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 back while the rooms were clean and spacious.
Sharon prepared us delicious breakfasts every morning and truly made us feel like family rather than guests (she even offered us, as dog lovers, their dog to walk).
Cannot recommend highly enough and just wish we had more time there.

We knew we made the right choice in staying at Redbourne Hilldrop when Johnny waited up until almost midnight to let us in (after we blew out a tire en route). Yes, the place is great: a 5-minute drive from city center, and the rooms have all the essentials, including a very comfortable bed. But what makes this place special are its hosts. We had great conversations with Johnny and Sharon over long breakfasts and an order-in pizza dinner with their family in the upstairs living room.

They even helped us replace our popped tire, calling local shops to get quotes and compare prices before sending us on our way.

Expect great hosts at Redbourne Hilldrop

As new visitors to Cape Town we could not have chosen a better place.We were here for 3 nights in February. Fantastic location for getting around. Sharon our host was so helpful with ideas, advice and doing bookings on the internet for us. Our room was airy and comfortable.Breakfast was great with a view to excite. All in all a good place to stay if a newcomer, as with Sharon's help one cannot fail to enjoy this wonderful city. Would definitely stay here again on our next visit.

A number of us descended on Sharon's B&B in February and had a fantastic stay. Sharon is an extremely welcoming host (even helping to provide props for the James Bond 40th birthday party that we were attending!) and the location of the B&B is ideal. There is a gorgeous view of the bay which you are able to enjoy from the breakfast bar every morning (the breakfasts are amazing). This leads to a much more informal and chatty atmosphere throughout your stay making it all the more special. The rooms are nice and airy and our room had a great view of the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the city
