The self catering unit was spacious and comfortable, however the state of the kitchen was appalling. The appliances were dirty which made me wonder what the rest if the unit. The rooms were comfortable. Getting to the unit was a challenge as there were no directions from the main guesthouse. Would not recommend driving there in the evening.

I would definitely return to Vogelstrand guest house. Great people, nice place, good food. The owners helped us to get to the best places in Swakop and gave us some great tips on places to visit nearby. I must recommend them for the food and friendliness. Nothing was too much trouble for them. They also have very good knowledge of... More

After a long drive from northern Namibia, the quiet and clean rooms at Vogelstrand were just what my aching back desired. The guesthouse is in a quiet part of Swakopmund, but just a few minutes drive from the city center. The people running the establishment (I unfortunately have forgotten their names) were very accommodating. Breakfast was very nice and served... More

A welcoming guest house, kept immaculate by Hannelie who was very helpful in booking evening meals locally. Felt it was a little expensive for what it is, but we don't have any previous experience of staying in Swakopmund. Breakfast was a little strange in that the alternative to cooked eggs and bacon was fruit/muesli/yoghurt - think this should be offered... More

The guesthouse was easy to find and close to the see and a greT restaurant The Wreck. But not neR the city center located, which was no problem for jus at all. Nice nice big room and clean, missing some chairs to sit in the room, when it is too cold to sit outside. There is fridge and a water... More

Stayed here with my family and friends over Easter. Very helpful and friendly hosts who welcomed us warmly and assisted us when needed. Great home-made fresh breakfasts. A 3 minute walk from the sea (not in view, but one can hear the rushing wind and crashing waves) with amenities for dining and activities within the vicinity and the hosts ready... More

I was here on a business trip, if I wanted to go out for dinner I was recommended best places and reservations were made for me. The one restaurant on the Pier I decided only late, but the owner made sure he got me a table even though it was packed. I managed to slip in some activities between meetings... More

My daughter and I took time out from our busy lives as guesthouse manager and airline pilot to spend time in this lovely haven. Our breakfasts were fresh and well prepared and the rooms were spotless with thoughtful touches like tea trays and a bar fridge. The linen was fesh and crisp and the rooms decorated in a lovely unfussy... More

everybody is very helpful and friendly; the rooms are a 100% clean; carparking in the court; good breakfast; excellent restaurant almost around the corner (the wreck); 1-2 minute to the beach - to make it short: nothing to complain about

I spent six nights at the Vogelstrand Guesthouse and, while I can't say I have a single complaint, I have many compliments. The location, while a few km from the center of town, offered a nice refuge to which you could retreat to either collect your thoughts or plan your next adventure in the area. Owners Hannelie and Stephen go... More
