From the greeting on arrival to the departure, I cannot thank you enough. Lovely convenient location and very comfortable accommodations. Excellent breakfast as well. A close walk to the centre of Plettenberg Bay as well as beaches. A definite 'must stay'

5th House is an absolutely beautiful, family run property. The decorations are wonderful, rooms are comfortable and airy. Breakfast was delicious with cooked options if you want them. We were given fantastic recommendations for dinner which didn't disappoint. Location and view stunning. Have already recommended this hotel to others and we would definitely go back to stay

This was an amazing little find which is in a great location a short walk down to the beaches and restaurants of Plettenburg Bay. The management and staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast options were great.

We had a very nice stay at the 5th house. Maryke and Anton are such nice hosts and made us feel like visiting friends at their place. We had a nice room with an own terrace. Within a couple of minutes you can reach the main street and also the beach. So the house has a perfect place in Plettenberg...
