Located at the foothill of the Melville Koppies
... is the ever popular, much talked and written about, 7th Street which boasts more than 25 restaurants, many cocktail lounges, gift shops, art dealers, book stores, hair salons, art galleries and much more. The variety offered by a whole city contained in one street is a merry blend of diverse retail offerings, which leads to a festive "village street" atmosphere, and the inspiration behind the popular South African television soap opera, "7de Laan" which is based on the street's authentic ambience.
A recent addition to the vibrant Melville village on 4th Avenue is "27 Boxes", a unique shopping and gastronomic complex! Most definitely a must visit to add to your bucket list.
7th Street Guesthouse, corner of 7th Avenue and 7th Street, is in the heart of all this activity. It is one of a few accommodation establishments in Melville with this level of variety practically right outside its front door. The fact that all amenities are within safe walking distance from 7th Street Guesthouse is the strongest draw card for the business tourist, who often will find themselves in town without transport.
