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.

  • Thank you, Lisa! Our trip was wonderful even with the weather disruption. We loved seeing so many different parts of the country, meeting people and experiencing the culture. The desert was surely a highlight for our boys and the creativity and artisanship of everything from food to crafts were a highlight for me. A special shout out to our guide and driver, they became a special part of our trip and we will forever be grateful for meeting them and learning from them. I cannot believe we had to wait three years for this adventure but it was certainly worth the wait! Thanks for all your help building the itinerary, modifying it and troubleshooting during our stay.

  • Hi Lisa and everyone at Tourdust,
    We've had a wonderful time on our holiday and wanted to pass our appreciation to you. Everything has been expertly planned and executed, allowing us to enjoy the holiday to its fullest. Special appreciation to Muhammed, Ibrahim, and Omar, our Atlas guide, cook, and muleteer, who couldn't have done more for us and were just generally wonderful and hardworking. Riad Hanane is a perfect base in Marrakech to complement the trekking as it's ina less touristy area of the medina, which we appreciated. The staff and accomodation was superb.Thank you again for a trip to remember!
    Bob, May, Grace, and Lucas

  • Hello Lisa. We came back from our trip two weeks ago now so I am sending this email much later than I wanted to. Nevertheless, what I wanted to say was thank you very much for helping us organise an amazing trip. Our days in Mafia Island to celebrate my 50th birthday were exactly what I wanted them to be: a fantastic time with the family doing activities that we all love and enjoy in a relaxing, unusual, beautiful place full of sun, surrounded by water, wildlife and friendly people. We swam with whale sharks, did a lot of snorkeling, had two picnics on a beautiful sand bank, watched the sunset over the sea, did a bird watching excursion and tried scuba diving.
    All merit to you because Pole Pole in Mafia Island was your recommendation. I never heard of Mafia Island before and didn't consider Tanzania to start with. It was an amazing place to stay: friendly, relaxed, beautiful, comfortable, with great food and fantastic service. Thanks not only for finding the place but also for your patience as we prepared the trip and I explored options and decided what I wanted. All went incredibly well (places, transfers, flights) and we had a very memorable time together that we will all remember forever - as we still do the safari trip to South Africa you organised for us 5 years ago.
    I cannot wait to plan another trip! I am already thinking about where and when. Hopefully no pandemic will get in the way this time. And I will come to you as my favourite travel agent.
    I copy in this message the Tourdust office because I want them to know how good you are and how much I appreciated the different trips you organised for us (including the trip to India for my parents that was cancelled due to Covid). I cannot thank you enough :o)
    Kind regards, Carol
