We've been coming to the Villa for years for our organisation's quarterly board meetings. The huge dining room is perfect for our meetings and the house is wonderful for relaxing and catching up in between our sessions. The Villa is comfortably furnished and well equipped. There are so many rooms that a large group can find enough space to spread...

What a great house to stay in. Our group of 10 (3 couples and 4 young adults) stayed over the Christmas period. The pictures don't do it justice. It exceeded all our expectations. Plenty of room and great setting. Friends who visited were in awe of the place. Joyce was brilliant and always able to help no matter what the...

It was a perfect house for 9 old friends from school to have some fun. We were only there for one night so didn't enjoy the bar, billiards room or pool but enjoyed the gorgeous sea views on the grass with a glass of bubbly. The rooms are neat and clean and you get given clean towels on the beds....

We had a truly fantastic stay at the villa. Barbara was super helpful in recommending reliable suppliers to arrange our conferencing needs, and the housekeeper Joyce is an absolute angel. All the arrangements were hassle free. The villa itself is just awesome - we enjoyed our stay immensely and will definitely be back.

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...

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...

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 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...
