A slice of paradise down south

In the southern hemisphere, it’s summer right now, so if you’d like to escape the cold, which has hit with a vengeance in the past few weeks, why not consider a trip to South Africa to explore the magnificent Western Cape coastline? Baroque Villas has found a treasure there, called Sugar Shack, a beautifully refurbished fisherman’s cottage in the quaint fishing town of Paternoster


Sugar Shack offers a rustic but ultra luxurious holiday with plenty of style and every modern convenience just two minutes from the beach. It’s the ideal location to sit sipping sundowners and watch a magnificent sunset over the ocean as the fishing boats return with their bounty. Whether you’re looking for a family getaway, an adventure with friends or an intimate weekend for the two of you, this idyllic little cottage is ideal.

Painted white in the traditional West Coast style, Sugar Shack is adorned with pretty candy pink colored shutters and furnished inside with white-washed furniture and carefully chosen art pieces that complement the interior. The cottage boasts an open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge area with TV as well as an enclosed veranda (called a ‘stoep’ in South Africa!) with breathtaking ocean views. The kitchen is very well-equipped so that you can eat in if you wish, although Paternoster offers a selection of stunning restaurants, too.


All three bedrooms are exquisitely decorated and offer comfortable beds and en suite bathrooms. Two of the spacious and well appointed bathrooms boast showers, and the third offers a Victorian bath.


The exterior and interior of this home is painted in the traditional "West Coast" white but is trimmed with pretty 'candy pink' shutters. White-washed furniture and carefully chosen original art pieces complement the home whilst all bedrooms are beautifully appointed with white linen and down pillows.

Life in Paternoster goes slowly and at a tranquil pace. The quaint little fishing town, which is located a mere 145km from Cape Town is one of the country’s oldest and has become very popular recently, offering excellent restaurants offering traditional Cape fare (the seafood on this coastline is legendary) as well as a choice of accommodation. But visitors don’t only come here for the excellent cuisine; they come to savor the breathtaking scenery, which is dotted with huge boulders and jagged cliffs, not to mention long unspoilt beaches just waiting to be explored.


If you’re looking for an untouched paradise in one of the most breathtaking settings imaginable, then you’ll find it here. And staying at Suger Shack will literally be the cherry on top.
