I'm a 39 year old Australian entrepreneur, and love traveling and meeting cool people.
We were hosted by Kris Gaunt in Walvis Bay over the Christmas holidays. We were a group of of 9 people composed of two families. The house was spacious and clean. The neighborhood was Superb - Clean, Quiet and Safe. We came with two Mercedes: ML350 and C200. We parked them outside the yard on the road side, but we never experienced any problems for the entire 6 days we spent there!
Kris has 3 dogs in the yard - very well trained, I must say! Initially our kids were scared of them. However, they realized that they were friendly and started playing with them. So don't fret when Kris "cautions" you that they have dogs! Yes, they have dogs, but very friendly and peaceful ones!
Kris was our "guide" in absentia in Walvis Bay! He left us a detailed note introducing us to the house, best restaurants around and must see activities in Walvis Bay! He made it easy for us to plan our stay in Walvis Bay and move around without a physical guide.
Thank for making our stay in Walvis Bay memorable! I highly recommend anyone going to Walvis Bay to consider lodging in the Entire House and Guest Flat. It is also affordable and suitable for a group of 9 people.
Kris and his dad are wonderful hosts!!! Warm, friendly and very helpful! They made our stay in Walvis Bay all the better! Kris has contacts with all tour operators and can get you good rates. He also knows all the great places to eat (which for a foodie is fantastic).
Their house is very homey and you get your privacy too - we had the whole top floor to ourselves. To top it off we had a great spread for breakfast!
