Brigadoon Boutique Guesthouse has an ideal location minutes from both the town centre and the sea - but nicely sheltered from said sea behind a row of apartments. A few minutes' walk gets you to the beach, the lighthouse, restaurants, cafes, pubs, museums, galleries and markets.
The old captains' house built in 1912, restored, is stunning and a part of the history of Swakopmund. Although it has been a guesthouse for years, it was fully renovated and re-opened in April 2023 by a well known lodge group in Namibia. A soul revived, it's really beautiful in it's vintage maritime style and ode to days gone by.
Inside, the 7 rooms are large with double beds (including 1 family room with a shared bathroom). With a landscaped garden at its heart, each room has a separate entrance that doubles as your own breakfast patio. You can have breakfast here or in the breakfast room, which is perhaps a better idea on the colder foggy mornings.
Most Important Meal Of The Day out the way - and thoroughly enjoyed without doubt - Swakopmund is on your doorstep. Discover the living desert, explore the Walvis Bay lagoon, drive through the Moon Landscape or play a round in one of the world's few all-grass desert golf courses complete with springbok and resident birdlife. Whatever your preference, there's a lot more to Swakopmund than a quirky seaside town.
These can be arranged on your behalf including fishing; sea cruises, kayaking; dune-climbing; paragliding; sandboarding; quadbiking; sky diving; golfing; horse riding; camel riding. Other local attractions include the national marine aquarium; Kristall gallery (just a walk around the corner); museum; markets and Oyster Bar on the pier.
