A charming little owner-run B&B
Ideally located for exploring the sleepy seaside town of Swakopmund
Tucked away on a street corner in a quiet residential part of Swakopmund, the Cornerstone Guesthouse boasts a wonderful location, within easy walking distance of the beach, as well as the bars, restaurants and shops of this charming seaside town.
The main property has 7 bedrooms, including family room, with guests accommodation in plenty of comfort, including en-suite bathrooms and small terraces at the front – perfect for a morning coffee before heading out to explore or lazy afternoons with a good book. The rooms are relatively small but have everything that guests would need and there is a lovely garden and indoor lounge area to compensate for the lack of space within the rooms. An airy breakfast room serves up a delicious start to the day, with the charming owners onsite to help guests plan their days, offer advice about the region and secure dining reservations at the town’s sought-after restaurants.
In addition to the guesthouse, there are also three apartments that the property owns, two that overlook the ocean and one in the centre of the town. By the sea there are a 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom property to choose from, whilst the town centre property has three bedrooms. Furnished and equipped to the highest standards, the apartments are ideal for families or groups of friends travelling together looking for their own space or an escape from the “hosted” nature of many lodges in Namibia. Guests at the apartment are able to self-cater, with breakfast also available at Cornerstone as well.
Whilst most visitors to Swakopmund will have their days out and activities planned in advance, it is possible to book these locally, although availability is severely limited, especially in the busier winter months. The hosts are able to help book any activities and plan days out, as well as provide picnic lunches for longer day trips and packed breakfasts for those departing early on the next leg of their adventure.
