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...

Very clean, modern and well laid out accommodation in Swakopund with friendly staff. The room was great, very relaxing with a patio and chairs. The location is such that you can walk in and out of town to go to restaurants etc. I'd highly recommend this place to stay in Swakopund. Breakfast was excellent too!

It was our second stay this year at Moringa gardens. This is a luxury self cartering app. in the centre of Swakopmund. It has everything you need and the washing machine and dryer came in handy after 2 weeks Namibia. The app is tastefully decorated and there is secured parking off road. The app. is close to all shops and...

Hello Just for clarity, our wifi system covers most of the property and all the rooms. We give a password to access the wifi so that we have some control over non guests walking past the property and to prevent them from logging in. Should the amount of data not be sufficient that we give our guests they are more...

Located just on the edge of the central district within an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Location was nice and quiet which made for a good nights rest. The breakfast selection was amongst the best during my 2 week trip in Namibia. I like having a wide selection of things to eat, plus cooked to order eggs. Management provided...

Stayed in the Atlantik Sicht unit which is a Ground floor apartment with view of ocean and 50 yards to the beach. Very clean and white linen. Near most of the top restaurants such as The Tug and Brauhaus. Washing machine,drier and dishwasher all utilized well. Wifi in apartment helpful to everyone.

We stayed 2 nights in room 4. The room was comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean. There is a sensibly priced mini bar in the room. The initial ambiance is more like a small hotel than a classic b&b. We were checked in efficiently by the very pleasant receptionist and provided with a push button key which operated the gate to...

Lovely bed and breakfast, great location easy to walk to the pier and the Tug restaurant. Great outside space allocated to each room and very spacious room. Secure onsite car parking.
