About This Listing
Renovated basement with private entrance directly below family home. This is a friendly, burrow-like space (although there are 3 street-level windows) which makes a very comfortable, private nest for cosy couples!
Mini kitchen and doorway to sleeping area and bathroom. Electric de-humidifier in doorway.
Bojan loves his basement dearly as he renovated it himself and also lived in it for one happy winter.
In winter it is very warm and cosy as it is directly below the living room of the family home. On hot summer days its cool, which is delightfully refreshing after the hot walk up the hill from the lake.
It has its own private entrance, directly off the quiet, residential street.
The basement is a studio-style apartment ideal for 2 people.
The main living room/kitchen area has sofa-bed, fridge, kettle, sink and 2 hotplates.
The sleeping area has a double bed and a wardrobe and is up 2 steps from the living area.
The bathroom has a WC, washbasin and shower.
Free parking - we have some space in front of the house. During the summer season this is sometimes full but there is a free, safe public carpark just 150 metres away.

Friendly hosts who gave great advice on things to do in the area. Really helpful prior to arriving, answering all of our questions about Bled and other places in Slovenia. Even offered to take us to lake bohinj as they were heading out there.
Perfect location, 2min walk to the lake and bus stop and market around the corner. Room spacious for 2 people. The room smelt a bit musty (even with leaving windows open and using dehumidifier). Overall good value for price and would stay here again.
We are sorry that the room was musty! As you probably noticed, during that period we had big summer rain and as a result the basement apartment is sometimes a bit musty, although we have done a lot to try to resolve that issue. This is the main reason why the basement apartment has such a low price. We are glad you had a good time otherwise.
Kind regards, Laura & Bojan
Excellent apartment and very welcoming host. Fantastic location. Would highly recommend.
Bojan was a great host and the apartment as described. We even had a parking space for our car right next to the apartment. The apartment itself is good for a couple and well located close to the lake and you can explore the surroundings of Bled from there. Because the apartment is in the basement, it is quite cool but heaters are there if you need it any warmer. We had great weather so we did not need them. All in all we had a great stay there.
Bojan and Laura were very sweet hosts! We truly enjoyed our short stay in Bled due to their hospitality. Bojan picked us up from the train station, gave us information about Bled and Slovenia in general, and made us a restaurant reservation for the most incredible dinner at the castle. The "burrow" was cool (we used one of the numerous heaters they provided in the evening once or twice) and a nice size for a couple. The location is perfect, within walking distance to anything you need in Bled. Since Bled is small, the apartment is not super easily accessed by public transit (I think it would be quite a hike from the bus station with luggage). If you are visiting and Bojan isn't able to pick you up, I would definitely recommend taking a taxi. Overall, we would truly recommend Bled as a destination, and Bojan and Laura as hosts to any of our friends and family. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
Had a comfortable stay at the apartment during our stay in Bled. Apartment was clean, spacious, and well-equipped with heaters.
Bojan was very friendly, and even offered to drive us around if we need as the weather wasn't very favorable.

About the Host, Bojan And Laura
Bojan is a mountain guide, kayak instructor and babysitter from Bled and Laura is an ex-coach driver originally from Scotland. We live happily in Bled with our two small boys Miha and Dylan. You will either meet us or Bojan's sister Marijeta (and her little boy Alex). We love outdoor activities and travel, although at the moment that mostly means walking to the lake to feed the ducks.
