Elegant Villa In Lovely Garden Setting
We loved staying in this villa, just a 10 minute bus ride from the old town of Dubrovnik. The owners were welcoming, generous and helpful. The house is beautifully appointed.
The house is a small villa set in an immaculate garden. Something of a jewel box, its interior is beautifully crafted. Upstairs are 2 main bedrooms (one with terrace), a bunkroom and two bathrooms; down the beautiful staircase is the kitchen (with pantry), a dining room and adjoining living room with a sunroom, and a toilet. Outside is the garden, with a range of areas so that at any time of day there is a perfect place, shaded or sunny, for sitting, lounging, or eating. At the lower ground level is a basic small flat which includes the laundry.
The villa is on side of the Lapad peninsula looking over toward Gruž. Nearby are shops including a cafe, a small supermarket and an excellent butcher; a bit further away is a small fresh food market, a larger supermarket and other shops and restaurants. There are 2 excellent restaurants a short walk away. A twenty minute walk, or a bus trip (with a change of buses), or a short water taxi ride, will bring you to the main fresh food and fish market at Gruž There is also a pedestrianised walk lined with (touristy) bars and cafes leading over the hill to "Sunset Beach" with its numerous swimming places. There are several bus stops nearby the villa, including for the most frequent bus which runs every 10 or 15 minutes during the day and late into the evening, and which will take you into the old, walled town in 10 minutes (allow a bit more time in peak periods, when the bus can be crammed full of both locals and tourists).
The owners Iris and Boris were both unobtrusive and immediately available whenever wanted. Their advice on where to eat and what to see or do is to be taken and trusted; and their kindness is extraordinary.
Boris and Iris couldn’t have been nicer!!!
We absolutely loved staying there!! The home was very lovely and Boris and Iris were very welcoming and made us feel welcome. We wish we could have stayed longer. You won’t regret spending time in this peaceful retreat. It is well located to so many sights.
La Bohême is an oasis. Outside the walled city of Dubrovnik, located in a quiet part of the larger city, sits a beautifully restored Art Deco home that is surrounded by lush gardens. This is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the setting. All of your needs have been thoughtfully considered...excellent beds, restful décor, goodies in the frig, and .... Iris and Boris....who graciously welcome you, provide knowledgeable guidance, and who take a personal interest in your stay. “This is your home”, they tell you and we believed it. In a brief 5 days, we felt like family....sharing histories, interests, exchanging perspectives. While they are readily available on site, Iris and Boris were never intrusive, quite the contrary. There are fruit trees, loads of herbs, flowers and greenery that surround this walled city estate. Public transportation is nearby as are many fine restaurants and beaches. We highly recommend La Bohême. Rebecca who is their contact person is immediately responsive to each of our questions and requests. You will not be disappointed.
San Francisco couple
Faultless perfection and hosted by thooughly beautiful people
From the moment we arrived to when we left Villa Boheme and Iris & Boris was perfect, and I mean perfect. Iris and Boris met us on arrival and were very warm and sincere with their welcome. They had the perfect instinct to be there when we needed them and not to be there when they weren't needed. They clearly love their role as hosts and make the most of their stunning property. The villa is very well furnished with plenty of space and air con throughout. We were a party of 6 and we each had our own space without feeling as if we were intruding on others.
There's a large (Tommy's) supermarket 6 or 7 mins walk away. As you walk to Tommy's you'll pass a few cash points, a couple of restaurants, a bus stop (number 6 to the old town) and a taxi rank. It's also about a 10 min flat walk to Sunset Beach or a more vigorous 20 min walk to Copacabana Beach.
The gardens in the villa provide lots of space over several tiers with shady areas and open sunny areas. Plenty of seating all around.
We were lucky enough to be there at the time the fig tree was providing ripe fruit and had a bowl off Boris every morning.
It is faultless, and perfect. The hosts are beautiful caring couple who simply cannot do enough to make sure your stay is the best it can possibly be, and they did exactly that for us.
Lovely stay in gorgeous villa with very kind owners
We were a group of 4 adults and 3 teens and had a wonderful stay for 3 nights. Some highlights: a beautiful villa with gorgeously tended gardens; comfortable beds; lots of space and areas to hang out (inside and out); walking distance to anything we wanted; attentive and friendly owners who gave us personal attention; fresh figs from the tree... We are very thankful to Boris and Iris for everything!
"Amazing" doesn't do it justice
You HAVE to stay here. This is a beautiful, luxurious home in a great location. Just a $15-20 cab ride or 10 minute bus ride to Old Town. AC and wifi were great. Grounds are beautiful. Best of all though were the hosts Boris & Iris. They were the nicest, most helpful hosts we have experienced in all our travels/VRBO stays. Boris helped us with our luggage and walked with us to show us the area. Iris made us a dinner reservation and offered to make us breakfast. In short, they treated us like family and we hope to keep in touch with them. Highly recommended!!!!!!!!!!
The villa is a short walk from the Lapad beach promenade area, which includes shops, restaurants, cafes, playground and and beaches.
