“Tranquility and gathering in the middle of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

Our favorite thing about 4 Living is it's encircling established gardens and sprawling verandah and lawn which made the perfect place to come and relax after a long day out in the city. The location is ideal for those looking to enjoy the trendier walking neighborhood of Parkhurst and the nearby Rosebank Mall. Lots of great restaurants only a quick drive or cab away.
The house feels secure in a relaxed way, it managed to be secluded and safe without feeling like a fortress.
Staff was helpful and attentive and a pleasure to deal with.
We booked the back bedroom which it's two sides all glass views of the middle of the back garden and it was quiet, lovely, and romantic.

The key to this lovely place which is perfect for a retreat for an organisation is the incredible, incredible staff. Their cooking, their service, the way they remain present yet not on top of you as a guest is much appreciated. The space is lovely and it's a restful respite. Thank you all!
