Situated in the small bay of Bekbaai in the quieter area of the sleepy, West Coast fishing village of Paternoster, Gonana Guesthouse is bordered by a gorgeous nature reserve and is just a few kilometres from the iconic Cape Columbine Lighthouse.
Originally a family home, it’s been completely transformed into a fantastic home away from home for your enjoyment. With its unique position directly on the beach, it’s the perfect West Coast hideaway. Swedish owner Jonas Sandström brings a wealth of experience and passion, something palpable in the beautiful space he’s created, with its rich details, tasteful touches and eco-friendly approaches such as use of grey water, solar energy and water-saving showers.
Each of the eight rooms (seven double rooms and one studio apartment) has been carefully designed to promote a sense of calm, tranquillity and comfort. The décor is inspired by the natural surroundings of sea, sky and sand, giving a decidedly Scandi-African look and feel to the guesthouse. High ceilings, skylights and huge sash windows help to create open and light spaces, with stunning ocean, mountain and pool views adding to the serenity and beauty. Each room has its own private veranda - perfect for lazy evenings with a glass of wine in hand.
The heart of the guest house is upstairs where the enormous lounge can be found overlooking the sea. A cosy fireplace warms up the room on chilly days, while the outdoor veranda is ideal for sunset drinks and hot mornings when you need some shade. Tuck into a delicious breakfast each morning while soaking up the views before another day of exploring.
With its pleasing mixture of old and new, inviting vistas, attentive service and calm ambiance, Gonana is the perfect escape for those looking to reset and enjoy a wonderful seaside stay.
