Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Good central location. Very helpful owners.

A good place for a break in between long drives.

From Swakopmund, Expert Africa organised a day-trip to Sandwich Harbour for these travellers. They commented:

This is an excellent trip, particularly for someone keen on birds, but also for anyone interested in extraordinary scenery and wildlife.
Ernst was a very informative and friendly driver/guide. As well as the birds we saw lots of jackal and learned a lot about the issues facing the area..

Driving over the dunes was quite an experience.

A very nice lunch was provided, although it didn't quite match the sumptuous feast which I'd imagined, having read previous reviews.
Highly recommended.

Peter and Margot could not have been more helpful. The apartment on the Strand was outstanding.

We did quadbiking, sandboarding, kayaking with Cape Fur seals and shark fishing from the beach. It was fantastic fun and our children loved it. Swakopmund was amazing.

The restaurants were first class, especially the Tug. They have no concept of portion control and two standard main courses would have fed all 5 of us. It was useful to just settle for three nights before the next leg. The distances are vast and you need to pace yourselves. Thank you for your advice on this.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

This was very different to what we had experienced as there was a TV, and the guesthouse was a short walk from the beach so after all the desert landscapes it was anice change.

The staff booked all our restaurants fo us and were extremely helpful.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

We stayed in Room 1. Internet access was complimentary! Very good B&B. Recommend eating at the Tug, Grapevine or De Kelder.....but not the Lighthouse. The Turnstone Tour to Sandwich Harbour with Ernest was excellent...another highlight of our trip. Everything about the day was superb including the gourmet picnic lunch.

We were a bit disappointed with the Pleasure Flights Sossusvlei Trip as we would have liked to have spent more time in the air actually circling Sossusvlei and Deadvlei.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

The rooms were almost too clean and white since we arrived feeling very dusty after a long drive and almost felt we daren't sit down. Help was offered with booking activities but we had arrived with our own ideas and in fact found the town museum in Swakopmund fascinating.

It was an easy walk into town and there were plenty of eating places on offer. The restaurant/museum 'Zur Kupferpfanne' was a delight, stuffed with domestic and industrial relics from Namibia's past. The presentation of the menu was remarkable although the food was not exceptional. The 'Brauhaus' offered a more typical German menu but we found the large portions served and the consequent wastage was objectionable. The whole town was very German in character.

We drove the Welwitschia drive which was very interesting with a completely different landscape but the drive itself was longer than we had anticipated and the road extremely poor.

Pretty quiet guesthouse near town centre

This guesthouse has been most attractively designed and decorated - fresh and light with lovely pictures on the walls. There is a colourful garden to relax in and tea and coffee in the spotlessly clean comfortable rooms. It is in a quiet location but within easy walk of restaurants at night and the town and seafront by day.

Pete and Margo are welcoming and kind. We had a problem with our vehicle and they went out of their way to help us get it sorted. They both work hard at breakfast time to give you a feast to start the day.
