Jonny and Sharon are amazing hosts - they really helped us to make the most of our visit to Cape Town with tips and advice. Their beautiful property is in a fabulous location - we will definitely return.

This guesthouse is brilliantly positioned for visiting the attractions of Cape Town. The owners are wonderfully friendly and happy to recommend and arrange restaurants, trips etc. The four of us (two couples) would definitely recommend it and would happily stay there again.

Extremely friendly, helpful and welcoming family. Great views as noted by others - also enjoyed a dip in the pool on arrival. Good breakfast overlooking Cape Town. You probably do need a car/taxi to get to the City Centre/Table Mountain/beach as the Guesthouse is 'up the hill' but a really good base for spending time in this fascinating City.

We stayed 4 nights at the Redbourne Hilldrop and couldn't fault it. Sharon and Johnny are brilliant hosts and by the end of our stay we felt as though we were staying with friends. Our room was comfortable and extremely spacious, with views down across Capetown. Sharon gave us lots of help and advice, asking us what we wanted to... More

We stayed at Redbourne Hilldrop for 4 nights on arrival in SA. Sharon and Jonnie were simply brilliant, offering advice about where to go and what to do so that we had some of the most memorable and varied days of our lives! Great views, over Cape Town at breakfast and towards Table Mountain from our room, also helped to... More

Sharon & Jonny are excellent hosts and went out of their way to ensure we made the most of our short visit to their home town. We planned to go to Table mountain (a short walk from the guest house), Robben Island, Kirstenbosch, and the V&A. In addition on the day we arrived, Sharon persuaded us to take the red... More

Hats off to Jonny and Sharon! Redbourne Hilldrop offers quality all the way. The views are superb. The guestrooms are spacious, tastefully furnished and comfortable. Breakfast is a la carte, impeccably served, and timeous. And there is no hesitation in going the extra mile to facilitate tours, meals, transport needs - in fact, nothing is too much trouble when it... More

We needed accommodation for one night only, close to the city bowl. Redbourne was a great choice: clean, spacious room, with lots of little extras like free sherry, and a chocolate on the pillow. Wonderful host and super breakfast!

This was my third stay at Redbourne Hilldrop and will not be the last. The highlight of Redbourne are the owners--Sharon and Jonny helped us in so many ways I can't even count them--organizing our transport from the airport and to the university, making reservations for restaurants and massages, giving us a ride when it took too long to get...
