"Convenient, attractive, guest house"

1 night Arrived 4 Sep 2018
"We thought this an attractive, neat, friendly guesthouse with plenty of shaded sitting out areas and a nice guest lounge. It was easy to find from the airport and easy to reach the B1 the following day.

We opted for reception’s recommendation of finding an evening meal at Joe’s Pub which they kindly booked and was about 15 mins walking distance away and found it a very good choice.

The beds were comfortable and our only minor problem was that we struggled to find the ceiling light switch in our first room and couldn’t then turn them off completely.

Also, Heidi prepared grapefruit for our breakfast which we couldn't eat (because, for some reason, it interferes with a course of statins), so it might be better for guests to help themselves. Having said that the staff could not have been more helpful." See all these reviews: 11n in Namibia

"Comfortable start to our trip"

1 night Arrived 2 Sep 2018
"The villa is in a quiet location, easily accessed from the airport road and close to the famous Joe's Beerhouse for your evening meal and introduction to Namibia's cuisine.

The room was quite small, but adequate after an overnight flight. The bed was comfortable! There is a very pleasant guest area, with tea and coffee always available.

We expect that most people just pass through, like us, and this guesthouse does all that is required for that purpose." See all these reviews: 16n in Namibia; 4n in Botswana
