Villa Violet Guesthouse
With just eight rooms, you'll be lucky to get a booking at Villa Violet - one of the top rated B&B guesthouses in Windhoek, Namibia's capital.
If you are lucky enough to get a booking, you'll see why this small guesthouse is so popular: Ben and Heidi, with years of hospitality industry experience between them and speaking English, German, French and Flemish/Afrikaans, are the consummate hosts. With contagious enthusiasm, they have made Villa Violet into the very definition of a bed and breakfast guesthouse where you get a personal welcome from the owners, friendly and intimate service and exceptional value for money.
Villa Violet is a smart and attractive guesthouse tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood of northern Windhoek and is a great place to start or end your safari or self-drive holiday in Namibia. You will easily find Villa Violet coming from the airport; it is close to the central areas of Windhoek; and you are within stumbling distance from the legendary eisbein and stein of Joe's Beerhouse.
The rooms at Villa Violet open onto the patio and garden, making an ideal spot to relax and read a book or have a cup of tea while you chat with Ben and Heidi. Rinse your travel-weary bones in the swimming pool or retreat to the your air conditioned room with a book from the small library.
The décor as simple, elegant and modern with hotel-like amenities including wireless internet, flat-screen cable TV, climate control, tea/coffee, personal safe, honour bar and hair dryers.
If you are looking for a warm welcome, genuine hospitality, convenience and comfort, we cannot recommend Villa Violet highly enough: we have yet to have an unhappy customer and, so long as Ben and Heidi are at the helm, we doubt we ever will.
