Description

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

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.

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. :)

The neighborhood

Superbly located in quiet neighbourhood that is also very central - just 3 minutes walk from the famous Lake Bled (host of the 2011 World Rowing Championship), 1 minute walk from nearest supermarket, 2 minutes walk from nearest restaurant, 10 minutes walk to all other town centre amenities, and 10 minutes walk to Bled Castle.

Getting around

We are located just 3 minutes' walk away from the main bus station in Bled.

The train station at Lesce is 10 minutes from Bled by bus.

The train station Bled Jezero is 20 minutes walk. The airport Brnik/Ljubljana is 25 minutes by car.

Full details of how to reach us will be provided in the itinerary Airbnb will send you if you choose to make a reservation with us.

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.

100% per description Apartment is indeed very cosy and all amenities are great! Perfectly located yet away from traffic as it is at the end of a road. Would highly recommend for its price!

Great location - walking distance from anywhere! The temperature in the room was a little whack though.

Response from Bojan And Laura:
Hi, not sure what you mean by that? Wish you'd told us at the time! We would have been more than happy to help make you more comfortable. All of the rooms are equipped with extra electric heaters and blankets for people who feel the cold more outside of the season when we use the central heating, as well as electric fans for summer heat...(as explained in the folder left for you) and we are always willing and available to help with any further issues guests might have during their stay.

Bojan and Laura were fantastic! Bojan was kind enough to pick us up from the station and they were both very happy to offer advice and help. The room was clean and cosy. In a great location too- 2 minutes to the lake! Had a great stay in Bled

We had a great stay at the Red Apartment in Bled. Laura was extremely helpful in the run up to our visiting by providing us with lots of information on activities, mostly skiing. Communication in advance in terms of the apartment itself was also excellent and very clear. On arrival Bojan welcomed us and showed us around the apartment. Laura and Bojan have also put together a really really useful folder to explain the apartment and things to do in the area, e.g. walks, restaurants and rentals, which we used everyday! The apartment was exactly as described and perfect for our week in Bled as a couple. The apartment is perfectly located in Bled being walking distance from the lake and all of the restaurants, bars and attractions. We also had a car and managed to visit a number of other places during day-trips, including the Slovenian coast which we highly recommend (also a tip from the folder). We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to others visiting Bled. Laura and Bojan are great hosts, we were there for New Year's Eve and Bojan dropped by with a bottle of bubbly for us to see the new year in from the amazing castle just round the corner. Thanks Laura and Bojan!

We had a lovely time at Laura and Bojan's perfectly located place. The apartment was very clean and tidy, and we found the above-mentioned moisture and spiders non-existent during our stay! There was plenty of space for us as a couple, and we were very comfortable. The meticulously prepared guide book helped to make our stay at Lake Bled even more enjoyable, and we were also appreciative of the assistance with activities (boating, biking etc). We highly recommend both this apartment and Laura and Bojan as hosts.

Nice appartment, very good location. Wi-fi is far away so in some cases signal can be lost.

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.
