We stayed in this guesthouse on our last night after a 41 day driving tour. It was a great place to stop, regroup and unwind before leaving that part of Africa. The guesthouse has a modern decorating theme and everything worked including air conditioning. That is a real plus in this part of Africa. I had a relaxing sit by...

We spent our first night in Namibia at Villa Violet and found it perfect. The owners are both professional and friendly, the rooms were comfortable and immaculate, breakfast superb. There is an honesty bar you can help yourself to, and a tiny swimming pool which we couldn't use on account of the cold weather. All in all, we loved it!
