We celebrated a 50th with some family and friends. Gorgeous dining room with a loooooong table - perfect for a celebration dinner. The stoep with sea views reaching all the way to Simon's Town was perfect for cup after cup of early morning coffee. Kalk Bay with great restaurants and shops an easy walk (approximately 1 km) away. Would love... More

We were supposed to travel to South Africa in december 2014, and stay at Villa St James. Due to different circumstances that we couldn´t control, we had to cancel the trip. We tried to find a solution with the payment with the owners, but they just continued to ignore us! I could have written a novel about what happened, but... More

Stayed for 4 nights as a wedding guest. House comfortably sleeps 18 people. Perfect location across the road from St James beach and most stunning sea views. Also lovely mountain views from the back. We had the privilege to watch a huge whale in the water so close in the bay all from the patio. Easy to walk along the... More

We were so happy we chose to have our wedding at Villa St. James. It was the perfect venue for the intimate and relaxed wedding we wanted. We had our ceremony on the front lawn overlooking the ocean and then moved inside for the reception and a delicious dinner in the dining room. The house had everything we needed to... More

The villa was the perfect setting for our ceremony and anniversary party. It has a certain charm and old world splendour that added to the magic of the weekend. The house was equipped with everything that we needed during our stay and the large spacious ground floor and garden were perfect for our small group of family and friends to... More

We were 16 people staying at the Villa after my wedding and it was amazing, we could not have chosen anything better. The house is equipped with absolutely everything you need, and provides an excellent location for celebrations, especially for out of towners. There are breathtaking sea, mountain and garden views from all the rooms. You are in close proximity... More

Our wedding was amazing at the villa. We had the ceremony and reception there. For the weekend we pretended as if we lived at the Villa and friends and family were coming for our wedding dinner. It was magical and even though it was cold and raining outside no one noticed as the house was so warm and cosy with... More

We were a group of 13 near the end of a motorcycle tour of South Africa, and we finished the trip with a five night stay at Villa St James in late November 2012. Barbara gave us a great welcome and an introductory tour of the property. It is a gorgeous old villa, beautifully furnished but with a very comfortable,... More

Eleven of us spent two wonderful days at the Villa St James, on a management strategy session. We used the dining room for the serious stuff, and gathered around the fire in the lounge for the more relaxed part of the day. Excellent venue, we'll definitely use it again.

This was the perfect place to have a vacation with the whole family. Location, views, swimming pool, dining room, WIFI, pool billiard, kitchen, braai, Joyce who took care of the dishwashing, you name it. Big enough to have your privacy, but intimate enough to have the family experience you can dream of.
