We arrived later than we anticipated to the Whitehouse and it was dark before we got there. That said, it was still very easy to find using mapquest. Though not lit up at night, the wood sign for the house on the road and easy to spot so don't bother looking for house numbers - simply look for thier sign.
House looked exactly like the pictures previously posted. The outside is quite lovely and the flowers/front landscaping add a very nice touch.
When we arrived, the owners were not home but one of thier childern was. We were escorted quickly upstairs, handed the key and that was that. The room was sufficiently big enough for our family of four, two children ages 15 and 10. There was a double/queen and two twin singles.
The beds were not particularly comfortable but we were all tired having spend the day in Rovinj, Pula and then driving to the Whitehouse.
There is an okay restaurant across the street. Adequate food and okay prices - not great but ok. We walked across the street for dinner and breakfast the next morning - very convenient.
I agree with the other reviews about the noise volume. The house sits off a road that appears unassuming. However, all through the night trucks flew down the road and the noise kept me up most of the night. The room also was lacking air conditioning and it got HOT. Even with the window open for the cool night breeze the room was hot. Lastly, the bathroom had a sliding wooden door that did not close all the way (more like a closet door than a bathroom door). The shower did not appear to be clean and the towels were small and rough.
I was only able to catch a few hours of sleep because of the truck noise. I got up at 4am and went into the backyard where there were many chaise lounge chairs. Watching the sun rise and having the cool air was very pleasent. The family offers horse back riding so they have a number of horses in the back and lots of open land with views of the mountains in the background.
Very easy access to Plitvice Lakes region and that's why we stayed there. For one night it was fine. When we went to make payment, only the wife was around and she did not speak English - not an issue but something you should know if you are looking for that.
Would I stay here again, - no. To much road noise.
