“Comfortable, immaculate accommodation in beautiful surroundings with fantastic hosts; a perfect introduction to Croatia”
Reviewed July 19, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had a fabulous week staying here with family & friends - great weather meant that I was up and out for an early morning run on the forest tracks, spotting deer and other wildlife. The location is delightful, very peaceful, lovely views, and the accommodation is very comfortable, with a great shower! Jeremy and Amanda are very obliging and convivial hosts, extremely knowledgeable about the area and organised some wonderful outings for us - we were so busy horse-riding, canoeing, swimming, rock scrambling, visiting Zagreb, the Plitvice Lakes and wine tasting in Slovenia, that we didn't actually get round to trying out the tennis courts as planned. Great barbecue and outside seating area too, complete with tree-house and lovely views to the mountains. This part of Croatia is very beautiful, but without the tourist crowds. Can't wait to go back.

“Absolute perfection”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

A beautifully presented oak house in the middle of a little rural village in Northern Croatia, just what I want after working 50 hour weeks in the run up to my holiday. The house has 2 separate apartments with further rooms upstairs so can fit 8 if need be. The rooms were immaculate and tastefully designed to fit in with the local region with all the amenities you could need. The views were spectacular and often whilst sitting out on the porch you can see wild deer running through the field. The house comes with your own hob and sink etc and the larger one even comes with a washing machine so you can even do your washing on holiday if you fancy it!!! The owners Jeremy and Amanda couldn't do enough for you and even set us up with a couple of activities for the week including wine tasting, night rafting and rock climbing. I truly wonderful holiday had by all and I couldn't fault it one little bit.

“Comfortable house, delightful hosts, beautiful region with few tourists.”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

We had a really lovely holiday. Amanda and Jeremy have created an excellent base to explore northern Croatia and beyond. The log cabin was tasteful and comfortable and had a picturesque view of a field of running deer. Our two children were free to explore and play outside as the area is so safe. We were introduced to some neighbours and the girls loved visiting the farm there. We enjoyed playing on the tennis court beside the cabin and had coaching from one of Croatia's national champions! At all times our hosts were full of helpful suggestions for things to do and we really felt we were being looked after by friends. Delicious, fresh local food.
The local town of Varazdin is beautiful, and we enjoyed excursions canoeing on the river, driving to Plitvice, to a festival in Serbia and to a relaxing spa in Hungary. Definitely a great place for families or for anyone wanting a place free of the stresses of crowded holiday resorts.

“Great place for an 'away from it all', but active, break.”
Reviewed March 22, 2013 for a stay in May 2012

Well kitted out, authentic wood house in beautiful countryside. An immaculately clean, comfortable and spacious house that could be used by a largish family, a group of friends (as we were) or individual travellers. Amanda and Jeremy advised, organised and took us on trips and activities including thermal lakes and spa, clay pigeon shooting, wineries, castles, hike and (small) climb and local restaurants. Varaždin is not your usual tourist trap but an interesting baroque city and about 10 minutes drive away.

“Idyllic Paradise in Croatia”
Reviewed March 21, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

Staying at Stara Kucha was a fabulous beginning to a fabulous trip. Amanda & Jeremy made sure that we had all we needed while there. The bedrooms are spacious with refrigerators stocked with supplies... and no charge for the yogurt, tea and bread in our room. There are plenty of trails and woods to explore the area on foot during your "down" time. They are fabulous hosts and introduced us to Verazdin in a way that tourists generally do not see. After going to market and buying local foods, we sat on our veranda with local wine, strawberries, cheese and bread and enjoyed the wonderful panorama view from Stara Kucha.
If interested in enjoying Croatia like a native, be sure to ask Amanda (Minty's Choice Croatia) to help you formulate a vacation plan. She was wonderful in setting us up with the right people to make our eco/active vacation memorable. Thank you Amanda & Jeremy

“Stara Kucha”
Reviewed March 19, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed at Amanda and Jeremy's with 3 other friends (24/25 yrs old) following some time spent on the coast. We couldn't have asked for a better stay, a combination of Tennis, Fishing, Canoeing, Walking and even spit roasting chicken in the fire pit was just what we needed after a busy week on the coast and prior to going back to central London. Amanda and Jeremy were fantastic and exceptionally diligent in everything they did for us although. Both a dab hand at scrabble if you fancy taking on a challenge as well! I would highly recommend the Stara Kucha to any of my friends young and old, great find and will definitely be going back this year again. 10/10
