Paternoster is a favourite getaway destination for most Capetonians, known for its beautiful beaches, crayfish and romantic getaway spots!
One of our clients shared a special weekend away at Gelukkie in Paternoster, which offers charming self-catering cottages and wedding and function venue. A great weekend getaway for true relaxation is “little rustic-chic piece of paradise”.
While there, something very special happened…
My boyfriend and I booked a 2-night stay at a little place called Gelukkie in Paternoster. On Sunday we made the 2-hour coastal drive up the West Coast and stopped along the way at nearly every beach town we could.
When we arrived at Gelukkie we were met by Byron who welcomed us, gave us the keys and showed us around. There are 2 cottages to choose from. Klein Gelukkie and Nog n Gelukkie.
We were in Nog n Gelukkie, the place was adorable. Perfect for a couple looking to get away for a relaxing romantic weekend. The first thing I did was kick off my shoes grab a glass of wine and hit the swinging day bed. (The King size bed was inviting as well as the giant shower in the bathroom. In the lounge the huge fireplace would be great for cosy winter evenings!)
It was Bliss!
We booked dinner at a restaurant right on the beach called the Voorstrandt. Where we had a lovely seafood meal and their crayfish is really well priced at R250 – R300 depending on the size. We watched the sun go down at our table and left feeling satisfied.
The next day was a day to remember. I was so surprised by my boyfriend who proposed to me on the beach! It was a very special day and I had no idea it was coming. Perfect ending to a perfect weekend!
The next day we made a little breakfast, packed up and took a slow drive back to Cape Town.
Sad to leave, I will never forget my time at Gelukkie and the hospitality we received.
