Renovated basement. Private entrance directly below family home. Friendly, burrow-like space (although there are 3 street-level windows). NOT FANCY, but makes a very comfortable, private nest for cosy couples or singles.

The space

Bojan loves his basement dearly as he renovated it himself and also lived in it for one happy winter. It does have a musty smell (and slight damp patches after heavy rain) despite our best efforts to rectify this issue. In the summer, there are also a lot of spiders. The spiders here are completely harmless and in fact very helpful as they the reduce the fly and mosquito population (which are more of a nuisance). We remove old webs whenever we see them, but removing all the spiders would be a large and toxic operation, especially when they are harmless anyway. However, we are aware many people are afraid of spiders, and our advice is IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF SPIDERS, DO NOT BOOK THIS APARTMENT!!!

These facts are reflected in the low price of the apartment. For the damp, we provide you with de-humidifier, room deodorisers and suggest you open the windows whenever possible. Most guests are not bothered at all (see reviews!) but if you don't like the sound of it, try our Yellow Apartment instead - it is upstairs in the loft and it's not damp at all! :)

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/basic mini 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.

Guest access

Free WiFi

We have some parking beside the house, but it is subject to availability so please let us know in advance if you are bringing a car with you.

Interaction with guests

We are a friendly, relaxed family who enjoy meeting people and
we can help you to organise any excursions/activities you are interested in during your stay. We offer bike rental, discounts on rowing boat hire on Lake Bled and a free ride with the road train around the lake. Hiking or kayaking with a qualified instructor can be also be provided by prior arrangement.

We have tried hard to provide realistic descriptions to give you a clear picture of our accommodation before you deside if you would like to book. We also provide (in all of our apartments) a comprehensive manuel full of answers to any questions you might have during your stay and the various ways you can contact us while you are here (we are always close at hand!)

So please, IF YOU NEED ANYTHING/NEED HELP WITH ANYTHING DURING YOUR STAY PLEASE TELL US STRAIGHT AWAY - don't save it for the review to say the WiFi didn't work so well on the second day or one of the bikes had a puncture or you would have liked the towels changed a day earlier- tell us at the time and let us fix it for you. :)

Other things to note

During summer there can be a lot of street noise in the Red Apartment due to the street level windows and the large volume of tourists Bled receives, especially during July and August. The road is closed to traffic just beyond our house, so most of this noise is just from people who are walking past, talking, laughing etc. Most of our guests have not found this to be a problem (see reviews!)

During the quiet season (November to March, not including holidays) we are prepared to offer substantial discounts for long-term stays.

We really had a good Time at Bled. It was rainy but that doesnt bother us at all because the Apartment was nice and comfortable. It is perfect for a couple. The walk to the sea is only a few minutes. Additional the Communication with Laura was really good! We arrived early in the morning, picked up the key and she wrote us as soon the Apartment was ready for us. This way we could check in earlier than the description says. And we didnt see any spider :)

Laura and Bojan's place is exactly as described. The location is great, really close to the castle. The manual they provide is really helpful it has loads of information. They also gave us bikes to use for a cycle around the lake.

Laura & Bojan User Profile

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 3 small boys Miha, Dylan & Branko. 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.
