What Past Guests Are Saying
Main square apartment is a comfortable apartment in a central location. The market which sells a wide range of delicious food is just outside the front door so perfect for self catering.The owner was friendly and helpful and has provided everything anyone could need for a comfortable stay. There is wifi, tv, comfortable sofas, well equipped kitchen, even shower gel. She has thought of everything. We would definitely stay here next time we are lucky enough to be visiting Zagreb.
Response from Maya Novak - 05/05/2013
Thank you very much for your nice review, much appreciated. I'm glad you liked it here and also that we had a chance to chat a little bit. Thank you for the book you gave me, I'm reading it right now and it'll always remind me of you!
Hope to host you again some time!
central to everything
This apartment exceeded my expectations. It was large, comfortable and close to everything - the tram, great restaurants, famous landmarks, and of course, the market! Definitely "the" place to stay for first-timers to Zagreb. Thanks so much for your hospitality Maya!
Response from Maya Novak - 04/30/2013
Thank you very much for your favorable review. I'm glad you enjoyed it here and hope to be able to welcome you again sometimes.

Sehr sch√∂ne Wohnung in super Lage!
Maya¬īs Main Square apartment war f√ľr uns Zagreb-Entdecker das gro√üe Los. Die ausstattung der blitzsauberen R√§umlichkeiten ist rundum perfekt und l√§sst keine W√ľnsche offen. Mit viel Liebe zum Detail hat Maya eine tolle atmosph√§re geschaffen. Hier haben wir uns sofort zu Hause gef√ľhlt - und das mitten in einer (f√ľr uns) fremden Stadt..
Unser Highlight: Wenn wir durch das gepflegte Treppenhaus nach drau√üen traten, fanden wir uns in einem Meer von Blumen wieder. Hier ist jeden Tag Blumenmarkt - eine Fortsetzung des gro√üen Marktes, der ebenfalls nur ein paar Treppenstufen entfernt ist. Hier haben wir alles gefunden, was wir zum t√§glichen Leben brauchten - direkt aus dem Umland frisch auf den Tisch.
Shopping, Sehensw√ľrdigkeiten, Ausstellungen etc. - das meiste war in Laufweite zu erreichen. Stra√üenbahnen in alle Richtungen fanden wir am Hauptplatz in 2-Minuten-N√§he, einen Taxistand gleich an der n√§chsten Stra√üenecke. Pers√∂nliche Empfehlung: ab 2 Personen lohnt es sich immer das Taxi zu w√§hlen.
Besonders gefallen hat uns, dass wir im Vorfeld unseres Besuches via eMail schon alles abkl√§ren konnten: am Flughafen wartete ein reserviertes EkoTaxi (sehr preiswert), bei der Wohnung wartete Maya, unsere so sympathische wie sch√∂ne Wirtin - alles verlief wie geplant, v√∂llig stressfrei. Wie versprochen war sie auch immer telefonisch f√ľr uns erreichbar. Wir verdanken ihr wirklich tolle Insider-Tips! Jedem, der das wirkliche Zagreb erleben will, k√∂nnen wir dieses apartment absolut empfehlen. Noch ein Tip: auf Maya¬īs handschriftliche Empfehlungen auf der Schreibtischunterlage kann man sich 100prozentig verlassen. Wir haben selten so gut gespeist ... Ingrid & Klaus (waren anfang april 2013 in Zagreb).

