About Cornerstone Guest House

Cornerstone Guest House is a small, private and peaceful bed and breakfast within easy walking distance to the sea and the town centre of Swakopmund on Namibia's fascinating Skeleton Coast. Occupying a quiet corner of Swakopmund's old town near the marine museum and the old brewery, within a few minutes from the guest house, guests can walk to beaches, cafés, restaurants, lively pubs, Swakopmund tourist attractions, and a variety of interesting shops and markets in the town.

Bed and breakfast accommodation is offered in seven double or twin rooms, each with a private entrance and patio with a table and chairs. Inside, the rooms are light, spacious and neat with tile and wood floors, beach house colours and a choice of double or twin beds.

All rooms have an en-suite bathroom with a large solar-assisted shower and modern fittings. Room facilities include a wall-mounted LCD flat-screen satellite TV, mini fridge, kettle with complimentary tea-and-coffee, outside entrance and private patio, digital safe, hairdryer, iron and ironing board on request, international wall sockets, and wireless Internet access.

The breakfast room at Cornerstone Guest House is large, light and airy. Guests can sit on the veranda on warm days or inside at individual tables. We offer an inclusive breakfast with a fresh selection of fruits, juices, yoghurts, breads, preserves, and eggs and bacon cooked to order. Wash that all down with our freshly brewed coffee or choice of tea and you'll be ready to explore the attractions of Swakopmund and the Skeleton Coast.

Facilities and services include same-day laundry service, airport transfers, a lounge area with satellite TV, private garden, secure off-street parking, activities and dining booking service, and wireless Internet throughout the guest house.

Situated on the corner of Rhode Allee and Hendrik Witbooi, Cornerstone Guest House is within earshot of the Atlantic Ocean, and just 500 m from the Marine Museum and the delightful Tug Seafood Restaurant, both overlooking the sea. We are also close to the town centre, where a safe two-minute walk takes you to several bistros, curio shops, craft markets, galleries, museums, shops and amenities.

Swakopmund is a small town with charming neo-Gothic German architecture located on the Skeleton Coast. The town is 30 km north of the port city of Walvis Bay and 70 km south of the fishing village of Henties Bay. It is an essential stopover en route north or south between Etosha and Sossusvlei.

              Peter was a fantastic host. Very friendly and knowledgeable about Swakopmund and the best places to go.The Guest House was very clean, well looked after and the rooms nice and big, with very comfortable beds. The grounds are also very beautiful.With your own access in and out of the guest house it is perfect to be able to walk to the restaurants and pubs at night.I only regret that I couldn't stay longer. I was made to feel very welcome and Swakopmund is a very charming place to visit.

              We were two couples who recently stayed at Atlantik Sicht self-catering apartment, which forms part of the Cornerstone Guest House portfolio. It was situated in a fantastic location right on the beach with a wonderful view of the sea. The flat itself is tastefully furnished and well-equipped and it is within walking distance of the centre of town.We can recommend it very highly.

              I would recommend Cornerstone to anyone staying in Swakopmund. Peter is an extremely friendly and helpful host very ably supported by all the staff. Everyone was very helpful and assisted with restaurants, tours and good information about the town. An enjoyable stay and good breakfast as well.
