Interaction with Guests
I could say we interact with guests right enough. Sometimes our guests are wandering around all the time, sometimes they stay in and hang out with us.
Our house is in the center of Koper - Capodistria, in the old part, just a minute walk away from the sea. We have a free entry public beach. In the area nearby there is a supermarket, the open market, several bars, restaurants, shops, a free public parking, a bus and a taxi station. The old town is a quiet neighborhood, completely safe for late night arrivals, even if you're heading home at 3 in the morning.
Note that the "free public parking" is in a large lot just beside the old town (2 min walking, right next to the market place and the harbor promenade). Best to park there and just drive to the house to drop off the bags as only residents have permits to park inside town. The parking is safe and always the first choice for both locals and visitors.
The bus and taxi station is 2 min walking away from the house and if you need transport to/from train station or airport let us know. Local buses pass every 15 min.
If you would like to go abroad perhaps the best way is to go to the central bus/train station.
Koper is an excellent starting point: 20 min away is Trieste - capital of coffee, 30 min to Lipica's lipizzaner white horses, 45 min Postojna and Skocjan caves, 45 min Pula (Cro) with its Roman arena, 1hr to Ljubljana - capital of Slovenia and 1,5 hours to Venice.
Other Things to Note
PARKING - Note that the "free public parking" is in a large area right next to the market place and near the sea, only 3 minutes from the house. We suggest to drive to the house just to drop off the bags and leave the car in the parking free area. The parking in the old part is limited to residents with permits.
SEASONAL TIPS - The swimming season is from June to September but some tough guys bath also in May and October ;) The access to the town's beach is free and there is a bar, coffee/pastry shop and playhouses for children right on the spot.
There is a lot of cycling to do around the coast or explore the inside of Istra or the Carst and perhaps we can arrange some bikes if you want to.

Everything was fine and as described. Good place for a base if you plan to spend most time outside.
Location is perfect.
Bostjan was very welcoming and hospitable, and helped us find our way around the lovely town of Koper. The room was basic, very neat and tidy, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay in Koper.
Bostjan has a really nice flat in the middle of Koper. Getting there and finding a parking place was very easy with his help beforehand. Sorry we could'nt stay longer. Also the other guest we met were very nice!
Die Unterkunft ist absolut ausreichend für ein paar Tage Koper. Besonders gut gefallen hat uns das Appartment, da auch eine Küche vorhanden ist. Die Lage ist super. Sehr zentral und hübsch in der Altstadt. Bostjan und seine Frau Sarah sind sehr nett.
Koper ist eine kleine Industrie-Hafenstadt, uns hat die Stadt im Gegensatz zu Piran weniger gefallen.
Bostjan's place is in the center of the old town, everything was nearby including a free parking lot. He and his girlfriend were very welcoming and helpful. We had a great time at the apartment which was fully equipped and was perfect for the four of us. It also has a nice terrace and a cute cat in the neighborhood.
Siamo stati in Koper una notte in agosto 2014, io, moglie e due figli piccoli. L'appartamento di Bostjan si trova in una zona ottimale della città, nella parte vecchia, a un minuto dal porto e pochi minuti a piedi dal centro. vicino c'è un grande parcheggio, non a pagamento nel week end. Bostjan è stato cordiale. L'appartamento è molto carino, ma poco adatto a famiglie con bambini piccoli. Il mezzanino su cui sono i due letti singoli non ci è sembrato molto sicuro, con una ringhiera di protezione bassa. Inoltre, abbiamo diviso l'appartamento (cucina e bagno) con una coppia di giovani polacchi, molto carini. Nessun problema, ma avremmo preferito sapere in anticipo che la casa era già occupata. Raccomandiamo l'appartamento a famiglie con figli grandi o solo adulti.
We enjoyed the stay in the apartment Bostjan that greeted us when we arrived. It is very well located in the old town of Koper, near the historic center and harbor. We enjoyed not having to take the car to visit both places. We shared the kitchen and bathroom with a couple from Poland with whom we had the pleasure of meeting. The accommodation is functional, clean and fits the description which is made on site. It was nice to meet Bostjan and his wife, even if it was for a short time.
