Villa Violet is the new guesthouse in the building that used to house the "Elegant Bed & Breakfast", and is popular choice for a relaxing and cosy stay in Windhoek. With new owners and management it was taken over and renamed in July 2011. Since then it has been refurbished and looks better than ever.

Villa Violet is situated in the suburb of Klein Windhoek, just a five minutes' drive from the city's central business district. It's a simple, though friendly and comfortable lodge and an ideal base for an over-night stay in Windhoek.

Since the change of name and ownership, none of the team at Expert Africa has had a chance to visit, but this is what we know about the guest house:

Villa Violet has five double bedrooms, decorated in a contemporary style with various shades of purple and violet. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms with showers, air-conditioning and a safe for personal belongings. There's a five channel TV in every room, as well as a telephone and free wireless internet access.

Central facilities include a lounge with TV, DVD and VCR player, and a small collection of books. In the morning, a healthy breakfast buffet is served in the dining room, and the guesthouse has an open-plan kitchen and a barbeque area for self-catering purposes. A veranda leads into the lovely garden, where you will find a small swimming pool and several sun loungers. For self-drive guests, secure parking is possible on the lodge's property.
