Organic Square Guesthouse
Swakopmund - Namibia
Organic Square Guesthouse is located in Namibia's premier seaside resort of Swakopmund. The central location is ideal for those who want to be close to both the town, beach and Swakopmund Jetty. Swakopmund is a popular holiday town with both locals and international tourists, and during Namibian school holidays and on long weekends visitors throng to this seaside resort (often to escape the heat of the interior).
Swakopmund is a quirky town, it is steeped in Namibia's colonial passed, and many of the buildings would fit straight into any German village. Over the last few decades this formerly sleepy town has started to embrace tourism and now boasts scores of guest houses, bed & breakfasts and hotels. There are also plenty of small shops, coffee shops and bakeries (many with a distinctly German twist). For those wanting to participate in activities there is something for everyone - from adrenaline fueled activities such as sand boarding or quad biking to more sedate pastimes such as dolphin cruises, golf and fishing. Organic Square Guest House is based in this eclectic town and promises to offer 'Africa with a European touch'!
The guesthouse offers a number of indoor and outdoor seating areas to relax and unwind. Facilities include same day laundry service, airport shuttle, secure parking and wireless LAN. Your first meal of the day can be served either in the breakfast room or outside in the garden amongst freshly grown herbs, to a pleasant background of water features or the near-by lapping waves of the Atlantic Ocean. As you might expect from the name, a healthy organic breakfast, with fresh home-made juices/smoothies, cereals, yogurt, home-baked breads savoury muffins, short bread and coffee are served.
The Zen Eatery, at Organic Square Guest House, offers something light to eat of an evening. Snack platters, cheese board, soup, specials of the day and a sweet desert are on offer. Home-brewed iced teas and lemonade can also be ordered. Open Tuesdays to Saturdays from 18h00 to 21h30. On Sundays, High Tea is served from 15h00 to 17h30. Cakes, cookies and pastries can be accompanied by freshly brewed coffee and a selection of teas.
