Organic Square Guesthouse
Organic Square Guesthouse is a neat and charming guesthouse in what is fast becoming the B&B district of Swakopmund and with good reason: a few minutes’ walk from both town and beach, you couldn’t be better situated.
More urban square-foot garden than anything organic, the name is a tad mis-leading. The décor relies on screed finishes, polished surfaces and vibrant colours offsetting a palette of industrial greys; and the eponymous square is paved and walled in with lines long and sharp.
So, having set the record straight, opt for Organic Square and you’re in for a delightful stay at an intimate owner-run guesthouse with a spacious room, a comfortable bed, a refreshing shower and excellent service all in a most convenient central location. Just don’t expect an abundance of shrubbery.
Breakfast is a simple continental affair and, again, taking the organic angle with a pinch of salt you could do far worse. Alternatively Swakopmund must have more coffee shops per capita than any other town in Africa so you might want to save space and hit the town a few blocks away. Dinner options are equally impressive with our current favourites being The Jetty, The Tug and The Brauhaus all within easy walking distance of Organic Square Guesthouse.
Bed and breakfast accommodation in single, double, triple or family rooms; all rooms en suite with either a bath or shower (be sure to specify your preference); private patio; mini bar; wi-fi; satellite TV; tea/coffee; hairdryers; breakfast room and patio; secure parking; laundry service
Walk into town and explore Swakopmund’s galleries, museums, craft markets, shops, cafés and restaurants; hit the beach and swim (if you’re immune to cold water) or walk along the miles and miles of unspoilt coastline; adventure and nature activities abound including quad bike tours of the dunes and the highly recommended living desert tours and Walvis Bay marine cruise.
