We stayed at Bit o' bush overnight as our flight left early the next morning. Annette was a delight right from the booking to the transfer back to the airport the next morning. There were 4 of us arriving on different flights and Annette was helpful and accommodating. Our rooms were large, clean and good value. Guests were given a... More

Rooms are wonderful, Breakfast is delicious - you can't ask for anything more! See you next... More

We found Bit O' Bush on Trip Advisor and are so glad we decided to stay here for two nights on our way back to Tanzania from Cape Town and Durban. Annette is certainly in the right profession; she could not have been more helpful, ferrying us to nearby restaurants for dinner and setting us straight on the train to... More

Annette is the Absolute most sweetest Lady! Very organized and well maintained Guesthouse close to the International Airport and shuttle service was a plus. Did not have time to sit down for "Breakfast" everyone was raving about but the "beskuit" did me good!

My husband and I have stayed at Bit O' Bush on several occasions. Our clients and family (all from America) could not believe the how wonderful/comfortable and beautiful the home and gardens are. There are many B and B's to choose from in this area and we have been in many of them but this one by far "outshines" them... More

My parents and I stayed at Bit o Bush for just one night this past April. Annette is a lovely host. We suffered a mishap with our rental car leaving the airport, and had to return and get a new one, which delayed our arrival from dinner hour to bed time Annette was completely flexible--when we finally arrived, exhausted, frazzled,...

My wife and I stated at Bit O'Bush in August 2012. It is one of many homes near the airport converted to a B&B, but the quality of the workmanship made the whole place feel very close to a modern hotel. The owners live on site and take personal care of every guest. It is very convenient to the airport... More

I completely agree with the previous writer. What made this b&b extra special for my 8 year old daughter and me was Annette's warmth. She pampered us with fresh fruit(juice), time and conversation, rusks and shuttles to the airport without complaint about the late hour. Thank you very much!
