We stayed for two nights whilst exploring Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. The staff were lovely and helpful, breakfast was also lovely and plentiful, and our room was spacious and comfortable. The guesthouse is within a short walking distance of the centre of town and the jetty, so a great base point. It's also easy to find when you arrive in...

Our group of 4 had 4 nights in this 3 bedroom apartment and found it very comfortable, clean, quiet & secure. It has everything you need plus good wi fi. 1 block from the main street meant that we could walk to everything including good restaurants. We were impressed by the friendly service from Peter & his staff when we...

Cornerstone manages an apartment that sits right on the beach - An der Molen. It must be the best location in all of Swakop. The apartment is luxurious and big, on the main beach (with no road or house in front of you) and very well maintained and equipped. I can't imagine staying in any other place when in Swakop.

Peter and Robbin were delightful. They were very helpful and willing to spend the time needed to answer all the questions. The dinning room was very elegant, bright and cheery as were the rooms. Breakfast was wonderful with great music playing in the background. The bathrooms were very large - bright white. We would stay there again in a heartbeat...
