4 bedroom villa with private pool in Dalmatia, Croatia
August 2019

An excellent holiday. Miho, the owner/our host, was best, very informative and generous throughout. The villa is the most well equipped we’ve stayed in and is situated in a very quiet, beautiful location. Ideally situated to explore the local villages and Dubrovnik’s only a short distance on the ferry or even hire a small boat (discounted for miho’s guests). If you’re going to holiday in this area stay in this villa, excellent value. Many thanks Miho, great time.

6 bedroom villa rental in Dalmatia, Croatia, with private pool
August 2019

Fantastic property with all the facilities to keep all 9 of us ranging in age from 4 to 50 entertained for a weeks stay. The pool is gorgeous, the pool table was used regularly for tournaments, skittles, bowls, mini Golf, football, the gym, badminton and water polo... a week wasn’t enough to get it all in!!!. Beautiful choice of areas to sit and relax and the bbq and dining area above the outbuildings is fantastic to sit and watch the sun go down behind the mountains. We have several amazing pictures of sunsets. We loved being very rural and quiet but within 15-30 mins you can reach one of the local supermarkets and again one of the beautiful local beaches. Would recommend Brela or Makarska especially if you have children who want play areas, inflatables in the sea or jet skis and pedalos. The welcome and tour of the facilities was fab and Sonja and her father were most helpful and kind. A perfect big group family holiday home. Highly recommend and we really didn’t want to go home. Beautiful part of Croatia and Split airport is the quietest, cleanest and most relaxed airport to use.

2 bedroom Croatian holiday villa rental with private pool
August 2019

Genialer Ort um abzuschalten. Alles sehr sauber und gepflegt. Die zwei getrennten HA¤user sind mit grA¶AYeren Kindern toll. Sehr gepflegte Anlage und toller Pool. Wer Ruhe abseits der Touristenorten sucht ist doch perfekt aufgehoben. Great place to switch off. Everything very clean and well-kept. The two separate houses are great with older children. Very well-kept area and great pool. If you are looking for peace away from the tourist places is perfectly stored.

0 bedroom Croatian villa to rent
June 2019

I have stayed in studios before that compromise in certain areas, this studio is purpose built and perfectly formed. The perfect amount of space and all the utensils etc you need for your stay in a self catering property. Also plenty of towels, hairdryer etc. We hired a car and although there is a parking space just down the road, getting in and out using the one way road was sometimes daunting - to be fair this would have been a lot easier if our hire car company hadn’t provided us with a juggernaut of a car that we did not ask for! You do not need necessarily need a car, there are several nice beaches in walking distance as well as a couple of restaurants. We spent a lot more time in the property than we had planned as it is just so lovely and peaceful. The garden area is large with lots of olive and fig trees and sitting listening to the birds and the sea was wonderful. It also provides privacy from the pathway below. We spent most days visiting the nearby beaches on foot and wondering back to the studio when we got too hot or just fancied being in the wonderful space. We had bbqs most nights and the facilities were spot on. Silvio met us on check in and was really helpful and kind, easy to get hold of for check out and if we had needed anything throughout our stay, but we didn’t as everything was catered for. I would definitely recommend staying here and would love to return for another holiday if I have the chance. Oh, Dubrovnik is a short distance away, we took the local boat taxi that picks up/drops off just down from the studio as recommended by Silvio and was the perfect way to get in and out of the city. But dragging ourselves away from Plat was hard as it is just so lovely. 10/10

7 bedroom villa with private pool in Dalmatia, Croatia
July 2018

Our stay was absolutely fantastic. we didn’t venture out of the villa as we had everything there that we needed. I recommend you have a car to go out to the supermarket as it is quite hilly and a good walk away. The villa was so clean, modern, and very upmarket I can’t fault it in the slightest in fact we didn’t want to come home it was that nice. We went as a family ageing from 5 right through to 72 and we all enjoyed ourselves.

4 bedroom villa rental in Istria, Croatia, with swimming pool
July 2018

Excellent villa. Very clean and spacious. Local agent very helpful and attended to all our requests We arrived around 1am and property was hard to locate up a dark road with no signage. Located next to a commercial lorry unit and opposite a car garage which wasn't advised in the initial advert hence a little disappointing. Nearest shop is around 2 miles away in Pazin butl cafe close by and grill restaurant. Only major point of note was the cleanliness of the pool which was green for a number of days and took around a week to get clear. Disappointing for the kids and could have been a health danger. Local agent acknowledged the problem which was rectified albeit we did lose a number of days of pool usage over the 2 week break. Property next door (same owner) had a similar issue and they demanded a refund. Not sure how we stand here for and compensation. . All in all great villa and lovely country. Recommended.
