About Susan Kibler
I 'discovered' the amazing country of Slovenia in 2001. Since then, my husband, son and family and friends have enjoyed every moment of our Slovenian vacations. There is so much to do that even after more than 15 years, we still have a list of things we wish to do.
Susan Kibler purchased this Cottage in 2011
Why Susan Kibler chose Bohinjska Bela
We know immediately we wanted to find a property in this amazing country. Bled has always been our favorite location, yet we wanted to have access by good roads to explore the rest of the country. We had a demanding list. We wanted to be very close to Bled, but have privacy and charm. We wanted great views. The mountains in Slovenia have always enchanted us. We wanted a property with a lot of character, that had all the most modern conveniences so that we could live there comfortably. We instantly fell in love with this home and location. The house itself is over 100 years old. The original owner lived there his entire life. He was a big collector. We have incorporated many or the antiques and items which were left in the house into our interior design. We wanted the house to feel historic, but with a modern edge. When we purchased it we had to install all systems: water, heating, gas, etc. We used all the most modern equipment. We tried to think of the little things like providing additional space below the sinks for convenience. We worked with a great interior designer and construction firm to completely remake the home.
What makes this Cottage unique
We hope you enjoy the views from our deck, the grill and old fashioned sitting area under the grape vines and the other special spaces this historic cottage offers as much as we do!

Lovely house perfect for a family holiday
My family and I recently spent 3 nights at this lovely house. We are 2 adults and 3 young children (ages 2, 7 and 9) and we travel often. This property is exceptional and we only wished we could have stayed longer. In fact, my children said they want to live here! As soon as we walked in the door, it felt comfortable and cozy, plenty of natural light, clean, and well-maintained. The older kids immediately ran out to play in the large open space behind the house. Inside, the kitchen is small but well-equipped and we cooked dinner on two nights. We used the washing machine and that worked well. The bathrooms appear recently renovated and they felt very clean. Upstairs, my children especially liked sitting to draw at the small desk.
For guests with children I would just caution on 2 things about the house. First, the stairs are very steep and could be difficult or dangerous for a small child. My 2 year-old managed but I was nervous. Second, the space between the front door and the street is small and I was surprised how fast the cars and buses drove down the road. There is not a lot of traffic, but the vehicles that did come are fast. So it is very important to supervise children playing outside. Thankfully though, the side garden is spacious and fenced-in, and the space in the back is enormous, so there is plenty of room to safely play.
Susan, the owner, was always responsive and helpful. She provided us with a long list of recommendations for activities, restaurants, shops, etc. which was useful. The whole rental process was easy and clear.
From the house, Lake Bled is about 5-10 minutes away by car. We drove there and hiked up for views and then walked around the lake. It's beautiful. There is one restaurant just a few minutes walking from the house, but you probably need to drive for a grocery store. Ljubljana is also nearby and that's a delightful city. There is a lot to do in the area within a 30-60 minute drive, but since we were there in early April some things were closed. For us though, it was pleasant just to sit in the garden with a glass of wine for the adults and ice-cream for the kids, enjoying the sunshine, open space, and mountain views.
I'd highly recommend this place!
Great house, beautiful setting
This is a lovely, comfortable house in such a pretty setting. We enjoyed being 'at home' and being able to cook our own meals in the well equipped kitchen, or on the BBQ. Eating on the south facing terrace is pleasant but the view to the north is stunning. A great location close to Bled and Lake Bohinj. Highly recommended.
Beautiful home in beautiful surroundings
Lovely, comfortable home, in beautiful
Surroundings. Well equipped for daily living. Pleasant walking in the area, great value pub food near by. Good wifi, great aspect and very well appointed.
Only downside for us( group of friends) was both bathrooms are downstairs, which was a bit awkward, but manageable.
Lots of places of interest within driving distance.
Charming and close to the action.
The cottage is situated in a small village just outside of Bled. Super convenient if you have a rental car. The unit itself is well maintained and charming. You get the small village feel while being very close to all the amenities of Bled. Plenty of room for our family of four.
Home from home
Very comfortably furnished. Great location for exploring Lake Bled and the national park. This property provides everything you could need on a holiday in the form of equipment. We had a wonderful time and hopefully, next year, will consider returning to Bela Luna.
AMAZING HOUSE- Highly Recommend!!
My wife and I were so impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the house, the yard, and the surrounding countryside. The house is in a fantastic location and there is a nice little restaurant 3 min walk away. There is a fenced in yard, which was perfect for our two year old. Our trip to Lake Bled was one of my family's most memorable vacations and we would stay in Susan's house again in a heartbeat!!
Thank you. I am so glad that you loved our home and the location as much as we do. Our son also enjoys playing in the yard very much!
I look forward to welcoming you again. Susan
