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.

  • Hi Lisa, We had a fabulous time thank you. The accommodation and other ideation were all terrific - that’s so much for your help. The apartment in Cape Town was particularly good - we would never have found that: Boschendal was great as well and game lodge was superb. Thanks again, Alistair

  • Dear Lisa
    Well, we are back and still buzzing. We have had a marvellous time. The weather helped. We left Manchester in the snow and arrived in Marrakesh at 30 degrees. We were well looked after in the Riad. I'm glad we booked a meal for the first evening - ate it on the roof terrace. We can recommend that. It was delicious. We ate at the Foundouk, as per your recommendation and on the following night we ate at Le Jardin - got lost on the way to it!. We can really recommend Le Jardin.
    The following day we went to Majorelle gardens. Fortunately we had looked it up before we travelled because you have to book in advance online only from Jan 2023. We found our own way to the Medera Ben Yousef and Latifa took us to Bahia Palace - both were stunning.
    The following morning our lovely taxi driver Mohammond collected us to go to the EcoLodge. Yet another Mohammond made us very welcome. Again we ate well! You were right, the pool was freezing, but I can't sit next to water and not get in. Once you're in you forget how cold it is! I wasn't the only person to try the pool.
    Rashid, our guide for our walk collected us. He was brilliant. It was hard work, but worth it. I was determined I would make it. Kevin is fitter than me! The Berber family were lovely. We stopped when we were nearly there to see how rag rugs were made. When we got back Rashid and Mohammond confessed that Mohammond had said to Rashid that he should get us to a road if we got too tired and they would send a taxi (or a mule!) to collect us - or me, but Rashid was sure that I'd be OK. He was right. I think they wondered about these 2 70+ year olds. We can't praise Rashid enough. He had walked over from Imlil in the morning and was going to walk back after he left us.
    Thank you so much for putting our holiday together. We never thought it would be 3 years before we went. We are so glad we persevered. We did wonder what we had let ourselves in for as 2 oldies!
    Fiona and Kevin
