We have been visiting Cornerstone Guesthouse on New Years Eve and stayed for two days. Swakopmund was very busy during that season and we were more than happy, that we could just leave our cars in the Guesthouse and walk to all places. It is situated quite centrally (a bit to the south) and it's just a 5 minutes walk...

Our Agent picked this one for us and we were not disappointed. Very spacious and comfortable and owner managed by a lovely couple. Rooms were spotless and the area quiet so a good night's sleep was assured. We stayed two nights.

Located in a great location for access to centre and the main route through, the guesthouse offers secure parking and a pleasant environment to stay, staff very friendly, rooms clean and tidy and breakfast was good. Ate at The Jetty, which was very good indeed, book before hand as it was busy.

We loved this apartment from the moment we walked in and saw the view! We couldn't have been any closer to the seafront. This was not like a rental property at all, much more like staying in someone's smart and well looked after home. It is beautifully decorated and equipped. 3 spacious bedrooms - 2 of which open onto the...

This B&B is convienently located to visit the town on foot and nearby fine restaurants. The rooms with patio, breakfast area and garden are luxurous, very well maintained, clean and hygienic. Best of all is the super-friendly staff and management. They provide excellent tips, help with last-minute restaurant reservations and even took care of our car issues while we were...
