Our first time in Cape Town and we were made to feel as if we had arrived home from our long journey. Jonny looked after the car and Sharon mothered us. The breakfasts were tailored to our preferences and we ate them while enjoying a perfect view of the city. We were advised of the best restaurants and indeed our... More

We recently visited South Africa, travelling around Cape Town and travelling the Garden Route, staying in a range of BnBs and guest houses. Without doubt the best place we stayed was Redbourne Hilldrop in Cape Town. Firstly it was so conveniently located, near to the city, Waterfront, Table Cape and access to southern tourist routes and airport. Secondly it was... More

As much as I love Cape Town, for me, staying in Redbourne Hilldrop is the way to love the city even more. It's a place where you can feel at home and have all the space you need for yourself. I loved the house, the rooms and the tasty breakfast with the stunning view. But it's not only the house,... More

I was fortunate enough to find this gem of a guesthouse and spent an entire week there with my daughter. To begin with, and what makes this place so special are the owners, Sharon and Jonny - perfect hosts to say the least. They suggested where we go and what we do and booked our tours for us. Our bedroom... More

We (2 adults, 2 kids aged 10&12) stayed here for 5 nights. The bedrooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Pool is small but all you need to cool off - we were out and about most of the time so it fitted the bill perfectly. Breakfast is excellent with great range of continental and cooked to order hot food.... More

We (Family with a 12 yrs kid) stayed at Redbourne during our Cape Town visit in October 2013. I had decided on Oranjezicht / Redbourne mainly because of the view of the city at night and the view definitely was superb... whether the city view at breakfast time or the lighted city at night or the Table mountain hovering behind...

This is a stunning venue close to the city with warm helpful hosts. The mountain is right behind this home and I was able to walk safely around the beautiful serene suburb in the mornings. the bedroom was massive, the bed and linen high class and the view of the whole city is unbelievable.

Sharon and Jonny could not have done more to ensure that the start of our honeymoon in South Africa began in the best possible fashion. Nothing was ever too much trouble and they virtually arranged our entire itinerary while we were in Cape Town. There are fabulous views over the bay from the front and to Table Mountain from the...
