“anytime the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

We stayed in Luderitz for 2 nights as a start for our trip up Namibia for 4 weeks and ending at Etosha. The owners were most plesant, really made it homely and helpful in telling us all the things we could do around Luderitz. The view from our room was stunning over the sea and the bedrooms were most comfortable and clen. Great - would not hesitate to recommed this place.

Friendly, clean and great friendly service by charming host (who sang and played one song on the piano at breakfast!). The best place to stay in Ludertitz which is short of good accomodation. See view from the room and a place to park outside.

We stayed at Kairos for two nights as part of an extended trip to the Richtersveld and Namibia. We had just come out of the Richtersveld where we stayed in really basic accommodation and the contrast was great! The room was wonderful - big, comfortable and clean with a fantastic view. We even managed to make a braai for dinner one evening on the outside braai - despite the howling wind! The location is great as well - parking is convenient. Very comfortable beds with lovely linen - small kitchenette in the room was very useful. Would definitely recommend this to anyone planning to stay in Luderitz.

We came here without a reservation and Christo was very helpfull. Luckily there was a cancellation. The owners are very friendly and helpfull and made us feel at home. The rooms are very clean and beautiful and the view is stunning. Sitting on the stoop looking over the ocean with sundowners.
Don't even bother looking at any other places, this one is must.........

This was a very clean place with friendly good service. The view was fantastic.
The cost was for bed and breakfast and the owners where very helpful in suggesting and booking restaurants to eat for supper. The only negative is that the owners son plays the piano and trains his voice very load in the afternoon so if you want to siesta bring earplugs with.

We stayed for two nights at the cottage at the beginning of our two week Namibia trip and of all the different B+Bs we stayed in,this was the best.Christo was the most gracious host and we where privileged to be serenaded by him for breakfast.As far as value for money is concerned,
absolutely amazing and we hope this not going to change!
The beds with crisp linen and fluffy duvets where beautiful.The fridge came in handy,as well as the little "kitchen".
Thank you,Christo.
One tip:take eye shades for the night as the streetlights outside were very bright.

Room Tip: Room 5 is great and spacious,but take eye shades for the night as the lights outside are quite brigh...

Stayed 2 nights here on a 6 week tour around Namibia.
Rooms are excellent and all have sea views from the bedroom windows or balcony.
Wifi available in room,just ask for the code..
Small kitchen area with own Tea/Coffee. Rooms are a good size and beds great.
We used to sit and have a quiet drink watching the sunset,lovely.
Owners are extremely helpful and booked restaurants and gave us several suggestions for self drive tours.
Very quiet area so traffic noise was not an issue even though we were there during 2 festivals.
There are several steep steps for those with mobility issues.
Its really a little to far to walk to town but its only a minute by car.
