A luxurious and stately seaside retreat with majestic views across False Bay and the Indian Ocean.
St James, historically known as Millionaire’s Mile, is making its comeback as one of the trendiest places to stay in Cape Town. The area still boasts the traditional, colourful Victorian bathing boxes and grand old houses.
The St James Manor, built a hundred years ago, has an aura of grandeur and old world charm. A magnificent staircase leads up to the 6 large suites, individually decorated to reflect the opulent times of a bygone era. Some have a patio to enjoy the gorgeous view. Carved into the mountain is a private and wind protected swimming pool and tanning deck with views across False Bay.
St James Manor overlooks the trendy and vibrant fishing village of Kalk Bay. Mediterranean in style with quaint walkways, it is a hive of novel antique shops, deli’s, boutiques and art galleries and all just a few minutes’ walk away. The famous tidal pools and swimming beaches are just in front. An early morning swim in the wind protected, warm waters of St James is a favourite of guests.
Perhaps the biggest attraction is land based whale watching in season. They appear literally meters from the shoreline and St James Manor is one of the best places to watch them.
Breakfasts are a speciality offering a wide choice of interesting fare and are inclusive. There are many cafes and fresh seafood plus other restaurants a short walk away. The resident’s bar and various in and out lounge areas, allow relaxing time in.
