Stayed for 2# nights & thoroughly enjoyed the accommodation & breakfast. We needed laundry doing & found it returned the following day, freshly pressed & affordable. Staff were extremely friendly & helped us where ever they could. Night time security in the car park, so felt at ease leaving the vehicle overnight. Rooms are clean, spacious & have all the...

So glad we chose the Stiltz, will definitely stay here again when visiting Swakopmund. Well thought out lovely wooden cabins with great views(especially no 7) and very comfy beds and nice big walk in shower. Lovely to feel like you are in nature but close to the town. Great breakfast with a view. Friendly staff.

To start with, Bonita was very friendly and helpful and my wife, son and I enjoyed our stay. The reason that I'm giving this place only four stars is because the WiFi needs improvement and the couches in the bungalows were very uncomfortable.

We loved the view of the Swakop River, ocean, and CAMELS :-) The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the staff very friendly. Having the rooms sit separately from one another and on stilz gives a nice sense of privacy and luxury. Absolutely loved our stay.

This is a very quirky but delightful hotel within easy walking of Swakopmund. The room we had was roomy and very clean with a view over the lagoon/sea. Staff were kind and helpful. The only thing that lets it down is the breakfast which is a little uninteresting. Worth staying there though.

After staying in nothernmost Swakopmund we found this spectacular property in southernmost part of town after a brief drive to Walvis Bay. Stiltz is truly enchanting, with its gorgeous bungalows atop stilts surrounded by trees and desert plants. Flamingoes and pelicans can be seen flying past, the ocean is within quick walking distance, and the comfy furnishings seem designed for...

Had a great few days at the Stiltz. We had plenty of time on our tour to relax around Swakopmund and the Stiltz was fantastic. No facilities for dinenr but that meant we could go around and sample the local delights. Close to everything. Great stay. Definitely reccommend eating at the Tug and also hiring bikes to ride along the...

A group of four adults, we stayed in the villa which was HUGE and had ample space for six ... spacious bedrooms (especially the 'master' upstairs) and a lovely living area. We were delighted! The location was perfect ... right on the sea overlooking the reserve, where we saw plenty of flamingos and pelicans. Delicious omelette and fresh coffee for...

Very pleasant cottages on stilts. Spacious rooms with sitting area and nice bathroom. One of the few lodges in Namibia where there are heating and electric blankets provided in winter. Good wifi in rooms. Very attentive staff. They are also willing to help you book restaurants and excursions. Good location. Good restaurants in walking distance. Delicious breakfast with fresh pancakes,...

This is a brilliant place, the lodges are wonderful and beautifully decorated and ours overlooked water that was home to lots of flamingos, pelicans and puffins. The breakfast is excellent and the whole place is built on wooden stilts with wooden walkways between. It was fantastic! There is a small car park which a lovely chap called Johnny guards at...
