Our house is very cosy, children friendly and easy to clean, mostly kept in a a practical scandinavian style.

The space

Hi everybody!

Come and stay in our home, 20 or 30 min from the seaside, depends what you like. Our house is 550 m high, on a small hill, its beautifully fresh on hot summer days. All rooms are air conditioned. We are only 10 min from the Slowene border, 200 m from the old road 'Petrolejska', which connects Trieste with Zagreb - Wienna - Budapest.

We are renting two rooms - one room with two double beds (one couch-bed and one loft-bed) and one room with a double bed; the bathroom with a toilette and shower is next door. There is enough parking space, green area and garden. Just to be clear - we do not rent the entire house, we just rent two rooms. In some cases the two rooms are sharing the same shower, but there are separate toilettes (two toilettes). I am cleaning the shower every day if two rooms are sharing it.
If you insist to have your own shower - tell us, and we will make it possible.
We serve breakfast free of charge and cook dinner if you wish - we charge between Euro 10 - 20, depends what you like to eat.
We offer laundry service for 5€ extra.
The neighborhood is quiet, it is a nice family home suburb not far from the historic village centre Marčelji. There is a famous and inexpensive fish restaurant nearby...there are others, too. Shops, a post office and banks are in the village centre, 2,4 km away.
The city bus runs every hour, the bus stop is 100 m from our house.

We like children & animals - both are welcome. We have a little playroom for children next to the big room, a playground in the garden, and a kennel behind the house, if you want your dog to stay outside; inside the house it is possible, too, we have adapted facilities.

We rent for a minimum of three days.

We are looking forward to meet you, welcome to House Alex!

We stayed 3 nights at Alex's. It was perfectly positioned for us. Out of the hustle and bustle of Rijeka but an easy drive the the beach towns down the coast. The room was very spacious with a double bunk top and bottom and air-conditioning for the hot nights. We slept better here than anywhere else on our trip! Alex was a great host. Made two beds for us so we could sleep separately and provided us with a delicious breakfast. We felt really welcome in her home. We left relaxed and rested for the next leg of our road trip! Thanks Alex!

Alex and her son are really nice people. The house is very clean and neat. Breakfast is great (is included in the price) and if you like, she cooks a really nice dinner for a small price (no meat). There are many dogs and cats because off the shelter she runs, but we didn't mind (our allergy was not triggerd at all, because she keeps everything very clean)

Alex is a very intelligent lady and a welcoming helpful host. The room is large - as a matter of fact, it is almost a 2-room suite with a very spacious walk-in closet and its own bathroom next door. Plenty of parking space in the yard. And yes, that fish restaurant mentioned in the description is really good. Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Thank you Alex.

We had a great stay at Alex. It's a really warm house and you have all the facilities you need for having a pleasant stay. Alex helped us a lot and gave us all the information we needed! Even when Alex wasn't there, there was still her son who could help us. Also during breakfast you have everything you need! In and around the house you can find a lot of cats and dogs. They 're all really kind and domestic. It's great to see how much Alex care for them.

Alex runs a cosy, stylish and comfortable home. She helped us with every detail of our journey. She speaks croatian, german,english and italian perfect. We were provided with a tasty breakfast every day. We love her french toast. Alex ha una casa molto moderna e gradevole. Ci ha aiutato e dato consigli per qualsiasi cosa avessimo bisogno. Parla perfettamente croato, tedesco,inglese e italiano. Ci ha deliziato ogni giorno con una buona colazione abbondante. Alex hat ein sehr gemütliches und schönes Zuhause. Sie hat uns bei allen Kleinigkeiten rund um unseeren Aufenthalt geholfen. Sie spricht Kroatisch, Deutsch, Englisch und Italienisch. Täglich hat sie uns ein leckeres Frühstück gezaubert. Wir lieben ihren French Toast.

We liked our stay at Alex'. She really is a friendly host! The children were excited to communicate with cats and dogs, and our dog felt herself very much at home in a good company, because all the furry inhabitants of the house lack any aggression and are very welcoming. We could easily leave her in the garden for the day and be quite safe. The cleanliness of the house is really amazing especially when considering the amount of guests and pets! It was a pity we had to leave, as there were still so many things to expolre in the surroundings and Alex came with good advice! The only thing that may be improved is the internet connection in the room :)
