You already have read much, maybe this link provides some useful (extra) info for you:
Important: when do you travel?
Liking scenery, but also liking to be active? (ascending in cablecar or hiking e.g.)
Is beach (very) important?
What do you mean by 'one night stands'? (in some European countries it primarily has a se..al connotation)
Personally for me? Actually not interesting for you IMO, but ok: Soca valley with Bovec, Skocjan caves, Plitvice Lakes, Dubrovnik
NB. second try to pass the censorship probably stopped by the word before 'connotation'.

2I think by one night stand the op just means they want to stay longer than just a single night in the places they visit, basically not a rushed trip.
Some personal suggestions:
Slovenia - Use Ljubljana as your base and do day trips out from there to places like Bled. The people that prefer the city/culture can stay in Ljubljana, while the nature people can head out to more nature based locations. This should be pretty easy as the day trippers can use the rental car, and public transport is fine for getting around the city. I would then leave the rental car in Slovenia or drop it off in Sarajevo if that was possible.
After Slovenia I would head to Bosnia (rather than North Croatia) for a couple of days in Sarajevo (very interesting city). Then take the train to Mostar (one of the nicest journeys in Europe, lots of beautiful landscapes along the way for the nature people). Stay in Mostar just for 1 night. I know you said you don't want 1 night in places but for this place 1 night is enough.
Then from Mostar head down to Montenegro. Make sure you visit Kotor.
Depending how long you want to spend in Montenegro you could finish there or head north to Dubrovnik (I imagine this makes more sense anyway in terms of flying out).

3Thanks so much for your suggestions (sorry for late reply, internet knocked out in Australian floods). It's really helpful hearing what others would do. Yes, by one night stand I meant just one night somewhere. Our trip is still looking a little rushed, but we've worked out one that seems to suit everyone. Thanks again!
