We had an amazing stay at Harbour House. Literally a heavenly location with views to die for. House really rustic and quirky but had all you need for the perfect stay.

This holiday gave us everything we were looking for. Peace and quiet, incredibly beautiful surroundings and a wonderful house with a great pool. The location of the house requires a car but it didn't do us any because it was easy to make day trips, for example to the Makarska Riviera. The host and his mother gave us a very warm welcome and even prepared a barbecue one day. We are so pleased with our entire stay. Can highly recommend this accommodation.

What a find! We've now stayed here two years running as we like it so much. Firstly, don't worry about the negative review on here – during both our visits, we honestly have not encountered the problems mentioned in it. Although the facilities in the house are quite basic, they really are more than adequate. The interior of the house is a little dated but there’s an abundance of charm, character and personal touches instead. The surrounding gardens/grounds are simply idyllic with plenty room to explore and so many different places to lounge around and relax. The terrace makes for a great place for dining at any time of the day, with lovely views over to the mainland. There are plenty shaded areas too if you want to escape from the sun. Having one's own access to the sea is wonderful. There are swimming pool style steps into the sea and paved steps too, so accessing the water for swimming is no problem. We spent much of our time just lazing around the garden, on the jetty or in the sea. I wouldn't recommend jumping off the wooden landing stage / platform into the sea as it's nowhere near deep enough! But it does make a wonderful 'on the sea terrace' for lounging/basking on, watching the sunset from, or even star gazing at midnight. Thick rubber soled water shoes are definitely recommended as the sea bed has plenty sea urchins in places. To confirm, as the description is a little misleading, there are two bedrooms (both equipped with a double bed). There are two basic sofa beds in the living room which potentially could sleep 4 additional people. Although the building is split level, all the accommodation and the terrace are all on the one level, with a basement just for storage on the lower level. There are tiled steps leading up to the terrace, on which you just need to exercise care if wet footed (common sense). In our opinion, these are not as treacherous as some reviews have stated. It is warm in the house at night, but there are multiple fans available for use and we weren't troubled by it. We've used Maja's boat on a couple of days for exploring the local waters and it does have an anchor if you wish to just stop and have a swim from it in the open water, although it is quite tricky climbing back on board – even with the rope ladder we found in the basement of the house. It's definitely not a necessity to have the boat all the time though, as some people have mentioned here. The path from the property to where you can leave your car makes for a delightful 10 minute walk and is really no problem as long as you are fine with walking on uneven ground and don’t mind the dark in the evening of course. (It’s also quicker for getting back to your car than by boat) I don't think the rental charge of 25euros per day for the boat is unreasonable at all. I think the normal rate for renting a boat for a day at a resort is 100euros or more. When you first arrive the very welcoming Maja meets you at the village quayside and transports you and your luggage to the property via the boat. Don't worry about having too much luggage - there's plenty room in the boat. And I'd recommend stocking up on groceries before you arrive so that these can be transported too. Likewise happens in reverse at the end of the stay. There are a couple of small supermarkets in nearby Ston for groceries and numerous restaurants (heartily recommend Restaurant Stagnum). There's plenty scope for exploring along the Peljesac peninsular. If you're into walking/hiking, Mount Sv. Ilija near Orebic is definitely worth checking out - amazing views from the top at 960m. And we found the small beach at the village of Borak (near Potomje) a great spot for snorkelling - not too busy either. We would most definitely recommend this place and are sure to return ourselves. Finally, if you are not aware, it is a legal requirement in Croatia for accommodation hosts to register the details of their guests with the Croatian tourist board upon their arrival. So, don’t be alarmed if when you stay in Croatia, you are asked for your passport details on arrival. We weren’t aware of this rule on our first trip to Croatia and were taken aback a bit.

We had a lovely stay here. The house is traditional and basic but has everything needed for a lovely holiday. It's off the beaten track but close enough to many sights as long as you have a car. Communication was first class and Doris also provided tips on what to see and where to go which was great. The kids loved cooling off in the plunge pool. We all enjoyed using the outside shower as well - can't beat rinsing off in the sun or under the stars. There is only air con upstairs so the kids were a bit warm in the downstairs bedroom a few nights. Because you are in the trees, bring mosquito repellent if they are attracted to you. Nice to have 2 bathrooms as there were 6 of us. Made a nice base for us to explore the local areas.

We had a lovely stay at this property. The large amount of outside space and easy access to the sea makes it a real gem. Tereza was there to welcome us and popped in during the week to check that we were ok. The local area is great with lots of little beaches all along the coast that never seem to be particularly crowded. We'd definitely go back.
