Skoon, maar daar moet veranderinge kom.

Oor die algemeen was dit nie sleg nie. Was wel teleurgesteld dat daar net 'n braaipan was. Geen 2-plaat stofie of potte en panne om kos te maak nie, wat ons geforseer het om êrens te gaan eet. Die plek is netjies en skoon. Braai-area is daar wel, maar slegs een braai. Dit maak dit werklik moeilik om 'n vleisie te wil braai, want niemand kan wag tot 10 uur die aand om dan vuur te maak en dan eers te braai nie. Parkering is beslis te min binne. Ons het die TV se afstandsbeheer gesoek en daar is gese sorry, daar is nie genoeg afstandsbeheerders vir al die TV's nie. Toe ek ook vir 'n 2-plaat stofie gevra het, soos wat dit op die foto's gewys het op elke slaapkamer, toe weet hulle nie waar dit is nie. Bietjie teleurgesteld, maar die plek was darem skoon.

Clean, but changes must come.

Overall it wasn't bad. Was disappointed that there was only a frying pan. No 2-plate stove or pots and pans to cook, which forced us to eat somewhere. The place is neat and clean. There is a braai area, but only one braai. This makes it really difficult to want to grill a piece of meat, because no one can wait until 10 o'clock in the evening to make a fire and only then grill. Parking is definitely too little inside. We looked for the TV's remote control and were told sorry, there are not enough remote controls for all the TVs. When I also asked for a 2-sheet fabric, as it was shown in the photos on each bedroom, then they did not know where it was. A little disappointed, but at least the place was clean.

Dankie vir u verblyf, ook die terugvoer.
Elke eenheid het 'n parkering agter slot en grendel.
Ek neem kennis van die braaipan stofie gaan 'n mini stoof met oond, met potte en panne insit.
Ons spasie laat ongelukkig slegs ruimte vir een braai area.
Dankie vir die terugvoer, ons verbeter graag.

Disappointing due to the lack of facilities for a self-catering unit.

It was good, but a lot needs to be done to improve this lovely flat. The facilities provided were totally inadequate. The two-plate stove looked as if it would explode, there were no cooking utensils, no bath soap, and we had to ask for a toaster. The layout was not well thought out and was uncomfortable, overcluttered with camping chairs, which were always in the way. The cleaning and housekeeping staff were lovely, but small details need to be addressed. It gives the impression of a hastily put together situation. The bedroom layout should be changed to enable one to get into the bed from both sides. This could be easily done with some thought, by putting the bed on the rear wall and moving the dressing table. For a self-catering unit, not much was available. People do not use aluminium pots, or should I say pot, as there was only one pot and nothing else. There was no electric frying pan, nor utensils to make anything like eggs. A few changes and some thought could make it a really lovely place. There also was no fan.

Eienaar het moeite gedoen om ons te akkommodeer.

Sal tog aanbeveel dat die eienaar meer aandag skenk wat in die eenhede is, bv. geen potte, die personeel moes gaan soek waar dit was. Geen wynglase, net koeldrankglase, ook geen botteloopmaker nie. Ons het egter lekker daar gebly.

Owner went out of his way to accommodate us.

Would recommend that the owner pay more attention to what is in the units, e.g. no pots, the staff had to go find where they were. No wine glasses, just soda glasses, no bottle opener either. However, we had a nice stay there.

Dink nie dit is heeltemal wat gesê is in die bespreking nie.

Daar is gesê dat daar braaigeriewe is. Daar is een braaiplek, wat baie moeilik bereikbaar is van die kamers waar ons gebly het. Die kamers is op die straat en sonder vensters. Die voertuig moes in die straat staan vir die nag. Seker nie te sleg vir een nag nie.

This review is being shown in its original language.
Translate to English.

Don't think that's quite what was said in the discussion.

It was said that there are braai facilities. There is one braai place, which is very difficult to reach from the rooms where we stayed. The rooms are on the street and without windows. The vehicle had to be parked in the street for the night. Probably not too bad for one night.

Vir een aand was dit goed genoeg, maar vir langer bly, sal ek iets wil hê met 'n uitsig.

