The Brandy Bus is an old-school bus that has been revamped into a cozy and distinct Bed & Breakfast Accommodation. Tucked away in the serene beautiful suburbs of Karen it is a perfect place to escape.
The Bus accommodation(10,000) per night, is close to many of Karen’s tourist attractions, popular restaurants, bars and easily accessible from both airports. There are two double beds upstairs and two small single beds downstairs that also serve as sofas. There is outdoor seating and an outdoor fireplace.
The double-decker bus has been completely redone to accommodate adventurous travelers looking for a different kind of overnight stay. No matter where you find yourself on the little bus, there are great views of the outdoors through the many windows lining the walls.
There is a fully-kitted kitchen with a microwave, gas cooker, utensils, and even some cooking basics. You can request a Cookswell Jiko to be set up outside for roasting and baking. The kitchen also features a French press, a charming coffee counter with bar stools and fresh flowers that delicately brighten up the room.
For more extensive meals, there is a round table outside on the patio which you can set up with candles and a fire by the furnace for those chilly Karen nights.
The bus can technically sleep six. There are two queen-sized beds upstairs separated by a curtain, and two sofa beds downstairs in the common area. Each bedroom has its own wonderfully quirky look and feels, from vibrant throw pillows to stacks of books – there’s something about this place that makes you feel right at home.
There is one bathroom with a hot running shower and a toilet. The bathroom is modern and resourceful and is everything you need for a short stay. If traveling at capacity, be ready for a queue to get to the bathroom.
Although it’s a compact space, the host has managed to fit everything you need into the bus. The charm of the bus comes from its global inspirations: from woven baskets originating in West Africa to Mexican tiles, it’s the little details that make it the unique and eccentric space that it is.
