WILLKOMMEN BEIM GONANA GÄSTEHAUS



UNSERE GESCHICHTE

EIN VERLANGEN NACH MAGIE


Paternosters erstes nachhaltiges Gästehaus liegt an einem idyllischen Westküsten Strand mit Blick auf ungebrochene Sonnenuntergänge, verträumte Ecken und blühende Natur. Warmherzige Menschen, unberührte weiße Sandstrände und charmante Restaurants heißen Sie hier zu einem Strandurlaub nur zwei Stunden von Kapstadt entfernt willkommen.

Ein Gästehaus und Unterkünfte für Selbstversorger in Paternoster zu eröffnen war ein natürlicher nächste Schritt für den schwedischen Eigentümer und Unternehmer, Jonas Sandström. Von der Landschaft, den Menschen und dem Licht inspiriert, gestaltete Jonas einen nachhaltigen afroskandinavischen Raum in dem wir wieder zu uns selbst, zu einander und zu unserem Planeten finden können.




UNTERKUNFT

PATERNOSTER

Ort der Hummer und des Lichts


Paternoster ist eines der ältesten Fischerdörfer an Südafrikas Westküste und eines der beliebten Reiseziele für Strandurlaub. Viele Menschen glauben, dass sich der Name, der auf Latein “Unser Vater” bedeutet, auf Gebete, die katholisch-portugiesische Seefahrer sprachen, wenn sie schiffbrüchig wurden, bezieht.

Für uns ist Paternoster Synonym für weiß getünchte Fischerhütten, die direkt am Strand stehen, frische Hummer und ein lässiges Leben. Mit seiner beeindruckenden Küste, die aus zerklüfteten Felsen und weißen Felsbrocken besteht, ist dieses Dorf eines der schönsten Aufenthalte eines Strandurlaubs in der Nähe von Kapstadt.




VERANKERUNG VOR ORT

Unterstützung lokaler Produkte und Menschen


Jonas nimmt Inklusivität und an die Gemeinschaft zurückgeben sehr ernst. Weil er schon seit über 15 Jahren in Südafrika lebt, ist er sich äußerst bewusst, wie notwendig es ist, lokale Produkte, Firmen und Menschen zu unterstützen und zu fördern.

Gonana Gästehaus und die Strandhäuser für Selbstversorger wurden alle mit Hilfe von hiesigen Bauleuten und Auftragnehmern renoviert. Die Inneneinrichtungen und das Badzubehör werden vor Ort hergestellt und das gesamte Gästehauspersonal lebt im Umkreis von Paternoster. Für Jonas ist lokales Engagement ein Lebensstil und die beste Art auf sinnvoller Weise an die Gemeinschaft zurückzugeben.

IM EINKLANG MIT DER NATUR

UMWELTBEWUSST UND UMWELTFREUNDLICH


Wir sind stolz auf unsere Räumlichkeiten, die genauso freundlich zur Umwelt wie zu unseren Gästen sind. Bei der Restaurierung, Renovierung und Umgestaltung der Ferienhäuser am Meer zu idealen Unterkünften am Strand von Paternoster haben wir alles getan, um unsere Auswirkungen auf die Umwelt und die Umgebung zu berücksichtigen.

Heißes Wasser durch Solarenergie, ein Grauwasservernetzungssystem, Regenwassersammeltanks, wassersparende Duschen und ein robustes Recyclingethos machen Gonana zu Paternosters erstem umweltfreundlichen und nahezu autarken Gästehaus, das sich nach modernen Nachhaltigkeitspraktiken richtet.

    What a great place with the beach as your back yard. The staff are amazingly friendly and the wide breakfast options is awesome. There is a honesty bar which is a nice touch and a lekker fireplace in the communal area for those cold nights. Will definitely be back!

    We came to Paternoster for my birthday in June. Gonana Guesthouse felt like home and even better. The room opening directly to the beach was fantastic, the conversation with the other guests over delicious breakfast at the long table were inspiring and the early evenings in the terrace overlooking the ocean so chilled! Stuff for daydreaming.

    My husband and I stayed for 3 nights in June. Loved everything about this guesthouse. Our dog even got a welcome letter with his own special bag of treats. Spotlessly clean facilities. Breakfasts plentiful and scrumptious. The views, oh the views! Stepping onto the beach literally from our gate was magic. The beach is beautiful and you can take wonderful walks in any direction. The staff are professional, extremely obliging and friendly. This is honestly one of THE BEST places we have stayed and I can't wait to go again.

    The cottages are beautifully styled with absolutely everything you need for cooking and just hanging out. Super comfortable beds and a fantastic fireplace. The views are delightful and the garden is full of indigenous flowers. With just a minutes walk to the beach.

    We had seen images online and when we arrived at Gonana Gust House it exceeded our expectations! We were greeted by welcoming staff who attended to all your needs. The best part was looking out to the gorgeous sea view and the feeling of complete relaxation. What a location, easy access the beach to take long walks and close to restaurants in town. Accommodation is very comfortable with attention to detail. Overall a wonderful experience and we cant thank the staff enough for a great getaway!

    What a friendly welcome upon our arrival. Such a beautifully decorated room and house. With a familiar family homely feeling. Everything we needed in our room was at hand or neatly packed away. The beautifully woven blankets were very welcome when waking up in the mornings on the stoop listening to the waves. The best breakfast we have had in a very long time. Well done to the lovely ladies. Did I mention the prime spot on the balcony for sipping bubbly while watching the sunset and just the waves. Our new favorite spot, just a hop skip and a short drive from Cape town. Gonana you win hands down for me. Hoping to see you all soon and often

    A marvellous holiday for the Banner family in a very special guesthouse. Having travelled around the world, I cannot think of any hotel or guesthouse that would be ranked higher than Gonana. The service & the supberb sea views deserve more than 5 stars.