Liebe Ingrid und Klaus,
Ich bedanke mich herzlich fuer euere Bewertung und freue mich sehr, dass ihr euch bei uns so wie zu Hause gefuehlt habt. Das ist mir das schoenste Lob fuer meine Leistung. :-)
Ich hoffe wirklich, euch bald wieder zu sehen, ihr seid bei uns immer herzlich willkommen!
det kunde inte bli b√§ttre! Fresh, modern l√§genhet mitt i city! Lokationen kan inte bli b√§ttre! Gamla staden bara n√•gra meter ifr√•n, m√•nga mysiga kaf√©er , f√∂rbindelser med sp√•rvagnar och inte gl√∂mma den underbara gr√∂nsakstorget med allt vad du kan √∂nska dig , underbara dofter och f√§rger!Supertrevligt bem√∂tande av v√§rdinnan, m√•nga nyttiga tips finns i broschyrer i l√§genheten och alla bekv√§mligheter .V√§rdinnan har verkligen t√§nkt p√• allt! Man f√•r tom en mob tel med kroatisk kort att anv√§nda under sitt vistelse-v√§ldigt nyttigt! F√∂r mig personligen var det b√§ttre √§n att vara p√• ett hotell! Absolut att rekommendera!
Hemos estados alojados dos noches en el apartamento y todo ha estado genial. Est√° situado en el mismo centro de la ciudad, en la plaza y desde all√≠ te puedes recorrer la parte antigua y la nueva en apenas dos horas, sin necesidad de ning√ļn medio de transporte. Los propietarios (Maya y su marido) son dos perfectos anfitriones que nos ayudaron incluso con el parking y nos dieron todo tipo de explicaciones que necesitamos. Igualmente, ten√≠an en el apartamento todo tipo de informaci√≥n de la ciudad (y actualizada!!!). El apartamento estaba completamente limpio y era amplio para cuatro personas.
Muchas gracias por todo chicos!!

We really enjoyed our stay in this apartment. The owners were extremely helpful and the location was perfect. I would highly recommend this apartment and would stay here again.

Dear Tamara, Thank you very much for your nice review, much appreciated. I'm glad you loved the apartment and the location. Looking forward to hosting you again!
Fenomenalno stanovanje v centru Zagreba
Stanovanje se nahaja pet korakov od trznice, popolnoma opremljeno, z vsem kar potrebujeŇ°,?isto, tiho in prijetno; po?utim se kot doma. Lastnica Maja je mega prijazna, na voljo kadarkoli, z vsemi moŇĺnimi informacijami.
Response from Maya Novak - 03/06/2013
Hvala ti na ovom lijepom komentaru. Jako mi je drago da se "pocutis kot doma", nema ljepseg osjecaja kad moras malo duze vrijeme biti i raditi "v tujini". Za mene je najveci kompliment sto sam tome pridonjela.
A lovely apartment to stay in a beautiful city
Agradable, calido y acogedor apartamento, Dispone de todo lo necesario para estar en el. Al lado del mercado en la calle, con flores y buenos productos. La mejor ubicaci√≥n en Zagreb para desplazarte a visitar cualquier lugar. Maya, encantadora, muy amable, mejor imposible en todos los aspectos, te ofrece todo lo que te gusta y necesitas. Muy buen consejo de restaurantes y dem√°s.. Disfrutamos de una m√ļsica √ļnica y la compa√Ī√≠a mas agradable. Un abrazo. Nos vemos... La Rioja-Spain
Response from Maya Novak - 02/06/2013
Querida Raquel, muchas gracias por tu lindo comentario. Para nosotros fue un placer conocerlos, alojarlos y compartir tiempo con ustedes. Nos alegra muchisimo que se hayan sentido a gusto en nuestro apartamento, como asi tambien en nuestra querida ciudad. Espero que nos volvamos a ver en otra oportunidad! Besos y abrazos!!
Lovely apartment and fabulous host!
We had an amazing time with Maya! She is passionate about hosting and this was obvious from the moment we booked. She was in touch with us by e-mail offering suggestions and answering all our questions months before our stay. She has also specially organized some lovely things for her guests - she organized Eco taxis for us (at an excellent rate) so we didn't have to worry about getting to and from the airport. She has a whole collage of her recommendations for restaurants, bars, shopping etc in the apartment which is really helpful and she's even organized for her guests to get a complimentary dessert at her top recommended restaurant. The apartment itself is lovely. The photos are great and give a good idea of the apartment but it's even better in person. Maya really goes above and beyond in hosting, she was in contact with us daily while we were there. I really can't speak highly enough of Maya and her gorgeous main square apartment.
