We stayed in the 2 bed apartment, the host was very welcoming and made us pancakes which was lovely. Unfortunately certain areas are starting to look tatty maybe as it is the end of a long busy season. Chipped mugs etc and the toweling bed linen was rough and very uncomfortable to sleep on.All that said it was very cheap... More

We were not able to stay at House Petra because it was so famous and already booked by early birds. They recommended us another kind lady in neighborhood and it was warm and nice in the countryside. Just wanted to say that, although we didn't get to stay there, we could tell the family is all with such warm hearts... More

We were welcomed by honey and what I am assuming is home made liqueurs, they were very nice and quite strong! The apartment was easy to find, plenty of parking, the kitchen had the basic equipment you need to make meals. We stayed here for a few nights, we slept ok each night. The room was warm, and we could... More

This is a nice, clean apartment. We stayed in the 'red' room which is a studio with a double bed, a futon, a table and chairs and a small stove, fridge, sink combo. Everything you would need to make a small meal was there. Also a tea pot and coffee maker was supplied, as were ingredients. The hostess was friendly... More

We loved our stay at House Petra. The location is great if you are planning to visit the popular Plitvice Jezera, and far better value for money than the hotels near the river. The hosts were the most gracious, welcoming and generous people you could hope to meet. We were greeted with home made liquors and pastries, and a fabulous... More

We had the red room which was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated with much attention to detail. The kitchenette was well stocked and the bathroom modern. Nice, green surrounding countryside. Petra and Jelena and their family are welcoming hosts. They invited us to share their Bar B Q and homemade wine one rainy evening. We were pleasantly surprised. It is... More

I loved the place. It was very clean and well maintained. Its furniture and decor seem to have been carefully selected to give character. The view from the porch to the countryside was amazing. I was also pleasantly surprised that through Booking.com, we could expressed our interest on free bike rental. The location is serene. Sound of Cuckoo bird woke... More

It was easy to find, just off the main road when we removed the postal code from our GPS. The zip code caused the GPS to take us to a parallel road of apparently of the same name. So dont use the zip code. Just stay on the main road and go to the edge of the village The Salopek... More
