Sugar Shack is a new fisherman-styled cottage and is located in the quaint fishing village of Paternoster on the West Coast. It offers a rustic holiday with a touch of style and modern conveniences and is a mere two minutes walk down to the beach.

During summer months, enjoy sipping sundowners on the spacious verandah whilst watching the fishing boats return. A roaring fire place in the living area awaits for those chilly and romantic West Coast winter evenings.

Sugar Shack is the perfect sophisticated getaway for long summer family holidays, an escape for friends to reacquaint and intimate weekends for two. The exterior and interior of this home is painted in the traditional "West Coast" white but is trimmed with pretty 'candy pink' shutters. Tastefully decorated with white-washed furniture and carefully chosen original art pieces, all bedrooms are luxuriously appointed with absolute attention to detail.

Be adventurous or take a leisurely stroll to Cape Columbine and Groot Paternoster Nature Reserves or visit the rustic fisherman's haven of Tieties Baai and be inspired by magnificent sunsets. Enjoy simply prepared seafood and fish at the popular Voorstrand Restaurant situated on the beach or buy your own from the local fishermen and prepare your feast at the sugarshack Paternoster.

Paternoster is situated about 145km north of Cape Town on the R27 (15 km from Vredenburg). This picturesque fishing village is one of the oldest towns on the West Coast with very strong fisherman-influenced architecture. Stroll along an 8km stretch of unspoiled white sandy beach while taking in all the majesty of the ocean, country side and quaint white cottages - perfect for anyone who wants to understand what "getting away" truly means.

The nature reserve consists mainly of Strandveld - a combination of coastal fynbos and succulents, interspersed by rocky outcrops. During the early days of spring, the area is a dazzling sight of wild flowers and definitely worth a visit.

Paternoster is the fisherman's haven on the West Coast with the azure Atlantic Ocean providing an abundance of seafood including crayfish, snoek, geelbek, galjoen, white steenbras, hottentot, kingklip, and white and black mussels. White mussels are plentiful in the shallows but tend to move about slightly, so if you're looking for them, watch the Oystercatcher bird for sound advice on where they are easily collected. You will find the locals with fresh crayfish in season normally from November to January. Visit their fishing boats on the beach as they arrive back with their morning's catch.

Paternoster is teaming with wildlife. With mammals such as the mongoose, small wild cat, duiker, grysbok, steenbok, nocturnal fox, porcupine and the occasional sighting of a strandwolf, wildlife sightings are common during your stay. Beware of the precious reptiles as many of them like the tortoise enjoy crossing the roads! Seabirds use this coastline up to Elands Bay as their breeding ground.

Paternoster is a birdwatcher's paradise with over 250 species in the area including the spotted eagle and owl. Whales and dolphins are regular visitors to the quiet bay between March and November. There is an old unexplored cave that the local fishermen claim ends nearly 5km away in Varswater Bay. Here, there are famous and protected Khoi-San paintings. The Khoi-San are considered to the first indigenous people in Southern Africa. For those wanting an authentic taste of African history, the cave and its paintings are a must visit.

Awesome location / stunning house / 5 stars. The only thing that you need to be aware of is there's no washing machine.
