1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2010

Although this is a beautiful guesthouse and the breakfasts are very nice, the couple who own this place (particularly the husband, Mac) need some serious lessons in the hospitality business. His extreme lack of hospitality, care and concern, in fact rudeness and belligerence, caused us to leave after one night of a four night reservation. He was not at all willing to help us solve our problem of not having an accessible electrical outlet near the desk in order to work. The outlet was on the other side of the room and he insisted that we use long extension cords that snaked through the bedroom and bathroom and caused us to trip over them and were dangerous. And then he yelled at me when I expressed concern and said I couldn't stay in a room that was not computer/work friendly! Don't stay here when there are so many other beautiful and friendly guesthouses in Swakopmund.
