Onrus at a glance

Onrus, or Onrus River, forms part of a nearly continuous band of property along the coast. Lining up with Vermont, Sand Bay and Hermanus, Onrus forms a rich mixture of residential and commercial properties which create an impressive span of developed seaside land. The days of Hermanus and its surrounding towns being small, boring one horse villages are long gone. This strip has become the bustling heart of the Overberg, and a great place to put down roots.

Onrus River is a quiet area which enjoys a relaxed countryside atmosphere. All properties that are not on the beachfront are still only a stone’s throw away from the beach. Many properties enjoy at least a partial sea view while beachfront villas and holiday homes offer breathtaking and expansive views out over the ocean. Residents and holiday goers in Onrus have easy access to the white sandy beaches, warm Indian Ocean and various other attractions in and around the Overberg. Water sports, fishing, shark cage diving, nature reserves and much more can be found all along the coast.

There are various schools, such as the Hermanus Primary School and the Curro Hermanus Private School, within a short 19 kilometre distance, offering your children a quality education while they enjoy the freedom and fresh air of the countryside.