Response from Maya Novak - 01/27/2013
Dear Jess, I'm speechless! What a wonderful review!! Thank you so much! :-) I tried to make your stay here as nice as possible and it was sincerely, from all my heart. I'm so glad you enjoyed it. Thank you once again for bringing me my favorite vegemite from Australia. Now I'm thinking of you each time I spread it on my sandwich (in a thin layer, to make it last longer :-)). Thanks for everything, wishing you all the best!
La location e' assolutamente fantastica nella piazza centrale di Zagabria,esci dall' edificio e sei nel centro della citta', vicino a tutti i principali luoghi di interesse, un parcheggio custodito a poche centinaia di metri consente di lasciare la macchina anche per piu' giorni senza grossi costi aggiuntivi.L'appartamento e' splendido,pulito, caldo(io sono stato in inverno ma e' fornito di aria condizionata) e super equipaggiato di ogni confort,con 1000 informazioni a cui attingere, wifi ad alta velocita' compreso,superfunzionale per ogni esigenza, molto tranquillo e silenzioso.Ringrazio di tutto cuore Maya e Tiho, marito e moglie proprietari del posto, per l'estrema gentilezza, disponibilita' e grande cortesia, e per tutto il supporto offerto in questi nostri giorni a Zagabria.Assolutamente certo il mio ritorno in questa sorprendente citta'!!
Maravillosos momentos en el apartamento perfecto
Nuestra estancia en el apartamento ha sido estupenda. El tama√Īo, la decoraci√≥n y el equipamiento han sido perfectos. No hemos echado nada en falta y por supuesto, tenemos que a√Īadir la perfecta localizaci√≥n del sitio. Es como estar en Madrid en la Puerta del Sol! Pero tranquilo porque est√° perfectamente aclimatado de manera que no te llegan ruidos del exterior.
Es absolutamente recomendable y adem√°s los due√Īos son super simp√°ticos y est√°n aprendiendo espa√Īol!!!
Response from Maya Novak - 01/03/2013
Muchas gracias por tu mensaje. Fue un placer muy grande haberlos alojado y estamos muy contentos tambien de que les haya gustado mucho el apartamento y la ubicacion. Estamos especialmente agradecidos que hayan compartido una parte de su tiempo libre con nosotros y asi, haber practicado nuestro espa√Īol. Les deseamos todo lo mejor y esperamos vernos pronto, en Zagreb o Madrid.
This was a very enjoyable vacation stay.
Zagreb apartment 10/1/12
This was a lovely apartment with every kind of amenity. Our host, Maya, was very helpful in every way. The rooms were spacious and overlooked the main square. Outside the building were flower vendors of every type and the open air markets were just up the street. Most of the restaurants were within walking distance. In the main square there were trams that ran very often which was good for seeing sights. Best was the view from the large windows. We did not like walking up so many flights of stairs especially when it was dark.
Response from Maya Novak - 12/14/2012
Thank you very much for the review, I'm glad you had a pleasant stay in my apartment. Sorry to hear that you had somewhat issues with the stairs, especially because the apartment is on the first floor and there is even an elevator.
Hope to host you on some other occasion again!
Lovely Stay in Zagreb
Maya's apartment catered to a lovely 5 day stay in Zagreb. The apartment is spacious, cozy, homey and fully equipped with lots of sleeping space, cable, wifi, tea/coffee, laundry and literally in the main square of Zagreb. Maya was so sweet and helpful. We must have emailed her on a daily basis for gym, spa, day trip advice and she always was happy to help and responded within a few hours. She even took us out for a brandy! I would recommend this apartment to anyone.
