"Great stay at Villa Violet"

1 night Arrived 3 Nov 2012
"Heidi & Benoit were really friendly & helpful. Villa Violet is in a quiet location & very comfortable. It proved to be an excellent choice of accommodation for our night in Windhoek before starting out on our tour. Look out for the home made marmalade at the breakfast table!

Villa Violet is well situated for local shops and also for Joe's Beerhouse!

Highly recommended." See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia

"Villa Violet review"

1 night Arrived 21 Sep 2012
"It was easy to find Villa Violet driving from Windhoek Intl airport. It is located in good area of Windhoek.

We walked to restaurants for dinner twice & had no issues. The owners of the place will help you find the nearby places such as gas stations, shopping malls etc. Heidi helped us make a dinner reservation when we arrived which was a nice touch & allowed us to relax after long flights."

"Villa Violet is definitely a good start for a Namibia trip. It's not too far from the airport and easy to find. We arrived late in the afternoon and could easily walk to the next eating places.

The only negative is that the bathroom facilities are not well screened from the rest of the room.

They were helpful in booking a table for us at a local restaurant" See all these reviews: 14n in Namibia
