It is located in a quiet neighbourhood, in close proximity to a decent selection of quality amenities as well as some of Windhoek's best restaurants. To add to the convenience it is within a short drive to the city center. Individual travellers, self-drive tourists and small families bookend their first and last evenings in Namibia here. Not only is it comfortable and safe, there is plenty of room to unpack your suitcase or load your 4x4.

Windhoek was established around 1840 by Jonker Afrikaner. His settlement was near a hot springs, located in the present-day Klein Windhoek. In the next century a German businessman and entrepreneur John Ludwig played a significant role in the development of the area and he is often referred to as the founder of Klein Windhoek.

Present day, upper-class Klein Windhoek packs in all the main features and services any visitor needs for a short stay. There is a variety of stores, surgeries, pharmacies, supermarkets, filling stations, banks and 24hr ATM's nearby to Villa Violet. Relax in a number of European style coffee shops, bars and restaurants, all fused with the gentle charm and charisma associated with your host country.

All of the rooms at the villa, including the lounge and breakfast room, are set around a picturesque courtyard. A continental buffet-style meal is served in the breakfast room. Complimentary coffee is available throughout the day and a plate of delicious home made biscuits are never far away. All of the inside rooms are non-smoking, but guests may light-up outside if they wish.

The small swimming pool is ideal for cooling down after a long road trip. Off-road parking behind a walled, electronic security system enhances your safety. Remote control devices to operate the electric gate are provided and a security guard is on duty during silent hours. Hosts Heidi and Ben can recommend a number of popular restaurants for dinner, including the legendary Joe's Beerhouse.

Nice B&B, great location, easy to find coming from the airport, great neighbourhood, helpful staff/owners. We arrived very early in the morning and our room was available, so it was very appreciated after two days of travel.

This was a very enjoyable stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was not the greatest but the hospitality made up for that. I am glad we stayed 2 nights as it gave us time to get over the flight before we picked up the car and set off.

Beautiful guesthouse in Klein-Windhoek with a lot of charme, the veranda style rooms as well as the reading room made it outstanding. The owners are very nice and helpful. The rooms are a bit small compared to Namibian average (which is rather large by European standards)

Villa Violet is an excellent guest house. The setting is good and very convenient, the facilities are great and the service provided by the staff, but especially by Heidi, was excellent. Also, a very nice breakfast is provided. We will certainly stay here again when visiting Windhoek
