Selah is majestically positioned at the hang of the iconic Overberg Mountain range, providing superior views of both the azure-blue ocean and lush Fynbos mountain scape.  With dramatic architecture emulating the beautiful flow of the encapsulating peaks, Selah offers true luxury from every vantage point, and is a peaceful safe haven for guests who want to pause and reflect. This villa features spacious self-catering accommodation, ideal for families in need of vast open spaces, yet desiring the need for privacy.  The sleek pool and undercover BBQ/braai area are set for family entertainment, whilst the Fynbos garden attracts birdlife from afar.

Upon having crossed a tranquil pond bridge, guests are beckoned to step into Selah’s grand display of spectacular wooden architecture throughout the spacious main living, dining and kitchen areas, a feature unlike any other in Hermanus. Fine art and furniture compliment the cathedral-like ceilings, and are carefully expressed throughout. The mountain-side garden court and pool area are a main attraction with relaxation, entertainment and family togetherness being the centrepiece for much needed pause-and-reflect moments. The large el fresco dining table and outdoor braai/BBQ enhance the joy of holiday fun, and this is pulled into the main living area of the villa. A lovely fireplace in the lounge shouts, “Stay… Stare… Reconnect… Revitalise.”

The home can accommodate 12 guests and comprises 4 bedrooms and loft room, 3 of which are in the main house. The fifth room is an en-suite pool cottage room. The main en-suite bedroom contains a King size bed and has a private balcony with beautiful views of the mountain. The bathroom features a shower. The second and third bedrooms contain king-size beds and they have adjoining bathrooms, one featuring a shower and the other a bath, which can be used by guests from the fourth loft room comprising 2 sleeper couches; ideal for children. These rooms share a balcony overlooking the ocean and garden.  The loft room also has a smart tv. The outside cottage room comprises a double bed, mini fridge, coffee machine and adjoining bathroom with a shower.

The main house open-plan kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer, a gas hob and electric oven, a microwave, a kettle and toaster, a coffee machine, a dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer, as well as basic cleaning materials. In the tv lounge is a smart tv. A back up battery system counters the effects of load shedding. Guests have secure parking for 4 cars (one in a garage), and the property is secure with an alarm system. Free wi-fi is available on demand.

The house is ideally located within a short drive to Onrus Beach, the Coffee Corner, which serves fabulous breakfast and lunches.

  1. Christian & Theresa Trumpelmann

    Our family had a restful, peaceful and joyful holiday at Selah. The house feels like a symphony with many different intonations… the mountain…the sea…the fuynbos…to breathe and just be. Thank you for this home of “stop and listen”! 🤍 Christian, Theresa and family

  3. Welma Els

    My stay at Selah, was truly a breathing and break away from the buzz. Beautiful and serene in every way. A gift of rest, truly appreciated this wonderful stay.

  4. Elizabeth Jordaan

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Selah. Stunning views of the sea and mountains. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and comfortable. What a joy to cook in the kitchen or at the outside braai, and relax in the living room or the pool deck. No matter from which side the wind blows, there is a warm and cozy spot on the sun porch. The birdlife is fantastic. Really worth it. I’ll be back…

    Waking up with the view of the sea, hummingbirds in the fynbos garden and the mountains behind me. Wow wow wow. Would definitely love to stay there again.

  10. Anicka

    One of the most beautiful places I have stayed, the photos does not do it justice at all, staying here was an experience I would highly recommend and would definitely go again, the home has such beautiful natural light through out and waking up in and having a coffee every morning with the view was one of my favourite parts. Perfect for a family holiday or group booking.
