About St James Seaforth
With its spectacular ocean views, St. James Seaforth is set above the coastal road that winds its way through St James en route to Cape Point. The original house, built in 1877 and destroyed by a fire in 1939, was rebuilt as a double storey in 1940 and looks down onto a beautiful stretch of beach that is well-known to the surfing community.
The property has been refurbished to create a modern guesthouse with a casual but elegant atmosphere in keeping with its seaside village location.
The upstairs en-suite bedrooms are engaging and stylish as are the spacious downstairs facilities, which include a breakfast and dining room, a well-equipped kitchen and a large lounge and study that flow onto the veranda, pool and downstairs gym. St. James Seaforth is perfect to hire as a unit for a family or group of friends.
Breakfasts are a speciality offering a wide choice of interesting fare and are inclusive, as are all beverages.
ABOUT THE AREA
St James, historically known as ‘millionaire’s mile’, is making its comeback as one of the trendiest places to stay in Cape Town. Just over a kilometre in length, this prestigious little stretch along the coastline of False Bay is where Rovos Rail has established its two five-star guesthouses – St. James Manor and St. James Seaforth.
