She got us local welcome drinks at the time of check in and gave us a small souvenir of plitvice as a present at checkout. The house is beautiful. The apartment has comfortable beds a balcony with a great view and a decent... More

Just returned from a trip to Croatia and had to review House Marija in the Plitvice Lakes region. We stayed here for two nights and loved how welcoming and accommodating Marija was. As others have mentioned, as soon as we pulled into the driveway, we were greeted with a welcome drink and cookies. Our room was really nice and comfortable,... More

Marija is a great hostess and the room here was spotlessly clean and roomy. She met us with a cold drink which we were very grateful for. Breakfast was also wonderful with homemade jams and drinks. Marija suggested a restaurant to go to for dinner, however it was very busy & we did have to wait a while - you... More

Everybody who was wondering like me how to get to Plitvice Lakes without a car and where to find accommodation should not look any further. The best solution is: House Marija in Selište Drežničko. Marija and her family live in this small Croatian village which is a 10-minute-drive away from entrance 1 of the national park. Marija´s husband was really... More

What a great place to stay and rest after trekking Plitvice Lakes. The room was super clean! Marija gave us fresh juice upon arrival and very friendly as others stated. You cannot go wrong booking with her. Only a few kilometers from Plitvice Lakes.

The room was very clean and had a homely feel. The bus stop and shop were opposite with a restaurant nearby. The landlady was very friendly and spoke english and on the day that we missed the bus to the lakes she drove us there. She made us feel extremely welcome and even brough up freshly made apple pie when... More

My girlfriend and I popped down here from Slovenia and found Marija to be warm, kind, and thoughtful. We met other great guests and Marija offered a third unused guest room with a table where we could all sit and tell stories. That was a very kind gesture. She runs a clean home hotel and fills it with warmth. Would... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in September and enjoyed a very full day in the park. The weather was cold and foggy but we still had an excellent time. This B&B is very clean and cosy and is walking distance from the excellent Degenija restaurant which serves excellent hearty Pizzas. The Park entrance is only a couple of minutes... More

Marija and her family got out of their way to make you stay a comfortable and assist you in what you need! The park is a short drive away! There is a market right across the road from Marija's House. It is very clean and comfortable ! A wonderful stay.

We stayed in House Marija for two nights, so we were able to visit the Plitvice Lakes twice. On arrival, Marija gave us two glasses of a local drink for free and was able to tell us about the different routes we could walk in the Plitvice Lakes. Our room was very well cleaned and had a nice feeling thanks... More
