Meet The Classic Villas Team

The Classic Villas team is made up of passionate, luxury tourism industry experts, dedicated to helping you find the perfect rental for your holiday.

Nick Taylor

Managing Director

Nick was previously part of the team as Finance Manager for two and a half years and has taken on the role of MD in January 2010. His 10 years of experience within Hospitality and Finance, coupled with relevant qualifications has given him the right tools to be at the core of the business. After 5 years in London, Nick is happy to be home in Cape Town, and in his spare time he enjoys the odd round of golf and is an avid Sharks supporter!

Richard Marshall


After completing his B.Bus.Sci at UCT Richard moved to the UK to pursue a career in investment banking. Three years, and many trips, later his love of Cape Town and the deep blue sea got the better of him, and he returned to South Africa. A little while later Nox Rentals was born. Richard spent 6 years hard at work building the foundations of the business, before handing over the reins to Nick Taylor (our MD). He is no longer involved operationally but is still actively involved strategically.

Richard now spends most of his time working on growing the business, but when not hard at work, you'll find him with his family, or on the ocean on his surfski or kiteboard.

Tamsyn Burt


Tamsyn joined the accounts department in January of 2012 and soon proved herself an asset to every department with her willingness to help out wherever she can. Now affectionately known as the 'Random Task Manager', she has become the go-to person for almost anything nox-office related. When she's not manning the nox fort, Tamsyn will admit to being an well seasoned expert at the traditional South African braai but adds that she enjoys cooking in general. Her friendly, outgoing and passionate character has brought a great buzz to the team and we are very lucky to have her.

Kerri-Ann Burt


I'm 18 and fresh out of school, I have taken a very big leap into the ''REAL WORLD'' and am loving it very much. I'm vibrant and absolutely love working with people. I enjoy shopping and socializing with friends in many different environments: around the fire, at sporting matches and many others.
