Location away from the city was a huge advantage for me. Peace and quiet and much cooler than in the city (I was in a very hot period). Beautiful view of the Ohrid lake. Family atmosphere, very good contact with the owner. The apartment is very large and comfortable. The food served by Anita is excellent, also for vegetarians.
Beautifully located B&B, friendly and hard-working hosts, delicious cooking, clean rooms, peaceful village. Very nice veranda, where host Anita serves breakfast, diner (on request) etc., with a wonderful view. Large lawn and parking space. Anita's cooking is really quite something; it's all seasonal, tasty and home made and she provides a great variety of things to enjoy. Much better than some of the restaurants in the area, certainly more choice within one meal! Owners organise hikes and donkey rides as well. The donkeys bray a few times in the morning, which adds to the village feel of the place. In the evening one can hear the crickets chirping loudly. We had a very nice, spacious room, good beds and nice sheets, good pillow. Good curtains. Our very own balcony with view onto Lake Ohrid! Room, balcony and bathroom were very clean. We had air conditioner which we only needed on the day of arrival for a few minutes. It works well. It's a longish ride up a narrow windy lane to get to Elshani, but if you're a good driver and your car is not excessively wide you should be able to get to this wonderful spot without any problems.
The water in the shower basin filled up quickly and took long to drain. However, we tried to take this into account and used the water only short times in one go. Bathroom was simple but clean and we needed no more.
The FOOD is AMAZING! Risto and Anita are wonderful hosts and make you feel right at home. Everything is hand made when it comes to the food so it is a bit hard not to over eat! The garden is perfect for the children, they are safe and have so much fun. We also enjoyed meeting other guests, the kids having a donkey ride through the village and of course the sunsets over Lake Ohrid every night.
There was only one little garbage can in the bathroom and it would have been good to have more garbage cans in the rooms since we are a big family, we generate a bit of garbage. Nothing else to change!
All was perfect!
This is a truly welcoming guesthouse. Very nice, friendly and service minded hosts that made our stay a dream.
