This is a very quirky but delightful hotel within easy walking of Swakopmund. The room we had was roomy and very clean with a view over the lagoon/sea. Staff were kind and helpful. The only thing that lets it down is the breakfast which is a little uninteresting. Worth staying there though.

After staying in nothernmost Swakopmund we found this spectacular property in southernmost part of town after a brief drive to Walvis Bay. Stiltz is truly enchanting, with its gorgeous bungalows atop stilts surrounded by trees and desert plants. Flamingoes and pelicans can be seen flying past, the ocean is within quick walking distance, and the comfy furnishings seem designed for...

Had a great few days at the Stiltz. We had plenty of time on our tour to relax around Swakopmund and the Stiltz was fantastic. No facilities for dinenr but that meant we could go around and sample the local delights. Close to everything. Great stay. Definitely reccommend eating at the Tug and also hiring bikes to ride along the...

A group of four adults, we stayed in the villa which was HUGE and had ample space for six ... spacious bedrooms (especially the 'master' upstairs) and a lovely living area. We were delighted! The location was perfect ... right on the sea overlooking the reserve, where we saw plenty of flamingos and pelicans. Delicious omelette and fresh coffee for...

Very pleasant cottages on stilts. Spacious rooms with sitting area and nice bathroom. One of the few lodges in Namibia where there are heating and electric blankets provided in winter. Good wifi in rooms. Very attentive staff. They are also willing to help you book restaurants and excursions. Good location. Good restaurants in walking distance. Delicious breakfast with fresh pancakes,...

This is a brilliant place, the lodges are wonderful and beautifully decorated and ours overlooked water that was home to lots of flamingos, pelicans and puffins. The breakfast is excellent and the whole place is built on wooden stilts with wooden walkways between. It was fantastic! There is a small car park which a lovely chap called Johnny guards at...

Older style rooms but comfortable, spacious & clean. Good to be able to get some laundry done and a reasonable charge. Good breakfast. Edge of town location with ocean views. Security on site. Good birding in the area if you're interested.

We drove from Cape Cross Lodge to Swakopmund and stayed at the Stiltz. The Stiltz is on the ‘edge’ of Swakopmund but still only a 10-15 minute walk to the main shopping area – but you can walk along the ocean which is nice. We were in room 6 and it had a great view of the ocean, flamingos, sunset...

We stayed two nights at the Stiltz and it was thoroughly enjoyable. We were lucky enough to stay in the rooms that had an unobstructed view of the river mouth were there was an abundance of birdlife as well as a group of camels that came down to drink. The Stiltz is in walking distance from the sea and so...
