Interaction 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 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.
If you would like to go abroad: 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.
No parties. No smoking inside. No sleepover without permission. Please be a good neighbor and comply with all local ordinances, state and municipality laws. Please respect the peace and quiet of your neighbors in the apartment/ room and the common areas including the garden specially after 22:00. Apartment's accessories (pillows, blankets, towels...) are not allowed to be taken out of the apartment and do not use the towels provided to clean shoes, floor, tables, etc. If you need additional cleaning material, please ask the staff to provide it. Pets are welcome as long as they are friendly and quiet and cute. Just leave the apartment you rented the way you found it upon arrival.
My husband and I stayed 1 night at Bostjan's house, and I was very grateful that we managed to coordinate it so quickly! I contacted him only the day before, in the middle of a few tricky and exhausting days of travel. Bostjan was also kind enough to let us arrive quite late into the evening. The room is small, but clean and perfectly comfortable for 2. Great bed and bedsheets! We had to leave quickly the next day, so I am sorry we didn't have more of a chance to meet our welcoming hosts.
Bostjan and Sara were lovely hosts. The bedroom is great for one or two people and the apartment is lovely as well, not even difficult to find! It's only a quick walk to the ocean, too! They were very accommodating hosts and kind people, I would stay here again.
Bostjan & Sara are a lovely and welcoming couple and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Koper. The property was as described. Yes, the room is small but the bed is good & 2 can fit in the room if you plan well. We would definitely return and perhaps visit other nearby places in Slovenia!
Sarah and Bostjan were very friendly and helpful,they gave us a lot of information about the town and the region.
the location of the house is great, the room is small, nice and clean. there is a very nice backyard also (where unfortunately we couldn't have breakfast because of the bad weather).
we liked Koper and Istria. everything was easy-going.
we recommend it.
This is my first time rent through Airbnb. Bostjan was very kind and friendly. The place is very tidy and clean. We head great time in Koper! I will recomend Bostjan's room to my friends...
