great location for plitvicka jezera
the main problem was that the website said that i can pay by credit card but when i got there, the owner said that they do not take any credit cares and i should pay by cash or bank transfer. luckily i had enough cash,.. but if i had known in advance i could have planned better.

Villa Cancar for Plitvice Park
The room was very nice. A/C worked very well, which was good since it was unseasonably hot. Close to Plitvice Park. The breakfast was very good. The only bad thing was that from about 5 pm on the wifi was virtually unuseable. I think it lacked the capacity for todays travelers. We had three in the room and all had wifi needs.

Great little gem❤️
Location was perfect! Close to two grocery stores, On the main road to the park and REALLY close to Gate 1 of Plitvice Lakes National Park. Great price! Parking. Antonella checked us into a HUGE ground floor apartment. Marina served a wonderful hearty breakfast. Loved the zucchini egg dish. The family that owns this property has done a great job making their guests feel at home. My husband injured his shoulder and was in a great deal of pain during our stay. The owners allowed him to stay in our apartment after check out time so he could rest while I walked trail E :) Wifi was wonderful! My husband was able to watch live American football on his iPad without interruption. There was some confusion at checkout. My husband expected to pay cash, but was told the payment had been made by credit card on We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

Great Hosts
The owners were wonderful. They have a small restaurant where we had the best meal on our trip. It was their peca dinner ( under the bell) We were able to see the whole process on how it was prepared. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The location was only a few miles from the Plivitce Park.
