Located at the foot of a quiet mountain, with sweeping views of Walker Bay, Selkirk House offers the excitement of cutting-edge technology, together with the homely comfort of a well-designed guest house. Close by is the 27-hole golf course, while Arabella is a mere 20 minute drive away.

The décor is minimalistic and modern, with white American blinds ensuring cool privacy. The ground floor lounge opens onto the Karoo stone barbecue area and a splash pool with a tumbling water feature on one side, and a terrace overlooking the golf course and the ocean on the other side. The top floor bar lounge, equipped with a plasma TV with all DStv channels, has its own sea view terrace, while also giving access to a rooftop deck where 360° views of mountain and sea can be enjoyed.

The luxury suites, each with a private terrace or balcony, have extra length king-size or twin beds with fine percale linen and supersoft allergy-free duvets. Each tastefully decorated, fully automated room is equipped with a bar fridge, tea and coffee-making facilities, a flat screen TV, international adaptor, a mini safe, hair dryer, Wi-Fi Internet, and iPod station. The bathroom has a bath, double volume shower, twin wash basins, heated towel rails, cotton gowns and Charlotte Rhys toiletries.

Guests can use the Internet facilities in the library or relax on its mountain view terrace, where gently cascading waterfalls convey a sense of peace and tranquillity. The temperature controlled walk-in wine cellar is stocked with the finest wines from local estates.

The village centre with its many boutiques, bookshops, coffee shops, restaurants, markets, art galleries and museums is a five-minute drive away. Hermanus is one of the world’s top land-based whale watching destinations. The Southern Right whales visit our shores between the months of July and December. Rich in fynbos and birdlife, Hermanus has much to offer the outdoor enthusiast. Lovely hikes and picnic spots abound along with pristine beaches, amongst which is the famed Blue Flag Grotto Beach, located a mere five-minute drive from Selkirk House.

We had an awesome time at Selkirk house during July 2014. Steyn, the host, was excellent and all his recommendations on places to visit could not have been more perfect. Rooms were spacious, very modern and had everything we could wish for. There'd be no hesitation in booking at the Selkirk House again.

We were fortunate to stay at Selkirk over the Easter Weekend and enjoyed it thoroughly. Ina made us scones and muffins at special request. It was raining all weekend, and the gas for the fireplace had not arrived, so unfortunately we felt the cold.
