Property description

Welcome to your second home in our quiet neighborhood. You can walk 15 minutes from here to the Skopje main square with all its monuments, then take the Stone Bridge to the Old Bazaar and enjoy all the city has to offer. Or, just hike from the house up Mount Vodno to the Millennium Cross and the 12th Century Saint Panteleymon monastery church, the village and the woods that surround it..

We are making available half of our modest family home and all it has to offer. The ground floor of our house has 2 bedrooms, and a common room with a full kitchen and dining table where guests can chat over coffee or enjoy dinner. You can also relax outside on the hammock or at one of the two garden tables. Large lockers are provided for your valuable belongings. One room has 4 single beds, and the smaller rooms have foldout sofas for up to two people, The bathroom has a bathtub with a shower and a washing machine available for your use for a small fee to cover the cost. Guests of the two rooms will share this bathroom. Coffee and tea are always available for you in the kitchen, and we can occasionally make you a special Turkish coffee in the Macedonian style. Our garden has many fruit bearing trees, which you can enjoy all summer. We use no pesticides...

At you disposal is WIFI, garden, local telephone... Mobile phone SIM card provided - you just buy credit at the local store. The ground floor is rather cool in the summer which makes it quite the retreat.

Please note that the price quoted here is a price per room for two people, and there is a 8 euro surcharge for each additional person. You can rent only one room for two or all three rooms for four or more people. So please inquire about the availability and all options.

My team and I started offering rooms to travelers in my house to help support our non-profit efforts, sustainable living and education projects around the country. It is our modest beginning effort and we are looking forward to your support and feedback to be able to improve the facilities and the services we can offer.
