Overview of St James Manor

St James Manor is situated in the cosmopolitan harbour-side village of Kalk Bay along Cape Town’s False Bay coast. Built around a working harbour that has supported families of local fishermen for generations, the old colonial beach retreat is in its present day a mix of trendy art, luxury and tradition. Relax in the large swimming pool or on the tanning deck, or head down to the St James beach and tidal pool.

Both St James beach and the nearby Danger beach are ideally suited for bathing in the warm waters of False Bay. Enjoy an excursion to Fish Hoek and Simons Town, or spend time with the penguins at the world-renowned Boulders Beach. St James Manor is also just minutes away from trendy Kalk Bay, with its antique stores, restaurants and coffee shops.
