Welcome to

Gonana Guesthouse

Paternoster, West Coast

Set on an idyllic West Coast beach you’ll find Paternoster’s first sustainable guesthouse overlooking a setting of unbroken sunsets, dreamy corners and flourishing nature. This is a place where warm-hearted people, unspoiled white sandy beaches and enchanting restaurants welcome you to a beach holiday just two hours from Cape Town.

Opening a guesthouse and self-catering houses in Paternoster was a natural next step for Swedish owner and entrepreneur, Jonas Sandström. Inspired by the landscape, the people, and the light, Jonas has created a sustainable Afro-Scandi space where we can reconnect to ourselves, to each other, and to the planet.
