we stayed here coming in from damaraland (we visited Swakopmund already 8 years ago, but what a change it has gone through since then, from a small seaside town to what it is now, of course it has lost a bit of his charm..), we stopped on our way at cape cross to see the seals, but realized later that...

Wat a pity we only spent one night here and had no time at all to enjoy it more!

The Stiltz is probably unique in the world at least I have never seen anything like it. All houses are actually built on 5m high stilts (hence the name) and the houses are connected by walkways, guess what... also on stilts. My wife and me traveled together with my parents so we took the family charlet. It is actually made...

The Stiltz is something that you cannot describe but that you have to live. Ideal location, close to the beach and a 5min footwalk to Swakopmund downtown. Very nice and helpful staff. Rooms in a very cosy outfit and everything that you need to chill out after a long drive.

As the name suggests, the rooms are built on stilts - quite high stilts, at that! Great fun, particularly if it's windy, as it was when we were there, when you can feel your whole room swaying! The rooms are comfortable, and the hotel is within a short walk of the centre of Swakopmund; that said, we used the local...

After an 8 hours drive from Damaraland this place was just what we needed. Beside the sea with the waves and wind to revive you and really down to earth and friendly staff to welcome us it was great set up. Each cabin has a feeling of its own little world and the walkways joining the cabins add a great...

Stayed here for 3 nights in one of the 'seaview rooms (6,7,8). We choose this place for its small number of rooms and unusual stilled construction as something different . We had room 8 which was OK but think room 7 has the best views of both sea and lagoon and is the least overlooked. Initally I wanted to leave...

I enjoyed my stay, nice set up with the cabins and walkways. No problems with noise (we were in the middle of the walkway). The staff were very helpfull, probably the freindliest we met in our Namibia trip. The room was all wood columns and thatch. Nothing wrong, but I think that they could do with a redecortion.

The Stiltz villa is well kitted out, comprising of 3 rooms and a large lounge area. The facilities are good, and each bed has an electric blanket which is needed as the room is quite cool. It is located at the edge of Swakopmund boasting great views of the ocean and the river. The breakfasts are of good quality. I...
