The Charming Houses
Villa Margherita, The Charming Houses, is a small luxury boutique hotel in the heart of Swakopmund consisting of four stylish buildings which are all located close to each other on the same premises.
At the beginning of the last century, the building was called, Dr Schwietering Haus and served as the private residence of Swakopmund’s first doctors, Mr & Mrs Schwietering.
The Cottages were formally the stables of Dr. Schwietering’s horses. He rode his beloved horses every day at sunset through the dunes, which at that time, came all the way to the doorstep of the property.
Today, Villa Margherita stands as a fusion of contemporary art and historic colonial buildings. With beautifully manicured gardens and double rooms, most of them having a private lounge area, Villa Margherita offers seclusion and personalised service.
All the rooms offer a flat screen TV, safe, complimentary tea/coffee station, hairdryer and free wireless internet connection and room service.
Organic bistro with a great selection of wines and spirits
We look forward to fulfilling every wish while ensuring you feel utterly pampered and special.
An abundance of century-old Namibian history awaits you in The Manor. Once the private home and practice of the first doctor that Swakopmund welcomed in 1908. The Manor is comprised of 3 luxury rooms and 3 suites, mostly independently accessible, making it ideal for groups, families and solo elite travellers. The Manor can be rented exclusively and includes a kitchen and private dining rooms, which are available for private catering.
Located next to the Manor it consists of 2 independent suites called Tristano & Isotta which together can host up to 6 people. The suite's walls are adorned with a unique black & white photographic collection of century-old Namibia. The Villa is ideal for groups, families and solo elite travellers. A fully equipped, tailor-made kitchen with a separate dining room is available for your private use.
The former stables of Dr Schwietering magically turned into 2 stunning suites with direct access to the main garden and private outside sitting areas. Both Lord Nelson and Lady Hamilton rooms are ideal for couples or families, as they have an interleading door between the suites available.

Lovely Villa, nice staff and good location with secure car parking. Would recommend for a few nights in Swakop.
To start off the service was amazing, truly blown away by how kind everyone was to us. Secondly the location in the city was perfect, we only had one night here but got to see some good parts of the city without having to walk too far. Lastly the room we had was gorgeous. They have different style rooms and we had the one with a balcony. Everything was... Read this review
Great little boutique Hotel in the center of Swakopmund. The staff is lovely, especially the woman at the reception Mutti is attentive and really friendly. Breakfast is very tasty and the massage is very good (Unfortunately I forgot the name of the massage woman, but her massages are amazing). The wifi works well, however it was a bit cold in the rooms during night. I would definitely recommend this... Read this review
