Stayed here with my family and friends over Easter. Very helpful and friendly hosts who welcomed us warmly and assisted us when needed. Great home-made fresh breakfasts. A 3 minute walk from the sea (not in view, but one can hear the rushing wind and crashing waves) with amenities for dining and activities within the vicinity and the hosts ready to vouche their recommendations. A serene stay, though was hoping for self-catering facilities (which are not available, one has to eat out).
Vogelstrand Guesthouse is an intimate owner managed bed and breakfast guesthouse situated in Vogelstrand, Swakopmund. Hannelie is a native Swakopmunder and her hosting specialty combines perfectly with Stephen's culinary skills! We have purposely limited our establishment to 8 rooms to enable us to give premium attention to our guests. Each room has its own entrance.
We guarantee outstanding personal service set against a backdrop of spacious individually designed rooms. Enjoy a feeling of privacy but also incredible space, peace and tranquility. The extra mile is a vast, unpopulated wasteland - most people who go there think, "Wait... no one else is here... why am I doing this?" and leave, never to return. However, for us this is a familiar territory. We thrive in the extra mile. We make the extra phone call, stay up extra late, get up extra early, make sure the coffee is extra hot and the juice extra cold! Anything possible to make your stay extra special!
Time is often the only limitation to experiencing Swakopmund. We will be happy to assist you in planning your activities.
We are happy to add a 3 x bedroom self-catering apartment to our accommodation options in Swakopmund. Click on the link in our menu to check availability and visit our galary for pictures.
I was here on a business trip, if I wanted to go out for dinner I was recommended best places and reservations were made for me. The one restaurant on the Pier I decided only late, but the owner made sure he got me a table even though it was packed. I managed to slip in some activities between meetings and once again all bookings were done for me. The people he recommended for these were very good, as if they knew they had to do something special for me. I definitely will go back but with my family and use their awesome family apartment. The owners were very helpful and friendly. It is rare to have this sort of place and I would recommend it for anyone, business or otherwise. I look forward to visiting again.

My daughter and I took time out from our busy lives as guesthouse manager and airline pilot to spend time in this lovely haven. Our breakfasts were fresh and well prepared and the rooms were spotless with thoughtful touches like tea trays and a bar fridge. The linen was fresh and crisp and the rooms decorated in a lovely unfussy and classy style. The shower was spacious and the shower head generous while in keeping with the water conservation that is paramount in this area. If there was one tiny improvement it would be that a hairdryer be supplied.
Everybody is very helpful and friendly; the rooms are a 100% clean; carparking in the court; good breakfast; excellent restaurant almost around the corner (the wreck); 1-2 minute to the beach - to make it short: nothing to complain about.
