"This charming man"

1 night Arrived 11 Sep 2014
"We both liked this place very much !!! The rooms , location ,and facilities of villa violet are very good but you can get these things at a few places in Windhoek what you do not get at the other places are the two owners of villa violet
These people went out of there way to make sure we were O K We didn't fancy going out for a meal after such a long flight so they organised a fantastic dinner to be delivered while we relaxed in the garden with a beer excellent !!!!

P S the male half of this duo is French and my better half Susan says he is possibly the most charming man in Namibia ha ha" See all these reviews: 22n in Namibia; 3n in Botswana

"A warm welcome and some good advice re restaurant choice and how to get there.

A high standard of accommodation and breakfast.
