We stayed 10 days in May 2013 in the 4 Heavens Guest House and enjoyed the place, the accommodation as well as the very useful tips for trips in the cape area given by Melanie and Uwe. Very good and comfortable place serving as a perfect base for exploring this wonderful country.

All the amenities were there, but it's Melanie & Uwe's personalized touches to our stay that stood out.

With a couple of friends, my wife & I enjoyed 5 nights here in early September. Melanie & Uwe could not have been more accommodating, with nothing too much trouble for them. The house is very comfortable with large, clean, airy rooms (ideal in warmer months) & breakfasts really set us up for the days' outings. Melanie & Uwe offered... More

We stayed two weeks in the very nice "French Room" which is very comfortable and tastefully decorated with a very nice bathroom. We loved the Cape Dutch House which is equipped with stylish elegance. The House is beautifully situated at Somerset West and from here it is only a few kilometers to the beautiful wine region and its wine yards.... More

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... More
