Great location - 5 minute drive/30 minute walk from Bled; beautiful views from the balconies. Peaceful location and very well-equipped and comfortable apartment. We would (and probably will) return. Could be rented with the other two apartments in the house for larger groups.

“Really lovely location!”
Reviewed June 6, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Balcony Apartment very much. The view is outstanding and the location is wonderful. The kitchen is well equipped and the beds are comfortable. We appreciated the english movie selection in the evenings.
We loved Slovenia, but especially our time in the Bled area. Relaxed, yet plenty to do. If you are in Bled, be sure you visit Vintgar Gorge!

“Great apartment”
Reviewed August 23, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We stayed here for five nights in May. The apartment was large, clean and very well furnished, and John and Elaine were downstairs if you needed any help. Being out of Bled itself was good. The local walks were excellent, but walking into Bled and then right round the lake was one of the highlights of our eight-week holiday.

“Perfect apartment in a perfect setting”

We had a fantastic experience staying in the Balcony Apartment. The reservation process and arrival was seamless. The apartment itself was exactly as advertised and was immaculately clean when we arrived. We also appreciated the option of purchasing a "Welcome Pack" of groceries.

The location was perfect for us. We were close to Bled and the surrounding area, within an easy drive to Ljubliana, but away from the touristy area. The town of Ribno is very peaceful, but there is a convenient little market and a good restaurant in the small town. The view from the balconies is great. There are several nice walks just outside of the apartment.

We stayed with our one year old daughter and had no problems. We were able to use a baby cot and chair during our stay. The owners also allowed us to play in the garden area.

The owners were very pleasant and helpful throughout our entire stay. We would have no problem recommending the Balcony Apartment, and if we find ourselves back in the area, we would definitely stay there again.

“Quiet and Private”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This location was perfect for us because we were able to leave the hectic tourists in Bled and drive a short distance to this tranquil apartment in a small village (Ribno) just outside of Bled. This is a very small country and the drive to all the major sites and cities were very easy to get to. The apartment was small - the kitchen, dining room, and living room were all one small area. However, there was significant outdoor space and two bedrooms. We enjoyed our visit in Slovenia and enjoyed the hiking trails nearby. Both balconies offered really pretty views. There were some basic cooking supplies like olive oil, salt and pepper etc. Plenty of pots and pans and dishes. We did laundry and they had a blow dryer - all very helpful.

Management Response
Jun 2, 2014
We are pleased that you enjoyed your visit to Slovenia. Thank you for your kind comments and 5-star rating. We try to make our guests as comfortable as possible and it is very rewarding to hear that we have been successful. We chose to have a dining/living room combination because we believe it provides more comfort than the living room/sofa-bed arrangement found in many rental apartments. It enables us to have 2 separate, spacious bedrooms, both opening out onto balcony seating areas.

“Great holiday rental experience - we're planning our next trip back”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have stayed at numerous apartments throughout Germany and Austria but this was our first stay in Slovenia. We evaluated many options and finally settled on the "Balcony Apartment". The decision could not have been better.

The Balcony Apartment is located in the quiet village of Ribno. Staying in Ribno was ideal for our family of four (my wife and two children ages 9 and 12) because it allowed us to remove ourselves occasionally from the bustle of bled yet still remain close to all of the area's activities.

We generally travel by train which is how we arrived at the Lesce Bled station. John, one of the co-owners, was gracious enough to transport us from the station to the apartment. Once settled in we traveled by foot and bus for the remainder of our stay. Reaching Bled by foot was an easy 20 minute stroll. If you are more inclined to travel by car or bicycle then the trip is even quicker.

Our stay in the apartment was very comfortable. A balcony on either side was nice because whenever one balcony had sun the other had shade. The kitchen was well equipped for preparing basic meals which we did on several occasions. The apartment was well maintained and clean. Two floor stand fans were a welcome addition serving two purposes: cooling the air and providing "white noise" at night to soften the ring of the nearby church bells which seemed to ring every 15 minutes.

The owners, John and Elaine, were very pleasant to talk with and were always willing to help out whenever needed. They recommended a nearby restaurant which ended up being a splendid place to enjoy a relaxing meal.

On the day of our departure John transported us back to the train station and made sure we were on our way. We were promptly refunded our security deposit.

All in all a very fine place to stay if your are considering a visit to Bled, enjoy walks in the countryside and appreciate a well maintained holiday apartment.
