St James, which stretches only 1.5 km, is a suburb which is steeped in history. If you are looking for open spaces, magnificent scenery and a sense of tranquility and your blend of choice includes a combination of mountain and sea with a touch of earthy elegance, then your accommodation in St. James should be your destination of choice.

Colourful bathing boxes are the trademark of St James and the start of grand stone houses that line the road to Muizenberg. The homes reflect the history of a wealthy colonial past and it is easy to see why this section was called “Millionaire’s Mile” and is making its comeback as one of the trendiest places to stay in the Cape Town area.

Restaurants, cafes, museums and the area's famous antique shops and art boutiques lie in walking distance of vacation rentals. The main road is Mediterranean style. Protected tidal swimming pools and swimming beaches are around the corner from your lodging accommodations. From August-December, you can watch the whales. There are many things to do and see, in and around your Cape Town vacation rental accommodations, and the Cape Peninsula. St James is a retreat from cosmopolitan living, where residents walk along the ocean’s edge on a daily basis, swim in the tidal pool and play tennis. The beach itself is not all that big but the small size adds to the charm and there are some rock pools on either side to explore. St James is a vacation spot all year round, and offers condo rentals, apartments, and other vacation rentals. Visit the famous tidal pool, historic Kalk Bay Harbor, Cecil John Rhodes and Natalia Labia Museums.

Cape Town and its residents love to dine out and this is reflected in the multitude of restaurants; spectacular outdoor eating locations within close proximity to your vacation rental. Fresh ingredients and first-rate cooking are normal. With two coastlines, it’s no wonder that seafood is the taste of the day, although meat eaters are well catered for and there is a selection of exotic game dishes in many of the restaurants close to your vacation rental. It is recommended that you sample the Cape Wines with your meal – wine has been produced in Cape Town for centuries and is amongst the finest produced on the globe.
