The Olive Grove Guest house is a well-established, calm, comfortable and friendly guesthouse on a quiet street in Windhoek’s upmarket suburb of Klein-Windhoek. Ideally located for a tranquil stopover before or after a Namibian safari, it’s a short drive or a half hour walk from the city centre and its main attractions, and has secure off-street parking shaded by a beautiful jacaranda tree. Relaxing afternoons can be spent lounging in the courtyard by the small swimming pool or book a massage in the wellness room to soothe away travel stress, before a light lunch on the terrace.
Small and intimate with just eleven en-suite rooms, the Olive Grove has been styled with simple rustic elegance that verges on modern minimalism but includes all the comforts. The very comfortable big beds are made up in pure cotton with down duvets and textured cushions and throws for colour and interest, with Moroccan lamps providing atmospheric lighting.
Rooms are well equipped with air-conditioning, heating and in-room safes, as well as satellite TV, mini-bar and tea and coffee facilities with the tempting addition of home-made biscuits. Ensuite bathrooms have huge tubs and showers in natural stone concrete for monumental rustic effect. The upstairs luxury rooms have private patio areas and are spacious enough to accommodate extra beds for families travelling with children. There is also a very roomy Executive suite with a private lounge.
The guesthouse’s comfortable lounge and dining area connect with the open kitchen, where delicious meals are concocted by the chef. Lavish breakfasts with plenty of choice, including freshly cooked hot dishes, are served on the terrace in summer, with an all day light lunch menu and a select à la carte dinner menu. Guests can also visit the next door sister establishment, Olive Exclusive restaurant for an evening meal and the helpful staff are happy to make recommendations and bookings for eating out in the town.
If you are looking for simple, value for money luxury in Windhoek combined with a warm welcome and a tranquil atmosphere, the Olive Grove Guesthouse is a good choice.
