We had an amazing stay - the manager was very clear about being concious about the petty crime and we had no issues - when the place is locked properly it's impenetrable! It is such a lovely house and Paternoster is quite a beautiful destination, will definitely visit again in the future. Highly recommended!
We booked Visvanger for the jazz festival 2018 at Tietiesbaai. The Saturday morning we came back from the festival, the house were broke in! The window of the door without any safety gate were smashed. There is no alarm installed, and the manager and caretaker, was very cheeky to say that "crime is everywhere", when I asked them, why there is no alarm and safety gate. We lost 3 phones and a laptop!!
We will definitely not book again, please stay away!
We booked Visvanger through travel ground and the map showed the cottage facing the beach and sea, it doesn’t it onlooks a dry bushy field with plastic bags and rubbish in it! It said the patio has a daybed, but it did not and was subsequently told it was stolen. We were suppose to get WiFi but it does not have.
The kitchen is small to do a lot of cooking, but sufficient. The main bedroom and en-suite bedroom is confortable but the third bedroom with single beds has a cracked window so was terrible noisy and cold due to the wind. There is Dstv but it was cut off the first day we were here. The linen and beds were comfortable. Not very clean floors.
Overall we wouldn’t stay at Visvanger again. It wasn’t what we were sold!
