Great views at breakfast of the Cape Town city bowl, hospitality with the personal touch and a yummy breakfast to write home about with real machine coffee served early to suit us! Sharon & Johnny are great attentive hosts, the guesthouse is conveniently situated in Oranjezicht a few minutes drive from the town centre. Would have preferred a double bed...

Redbourne is a great find, and Jonny and Sharon went out of their way to make sure our stay went well (even looking all over town to find a beach bucket and spade for our youngest). The atmosphere is relaxed and the service and breakfast top-notch.
