Charlie's Guesthouse

Please note: Our review of this property has not yet been added. Watch this space. We're working on it.

As a tailor-made tour operator, we often have to get creative when designing your perfect itinerary.

For example, your travel consultant might add this property to your itinerary if:

Location is a significant factor
It offers a unique feature that will enhance your experience
This is a last-minute booking and room availability is limited
Cost is a factor and you'd rather splash out on another part of your trip
This is a newly opened or refurbished property that we have not inspected yet

When designing your custom itinerary we have much to consider not least of which is the value proposition of every product and service included in your quote. In all cases we strive to give you the best experience possible within your budget so please feel free to ask your travel consultant to share their reasons for including this property in your itinerary.

With only six rooms, including two family units, Charlie’s Guesthouse is an intimate affair. It’s both quiet and private, just off the main road entering into Swakopmund on the B2. It’s well located in a pleasant residential street with easy access into town and all of the main Swakopmund attractions.

Charlie Kooiman, the owner of Charlie’s Guesthouse (hence the name), fell in love with Namibia on her first visit in 2016 and now dream come reality, she can’t wait to host you at Charlie’s Guesthouse which opened its doors in December 2023. A new kid on the block, but trust us when we say, it’s a fine contender for your stay in Swakopmund.

The rooms are elegantly furnished and minimalist in feel, yet all the necessities are covered. Crisp white linens, earthy tones, premium wood and sealed screed finishes round out a modern and sleek aesthetic. All craftsmanship throughout, the work of locals. There’s a story behind each piece and one Charlie would be happy to share with you.

Book it with or without breakfast. If you opt for breakfast, you’re given a voucher to enjoy at Café Anton, Wild Rocket or Bojos Café. A little different from your run-of-the-mill breakfast buffet, but we’re all for it.

The idea at Charlie’s Guesthouse is to make you feel welcomed and at home with all the comforts to ensure a relaxed and enjoyable stay, whilst still leaving you feeling as though you are staying in a guesthouse on holiday. It’s really a delightful place and rest assured you’re well hosted here.
