We have a delicious private internal garden where we usually chill out, sometimes through all the day. There you can have a breakfast, enjoy a glass of our own home made wine, read or simply hang in a hammock doing nothing.
If you want to rest on the couch in the living-room, you'll also be able to watch cable TV in English, Italian, German (few channels).

Interaction with Guests
Here you'll for sure have have your own freedom as the apartment has it's own entrance. We are staying close we will be happy to help you for anything else.
Our house is in the center of Koper - Capodistria, in the old part, just a minute walk away from the sea. We have a free entry public beach. In the area nearby there is a supermarket, the open market, several bars, restaurants, shops, a free public parking, a bus and a taxi station. The old town is a quiet neighborhood, completely safe for late night arrivals, even if you're heading home at 3 in the morning.
Note that the "free public parking" is in a large lot just beside the old town (2 min walking, right next to the market place and the harbor promenade). Best to park there and just drive to the house to drop off the bags as only residents have permits to park inside town.
If you want to go abroad the coast there is a taxi and bus station 2min away. The buses toward Izola - Piran - Portoroz go every 15-20 min and there is also a shuttle van as alternative.
If you want to go further you can buy a ticket (1eur) to the main bus/train station (1km away) and then take your ride e.g. 20 min away is Triest - capital of coffee, 30 min to Lipica's lipizzaner white horses, 45 min Postojna and Skocjan caves, 1h Pula (Cro) with its Roman arena, 1h to Ljubljana - capital of Slovenia and 1,5h to Venice.
Other Things to Note
PARKING - Note that the "free public parking" is in a large area right next to the market place and near the sea, only 3 minutes from the house. We suggest to drive to the house just to drop off the bags and leave the car in the parking free area. The parking in the old part is limited to residents with permits.
SEASONAL TIPS - The swimming season is from June to September but some tough guys bath also in May and October ;) The access to the town's beach is free and there is a bar, coffee/pastry shop and playhouses for children right on the spot.
There is a lot of cycling to do around the coast or explore the inside of Istra or the Carst and perhaps we can arrange some bikes if you want to.
No parties. No smoking inside. No sleepover without permission. Please be a good neighbor and comply with all local ordinances, state and municipality laws. Please respect the peace and quiet of your neighbors in the apartment/ room and the common areas including the garden specially after 22:00. Apartment's accessories (pillows, blankets, towels...) are not allowed to be taken out of the apartment and do not use the towels provided to clean shoes, floor, tables, etc. If you need additional cleaning material, please ask the staff to provide it. Pets are welcome as long as they are friendly and quiet and cute. Just leave the apartment you rented the way you found it upon arrival.
Apart from a very friendly welcome by Bostjan, we were a bit disappointed with the apartment: the pictures had oversold it and the cleaning had been superficial (We often use AirBnb, we do not expect hotel-style cleanliness). Great location within the city though.
Thank you for staying in our apartment. Your feedback is extremely valuable as with my wife we always do our best to make feel our guests like at home. I am really sorry to hear your experience fell short of expectation and I appreciate you understand we are not running a hotel. We do always take extra care when cleaning our apartment, specially when we are expecting guests. Our main priority is to be able to offer a comfortable atmosphere and very-well maintained home. I hope you had a pleasant stay anyway and if some days the road takes you here again I hope I can convince you to change your mind.
Замечательное место в центре старого города. Красивые виды залива, аритектура, магазины, кофейни, пиццерии- все в шаговой доступности. Бостиан и Сара очень радушные хозяева. Квартира в хорошем состоянии, все необходимое для комфортной автономной жизни присутствует. Немного шумновато рано утром за окном, машины (что меня удивило) люди, но это не страшно. В общем, спасибо за возможность пожить в исторической части города.
An excellent stay. Friendly welcome and apartment was very well-prepared and well-equipped. Lovely location in the old town but still close to train/bus station & big shops/supermarkets. Would highly recommend! A very comfortable stay in a lovely part of the country.
Bostjan and his wife have a beautiful flat in the middle of Koper's old part. It has a practical kitchen with lots of kitchenware. The apartment was cool despite the heat wave (+30C in September!) and the small terrace and yard are perfect for chilling. Great for couples!
The apartment is awesome - very nice and modern, spacious and perfectly furnished. There is everything you might need and I mean everything - you could start living there right on the spot. Bostjan has also proven to be very friendly and helpful host. Be prepared that car access isnt the easiest but it's still possible to unload your bags in front of the house and park within 5 minutes walk.
All in all, totally recommended.
