78on5th started off as our private home but because we wanted to share our beautiful home & extensive collection of original art we decided to convert our home into a bed & breakfast. We also love to travel which made it easier for us to cater for like minded travelers who enjoy the finer things in life. We are situated in the more quiet popular suburb Voelklip, walking distance to the local swimming beaches and bordering the Fernkloof Nature Reserve with its various mountain biking and hiking trails
We love to travel and we are always looking at what we can do to improve your stay with us. Coming from a restaurant background breakfast is our pride and we love preparing something different for you every morning!
78's facade overlooks a green belt providing unobstructed views of the ocean while the rear lies adjacent to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve with sweeping vistas of the mountains behind. Guest have access to a solar heated pool and are literally a stones throw away from one of the many paths leading into the nature reserve. Rooms have all the mod cons including separate entrances with private patios, free wireless internet and air conditioning. Location, great rates and it's proximity to the cliff path, beaches, the popular Lizettes Kitchen, a convenience store and town make 78 on 5th a popular choice for holiday
