The house is the quintessential Bohinj experience. It is unique and there is no other place quite like it for sharing/renting in all Bohinj.
Rustic-house 13 Suite A (Suite B is a different listing) consists of two bedrooms, balcony and bathroom.
We live on the ground floor. Accommodation for guests are on the second and third floors. We have our own entrance door and so do the guests.
The suite on offer consists of two areas.
One bedroom is quite large with a king-sized bed, living area with a 40" LCD TV and balcony.
The second bedroom is smaller and has two single beds.
There is approximately 50 square meters (540 sq feet) of space.
The private bathroom is separate from the two bedrooms.
The suite is suitable for 2, 3, or 4 persons.
The suite can be booked as a double room in which case the smaller room will become unavailable.
For 3 or 4 persons the smaller room is offered with the large room.
It is not possible to have just the smaller room and it is also not possible to have a third person in the larger room.
Room has private balcony but there is also a shared large common balcony with great views of the village and mountains.
Wifi is available free in every room.
There is a common kitchen and lounge room which are full of character with photography as a central theme.
The kitchen is available as a dining area for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A microwave oven is available to heat pre-made meals.
It is not possible to cook in the kitchen and we feel that many guests do not wish to enter the house with heavy cooking smells.
There are many inexpensive restaurants nearby serving delicious Slovene food.
The common room is spacious and surrounded by beautiful photographs.
There is only one other guest accommodation (Rustic-house 13 suite B, which is a separate listing).
Annat att notera
The original house is over 200 years old.
It was first renovated between 2001 and 2008, and again in 2015.
We are a family with two young children who go to school. So please, after 23:00 the place needs to be quiet.
The functioning of the house is fully modern, however, the infrastructure is not.
There is no town sewage and as such all wastes remain on the premises. Please do not dispose of foreign materials such as latex into the toilets.
Please use bins provided.
Guest will see us (Australian/Slovene family) as often as they want.
After school or during school holidays our children and children from the village will be regularly running around the place.
The wife after her day job is quite often poking about in the backyard. And I am almost always at home if guests need anything.
I am Burmese by birth, an Aussie by citizen and Slovene by heart.
My wife is Slovene with roots going back to Biblical times. Our two kids are not only Slovenes but are "Bohinjc" meaning "from Bohinj".
My wife and I, a lot of friends and relatives helped to renovate the house. It took 7 years. It nearly killed me but we made it.
We ran the place as a hostel for 7 years but everyone said that it was too nice to be a hostel. We agreed and now call ourselves Rustic House 13.
We are still offering a real travel experience but now there are fewer guests to cater for. So, you now get more of our attention, time and service.
The only thing I like more than running the B&B is to take guests on photo tours. But that's another story. If you want, you can check us out by searching The light in Bohinj or thelightinbohinj. Well, you know, you can add the "dot" and the "com" at the end of the "thelightinbohinj" with the "www" at the start.
Please come and visit us. Only then you will understand why we love what we do.
