Guestbook comments from the owner

'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. '

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 in the coastal town of St James.

St James, situated 35 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.

Villa St James accommodates up to 16 guests in 8 spacious bedrooms with extra long beds and five bathrooms. Each bedroom, unique in character, has sea or mountain views with variable features of private outdoor or indoor balconies and a rabbit warren of inter-leading doors.

The living and leisure zone on the ground floor features an elegant dining room for 22 guests. The décor blends nautical accents with collectable deco throughout the 2 lounges and billiard room along with influences of Africa and traditional Cape Dutch style.
