Welcome to Mental Floss Self Catering Holiday Home. Providing a cosy open-plan loft for two in the heart of one of the oldest fishing villages in the West Coast of South Africa


Mental Floss is situated in the pristine Mosselbank area of Paternoster. Paternoster is one of the oldest fishing villages on the West Coast of South Africa. It is 15km north-west of Vredenburg and 145km north of Cape Town, at Cape Columbine between Saldanha Bay and St Helena Bay.


The loft is within walking distance of Paternoster’s popular eateries. The Noisy Oyster Restaurant is best for its local seafood, De See Kat is known for its sushi and excellent tapas with guests often admiring the artworks displayed. The Voorstrandt Restaurant is set on the beachfront and a must visit. A single bay parking is available on the premises.


The Langebaan and Vredenburg Golf Courses is a short drive away. Other activities in the surrounding area include the West Coast Fossil Park, Tietiesbaai Nature Reserve, Columbine Nature Reserve and Lighthouse, whale and dolphin viewing in season, wild flowers in season and kayak boat trips.


The long white sandy beaches of Paternoster are perfect for a nice stroll and the beaches are positioned perfectly that you can see the most outstanding sunsets. Mental Floss is approximately 200m from the “Hoof Strand” (Main Beach) and 700m from “Lang Strand” (Long Beach).

“Paternoster is an all year round destination famous for its traditional fisherman’s architecture and endless pristine sandy white beaches.”


This tastefully decorated and comfortably furnished open-plan loft style unit sleeps two. The loft has one bedroom with a double bed and an en-suite bathroom with a shower, toilet and basin. The kitchen is equipped with a stove, oven, fridge-freezer, kettle, coffee machine plus pods and microwave. There is a reasonably sized dining area and lounge, plus a veranda overlooking the tranquil surroundings, with a braai facility.
