Surfing | Sustainable Living | Extraordinary Food is what we're about. Our cozy surf house is located in Swakopmund, a relaxed town on our wave-rich coastline, buzzing with good coffee and nestled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Namib Desert ...dunes. For those who enjoy surfing, adventure and vast, natural landscapes - this is the place for you. The airport shuttle is available on request. How do you get there? It depends on where you are coming from. There are a few ways to get here; one of the best way to get to Swakopmund is by road from Windhoek. The B2 is the main road from Windhoek (362 km inland), and takes 4–5 hours by car. Walvis Bay, the closest major city, is 35 km to the south, also next to the B2. The road is paved and in good condition. WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT US 5/5 Excellent stay! Staff friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean and comfortable. The location was accessible and convenient.
