Thank you Alta and team for a great stay. We feel as if we made new friends for life. The days were started with a lovely breakfast served by smiling staff. The beautiful garden and house made a lasting impression. A weekend to remember!

I took my wife here for our anniversary, I'd planned a busy day out at the State Theatre followed by dinner at La Madeleine. We thoroughly enjoy staying at Bohemian House, such a fantastic upper class place run by stunning people. Breakfast was outstanding. We will be back and the next time we will be having dinner there. Thank you... More

Stayed here during my visit to South Africa for work and I must say that photos really don't do enough justice to this place. Both the outdoors and indoors create such an authentic atmosphere that transfers you to the Bohemian era. Every room is decorated in a different spirit and every corner of the guesthouse has something very beautiful to... More

I spent several nights at the Bohemian earlier this month. It was fabulous! The property reminded me of a luxury Italian villa. The rooms and common areas are beautifully decorated with antiques and paintings from all over the world. There is a beautiful garden courtyard with a pretty fountain. I loved the small pool area which was perfect for relaxing... More

We visited for a weekend in November 2015 as a birthday surprise. The house has elements of Morocco and East-Africa. Wood, oil paintings, and kelims adorn the walls or floors to create a plush ambience dulling all the suburban sounds. Alta, our host, greeted us warmly at the front door upon arrival at this secure guest house. The gardens are... More
