The eight en-suite rooms are beautifully furnished, and meets your needs for a relaxing getaway. The name Driftwood, can be seen throughout the decor of the rooms and the main building. Come enjoy a hearty breakfast, comfortable bed and a stroll on the nearby beach. The town centre is a few minutes drive from us, and many activities can be booked by our capable receptionist.

We were here only one night, but they managed to get laundry done for us. Our room was clean and light. It was too cold to sit out in the nice garden seating area, alas. Breakfast was good. It was about a 30 minute walk from the main town shopping area along the beachfront. The decor makes clever use of natural and repurposed items.

We have booked 3 Nights and added one more! No need to tell more! 😉 Only some Noise in the Morning (Transportation Company in the Neighborhood) is a little disturbing! Better to book a room with garden view!

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst on a tour of Namibia and thought it was a fantastic boutique place to stay. It's set a little bit outside of Swakopmund and within a short walk over the road to the sea/beach. The staff are very friendly and attentive, the guesthouse itself is stunningly decorated in driftwood art and sculptures and the room itself is clean, comfortable and very cost with hot water bottles provided as the temperature is very different here than in other parts of the country. Very enjoyable stay, we would definitely recommend it.

Thank you for your kind review. We are happy to hear that everything was to your liking. Swakopmund (and the rest of the Namibian coastline), usually is colder than the rest of Namibia, and even through out the year cold conditions can be expected. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your Namibian holiday