Response from Maya Novak - 12/11/2012
Thank you for sharing your experience with my future guests. I really enjoyed hosting you and am especially happy that we had the opportunity to get to know each others a bit. If I hadn't taken you at Cica's for the best brandy in town, you just wouldn't be able to experience this wonderful winter pre-Xmas atmosphere in Zagreb.:-)
Spring and early summer are just as nice...looking forward to hosting you again!
Beautiful, clean apartment on the great location
This is a wonderful apartment on the great location, very clean, spacious, very well equipped, with lovely and very kind owner Maya!
We stayed at the apartment for 5 nights, and after 5 minutes we felt like is our new home. Everything was really clean, so clean!! Lot of extra towels, linens..all the equipment you need and in great condition too! How welcome and safe it feels, maybe best describes that our 4 year old daughter didn't want to sleep with us in the bedroom, but all alone on the comfortable sofa bed in the large living room.
We loved the apartment, location and Maya who is so kind and helpful, before - during and after stay. Thanks Maya¬®!!
Will be back!!
Response from Maya Novak - 12/07/2012
My dearest Butterflies,
Yes, do come back! We would love to spend some more time with you next time and our girls can play together.
Thank you so much for this wonderful review, for all the tiny details that you have mentioned. And the cleanness above all, I know how important it would be for me if I was to rent an apartment.
Looking forward to seeing you again!
great apartment in the city center
Main Square is beautiful apartment. Specious, clean and well equiped.
It has two large bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. Location is amazing, diretly at the main city square. Hosts were really kind and helpful, explained us all about city we needed. It was great two days stay.
We would definitely stay here next time.
Response from Maya Novak - 12/09/2012
Dear Maja, Thank you very much for your review, I appreciate it. I'm glad you liked it here and am looking forward to hosting you and your friends in Zagreb again!
Location : If there is a 'ground zero' in zagreb this is it!.
Cleanliness & Comfort: The apartment was as clean as a whistle,everything one could ask for has been provided & more.
The apartment is very well laid out, spacious, airy, squeaky clean bathrooms, equipped with a boatload of extra-linen & towels.
Most importantly, 'what you see is what you get', which in itself can be a rarity, as short-term rentals go. No excuse's, no if's, no but's, everything in the apartment is functional.
In a nutshell, if one is looking for 5 star facilities at 3 star prices,you got it. Look no further.
A for the hostess Maya. Everything about her exudes a certain warmth ,that one usually experience's on meeting a long lost sibling. Maya ,is a stickler for detail, as is evident as soon as you enter the apartment. If you are going to have just one friend in Zagreb, you better hope it be , Maya.
To most you may be just a tenant, to Maya you are a friend.
Response from Maya Novak - 11/29/2012
Reading your review is like reading a poem or a hymn to me and my apartment. Thank you so much, my dear poet! :-) Your praises are my most precious reward. I really do hope to host you again sometimes, you are always welcome, my friend!
Im Zentrum Zagrebs
Ein sauberes und modern eingerichtetes 2-Zimmer apartment (Schlafzimmer, K√ľche, Wohnzimmer, Duschbad, Wifi verf√ľgbar). Die K√ľche ist (wirklich!) komplett ausgestattet. Hervorragendes Preis/Leistungsverh√§ltnis. Das Schlafzimmer und die K√ľche gehen zu einem Innenhof (Milchglas) das Wohnzimmer zur Tkal?i?eva. Die Gastgeberin war √ľberaus freundlich und serviceorientiert. Jederzeit wieder!
Zentraler geht es nicht. Direkt in der Gasse zwischen dem zentralen Trg Bana Jela?i?a und dem Dolac. Direkt vor der Haust√ľre werden Blumen verkauft, zum Marktplatz sind es 30m und zur Tkal?i?eva ulica mit den vielen, netten Bars 50m. Lediglich Parkpl√§tze sind nicht wirklich vorhanden. Daher: Tipp - Ein wenig au√üerhalb parken und mir der Stra√üenbahn fahren oder ein Parkhaus nutzen (Achtung: unter Umst√§nden teurer als das apartment).
