We arrived on 25th Jul to stay over for a night at House Marija. Very clean and tidy room with nice balcony, living room and a kitchen. For me its a perfect place to stay over at plitivice lake. Just 5 mins driving from no.1 entrance. Definitely recommend it.

We had a fabulous stay at House Marija and would go back in a heartbeat. The room was flawless with all of the amenities we could ask for. Marija was a super friendly host and was very helpful. She greeted us with homemade juice from the flowers in her garden and offered us the use of her laundry services (for... More

This Guesthouse is really lovely, nice double room, very clean bathroom. The host, Marija, was very welcoming - obviously used to guests asking about the park etc. We were just a 5 minute drive from Entrance 1, which was perfect (parking at the entrance is not too expensive - about 7kn/hr). There was a nice restaurant, recommended to us by... More

Marija keeps the place spotless. Our accommodations were roomy and comfortable. Plenty of AC, even for American tastes. Breakfast comprehensive. Excellent homemade Slivovitz. My only question: what's with the sugar water?

This is an excellent location for visiting Plitvice National Park which is just a short drive away. We had a good sized comfortable room with a balcony perfect for recovering after walking miles round the lakes. Excellent breakfast with home made jams, elderflower cordial and decent juice. There was a fridge and kettle for guests and help yourself home-made cherry... More

Plitvice is paradise and the view from this house is not less. Marija is a good host. 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.
