Comments from Owner Guestbook

'Each morning for three glorious weeks at the Villa St James we woke in the sweet silence of our little guest cottage just off the grapevine trellised patio of the main house and crawled reluctantly out from under our crisp Italian linens and down-filled duvet onto the terra cotta floor. First stop of the day: the house kitchen for coffee and fresh baked pastries from a nearby restaurant, Olympia Café, which the first person up each morning would bring, having biked the short distance into the nearby village of Kalk Bay. For the most part, I was too content to leave the house. More active guests ventured outside the estate to kite surf or hike the nature reserve beyond the back garden, jog or play tennis at the seaside courts a short walk down the road. On the rare occasion when I did leave the house, I would wander down to Kalk Bay for an ice cream or to browse its harbour and antique shops. In short we experienced the perfect marriage of luxurious living and local charm. '

INTRODUCTION

Hovering over False Bay with a 360-degree view of mountain and sea, is the enchanting and luxurious Villa St James, a restored historical National Monument ideal for a lavish seaside holiday, wedding or corporate function in the coastal town of St James.

St James, situated 30 minutes from Cape Town center, was the first resort to be developed by the British in the early 1900’s. Today St James is celebrated for its balmy climate, warmer Cape waters, whale watching and accessibility along the railway line which extends along the scenic coastal route to Simon’s Town.

Wedding ceremonies are able to take place in either the mountain garden or in the garden overlooking the ocean. We are also able to co-ordinate a ceremony on the beach opposite the Villa

Among the many visual treats in this room are Venetian mirrors, silk curtains, crystal chandeliers, a gilded ceiling, state of the art stereo, views of sea and garden, and deco parquet floors. The grand dining room is truly a regal event.

AMENITIES

The living and leisure zone on the ground floor features an elegant 22 seater dining room for an intimate wedding, formal dinner function or conference.
