Hi travellers, you are welcome to stay with us and experience Rovinj and Istria first hand.
We really enjoyed our visit to Rovinj. Mladen has a wonderful place, conveniently located for walking to town. It was spotless and was equipped with everything we needed. We wished we would have planned more time there because it was so comfortable. Mladen's communication skills in English were excellent. He responded quickly to all email communications before we left for our trip and helped us by suggesting a local car rental company. He was there to pick us up when we arrived at the bus station. Mladen was very kind, his place was very clean and comfortable! We highly recommend staying here if you visit Rovinj, which you shouldn't miss...a quaint, little, hidden gem!
I could not have asked for a better place to stay in Rovinj. A home away from home! Mladen and his family were very friendly and always nearby should I have needed something. The studio was spacious enough for a week long stay, really clean, and well looked after. The bed was comfortable, there was plenty of natural light, kitchen was spacious enough for some small scale cooking (and who needs to spend all the time cooking at home when great restaurants were as close as a 3min walk) and the there was never a shortage of hot water in the bathroom and water pressure was excellent.
The balcony was huge, with chairs and a table and a rack to dry clothes, which was a great touch. And it got the evening sun so was perfect to relax with a glass of wine.
The town centre is a 10min walk away, and he walk is a pleasant walk through the suburb. There was a food shop 1min walk from the house with super friendly staff and a great restaurant as well.
I definitely recommend staying with Mladen and his family.
What a lovely apartment this was for our stay in Rovinj, located in a quiet location by a beautiful park. There was a grocery store just down the street, a nice restaurant down another street, and it was an easy 10 minute walk into the old town. Mladen was a gracious host with a nice sense of humour. His lovely wife even brought us a plate of home baked croissants. The apartment was very clean and well furnished. When we had difficulty connecting to the internet, Mladen reacted right away and reset the router. Rovinj is so nice, we loved our time there, and we highly recommend this apartment to anyone travelling in this area.
I recommend cordially this accommodation and Rovinj as well! The appartment was clean, comfortable and good equipped. It is located in a beautiful and quiet environment and it is close to the historical city center (only 10 minutes walking). We spent there 3 days, it was beautiful.
Wir haben eine herrliche Woche bei unserem großartigen Gastgeber Mladen Zaya verbracht. Mladen hat uns sehr herzlich begrüßt und uns alles perfekt erklärt. Er hatte immer eine Tip bereit, sei es zum Anschauen oder ein Restaurant. Das große und sehr gut ausgestattete Appartement liegt ruhig und alles ist gut zu Fuß erreichbar. Rovinj war das ideale Reiseziel für uns - wunderschöne Altstadt, reichlicher Markt, tolle Restaurants. Ganz besonders haben uns die Früchte aus dem eigenen Garten (Feigen und Weintrauben) geschmeckt. Bei unserem nächsten Besuch in Istrien sind wir sicher wieder in Rovinj bei Mladen.
Thank you again Mladen for our enjoyable stay in Rovinj. Apartment was well furnished and very clean! Just a short walk from town, we were really happy we chose to stay here and would recommend this place to everyone!
Malden was a great host. Place was clean and had most of what we needed. We got in late on ferry and called Mladen to get directions. He was kind enough to come and pick us up. Place was in a neighborhood not too far from center of Roninj. Mladen also shared stories and fruit from his garden. I particularly like this choice because it is a privately owned place unlike those that are commercially managed.
It was a nice stay in Rovinj. Mladen is very polite, helpful and gave us many useful tips. A can reallly recommend this host.
From now on, Mladen will be the host by which all other airbnb hosts will be judged! We had such an incredible time in Rovinj, and Mladen was a huge part of it. He insisted on picking us up from the bus station as soon as we arrived from Pula. Our plans were derailed slightly, and we ended up coming to Rovinj via Porec (don't ask!), arriving around nine hours later than expected, and still Mladen insisted on picking us up!
He took time that night to tell us about all of the amazing things that Rovinj had to offer, and let us know that we happened to have arrived in time for a big celebration, and explained to us all of the entertainment that was going on. It was so much fun, and even bumped into Mladen while we were enjoying the festivities!
The apartment itself is perfect. The first thing we noticed was just how clean it was. Not just clean, but super clean! Cleaner than the cleanest hotel you've stayed in.
The location was perfect, around ten minutes from the town centre. The surrounding area was very quiet, with a small park just over the road and a couple of shops very close by, which was handy. The terrace area was very pleasant to sit on and enjoy the early evening with a beer before we would head back into town for the entertainment. The first night we did this, Mladen appeared with a dish of grapes and figs for us that he grows himself, which came after his wife had earlier in the day given us a bottle of wine to enjoy. They truly are a lovely family, and are incredibly generous.
We were leaving to get the bus to Venice early on the morning of our departure (5.40am). I spoke to Mladen to let him know we were slipping out early in the morning so that I could find out what to do with the key. When he heard we were leaving so early he was adamant that he would drive us to the station! Thankfully, I was able to talk him out of getting up so early on account of us. But I'm 100% sure he would have!
If you are planning on staying in Rovinj and Mladen's apartment is available, you would be a fool not to book a stay with him!

The apartment was clean and really cute. Really close walking distance to town. I would definitely stay here again!
Great place! Most friendly, helping, warm and welcoming people. Very nice and clean studios, perfect terrace for relaxing. Great location so everything is reachable in less than 10mns by foot or better with bike so you can extend your reach and dont have to use a car.
