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.
Very calm and well run establishment. Pleasant staff/owner
Excellent trip out with Turnstone Tours (Ernst?)
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.

Luxury in Swakopmund
The Cornerstone is a very high quality B&B with a ring of rooms, each with its own veranda, surrounding a beautiful garden. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable (as seems to be the norm in Namibia) and we only sampled breakfasts which were very good.
It is a B&B so evening meals can easily be had in the many restaurants of Swakopmund - mostly within easy walking distance). The owner and his colleagues are friendly and helpful and can provide ideas and information on interesting things to see and do locally.
Perfect Place to Stay
Everything here was excellent from its position, overall accommodation, breakfasts and service. The owners and staff could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Many thanks to the gardener for washing our car !! Swakopmund was very busy of course and most of Windhoek were there ! The breakfasts were really good.
The drive from Helmeringhausen down the C14 was long and slow in a 2WD as the road was badly rutted so this was probably our longest day driving at 8 hours ! We were very pleased when Walvis Bay came into view.
Cornerstone Guesthouse was a pleasure to stay at and we have no hesitation in recommending this to other travellers. Would we stay there again ? Yes of course !
