If you want a really personable stay in Cape Town then Redbourne is the place to go. Right from our arrival Jonny and Sharon went out of their way to help us plan our days in Cape Town and gave us great advice throughout our trip. From sticking around to receive our lost luggage, checking the weather for our trip... More

Sharon and John were extremely friendly and accommodating hosts. Nestled under table mountain the bnb offers amazing views over the city and is in a great location to explore Cape Town. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. We had A thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We were stunned by the fantastic views of the mountain and the city bowl. We enjoyed the warm welcome, the breakfast and especially the morning chats with Sharon and Jonny, It gave us a good impression of how Cape Town is for Capetonians.

Every time I go to Cape Town, I have to visit Jonny and Sharon. They are just wonderful people and offer the very best hospitality. The views over the breakfast 'nook' of Cape Town and Table Bay are unbelievable. Up on the front side rises Table Mountain. The rooms are clean and the bedding very comfortable. And the breakfast -... More

Comfortable, homely, rustic (and slightly dated) b&b in Cape Town. ideal for short stays, well located, fantastic hosts. Only drawback was limited common space. Little outdoor space and cramped living room. besides that, service was friendly and warm. Good value for money.

We highly recommend this establishment. It is centrally located with secure overnight parking. It felt more like being in a home than in a guesthouse with hosts, Jonny & Sharon catering to your every need.

We stayed for five nights and could not have found a better place. High above the city views from breakfast extended over the front and at the back the cable car up Table Mountain. What made the stay exceptional was the care, kindness and knowledge of our hosts who went way beyond the call of duty to help us feel... More

This was our first time in Cape Town and the location of this guesthouse was perfect. We were able to drive down the hill and park close to Company Gardens which allowed us to walk all over the city but be able to drive up the hill at the end of the day. Sharon and Johnny were great hosts, full... More

We were welcomed by Jordan, son of hosts, who did a magnificent intro to our guest house. Sharon and Jonny were the bestest of hosts and helped every which way, in fact they went out of their way to help us with a couple of things. Guest house is within easy access of all main roads and attractions, sitting at... More