Morgenkaffee auf dem Dolac, Mittag/Abendessen im Stari Fijaker oder GostionicaPurger (jeweils 5 Min zu Fu√ü).
Response from Maya Novak - 11/26/2012
Ich bedanke mich recht herzlich fuer Ihre Bewertung und freue mich sehr, dass Sie sich bei uns so wohl gefuehlt haben. Wass das Parken angeht, haben Sie zum Teil recht. Wie in jedem Zentrum einer Grossstadt, ist es schwer einen Parkplatz zu finden. Da Sie diesmal mit dem Flugzeug gekommen sind, wu√üte ich nicht, dass Sie einen Parkplatz brauchen. Wenn ich das gewu√üt haette, haette ich Ihnen gerne ein Parkhaus in der Naehe vom Appartment empfohlen, wo man fuer nur 4 kuna (0,5‚ā¨)/Stunde parken kann. Oder, noch besser, es gibt auch einen Parkplatz, den man im Voraus 80 kuna (11‚ā¨) fuer 24 Stunden bezahlen kann.
Ich hoffe jedenfalls, Sie in unserem Appartment wieder begruessen zu koennen. Naechstes Mal trinken wir zusammen einen Morgenkaffe auf dem Dolac! :-)
Felt like home!
We stayed with our 4 year old daughter at the apartment this November, and we loved it! Since the first contact with Maya everything was great! She was very helpful,informative and kind during our correspondence, and after during our stay. Apartment was very clean, spacious, modern, and on the great location. Just a step outside and we were on the main square, pedestrian zone, with easy access to anything you want to see or do in Zagreb.
We really loved it, and already plan to go back. Once again, special thanks to Maya who was great and make us feel like its our new home.
Did I mentioned how clean it was!!!
Response from Maya Novak - 11/29/2012
since we're in almost the same business, your wonderful review is a great compliment for my work. You know best what a good short term rental should look like and what amenities it should have.
Looking forward to seeing you again, in Zagreb or PeljeŇ°ac, you'll always be our dear guests.
lovely clean spacious apartment inthe heart of zagreb
Maya and her husband met us late at night in the rain to take us to her apartment. When we arrived it was warm and inviting with every possible amenity you should want. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night. The apartment is as central as you can get and the square is alive with flower and veg markets during the day. All the trams for the city stop at the main square. We will definitely go and stay again. Thanks for all your help Maya.
Response from Maya Novak - 11/15/2012
Thank you so much for the great review, dear Sally! I enjoyed hosting you and would be more than happy to host you again, any time you're on your way through Zagreb. A special thanx for the lovely note that Charlotte has written for me! :-)
Lars and Ginny
A home away from home!
Look no further! This is a wonderful, well-located, and cozy apartment. As a person who sifts and sorts thru the internet sites to locate the perfect apartments for our stays, I found Main Square apartment to be the perfect fit for my wife and I. First and foremost, it has great reviews which I found to be accurate. And secondly, equally important to me, it has a contact person easily accessible before and during your visit. Maja was terrific from our first contact until the day we checked out. She treats this apartment, once her own home, as if it were her child. She is not only caring and helpful but goes out of her way to see you are pleased.
The apartment is within a one minute walk of everything...including the metro, grocery stores, wonderful bakeries, the daily open air vegetable/fish/cheese/meat market and at least a dozen fine restaurants. Because we like to cook with local foods, we were pleased to find the kitchen very adequate both in appliances and in pots/pans/chinaware.
I particularly enjoyed the huge glass door/windows in the living room which open to the street below. They bring wonderful light to the apartment and are super for watching the people in the square below. The flower market is directly below the windows too and this lends a marvelous ambiance. The bedroom is located in the rear portion of apartment, away from the pedestrian area outside the apartment. The real bed (not two pushed together) was very comfortable with colorful crisp sheets. Noise was not an issue anywhere within the apartment. The apartment is within a large mostly commercial building and is located on the second floor. There is a lift available although we did not find it necessary.
