Many, many thanks to Lee, Dr. Marianne, Maggie and everyone at 4Living Guest House for an absolutely fabulous stay. We were a family of 10, spread over 3 generations, arriving at different times on different days, and everything went as smoothly as possible. This is the first time we had booked via Air BnB for a family vacation and we weren't quite sure what we would get. While we were expecting something basic (which would have been sufficient for us) we were welcomed into superb luxury. Lee, Maggie and the full time staff catered to all our needs and beyond. We keep kosher, and they went out of their way to ensure that we had a plentiful, completely kosher breakfast every day. I heartily recommend the 4Living Guest House to anyone traveling to Johannesburg. It's a 5* hotel plus!
This well kept and very comfortable house is situated in a secure residential neighborhood. It offers many amenities as well as top notch staff i.e. Lee & Maggie that went the extra mile to make our stay a great one. We used Uber and got to know some of the drivers who chauffeured us around town for reasonable fees. There are many good restaurants at a nearby mall called Melrose Arch that is about a mile away.
Dr. Marianne, Lee, Bungi and Maggie are AMAZING. We felt so well taken care of. Breakfast every morning was homemade and delicious! It was very easy to get around town from our location. The house is FANTASTIC. We spent most of our time on the beautiful back veranda. The rooms were spacious and the beds quite comfy. You have 24 hour access to the staff at the house which turned out to be quite a luxury. We were a large group (10 of us) and everyone loved the stay.
What a lovely, well-maintained, and convenient home away from home! My family and I stayed in Marianne's guesthouse for four nights. We were absolutely delighted from the minute we walked in and over the course of our stay enjoyed the surrounding beauty and our ability to enjoy all that Joburg has to offer from this fantastic home base. And while I usually book single family homes via Airbnb, the experience of a guesthouse with such gracious hosts, warm and welcoming staff, and wonderful fellow guests, makes traveling so much more enjoyable and memorable. If you have the chance to stay here, don't hesitate!
I spent a wonderful week at this peaceful, beautiful guest house. I was royally looked after but also given plenty of space when I just wanted to chill out having previously spent a mad week in Cape Town watching a test match. My bedroom was spacious & cool. Thee garden & swimming pool were heaven. Thank you all very much.
