Can't fault it, the Guesthouse is walking distance from restaurants and the beach with very friendly and helpful owners. Cliff path is a few meters away and a true highlight. Staying at 78 on 5th is highly recommended

We had a lovely stay at this guest house. Everything was very clean, spacious and comfortable. Our host was friendly. The breakfast was great. The property is situated close to good beaches and close enough to the center of Hermanus. We really enjoyed out stay and would have loved to have stayed longer. We will be sure to stay there...

We stayed one night and were very well received. Easy to find and near a grocery store. It's a little off the city center. And they. Do serve only breakfast. However, there is a tuk tuk service that drops you and pick you up in town for a few bucks. Place is very clean and relaxing. Service is perfect. Beds...

A haven of rest and relaxation on the very edge of a nature reserve and with the staff, now friends, quietly efficient, always available, but never intrusive. Our private patio, overgrown by passion fruit, with its close-up view of the imposing mountain which ever echoed the sounds of the sea. The multitude of birds, displaying, singing and bathing unconcernedly within...

We found the guest house to be clean and nicely furnished. Our room was a little small and dated (needing a bit of a refurbishment) but had a good view of the mountain. The breakfast was limited in choice but adequate. Represents good value for money.

Rooms were very neat and great sized balconies! Kitchens could use a little work but not serious. Not in walking distance to beach. Exceptional service and friendly staff were amazing and were willing to do anything to make our trip special so thank you for that!

The place was great and very clean. Out door patio was great and the parking space at the back was adequate and access to the family room via the rear entrance was a great assistance. However just to let you know-the 3 single beds adjacent to the lounge had no sheets on so my colleague improvised with some blankets. Otherwise...

Interesting place with art works . Very clean and neat place in quiet location . Restaurant nearby and felt comfortable walking to it . Very friendly owners tried and succeeded in catering for all needs. Minor drawback was that the room was a little small

Because 78on5th is owner run it is your home away from home.