We really did enjoy Maja's apartment and our time in Zagreb. We traveled in Europe for several weeks in September and stayed in a variety of apartments. Maja's Main Square apartment was perfect in every way and we highly recommend it to everyone.
Response from Maya Novak - 10/31/2012
Dear Ginny and Lars,
Thank you so much for this wonderful review. My gosh, you have written an essay! A novel!! :-) It must have taken you some time, I really appreciate it very much.
I'm so happy that you mentioned all the tiny details like clothes pins, china ware and especially colorful crisp sheets. As I take care of the apartment myself, I consider all the comments very personally, as a praise for all my efforts and aims to provide a cosy home for my guests.
I enjoyed all the time I spent with you and will always remember you.
Best value and 100% satisfactory - deserves six stars
After flying from California to Zagreb, we spent our first night in Croatia at the Main Square apartment. What a wonderful beginning to great vacation. We were met by the taxi driver as we exited customs (arranged by Maya) and transported directly to the apartment. Maya met us at the apartment, assisted in moving our bags from taxi to apartment, and familiarized us with the apartment and Zagreb. She briefly explained a very helpful display on a desktop: restaurants, places of interest, important phone numbers (including hers) and other pertinent information. She left a phone card for us to use locally if needed. The apartment was clean, comfortable, quiet, and ideally located on the Main Square. We looked down on a pedestrian street through windows from ceiling to floor. When closed, not a sound entered from the street below. Thank you, Maya for a wonderful introduction to Croatia and the people of your country. Meeting you and staying at the Main Square apartment was 100% positive and pleasurable.
Response from Maya Novak - 10/15/2012
You made my day today!! :-)
Can't imagine how happy I am to read such a great review, it urges me to continue working and improving things in my apartment and the service even more.
Thank you once again for booking the Main Square Apartment. I really hope to see you again some time.
Superb location with an excellent host
This apartment is centrally located and all the tourist sites are nearby. Maya is a wonderful host and the apartment is very well equipped. She had provided very clear instructions to the apartment and was extremely thoughtful and written a note which was touching. This place is really a home, away from home.
Response from Maya Novak - 10/12/2012
Thank you for such a nice review. My greatest reward for the effort I put in this apartment is that you, who came from the other side of the world, really felt like like home here. I'm so happy to hear this. :-)
Excellent location and host
The apartment is extremely well-located right on Ban Jela?i? Square - one can't get any more central than this. The apartment is quite spacious, with separate living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and very well-appointed. There are helpful brochures, magazines, even a DVD about Zagreb/Croatia in the apartment. The best part of the apartment is the host, Maya. She is the most helpful host I have come across in all of my travels. She answered all of our questions prior to our arrival, made inquiries on our behalf (e.g., for car rentals), and provided tons of information that helped us plan our trip. She also arranged for airport pick-up and drop-off (and we weren't even staying with her when we were leaving at the end of our trip). She also checked in on us during our trip when we were traveling elsewhere in Croatia, and offered her help while we were traveling. She became like a friend rather than simply a host of an accommodation.
Response from Maya Novak - 09/18/2012
Now dear T., how on earth could I respond to such a wonderful review? It's great that you liked the apartment and the location, but you gave ME soooo many compliments! I'm blushing. :-)
It was really my pleasure to help you around, as I sincerely wanted you to experience Zagreb and Croatia right.
I'm sorry that the apartment was already booked on your way back to Zagreb, so I couldn't host you for that one night, but I surely hope we'll meet again. There are many wonderful places you haven't seen yet.
Take care, my friends!
Warmest regards from Zagreb
Great place to stay in Zagreb
If you are looking for a centrally located, well-equipped apartment in Zagreb, you can't go wrong with the Main Square apartment. The owner Maya Novak has thought of everything, and made this a home away from home. The apartment is right in the centre of town, within walking distance of all the major sights, restaurants, bars, the Dolac market with wonderful fresh fruit, vegetables and delicatessen goods, and a sweet flower market. Maya was full of great suggestions on what to do and where to eat in Zagreb and was very welcoming and helpful. We'd gladly stay again.
