“Great place to stay...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

Great people, my first stay in this Guesthouse. I fully enjoyed, clean design, unfortualty no curtains on the main window, so very difficult to run around "undressed" in your room, or while doing home work. Had to close the blinds and the room was dark. Maybe the owner finds a resolution!
Other Wiesel I enjoyed everything , will defiantly come back here. Safe garage parking.

Villa Vista is definitely the best place to stay when you visit Windhoek. It's run by the owners who are extremely nice and helpful. You get great value for money. The service is personalized. The owners help you with your travel around Namibia, recommending places, helping to make reservations. The place is very clean. The morning breakfast is fabulous. It gives you an excellent start for the day. The rooms are furnished with taste, are quite spacious and comfortable. There is an outdoor breakfast area with a great outlook. Sometimes, there are Sunday coffee and cakes which is quite nice. You get to know and talk to other guests in the guesthouse. The setting of the gusthouse is quite nice, too. You get more than you expect here. There ar self-catering rooms if you want to do your own cooking. There is a small swimming pool, a sauna and a gym. What more is needed? good food, clean, comfortable tooms, excellent people and support which makes your stay in Windhoek an enjoyable experience.

A fantastic guesthouse close to central Windhoek that we cannot recommend enough. On arrival, our agency had messed up our booking, however Koos and Fransette went out of their way to find us a room at the last minute. The rooms are clean, modern and spacious with lots of personal touches.The owners are very hospitable and made us feel very welcome. They were happy to give us lots of local tips and were very helpful. A relatively new place which probably hasn't made it into the guide books yet, but it surely won't be long. We wish them all the best with their business!

I stayed for 3 nights, and found myself unwillling to leave. Koos and Fransette really made me feel welcome. The room was great! Spacious, clean and modern. A different breakfast was served every morning, and thought the portions may look small, I found them very tasty and quite filling. The view is grand, especially at sunset. I am looking forward to be able to stay here in the future. Thank you for making this a home away from home :)

We stayed 3 nights in this nice and comfortable guesthouse during our honeymoon in Namibia .
The structure is brand new with a fashion and modern design that we loved.
Rooms are huge and bathrooms too. The owners are really friendly and helped us with suggestions, bookings and all the things we needed.
A perfect place to stay in Windhoek

Definitely not to be missed while travelling through Windhoek. Brand-new, beautiful and refreshing place, stylishly decorated with lovely details and personal touches! We had a truly restful and relaxing time. Our special thanks to Koos and Fransette, owners of Villa Vista, who made us feel truly welcome! Bedrooms are spacious and fantastically decorated. Beds are large and comfortable. Pillows and bedding are soft and fluffy. When in the morning sun was cheerfully peeking through our curtains it was hard to "crawl out and greet the day" - it was so cozy, so we just lingered-bit-longer! Mouth-watering breakfast served with finesse and imagination plus a good coffee was like a cherry on the cake in the morning! Our table was elegantly set on the large open-air veranda overlooking panorama of Windhoek. Villa Vista is conveniently located in the heart of Windhoek, near one of the main roads in the capital: just 10 min drive (including traffic) to the main shopping malls, and just a walking distance away to two popular and well-known restaurants (Kubata and Joe's Beerhouse). If I could "encapsulate" our Villa Vista experience: refreshing, stunning, elegant, intimate, restful, hope-to-visit-again, relaxing, one-of-a-kind-place, welcoming, cozy, outstanding, wow and much more!

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms have direct access to a stunning swimming pool. Top floor rooms have a balcony, j...

The title of my review says it all. I concur with all the positive things said in other reviews. Indeed, those reviews persuaded four of us attending an international conference in Windhoek to stay at the Villa Vista Guesthouse. I was there for four nights; my colleagues for five.
We were charmed by the helpfulness of the owners, Francette and Koos. On my last morning, Koos even took me in his car to a local butchery to buy biltong, a southern African delicacy that my children crave. He even had his car on stand-by should my arranged pick-up for airport transfer not arrive on time. The boyfriend of their daughter even repaired my spectacles when one of the lenses fell out and I couldn't see a thing.

Just a few details. They now have ten rooms open. All are spacious and elegantly decorated. The predominant colouring in my room was steel grey and blue - not greatly warm but very elegant. The care and attention to detail is remarkable. I liked the back-lit modern mirrors, as well as the full desk by the window overlooking a small rectangular pool. A dip in the pool was so refreshing in the 30 degs C atmospheric temperature. The wireless internet worked well and is free. Each room has a fridge stocked with a variety of drinks – but they are absolutely happy to let you store your own drinks. I could go on and repeat the comments of others. The only down-side is that Villa Vista is a little difficult to find. Few taxi drivers know of it. The guesthouse is actually situated off Robert Mugabe Avenue to the NE of the central area of Windhoek. Because it is in an elevated position, you can sit on the terrace (where incidentally breakfast is served) and overlook much of northern Windhoek. One further plus is that Villa Vista is only a short walking distance from the locally-popular Joes Beer House where we ate several times. I thoroughly recommend and only hope the owners keep their smiles and warm welcomes.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good, each with a sitting out area. But if you are on the lower level, you can hav...
