Cornerstone Guesthouse, Swakopmund

Wonderfully small and private, the Cornerstone Guesthouse occupies a quiet corner of Swakopmund’s old town, within walking distance of pretty beaches, lively cafes and restaurants.

Striking the perfect balance between the personalised charm of a family-run B&B and the modern comforts of a high-end hotel, the Cornerstone Guesthouse is a superb spot from which to experience the delights of Swakopmund and the Skeleton Coast. The sea is just a stone’s throw away, and you can take advantage of a variety of activities that include quad-biking, dolphin watching and scenic flights over the beautiful desert and coastal landscape. Otherwise, visits to the Swakopmund Museum or Kristall Galerie are a great way to spend some time. 

Accommodation is made up of seven light and spacious bedrooms, including two family rooms. Each has its own private patio where you can relax with a book overlooking the property’s tranquil garden. The property also boasts three luxurious self-catering apartments on the seafront that are perfect for larger groups. Breakfasts are generous and incorporate an array of fresh fruit, juices, yoghurts and breads. For lunch and dinner, Cornerstone can recommend the best restaurants in town.
