Located at the south end of the beautiful Paternoster beach, these apartments are very comfortable and well equipped. Cornelia is a gracious host, full of good advice on what to do in this charming little village, where everything is within walking distance. But the ocean view is the best feature. Happy to come back!

We had a lovely soft landing to be able to stay here, as we were looking to buying a place in Paternoster. The service was very good and had a beautifully cat that visited us every day. BUT the crime is so bad you have to lock up very thing and I mean ever thing.

Clean, spacious accommodation with the best views in Pater Noster. Close to restaurants, shop and beach. Bath and shower - with beach views! Well equipped and attentive agent who was very helpful. Recommended.

Wonderful reception, well appointed large house, incredible views. Great eateries in walking distance. We did not use our car once in 4 days. Can't wait to return. One tip for management: add curtains to the masterbedroom in the Rijger. The light through the blinds woke us up at 5.30 a.m., but we managed by taping blankets to the window :-)

Great, contemporary, and spacious. I doubt the homes are all the same, but the one I stayed in had a killer kitchen, and even though it wasn't "ocean view" because it was behind others, it still had a darn good view of the bay.

We stayed 4 nights in Paternoster. We enjoyed the situation of the apartments of La Baleine. Spacious, comfortable, direct access to the beach, well equipped. And what a view... can't stop thinking about it. We want to go back as soon as we can. This has also to do with the extremely helpful and smiling staff. Mozes is everywhere and...

For self catering travellers this is a sweet little place. We found everything we needed in the suite to enjoy our stay. The collection of suites are right near the very end of the beach perched just above a more private cove. The walk to the beach is beautiful.

Amazing location and stunning accommodation. Lots of attention to detail, such as flowers on the beds, deck chairs outside and well-equipped kitchen. This must be the best location to be found in Paternoster.

We stayed at La Baleine 3 nights and the unit was perfect for our stay. Right on the beach. We loved every moment whilst we stayed there. Cornelia was really amazing and so so helpful. We hope to be back soon to this lovely place.

La Baleine is a 10 beach house/ studio rooms collection right above the beach on the southern end of Paternoster (Latin for "our father"), a fishing village on South Africa's west coast. The whole village is white buildings with blue roofs to match a Greek theme. At La Baeine, Cornelia is the amenable hostess and is really helpful and nice....
