"Cornerstone Guesthouse review"

2 nights Arrived 5 Jun 2011
"Peter was very welcoming and helpful. The location just 5 minutes from the centre of town was perfect. Our room had its own lounge and kitchen and was very comfortable. Peter booked our restaurants for us and really looked after us, he was so obliging even letting us leave our luggage in the room until we returned from kayaking at 1 o'c the day we left. Lovely breakfast.

There is so much to do around here we wished we had stayed at least another night." See all these reviews: 25n in Namibia

"Very comfortable and perfect location."

2 nights Arrived 22 Nov 2010
"A small, spotless guesthouse with a modern, unfussy style.

Room was light, airy and spacious. House boasts a pretty little garden. Owners were away and temporary host, Monica, could not have been more helpful. Staff also very attentive. Excellent breakfast.

Would recommend to those looking for a quiet location almost in the heart of town and well placed for restaurants, stores, the beachfront and general exploring.

Whilst here, we arranged a morning kayaking at Pelican Point for this traveller. She commented:

This was definately one of the highlights of the trip.

Jeanne is an outstanding guide and clearly knows and loves the area. The salt water pools in amazing colours (green and pink) were extraordinary, the bay beautiful and we saw flamingo, jackals and of course 100s of seals. The Kayaking was fabulous and the whole trip perfectly organised from the clothing/equipment provided, instruction provided and commentary to the welcome and warming hot coffee and picnic provided at the end.

Anyone visiting Walvis Bay must do this trip!" See all these reviews: 2n in Namibia

"Cornerstone Guesthouse"

2 nights Arrived 27 Sep 2010
"Very easy walking distance to shops, restaurants and the sea. We arrived at lunchtime and had half a day to see Swakopmund, which is just about enough. Some good restaurants to chose from but booking is advisable.

The day trip with Turnstone Tours down to Sandwich Bay was superb. It was just us with the very knowledgable guide.
I could easily have done another night in Swakopmund and taken another day-trip inland with Turnstones, or maybe kayaking etc.

NB for Cornerstones - would have liked the milk, tea and coffee replenished in the room." See all these reviews: 15n in Namibia

"Good central location. Very helpful owners.

A good place for a break in between long drives.

From Swakopmund, Expert Africa organised a day-trip to Sandwich Harbour for these travellers. They commented:

This is an excellent trip, particularly for someone keen on birds, but also for anyone interested in extraordinary scenery and wildlife.
Ernst was a very informative and friendly driver/guide. As well as the birds we saw lots of jackal and learned a lot about the issues facing the area..

Driving over the dunes was quite an experience.

A very nice lunch was provided, although it didn't quite match the sumptuous feast which I'd imagined, having read previous reviews.
Highly recommended." See all these reviews: 18n in Namibia
