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...

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...

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...

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,...

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....
