About this listing

Living area has double sofa-bed and TV.
Stairs lead to main sleeping area above, with double (or 2 single) bed(s).

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. :)
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.
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
We are located next door to a YHA youth hostel. As it is a YHA hostel, the guests tend to be cyclists, families and school groups rather than drunken backpackers so we have never had any problems with them. However in the summer they are very busy so there is inevitable noise (talking, vacuuming, rubbish being taken out) sometimes early in the morning but NOT late night loud parties/music!!!
Check out by 11am on day of departure.
Pets only by prior arrangement.
Please separate the rubbish - all plastics and cans in the recycling bin, other waste in the other bin.
No excessive noise after 10pm.
Please report if anything is broken/not working.
Obviously we will clean thoroughly after you leave, but if you can help us by leaving things reasonably tidy that would be greatly appreciated.
ENJOY YOUR STAY!! - if you need anything, please ASK!
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.
