About the property

Welcome to your second home in our quiet neighborhood.

The upper floor of a 1970s house on the foothills of Mount Vodno in the neighborhood of Crnice (Tsrniche) in Skopje is available for rentals of a week or longer. From this 2 bedroom house you can walk 15 minutes from here to the Skopje main square with all its monuments, then take the Stone Bridge to the Old Bazaar and enjoy all the city has to offer.

The house is 20-30 minutes's walk from the city’s main square, and features a garden with a hammock, lush vegetation and fruit trees. Pick organic fruits and veggies from the yard, take a nap in the hammock after long day of sightseeing. It's home.

Two bedrooms, one bath, and spacious living room, dining room and kitchen. There are also tables and chairs in the yard, for dining, having coffee or just sitting and socializing. Upright piano in the living room. Can comfortably house 4 people. Two more people could stay in the living room on the poullout sofa, if necessary.

Our WIFI is strong and it comes for free. Tea and coffee is at your disposal in the kitchen. So are cups, dishes, basic pots and pans, and some spices.

The house (Sirma's House) is within 5 minutes walking from a supermarket. Free public parking is possible at a location nearby.

We can provide you with a local mobile sim card if you wish - you just need to purchase credit for it in a nearby convenience store.

We can arrange for a taxi pick up from the airport (20 Euro) or bus station if you give us the specifics of your arrival.

Tsrnitche (Crnice) is a desirable residential neighborhood of Skopje, right on the hill over the city. It is short walking distance to the very center, but also away. Being higher on the hill, the neighborhood has somewhat better air quality and it is cooler in the summer. In a city like Skopje where loud music is played in outdoor cafes late into the night, our neighborhood is the place for people who like to get a good night sleep.

You can walk, take a taxi (around 2 Euro from the center), or take bus #16 and get off the the Reptil Market stop.

Ask the taxi driver to turn on his taximeter and you should not pay more than 150MKD from the center to our house. I would avoid the taxi drivers who approach you at the bus/train station. they are usually illegal and like to overcharge tourists. Arrange a pick up in advance, or walk away from the bus/train station and catch a cab at the nearby Vero Mall.

If you take the Airport Bus, please get off at Holiday Inn and from there you can take a taxi or the bus to the house. (Ask at the hotel where bus 16 stops to go to Tsrnitche. Buses cost about 0.50 Euro a ride)

Stay with us if you like to experience a simple Skopje house. Please note that this house does not have central heating and as the weather gets colder, heating will be provided by electrical heaters (on and off basis) and hallways and other shared spaces may be chilly.

Please note that Macedonian law requires that we charge each person 40 MKD a night in tourist tax. That is included in the listed price.

About Zoya

I am an international development consultant. Love to travel and meet people from different cultures.

Zoya purchased this house in 1974

Why Zoya chose Centar

This is my family home which we inherited from my parents. Simple older house, nothing fancy. It is in a great neighborhood - close to everything but still tucked away in the hills.

What makes this house unique

My father was an avid gardener so we have inherited a beautiful garden full with fruit bearing trees. I also like to plant vegetables and pick them fresh form the vine in the summer. You will enjoy fresh apples, figs, grapes, tomatoes, peppers, medlars... depending on the season

warm and friendly welcome

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived at the house we where welcomed very warmly and made to feel very comfortable. The house is located in a quiet neighbourhood, but is close to local grocery shops also 15 minute walk to the city centre.

The whole house was well kept and comfortable. we enjoyed sitting in the garden with its lovely shady trees. I felt very safe and comfortable in this house and hope to go back and have a longer stay one day.
