Sea Breeze Guesthouse: Our full report

Sea Breeze Guesthouse is situated near to the beach, in the north of Swakopmund.

It’s a peaceful and comfortable place to stay in a quiet residential area.

The friendly owners of Sea Breeze, Bennie and Charlot, have paid great attention to detail and each of the twelve rooms is individually and tastefully decorated in a different style. Local artwork adorns the brightly coloured walls and all rooms offer tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, safes and universal plugs. Some also have a television, but there's also one in the lounge.

Along with different décor comes a different arrangement for each room. All have en-suite bathrooms, but some come with a bath, some with a shower, and some with both bath and shower. The honeymoon suite has a larger bathroom than the other rooms, with a stand-alone bath where guests can request champagne. Four of the rooms are larger family rooms, which double as self-catering units, as each has a kitchenette with a stove, microwave, fridge, freezer and toaster.

Despite the name, the rooms at Sea Breeze either have a view of the garden or of the street. Unfortunately the sea views have all but disappeared as more and more buildings have sprung up between the guesthouse and the coast. On the plus side, some of the ground-floor rooms open out onto the verdant garden, with a table and chairs allowing you to sit out, and other rooms have their own seating areas around the property.

On the first floor, the breakfast room and lounge make up the communal area at Sea Breeze, with a balcony where guests may opt to eat on fine mornings. There’s a satellite TV in the lounge, along with free internet in reception, and there’s WiFi in the rooms. The guesthouse offers a secure parking area.

One of the owners will often sit down with you as you check in and help to plan your stay. They can recommend and book local restaurants and activities, including desert trips, kayaking, quadbiking and trips to Sandwich Harbour. (NB: It's essential that you read the Quadbike warning in the 'Health & Safety' section below for our comments on insurance issues regarding this activity.)

Our view

Although some might prefer to be closer to the centre of town, the delightful Sea Breeze Guesthouse is a cosy place to stay for exploring Swakopmund and its surroundings. It is very clean and well looked after, and its brightly coloured rooms and equally bright and friendly hosts made us feel at home.
