Amazing place right in the centre of beautiful Ohrid. Stunning views from the balcony and a really beautiful and quiet home to stay. Our hosts were fantastic, talked us through the area, things to do, places to eat and even gave us some Macedonia white wine. Highly recommend if you’re visiting Lake Ohrid.

We stayed in the top-floor apartment with our two children. The apartment is cosy, well-furnished, comfortable, perfectly clean. The view is just amazing from the terrace. The hosts, Sandra and Emil are very friendly and helpful, they gave us great tips for restaurants, what to visit, etc. Breakfast was great, too. Location is excellent, in the middle of the old town, close to the lake. We hope to return one day, as two days were not enough! Driving in the old town is tricky, so if you come by car, make sure you do not follow the GPS but drive straight down on the wide road from the Upper Gate until you reach St. Sophia church.

Extremely happy with our comfortable room. Location central to the old town and the top floor apartment with balcony has terrific views over the lake and the local church. Owners exceptionally friendly and helpful. Ohrid is a very interesting town in a spectacular natural setting and is extremely good value for a holiday destination.

We were met by the owner Sandra who was extremely helpful. The apartment was large and tastefully decorated with every facility you might need. It was in the best position in Ohrid old town with the balcony overlooking St Sophia church. Wow

From arriving in beautiful Ohrid things just got even better. On arrival was met immediately by the Owner Sandra who could not have been more helpful. I was shown into a large spotlessly clean apartment with a view over the 1000 year old church. The apartment had all the facilities you would need including a well equipped kitchen. Its a couple of minutes walk into the centre of town but there are a host of great restaurants, bars and a shop in the immediate area. It has to be one of the best accommodation experiences I have enjoyed in Europe. Cant wait to return.

We recently spent 8 nights in the top-floor lakeview studio and absolutely loved it! The balcony is big, cool and private, perfect for sharing a bottle of good Macedonian wine, watching the boats on the water and listening to the traditional music wafting up from the restaurant downstairs. The apartment is well furnished and cozy, quite dark and quiet at night. The hosts, Sandra and Emil, are friendly, helpful people who had good suggestions for things to visit in Ohrid. We highly recommend this apartment!

A large, spacious room with kitchenette & balcony overlooking the Lake & St Sophia's. Quiet & comfortable - up 3 steep flights of stairs so minimize luggage!! On street car parking is provided - suggest you leave the car there!! Walking is definitely recommended in the old town's fascinating but narrow, cobbled alleys. Excellent restaurants just steps away. Strangely,the Guest house was unstaffed - but for a child -on arrival & on our departure!!

Response from Sandra J, Owner at Jovanovic Guest House
Responded Jul 22, 2016
Dear, We are so Sorry for the inconvenience our absence might've caused you. Me and my husband weren't at home at that time you came and left, The child that you mention is our daughter and she wasn't alone but with her grandparents who both don't speak English-and she does! I am sure you've met them (my mother and father- in law) when they've welcomed you in the center and helped you with the car and parking, and showed your apartment and gave you the keys! My daughter fault is (I guess it is fault from your point of view) that she was trying to make your communication with her grandparents easier! I am proud of her.

This family run guest house is fantastic place to stay in Ohrid if you are up to 4 people. The hostess was amazingly friendly, social and informative. Despite she actually was in a hurry for a wedding (not her own:-) she gave so much information about what to see and do in Ohrid along with her great personality. Just after some few minutes she felt as an old friend. The location is perfect in the old part of town away from the busy tourist main street, but close enough to it for a evening walk. The guest house is actually right on the suggested walking trial that leads you around to the main sights of Ohrid. From the balcony you have a great view over the St Sophia church. It is very close (50 steps) to a small pebble beach where you can spend the whole day or just cool down after walking around town. I congratulate everyone who book this place – good choice, great value, easy vacation! If you arrive by car, read carefully the instructions from Jovanovice, that they'll send to you in advance. The old town is full of narrow streets with lots of parked cars. The most skillful driver will have problems. However, Jovanovice knows this and will e-mail you directions before and you'll find the only broad street in town, accessible for any vehicle, all the way up to the guest house!
