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.

We-a group of "Golden Oldies"- hire the villa and then club together and produce our own table settings and menus. The chefs in our group all get a chance to out-compete each other in a very grand and well equipped kitchen. So far we have done a Christmas in Winter, a celebration of Italian cooking and a South African weekend.... More

After a long and fruitless search for a place to host a large group for my 40th birthday, a friend suggested Villa St James. It was perfect! Great location, gorgeous house with lovely rooms and an amazing dining room to host a birthday dinner party. the ladies who looked after the booking (Barbara and Sally) took all the stress out...
