St James, situated 35 minutes from Cape Town center, was the first resort to be developed by the British in the early 1900’s.

It is not surprising that Villa St James, with an illustrious history since 1850 and previous home to the British Admiralty, the Greek Royal family and South African Statesman Jan Smuts, is now a magnificent venue for private stays.

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 people in 8 bedrooms with 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…
