"Great location and hospitality"

2 nights Arrived 19 Jan 2020
"Good location, easy to find, prompt acknowledgement, and secure parking. Good local advice not only about attractions, but also about safety. Provided a mobile phone with direct contact to owners.

The gardens were gorgeous, we wanted to stay longer just to enjoy the stunning garden and little patio.

Swakopmund was a good place to stay with plenty of restaurants, bars/cafes with good food and beverage service.

The breakfasts were fresh and tasty. The staff were very welcoming and prompt with their service of tea/coffee/the offer of cooked eggs.

The C35 and C34 on the way to Swakopmund had lots of road works (tarring the road) so transit times may change this year" See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Charming welcome at the Cornerstone"

3 nights Arrived 22 Sep 2019
"We stayed our first three nights in Namibia at the fully equipped 3-bed Moringa Gardens apartment in Swakopmund which was perfect for us and our adult son and daughter. Check-in at the Cornerstone Guesthouse was super-friendly and professional - even though we turned up at the same time as other guests - with offers to make restaurant reservations and book our kayaking trip, and personal escort to the apartment five minutes away. So nice to be looked after when you've had a long, long trip.

The wonderful breakfast was well worth the short walk from the apartment and we looked forward to it every day, so thank you Peter and staff. Peter is the perfect host. When I mentioned we'd not been able to watch Wales play its first Rugby World Cup match because the apartment TV didn't have a great picture, he had it fixed the same day in time to see the highlights!

The only thing that might bother some people (perhaps with larger cars than us) was a couple of tight squeezes to park in the secure garage at the apartment block." See all these reviews: 12n in Namibia
