About Basil's Boma
Basil's Boma is situated 45 minutes drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria at the edge of the Cradle of Humankind Heritage Site, in Skeerpoort on the Witwatersrand Mountain Range overlooking the Magaliesburg Mountains close to Hartbeespoort Dam.
Luxury Bush Chalet:
It is a unique, comfortable and exclusive non-pretentious ‘one of a kind’ bush chalet for two people. This romantic hide-away is known for morning walks with picnic basket or farmhouse breakfasts on the deck with freshly baked scones, cream and jam. Its private boma area and wooden decks boast breathtaking views of sunsets and the Magalisburg Mountains including hot air balloons and a large variety of birds’ indigenous to the area.
The unit comprises an exclusive and unique one bedroom unit with bathroom for two persons sharing. It has a King size bed, bush kitchen with bar fridge, private Boma area, small thatch bar, private splash pool and a jetmaster Hex Fire place.
During the 1990’s the shed on the property was used to manufacture pottery. The top portion of the shed has been converted into a flatlet. In keeping with the history of the building it was decided to use and recycle - wherever possible – items found in and around the shed. Bits and pieces of discarded pottery found was used as decoration in the small garden and inside the unit.
The unit comprises a combined lounge / dining room, fully equipped self catering kitchen, a main bedroom featuring a queen sized bed, bathroom with shower, basin and toilet, a separate toilet and basin, a small garden with patio and braai facilities. Enjoy fabulous views of the mountains and the emu enclosure. Very quiet and personal.
