My partner and I absolutely loved Selkirk. The best part had to be the hospitality. Pieter and Aleta are amazing hosts. We felt at home. Loved the conversations at breakfast. Perfectly located away from the buzz but not too far from the beach and restaurants. Quiet and tranquil.

Peter and Aletta were the most friendly, welcoming hosts. The accommodation was really superior with quality finishes. The bedrooms and bathrooms had every little mod con you can possibly think of and made our stay very memorable. There were at least 3 lounges shared among 5 bedrooms. Everything was perfect. Thank you for a wonderful stay and a delicious breakfast.... More

Pieter and Alette were extremely friendly and were excellent hosts. The house is modern and amazing with fabulous view from the balconies and upper deck. Our room was spacious and peaceful and a great home away from home. The breakfast was also great and extremely filling! Will definitely be back! Thanks for a wonderful trip!

On arriving we were welcomed by PIETER, he made us feel at home by his friendly approach, signed in and then went to our room. The room was very spacious with a king size bed, and extra chairs and table. The lights to the bathroom work automatic if you enter it goes on and will go off after you exit... More

Here I was thinking perfection doesn't exist, but I honestly can't think of anything that would have made our stay here better. The attention to detail is just exceptional. The guesthouse is located in a quiet part of Hermanus (but still only a few minutes by car from the action). You can see the ocean from the balconies. The rooms... More

Fabulous accomadation, spotless luxury, wonderful hosts, Aletta's breakfasts will be sorely missed. Perfect situation overlooking the bay, close to town, the golf course and nature reserve. Will certainly return.

Delightfully peaceful location. Lovely setting with the mountain backdrop and Walker Bay view to feast on. Top it up with excellent accommodation and great personal attention from Peter and Aletta... "We'll be back!" Oh, and don't forget the scrumptuous breakfast. Well done, Selkirk House!

Five-star luxury with the most friendly, relaxed and accommodating hosts in Peter and Aletta. Beautifully appointed rooms, lovely communal lounge and deck areas, and fantastic breakfasts ... not much else one could ask for really. I would recommend Selkirk House to anyone. Simply fabulous.

This is a stunning property that is truly 5 star. Pieter and Aletta could not have been more helpful, there when you need them but never obtrusive. 10 of us booked the place out for the weekend, and had a ball. The lounges are huge and great for socializing, the rooms beautiful, and the breakfast excellent. I would recommend Selkirk... More
