This was located on Shark Island, away from the hustle of the town, but within walking distance. We had a great stay at Seagull Cottage. There was a balcony with views of the sea. There was no air-con but an effective fan which we used.

From early on I felt welcome. Retha, busy as she is with her hands full, had a warm friendly way making me feel at home and very welcome. The self catering room was spacious and provided with all the necessary things to enable self catering. A micro wave oven would have been much appreciated - maybe its on its way...

Retha was an excellent hostess! We really appreciated the beautiful "welcoming note" that really made us feel very special and welcome! Excellent value for money and the bonus is the beautiful sea view you get for free! Definitely highly recommended!

Good value for money with a sea view. One of only a few places in Luderitz that is close to the sea. Very friendly owners and comfy rooms. The list of attractions found in the room is a very nice added touch and was very helpful.

We arrived in Luderitz and made our way to the cottage which is in a great location. We had made a booking months before and had confirmed it but when we arrived the staff were not expecting us. After a long drive the last thing we wanted was to stand around whilst the staff member tried to contact the owner...

Dear James, Thank you for your review. I am very sorry that you didn't find everything satisfactory at Island Cottage, as I always strive to give the best to my guests.

Very pleasant adequate self catering accommodation for two in each unit. We were three so a little crammed but we were well aware this would be the case when we made our reservation. Owner Pierre was very helpful with local advice and securing us somewhere to eat dinner on the public holiday day we arrived. Be warned public holidays are...

My wife and I decided to spend our anniversary at Luderitz. After a long and tiresome journey from Windhoek, we were welcomed like old friends from years gone by. The accommodation was in an an immaculate condition. The cherry on the cake was the welcoming note that, amongst others, stated: "even though we may not get to know you, we...

We were only one night at this lovely guest house but we enjoyed every moment. The location overlooking the wind and waves on Shark Island is amazing! We had a room on the front facing the water and, even though it was near the road, it was totally quiet (other that the famous Luderitz wind, which is part of the...
