We loved this apartment from the moment we walked in and saw the view! We couldn't have been any closer to the seafront. This was not like a rental property at all, much more like staying in someone's smart and well looked after home. It is beautifully decorated and equipped. 3 spacious bedrooms - 2 of which open onto the... More

A lovely B&B, staff were very friendly and welcoming. Breakfast was great, and they happily accommodated a super-early start for us. The rooms were very comfortable and the gardens beautiful. Really close to everything we needed / wanted in Swakopmund.

Very clean, modern and well laid out accommodation in Swakopund with friendly staff. The room was great, very relaxing with a patio and chairs. The location is such that you can walk in and out of town to go to restaurants etc. I'd highly recommend this place to stay in Swakopund. Breakfast was excellent too!

We give a password to access the wifi so that we have some control over non guests walking past the property and to prevent them from logging in. Should the amount of data not be sufficient that we give our guests they are more... More

Located just on the edge of the central district within an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Location was nice and quiet which made for a good nights rest.
