Good 6.0
Quiet, good nights sleep, far from town,m
The lodge owners were great folks. If you want a peaceful place far from town, this is your place. The comfortable beds and the high quality linens made for a great sleep. However, we did feel a bit deceived. The nice pics online are actually the managers house and you don’t have access to that part. The rooms are very standard, there is no view of the dunes from this desert oasis.

Nice, pet-friendly chalets, but water heater issue
Nice guest house about a 15-minute drive from Swakopmund. We chose it primarily because it was pet-friendly...and it was. Our dog could even accompany us to breakfast. Pets are only allowed in the self-catering chalets, however, not in the rooms in the main house. The chalets were comfortable accommodations, with one exception. Hot water is supplied by an LPG water heater, and ours wasn’t working properly. I brought this problem to the staff’s attention a couple of times. They tried to fix it, and thought they had, but it would only work temporarily. Cold showers weren’t ideal.
