“Whale watching and mountain views”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

Located at the base of the mountain has good views over the bay or to the mountains. Stylish modern place. Family suite was excellent with two bedrooms and ensuites plus direct access to the pool. Breakfast was good although we would have appreciated the choice of cereals.
Host very helpful with advice for eating out and viewing whales.

We spent two nights at 78on5th at Hermanus during our honeymoon in SA. We were really impressed. A lovely B&B with a friendly atmosphere, fabulous style and lovely food prepared with a different breakfast every morning. This place is excellent value for money and a perfect location for those (like us!) who don't want to be in the busy town area.

Room Tip: We had a mountain view and had the sun on our balcony and easy access to the pool. \

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. - Will definitely be visiting again.

It is located a couple minutes drive out of town against the mountain with stunning views.
Perfect if you need some peace and quiet, yet only a block or two away from the ocean.

The sea facing room we stayed in was great. Very neat and clean, well decorated (as was the entire B&B - very stylish) and spacious. There was ample closet space, a huge balcony to relax on and a nice kitchenette area with bar fridge and cutlery/plates where one can prepare coffee and snacks.

The bathroom was very big as well with a huge tub and shower big enough for two.

All in all, a very comfortable stay and highly recommended. Very good value for money.

Stayed there with my wife for 4 nights in July. The suite we had which faced the sea was superb and we also had a large balcony where we could sit. Our hosts were very helpful and made us welcome. The property has style and is very tastefully furnished. The breakfasts were great and I would have no hesitation in staying there again. It is situated away from the centre but if you have a vehicle it only takes a few minutes to get into town.
I would highly recommend staying at the property.
