  • Nox Rentals and the Stompie

    Yesterday (3 March 2015) Nox Rentals felt the full power of the internet when a photo of one of our bakkies was posted with the claim that the driver had just thrown a lit cigarette out of the window.

    The driver behind our vehicle was furious and decided to take a photo and post it on the internet. The photo went viral and we quickly heard about it via Twitter and via friends of the company.

    Facebook post

    We were appalled to hear of the behaviour of our staff member and quickly set about a disciplinary action. We also decided to donate R10,000 to Volunteer Fire Services as a show of good faith.

    The employee in question insists that he threw bubblegum out of the car (totally unacceptable as well). He did also volunteer to spend the whole of yesterday evening helping out the fire fighters in Tokai.

    Juan Firefighting

    We are a company that loves Cape Town, loves nature and does our best to help our guests experience the very best that Cape Town has to offer. We condemn anyone throwing anything from a vehicle window, lit cigarette, bubblegum or anything else.

    We hope our donation goes some way to help support the fire fighters who are giving so much time & sweat to the cause, and we’ll do whatever we can to educate our staff and visitors about the dangers of wildfires.

    Thank you all for your concern.

    PS. Some people have asked for proof that we  actually made a donation, so we have decided to post the proof of payment below.

    The Camps Bay Annual Gala Dinner

    On Thursday 7 November our sales and accounts ladies had the pleasure of attending the third annual Gala fundraiser hosted by the Camps Bay Business Forum at the Bay Hotel’s Rotunda.

    The theme this year was “Paradise” – celebrating the incredible natural beauty and diversity of Camps Bay, the decor was magnificent and there was even a glamorous prize auction and a line up of top class entertainment that had the Rotunda rocking!

    All Gala proceeds will support  the successful social upliftment initiative in partnership with the Haven Night Shelter, as well as enhanced beachfront security.

    We were treated to a gourmet feast, with canapés from Paranga; starters courtesy of Mezepoli; a main course feast from The Grand; delicious desserts from Blues, all paired with world class wines.

    The top spots for sundowners at the end of a sizzling hot summers day in Cape Town

    sunset camps bay
    As we wade into glorious warm summer in Cape Town, locals and tourists alike look for a spot to quench their thirst at the end of a blissful summers day. There are few pleasures more satisfying than sipping on a fine Chardonnay or a colour pop sugar surged something, while a magnificent sunset is painted in the skies above you.

    The Grandcapriceparanga
    Camps Bay’s Seaside Strip
    The palm-lined strip of Camps Bay is very likely the best spot in Cape Town to watch the sun drop into the ocean. The strip also happens to be the natural habitat of Cape Town’s young, rich and sexy, so be ready for some prime “people watching”. Camps Bay is littered with great little bars and restaurants but here are some suggestions to get you started; The Grand Beach Café, Caprice, Paranga, Kove and Mezepoli.

    Sea Point and Mouille Point
    For a more laid-back atmosphere you could head just around the corner from Camps Bay to Sea Point and Mouille Point for a lazy stroll along the promenade and a cold Glass if wine. Look out for the following spots; Winchester Mansions Hotel, La Vie Cafe, Radisson Blu Waterfront Hotel (great live jazz on some evenings), Wafu (great sushi), The Grand at the Beach in Granger Bay.

    However if you’d like to slip out from under the mountain and get a better look at it from Blouberg you’ll find relaxed beach side watering holes with sublime panoramic views of Table Mountain, Robben Island and the endless Atlantic ocean. You need to visit On the Rocks (right on the water’s edge) and Blue Peter.


    False Bay
    If you head around to false bay, you may not be able to see the sun setting on the sea, but thats no reason not to have a drink at any of the following gems; The Brass Bell in Kalk Bay, Polana, Cape to Cuba and Cafe Olympia (best bread in Cape Town)

    We Welcome Abigail King from Inside The Travel Lab to #LoveCapeTown

    Nox Rentals was proud to host international and local bloggers for the second year in a row for the award winning #LoveCapeTown campaign dreamed up by the wonderfully creative folks over at Cape Town Tourism.

    In 2012, the #lovecapetown blogger hosting programme contributed to Cape Town Tourism winning a Travel + Leisure SMITTY Award (Social Media in Travel + Tourism Awards) in the category Best Overall Use of Social Media and we were very proud to be a part of the process, having hosted some fantastic bloggers at our Gorgeous Apostle’s Edge.

    Apostle's Edge

    Apostle’s Edge

    This year we had the privilege of hosting some interesting personalities from different corners of the world as well as some local favorites. The first to arrive was Abigail King from Inside The Travel Lab (UK), she is a phenomenal travel and lifestyle blogger, you can follow her on twitter @insidetravellab .

    Oceans View

    Oceans View

    Abi stayed at Ocean’s View in upper Sea Point for her first couple of days in Cape Town. The reason we chose Ocean’s View for Abi was to give her the opportunity to experience how a local Capetonian would live here in Cape Town, also offering a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Seaboard. She was then joined by our very own Mzansi Girl, Meruschka @MzansiGirl and Carol T. More from Follow the Colours (Brazil) @follow_colours .

    The three of them spent a couple of nights in Six Selbourne before moving over to Hamaya in Camps Bay. Abi has a fresh and honest style and what she has written about South Africa so far is optimistic and colorful, definitely worth a read – I had a proud swell in my chest reading about the diversity that Cape Town displays and how our city represents the rest of our country.

    We would be very glad to have Abi back in Cape Town and we look forward to reading about her future adventures.

    Spectacular Clifton Villa


    Clifton Villa is a time machine to the opulent eccentricities of the late 80’s and early 90’s. This Villa is accessed by a double funicular trip up the hill in Clifton and somehow those 2 funiculars felt like 2 mini-time machines.


      You can almost hear Julio Iglesias echoing as you walk into the house, marble and wood everywhere, it feels rich and inviting.   I have always had a bit of a thing for marble floors and bathrooms, they remind me of a time of cool, a time of yellow sun visors and high leg tan lines accented by anything gold and Dior, white wine spritzers, red nails and tanned bodies sporting Kappa T-Shirts.   It’s so quiet up there, but somehow you can still hear the ocean crashing against the shore somewhere.

    #BraaiDay: The #LoveCapeTown Way – Cape Town Tourism

    On Tuesday 24 September, 2013, the weather played along beautifully and the smell of good old, South African braai meat was in the air all around Cape Town. If there’s one thing South Africans love to do, it’s braai, and by “braai” we obviously mean barbeque. What better way to celebrate our heritage than by introducing our #lovecapetown visitors to our  proudly South African braai culture?

    Cape Town’s premier luxury property agency, Nox Rentals, invited us to celebrate at one of their spectacular Camps Bay properties; Hamaya House. With an unparalleled view of the sea and a bar stocked with Grolsch beers and Simonsig wine, the only thing left to organize was the music. So we invited local indie band Ashtray Electric (follow them on Twitterto find out where their next gigs are) to bring their accoustic guitars along and treat our guests to the best that the local music scene has to offer.

    Locals were invited to enjoy the sunshine with us and share the #lovecapetown spirit across Facebook and Twitter. Follow our international visitors @insidetravellab @follow_colours as they explore the Mother City and get to know the city through the eyes of our locals: @missemmajude @guy_with_camera @brandslut_ @whatmyboyfriendwore @famkek@silverstreak2ov @lizetheunicorn @johannschwella @mshoneybeect @rudicronje and me, @natalieroos.
