The delightfulSea Breeze Guesthouse is situated just outside Swakopmund, near to the beach and is a peaceful and comfortable place to stay in a quiet residential area.

Sea Breeze offers five rooms, and four self catering flats. The friendly owners of the lodge, Bennie and Charlot, have a great attention to detail and every room is individually decorated in different styles and named after a precious stone, such as amethyst and opal. Local artwork adorns the brightly coloured walls and all rooms offer tea and coffee facilities, hairdryers, safes and universal plugs. Some rooms also have a television, but there's also one in the lounge. The arrangement of each rooms is different, and although they call come with en-suite bathrooms, some come with a bath, some with a shower and some with a bath and a shower. The honeymoon suite has a larger bathroom than other rooms, with a standalone bath where guests can request champagne. The self catering flats all offer kitchenettes with a stove, microwave, fridge, freezer, and a toaster.

The rooms here either have a sea view from the balcony or a garden or street view. Sea Breeze's sea view is unfortunately disappearing as more and more buildings are appearing on the beach.

The breakfast room and lounge make up the communal area at Sea Breeze, both of which are on the first floor. The breakfast in this place is delicious and consists of fresh fruit salad, bread, cold meats, and a champagne breakfast can be arranged if you wish to really celebrate. Guests can also opt to eat on the balcony. Free internet is available in reception, or guests can use WiFi in the rooms. The guesthouse offers a secure parking area.

Bennie and Charlot can book any local restaurants for you and help you to plan and book local activities, including desert trips, kayaking, quad biking 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.)
