We drove from Cape Cross Lodge to Swakopmund and stayed at the Stiltz. The Stiltz is on the ‘edge’ of Swakopmund but still only a 10-15 minute walk to the main shopping area – but you can walk along the ocean which is nice. We were in room 6 and it had a great view of the ocean, flamingos, sunset...

We stayed two nights at the Stiltz and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We were lucky enough to stay in the rooms that had an unobstructed view of the river mouth were there was an abundance of birdlife as well as a group of camels that came down to drink. The Stiltz is in walking distance from the sea and so...

We stayed 3 nights at the Stiltz and thought it one of the best properties and value for money that we encountered in our 15 day tour of Namibia. Friendly, professional staff who were responsive to all of our requests. Quiet, comfortable and private accommodation with excellent wifi in our room. Just a five minute drive from downtown Swakopmund but...

Stayed at the Stiltz for a third time, location and set up are perfect. Beautiful sunset views. Great breakfast, friendly staff, including manageress. Each bungalow has own balcony and plenty of room inside. Perhaps a shower needs a little freshening up.

Good location about a block from the beach and walking distance to the main restaurants. We felt quite safe walking to and from dinners and a bit further out in search of bottled water (surprisingly difficult to find). Due to availability we stayed in 2 different rooms during our 2 night stay at the Stiltz. Stayed in the big villa...

We needed some refreshment after a few days on the road in Namibia, and found that at Stiltz. Breakfast included, plenty of help booking activities around town, and of course, the relaxation watching the flamingoes and the surf from our balcony. Stiltz are super cool. ONE NOTE: our mattresses were extremely firm. Almost wood. Just a heads up. :-)

We had two nights here in Swakopmund and it was nice to be back in a city after a week in the rugged country to the North. The Stiltz certainly has a novelty feel to the rooms and walkways, but it's more than that with stunning views out over the ocean, certainly from our room. There is also a viewing...

Boy is this place fun, different and unexpected! On stilts by the marsh! I got one of my best travel photos here- walking on the deck I saw a black masked weaver building a nest, and fortunately had my camera! Very fun!

It was an incredible adventure to sleep 2 nights to the hotel Stiltz. The view on the sea, the perfect breakfast, the wonderfull lodges. It's a place where you have to stay if you want to visit Namibia.
