A stylish and comfortable bed and breakfast in Windhoek’s quiet residential suburb of Klein Windhoek, Villa Violet is a welcoming, convenient and affordable base for those setting off on a Namibian adventure. The rooms give onto a tranquil courtyard and a leafy garden with a small swimming pool, ideal for relaxing on hot afternoons, and there is excellent security with safe off-road parking. Close to several restaurants, the guest house is a short drive from the city centre and the helpful and friendly owners are happy to make reservations and advise on plans for your stay in Windhoek.
Just five en-suite rooms open onto a private patio furnished with comfortable chairs and table looking out over the grassy central area. Tastefully decorated with simple contemporary elegance, flowing gauzy curtains, attractive art works and a light and airy feel, the rooms have all the modern conveniences of air-conditioning, heating, a flat screen TV, in room safe and, best of all and not to be taken for granted in Africa, reliable free wi-fi.
Plentiful breakfasts are served in the bright breakfast room, including fresh home-made breads, home-made marmalades and jams, cereals and fruits, cold meats and cheese and a hot cooked breakfast made to order.
The kitchen is open day and night for guests to help themselves to tea and coffee and home-made cookies whenever they wish and there is an honesty bar for soft drinks and snacks. Lunches and dinners can be found in the nearby cafes and restaurants of this upmarket suburb and the owners and manager are always helpful with recommendations.
The comfortable lounge has a CD player and plenty of books for guests to browse through, and there are plenty of enticing corners in the shady garden and on the verandah and deck to relax over a cup of coffee and unwind after a long journey.
The excellent service and warm welcome makes Villa Violet a home from home for its guests and its central but peaceful location close to the main freeways is ideal for independent travellers before and after a safari or self-drive tour of Namibia.
