This cottage is a lovely place to stay for a vacation or weekend away. It's not directly on the beach but an easy walk, and walkable to restaurants and some shops in Paternoster. The space itself is very nice, with plenty of room and very comfortable furniture (not the usual tacky uncomfortable beach house furniture you often find). The cottage is also reasonably well insulated so would be ok for a winter trip. It's part of a collection of cottages and (I think) a hotel, so on check in they had us sign another forms including agreeing to certain costs for damages (which should be listed in the posting, but were reasonable). The other thing to be aware of is that crime is an issue in Paternoster, and while there is a neighborhood watch, it does affect how you can use the space (i.e. keeping windows closed, and warnings not to keep valuables in sight from the road). For example, we did have someone come up to our door and ask for money (and peer through the windows at us, which was more the issue). Again, not specific to the house but good to keep in mind. Overall a great cottage and very comfortable place to stay.
