We enjoyed to beautiful days here. Just a few minutes walking distance from the national park, quiet and surrounded by beautiful nature. The host were very kind and nice, givibg you a feeling of home. Always ready to help and assist in planning your stay. The apartmant was warm, cosy, beautifully designed with lots of love and attention. Everything was spotless clean. The breakfast was fantastic with all you could wish for! We are already planning to return next year woth friends! Thank you Miro, Marina, Matija and Melita for making our stay so enjoyable.

Don’t consider staying anywhere else in the Plitvička lakes. You will be welcomed here by Miro and Marina and feel at home immediately. We had the studio room for our family of four - huge room, bathroom, kitchenette, sofa, dining area. Very clean and airy. The lakes are a 10-15 min walk away - unreal scenery - and there is a hidden entrance to get you right there. The main driving entrances are a 10 min drive away. We had a delicious dinner - home cooked and grown. My vegetarian daughter had her favourite meal of the trip - mushroom risotto - prepared especially for her. Breakfast was delicious too. I wish we could have stayed another couple of nights, we will definitely be back.

If you are reading this you are probably considering a visit to Plitvice lakes. I have 2 recommendations (1) stop considering and decide to visit, and (2) decide to stay at villa sumrak. Plitvice lakes are quite simply magnificent, and quite intimate, you can get up close and personal. The issue is how to do this when up to 12,000 others wish to do the same. As we drove to Villa Sumrak we passed entrance gate 1 and then 2, on we drove. Villa Sumrak had our entrance tickets, we were going to have to come back. NO! At Villa Sumrak you can enter at gate 3, with a handful of others. You can get great views of the largest waterfall and also of the lower lakes. And by timing things you can miss the worst of the crowds. And also you can stay at a lovely B&B, with spacious comfortable rooms, great shower, good evening meal and lovely hosts. Recommended!!

Vila Sumrak is a very cozy and neat little house in the Plitvige National Park area. Location is quiet and beautiful, the room was tidy, clean and comforting. Moreover, the owner Mr Miro is welcoming and comforting. He will give you all kind of needed information and advice. Although Vila Sumrak doesn’t have a restaurant, the family does cook dinner and you can join it, provided you inform them by the morning so they can get the food at the market for you too. We felt very relaxed here. However, there were two black marks I’d like to point out: the day we fully spent there, there had been a serious emergency, as one of the houses nearby took fire and burnt completely. The consequence was the fire brigade shut the electricity down in all the village, and the water is delivered to the rooms by an electric pump, so both electricity and water were missing. I believe it would have been professional to makes us find a bucket of water upon return to the house, instead of expecting us to ask for it. After all, it’s unpleasant to be without electricity, but it’s impossible to be without water. Secondly, we discovered the rooms aren’t cleaned and tidied at all daily, unless you explicitly ask for it. This is not specified anywhere, and when we questioned this, we were told we should have put a ‘please clean our room’ card outside of it: unfortunately, no such card was in the room for us to use, so why should we have thought about it? Considering this place is 4-starred, and we spent almost 150 Euros per night (breakfast is NOT included), I don’t feel ashamed in stating that the price spent is not adequate to the service received.

This is one of the most genuine family hotels we have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The whole family were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable. Within 5 minutes of arriving, we literally felt our whole selves relax. Whether this was due to the amazingly beautiful landscape or the genuine calm, friendly manner of the two brothers who greeted us (my daughter and I both felt that this family are gifted with ASMR triggering voices) - who knows! We sat outside on arrival in a beautiful garden with ‘welcome drinks’ and were talked through a map of the area (and given a copy) and things to look forward to. If you don’t have park tickets then the family offer to buy them for you when they go early in the morning to buy for the next day. If you do (and I would advise prebooking) then they will explain how best to enter and navigate the parks ?one day or two); we only had one day and their advised route enables us to experience everything. Absolute unexpected bonuses were the directions to river swimming (10 mins by car) and some truly amazing viewpoints over the falls (15 min walk). Both are fully recommended by us, swimming in the river was such a unique experience, the colour of the water and the feel of your skin when you get out were just lovely. Our room was beautiful (deluxe double with extra bed for our 12 year old). The attention to detail was just lovely. The beds were comfortable and the shower was huge. Bottles of toiletries were provided as well as plentiful towels and extras including sanitary protection and cotton wool. The room had air conditioning, TV, fridge, hairdryer, safe, desk, chairs, a suitcase stand and wardrobe. Even a small stool to enable young children to reach the sink and a stool if needed to use the shower were provided. Rugs and soft furnishings alongside beautiful photographs made the room feel very special. Parking was very close to our room and easy to find. Food - breakfast was lovely and a range of foods were available (extra fee payable) including juice, fresh coffee, a range of teas, cereals, bread, meat, cheese, cookies, eggs, sausage, fruit and so on. It’s served buffet style from 8am. Each evening the family cook dinner (be sure to request it the evening before), there is no menu but you can ask what will be served each day. The spit roasted lamb with bread, salad and potatoes was delicious. Desert is homemade and tasty (with a good natured family rivalry of whose is the favourite). Juices, local wines and beer are also sold and were all deliciously chilled. There is a local restaurant (5 mins by car) with a full menu if you prefer though personally, I would eat at Villa Sumrak. Negatives?? I’m truly picking hairs here: our towels weren’t changed / bins weren’t emptied after our first night (better for the environment and we didn’t really mind); I got bitten quite a few times during our evening meal (note to self - bring repellant) and we weren’t quite sure where to go when we arrived (down the steps and around the back). Overall, would we go back? Absolutely. Would we recommend to our closest friends / family? Definitely. A lovely family who are happy to chat, give guidance or leave you alone (whichever you prefer). This was a truly special, special place to stay where we felt like we mattered. Precious memories made.
