The Alternative Space Bed and Breakfast in Swakopmund, Namibia, is run by Frenus, the architect, and by his non-architect wife, Sibylle. Ten years ago, Sibylle fell in love with the Alternative Space B&B and she never left again for her native Germany.

The Alternative Space was established during colonial times, as the first and only alternative art gallery, in which
anti-colonial and anti-apartheid artist could exhibit fine art and photography.

Providing accommodation to interested people was a natural progression in the life of the gallery. With its extensive collection of Namibian art and photography, liberally exhibited in all the rooms, white washed walls, beautiful gardens with green lawns, palm trees, banana and olive trees, the Alternative Space accommodation that is conducive of friendship, sensuality and romance.

Excellent evenings are often spent round the open fire in the cave-like communal lounge. Should you get Frenus going, he will most enthusiastically explain to you the socio-political position of a patriotic African, and the sheer magic of life in Swakopmund and Namibia.

Sibylle always welcomes her guests with a bottle of champagne. With only four individually designed and decorated non smoking en-suite rooms, each and every guest is assured of her special attention. Sibylle's motto is that every little detail is important, and nothing is ever a problem. Her philosophy is most noticeable in the outstanding buffet breakfast with all the fresh German delicacies that can be enjoyed at leisure from 7 till noon.

The Alternative Space bed and breakfast speaks of life being lived as an exquisite and exciting art form. Frenus and Sibylle would love to meet you, and share the magic . . .

The accommodation at the Alternative Space B&B is NOT RECOMMENDED for those that are miserable, or finds pictures of nudity and mixed race relationships, offensive.
