Interaction with Guests
We are a married couple (passionate travelers and old timer vehicle collectors*) living at Palic all our life. Real locals, who can give you great advices when it comes to local cousine and various touristic attractions worth to visit!
If you feel like exploring, we can show you directions to some nice places around Palic, and Subotica, or you can just relax at our home and enjoy the garden and the swimming pool.
Quiet neighbourhood, yet easy access to both Palic and Subotica.
The house is located 20 minutes walk from the Palic lake, and 15 minutes walk from the ZOO (which is a must see!).
Shop, bakery, pizzeria, bar and a swimming pool are very close, 5min walk from the house. Bus stations are right in front of the house, and Subotica can be reached in 20 minutes by bus, or 8 minutes by taxi. (taxis are cheap in Serbia, and a ride to Subotica would cost you cca 4 euros)
Other Things to Note
Please note that we have a small dog living with us. He is very friendly, but he has no access to your rooms. We do not accept guest dogs/cats, however small pets are welcome!
The only house rule is that you should leave things the way you have found them on your arrival....
Smoking is not allowed in the house, but you can smoke outside or on the terrace.
Ilona and her cute dog Iskra were great hosts! She gave us some tips what to see and where to go in Palic and Subotica. Room was clean and nice. We stayed only one night this time but next time we will definitely stay longer!
Tom & Ilona were fabulous hosts - we invaded their home with 4 adults and 5 children under the age of six, taking over all three bedrooms, and they were very welcoming of our chaos. The rooms are comfortable, the location close to Lake Palic and Subotica very good, and we loved all of Tom's restaurant recommendations. They made us feel very much at home, offering homemade wine and rakia, and letting us use their kitchen and personal space. Their dog is also very sweet. There's ample parking. Rooms are as shown in the pictures, and the rest of the house is a collector's dream, packed with antiques and interesting art.
One con - the pool looks inviting, but there's no fence and it's deep, so I would be nervous about letting the kids play outside unsupervised.
We were staying just for the weekend in Subotica, but it was surprisingly amazing and pleasant - more than we expected! Ilona and Tomica were so hospitable, warm and open. We enjoyed both their company and home, since the house is unique - wide and cosy, full of interesting antiques, plants, precious details. It was obvious that the house was built and design with lot of taste and love.
Our kids (8 and 9 years old) loved it too! So much that they were telling the stories (about the oldmobiles, collection of dolls and old clocks and especially about the lovely dog - Iskra) to their friends when they got back to school. We would recommend both hosts and house to parents with kids - we guarantee that they both will fully enjoy this inspiring and lovely place.
We are travelling a lot, but this is definitelly one of the most inspiring places we've ever seen!
We felt like part of the family. Out host were outgoing, warm, lovely people who made us feel very welcome. They went over and above what we expected. I was there searching for information about my family and they introduced me to people in the community, took us around and included us in what they were doing. It was an extraordinary experience.
The house and neighborhood were lovely, but very difficult to find. Once we did, getting around by car was easy.
We came to Subotica just one day and chose this house for staying. When we saw it we were really impressed - it's amazing! House is pretty big and has absolutly everything for rest and enjoying time! We couldn't imagine better conditions. Even pictures can't show all beauty of this place - in real it's much more better. From the first moment we stepped in Tom was extremely kind and hospitable to us. Weather wasn't for us but Tom and his friend made our evening very interesting and unforgetable. We were upset to stay so little. Next time we go for longer time for sure. Higly highly recommended!
I had another stay with Tom and Ilona, it was perfect like the last time and I would recommend everyone who is visiting Palic or Subotica to stay at their place.
Tom and Ilona are now my home away from home! I couldn't have been more cared for than by my own mother/father/sister. They are most humble and accommodating to your every need! And Ilona's cooking is out of this world! Everyone needs to stay with them at least once! Bus stop to city and train is right in front of their house too. I will definitely be back just to see them!
