This homely guest house is very well located and easy to find. This was by far the most comfortable bed we've slept in during our stay. Rooms are spacious and have a private little patio. We were woke to bird chatter, the absolute best way to wake up. Breakfast is amazing with a grease selection.

The guesthouse lies somewhat outside of Windhoek, though we had no trouble finding it, coming straight from the airport. When we arrived, we had a warm welcome and the staff is very friendly and polite. The room (I think we had room 6) was not too special, but ok with everything we needed. It was spacious, I must say that.... More

Very nice place to stay. Rooms are clean and all needed facilities available. Free wi-Fi and good one! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Felt like coming home while working long hours. Close to city and big shopping mall near by. Would come again with family.

We stayed here twice during our self-drive in Namibia, once at the beginning of our self-drive and again at its completion. It is a B & B that offers reasonable accommodation, although our initial room, (up a flight of stairs at the rear of the building) left a bit to be desired in terms of maintenance and size. Our room... More

More urban setting than expected, but good location and friendly and helpful staff. Easy access to the city. Comfortable, if slightly dated, room. Secure parking. Nice green outside area. Good place to recover from the trip or to prepare for the next one.

This is a lovely guesthouse in a suburb of Windhoek, perfect for our first night in Africa. Quite a way from the centre but has a beautiful relaxing garden . Very friendly and helpful staff, who sorted out restaurant bookings. Breakfast was very good.

We stayed here after picking up our camper and before leaving for our 3 week trip. It was comfortable and the note on the pillow was cute. The gardens with the birds were wonderful. Breakfast was great also. My only disappointment was that I could not sit in the gardens to enjoy them in the evening because there were too... More

We enjoyed our stay at this guesthouse in Windhoek. We stayed our first and last night during our Namibia vacation. The rooms were comfortable and we especially enjoyed the beautiful gardens. Note, that this is a guest house, not a hotel. (I noticed in some of the less than stellar reviews that perhaps the guests were thinking they were thinking... More
