“Absolutely phenomenal place. I felt completely at home. Hosts were amazing, they catered to every single need we had. Location is great. It is literally a walking distance from the Stoykite ski lift, even though it is still better to have a couple minute’s drive not to carry the skis around. The apartment was very clean, ordered to such an extend that even a pedantic person like me was impressed. We will definitely return. Everything was absolutely perfect. ”

“Incredible place to stay! Amazing experience at Stoikite House Apartments! 10 /10 rating for this incredibly comfortable and modern accommodation!”

“Stoikite House Apartments is the perfect choice for a relaxing, stress free holiday. The apartment we stayed in was beautifully furnished, cozy, super clean and we felt at home the moment we arrived there. The view from the balcony was stunning. Thanks to the perfect location it’s easy to explore all the landmarks around during the day.”

“We stayed here (my wife and I with our three children). The location: If you plan to visit different attractions all over the Rhodopi Mountains then this place is located more or less in the middle of everything (an hour drive from the ‘Bridges of Wonder’,  Bachkovo on the west , same distance from Yagodina and Trigrad caves on the east and very close to Pamprovo, Shiroka Laka,etc…). The house is located close to the outskirts of the village so you can also just walk out for wonderful hikes. There is a very nice view from the apartment both to the village and to the mountain side. In Stoykite there are three restaurants (so I have heard, we have visited two that were good), a grocery store and an ATM (not many places in these areas receive credit cards), and in nearby Shiroka Laka (10 min drive) there are additional shops and restaurants. The apartment: It has everything you need for a homey family stay. The living room is large the overall design is warm and cosy, the kitchen is well equipped. It has two bathrooms. We enjoyed the fireplace very much (more for the atmosphere then for the heat) 🙂 Breakfast: You get some groceries (yogurt, eggs, fruits, vegetables, milk serials/granola, bread, butter) to prepare it  yourself. We sent a Whatsapp message every morning with products we needed refilled for the next day and nothing was missing. The hosts: The owners that happened to be there when we visited (Timothy and Colleen) and the hostess (Yoana) were lovely and kind. They made sure we had everything we needed and were helpful with information on sites, weather, restaurants, events etc. For the non-Bulgarian speakers – Yoana speaks very good English and Russian.”

“Благодарим ви за гостоприемството. Всичко беше чудесно. Изключително място, създадено с вкус за домашен уют и перфекционизъм за чистота. Със сигурност ще ви посетим отново. (Thank you for your hospitality. Everything was wonderful. An exceptional place created with taste for homey coziness and perfectionism for cleanliness. We will definitely visit you again.)

“Страхотно! Изключително удобен, модерно и функционално обзаведен апартамент. Печката на дърва създава особен уют. Чистотата е на ниво. Домакините са много любезни и отзивчиви, максимално се стараят да отговорят на изискванията и да създадат комфорт на гостите си. Локацията е идеална, до лифта се стига за 5 мин пеша. Ще посетим отново. (“Great! Extremely comfortable, modern and functionally furnished apartment. The wood stove creates a special coziness. The cleanliness is at a high level. The lift is 5 minute’s walk away. We will visit again.)

“The House is so well situated. Being able to ski back into your accommodation is pretty hard to beat! The short walk up to the lift the following morning eliminates your need for transport. With several apartments available, group trips with friends or family are easily planned. The delightful cafe, just a stone’s throw from the House, is extremely welcoming and always has an Irish coffee ready and waiting! Already looking forward to the 2015/16 season. A Wonderful Holiday.”

“I have stayed at Stoikite House a number of times, with my family, and have always been very impressed with the accommodation. The flats are comfortable, modern and very well equipped, with good views across the village. The location is excellent, only a short walk to the ski lift, which then takes you into the main resort of Pamporovo. I will definitely be back!”

“Really enjoyed my stay at Stoikite House. The village itself is quiet and peaceful, and I found the location to be an ideal base for my skiing holiday. The flats are a good size, with everything I needed, and only a five minute walk to the ski lift. I have already booked for 2016!”

