Villa Margherita

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.

Of the original building the restored wooden floorboards, brown as they are, add a touch of neutrality to an otherwise jaunty-verging-on-Art Deco, yet super modern guesthouse in the centre of Swakopmund.

Villa Margherita is small: 7 suites, 3 luxury rooms and a family unit, each decorated and fitted with impeccable taste and attention to detail. And while you’ve got a 1:1 staff to guest ratio, the service is warm, attentive and competent but never effusive.

The house is old but charming, hence the other name by which it is known - the Charming House. It's comprised of The Villa, The Nest (the family unit), The Manor and The Cottage, where each is made up of more than one suite or multiple rooms. Decor is colourful yet elegantly tasteful and speaking of taste, the menu is refined and delicious.

The guesthouse offers an a la carte menu from 7am till 9pm offering chef-standard fare and some good South African wines. Pre-book your dinner if you want to dine in, otherwise there are many dining options on your doorstep.

In the centre of Swakopmund, you are walking distance to all the main attractions including the beach, craft market, restaurants and cafés and the few oddball museums and galleries that  complement our quirky town.

The house opens onto a fairly busy street but has a secluded courtyard with a small garden in the back; the in-house massage is to-die-for and an absolute must.
