Cornerstone Guesthouse review

Very friendly, helpful, clean and convenient place to stay.

Only weakness perhaps was lack of a communal area to sit in rather than in your room if you wanted to stay around The Guesthouse for anytime.

Cornerstone Guest House - very helpful owners

The owners of the Cornerstone Guest House were very helpful and friendly and the breakfast was excellent.

These travellers took a day trip to the coastal areas and Sandwich Harbour, south of Swakopmund, during their stay. Here's what they said about it:
We had a fantastic day trip to Sandwich Harbour with Turnstone Tours. Our guide, Mike, was excellent - very knowledgeable and highly entertaining.

We drove to Sandwich Harbour along the beach from Walvis Bay and returned over the high dunes - a lot of fun. We certainly recommend this trip.

A superior, family run guesthouse

A very warm welcome. Lovely owners who could not do enough to make our stay comfortable. Reliable, free Wi-Fi. Good DSTV. Mobile phone to contact owners on 24 hour call very reassuring.

Secure off-road parking and premises. Owners recommended and made restaurant reservations for us. Lovely comforatable beds and soft linen. Breakfast choice and ambience in the dining room was excellent. International wall socket was a real plus. For a guest house, this place was exceptional.

Thin walls, meant we could hear people in the next room. Variable water temperature in room 7 a bit of an issue.

Great stay at Cornerstone

Very helpful and welcoming staff who booked us dinner on both nights and confirmed our kayaking.

Room was really nice, excellent location - very close to town, and secure. Enjoyed the little balcony area.

Nice place to spend a few nights.

Well Looked after at Cornerstone

A great welcome after the long drive from Sesriem.

Cornerstone had massive rooms, a lovely garden to sit in and served us a good breakfast.

It is a five minute walk to the sea front with the The Tug restaurant and less than this to the marvellous Kucki's Pub.

Pelican Point kayaking
Excellent - Brilliant wildlife experience

This was a superb trip.

Jeanne took us out to Pelican Point early and gave a great guided tour on route: of the wildlife, salt works etc. Paddling out to the seal colony was brilliant, the sea was alive with inquisitive pups and we spent over an hour playing with them.

Jeanne took photos+video which were emailed to us before we got back to the hotel and provided us with equipment, waterproof clothes and lunch.

Good place to stay in Swakopmund

Cornerstone is a very well located guesthouse - from here it is easy to walk to all the restaurants and attractions in the centre of town.

Our room was very comfortable, and breakfast in the morning was very good. The owners were assiduous in ensuring we had everything we needed, and made restaurant reservations on our behalf - they even provided a mobile phone pre-programmed with their contact numbers.

Cornerstone Guesthouse review

This is a nice guest house quite close to the centre of town. It is quiet, with good facilities.

We were less enthused about Swakopmund, maybe because it was cold and foggy while we were there.

Pelican Point kayaking
Excellent
This was an incredible experience. I have paddled with sea lion pups before, but never in these numbers. The water was boiling with all the pups swimming and jumping beside us. I had a wide grin for the entire 2 hours of paddling!
