“It's not just the place, it's the hostess”
The best thing about this apartment--beyond it's location--is that when you rent it, you meet Maya. Maya is the quintessential host. She's thought of everything to make your experience in Zagreb memorable and your stay at her apartment comfortable. From a mobile phone to use locally to lists of great restaurants within walking distance, she's compiled a notebook of information that anticipates your every need. Before we arrived, she also got to know us, and tailored other details to meet our particular interests. She even helped us arrange a place to stay on the Peljesac Penninsula in the off season and to meet an oyster farmer there. The location is perfect for exploring Zagreb. It's on the back side of Ban Jalacic Square, directly across from the Dolac Market and the foot of the steps that separate the upper and lower towns. (The sunny front room looks out on both.) When you walk out the front door, you are in the middle of a colorful flower market section of Dolac, and you feel like a local. We were four adults; the couple (in their 70s) took the bedroom, the others slept on two couches that converted to comfortable beds in the living room. If you like to sleep in, be sure to take the back bedroom since the front room gets noisy (and light) early in the morning due to its proximity to Dolac. I think the place would be great for a family with kids. The kitchen is well equipped, but if you have more than two people, you'll likely want to eat in the sunny front room. The building has an elevator, which is convenient; the apartment is perfect for older travelers who may have some mobility issues. I can't say enough about our wonderful experience in Zagreb, mostly thanks to the amazing Maya. Meeting her will be a highlight of your trip, if not your life.
Response from the owner I'm absolutely speechless after reading your review, dear Suzanne. This is probably one of the nicest reviews that I have ever received. Thank you so much, you made not only my day, but my month or year too. :-) You know the feeling is mutual, I enjoyed hosting you too and will never forget you! Please do come again sometimes! xoxo
“Amazing stay in Zagreb”
Not only the place looked amazing but Maya is also a fantastic host. We were there for New years and loved it, the appartement is great, the location perfect and I would recommend it to anyone traveling in Zagreb.
“Best place to stay in Zagreb”
I've spent considerable time in Zagreb before and know the city well, so when I returned for a month, I chose this apartment for the location. Honestly, the location could not be any more ideal. It's right on the main square, with almost everything you could possibly want within a few minutes' walk. If you do have to visit other parts of the city, you can walk to the trams in about 60 seconds. The apartment itself is fantastic. It's quite spacious and very well furnished. I loved the living room, with its view of Dolac (the greenmarket) and bustling Tkalciceva street. The room is bright and airy too. The kitchen is very well equipped. And the bedroom is located in the rear of the apartment, where it's very cozy and quiet. There's tons of storage space as well. And finally, there's Maya, who is a perfect hostess. She made sure everything was perfect--even stocking the fridge because I was arriving late the night before a holiday. She is gracious and charming, and if you need tips on anything, she is more than happy to help. Her communication both before and during my stay was outstanding. For future visits, I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else but this apartment. Highly recommended.
Response from the owner Dear Phyllis, Thank you so much for your great review. The feeling is absolutely mutual, I enjoyed hosting you too, and thank you for sharing your time with me. I'm glad that you're such an admirer of Zagreb and Croatia, I'll always be happy to host you again!
“Definite 5 stars!”
We stayed in Mayas apartment as a couple in September 2013 and have no hesitation at all recommending it. The location cannot be bettered, right next to the farmers and flower market and the main street of restaurants, cafes and bars (Tkalciceva). Many of the key sights of Zagreb are within a short walking distance, yet the flat is quiet, peaceful and secure. This is a lovely town apartment, in a quite glamorous building (internally) with marble floors and beautiful ceiling lights in the entrance hall. The apartment itself has plenty of space and is comfortable, bright and modern inside. It is very well equipped and Maya has thought of everything for her guests, even providing a local mobile phone to use while you are there! I enjoyed opening the blinds in the morning and watching the stall holders and cafes set up below from the large windows in the living room. As other people have said, Maya is a joy to deal with. Professional and warm, you feel that she genuinely loves her work and cares about her guests. All emails were answered promptly before we arrived and she has negotiated a very good deal on taxi fares to pick you up from the airport to the apartment. Despite me mixing up arrival times, Maya was there to meet and welcome us and she provided great local information on anything we asked, as well as suggestions and recommendations. We were able to contact her easily during our stay and felt that we were in a very safe pair of hands. Do not hesitate to book this apartment if travelling to Zagreb (Maya also has a lovely looking cottage on the Peljesac Peninsula which would make a fantastic two centre holiday). We will definitely stay again when we return. Thanks for helping make our stay so easy and enjoyable Maya.
Response from the owner Dear J. and I., I enjoyed hosting you and hope to see you back soon. I appreciate your wonderful review very much, glad that you liked it in Zagreb and felt comfortable in my apartment!
“Great location and excellent service!”
The apartment is centrally located with easy walking and or transit to almost anywhere you'd like to go. The apartment is cozy, comfortable and quiet given the central location. We were most impressed with Maya and her attentiveness and help. Not only was the booking easy but she sorted taxis and offered her help with a lost luggage situation. She definitely went above and beyond.
