Villa Violet is a pleasant and modest guest house located at 48 Ziegler Street in a quiet, residential neighbourhood of Windhoek. The location provides guests with a peaceful and convenient stop-over in the capital, ideal for connecting with international flights, and only a short drive from town centre conveniences.

This charming B&B is set on a small, walled lot, providing security and seclusion, with secure parking behind electronic gates. The main buildings surround a picturesque courtyard and garden with a small pool and sun loungers. Inside, it is brightly but simply decorated, with a cosy lounge containing cheerful furnishings and pleasant features. In the morning, a buffet-style continental breakfast is served in the well-lit dining room, and whilst no evening meals are offered, there is an open plan kitchen area for self-service catering, complete with honesty bar, and an outdoor BBQ area for those who wish to rustle something up in the sun. Villa Violet’s owners are also more than happy to recommend and book any of the fabulous restaurants nearby, and guests are welcome to use the dining room when ordering in. Complimentary tea and coffee is served throughout the day and friendly and efficient staff offer professional yet warm service.

The bedrooms have a clean and comfortable feel with simple, contemporary and elegant decor. There are just 5 ensuite rooms, each equipped with double or twin beds. All rooms give onto the central garden and come complete with air conditioning, flat-screen TV, safe, and complimentary WiFi. Laundry and room services are available at additional cost.

Windhoek's primary draw as a location is as an international entry point to Namibia. The town is the economic and cultural centre of the country, and as such, provides facilities to satisfy every modern convenience, including supermarkets, pharmacies, banks, petrol stations, and ATMs. The villa’s proximity to these amenities allows guests to stock up with essentials before beginning self-drive exploration into sparser territories. There are some cultural activities available in the city for guests with a little more time, including the National and Independence Museums on Robert Mugabe Avenue, which provide fascinating insights into the indigenous and colonial histories of this relatively new country. Stores and curio vendors at the Namibia Crafts Centre and Post Street Mall provide some unique shopping opportunities, and restaurants near to the villa offer fantastic culinary experiences, including the famous Joe's Beerhouse.

There are no age restrictions at Villa Violet, and families are welcome. Although there are no specific family rooms, cots can be provided on request. Note that the pool is unfenced, so parental supervision is recommended at all times.

Villa Violet is a simple, pristine and welcoming guesthouse offering fantastic service and a superb central Windhoek location.

  • Trip was great and all the arrangements were excellent so thank you for all the help!

    Drivers and transfers were all good - on time and very good service on each trip.

    Accommodation was lovely - Douar Samra was amazing (weather could have been better but lovely regardless). Riad in Marrakesh was also great!

    All in all a great trip and we loved the variety of the mountains, Marrakesh and the coast.

    Thanks you once again!

  • I was also just about to email you to thank you and the team for arranging yet again, another wonderful experience.

    Mount Kenya was spectacular and wild - I think I prefer it to Kili in many ways. The entire support team was professional, friendly and all round fantastic in making sure that we were safe, well fed and well looked after. In particular, we would commend Peter the guide as well as Paul one of the porters who doubled-up as his deputy on summit day. Our route was often shrouded in mist and rain that rapidly gathered in the valleys and moorlands, and we were very impressed at how Peter managed to navigate us safely through all of that notwithstanding. In addition, we loved learning about the history of Mount Kenya from him in the evenings. And ofcourse, I was blown away by the lovely birthday surprise at the end complete with balloons and a delicious cake that had journeyed with us from day 1. One thing we might recommend because of the sudden change in weather (it would sometimes get extremely cold and wet) is for the equipment list to be a little bit more detailed in terms of its recommendations e.g. layers to be moisture-wicking, walking boots be waterproof, doubling up on socks to avoid blisters etc.

    El Karama is a beautiful conservancy and the lodge a true labour of love. Great hospitality in a relaxed environment. Delicious, fresh food. We enjoyed the drives, even if we didn't see much wildlife as the heavens opened on us for the last two outings. However, since it was very much geared towards families, I am not sure if I would stay again without kids. That said, I think it was perfect for a 3d/2n stay post mountain, and a much better choice than flying to the masai mara given the limited time we had.

    Our transits were smooth. Samuel the driver was always on time, drove safely and kept the vehicle clean.

    So it was a brilliant experience and one which I certainly will cherish for some time to come. It was great to work with you for a third time, and I certainly hope it won't be the last

  • Thank you, we had an absolute wonderful time, and everything was well-planned and as described. Carla was crying on the day of our departure from Ants Nest, she didn’t want to go home and for it all to end, and when I asked how much longer she would want to stay, she responded “four weeks”
