About John and Elaine Pearson
We are an English couple who discovered Lake Bled in 2006 when returning from a caravan holiday in Montenegro and Croatia. We liked the country and its people so much that we came back and bought a house. We renovated the house, divided it into 3 separate apartments and entered the holiday rental business. During our years of renting we have been privileged to be hosts to lots of wonderful people, from all over the world. We hope you will visit our apartments soon!
John and Elaine Pearson purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why John and Elaine Pearson chose Bled
We looked all over Slovenia for a property then chose this house because of its fantastic views and its location close to Bled but within a peaceful village community rather than the anonymity of a tourist resort. Where better to enjoy the beauty and charm of Slovenia than in a village, among local people rather than tourists? If you need the amenities of the town, Bled is just 5 minutes away by car. Better still, take a 30 minute stroll to the town and enjoy the beautiful countryside.
What makes this Apartment unique
Fantastic views, easy access to routes around Slovenia, close to Bled and its Lake, superb walks on the doorstep .......... In the village there are 2 restaurants and bars, a well-stocked grocery store and a bike share scheme. If you like walking, there a lots of beautiful walks from our doorstep.
100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date. 50% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
Lovely apartment in a stunning setting
A fair-sized, clean & attractive apartment where the balconies along two sides had fantastic views. Charming village near to beautiful, but touristy, Bled. Easiest to access by car although walking & cycling quite easy. Helpful proprietor nearby.
Quiet, clean, comfortable
John and Elene were excellent hosts. Very friendly and accommodating. John provided clear and precise directions to the apartment, to the point that I did not need GPS to find it. He provided all we needed to know about visiting Slovenia and the surrounding area. I would highly recommend, and I would stay there again.
Thank you for this review. We like it most when our guests make good use of the information available and really enjoy their stay in Slovenia.
Lovely apartment within walking distance of Lake Bled.
Beautifully located and well appointed apartment close to Lake Bled. Many lovely country and river walks, snug little township of Ribno and trout fishing in the river. Friendly and helpful hosts, quite a find, in the beautiful Slovenian countryside.
Thank you for your kind words. We chose the house because of its location with superb views. Great that you enjoyed your visit to Slovenia.
Lovely apartment with splendid views from both balconys. Set in a peaceful village.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Ribno, a comfortable 30 min walk into Lake Bled. Lots of other walks from the door step. Good friendly bar just a few mins away . The apartment was very comfortable & well kept .The shuttle bus from Hotel Ribno into Bled & other places very convenient and at 1 Euro very cheap , only operates in the summer months though. Beautiful place, would definitely go again.
Thank you for this review. We are pleased that you enjoyed our location. The town of Bled can be very noisy and busy in the holiday season. That's why we prefer to be here in Ribno: not far from the tourist scene, but far enough away to be fairly peaceful. Also, of course, the experience of Slovenia is much more authentic in a real village than in a tourist town.
Maybe we will see you next year?
lovely apartment in a beautiful area. Lovely hosts, well equipped and well presented property; will intend to go back some time.
Thank you for this positive review. We take delight in our guests' enjoyment of this beautiful area and we are pleased that our efforts to equip the apartment and make it comfortable have been successful. We look forward to your next visit.
Delightful apartment in a stunning location.
This was our third trip to the Lake Bled area. The delightful Balcony Apartment is in a stunning location in the village of Ribno, a couple of kilometres south of Bled. The apartment had everything we expected, plus lovely views from all windows. John and Elaine were very friendly and helpful, with lots of useful advice. We stayed for six nights, but wished we had come for much longer; this is an ideal base for walking, cycling and touring the local area. Would definitely recommend.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We really appreciate your positive comments. We chose our house because of its excellent location with superb views and we are pleased that you agree. It was a pleasure to meet you and we enjoyed our conversations. Maybe we will see you again on your 4th visit to Slovenia?
