The apartment was better than is described online. It had everything and more than you would need for your stay near Bled. It was within walking distance of downtown Bled. this is very important because the parking is limited downtown. There is a convenient market within walking distance. The house itself was clean, cheerful, spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms were modern and clean, The house had beautiful views of the majestic mountains and at times you can see Bled castle. This was the perfect location for us because we were able to walk to the tourist areas of Bled and had easy access by car to the rest of the Julien Alp region of Slovenia. We easily drove to Karanjska Gora several days to hike, then drove to the Bohinj area and hiked Vogel. There are lovely little medieval towns to explore nearby and wonderful restaurants as well. Some of these we were able to walk to. Alison was eager to answer our questions and got back to us immediately when we had a question concerning the operation of the dryer. This was a wonderful place to spend a week. We are so happy to have stayed here.
PROS: On a quiet cul-de-sac. Convenient to the highway and the charming city of Bled. Nice patios. Comfortable beds, but low to the floor. Nice furniture in the main room. WiFi strong on the main floor, not so much upstairs. Cozy wood burning stove. Large bathrooms with heated drying racks and floors. Adequate kitchen. The refrigerator door needs to be reversed as it opens on the wrong side.
CONS: Not handicap friendly. No railing up the front steps which are slippery when wet. Steep angled staircase to the upper level. Inconvenient dividers between the doorways on which you can stub your toe.
Washing machine, but no dryer. When on vacation you come with a limited amount of time and clothes. It takes more than 24 hours to dry clothes on the provided drying rack. Jeans take 3 days. A dryer would be so nice considering the price of the house.
Only one set of towels-- one bath towel and one hand towel-- per occupant for one week. Slippery floors in the shower and bathtub. Bring a rubber mat. No credit card accepted as payment. Security deposit returned on the day of your departure in person by the manager.
Nice enough house, but be aware.
