The space
Renowned period home Rodwell House in St James, built for Randlord 'Lucky Jim' JB Taylor in 1935.

Hiding behind the heavy wooden gate in the thick stone walls of this gracious St James landmark is a magical Mediterranean-style garden. It lies at the foot of the mountains above St James beach. Once known as ‘Lancelevy’, before Randlord JB Taylor (or ‘Lucky Jim’, as he was known) virtually rebuilt the house in 1935, it stands proud today.

Today there are seven contemporary suites, providing guests with a complete contrast in mood and texture to the historical paneling and period details that hold sway on the ground floor below.
The large stainless steel industrial kitchen is now able to cope with events of up to 80 guests.

To add to Rodwell Houses charm there is a Mediterranean-style formal garden with matching pergolas and a 11metre pool. A 40 000-litre water reservoir was built under the terraces to divert the stream that made its way under the house. Today, mountain water feeds the pool, and a new stream tinkles down the side of the pergola, creating an enchanting walk up from the beach, especially when the garden is in bloom.
