Thalassa offers self catering accommodation on the beachfront in Voorstrand, Paternoster on the Cape West Coast.

Paternoster, Vredenburg, is one of the oldest coastal towns on the West Coast of the Western Cape. Due to strict development guidelines, the village retains an authentic atmosphere with whitewashed homes against a cobalt-blue Atlantic Ocean.

The endless sandy beaches invite you to go on long walks. Quite often one can spot dolphins, seals and whales. Bird life is rich and the sacred ibis can also be seen.

Fresh seafood caught daily by local fisherman, can be enjoyed at a number of local restaurants. The crayfish, for which Paternoster is renowned, is a must.

Paternoster is a haven of peace and tranquility which you can enjoy while staying in Thalassa.

Thalassa offers the following:

Thalassa is a romantic cottage for two persons, right on the beach.

It has a queen-sized bed with crisp white linen. There is a television and Full DStv (No smart card needed) in the bedroom.

There are concertina doors that open completely to give you the feeling that you are outside, although you are inside. There is an inside fireplace and a cd player/radio.

The kitchen is fully equipped with a four plate stove with oven, microwave oven, refrigerator with freezer. All other utensils, crockery etc. is provided.

The bathroom is newly renovated. It has a shower, but no bath.

On the wooden decks you can spend time either by having a braai, or just relax on the reclining chairs. From the stoep you can observe the activities of holiday makers, fishermen, sea-birds, whales (in season), dolphins, etc.

You have a sea view from about every angle in the cottage.

You only need to bring beach towels, fire-wood, food and drinks. Please no smoking in the cottage. No pets allowed. A cleaning service is available at an extra rate.

Body boarding, wind-surfing and canoeing can be done right in front of the cottage. It is possible to swim, but then you should be brave enough to dare the cold water.

Cape Colombine Nature Reserve and light house is about 3 km from Paternoster. Vredenburg is the closest big town (15 km) and offer all major shops.

The idea of visiting Paternoster, is not to rush all the time, but to relax and enjoy the nature, and the tranquility of this beautiful quaint fishermen's village.

Why the $elect Stays initiative?

  1. Encourage and boost local tourism through making holidays more affordable.
    This is achieved by offering locals a 15% saving. The same 15% that would have left our shores had it been paid as commission to an International Booking site.
  2. Reduce the dependancy on large International Booking sites.
    This is achieved by building up a loyal following of verified users who we will market to on an exclusive and regular basis to maximise the opportunity.
  3. Ensure more money stays within local tourism to benefit us all.
    It is no secret that the large International Booking sites pay no or very little tax to South Africa or Namibia. By taking back a little more control we boost our own economy, and in particular, our local tourism. This is good for us all.
    Read this article on how the Australian holiday accommodation sector is suffering in the same way.
  4. Exclusive.
    Only listings on Stays can participate, which means less competition for bookings.
How it works for accommodation-seekers:

Anyone can register as a $elect Stays member.
There are no costs involved to register as a member.
On registration, we issue them with a member number.
They use their member number when they send an enquiry.
The number is verified automatically BEFORE the enquiry is sent.
The property is notified on the enquiry that they are a verified member.
Property ensures that the quote includes a 15% saving.

Terms & Conditions

  1. The property (you) must offer the 15% saving to all verified members
  2. Verification is done automatically at the time of an enquiry. It is at the property’s discretion whether to offer the saving for a telephonic enquiry. (As you have no means to verify the membership number, it is advisable to get them to do a formal enquiry so they can be verified).
  3. If the property is currently running a "Special" greater than 15% then the "Special" price will apply. (No further savings needs to be offered). EXCEPT in the case where the "Special" is lower than 15%. In that case the 15% will apply.
    Example: A property offering a 10% discount, must offer an additional 5% discount to valid members - so they get a total 15% saving.
  4. The property must offer valid members the saving all year round. (Properties that pick and chose in which seasons to participate run the risk of being removed from the programme completely. Allowing selective participation defeats the integrity of this initiative).
  5. The property must not inflate the price before the 15% is applied. Prices displayed should be the rack rate. (The official or advertised price of a room).
  6. The property must honour any bookings made while the property was participating as a $elect Stays property.
  7. The property must honour the agreement and the spirit in which the initiative is designed to benefit local tourism.
