We stayed at Villa Katja at the start of June for 2 nights. The villa itself is located about a 20 minute walk from one of the entrances of Plitvice Lake National Park entrance. We stayed in one of their apartments which consisted of a large room with twin beds and kitchen/dining rooms, bathroom and another room with double bed.... More

Villa Katja is about 15min walk from the Plitvice lakes, just past the Mukinje village. When we asked the locals at Plitvice about the way to Villa Katja, they called up the owners and he came and picked us up. The owners were very friendly and nice, the house itself looks very pretty. We were given a room in the... More

This guesthouse is right where the bus stop before the one at Plitvice Lakes is, which makes it more affordable. Though it is about a 20-30 minute walk to get to the park entrance. The rooms were charming and clean with wifi. There is a lovely garden. The owner is quiet and introverted, but very kind and goes out of... More

Villa Katja is a 5 minute walk from the Mukinje bus stop in Plitvice (the third in Plitvice if you are coming from Zagreb). The hotel is also a short 10 minute walk to entrance 2 of the national park. We were greeted at the bus stop and driven the short distance to the villa. We had room 3 which... More

Was contemplating staying at the bigger and more expensive hotels near entrance 1 but Villa Katja is equally great at half the price. If you are arriving in the dark like us, make sure you get off the bus at Mukinje stop. A quick tip, there is not much food options and well stocked supermarket (at least in the winter),... More

We were collected from the bus stop and shown to a lovely bungalow/cottage. Friendly family home and rooms in a beautiful flowery garden. This is some of the closest accommodation to the lakes. Slept really well as was quiet and homely.

After booking (and confirming) with HostelBookers.com months in advance, upon arriving at Villa Katja we were shown not to a room in the villa as advertised and pictured, but to next doors hostel. We were escorted past several rooms that would've done fine and shown up a narrow dark passage too small to fit ourselves through with a backpack. We... More

We stayed at Villa Katja for 2 nights in June. The villa is in a lovely place and just a nice forest walk away from entrance 2 to the lakes. Room was nice, clean and large. Our hosts couldn't have been nicer and even ran us down to the park (and offered to take us to the supermarket too) in... More
