About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom with lovely garden and colourful forest, close to center

WELCOME to 4 star, self contained 2 bedroom apartment, available for 1 - 6 guests. Perfect for couples, friends or families. Only a short drive from the city center.

It was a clear lifestyle choice for me and my family; to live in harmony with nature, connected to the changing seasons without sacrificing comfort and a sence of beauty. We open our home to guests in the first place to share this space of simple landscape's beauty with people from around the world. Come and see.

GREEN DREAM GUEST HOUSE is an oasis of peace inside of the city, located on a quiet cul-de-sac. This is a place to relax with nature, here you can watch the sun softly rise over the trees in colorful forest... and when you want to spend time in an exciting place, just go into the city center.

SIZE OF THE ENTIRE APARTMENT is 110 square meters. Composed of: a living room with a comfortable sofa which can be converted into a cosy double bed; a large living/dinning room with a fully equipped kitchen and a great open fireplace/barbecue; a bathroom with toilet and shower and another separated toilet. There are two double bedrooms, one with an extra single bed, its own living space, ensuite shower and walk-in-robe. So, this 2 bedroom apartment can comfortably host 6 people. It is self-contained with a separate entrance and a parking spot.

GREEN DREAM APARTMENT is very special, a different place with eco designed furnishings, clean fresh air, lovely garden at rear and colourful forest on the hill beyond. In and around of the Apartment is your private area (for guests) but when you pass through a simple green fence you will find Green Dream garden which is area where you can meet our family and share your stories and experiences with us.

This house we particularly recommend for families with children. Here you'll find everything in one place: a safe place for children and plenty of rest.

Location is also ideal for people who wanted to visit Zagreb and areas in Slovenia and Croatia because highway access is pretty fast.


Check-in: any time after 16.00 h (4pm). Check-out: before 10:00 h (10am).

We hope to welcome you in Green Dream Guest House in Zagreb. With best regards,

Helena & family

About Helena

Hi! My name is Helena and I live my green dream together with my husband and our four children in one hidden oasis in Zagreb, at the foot of colorful mountain Sljeme. You can join us in our Green Dream Apartment. We hope you enjoy the area as much as we do and have a memorable stay!

Helena purchased this house in 2016

Why Helena chose Zagreb

Zagreb is an extraordinary place, full of history, of culture, markets, bars, clubs, street festivals and restaurants. It is also a city of green parks and walks, with many places to visit in the beautiful surroundings.

A reality Dream

  • 5 of 5

Un superbe appartement, parfaitement équipé et confortable, tout près de Zagreb et pourtant dans la nature. La campagne à la ville en quelque sorte. D'innombrables petits détails témoignent de l'attention d'Helena vis à vis de ses hôtes : un petit cadeau de bienvenue vous attend sur la table, gel douche et shampoing ne manquent pas dans les salles de bain, un recueil (en croate et en anglais) de toutes les adresses utiles et sites à visiter vous dispense de sortir votre "Routard", un adaptateur universel est même prévu pour ceux qui vivent sous d'autres normes électriques ainsi qu'un parapluie de secours pour les imprévoyants, etc ... L'accueil d'Helena est chaleureux et sincère. Vous aurez du mal à trouver mieux.

One of the best appartments we had

  • 5 of 5

The appartment in the Green Dream Guest House is one of the best appartments we had in the last years. It is fully equiped with all the things you need for a pleasent stay. It provides enough space for 5 persons, espacially for children.

Situated in the outskirts of Zagreb you feel more in a village than in a big city. The Green Dream Guest House gives the feeling of a holiday in the country but you are in the centre of Zagreb within some minutes.

Excellente adresse sur Zagreb

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour chez Helena.

La maison est idéalement située sur les hauteurs de Zagreb, à 10 minutes en voiture du centre. Vous disposez de deux chambres, dont une immense, investie immédiatement par nos enfants qui se sont sentis comme chez eux. Les chambres sont climatisées, ce qui a été bénéfique car il a fait très chaud durant les quelques jours où nous étions présents.

Helena nous a accueillis chaleureusement, nous avait préparé toute la documentation nécessaire pour préparer notre visite sur Zagreb et aux alentours. Durant le séjour, elle a été aux petits soins avec nous, nous proposant régulièrement des légumes du jardin, tout en restant très discrète.

Si nous retournant sur Zagreb, nous retournerons sans hésiter chez Helena : encore merci pour tout !

Lovely nature retreat in the city

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious and well-appointed. It is obvious that the owners take great care to be "green", to practice the three "R"s -- reuse, reduce, recycle. This is a little piece of paradise just 10 minutes drive from the city centre, and since it is half-way up the hills surrounding Zagreb, the air is fresh and cooler.

There were 3 of us sharing the apartment for 2 nights, and having 2 bathrooms was a definite plus! The kitchen has everything one may need, and most windows have mosquito screens for those not in favour of a/c. It was a perfect place to re-charge our batteries after a trans-Atlantic flight.

Helena is a most gracious host, we were pleasantly surprised to find her home-grown tomatoes and cucumbers waiting for us as well as a bottle of mineral water. We were also happy to find no traces of cigarette smoke in the apartment, a rarity in Croatia.

We hope to stay at Green Dream again when we visit Zagreb in the future.

Thank you, Helena!!

Very nice & Green place,at a quiet part of Zagreb

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay; the apartment being very comfortable, with plenty space for five tall Dutch people and also very authentic and characteristic. Although the structure of the apartment is an old farmhouse, the apartment is actually as good as new. The reception from Helena was very warm and friendly and the fruits and vegetables from the garden tasted great. The garden is very nice, big and green, so staying outside was a pleasure. Sitting on the slope of a mountain, it must also be a good point to walk or bike, we only had time for one brief walk, which was nice. The location is quiet, but yet not to far away from the city Centre. I spent a little over a week in the GREEN DREAM GUESTHOUSE, time flew, and I could easily have stayed there much longer! I'm sure my friends felt the same...