“We had a great 5 day stay at the house during the ski season. The host was very welcoming and helpful throughout the process – booking, arriving and during our stay. The apartment itself is located 10 minutes away from the Stoykite lift which is great if you’re skiing. The living area is very sunny during the day and warm and cosy in the evenings especially when you light up the fireplace. The house is very well equipped with kitchen appliances and the furniture is very nice and comfortable. Even if you’re not skiing the area around Stoykite is very beautiful with great places to see and experience the local culture and cuisine. We’re really hoping to go back some day.”

“Truly amazing place!! I went there with a group of friends for the weekend and we were left literally speechless from the very moment we walked through the door. A couple of weeks in advance I reveived a call from Timothy and he told me that he aims to create a cozy, homely atmosphere and told me that the fireplace would be already lit when we arrive and that the fridge would be packed with everyday essentials like milk, eggs, ham, vegetables etc. And that’s how it really was. That was a really nice gesture and wasn’t left unnoticed!! The little village where the apartment is located is the perfect definition of the word picturesque. Only thing we could hear from the balcony were the songs of the birds coming from the forest which is no more than 50 meters away. The view from the balcony is astonishing. The facilities in the flat – absolutely spot on. It has everything you need! And all of it is BRAND new. It felt like we were the first guests ever. The flat was also packed with all sorts of crockery, cutlery and all that stuff. I really really recommend this place!! You won’t regret it. Will definitely go back there again in the near future! The one and only downside was that there was no internet connection. However, in a place like this one, you really do not need the internet. It’s just so beautiful and peaceful. Total relaxation! (Ed note: We now have high speed internet-perfect for streaming films on the big screen TV.)

“10 out of 10! Excellent experience! We were welcomed by Daniela and she was very polite, responded to all our requirements and was waiting for us till late evening when we arrived. We felt as if we stayed at our own home.  Amazing view from the balcony!”

“A home away from home. Wonderful experience, from the host and the brand new, clean, spacious apartment. A nice terrace with good views. You immediately feel at home and wish it was so. Very quiet environment close to nice areas to visit. 10/10!”

“Having such a fantastic and relaxing stay here at Stoikite House Holiday Apartments. The apartment is well equipped and situated in a stunning and peaceful location. The apartment has been finished to a high standard and the beds are so comfortable. Perfect! The only negative was having to come home.”

“Quiet place with an excellent location in the mountains overlooking the Mount Snow. Self-catering with well-equipped kitchen. Fireplace that contributes to a more pleasant and cozy atmosphere. 10 out of 10.”

“Home comfort 🙂  The location of the apartment was fabulous. We were welcomed with a smile. The apartment smelled clean, was  spacious and equipped with everything you could think of. The quality of everything left us without words.  We could not fault it.  We were charmed by the quietness and comfort of this enchanting place. I’d give it an 11 out of 10!  We were very pleased and will definitely stay again at Stoikite House Apartments!”

“The apartment is furnished very nicely, with huge windows and comfortable beds. It is also quite spacious with a very nice kitchen. We were very happy and had a great stay. Our hosts were very helpful and they were easy to get in touch and gave us suggestions for restaurants and sights. Stoikite village is very quiet and relaxing. “

“Tim’s appartment is amazing – we enjoyed the view from the terrace, the fresh mountain air and the tranquility of the place. Thanks Daniela for taking care of stocking up the fridge before our arrival. We felt totally at home from the first minutes. Wish we could stay longer! Definetely a place to return to.”

“We had such a lovely stay at Timothy’s apartment. The surrounding area is stunning, the apartment was more than great. A cosy fire, well equipped kitchen etc and Daniela who welcomed us was so friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended a stay. “

“Another thoroughly enjoyable week’s skiing in Pamporovo! Our stay at Stoykite House was, as in past years, perfect. We arrived to a warm welcome from Daniela, and the cosy log burner was lit for our arrival. The welcome pack provided, of various supplies/fresh fruit, was most helpful. Stoykite House is conveniently situated, being just a short walk to the ski lift, which links to the main resort of Pamporovo. Stoykite village is quiet and peaceful. Our flat was the perfect place to relax in after a day on the slopes. It is very well equipped, modern and bright, with lovely views of the village and surrounding area. We’ll be back!”

“Impressive Cave in The Rhodopes Mountains” Reviewed 30 June 2012 Very interesting long cave with two exits. Deep in the Rhodopes Mountains amongst beautiful nature, not far from a quiet village with a lot of guest houses with friendly hosts and very good local cuisine.
