Villa Vista is a stylish and modern family-run guest house situated in a quiet Windhoek neighbourhood, with the Central Business District and main town facilities just a short kilometre’s drive or walk away.

The main areas comprise a reception, lounge, and dining space with an attractive, contemporary feel. Villa Vista’s name derives from the lovely covered roof-terrace which boasts great views across the city and out towards the Khomas Hochland mountains. These views are best enjoyed at sunset with a drink from the honesty bar, or as an al fresco setting for a continental or home-cooked breakfast. There’s a lovely central courtyard with a pool, although note that it’s unheated and might be a little chilly for winter use. The Villa houses its own Cross Fit gym, offering activities such as aerobics, weight lifting, and gymnastics, at additional cost. A sauna is available free of charge to all guests, along with secure covered parking for peace of mind.

Thirteen double bedrooms surround the pool over two stories. Rooms on the ground floor have direct access to the pool via a private patio, while those above are quieter and have balconies overlooking the courtyard with superior views facing out across Windhoek. There is no lift or stair rail, so it’s best for any guest with limited mobility to request a ground floor room. All bedrooms are spacious, with ensuite bathrooms, comfortable beds, air conditioning and a good range of facilities.

Windhoek is home to the main international airport in Namibia, so it’s primarily visited as a short stop-over at the beginning or end of a self-drive trip. The Villa's attentive staff and great location close to the town’s amenities ensure a good night's rest if guests are simply passing through. If staying longer, guests can easily explore the capital from this tranquil and well located base. Cultural options include a visit to the National and Independence Museums on Robert Mugabe Avenue, and unique curio shopping at the Namibia Crafts Centre and Post Street Mall. Staff are happy to recommend and book restaurants and taxi services, and the famous Joe's Beerhouse, with its quirky and enjoyable dining experience, is only a 15-minute walk away.

While Villa Vista welcomes children of all ages, there are no cots, high chairs, or babysitting facilities. However, families travelling with slightly older children will be comfortable in the large two bed and two bath family rooms. Parental supervision is essential at all times, as the pool is unfenced and some of the higher walkways in the hotel do not have railings.

Although the ultra-modern and minimalist décor make for a somewhat corporate feel, the warm and friendly service and excellent value for money make Villa Vista an excellent option for any traveller seeking comfort and style in a convenient 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”
