Redhouse is a small village in the Eastern Cape of South Africa, located to the north of the city of Port Elizabeth. It is adjacent to a declared wetland reserve, soon hopefully to be a RAMSAR site.

The village is situated on the Zwartkops River, and is host to the Redhouse Yacht Club. There are over 10,000 water birds here, in the summer, including beautiful flamingos aplenty.[2] There are no shops or businesses in Redhouse, apart from two Bed & Breakfast establishments, and this village is truly a hidden gem. There is a lawn bowling club, a squash court, a sailing club, and quaint village hall. A superb destination, to relax and find peace.