Was goed vir een aand en skoon en netjies maar vir langer bly sal ek eerder 'n plek verkies met buite-braai en kuiergeriewe ook.

For one night it was good enough, but for a longer stay, I would want something with a view.

Was fine for one night and clean and tidy but for a longer stay I would rather prefer a place with outdoor barbecue and socializing facilities as well.

As kampers wou ons nie Luderitz se wind trotseer nie, en hierdie was puik alternatief.

Baie vriendelike diens. Daar is 'n sekuriteitswag vir ons gereël om na die voertuie en karavane in die straat te kyk deur die nag. Ons kon WiFi gebruik. Daar is ook wasgoedgeriewe teen 'n billike prys. Met ons kuier het dit baie gereën. Die plek is nie gemaak vir reën nie, dis immers die woestyn. Die stoep het vol water gedam wat by kamers inloop. Dis 'n frats dat dit so baie gereën het, so in normale omstandighede sal daar geen probleem wees nie. Sal die plek aanbeveel.

As campers, we didn't want to brave Luderitz's wind, and this was a great alternative.

Very friendly service. A security guard was arranged for us to watch the vehicles and caravans in the street throughout the night. We were able to use WiFi. There are also laundry facilities at a reasonable price. During our visit it rained a lot. The place is not made for rain, after all it is the desert. The porch was full of water that ran into rooms. It's a freak that it rained so much, so under normal circumstances there would be no problem. Would recommend the place.

Verblyf was goed.

Na aankoms het ek gevra vir 'n haardroër, die ontvangsdame het gebring na die woonstel, maar het baie na drank geruik. Dagga word gebruik op die perseel wat baie sleg ruik en gelei het tot 'n slegte nagrus en geweldige hoofpyn die volgende oggend.

Upon arrival I asked for a hair dryer, the receptionist brought to the apartment but smelled a lot of booze. Marijuana is used on the premises which smells very bad and led to a bad night's sleep and a terrible headache the next morning.

Netjies, beknop, slegs vir een aand oorgeslaap. Goedkoop, noisy.

Die ligging van OceanLife Accommodation is na aan die CBD geleë, so maak gereed vir relatiewe onrustigheid. Baie noise om die plek. Die plekkie self was baie netjies. Ons het net probleme gehad met miere wat konstant tussen ons groceries was en ook in die badkamer. Daar is slegs een venster in die badkamer en geen in die kamer gedeelte van die plekkie. Het mens bietjie vasgedruk laat voel. Parkering was secure maar bietjie beknop. Ons moes bietjie lank wag vir ontvangsdame om ons te ontvang, sowel as toe ons sleutel gaan afgee om uit te check. Daar was niemand op kantoor en ons moes klokkie by die hek lui en staan en wag totdat iemand ons kom help het. Ek sien dit as bietjie onprofessioneel. Wifi password was vir ons gegee maar dit het glad nie opgevang nie.

Neat, cramped, stayed over for one night only. Cheap, noisy.

The location of OceanLife Accommodation is located close to the CBD, so prepare for relative restlessness. Lots of noise around the place. The place itself was very neat. We only had problems with ants that were constantly between our groceries and also in the bathroom. There is only one window in the bathroom and none in the bedroom part of the place. Made you feel a little squeezed. Parking was secure but a bit cramped. We had to wait a bit long for the receptionist to receive us, as well as when we went to hand over our key to check out. There was no one in the office and we had to ring the bell at the gate and stand and wait until someone came to help us. I see it as a bit unprofessional. Wifi password was given to us but it didn't catch on at all.

The website photos are out dated and does not reflect the current status of Ocean Life.

The place was adequate but reminded us of a army barracks. We booked 2 days and arrived a day later due to mechanical failures of vehicle and suspect that we did not get the unit that was originally allocated to us. We did phone and advised that we were going to be a day late and this message was not relayed to the lady in the reception at Ocean Life. The shower leaked when used so the floor was wet in the shower and middle passage area. The curtains are inadequate to block out the sun if you go to bed before the sun has set. The kitchen utensils are also inadequate- only 1 big pot available for cooking! I will not recommend Ocean Life to anyone travelling to Lüderitz. I also had to prove that I had paid in full when I arrived as the receptionist had not been notified that full payment was done.