Response from the owner Dear Kim, It was a pleasure hosting you and your family in the Main Square Apartment. I am glad I could be of help to you and will always do my best to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Thank you so much for your wonderful review!
“Perfect location, modern, clean apartment”
I stayed in Maya's apartment with family of four in mid-August 2013. I had lived in Zagreb before moving to the us, so I knew that you couldn't beat this location, no chance, this is in the middle of the action, you step out and you are right on the main square, everybody's favorite meeting place in the evening. My concerns coming in were that the apartment could be too small for the family of four, and that it could be noisy. None of this was true. While not huge, the apartment was large enough, and we couldn't hear any noise from the square. Ac worked very well and kept the place cool. It was extremely helpful as it was hot outside. Now the host, Maya is simply wonderful. Very responsive, and extremely well informed about things that interest travelers: the best places for parking, good places to eat out, where's good ice cream, etc. She speaks fluent English (I heard that she speaks other languages too), and communication with her is totally pleasant. Having heard that we are originally from Bosnia, she even had a bottle of slivovitz (plum brandy) in the fridge for us. What else could I ever expect from a host! Would we come back? You bet! Next time we'll definitely stay longer than just two nights.
Response from the owner Dear Miroslav, It was absolutely a pleasure hosting you and your family in our apartment. We're grateful for the time you shared with us in order go get to know each others a bit better. Thank you also for your wonderful feedback, I'm glad you liked it here and will always do my best to make your stay memorable. Looking forward to seeing you again!
“Perfect place to stay!”
We visited Zagreb on our honeymoon, and could not have asked for better accommodations than the Main Square apartment! It's located in the heart of the city, and allowed us to easily walk to everywhere we wanted to see. The apartment itself is beautiful and clean and has everything you might need for a comfortable stay. Maya was also a wonderful hostess - she had a map of the city for us and pointed out some of her favorite things to do. We also were able to go to a few of the restaurants she suggested, and they were delicious! We had a wonderful time in the Main Square apartment, and definitely plan on staying there again when we visit Zagreb!
Response from the owner Dear Kevin and Erin, I'm so glad that you have chosen the Main Square Apartment to be a part of your honey moon tour, and that you liked it here so much.Wishing you all the best and hoping to host you again sometimes.
Great service, with many personal touches that were really appreciated - particularly spending a couple of hours with Maya and her family on our last day. Very clean, tidy and well stocked apartment right on the Main Square, in the centre of all the hustle and bustle. Loved it! Close to the farmers market (fresh produce, honey, cheeses etc), great bakeries, excellent coffee etc. Maya had left recommendations on restaurants and bars worth visiting and none of those we went to, disappointed. No complaints what so ever.
Response from the owner Dear Moana, thank you so much for your great review and thank you for sharing your time with us. We enjoyed our relaxing lazy Friday afternoon with you guys, and really hope we'll see you again soon. We'll always remember you. Kia Ora!
“Perfection - great location and facilities”
We stayed here in late June, actually the two days before Croatia joined the EU. Before we arrived, I was a little worried that the apartment might be too small for myself and my husband and my two boys (8 & 3). I shouldn't have worried. The apartment is very roomy and so well set out that even the smaller spaces work perfectly. There is also a lot of storage so it is nice to be able to unpack your suitcase for a few days. The boys slept on 2 sofa beds in the lounge room and we slept on easily the most comfortable bed that we had in our whole six weeks in Europe! The whole place is immaculate and has every amenity that you could ever think of - including a local phone and a mobile to use while you are there! The shower head is also wonderful, and again, the best one we had whilst we were away!! I was also worried before we arrived about possible noise from the Square below, but once again it was not a problem. The EU celebration practices were going on both nights we there were very loud orchestras and singers which we went down and watched. However, when we we were back at the apartment we didn't notice it at all. As the the location, you can't get better. It is magical walking downstairs to the markets and flower stalls just outside the door. The location is perfect for everything. The highlight, however, is the host Maya, who does everything she can for you to make your stay perfect. The EU celebrations were causing difficulties with our car hire company and where to get the car from as all the streets were closed. So she liaised with them on my behalf and organised something and then came and picked us up and walked with us to the new rendezvous spot. This was just one example of her hospitality. She also posted an item to us that we left behind. I can't recommend this apartment highly enough and we hope to be back one day - thank you Maya.
Response from the owner Dear Shayla, "HVALA" for your really wonderful review!! It must have taken you quite some time to write it because it is so detailed and descriptive, I think nobody has ever mentioned the shower head in their reveiws. :-) Thank you sooo much. I appreciate it a lot! Looking forward to hosting you again, either in Zagreb or in our Sunny Cottage on the Peljesac peninsula!
“central and comfortable”
we enjoyed staying here. Everything you need is in the apartment. The aC was very appreciated. Maya goes the extra yard to make you stay comfortable. We recommend this apartment.
Response from the owner Dear Lucie, Thanx so much for your nice review. I always try to do my best to make my guests feel comfortable, so I liked your comment about "the extra yard". Hopefully you'll decide to come for more of Croatia and I am especially looking forward to hosting you again any time!
