Villa vista guest house

Villa Vista is a bed-and-breakfast establishment situated in a quiet, but mainstream Windhoek neighbourhood. Only a very short drive from the CBD, it caters for the business community, individual or self-drive travellers and families alike. The close proximity to a wide range of amenities enhances its appeal, not to mention efficient service in a relaxing environment, carefully managed by the family owners. Although the location and the premises are aimed for up-market guests, a value-for-money stay is ensured.

On entering Villa Vista, guests are met at the reception area and can immediately relax in the beautiful guest lounge. Downstairs is the open-air swimming pool and sauna. Other amenities are covered on-site parking and a solar water-heating system.

Filling and tasty breakfasts are served 'al fresco' under a spacious covered balcony. Spectacular sunsets can be appreciated from the same venue. Freshly cooked muffins, tea, coffee, fruit juices, a selection of preserves, fresh bread, cheese, sliced meats can be further enjoyed by the 180º views over the city bowl and Khomas Hochland. A hot breakfast is also available. Ask for French toast with bacon and egg, savoury mince or scrambled eggs and croissant. Alternatively plump for a breakfast pizza.

For lunch and dinner, the management team can advise on recommended local restaurants. Joe's Beer House, a legend amongst Windhoek restaurants, is only a short walk away.

Accommodation is in 14 double size bedrooms including 3 self-catering units, all tastefully and individually designed and decorated. Most rooms have baths and a private balcony or patio. Beautiful en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning, telephone, TV, Wi-fi, hair dryer, hot tray, tea/coffee station, bar fridge and laptop-size safe are standard.

An ideal way to work up an appetite is to visit the Mini Crossfit Gym. WOD's, or Work Outs of the Day as they are known in the muscle world offer an alternative in your daily exercise routine to lifting weights and pounding your shin splints to a pulp on a treadmill. Tone up your body using skipping ropes, dumb bells and a rowing machine instead. That breakfast pizza doesn't seem such a bad idea after a session in Villa Vista's Mini Crossfit Gym.

This is a great hotel, and we all loved it. Wished that we could stayed there on our last day in Namibia instead of the Hilton.

Lovegrove, Tom

Nice enough place and a good place to let us gather ourselves after the flight. Felt a bit unfinished in places but overall fine.

It was good to return to Villa Vista. Again, friendly greeting, and very helpful with restaurant booking. Good selection at breakfast.


14 Aug 2017

Nice hotel. There was some confusion about the family unit (it was assigned to two families). Not sure if that was their internal problem.

Ideal for a short stay in Windhoek. Clean and bright rooms, friendly management. The only negative was very noisy (chinese) neighbours with dogs that barked a lot.

Floyd, Liz

2 Jun 2017

Very pleasant B&B and allocated close to some nice restaurants which were easy to get to and fairly priced. Good facilities at Villa Vista and would recommend it and use it again.

Taylor, Dan

Nice clean and simple accommodation very conveniently located in Windhoek. Good secure parking for self drivers although not if you have a 4x4 with a roof tent as it will be too tall.

Waite, Nicholas

great location and great place to spend the first night of a 2 week trip. The owners were great and the food on offer was very good. The rooms also large and couldnt fault them really.

Thank you for recommending Villa Vista. Francette and team were brilliant and really looked after our large party. I am planning to use Villa Vista in the future when I visit Windhoek on business

O'brien, Kevin

We loved the Villa Vista. We suggest you continue to use this hotel. It is a pretty hotel, very spacious and light, on a quiet street. The breakfast is very good and the owners are friendly and helpful.

Lamb, Alistair

Our final stop. Bigger and busier than House on Olof Palme - but we enjoyed it too. Large room, well equipped, high ceiling and balcony overlooking the pool, with The Social restaurant in walking distance.

Leroux, Colette

27 Jul 2015

Absolutely beautiful. the rooms were spacious and comfortable. the staff was lovely. the food was superb. the only issue was we couldn't fit in their garages [we have a roof box] so we had to park on the road.

Paton, Jamie

18 May 2017

Extremely helpful hosts, dealing with 8 of us arriving/departing at different times - sorted taxis, recommended restaurants, provided a great 'breakfast' snack, very nice accommodation. Thank you - really enjoyed it.


18 Dec 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Vista during our brief stop in Windhoek. It was clean, was safe/secure and provided easy access to restaurants and the city center. Additionally, the owners were very nice and helpful with our questions.

Leber, Elisa

Very friendly couple who run this Lodge. Warm welcome. Very sweet and lovely rooms, good service! They helped us with all the needs we had and we even could choose our room, because it wasnt fully booked. Beautiful terasse with a nice view over Windhoek!

Sumiani, Jeri

This little guest house is an absolute gem. It is close to city centre, but is located in a private residential area. The owners were superb about making sure we got everything we needed. Breakfast overlooking Windhoek was so relaxing and tasty. Would stay again and again.


19 Sep 2014

Great choice, clean, convenient and accommodating. Villa Vista was a great place to start and finish our trip. Very nicely appointed in a quiet neighborhood. Unassuming from the outside, it was elegant and friendly on the inside, with a great upper-story deck looking out on Windhoek.


Villa Vista is at 5 Luther Street, Windhoek, Namibia