Response from Maya Novak - 08/25/2012
I appreciate your wonderful review very much. You were also perfect guests, I enjoyed every minute I spent with you. Hope your stay in Croatia was as nice as in Zagreb and that you'll be back again.
Thank you also for the lovely Hong Kong souvenire you brought me, my girls loved it.
Wishing you all the best!
A piece of city paradise
Amazing. Maya personally looks after each and every visitor, she makes sure they find the address, introduces them to the apartment with a very cute, personalised welcome ;) and points out the main local attractions.
The home is beautiful. Very modern and clean equipped with everything you'd ever need, from tea and coffee to laundry facilities, spare towels - you could literally move in and live there permanently.
The location is fantastic, central, just moments away from restaurants, bars and clubs, cathedrals, museums and heritage sites, and every morning just beyond the window is the friendly and colourful hustle and bustle of the local market under traditional red umbrellas, where you can get everything from fresh local flowers, fresh produce and fresh souviniers :)
What I liked best is that Maya leaves you with a taste of the local friendliness and hospitality right from the word go. I especially loved her glass-topped table, under which a guest will find any and all the information they'd need from the phone numbers and addresses of the best local restaurants to her personal Wi-Fi name and password.
Thank you Maya, we hope to see you again soon!!!
Response from Maya Novak - 08/25/2012
Thank you so much for the wonderful review, I was deeply touched reading it. I know I'm doing my best for my guests to feel comfortable, but now when I read about the real effect of my efforts, you almost made me cry :-)
I also want to thank you for the bottle of wonderful australian wine you left for us. Just like its name suggest (Boomerang), I hope you'll be back to Zagreb and Croatia. I'm really looking forward to hosting you again!
Beautiful apartment in the heart of Zagreb
My friends and I loved staying at Maya's apartment in Zagreb. It was right in the center of everything and every morning we woke up to a beautiful flower mart. Maya has truly thought of everything--she had restaurant recommendations, a mobile phone for us to use, and maps that marked souvenir shops and bars. We took her advice for place to eat lunch and received a free dessert there. She even got us a cab for nearly half of what other tourists pay. We felt very well cared for. Maya did everything she could to make our stay as easy and fun as possible.
Response from Maya Novak - 07/30/2012
Thank you so much, Anna! I enjoyed hosting you. You and your girlfriends were so nice and interesting that I wished for a moment I could be a part of your travelling crew :-)
Looking forward to seeing you again!
Location, location, location
If you are going to stay shorter term and when every minute counts this apartment is worth every penny - especially if you are coming with kids that might require quick acess to the aparment (naps:)). Maja is a gracious host that will make sure all of your questions are answered. She also provided a list of top destinations in terms of entrtainment, restaurants, shopping and groceries - most very close - and it is quite useful as you are surrounded with hundreds of establishements in the center, so having some guidence saves you time. The apartment itself is elegantly decorate and appears newly renovated. You will have all you need - very smooth stay - highly recommend
Response from Maya Novak - 07/23/2012
Thank you for such a nice review. I know traveling with kids is often not easy, so I'm especially happy for being able to provide you a kids/baby-friendly accomodation. Next time you come around I'll think of some great kids attractions in Zagreb. Looking forward to seeing you again, say hi to your lovely daughter with whom I share the name and the birthday! :-))
An absolutely adorable apartment in the center of Zagreb, furnished with a lot of charm and taste. Great welcoming, lovely landlady, lots of great tips on what to do and what to see in Zagreb. Perfectly clean, offering everything from a fully equipped modern kitchen, a spacious living room with a lot of daylight and a cozy bedroom. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Zagreb!
