We stayed here for two nights to go visit the national park.
It's a villa as I imagine most are in these places, on the rustic side. As it's a mountain region, you are very close to the forest and fresh air. This villa is about 20 minutes drive from the Plitvice National Park so if you come by car it is convenient.
The room we stayed in was small and besides the beds there were a couple chairs and a tiny table, a good storage area and a good bathroom. All was very clean and looked after. In the room there was an air conditioner but which had very little power so for cooling we relied on opening the window once it was dark and the temperatures outside went down.
We were disappointed by the absence of a mini-bar/mini-fridge because we had brought some food and water and would have wanted to keep them cool considering the heat. I was pleasantly surprised by the nice toiletries (little soaps, little shower gels and caps, mini sewing kit, little shoe-shine sponge) because I didn't expect them from such a small place. A small inconvenience was that the shower holder was broken. In the room we had one accessible power outlet only.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout (ask for the password at check-in) though in some areas of the room I lost the signal.
Breakfast takes place in the adjacent restaurant and consists of some cold slice meats and cheese, jam, cereal and milk, coffee and tea with some fruit. For us it was just enough though may not satisfy a picky eater.
The receptionist is helpful and will gladly guide you over the phone in impeccable English. She also greeted us several times in our language, which was a nice touch. Try to ask questions and request things upfront as there's not always someone at the front desk 100% of the time. Make sure you have cash in local currency to pay for your stay.
Overall a quiet, relaxing stay and just right for visiting the lakes.
