everything we needed. A genuinely charming place to stay.

    Gonana is a lovely guesthouse situated right on a beach, with a beautiful view especially of the sunset. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The guesthouse is powered by solar panels...a huge advantage, especially during loadshedding. Paternoster itself is a charming coastal town situated close to a nature reserve.

    Wow, what a place. Gonana Guesthouse has it all, the location by the beach, the charm, the staff, the breakfast, the design, the pool...well the list can be done long. I stayed two nights at the guest house and everything from check-in to leaving was top standard. I will for sure come back - and I am sure to bring others with me. A perfect place no matter if you travel alone or with friends/partners.

    We stayed for the weekend. Half price off the normal price. Per usual the service was impeccable. The room was comfy and we had an absolutely fabulous time. The weather was not too good but we had time to spend in the lounge and just relax. Also had an opportunity to see some flowts. Thanks again Thandi

    From ambience of the place to the welcoming. Thandi was such a wonderful host. Our rooms where prepared beautifully and clean. Was lucky to book the room with a sea view. Sleeping and waking up to a beautiful ocean sound was bliss.
