Villa Margherita is a luxury boutique guesthouse in the heart of Swakopmund.
Of the original building the restored wooden floorboards, brown as they are, add a touch of neutrality to an otherwise jaunty-verging-on-Art Deco guesthouse in the centre of Swakopmund.
Villa Margherita is small: eight rooms, each decorated and fitted with impeccable taste and attention to detail. And while you’ve got a 1:1 staff to guest ratio, the service is warm, attentive and competent but never effusive.
In the centre of Swakopmund, you are walking distance to all the main attractions including the beach, craft market, restaurants and cafés and the few oddball museums and galleries that complement our quirky town.
The guesthouse offers an a la carte menu from 7am till 9pm offering pretty decent fare and some good South African wines. Pre-book your dinner if you want to dine in, otherwise there are many dining options on your doorstep offering mostly seafood and game standards.
The house opens onto a fairly busy street but has a secluded courtyard with a small garden in the back; the in-house massage is to-die-for darling and an absolute must.
Bed and breakfast accommodation in 8 double rooms; en suite bathrooms; sitting areas; satellite TV; wi-fi; safe; hairdryer; restaurant; private courtyard
Swakopmund awaits: restaurants a-plenty; the beach (though beware: the water is cold); craft markets; museums; galleries; adventure sports and day tours to the desert, the Walvis Bay lagoon, Sandwich Harbour and more... so much more.
