As others have stated, the service at this small inn is impeccable. The rooms are small, but quaint. What we really appreciated is that the staff really cares about their guests. My wife thoroughly enjoyed the cookies that were served with coffee and tea in the afternoon. Sigrid made arrangements for those cookies to be delivered to us to take... More

I stayed at Villa Violet in the pleasant Windhoek suburb of Klein (Little) Windhoek for one night on Saturday 25 May. I had booked into VV because I wanted a quiet spot for my last night in Namibia having been at a conference the previous week in the large Safari Court Hotel and then out of the capital to the...

Our room was comfy and spacious. It is the service at Villa Violet that stands out. My wife had become ill during our trip to Namibia and they wanted to help by making a special tea or anything else that we could want. Our car rental company had not supplied the promised 2nd spare tire and although when we had... More

Stayed here upon our arrival in Windhoek after overnight flight from Frankfurt. We arrived at eight in the morning and received a very warm welcome from Heidi. We were pleasantly suprised we could check in to the room already! Rooms are nicely decorated. Service is very friendly and the owners do their utmost to ensure a pleasant stay and give... More

Villa Violet is set among bushy fruit trees behind a protective wall and electrified fence, about 5 minutes drive to Joes Beerhouse (a local hotspot) and 10 minutes drive to the main highway to Etosha National Park. Freshly bakes cookies were aplenty and the kitchen was open, help-yourself style. The rooms were spacious, quiet and comfortable. Highy recommend.

We bookended our Namibian adventures with stays at Villa Violet on our first and last evenings in town. We were treated as friends rather than guests. Lovely accommodation in a quiet neighbourhood that is within easy distance of everything you need in Windhoek - including just five minutes to Joe's!

My girlfriend and I stayed here on our first night in Namibia before driving to Etosha. It was equipped with everything you may need, had great breakfast, and close to the best restaurants. I would highly recommend this place to anybody staying a night or two in Windhoek. Will definitely book there again

We spent 3 nights at the Villa in the end of February. Although I found it a bit too luxurious for a family stay, it is a home feeling place with the utmost attendance. The swimming pool is quite small for the kids but enough for cooling down after daylond trip. The location is quite convenient for runners but to... More

The location is not far from the centre of Windhoek, but it felt somewhat isolated. A local restaurant - "Joe's Beer House" - was recommended by the hosts and proved to be well worth a visit although they recommended that even though it was a mere 800 metres distant we should get a taxi if returning after dark. The room... More

Villa Violet was a great way to spend our last night in Namibia before flying out the next morning. Booking online was easy, their response via email was prompt. The grounds are very nice and secure; our room was lovely and clean with no noticeable noise. Heidi was so nice and helpful.
