About Susan Kibler

I 'discovered' the amazing country of Slovenia in 2001. Since then, my husband, son and family and friends have enjoyed every moment of our Slovenian vacations. There is so much to do that even after more than 15 years, we still have a list of things we wish to do.

Susan Kibler purchased this cottage in 2011

Why Susan Kibler chose Bohinjska Bela

We know immediately we wanted to find a property in this amazing country. Bled has always been our favorite location, yet we wanted to have access by good roads to explore the rest of the country. We had a demanding list. We wanted to be very close to Bled, but have privacy and charm. We wanted great views. The mountains in Slovenia have always enchanted us. We wanted a property with a lot of character, that had all the most modern conveniences so that we could live there comfortably.

We instantly fell in love with this home and location. The house itself is over 100 years old. The original owner lived there his entire life. He was a big collector. We have incorporated many or the antiques and items which were left in the house into our interior design. We wanted the house to feel historic, but with a modern edge.

When we purchased it we had to install all systems: water, heating, gas, etc. We used all the most modern equipment. We tried to think of the little things like providing additional space below the sinks for convenience. We worked with a great interior designer and construction firm to completely remake the home.

What makes this cottage unique

We hope you enjoy the views from our deck, the grill and old fashioned sitting area under the grape vines and the other special spaces this historic cottage offers as much as we do!

Guestbook comments from the owner

  • 5 of 5

We and another couple had a wonderful 5 night stay at Bela Luna, a very short distance from the bustle of Lake Bled in a lovely rural setting. And well-located for touring in the area.

The classic cottage has been updated and is very bright, well-decorated, and well-equipped. We came prepared with recipes and ate dinners at the cottage and lunched out while we toured the area. Also had a very satisfactory dinner at the popular local restaurant in walking distance, arriving just before a big downpour!...

As noted in other reviews, the stairs to the second floor are very steep, but our friends (70+) managed OK. The side yard is fenced and with a nice deck, so should be secure for kids, even with the road in front. Traffic was not an issue during our visit.

We thoroughly enjoyed Bela Luna and recommend it to those looking for a convenient place away from busy tourist locations.

Absolutely wonderful in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day stay at this lovely home away from home. Beautiful, clean, well appointed, relaxing, with everything we could possibly need. Thorough and easy communication with Susan prior to and throughout our visit as needed. Comfortable setting inside and out. Gorgeous surroundings and easy access to Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj, which we highly recommend. We would love to return. Thank you so much Susan!

Lovely house perfect for a family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent 3 nights at this lovely house. We are 2 adults and 3 young children (ages 2, 7 and 9) and we travel often. This property is exceptional and we only wished we could have stayed longer. In fact, my children said they want to live here! As soon as we walked in the door, it felt comfortable and cozy, plenty of natural light, clean, and well-maintained. The older kids immediately ran out to play in the large open space behind the house. Inside, the kitchen is small but well-equipped and we cooked dinner on two nights. We used the washing machine and that worked well. The bathrooms appear recently renovated and they felt very clean. Upstairs, my children especially liked sitting to draw at the small desk.

For guests with children I would just caution on 2 things about the house. First, the stairs are very steep and could be difficult or dangerous for a small child. My 2 year-old managed but I was nervous. Second, the space between the front door and the street is small and I was surprised how fast the cars and buses drove down the road. There is not a lot of traffic, but the vehicles that did come are fast. So it is very important to supervise children playing outside. Thankfully though, the side garden is spacious and fenced-in, and the space in the back is enormous, so there is plenty of room to safely play.

Susan, the owner, was always responsive and helpful. She provided us with a long list of recommendations for activities, restaurants, shops, etc. which was useful. The whole rental process was easy and clear.

From the house, Lake Bled is about 5-10 minutes away by car. We drove there and hiked up for views and then walked around the lake. It's beautiful. There is one restaurant just a few minutes walking from the house, but you probably need to drive for a grocery store. Ljubljana is also nearby and that's a delightful city. There is a lot to do in the area within a 30-60 minute drive, but since we were there in early April some things were closed. For us though, it was pleasant just to sit in the garden with a glass of wine for the adults and ice-cream for the kids, enjoying the sunshine, open space, and mountain views.

I'd highly recommend this place!

Great house, beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely, comfortable house in such a pretty setting. We enjoyed being 'at home' and being able to cook our own meals in the well equipped kitchen, or on the BBQ. Eating on the south facing terrace is pleasant but the view to the north is stunning. A great location close to Bled and Lake Bohinj. Highly recommended.

Beautiful home in beautiful surroundings

  • 4 of 5

Lovely, comfortable home, in beautiful

Surroundings. Well equipped for daily living. Pleasant walking in the area, great value pub food near by. Good wifi, great aspect and very well appointed.

Only downside for us( group of friends) was both bathrooms are downstairs, which was a bit awkward, but manageable.

Lots of places of interest within driving distance.

Would recommend.

Charming and close to the action.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated in a small village just outside of Bled. Super convenient if you have a rental car. The unit itself is well maintained and charming. You get the small village feel while being very close to all the amenities of Bled. Plenty of room for our family of four.
