The weather was foggy during our stay at Velika planina and unfortunately we didn't get to see the fairytale view, but the cabin was beautiful, cozy and warm. The cows were friendly and our dog liked it, too.
We stay at this cottage for 3 days with kids (3 and 5 years old) . The time here is the best memory of our trip in Slovenia. The cottage owns the great view of Velika plannia , we enjoyed sunrise, sunset, fogging and even the raining day makes you feel relaxing . Especially the amazing 5 million stars in the mid night. So Incredible! There are mountains with snow on the top which you can easily see in the cottage. Also you can just sit outside the cottage and drink some wine's then enjoy every moment. Outside the cottage there's a BBQ place and you could chop the firewood there. We made a competition of chopping fire woods with kids. That's one of the special experience for us too.
Velika Planina has lots great view to see and the best nature place for kids to enjoy. We went to a lovely church which took about 30 mins walk with kids and played there. My little boy even fell asleep when he lied on the grass. So cute! From there you can see lots of cottages and enjoy the sunshine.
About this cottage, it's very clean , new and well-equipped. There are 4 single beds in the attic which is the most enjoyable secret base for the kids. I love the stove most, just lay down on the sofa and looking at it which makes you unwind. Rok is the best host I meet. He always be in touch and provides lots info. before you traveling. He even prepared a welcome board in Chinese with our name. On the way to the cottage, Rok introduce some info. of Velika planina , good to know more about the place you're going to stay. I defiantly recommend this wonderful fairytale place and best host to who is looking for a perfect trip here.
It was a family trip. We were there only two days but in those two days we saw so many things such as an amazing thunder, beautiful waking up of the sun, the big forest rabits and other creatures, but the most beautiful part was the house we were living in. Everything was so tidy, the beds were clean and so soft. There was a place for a romantic evening, for a children play and even for a midnight sauna time. The owner prepared the nicest welcome and we were able to realy relax there. The place were amazing, the owner is incredible - I would really recomend it to everyone who wants to run away from the urban area.
Well this was an experience... but an amazing one!
We booked the house without knowing exactly how beautiful the location is. The journey to the top was in the dark but thanks to that it made it more adventurous. We made our way to the top and found the house easily. It is super easy to just type the address to your GPS and it will take you exactly to the place. The house is very beautiful, warm and spacious. The 5 of us had more than enough space. Most importantly - the awesome welcome was a wine bottle and freshly baked cookies by the amazing host Rok! The sauna is amazing and we could not complain about anything.
When waking up - the first thing you should do is looking out the window! SPECTACULAR VIEWS! Crazy beautiful location, it's recommended to take a lot of pictures!!
On our way down we met our host Rok and his wife. Rok is such a great person - funny, welcoming and nice.
Some tips - recommended to leave your car to the parking lot which is 2.5km from the house, the walk is uphill and better to do it during the light time, but no problem in the dark aswell.
We are more than satisfied with the stay and will definitely recommend this place to everyone!! An amazing experience in the Slovenian mountains. Thank you, Rok for hosting us!!!
I visited this cozy cottage in April 8th, 2017 with Slovenian friend. Spent a night here.
Koča Ojstrica is on the right spot for hiking.
I took 3 hours to walk up there but it's worth it!
Cottage is new, clean and well decorated.
It's equipped with water and electricity
That means you can shower using warm water among freezing temperature!
But wait! It lasts only about 5 mins then you will frantically run to the fireplace. Haha. It was really fun. Friend told me but i didn't think it was true.
Kitchen has all what you need (pots, pans, cutlery, glasses etc) plus long dinning table and the couch.
There is a fireplace for heating. Firewood is also prepared for you.
There are 2 lovely bedrooms; one under the roof and another one under the ground. Amazing! I've never seen this! Bedrooms are equipped with blankets and pillows.
The place has stunning views-high up on a trail to a mountain plateau. The surroundings are beautiful. The air is so fresh and clean.
The owner- Rok is awesome!!!
He is so friendly and helpful
He came to the cottage the next morning and took us to other cottage for tasty Slovenian breakfast. I really enjoyed my stay here
Everything was just perfect.
I definitely will recommend to everyone. Hope to visit this place again
I heard a lot about Velika planina, but it was for the first time that I went to see this beautiful place. What a view! I mean, mountains who are breathtaking, sunrise in the next morning and peace around you gives you the feeling just for a moment that you're the only living creature on this planet. It really was an awesome experience!
And what a nice, cosy cottage, where I stayed for a night! It is all renovated and warm with fireplace and floor heating. The owner of the cottage Rok really did an excellent job and furthermore he's taking good care for his guests too. You can count on him if you need a help in any situation.
They say there is no place like home, but I would change that thought into there is no place like koča Ojstrica! :)
Ojstrica house is very cute, romantic place. You can enjoy amazing view and have feeling to get in touch again with nature. The owner is also very nice. I liked relaxing atmosphere of the house.
