"Nice location on the coast"
A very comfortable room with well equipped kitchenette and balcony with a view of the ocean.
A quiet town on the weekend with most places closed by 1:00pm on the Saturday. Still, we enjoyed a nice walk around the town following the Bradt guide book suggested walk." See all these reviews: 21n in Namibia
As a visitor we thought Island cottage was too far out of town and to be honest we didn`t think much of the town, especially when all the attractions and the best pub in town shut at the weekend.
Town seemed rundown and the beach was in a poor state, litter and broken glass everywhere." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia; 2n in Zimbabwe
It is a little far from the centre of Luderitz, restaurants etc to make walking a comfortable option.
We arrived on a Sunday, and as the guide book suggests Luderitz closes all day, so choice was limited.
The owner was most helpful, and the breakfast arrangements with Kairos Cottage next door worked well" See all these reviews: 26n in Namibia
"Island Cottage review"
As this was a self catering accommodation, there is no rating on food or service although there was an excellent breakfast place a few doors down and the reception was friendly and efficient.
It would have been a plus to have had a dining table in the condo." See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia
"Island Cottage review"
One thing to note, when we booked it said "B&B" on the voucher but Island Cottage do not offer B&B.
It didn't matter as the apartment is semi self catering and has a fridge, plates and cutlery and a hot plate. (But no cooker.) So you could prepare breakfast or light meals but would have to go out for anything more substantial. This was a perfect, unfussy apartment in an excellent location. Recommended."

"Self catering stop off"
Sea view to the right hand side now mostly blocked by the building of a large house next door. Arrived Sat pm and found only Portuguese supermarket open with limited produce. New Spar supermarket open on Sunday am saved the day!" See all these reviews: 8n in Namibia
