They do not necessarily represent the views of Expert Africa.
Wonderful views from the spacious and comfortable flat overlooking the beach. A very good breakfast arrived on trays from the main house.
Margaret was an attentive hostess, finding us a table at the Lighthouse when we were unable to get a booking at the Tug.
Swakop is busy aand lots of people eat out so booking ahead is well advised.
Very very friendly people. Even baby sat a sick child that had started to vomit just before Turnstone tours loaded us up and what's more the child in question had a fantastic day.
Very proactively going out of there way to organise anything you needed.
Great to have this pit stop with washing machine in kitchen and be able to do a bit of cooking for yourself with groceries from major grocery store just around the corner.
Day trip to desert coast south of Swakopmund: Great to be able to ask lots of questions about living in Namibia and they were excellent at tailoring a trip to our group.
Kayaking to Pelican Point: Lovely enthusiastic guide. We did not take our kids but it would have been fantastic for all our kids ages 4,6,8.
Odd smell in the rooms?Read more about the whole trip
Lots of space in the apartment, a good view of the beach and clean with decent facilities like a much-welcomed washing machine.Read more about the whole trip
Swawkopmund was cold and bleak when we arrived and the room felt cold, good value for a B&B with a helpful proprietor.
The kayak trip at Walvis Bay was fantastic and I am so glad we booked this in advance, it was in many ways one of the highlights of the trip.
Morning kayaking excursion - The kayak trip at Walvis Bay was fantastic and I am so glad we booked this in advance, it was in many ways one of the highlights of the trip.
Our children's favourite place!
This was one of our highlights of the holiday, the staff were incredibly helpful, especially Margaret in booking our Living Desert Tour, lending us sand boards and giving us directions on where & how to use them, as well as recommendations (tried and liked) for restaurants! She was also really helpful when we were trying to find a Nissan garage to replace our lost hub-cap (unsuccessfully)!
It was wonderful to have the independence of a self-contained appartment. The voucher sent to us to confirm our booking stated we were on a B&B basis - but it was self-catering. This was fine. It just would have been nice to know before we arrived. The kids loved the apartment and the freedom to roam around the rooms playing or watching DSTV. It was also nice not to have to get up for breakfast for an allotted time. It was very clean, well decorated and well equipped. The opportunity to do our washing and to dry it was great! The location was close enough to the beach and town centre to walk in a few minutes, but in a residential area and so quiet. We think our kids liked this accommodation the most.
We had read a rather unflattering review of Brigadoon, but we found it fine. The rooms were perfectly adequate, very clean if not luxurious.
The breakfast was good, served outside the room in the small garden, which was a very pleasant green space after the desert.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was nice and central and we would certainly stay there again.
Everything was OK, just that everywhere else was so much better.
The mini 4x4 tour to Sandwich Harbour (run by the guy that owns the ballooning operation in Soussevlei) was great fun.
