Luderitz - Namibia
Kairos Cottage is a bed and breakfast establishment situated on Shark Island, Luderitz. It provides an excellent option for individual and self-drive visitors to the coast to enjoy the warm hospitality of a family managed accommodation establishment. Views of the bay and the harbour to the rear of the cottage compliment the seaside setting. Visit historical buildings in Luderitz, the former concentration camp on Shark Island itself or take an ocean schooner trip.
The original value of windswept Luderitz to the German colonialists was as a port. The discovery of diamonds increased the financial worth of both anchorage and town with thousands of prospectors arriving by land and sea. A reminder of those days can be seen in the ghost town of Kolmanskop situated a short drive inland towards the village of Aus.
Breakfast at Kairos Cottage is ordered from coffee shop and served in the breakfast room. Many of their guests have thoroughly enjoyed Christo (a former member of the Drakensberg Boys Choir) singing and playing the piano in the morning. It is not unusual for the entire family to join in on occasions either. Breakfast packs can be ordered for early starts and light lunches can be taken in the coffee shop. There is also a laundry service and Wi-Fi connection.
Accommodation is in 5 beautifully furnished en-suite rooms with either queen-size or twin beds. Air-conditioning, tea/coffee station, fridge and a TV with a DSTV hotel package are standard. Each room also has their own braai facilities. Stunning sea views and sunsets can be viewed from the comfort of your own room.
