Welcome to the Sonnleiten Village ® Retirement Residence

Thank you for visiting us on the home page of Sonnleiten Village Retirement Residence. We are very happy about it.

If you have been with us before, you will find that during the last years not only the name but also many other things have changed on Sonnleiten. The previous owners are no longer with us and the residents themselves have become the new owners of the small but luxurious Retirement Village.

As a co-owner and member of the management, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Herbert Corzilius, I am 74 years old, I live here with my wife since May 2010 and am on the board of directors. Amongst other things, I am responsible for the sale of units that are vacant.

We would like to introduce you to our small but fine and exclusive world. Sonnleiten Village is located in the middle of the Namibian savannah, with rich flora and fauna and is about 7 km away from the airport Hosea Kutako (little noise) towards Windhoek and into the city, it is about 35 km.

Sonnleiten consists of 50 residential units, all of which were wheelchair-designed in 2007 with first-time use. They are equipped with a solar system for water heating and a complete fitted kitchen of a high quality standard. The bathrooms are fitted with bright wall tiles and their floors have tiles and under floor heating.

Near the central pool, you will find a cosy relaxation unit where diverse services are offered on a monthly basis, such as med. Foot care, hairdressing, massage, cosmetics, physiotherapy (twice a week) and more. Likewise a large restaurant which serves breakfast and lunch as well as a (small 4 beds) Care-Unit, should an emergency occur. Highly qualified first-aiders are present 24 hours a day, 360 days a year for all residents.

The entire property comprises 255 hectares of natural land, so that extended walks on its own grounds are always possible. In addition to the outside of the gated community (6 hectares), barbecue areas and viewing or sun downer places are available and occasionally even pieces of game can be observed, such as Kudus, Oryx, Warthogs, Porcupines, Hartebeest and more.

We also have our own water supply at our disposal, wheras electricity is received from the public grid.

If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact me directly. Please use the following e-mail address: cg@herbco.de.

In addition, we are happy to offer you test residing at Sonnleiten Village to give you the opportunity to explore the facility and its possibilities and to get to know us. We also offer a one-week stay in a comparable unit of approx. 80 sqm living space at a price of NA $ 975 (61 €) per person per night including breakfast. This price will be fully reimbursed when you purchase a residential unit.

Tourist visas for up to 90 days are issued on arrival at the airport in Windhoek, without time-consuming effort, and are free of charge. A permanent residence permit that can be applied for and is normally granted to pensioners - from the age of 50 years on - within 3 months on presentation of some documents, when they buy a house.

Best regards from the beautiful and warm Namibia

Herbert Corzilius
Chairman of the Board of Directors

Latest press release:

News from Sonnleiten Village Retirement Residence

Since 1 May 2017 Sonnleiten Farm Residence belongs to the residents. The majority of residents have agreed to convert their originally acquired lifelong right of habitatio in respect of their units into a Sectional Title Scheme. This process - a first of its kind in Namibia - will soon be completed. From then on Sonnleiten Farm Residence will be a "Body Corporate", a legal entity that will be known as "Sonnleiten Village".
