Meike's guest house

Meike’s Guesthouse is an owner-run,warm and welcoming Bed & Breakfast located in a quiet residential area and within easy walking distance to central Swakopmund, all amenities and the beach. It is a well-established venture in the coastal town of Swakopmund. The owners have more than 20 years experience in the Namibian tourism industry.

An advantage of staying here is that it is only a short 5 minute walk to the town centre or a 10 minute stroll to the beach. This is an ideal coastal stopover for individual travellers and families alike who might prefer the option of self-catering in Swakopmund. Many self-drive tourists use this location to shake the dust out of their boots after a tour of some of Namibia's northern attractions such as Etosha National Park. Once refreshed and recuperated, they can fill up their boots again with sand from the country's main southern highlight, the stunning dunes at Sossusvlei or at Fish River Canyon.

Special attention is paid to environmental matters at Meike's and solar geysers heat all the water, indeed the property is the first in Swakopmund to achieve an environmental award from the Namibian Tourism Board.

Apart from being the capital of the Erongo administrative district, this popular coastal retreat attracts many tourists and locals alike, especially in Namibia's hottest months of December and January. There are many outstanding examples of well-maintained German colonial architecture as today these buildings are used for the retail and banking industry, restaurants and bars. The many attractions here include a number of exciting day tours and attractions.

At Meike's the facilities include disable access, free Wi-fi Lan and access to a computer while a laundry service can be arranged.

Accommodation is in single or double rooms. They are all equipped with en-suite bathrooms, TV, tea/coffee station, fridge, private verandah, safe parking and room service is available. Some of the rooms have a fan. The Guesthouse consists of 8 rooms, 5double/twin rooms, 2family roomsand 1 self-catering apartment. All rooms are equipped with flat screen television, coffee & tea station, a fridge, digital safe and hairdryer. The rooms are personally decorated in light and airy colors, exuding a sense of serenity and calmness. Each room also leads onto a small private verandah with table and chairs, ideal for relaxing and enjoying those warm summer days and the beautifully manicured garden. For those cold misty evenings, extra blankets and warm water bottles are available in all rooms.

Coming from Windhoek follow the B 2 into the town. The B 2 is passing over in “Sam Nujoma Av.” At the first robot you are going straight over and turn at the next road to the left. The road sign is “Windhoekerstreet” and there is also, a sign saying “Meike’s Guesthouse”. After 100 m you see “Meike’s Guesthouse” Welcome.
