Raserig. Vreeslike rumoer, vloekery en musiek deur plaaslike mense by opelug mark dwarsdeur Kersgety.

Rumoer elke aand tot laat aangehou, met bottels wat gebreek is en plaaslike groter kinders wat met drank rondgeloop en vloek het op klippe voor vinkie. Kastrolle en bakke in swak toestand. Geen WiFi. Buite-braai in swak toestand, twee bakstene voor uitgebreek.

Noisy. Terrible commotion, swearing and music by local people at open air market throughout Christmas tide.

Every night the ruckus continued until late, with bottles being broken and local bigger kids walking around with booze and swearing on stones in front of vinkie. Casserole and bowls in poor condition. No Wi-Fi. Outdoor braai in poor condition, two front bricks broken.

Hi Marietjie en Paul
Baie dankie vir die terugvoering, die Mark voor Die Kom se eenhede is rasering inderdaard en ons het ongelukkig geen beheer hieroor as om Wetstoepassers te skakel indien so 'n probleem opduik. Ons neem kennis van die kastrolle en bakke en sal opneem met die huiseienaar om te vervang. Ons hoop egter dat ons jul weer kan terugverwelkom in die nabye toekoms onder beter omstandighede.

Basiese, maar gemaklike verblyf.

Die huisie was heel oulik en die kamers en badkamers gemaklik genoeg. 'n Spieël in die hoofslaapkamer sou gehelp het. Die bed was bietjie ongemaklik hard. Die kombuis was goed toegerus en die kaggel lekker vir die koel aande. Dit lek ongelukkig water wanneer dit reën. Omdat dit naby aan die hoofstrand en die badkamers daarvan geleë is (wat nie op die foto's gewys word nie en nogal 'n seer oog is), is dit baie besig rondom die huis en dit raas meeste van die dag rondom die huis tot laatmiddag, veral van die permanente inwoners van die dorp en die mense wat die badkamers gebruik. Die bure was baie raserig en het hul glad nie gesteur aan die versoeke van die sekuriteit om hul musiek af te sit 11 uur in die nag nie. Dit ook ten spyte van kennisgewings dat geen geraas of harde musiek gespeel mag word nie.

Basic but comfortable accommodation.

The cottage was very cute and the rooms and bathrooms comfortable enough. A mirror in the master bedroom would have helped. The bed was a bit uncomfortably hard. The kitchen was well equipped and the fireplace nice for the cool evenings. Unfortunately it leaks water when it rains. Because it is located close to the main beach and its bathrooms (which are not shown in the photos and are quite an eyesore), it is very busy around the house and there is noise around the house most of the day until late afternoon, especially from the permanent residents of the town and the people who use the bathrooms. The neighbors were very noisy and did not bother at all to the requests of the security to turn down their music at 11 o'clock at night. This despite notices that no noise or loud music may be played.

Thanks for your feedback, Die Kom where Vinkie is situated can be very challenging in terms of noise levels etc. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay although the issues mentioned in your review. We hope that we can welcome you as our guests again in the near future.

Good view of the beachfront, luckily not so busy and fireplace kept us nice and cosy during cold, chilly nights.

Our stay was marvelous although during the winter season. Vinkie has all the facilities a small family would need and accommodated our little Maltese dog. Fireplace kept the lounge and kitchen area warm and cosy for us to enjoy quality time together.

House was clean, cooking equipment not the best quality, we had to place bricks in the braai to balance the grid.

Not the best location, we were a little disappointed and did not feel very secure. It was in the first row of houses behind the "harbour", which seemed very popular amongst the younger generation with loud music playing from their cars in the evening and the bass vibrating our table.

Hi Luschka, Thanks for your feedback. We are so sorry to hear about the experience you had with the noise levels etc. Booking a house in Die Kom can be very challenging especially with the locals hanging out at the Market, we however have no control over this but do report it to the Neighbourhood watch and policy if we get complains. We hope we can welcome you back into lovely Paternoster one day under better circumstances.

Ons het baie onveilig gevoel tussen al die bedelaars en kreefverkopers om die huisie.

Die buurtwagmanne het patrolleer, so veel hul kan, maar steeds is dit onveilig. Daar was aaneen iemand by die hekkie of 'n venster wat ons privaatheid geskend het. Ek sou meer slaaibakke en 'n lang spieël in die woning verwelkom het. Dit was baie skoon.

We felt very unsafe among all the beggars and lobster sellers around the house.

The neighborhood watchmen have been patrolling, as much as they can, but still it is unsafe. There was always someone at the gate or a window who violated our privacy. I would have welcomed more salad bowls and a long mirror in the residence. It was very clean.

Amazing Weskus-verblyf, met 'n vuurtjie en wyn om die sonsondergang te geniet.

Baie goed versorgde eenheid met al die geriewe wat mens nodig het.

Good, but too much interference from vendors.

Vinkie is very nice accommodation but I was put off by the crayfish vendors who were extremely demanding, to the point that my wife felt quite nervous. That was not very relaxing. A television in the bedroom would be an idea.

Baie gerieflik, mooi en goeie waarde vir geld.

Baie goed ingerig, met alle benodige vir 'n naweek weg. Baie mooi uitsig en omtrent op die strand geleë. Dit is egter reg bo die publieke area / Saterdag mark - wat soms deur die dag raserig is met baie voete wat rondbeweeg en moet dopgehou word, gegewe die waarskuwings rakende veiligheid. Maar verder was dit baie aangenaam en sal dit aanbeveel.

Very cofy, beautiful and good value for money.

Very well appointed with everything you need for a weekend away. Stunning view and basically on the beach. But it is right above a public area / Saturday market - so quite noisy with lots of people that need to be watched, given the safet warnings. But otherwise nice and I can recommend it.

Dt was amper baie lekker.

Die verblyf was goed, maar die skottelgoedwasser werk nie, en die oond was vuil binne. Dit blyk ook nie uit die foto's op die webwerf dat die "mark" reg voor die huisie geleë is en die see-uitsig versper nie. Daar is ook ongelukkig ongewenste straatkinders wat skulpe en krewe probeer verkoop by die huis aangesien hulle by die mark rondhang. As dit nie hiervoor was nie, sou die gebrek aan uitsig nie saak gemaak het nie, maar die gebrek aan privaatheid was bietjie 'n probleem. Die huis is wel gerieflik na aan die strand en netjies.

It was almost very nice.

The accommodation was good, but the dishwasher did not work, and the oven was dirty inside. It also does not appear from the photos on the website that the "market" is located right in front of the cottage and blocks the sea view. There are also unfortunately unwanted street children who try to sell shells and lobsters at home as they hang around the market. If it wasn't for this, the lack of view wouldn't have mattered, but the lack of privacy was a bit of a problem. The house is conveniently close to the beach and tidy.