Response from Maya Novak - 07/23/2012
Thank you for the wonderful review, I appreciate it very much. I'm so glad that you liked the apartment, felt comfortable there and found my tips useful. The best part of the hosting job which I love so much are my happy and satisfied guests! You and your friends are always welcome! Looking forward to seeing you again.
A nice, central place that includes everything you need
This apartment is beautiful and clean, there is good space and it has everything you need. I reccomend staying here because it¬īs very central and it gives you a great base to explore the city as you like.

Personalized stay in perfect location!
Maya is an amazing host. The apartment is literally in the center of the center, but she is also makes the experience. She provided tourist information, a discount to a wonderful restaurant, and made sure that everything was taken care. A top notch experience.

I am so touched by your warm recommendation of my apartment and myself as a host. Thank you so much. It is a pleasure for me to meet people like you. This is the reason why I love running this apartment so much. I know we'll meet again. Looking forward to it! :-)
The Place to Stay in Zagreb
Maya met us at the train station and gave us a tour as we drove to the apartment in the pouring rain!She took the time to take us shopping so we could have food for the next day.The apartment is unique in shape and design adding to its character.We enjoyed watching the comings and goings of the main square and stepping out Saturday morning to be greeted by the sights and smells of the flower market!Despite all the activity around us, a very quiet and secure accommodation.You can tell that Maya loves what she does and she does it well! Thank you Maya! Terry, Helen and Kent

Thank you very much for your review, much appreciated. I will always remember how we waited in my car till the rain stops and were soaking wet after only 10 seconds of running :-)
Going shopping with you also was a pleasure to me, I was happy to show you a really good grocery shop with the best supply.
I wish we could have spent more time together, and hope we'll do it next time you come to Croatia. You'll always be welcome at Main Square Apartment!

Thank you for your nice words. I'm glad you liked the Main Square Apartment, and I enjoyed recommending you things to see and places to visit. I'm especially happy to be able to provide you the ticket for the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra and that you enjoyed the concert.
Once again, special thanx for the vegemite, I just love it in my sandwiches and seem to be hooked to it now. When I run out of it, hope some kind Australian guest will bring me another supply :-))
Hope to see you again!
Great apartment, amazing location!
My friends and I (two couples) stayed in the apartment for a few nights. There is one bedroom and a comfortable sofa bed in the living room. The location is amazing. You walk out the door straight into the weekend market and only a few steps from all of the bars and restaurants. If you want to be in the very heart if the city, this is it.
The apartment had very good amenities and was very clean. Maya was so kind and helpful and was generous in offering information or any assistance to
make our stay the best possible.
We had a great stay in Zagreb and I would highly recommend the apartment to anyone wanting to stay in the heart of the city.
Perfect location, cleanliness and service
We have been to Zagreb before, and have stayed in apartments for a short term rent. However, after we have discovered the Main Square apartment, we're not likely to change our choice any more. The location is just perfect, right on the main Zagreb square. Whether you are in Zagreb as a tourist or for business purposes, whatever you do, and wherever you go - everything is right there, or just around the corner. Despite of the central position, the place is really quiet, both during the day and at night. The apartment is warm and cosy and we really felt like at home. It is very clean and fully equipped. We didn't miss a single thing inthere, be it a cheese slicer or champagne glasses, the hosts have thought about everything. There was even a welcome drink in the fridge left for us, as well as fresh fruit. Our hosts were very kind and helpful, provided us with all sorts of useful information we needed. We will definitelly book the Main Square apartment next time we're in Zagreb, and will always recommend it to everyone who is travelling there.

Best Location in Zagreb!
I had an absolutely wonderful experience at Maya's apartment. It's in the best location in Zagreb, just a few meters away (literally) from shopping, restaurants, and the historic part of the city. The apartment was rather modern, extremely clean, and very quiet at night despite its central location. Maya is a very sweet person and answered my emails promptly during/after the booking process. She even had fresh fruit from the market waiting in the kitchen for me. My only regret was that we didn't have more time to chat. I would highly recommend this apartment for your stay in Zagreb.
