Great location
Great location on the beach. It was very fresh - we could hear the waves crashing and the air was fresh and salty - a very magical place. The hut was next to some pools with flamingos.

I can't say enough about this place. I was on a long trip and at first was sad there was no TV. But the window facing out to the desert, I've never had such a beautiful or amazing view in my life. I can't remember what type of room i had to book for that view, but book it. I sat on my bed, and watched the flamingos in the river. I watched the sand dunes. The cars in the desert. The locals walking their dogs as they chased the migratory birds. I've traveled all over the world, and the view from my bed in this place, is one of the most magical experiences

Lovely location. Lodges have all you need for an overnight and breakfast. Walk to town. Provision of blankets and heaters appreciated as it was cold when we visited.

Unique Accommodation
The Stiltz is currently the most prestigious and exciting accommodation in Swakopmund. Located at the quiet end of town and built next to the sea it offers breathtaking views and up-market comfort. The idea of accommodation on stilits is not new but mostly found in Asian travel destinations. To re-enact such a set-up in Namibia is gutsy but will pay out in the long run as guests will come to appreciate the distance to your neighbours and the unique views from the units. The interior of the double-storey "Villa" is functional and tries to blend in with the African woods used, but it seems quite empty given the excessive space where 6 people can stay in three double rooms without bumping into each other. The bathrooms are spacious and the decor is tasteful, again complementing the Africa Safari feel. The amenities lack a bit of spirit and thought but the remainder of the Villa is equipped with everything a traveller would need, except maybe a TV that should be standard, but the high-speed internet made up for it. The breakfast is also served in one of the units on stilts and represents a rich standard for this class of accommodation. The service throughout is friendly although reception retires early and the guard becomes your biggest asset as he can orgabnise wood for the fireplace, even drinks and can also wash your car if he is not patrolling below the units through the bush. In summary: a stay at the Stilitz is highly recommended and adds one more memory to your trip

Positives: Cool concept: a hotel on stilts! Walking distance to town. Good breakfast. We could hear waves crashing all night. The staff is good (if a bit pushy) about booking local excursions. Still really helpful staff overall. Negatives: Room a bit shabby, could be updated. Limited parking (you may be forced to park on the street outside). Not all rooms have ocean view -- be sure to book one that does. Top to bathroom was open meaning (i) you can hear everything going on in the bathroom and (ii) when someone went to the bathroom in the night it lit up the entire room. Shower drain clogged.
