This place acts as a great stopping point to visit the lakes, and also the Barac Caves (which are a must see). It's 10 minutes away from the lakes by car which means it isn't too busy in the morning.


Staff were incredibly friendly and tried to answer all our requests, including arranging for her neighbour to drop is of and collect is from Plitvice lakes. We would definitely stay again.

Close to the national park. Friendly host and atmosphere. Thank you.


Although not right next to the national park, this is a great little village to stay in as the bus from Zagreb/ to Split stops in the village, about 5 minutes walk from the apartment. The owner helpfully arranged for her neighbour to take us to the park and pick us up when we wanted, for only £6. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. It is a quiet village to stay in but there is a couple of restaurants 5 minutes away and a little shop next door to the apartment.


Although I only stayed for one night, everything was fine. The room was tidy and cozy. The hostel is 10 mins away from Plitvice lakes but there are buses that stop at Grabovac station so it's alright. There are also a few restaurants near the hostel so I had no trouble looking for food. Ivanka was accommodating and nice. I totally recommend this hostel!


Beautiful location and such a wonderful host! Would recommend to anyone visiting Plitvice!!

Quiet and peaceful room. Clean and comfortable. Walking distance to the bus stop in the hamlet of Grabovac. Our host was very helpful and called the bus company for us to make sure they could pick us up at the nearby bus stop rather than at the park entrance, which is a few miles down the road.


We really enjoyed our stay at Apartment Sara. She is a very friendly lady and the accommodation is nice and suitable for stopover before visiting Plitvice. There was a mix up in our reservation and to settle things down she offered us a room with lower price which suited us well.


Thanks for having us!


5 minute walk from Grabovac bus station. Easy to catch a shuttle to and from the Plitvice National Park. 5min walk from 2 nice restaurants and shops nearby. Very friendly and helpful host. Rooms are spacious and everything you want. Thanks for awesome stay!


Very nice place! 10 mins drive to Plitvice Lakes NP. Very helpful lady that owns the place :)


Ivanka was wonderful.
