Set high on the ridge in Pretoria's Waterkloof area, Bohemian House is a harmonious balance between the warm, familiar atmosphere of a much-loved  family home - and the comfort and services of a luxury hotel.

The original house was designed by the famous architect Christopher Alexander - and its high ceilings and windows flood the house with sunshine by day and moonlight by night.  Its owners are avid travellers and it shows in the many treasures from around the world, lovingly collected over the years.

Each room has its own private entrance.  Each is beautifully decorated according to its particular theme, with double-louvered doors opening onto garden or balcony.  Each one is designed to be totally enchanting and captivating!

It's perfect for a tranquil break and an ideal base for business executives.  Waterkloof is where you'll find all the embassies and consulates.  It's close to most of the office parks - and the best golf courses in Pretoria.  The emphasis is on tranquility ... and the little, unexpected extras.

The Inspired by world travel, Bohemian House is a unique interpretation of a classic, romantic villa and a 5-star guesthouse.

There are 10 rooms to choose from: with appetising decor themes like the Africa-Colonial Suite, the Egypt Room, Moroccan Room, Botero Romantica, the New York-New York suite, the Vienna Room with its own private garden and the Amsterdam Rijksmuseum room where you can enjoy Rembrandt and other Dutch pieces.  Each is furnished and decorated with cherished items and ornaments collected over many years.

Individual DSTV, heated towel rails, extra-length beds, bar fridges, tea & coffee facilities and internet service are some of the many facilities provided.

Why visit Bohemian House
Best Features: Incredible attention to detail.  It's as if there's a plot afoot to cater to your every whim!  Sincere, warm hospitality.  Excellent location for business and if you need to visit embassies and consulates.

Bear In Mind: The atmosphere is quiet, relaxed and tranquil.  Not really child/teenager friendly.
