Reviews for Carpe Diem
Tranquil and relaxing. The service was amazing and it was a wonderful escape. You could hear the sea while you slept and the view from your terrace is unbeatable. We saw whales, 2 dolphins and a seal within 2 days. Utterly peaceful and would definitely recommend
"Rustic seaside home"
Perfect location within walking distance of the beach. Delightful courtyard/braai area with upper viewing deck which is a must for sun downers. Bedrooms clean, neat and adequately appointed. Kitchen/dining area could be better arranged. Really lovely home for those not looking for ultra-luxury but interested in experiencing the Paternoster atmosphere.
We had a wonderful weekend in a really well equipped house. There was more than enough space for our group of seven. The bedrooms are well separated from the kitchen, pizza oven and DStv. Those who needed an afternoon nap were not disturbed by the sounds from the living room. The inside braai and pizza oven add value (and new experience) to the closeness to the beach. We will definitely come back. There is no view, but then, the beach is less than a minute from the front door.
