Stay With

Gonana Guesthouse

Paternoster, West Coast

Moffid's Room
Each of our 8 rooms at Gonana Guesthouse promotes a sense of calm with décor inspired by the natural surroundings of sea, sky and sand giving a decidedly Scandi-African feel.

We have 6 Double rooms, 1 Triple room and 1 Studio bedroom. Please note that our guesthouse is not self-catering, therefore we have no braai facility. Should you wish to braai we’d gladly welcome you to stay at our Houses instead.

Eco-conscious Living

All of our accommodation options are interruption-free thanks to their self-sufficient green practices, promising you an interruption-free holiday along the West Coast.
Moffid's Room
Both of our holiday houses in Paternoster are serviced daily, so while you can sit back and enjoy the privacy of self-catering accommodation, you won’t have to lift a finger. We want you to live intentionally and be present in every moment during your stay with us.

Guest House

Live slowly and tread lightly in Paternoster’s first-ever sustainable guesthouse located directly on the beach. Fresh breakfast with local organic produce is how we serve the start of each and every day during your stay.
Moffid's Room
Each Studio also has its own private outdoor dining space, and undercover braai area overlooking the fynbos garden with its KolKol wood-fired hot tub available to guests on the property.

The Bekbaai beach is just 60 meters away, which means that one can hear the crashing of waves at night and guests are just a short hop and skip away from the expansive Bekbaai beach that neighbours the Columbine Nature Reserve.


Two beach-style houses set 150m from Paternoster’s Bekbaai, experience our latest sustainable self-catering accommodation that is off the grid, allowing you to enjoy your West Coast holiday without any interruptions.
Moffid's Room
This 3-bedroomed Paternoster holiday house (sleeps 6) is the latest addition to the Gonana Collection, making it a sustainable hideaway that’s kinder to the world with chemical-free products used throughout the property. In keeping with the laid-back lifestyle of the Collection this property is serviced daily, so cook to your heart’s desire and live a little.

The outdoor braai area, front porch and enormous indoor fireplace promise a West Coast getaway that’s filled with memory-making, fireside chats and afternoons spent basking under the sun.


Behind our Coral Villa lies 3 renovated and well-appointed self-catering Studios, designed in the Gonana Collection’s signature Afro-Scandi aesthetic – perfect for those looking to explore Paternoster on foot.
