About Buttons Self Catering and BnB

Buttons Self Catering and BnB is located in Despatch, just outside Port Elizabeth. It has two up-market, fully equipped self-catering apartments. Both regularly receive 5 Star reviews from guests - this means much more to us that any rating from any other source as it comes from our guests and shows us that we are doing something right. This is something that no outside source can provide.


Buttons Won:
Buttons Won, so called because this unit was our first and it soon became a winner, is a compact, fully equipped self-contained apartment. One enters the unit directly from the under-cover, off-road, secure parking space into the main bed/sitter. Here you will find a comfortable queen-size bed, an armchair, built-in dressing table with a hair dryer, flat-screen TV with the full DSTV package, a table and chairs seating four comfortably and, for the very hot days and nights, an air-conditioner.

This unit has uncapped, 10mbps Wi-Fi to keep our guests in touch.

In the next room there is a double bunk for the kids and the young-at-heart and the ½ bathroom leads off here.

The bathroom has a basin, shower and toilet. Soap, hand-soap, shampoo and towels are provided.

Next there is the kitchen with all crockery, cutlery and cookware as well as a kettle, microwave oven and a two-plate gas stove. We do washing and drying by arrangement and for your ironing convenience there is an iron and ironing board at your disposal.

Buttons Too:
There are two entrances both leading to the main living/sleeping/ dining area with a fully equipped, open-plan kitchen.

The kitchen has built-in cupboards, a stove, extractor fan/light, fridge/freezer, kettle, microwave oven, and toaster.

The dining area is served by a large round table seating 6 to 8 persons.

The living area comprises of a comfortable sofa and two sleeper-couches which can, when needed, be used as double beds. The TV has the full DSTV package and the uncapped, 10mbps Wi-Fi has a special booster for excellent signal.

There is a sliding door to the pool (presently not in service due to water restrictions) and the braai area.

Off the main area, via a short passage there are two private bedrooms.

The first, the master bedroom has a slightly larger than usual Queen-size bed, built-in wardrobe and dressing table with a hair dryer for the ladies’ convenience.

Opposite the master bedroom there is a smaller bedroom which presently has a double bunk and a single bed. The single bed can be converted to a second double bunk increasing the number of guests sharing this room to four.

The bathroom is spacious and boasts a large shower, bath, washbasin, toilet and washing machine. The iron and ironing board are in the kitchen.

Hand-soap, toilet soap and shampoo are provided as well as bath and hand towels and face cloths.


Breakfast is available on request at an additional cost.

Verified reviewvery good

Hospitality par excellence! Ron goes out of his way to make you welcome, & the call while we were on the way there put us at ease that we'd made the right choice. Buttons is not pretentious and is what it is a comfortable, clean home away from home. The wi-fi speed was excellent, and a full DSTV bouquet unheard of in similar establishments. The price is very reasonable and we had a very enjoyable stay.
