Lovely guesthouse a few minutes walk from town. Helpful staff who booked our evening meals - which was harder than it sounds as most places were already fully booked at peak of season. Also half of the restaurants are closed on Mondays!

This place was great. We wanted to eat some seafood and the owner quickly called and got us reservations before we were even checked in. She also recommended that we take the moon landscape drive to see the welwitschia plants, and it was well worth it even though we were quite tired of driving.

Excellent guesthouse on every level - couldn't have been more helpful, offering bookings, advice, and well connected to good service providers for activities in Swakopmund.
