My relaxed and cosy apartment will amuse you, especially if you travel alone, as a couple, with a child or a pet. It’s located within the walking distance to all the major city sites.
The lovely flat (46 m2) contains a living room , fully equipped kitchen, bedroom (antique king size bed 180x200cm and cupoards) and a bathroom with toilet and shower. 2 people fit comfortably in the bedroom.
I provide: Free high speed WIFI, clean bed sheets and towels, washing machine, freezer, gas cooker, oven, microwave, iron, hairdryer, cable TV as well storing of your bicycles or similar. Free parking is available in front of the building.
My small dog, a 14 months old Jack Russell terrier, lives with me. He’s very friendly and he’ll be delighted to meet the fellow travellers to show off his latest tricks and play and fool around.
We are both easy going, used to travelling and meeting people from all walks of life!
I’m offering the guests to use my small bedroom with a king size bed and some cupboards to store the clothes.
You’re welcome to cook and use all the facilities and space in the flat.
Interaction with Guests
We can interact as much as you like.
The neighbourhood is quiet, green and serene. The football stadium Ljudski vrt and tennis club Branik with courts are just around the corner, the city park within 15min walk, the National Theatre and Opera house about 10min walk.
The Kalvarija and Piramida vine hills with extensive wine trails, that offer a beautiful view of the entire town with the Drava valley, sit just a few blocks away.
The Old vine, the oldest vine in the world, is the oldest living specimen on our planet of a noble grape vine. With an age of over 400 years it is registered in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest vine in the world and it’s only 15min walk away, inviting you to see it, still living and defying time, still bearing grapes in the town’s historic Lent (the oldest part of town), where bars and restaurants invite you today. In June and early July, the Lent festival takes place in this area with many stages placed along the river Drava. You could also take a walk or cycle along the river Drava to the Mariborski otok, the island where an outdoor swimming pool and surrounding trees will refresh you during the hot summers.
You can see the ski world cup Golden Fox slopes of Pohorje from the window and it takes about 15 min by car to reach for skiing or snowboarding during the winter. The slopes and the nearby area are used as the adrenalin park during the summer as well as for hiking, horse riding or downhill and mountain cycling. Cable car can take you to the top, where you can enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the Drava valley region if walking proves too hard.
If you are coming by train or bus, it’s possible to walk from the main train or bus station, though it will take you 25min. You can take bus number 7 or 15 and bus stops are just minutes away. If I have free time, I could come and pick you up for free (max 1 person). Taxi is pretty inexpensive, too.
By car it's an easy access. There is a free parking in front of the building.

The apartment was very pleasant, and Simona was very welcoming. She helped us find a local market and restaurant, and she made us feel very welcome. We recommend Simona and her apartment!
It was really nice to stay at Simonas place. She's a lovely and helping person and the room was also very cosy.
Simona is a very nice host, very kind and friendly. She was really helpfull for our first steps in the city! It was a short, but nice stay at Simona's house.
I really recommand the place, cosy and close to the center, and the host!
Simona al nostro arrivo ci ha accolto con il suo simpatico cagnolino, ci ha dato le chiavi e indicazioni x un ristorante nel centro di Maribor, abbastanza vicino per andarci a piedi. La stanza pulita e confortevole, al mattino ci ha offerto una dolce colazione. Simona è molto comunicativa anche con il nostro scarso inglese, grazie. Lory e Stefy
