A very relaxing quiet place, with a fantastic special exterior and interior. Excelent service and good food. Only minus is the road condition from the main road to the lodge. Wifi Ok and a nice pool to relax by. 4,5 Star in our rating.

My husband and I stayed at the Elegant Farmstead for one night on our first night in Namibia. The location was perfect for our first stop- a short drive from Windhoek after a long two days of flights from the US, and a reasonable drive the next day to Etosha. The property was beautiful, and we even saw some wildlife... More

Elegant farmstead is a lovely place which is located close to windhoek and offers a relaxing and natural atmosphere. The food was lovely, and well cooked and always different, the sundowner game drive is a must do where you drive around see different species of animals and have a cold beverage, biltong and snacks watching the sun set on a...

Elegant Farmstead was a very enjoyable and relaxing place to end our wonderful holiday in Namibia. Our comfortable room overlooked a dried up river bed where baboons, warthogs and various antelope wandered by. The meals were good and we enjoyed afternoon tea with lovely home-made cakes. Katja and Paul, our hosts, were excellent. We enjoyed a superb sundowner game drive... More

That was our first night in Namibia after a long trip from France through South Africa during which we had almost lost our luggage! Direction Okahandja, and then 40 km of a painful gravel road, before reaching destination. The place is very nice, the rooms are clean, comfortable and modern, the food is very nice and well balanced, but the... More

What a relaxed stay!! Rooms are simple yet comfortable. There are plenty of sitting areas to have a drink and relax. Dinner was amazing, both evenings! Breakfast was also good! Would definitely go again!

What a great place to stay after long flight from London to Windhoek via Johannesburg then the enjoyment of 'gravel' road of 27km. We returned after spending just one night previously on our first trip to Namibia in 2011 and could not wait to return.This time our great hosts Paul [James] and Katja were just fantastic and it was worthwhile.

I would like to thank you for your service and kindness during our ladies week-end. Gwen ( the manager on duty ) was absolutely fabulous, service was very attentive! We had lots of fun and will definitely come back. The rooms are nice and the country side style food was really good. You also have a nice wine choice :-)

The place have mediocre rooms and the whole farm is a bit decadent. The food is really poor and we went to bed hungry after the same salad for lunch and dinner. The food was included and felt "cheap", nothing special and the chef have no idea what cooking could be like(boring/dull ingredients/tasteless). When telling the management about the food... More
