Abalone House Boutique Guesthouse

Guest house | Paternoster

Boutique retreat on the West Coast

Abalone House is located in the West Coast fisherman village of Paternoster, approximately 160km from Cape Town, making it a perfect destination to escape from the bustle of the Mother City. 

The highly acclaimed local celebrity chef, Reuben Riffel, has opened a restaurant at Abalone House. Linger over an extended breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea on the sun-drenched deck or perhaps indulge in a decadent dinner surrounded by opulent high-backed velvet chairs and crystal chandeliers. The Africa Bar is warmed in winter by an oversized fireplace, and is a vibrant central meeting place. Other facilities include an extensive book and DVD library, a rooftop Jacuzzi with panoramic sea views and an elegant swimming pool, surrounded by a colourful potted garden.

This is a flamboyant boutique guesthouse, with modern furnishings and art mixing easily with oversized antiques and rugs. Old silver, crystal and feather fringed lamps live comfortably alongside stone floors and rough wooden ceilings. 10 magnificent suites are designed around a tranquil, central courtyard. All offer an en suite bathroom with underfloor heating, iPod docking station, Flat screen TV, laptop safe, Italian coffee machine and stocked mini bar.
