Sharon and Jonny were the perfect hosts. They were a mine if information about the local area and very sociable, which is important to many travellers, especially solo ones who like to chat with locals.

Great place to stay if you want a more personal touch to your visit to Cape Town. The hosts Jonny and Sharon are absolutely warm and friendly, and they make the best English breakfast I've had in Cape Town so far. The home is charming, with breathtaking views of Table Mountain and the sea. The bedroom is spacious and has a verycomfortable bed. There is also a pool for the hot summer days on-site, and an on-site honesty bar for all those last minute drinking needs. Highly recommended if you need a quiet calm space to rest in Cape Town!

Everything about the place was 5 stars. Starting from the hosts Sharon and Johnny, the lovely home, the location and the view. Sharon and Johnny were like family and gave us a lot of suggestions on what to do around Cape Town. I enjoyed my morning walk cum trek with Johnny and the stories. There is free roadside parking so that was definitely a plus. And if you wish to Uber around Cape the location is just within 15 mins to the V&A. The view was great with a majestic view of Table Mountain and also Signal Hill Definitely my first choice if I visit Cape Town again

My partner and I stayed for 4 nights in early September. We were given a very warm welcome and felt instantly at home. Sharon and Jonny are truly hospitable and went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed. The guest house is homely with lovely views of Capetown and the mountain and we were extremely comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent. The guest house is very well located in a lovely quiet neighbourhood with easy access to the city and surrounds. We would throughly recommend Redbourne and would certainly stay again when next in Cape Town.

A great hotel in a super location with the kindest hosts, and a lovely breakfast overlooking the waterfront and the bay. Room was large, clean with a large stylish bathroom. Would definitely recommend as a great choice for exploring Cape Town and the area.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Sharon and Jonny at their wonderful guest house! This was our third visit having first been there back in 1997 shortly after they first started running the guest house! Lovely accommodation at a great locaton and with splendid views from the breakfast room and wonderful hospitality! We very much look forward to our next visit whenever that might be ... but, hopfully, soon! Thank you very much Sharon and Jonny, this was a great way to start our latest fantastic South African holiday! Now back again in chilly, summery Scotland!

We only spent one night there - but I wish we were there for longer! The venue is beautiful, the rooms tastefully decorated, comfortable and you have everything you need at hand. The aircon in the room was a bonus as it was quite cold! Added to that, the solar availability and having access to wifi was great as we needed to be connected for conference calls. Jonny and Sharon are incredible hosts, making you feel like you're at home, nothing is too much and they go above an beyond to accommodate your requests. The breakfast that came included the next morning was next level and a beautiful view from the breakfast nook made it even more special. I have never experienced a spread like that at a B&B! When back in Cape Town - this will deifnitely be our go to place to stay. I would recommend this spot without hesitation. It is also situated in a nice quite part of the city with Table Mountain as the backdrop on one side, and the city scape on the other side. It is a quick 10 min drive to the City Centre. The pool looked very inviting too but I will leave that for a future visit in summer, lol. Thanks for your hospitality Jonny and Sharon - we had an amazing stay.
