Channel your "Inner Indian"

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 inviting you to sit down and admire, before your sumptuous breakfast awaits at your host's place. Marion and Deon will regale you with anedoctes of Paternoster living while feeding you with the finest selection of German sausages and cheese anywhere found beyond the Cape Town Boerewors Curtain...Do not miss out on the Hot Tub ! Its divine and planned out once more to the last loving detail (rubberducks included). Honestly-what a special time we had. We will be back !

Great breakaway

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 to eat without prior reservations!) and Deon’s conviviality in the mornings at breakfast. Great location to explore local attractions & plenty of wildlife about. Watch out for the moving rocks (tortoises) and we even got to help with rescuing a baby owl.

Wonderful weekend in the Wig Wam

My partner and I recently spent two nights staying in the WigWam, and it was wonderful. Situated a couple km outside Paternoster, we were surrounded by beautiful fynbos filled with many birds (including a resident barn owl), and the sights, sounds and smells of nature. We each had a massage, one of the "add-ons" offered, and it was amazing - so relieving and relaxing. The dune buggy tour with Dion was immense fun - and yes, we did see dolphin surfing in the waves! Paternoster itself has a massive open beach which is lovely to walk on (although too cold to swim) and there are lots of restaurants, ranging from casual dining experiences to the world famous Wolfgat. Marion and Dion are excellent hosts who, along with their team of staff, go to great lengths to make guests feel at ease.

Ultimately, it was the perfect weekend away from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, to destress and reconnect with each other and with nature.

Fabulous Farr Out

What a wonderful experience to have stayed here for a few nights! I could easily write at least three chapters of a book on this lovely Guesthouse :) Such welcoming and knowledgeable hosts, Marion & Deon. We preferred the unique and oh-so-romantic Wigwam/Teepee. Lovely property and from the moment you arrive, you can see that time, thought and care has gone into creating every inch of this property - unique ideas with a great sense of humor as well! One example would be the little footpaths of sea shells - beautiful whites and blues and no doubt the inspiration came from the Cape Columbine nature reserve :) But there is a lot more to see and I suggest you see it for yourself :)

I highly recommend that you also add the Value-added extras like the super fun Beach Buggy Ride (Deon has an excellent knowledge on various subject matters - local fynbos, history of the town, the ocean..) as well as the wood-fired Hot Tub (especially on a cold evening, it is well worth it)

Excellent Breakfasts are included and is a great way to start the day before exploring the area. We love being just outside the village as it can get noisy. Marion is always willing to give advice regarding what to do, where to go, where to eat despite the fact that they already provide the best guest information book in the unit with contact details lol

We'll return again and again as this was just our first of many visits to the West Coast and Farr Out in particular!

A Warm Personal Touch with Attention to Detail

Enjoyed the friendliness and warmth of Marion and Deon. Made it a very special visit. The room was spacious and stylish with a beautiful view. Loved being a bit out of town surrounded by nature and a view of the sea in the distance. The breakfast was great value and a wonderful opportunity to get travel tips from other guests.

We had a short but pleasant stay and it was a great way to end our West Coast Vacay

The guest house is clearly a hidden gem in Paternoster which can be enjoyed by most. Comfortable Hospitality is also a great asset

Quiet and lovely Guesthouse

During the weekend, Paternoster can be busy and noisy. Farr Out was a fantastic place to stay in a beautiful, quiet and super friendly environment. Meet Marion and Deon and enjoy the beauty of Paternoster, you won't regret it!

A Lovely and unique experience!

We had a lovely stay at Farr Out and I was very impressed with the exclusiveness of the guesthouse and with the owners as well.
Marion welcomed us and I was really impressed with the luxuriousness of the rooms, bedding, doors etc!!
The room was picture perfect with the extra touch of loose flowers on the heart folded towels....even in the bathroom basin.
Absolutely LOVED the cool sliding door and windows that can be safely opened while locked!
Breakfast was delicious; also with some exclusive foods, and breads. Just outside of Paternoster, it's quiet and peaceful, but near enough to have dinner in town.
We'll see you again!!

Dear Marion and Deon

We would also like to return a great thank you to you for a wonderful and hospitable stay at your B&B.....Without a doubt will it stay in our memory books for ever, wish we could enjoy Paternoster every weekend, but without the "snakes", LOL😊.

We would highly recommend your B&B to everyone we know without a doubt. Based on our observation, you have everything in place Marion, and if your guests require assistance with luxury/necessary equipment(such as a microwave), you are most willing to assist.
Thank you once again.

Hope to see you in the future...

A special treat
Was great to return to Farr Out 5 years later and it was even better. Highlights of our stay were the beach buggy adventure with Deon and an evening under the stars in the hot tub. The big advantage of Farr Out is being 5 mins away from the tourist bustle of Paternoster - close enough to find a good place to eat but away from the noise etc. The garden and birdlife is wonderful. The room met all our needs and breakfast on the stoep was lovely. Staff friendly and helpful.
And a lovely addition is the brewery within walking distance.

Wow...where does one start when you've had such a magical stay all round with amazing hosts. Marion and Deon are so proud of their beautiful guest house and that is seen in the stunning decor and layout of the rooms (and probably one of the best showers I've had in a LONG time), to the yummy home cooked English breakfast (and I have never seen poached eggs cooked that perfectly) to the wonderful hot tub experience, and ending off with the bucket list MUST do beach buggy safari with Deon. His knowledge on the area and fauna and flora is incredible.
Farr Out Guesthouse is a wonderful, owner run and managed establishment that is worth more than the highest rating. Thank you for such a special stay....I wish it was more than just 1 night but we WILL be back.

Wow, is all we can say! Unfortunately we could only spend one night there due to them being fully booked for the long weekend, no surprises their. Very friendly and well informed hosts, excellent ability to read their guests and guide us in directions to our culinary and interest tastes. Would highly recommend, we will be back! Deon and Marion are diamonds in the industry. Well done!

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.

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 Deon´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.
