I am Radenka from Montenegro, love to take long walks in forest, adore to have good cup of coffee on a terrace and enjoy nice company. I am a mother, have one son, and above all - I am sincere, kind, and brave on the journey called Life.
Great accommodation. Price is right. Lovely wood burner in the living room/kitchen. Radenka left us to it and we really enjoyed our stay.
Update on directions-
Head into the town
At the cross roads(Voli supermarket ahead, tourist information on the right) turn right
200m up the road you will see the wooden sign as shown in pictures
Head along this road as it bends right, up the hill until a sharp left.
At the next small crossroads the white house is ahead and to the left
We actually never saw Radenka. We were met by two young polite men who showed us around. They were very helpful, and our stay was a nice one. There is a ten minutes walk to town.
Мы останавливались у Раденки в начале октября, но, к сожалению, ее дом не приспособлен для проживания в нем в такое время года. Было очень холодно, особенно в санузле; чтобы принять душ, мы сначала ставили электрический обогреватель для того, чтобы он нагрел воздух, без этого в санузле дико холодно, пол вообще ледяной. В комнате, к счастью, есть печка типа буржуйки, Раденка топила ее, вообще, она очень радушная хозяйка, она угощала нас чаем из трав, собранных в Жабляке. Вот только, к большому нашему сожалению, Раденка курит прямо в доме, не проветривая помещения, так что табачный дым поднимается вверх, как раз в те комнаты, где живут гости. Для нас, как некурящих, это совершенно непреемлимо. По-английски Раденка не говорит, но для нас это не стало проблемой, т.к. русский и сербский немного похожи, и мы отлично понимали друг друга. Кстати, в комнате, где мы останавливались, есть кухня и холодильник, что очень удобно.
The house of Radenka is lovely and in a very nice place. We had a very nice time there. But when we booked it for 2 persons we had to pay 25euros through Airbnb and appart from that they asked us 15 euro more in cash in terms of 10 for cleaning fee and 5 euros more for accomodation. They mentionned that we had to pay this extra 15 euro before accepting the reservation but we think that it is worth to be included in Airbnb price to avoid misunderstandings. Anyway it is a very recommendable place to stay!
We liked the stay very much, spent 4 nights on the upper level of the house. The view from our windows was marvelous! We missed a regular-sized sink in the bathroom, but it's not a big deal at all. The apartment is very clean and tidy. We did not have to ask for towels, soap, toilet paper, etc., all was in place before we arrived. We had some pricing misunderstanding with Radenka, but sorted it out with Mladen, who speaks good English.
I would recommend the place to everybody!
The host did not speak any English or any other language for that matter. The apartment was alright, but we had to share it with other guests (including bathroom and the kitchen, where one of the beds was placed for sleeping). Furthermore, we were given unclear directions and had problems finding the place itself. As we were 5 and had to share bathroom with at least two other guests - the warm water ran out quite quickly in the morning which was not very nice.
Radenka was a lovely host and our time in Zabljak was beautiful! I nice!! We went canyoning (which was a must do in such lovely sunny weather) and hiking, the National park was beautiful but be sure to pack an umbrella and warm clothes to change into as it rains a lot. Radenka speaks no English but it is not a problem at all as the small town has a central tourist info spot where we booked everything and organised transport! Radenkas house is walking distance from bus (but maybe get a taxi when you arrive as directions are a little confusing) and restaurants, super market and national park! Most spots in town have free wifi as well so it wasn't a problem that Radenka didn't have it. Thanks for the cosy accomodation Radenka :)
Just out from Zabljak, Novosel Cosy apartment is quiet and peaceful. I slept very well! :) Radenka is a woman extremely gentile and smiling. I'll definitely be back
We arrived (3 couples) in Montenegro to visit the coast, but this unexpected experience in Durmitor has been great. Wonderful mountains, beautiful lakes. If you want, you can walk on the top of great mountains - as we did - and feel like in Alpes, or even better. Or you can stay in the center of the park, having a boat-trip on the black lake and relaxing.
Radenka's house is perfect. A little bit out from the small town, so you can relax and avoid the noise of tourists, you feel at home because of her kindness: she received us offering sweets and coffee!
Great for six or even 8 persons. Must do.
Radenka's place is just great, a little house in the middle of the mountain, very clean and very tidy.
Radenka is the perfect host.
I strongly recommend to go there.
Thank you Radenka
