Our family has stayed at Bay Tree every year for the past 10 years. Renee and her husband Fred with one cook prepare the most ample, best tasting, healthful, breakfasts each morning at a time of our choosing. All the help are clean, helpful and cheerful. The rooms, linens, bathrooms, sitting room, and breakfast tables are clean and cheerful. We always know that the food is excellent and clean. We also enjoy free Wi-Fi, and the assistance of Renee and Fred for any problems we have faced in our travels around South Africa, for example getting the rental car with automatic shift that we prepaid before traveling to Pretoria, or having Renee take my husband to the doctor after he fell on steps at the Voortrekker Monument. The flower gardens, cared for by one gardener, are always lovely no matter the time of year. Renee and Fred treat us like family and we always feel at home whenever we stay at Bay Tree. We come to do research at Kruger National Park.

Room tip: All rooms are quiet and on one floor.

Wonderful guest house situated in a convenient location. Room is spacious and clean and the bed is divinely comfortable. Wifi works well and parking onsite is secured. Fred and Renee are the perfect hosts and great company to be with. Attentive to all our needs and went the extra mile to ensure that we have a great and safe stay. The daily breakfast prepared by Fred is sumptuous and delicious. Highly recommended!

Have just left the Bay Tree after a great week in Pretoria - daughter played in junior ITF tennis tournament and Bay Tree is ideally located for the tennis facilitity. We had a fantastic, spacious room at the Bay Tree that was immaculately clean and super comfortable (a home away from home). Renee and Fred are great hosts and nothing is too much bother. We'l be back!

We found the rooms to be very spacious and immaculately clean. The owners were extremely friendly are most accommodating, going the "extra mile" to ensure our stay will be a well treasured memory. We would definitely use this establishment again if we are in the area.
