“So Happy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014

Thanks for having me at your guesthouse!

The rooms, food and location were perfect!

And the hosts Yvonne and Suzette were extremely helpful and accommodating... I will definitely be back! I am letting my family and friends know they should stay at Desert Villa when in Swakopmund!

I stayed at the Desert Villa Guesthouse during my time in Swakopmund last February. Yvonne and Suzette are great ladies that truly do their best to please you! The place is very clean and quite affordable. The staff also are very nice. Their breakfasts and diners are excellent. You really can't go wrong if you choose to sleep there! I will definitely go there again if I ever come back to Swakopmund!

We stayed here over xmas. Rooms are clean and bright, (with or without bathroom) and in the centre of swakopmund and there is a kitchen you can use There is also parking and a small garden with seating.

Yvonne and Suzette the owners are so nice and very kind, they just cannot do enough for you. They will gladly mAke you breakfast earlier than the scheduled times if you need to leave early. Suzette drove us to The Wreck restaurant on Xmas Eve and would have gladly collected us too had we let her. Yvonne gave us a flask of coffee and packed lunch all from the kindness of her heart and there were many other kind offers from both of them which we did not accept - I only hope that some people will not take too much advantage of their generousity!

I agree with the other review, it feels more like you are staying a someone's home than a guest house. They are both very friendly and give lots of advice and we would not hesitate in recommending this guest house to anyone as you will be hard pushed to find 2 kinder or more hospitable people!

We - myself and a couple - just stayed at Desert Villa in December 2013. The new owners - two very nice Namibian women - took ownership of the place in Oct. 2013, so everything there is fresh from the paint to the wonderfully fluffy towels. The women were so nice, and they really did there best to make your stay wonderful - from cooking wonderful breakfasts (they take requests and always want to make sure you go away full) to helping to book tour at a discounted price. They were always very friendly and welcoming. The feel is more like staying at a friend's house than staying at a hotel. We stayed in one room that had 4 beds and bathroom. The TV is in the common room and was often on in the evenings, but we didn't watch it. There is a kitchen nice you can use and a dinning room. They also cooked a yummy dinner at our request for a very reasonable price (actually cheaper than an place we at in town and the food was better). There is free parking, and one of the staff will wash your car for a reasonable rate if you ask. The location is also good. All three of us really enjoyed staying there, and the owners really try hard to make your stay great. We would definitely stay there again if we ever travel through Swakopmund again.

Room Tip: They have many types of room depending on how many people you want in one room and if you want your...
