Although we wanted to book a B+B room, we ended up staying at the Atlantic apartment; which was superb. The apartment has 3 bedrooms, so for the 2 of us it was incredibly spacious. It was clean and modern, and had great views over the ocean. There is a private garage for your car, and a small garden out front.
The main guesthouse was a 10 minute walk away, and this was where we checked in and had breakfast. Check-in was thorough and informative, breakfast was up to normal Namibian standards with a good cold buffet and cooked option.
The apartment is right on the seafront, but a good 15 minute walk to the town centre.
Probably the only slight down side is that both of our two nights were disturbed by noise at some point, the first night by music (possible from the beach bar, even though it's a good 500m down the coast), and the second by the neighboring apartment who seemed not to go to sleep at all.
Neither of these niggles stopped us having a great stay.
Swakopmund always felt safe at all times and is generally very tourist friendly; but do be prepared for a bit of hassle if you venture to the 'Hawkers Market'. The market had a really good range of carvings etc., but you have to haggle to avoid over paying, and with so many stalls selling similar stuff, most stall holders end up disappointed.
