Friendly and welcoming

Great place to stay if you visit Swakopmund.

However we may well have enjoyed staying at Walvis Bay more as that was where we kayaked with seals - great fun! My wife also had one of the best meals of our trip there in a restaurant called Anchors Aweigh - fantastic Prawns & Wings!

Whilst here, Expert Africa organised a Kayaking at Pelican Point trip. They commented:

We were really glad we did this trip. Well organised by Jeanne who very quickly after send us emails and videos of our time in the water with the seals.

Thoroughly recommend this trip and would say you need to book in advance with Jeanne as her trip is by far and away the best. 3 others offer a similar thing and we spoke to a Dutch family who went with one of the others and whilst enjoying what they did, they didn't get Jeanne's personal touch.

Lovely

A lovely guesthouse within easy walking distance of the sea, town and restaurants.

They gave us an early breakfast in order for us to go sea kayaking and recommended and booked restaurants for us for our evening meals. Wi Fi was also a boon.

Cornerstone Guesthouse

All excellent except that our rooms were not together. Staff very helpful in booking dinners and especially when we had a puncture in contacting the car hire company to get it replaced.

Excellent base for Swakopmund

This was a very pleasant place to stay. Peter, Margot and staff were very welcoming. The room was good and the breakfast excellent.

The location within a short walk of the sea front and town centre is ideal.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

the guesthouse was charming in an excellent location in the town.

Unfortunately, we did not have any time to explore the town, getting in late from Sossusvlei, spending all day on our trip to Sandwich Harbor, and then having to leave early enough to get to Okonjima.

Cornerstone guesthouse

This is a really lovely place to stay in Swakopmund. We were lucky to get a lovely room with extra seating area and outdoor patio - although I think all the rooms have an outside seating area.

It is a short walk to town, and the owner and staff are very helpful. The breakfast was one of the best on the trip. Margo the co-owner is a good artist and we bought one of her paintings. Highly recommended for a stay.

Expert Africa organised a sea-kayaking trip for these travellers whilst they were here. They commented:

This is a must do trip. A short 30 min drive to walvis bay is no hardship and the cornerstone where we stayed arranged an early breakfast. The guides are knowledgeable and the experience of kayaking with seals is wonderful. We saw the flamingoes on the drive to the start point, and Naude our guide was also an expert bird watcher. Very safe and enjoyable trip.
