The 4Heaven guesthouse was an excellent choice to complete our garden route tour. We stayed 4 nights in the African Suite, a wonderfully secluded and tastefully decorated modern room under the eaves of a traditional Cape Dutch house. From its private wooden terrace you have stunning views of the Helderberg and can enjoy the beautiful gardens. Melanie and Uwe are great and caring hosts, and their staff was very friendly and helpful, too. Breakfast was delicious with your choice of eggs. In order to accommodate my dietary requirements even homemade gluten-free bread was offered. The guesthouse is ideally located in an upmarket residential area, not far away from many attractions (including golf courses) and the Cape Town international airport.

We booked this Guesthouse after reading the reviews on trip advisor, I booked our holiday around this Guesthouse as it was only available for 6 nights so book well in advance! It was better than we could have ever imagined! This was our best Holiday ever. The Stuff was very friendly and helpful. Please read all of the excellent reviews to get a flavour of how amazing this place is.

It's a wonderful place! If you want to visit the wineyards in Sommerset and/or Capetown and don't want to waste your time on traffic, this is the best place to stay!!
We stayed 3 nights in the African Suite.
Since we arrive, Uwe and Melanie were fantastic. They help us with good tips telling us where to go and what to do.

Thanks Uwe and Melanie!

We spend 16 nights in 4 heaven and loved it. Our 5 year old son loved the pool and the family unit and the suite are both a good place to stay as a family.
Uwe and Melanie are nice, kind, always there to help and realy good and warm hosts. They let u feel so welcome and know a lot of nice trips to do and realy nice restaurants in the area. Definitely a good place to relax and u should not mis it if ur in the area!!!
