    Camps Bay is famous for its beaches, with miles of white sand for sunbathing, and safe, clean water for swimming. There are some fantastic dive spots nearby, too, with numerous shipwrecks to explore.

    Shoppers can enjoy the local markets, which sell everything from food and drink to quirky souvenirs. Walking in the nearby mountains is a memorable experience, and rewards the energetic with sea views and sightings of wildlife.

    The view from Camps Bay takes in several of Cape Town’s famous geographical sites, including the distinctively shaped Lion’s Head peak and the mountain range known as the Twelve Apostles.

    At the end of the day, why not sit back with a glass of local wine and experience some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world?

    Self-catering apartments and villas of all sizes are available in Camps Bay. Share a two or three bedroom apartment with friends, take the whole family for a stay in a luxury villa, or share a romantic getaway in a penthouse made for just you two.

    Staying in a self-catering property gives you the freedom to get up and go to bed when you like, or even not to get up at all and appreciate the shimmering Atlantic Ocean while still snuggling. Have meals whenever you want, or prepare a picnic for your day at the beach in a fully equipped kitchen, from ingredients discovered at the local market.

    A private villa can be a peaceful haven away from the holiday crowds, yet just a short stroll from the action.

    What to do in Cape Town on holiday

    The most popular holiday destination in the Republic of South Africa, Cape Town enjoys some breathtaking views and a charming countryside, as well as a thriving city with bustling night life.

    As such, there is a huge variety of things to do, so no visitor will feel that they have run out of attractions when on holiday or enjoying a few extra days of relaxation in luxury accommodation after a business trip.

    It is worth noting that Cape Town is not only the most visited city in South Africa, but of the entire continent.

    Table Mountain

    Majestic Table Mountain

    Perhaps the city’s international image is most associated with Table Mountain which is recognised the world over. The mountain remains one of Cape Town’s major attractions and few travellers spend time in the city without taking time to visit it.

    Dominating the city’s skyline, Table Mountain is easily accessible via its Aerial Cableway which ascends its slopes. Many people also trek up the mountain on organised hikes and these can sometimes be combined with an abseiling session which, given the heights involved, is not for the faint hearted.

    Blue Flag beaches

    Cape Town’s beaches are also well worth visiting and many can be discovered in the course of just one day – each offering something unique. For those seeking a section of beach close to luxurious accommodation and top-quality apartments and villas, then Camps Bay and Clifton is worth seeking out.

    Infamous Waterfront

    If you like to shop till you drop, the ever-popular V&A Waterfront is another superb place to put into your itinerary. It affords great views of the Atlantic Ocean and the harbour has something of an old world charm dating back, as it does, to the mid-Victorian era.

    World class vineyards

    Another thing that Cape Town is world famous for is its exceptional wine making industry. The fertile land that surrounds the city is ideal for growing a wide variety of grapes and Cape Winelands have a reputation for quality produce that is well-deserved.

    As such, wine routes have sprung up which mean that travellers can easily navigate between wine making estates to sample the best that Cape Town has to offer. Independent travellers can usually just turn up so long as it is not grape picking season, but many people prefer the comfort of an organised tour which means they don’t have to drive.

    Sublime spas

    For travellers who are looking for some rest and relaxation during their stay, then Cape Town has all the top-quality spas that you would expect from a sophisticated city.

    Many of the five star spas in the city are part of luxury hotels, but you don’t need to be a guest to book yourself in as a day visitor or even for a one-off treatment. Some of the best ones are by the waterfront and the relaxing atmosphere is augmented by the rolling waves of the sea.

    Fine dining

    Cape Town also offers a fine dining experience in many of its restaurants which can be the perfect way of rounding off a day of pampering.

    With so much on offer, booking the right sort of luxury accommodation in Cape Town is essential, so it is well worth checking the listings to find something suitable in the heart of the city.

    With the majesty of Table Mountain or the shimmering waters and golden beaches that distinguish the coastline at Clifton and Camps Bay, the view from one of the villas or apartments available for rental is close to a spiritual experience.

    Mountainous Magic

    Table Mountain is the sight which is most familiar to residents and visitors to Cape Town. Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles, however, form part of a spectacle keeps people returning to this city year after year.

    Luxury apartments and villas such as Vivid in Bakoven provide residents with a dream-like view of the mountain range, as well as of the Atlantic Ocean rolling gently onto the warm white sands of the beaches.

    The spaciousness of the Vivid villa and its superbly equipped entertainment and utility areas make for an unforgettable experience. A duplex penthouse, this villa has three bedrooms and a spacious kitchen with all essentials.

    The open-plan living and dining room is filled with light, due to both exterior walls being glass. Bright wood flooring and uplifting colours all around create a laidback but sophisticated atmosphere.

    Outside, there is a large roof deck on the upper level, and below a gorgeous patio with a seating area and a sizable pool will offer plenty of reasons to enjoy the weather.

    It is only one of many options that invite discerning visitors to share in the stunning aesthetics provided by upmarket luxury self-catering accommodation in Cape Town.

    Beauty for Business or Leisure

    Cape Town’s spectacular landscape forms the perfect backdrop when new business connections need to be solidified, and the Camps Bay apartments and villas provide everything necessary to impress.

    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.
