Property description

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. Relaxation comes easily with a substantial music and literary collection, an English pub and a secluded courtyard with trellised grapevines.

The living area spills outdoors to the sheltered garden and outdoor swimming pool, with unbroken vistas of the Indian Ocean. From the outdoor terrace captivating hours observing human aqua activities and the subtle changes of nature will mesmerise even the most cynical city dweller.

Villa St James is a self-catering oasis of privacy, but is maintained at all times by courteous and professional staff. Your specific needs are important to us and will be handled with proficient assurance, leaving you free to enjoy a memorable stay at Villa St James.

We look forward to welcoming you to Villa St James and assisting you with all your concierge requirements including a private chef, daily housekeeping, car hire, airport transfers, babysitting, restaurant bookings, tours, activities and more…

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Managed by South Africans who live, work and play in the South Peninsula of Cape Town. Passionate about the area, the sea, the mountains, the history and the people of Cape Town.

Why the Owner Chose Kalk Bay:
We fell in love with the character that emanates from an historical building... there seem to be so many stories in the thick walls, stories that seem to spill out of the sash windows and into the fresh sea air. There is a calmness that comes with age, there is a wisdom and nurturing that comes with time.. just like a good bottle of wine! In fact, we fell in love sitting in front of the fire, drinking a bottle of wine with good friends. (Summer living is pretty fun too!)

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
You can spend hours staring at the ocean in front of the Villa... the moods and activity... from birds, to dolphins to whales in season. We watch the weather change, and the sun rise, we watch kayakers and fishermen, walkers, runners, cyclists, trains and more. The dining room just begs for people to sit around the table with good food, wine and laughter! Made for socialising with great people. It's perfect for a family reunion or a group... enough space to do your own thing (or hide!) and enough communal space to be with the people you love and having fun things to do.
