  • This is a fantastic home set back from the busy main road but close enough to the water that you can hear the waves if you leave the doors open at night. Views from the top floor balcony are exceptional.

    We enjoyed having our breakfast on the front verandah and the sheltered/private garden area was a favorite for an afternoon cup of tea or a beer.

    The furnishings are wonderful and a real step up from what you would normally find in a holiday home.

    The caretaker is a friendly and very helpful man who spends a few hour each day at the house cleaning and making sure that all is in order.

    The beaches are easily accessible and the walk into the Kalk Bay shopping area takes about 15 minutes.

    Whilst we did not find this to be a real issue, mobile and internet coverage is intermittent.

    The host was pleasant to deal with and made our settling in very quick and easy.

    Overall a great stay and we will be looking to re-book again at some stage in the future.

  • Our stay in Michael's lovely home in St. James was truly one of the highlights of our trip to South Africa. Glorious views, extreme comfort and proximity to great beaches, hikes, and restaurants close by in addition to the hospitality of Michael, his family and their local caretaker made it very special. Our questions were answered easily despite the family not living onsite. My concerns over safety, noise from the local railway and heat were totally unfounded. We loved "living local" and exploring the Cape area. Hanging out in the garden or on the balcony, and sleeping with doors open to the sound of the waves are wonderful memories. We would go back in a heart beat!

I am a young professional working in South Africa. I occasionally am away - and so my room in Johannesburg is available - and I also have places for you to stay in Durban and Cape Town. Each is very different and comes at a different price. Should you want to know more about me or about South Africa, send me a message.
