    Cute guesthouse by the water, nicely furnished with friendly staff. Would be nice to have a cattle (coffee/tea station) in the room and in all fairness a sign saying "if you love it, lock it away" doesn't make you feel too comfortable and safe.

    Our small group stayed here. Good breakfast, comfortable rooms, and walking distance to the 2 best restaurants in Walvis Bay. The cheapest rooms don't have much ventilation or a view. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

    Worst place ever. Will never recommend it to anyone, business or pleasure. Unfriendly and uneducated staff. Worst food. Not even breakfast is commendable. Unbelievably highly priced for dirty room and fowl bathroom. Disappointed and will never go there again. Disgusted in the owner!
