Farr outweighed my expectations

This guesthouse was a remarkable find for us. Owned and run by Marion & Deon,
the accommodation and surroundings are superb. The bedroom (black oyster) was fitted with everything a traveling person would want, plus many extras. Linen and accessories were better than my own at home!. The dining and sitting areas were furnished with lovely quirky things. The hosts were able to produce a beautiful continental breakfast, despite the Load shedding. Covid 19 rules were in place and we felt extremely safe.

The gardens were full of spring colour and the plants were taken through to the accommodation. Deon was very happy to share his Bird knowledge with us. He also offers guided tours etc.

I would love to return and spend more than 1 night. Thank you Marion & Deon for a delightful stay.

Tranquility and space

Beautiful guesthouse on the outskirts of Paternoster, with every comfort provided. Beautiful garden, teeming with bird life, welcoming hosts for whom nothing was too much trouble, and a delicious breakfast included.

My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at Farr Out Guesthouse in Paternoster. We stayed in the iconic Wigwam Rising Moon and loved the experience.

From the minute we arrived, Marion welcomed us with a friendly smile and warm hospitality. She showed us a map of all the restaurants in Paternoster, I think there are over 20! She then escorted us to our wigwam situated a short walk from the main building. The Wigwam is a truly unique experience, has all the amenities, and we slept really well in the "round" bed.

The guesthouse has an amazing lookout deck where we enjoyed sundowners, gorgeous gardens and chill out areas, and it is amazing to watch the assortment of birds while enjoying breakfast.

We highly recommend Far Out and would definitely return without hesitation.

Absolutely amazing

We thoroughly enjoyed our entire stay at Farr Out Guesthouse. We stayed in the Rising Moon wigwam which was a truly unique and unforgettable experience. The surrounding fynbos and beautiful setting of Paternoster made us feel like we had the whole place to ourselves. We would highly recommend the wood-fired hot tub which was absolutely amazing. Marion and Dion were incredible hosts, providing excellent tips and advice on the local area, things to do and restaurants to visit. Their recommendations were always spot on and resulted in one of the best sunsets we have ever seen. We would also highly recommend the beach front restaurant Gaatjie, another one of Marion and Dion's suggestions. We would definitely visit this beautiful place again and have already recommended it to all our family and friends.

Wonderful stay in Paternoster

Farr Out Guesthouse is a lovely place to stay while visiting the West Coast & in particular, Paternoster. The accommodation is great with everything you need for a comfy stay. The hosts, Marion & Deon are lovely people with lots of knowledge of the area & many interesting stories to tell. We enjoyed the delicious continental breakfasts & forays into the village for dinner.

Long weekend break

The best relaxing weekend I had in a long time enjoying the excellent birdlife, tranquillity, great service and the amazing hot tub. This is very good value for money. Farr Out is but a short 3 minute hop into town if you want to visit a restaurant or go for a walk on the beach. The dirt road to St Helena bay is a stone throw from the entry road to the guest house. Be sure to take your SUV and 4x4 to enjoy some of these routes. Deon can also take you on a guided trip with his off road beach buggy if you do not have a 4x4.

Peaceful, tasty, friendly and something special

We really enjoyed our stay - already for the 3rd time. Marion and Deon are excellent hosts who treat their guests with special attention! Special attractions like the Hot Tub and DeonĀ“s Beach Buggy Tour are definitely worth to join. Rooms are clean, comfy and friendly, with everything you need. The garden is another highlight at Farr Out. Very neat. You should not miss the chair of magic. Was definitely not our last tim!

Wedding Anniversary 28

I booked the Wigwam, the Bathtub and Beach Buggy drive as a surprise for my hubby.
Wonderful experience!! Everything was amazing.

We loved the breakfast setting where our hosts personally prepared an excellent spread of food and conversations with other guests from over the world. The one morning we chatted to Germans on their way back and the next morning we met 2 ladies from the UK.
I loved the birds around there and the most amazing garden with special surprises to look out for.

This is a little haven where we will definately escape to again and again.
Away from city hustle and bustle. A great piece of quiet and calmness where your soul meets with nature's tranquilizer. I absolutely LOVED it!!

This place is simply amazing!

You will love every second of your stay here!
We booked very last minute and we're welcomed by the owner Marion with a big smile and warm hospitality.

The rooms are super clean and beautifully decorated, much creativity went into every detail. And this also translates to the whole property. Everywhere you look there is wonderful detail in the layout and decoration of the place. The shell walkways, the home made bird feeders, the paintings, the super comfy day bed on the patio, a little deck with sun lounges (which is perfect for morning yoga!) sun sails, huge thyme bushes, the list goes on. The included breakfast is rich with tasty treats, the coffee is great and they way everything is presented just blows all expectations.

There is so much love in every detail here, Marion and Deon are very hospitable and super friendly and helpful, I am so glad we came here and I wish we could have stayed longer.
Thanks a lot for this wonderful place you created!

It just gets better and better

I been lucky enough to return to Farr Out twice in the last 6 weeks or so, after not visiting for a few years. All I can say is that Marion and Deon just keep making Farr Out better and better. The rooms are extremely well-appointed, with plenty of space both inside and out. The hot tub remains a highlight of a visit there. The breakfast selection is outstanding, and the staff always go the extra mile.

I will certainly make sure I don't leave it as long to return next time.
