To our friends, neighbors and visitors, we say you are welcome here. No matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, how much money you have, what your religious beliefs are or where you are from, Farr Out Guesthouse is for you.
You, the individual traveller, who is seeking peace, calmness and laidback affordable unique accommodation surrounded by Fynbos and wildlife close to Cape Columbine Nature Reserve and the breath-taking beach in a short distance (a few minutes' drive). Farr Out is located at the outskirts of Paternoster, the small charming fishermen village on the South African West Coast less than two hours' drive from Cape Town. It is a relaxed country getaway, close enough for a weekend break but distant enough from the hustle and bustle of hectic city life.
Get ready for an unforgettable experience amongst Mother Nature's treasures: sense the Fynbos' unique fragrances, get a whiff of the ocean's salty air, observe the small FIVE, wake up to the bird calls in the morning and keep an ear out for the owl at night or simply catch a glimpse of the vanishing point of the wild ocean.
Spoil yourself to a wellness evening experience in outdoor wood-fired Hot Tub and a little bit of star gazing in a different way. You might even be lucky and witness some falling stars. Rewind your day, enhance the inner and outer body harmony, release your stress level and recharge your batteries. The Hot Tub is located a bit away from the main house in another famous Wigwam shelter perfect for privacy and romantic evenings.
Ever wondered what is "Glamping"? It has been described as is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature - without foregoing any of life's luxuries. Farr Out created an exciting experience in Wigwam Rising Moon for holidaymakers hunting for the luxurious of hotel accommodation alongside the escapism and adventure recreation of camping. Yes, you read right: a Wigwam (tepee / tipi) in Southern Africa perfect as a romantic getaway along with all the comforts, amenities and even free WiFi.
Built by qualified Tour Guide Deon Van Schalkwyk the vintage Beach Buggy has become an icon of Paternoster. Deon starts his tailor-made tour at Farr Out Guesthouse at the outskirts of the village and gives away part of the interesting history of the fishermen's community. The dirt tracks from Paternoster bay over to Duikereiland are leading through thick sand and dunes and you will feel a little bit of adrenalin coming up. Along the way you might even be lucky to watch playful dolphins and whales in the ocean or Duiker, Steenbok, Secretary Bird, tortoises, snakes and more on terra-firma. Please note the Beach Buggy is NOT a 4X4, but be surprised where this vintage car is able to take you!

What a treat and YES you deserve this too. We booked the glamping option in the wigwam "Rising Moon" and that was really super special. Think howling winds and eerie cries of wildlife but you are tucked into an octagonal bed covered in blankies and even a heatable one under your bum. Morning greets with an instant warm shower and afterwards crossing a wonderful adventure garden with many nooks... Read this review

Fantastic place! Warm and welcoming host, great location. Quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The hot tub and beach buggy ride is an absolute must! This place offers everything you would need on a break away from the city.
Perfect getaway from everyday hustle
The staff were amazing, friendly and really went out of their way even when loadshedding made their lives difficult. The wigwam was something unique and the electric blankets made it nice and cozy. Plenty to see on the property and loads on offer as well. We will definitely be back. One of my favorite spots now.
Quirky & unique
My husband, father and I had the pleasure of staying at Farr Out Guesthouse for a few days in December 2022. My husband & I stayed in the Wigwam & my father had a comfortably, spacious room to himself. Marion & Deon were very accommodating hosts with Marion making reservations for us at local restaurants (we hadn’t realised there was a public holiday & would’ve struggled to find anywhere...
