Lovely and well-located B&B in the middle of Oranjezicht, owned by German couple, Nikola and Christoph, who are really passionate about running their guest house. Warm and welcoming!
This district is located at the bottom of Table Mountain. The houses are very popular because of the view.
The perfect hike for a 360-degree view over the city. Great for sunrises and sunsets.
One of our favourite spots in Cape Town. Located on Kloof Street, this spot is suitable for all occasions – whether you want to enjoy a good breakfast, a tasty lunch, an afternoon coffee, or a romantic dinner in the lovely space.
A reservoir for trendy local labels, all made in South Africa.
The former Malay Quarter on Signal Hill is one of the most interesting parts of Cape Town with its multicultural flair and colourful houses.
Yours Truly has become to a Cape Town institution with its four shops dotted around the city. Your go-to whenever you want to grab a cup of coffee, have a relaxed beer, or enjoy a live music event.
Kloof Street is one of the most eclectic and coolest streets with a variety of great cafés, restaurants, bars, and beautiful boutiques.
This restaurant opened its doors in late 2013 and has become one of the hot spots in the city bowl. Apart from a daily changing menu, Black Sheep will pamper you with craft beer, great cocktails, and a well-curated wine list.
Kloof Street House is a hip place with a mix of Colonial and Victorian-style interiors and a beautiful garden. Perfect for a delicious brasserie-inspired dinner or fancy cocktails.
The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve is a must-do when in Cape Town. Head down to the farthest tip of the Cape Peninsula and enjoy the scenic drive.
Nestled in the glens of Table Mountain, this is a great spot to unwind and enjoy some picnic-inspired food.
A meat lover‘s heaven.
Jason Bakery offers a great selection of bread, tasty sandwiches, and great coffee.
Our thoughts about Cape Town
The photogenic scenery of the city, the scenic view from Table Mountain, the mix of ocean and city flair, the warm temperatures during European winter, the vibrant atmosphere of countless great restaurants and bars on Kloof street, the fantastic food, the light at sunset, the great vineyards around Stellenbosch, the Chapman’s Peak drive (open the windows & turn up the volume), the coconut bread at Manna Epicure Café, running along the beach of Noordhoek, the peacefulness of Scarborough village, watching the great windsurfers.
We mostly end up in our rental car listening classic old school hip hop. Beats like: Souls of Mischief, Dilated Peoples, Mos Def, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, DJ Kool, Wu-Tang Clan, The Sugarhill Gang, Cypress Hill, Kanye West, The Notorious B.I.G., etc.
Take a vacation into Our life
We are a family of four currently based in Berlin but we love to go on adventures near and far. Tanja (with both Swedish and Austrian roots) started Nectar & Pulse in 2010. Chris (originally from Hamburg) and Tanja met in 2011, fell in love, got married, and became parents to their beloved kids, Jonathan and Victor. Chris worked for BMW and holds a PhD in Mechanical Engineering but switched over to working at Nectar & Pulse in 2015. We are soulmates with a shared love for family, business, travel, transformation, fashion, music, exceptional hotels and wonderful places made with love. From luxury trips to getting up close and personal with nature and locals, we love it all. Come along and follow us! ☺ We love to show you the world from our perspective.
Oh so many, but mostly the tiny little moments in between, when we realise we’re living the life we always dreamed of.
People of all kinds. Smart people, happy people, passionate people, funny people, successful people, small people (=kids ☺ ), old and wise people, people who dare to be pioneers and do something really well or love to do it.
Travelling. Nature. Sex. Urbanity. Fashion. Photography. Music. Films.
Each other. Love.
Soulmates who just HAD to meet! Make babies, business and life together. ☺
Love. Family. Business. Wanderlust. Nectar&Pulse.
