An old Indonesian superstition, a sparrow flying into your home denotes good luck (especially if they build a nest!).  Sailors would often get a sparrow tattoo in the hope that a sparrow would catch their soul if they died at sea. Jack Sparrow might even be tempted to gaze out to sea in this little crows’ nest…

Follow the hidden staircase up to another level of this multi levelled home to our quaint upstairs room. Sparrows’ Nest offers a King Size bed with a small bath and rain shower en-suite. Beautiful views can be captured from all sides of this room including views of the village, the beautiful rock formations of Paternoster and even a glimpse of the crashing waves.

All our rooms are equipped with flat screen satellite television, minibar fridge stocked with cold drinks, tea and coffee making station and hairdryer. A quick few steps and you are on the beach to enjoy the magic that is Paternoster and its long white beaches.

For the more discerning smuggler, kindly note that the WiFi connectivity is slow. Furthermore, Smugglers’ Cottage does not have any self-catering facilities, we are a Bed and Breakfast only. Please remember to reserve a table at one of the many fine restaurants in the village prior to your arrival.

Due to the current, persisting drought in the Western Cape we kindly urge our guests to refrain from using the bath and help us save our precious water. Ask your friendly host of other ways you can contribute to saving water.
