Reviewed 7 April 2016

Quiet, peaceful relaxed - what more is there to say about the apparent isolation of Marion and Dion's home. Gardens are beautifully, but casually maintained and a constant perfume of lavender pervades the air - even the bed sheets are embroidered with lavender sprigs!! Paternoster with it's sense of community , shops and excellent restaurants are only five minutes away.Add...

Hello David, thanks for your fantastic review. Glad to hear that you also enjoy the smell of lavender around, so soothing! So much more to do but happy to hear that you at least experienced our "small 5" around us. Looking forward to welcoming you again in the future. Best regards Marion

Hello Emmanuel and Lieve, thanks so much for your review for Farr Out. It was so nice to have you as guests but such pity you could stay only so short as there is soooo much more to do and see. Maybe another time! All the best Marion and Deon

A lovely few days in a well run and tastefully decorated home, placed a little outside of Paternoster. Marion is ever present, as a hostess, a breakfast "mum", an advisor on the surroundings, things to do and places to see and most important for us, helping out on restaurants in the area. The rooms are not only well decorated, but...

Farr Out is a haven of peace and tranquility. The accommodation is comfortable, clean and bright. We had a lovely patio overlooking the garden where we could listen to the sounds of nature, relax and watch the abundance of bird life. Marion and Leon do an excellent breakfast served with flair and a big smile. What more could we ask...

We stayed at Farr Out for one night, in the White Mussel room on the ground floor. Farr Out's website does not do the room justice! The shower, in particular, was fantastic. One feels very private at Farr Out - the rooms are spaced apart from each other, and this guest house is not where the crowds are in Paternoster,...

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
