Officially opened in December 2008, the guesthouse was previously used as a holiday house by the very family that runs it now. It has been completely revamped to offer seven standard rooms, seven luxury rooms and one family suite for guests wanting to indulge in a comfortable stay-over close to the ocean. The spacious rooms are fitted with crisp, white linen sheets. Wallpaper portraying a peaceful view of the ocean adds to the clean and neat atmosphere of the guesthouse. The en-suite bathrooms with soft cream walls are decorated with beach pebbles that give them a unique atmosphere.

"Definitely something very different to what Swakopmund has to offer so far, " adds Leander. The Swakopmund Guesthouse is a bed-and-breakfast facility, offering more than usual by providing guests with a scrumptious breakfast buffet, catering for more upmarket traveller, and facilities ranging from laundry services to "anything else that guests might ask for". This includes a shuttle service and wheelchair-friendly accommodation.

All rooms come complete with minibar and television.

The Swakopmund Guesthouse is run with an eco-friendly approach, making use of solar energy. It is not your conventional type of guesthouse, that's for sure.
