Accommodation in Swakopmund
The Villa Margherita is an antique Colonial villa, set in the heart of Swakopmund. It is over 100yrs old, and was originally known as the historical building of Dr. Schwietering Haus. At the end of March 2008, after a year's intensive renovation and upgrading, it opened it's doors to the public as a restaurant and guest house. The new owners, Claudine and Amelio, have created a 'guest house of their dreams,' whilst maintaining the original structure and unique charm of the old house.
In building such a place, a more relaxing, spacious and private environment was favoured. This concept enables their guests to receive a more personal and dedicated service from the Villa Margherita's staff.
One of the 7 double rooms (the largest suite) can be converted into a family unit. It has 2 bedrooms and a lounge area. All of the rooms have en-suite bathrooms, a private lounge area, flat screen TV, safe, hair-dryer and Wi-Fi connection. (An Internet point is available in the lounge bar). Some of the rooms have 2 single beds and others have either king or queen-sized beds.
Breakfast is individually served, and guests can even order smoked salmon if they wish. Their Italian restaurant, 'Il Tulipano' is 'delighted to offer guests an exquisite, gastronomical experience.' The in-house restaurant serves a wide variety of Namibian ingredients, in an Italian way of cooking. It offers a fixed menu with regular new dishes, including freshly made pasta dishes, meat, seafood, as well as a mouthwatering assortment of desserts.
The restaurant also has a home bar, which serves a selection of beers, spirits and wines, a perfect setting to relax and unwind after a long day.
There is secure parking and a laundry services here. German, French, Italian and English are all spoken at the Villa. Car hire in Swakopmund can be arranged.
