It was big enough for all our overland traveling equipment and multiple bags. The bathroom is also large and the whole apartment is spotlessly clean. We used the cooking facilities which were adequate and... More

This is a nice apartment with all amenities and very spacious. A bit of a walk from the town but as it is next to the sea quite pleasant. Hosts very accommodating and friendly. Across the road from a complex with restaurants so no need to cook. It had all I needed and would stay there again.

Friendly host and staff, lovely apartment and well equipped. Property was secure, comfortable and with good WiFi. Location was nice, very short walk from the beach and only 20 mins to town. We would recommend Sandcastle.

We stayed for four nights and found our accommodation to be very clean and comfortable. There was lots of hot water, and we had fast free wifi. The owner Silke was very helpful and attentive to our needs. A great stop over.

We enjoyed the comfortable stay at this B&B, especially the way in which we were welcomed and assisted by management. We really felt at home. The advice given by the proprietor was very useful and courteous, from advising on what to see as well as on medical issues.

Great welcome, super clean rooms, and very nice location. All in all, the perfect place to spend a few days in Swakopmund. One minor suggestion would be for a bigger bin to be put into the rooms, as ours was very small. Other than that, everything was great.
