About This Listing
Hello dear travelers,
the house is located about 15 MINUTES WALKING DISTANCE FROM THE CENTER OF PULA and about 5 MINUTES BUS DISTANCE FROM BEAUTIFUL BEACHES. If I am going to the town or the market I use my bike or walk because everything is really close. Bakery, cafe bar, restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacy, bank and a green market are just a few minutes away. The bus stop is just a few steps from the house and at about 50 m distance there is a FREE AND SAFE PUBLIC PARKING.
The house dates from the 1910. and it is an Austrian villa with a surface of 105 m2, located on the ground floor.
The room is really comfortable with a surface of 25 m2 and it can accommodate MAX. 4 PEOPLE. It has 4 single beds, one big closet and a table with chairs. The room is very bright because of it’s big windows but the windows have shutters so all of you sleepers don't have to worry about sun waking you up early in the morning :). AIR CONDITIONING is in the room as well as the WI-FI which is free to use.
The guest room is a PRIVATE ROOM with SHARED BATHROOM and SHARED KITCHEN. The bathroom and the kitchen are shared with the owner.
1 PERSON = 37 euro
2 PERSON = 37 euro
3 PERSON = 53 euro
4 PERSON = 69 euro
TOWELS are INCLUDED IN THE PRICE and the guests can use a hairdryer. Everything in the kitchen can be used ( the refrigerator, the microwave, dishes and the dishwasher) but COOKING IS NOT ALLOWED. Unfortunately I had some negative experiences with guests cooking in our kitchen :( But don't worry, there are a lot of restaurants nearby that I can recommend you. I also have an electric kettle and microwave if you want to make a tea or coffee in the morning.
The house has a lovely terrace full of flowers where the guests can sit down and relax, dry their clothes or smoke, as well as the garden with a big pine tree.
WI-FI IS AVAILABLE in the entire house and free to use.
I have various tourist informative material and city maps and will be glad to help you in any way.
If I am not busy working we can agree on picking you up from the bus station (free of charge) or the airport (payable service).
If you need more information feel free to write me...
Other Things to Note

You can hang and dry you clothes (swimming suite, towels etc.) on the terrace.
Smoking is not allowed in the room but you can smoke on the terrace.
You can see a map with useful information on the room closet (the nearest beaches, grocery stores, town center etc. and the easiest way to get there).
You can take a city map that you will find on the table.
The bus stations are just in front of the house, 50 m on the right when you exit the yard.
My family had a wonderful time in Pula and at Luka's apartment. It was the cleanest accommodation I have ever seen with excellent Wi-Fi and a powerful shower. The AC in our room worked perfectly. Location was excellent with a bus to the city centre stopping yards from the apt. The bus to the beach was 5 metres further away from apt. front door on other side of road. Brill bakery around corner with superb cafes and restaurant dotted around nearby. 10 out of 10. :)
Great flat and exceptional hosts. You won't be disappointed - especially by the hospitality, which is well and truly above expected!
The flat is not in the town center. But - that is actually a benefit, as neither is the beach - and this place is located exactly in the middle of both. If you were staying right at the centre, you might feel that the beach is too far. This way - they are actually both within a reasonable bus distance.
If thinking of coming to Pula - this is your place!
Roomwas fine and the hosts were very nice and heplful.
My only recommendation for improvement/change would be to replace one of the cot style beds with a proper double or queen size. It would make it more comfortable, especially for a couple, and less backpacker style.
They are really good hosts, and we really enjoyed staying there. They were really helpful with information and they made us feel like being at home. The major con is definitely the distance (20 minutes walk) to the city center and you had to take the bus to go to the beach. There are some house rules which we found a bit odd. You are not allowed to use the stove at all and use bathroom between 6:30-7:30. If you don't plan on making food at home it's not a problem. We will however recommend the place, because they are so sweet and helpful.
We have 4 happy days at the two.
The apartment was beautiful and very clean.
Both have very well cared for and helped. Excursions, restaurants and book a car.
They also gave us a lot of small-tips what we can do.
You could tell it was a great time despite the rain in a few days :-)

About the Host, Luka
Hello travelers ! :)
My name is Luka, I was born and still live in Pula.
I am an architect and have graduated in Trieste, Italy, and I am currently working in a architectural bureau in Pula.
I speak English and Italian.
I like meeting new people, good music, movies, reading books, working in the garden, experimenting with permaculture, practicing yoga, playing soccer, bike riding, swimming but most of all I love to travel so by renting the room in the house I am also saving for future traveling.
I feel really comfortable having guests at my place, for me it is a great way to practice foreign language, learn about other cultures, and I try to make our guests feel like they are home, offering them all the tips and help they need during their stay. If I find the time I really like to spend some time with my guests at the beach or going out to town at night! As I like to travel and know how great it is when someone local gives you suggestions where to go and what to do in the town which you are visiting.
