House overview - owner's description

Away from the summer crowd, just a few steps from the sea and at the same time you are not longer then 10 minutes by car from the historical centre of Hvar town.

Stiniva is a small bay on the north coast of the island of Hvar. You will find here the right combination of elements you might needed for an interesting - active and relaxing vacation.
For those who seek to spend their holiday just a few steps from the sea, the bay of Stiniva is a great solution. At the same time you are not longer then 10 minutes away by car from the historical center of the city of Hvar, its culture, night life and traditional Dalmatian restaurants.
House has 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, kitchen and plenty of terraces, ideal to spend your leisure vacations.
Beach is only 150 m away, so all beach crowd is away from the house. Surrounded by vineyards and authentic island flora, house exudes with calmness and serenity. Mornings in Stiniva are something special :)
For those who like to hike a little bit, the small road that leads to Stiniva bay is great! Surrounded with all authentic herbs all the way, you will fill like on aroma therapy session :) But stay on the road for your own safety.
While you enjoy the calmness of the bay, your teenagers and children will enjoy the feeling of freedom.

From Harpenden

The house was in a lovely bay, and was less than a minutes walk to the pretty stony beach. It had a lot of outdoor space, with two dining tables, although there were no sun loungers on the premesis. Although the house is said to be for up to nine, it was just my husband and I that rented the house for our holiday. For us it was great, but I think that any more tha six people in the property would have been a tight squeeze, as there are only three bedrooms and two small bathrooms. The property was at the bottom of a very steep, windy, narrow road, which was not a problem, but it was a little nerve racking to drive down the road, especially in the pitch black at night. The owner was very friendly and helpful, and actually lives on site which was a comfort. Overall, id recommend if you want somewhere with a lot of private outdoor space, pretty views, and privacy.


From Langenzersdorf

The property was very nice and clean and the bay is a nice and quiet one. We were there with five children and a dog and they very much enjoyed the stay. The owner was extremely helpful and welcoming.

There are two negative points:
The road leading to the bay is a steep dirt road which was at times hardly manageable for cars other than 4wd. Parking is also difficult as you cannot get to the house by car but have to stop in front of a church not very far from the house and sometimes it was difficult to find a place there.
Secondly, one must be very careful with small children as there are steep steps in the garden and no low rails on the balcony and on the terrace.

Ivana made us feel totally welcome and was very accommodating, offering us the opportunity to call her if we needed anything. This we felt was over and above what is normally offered by other hosts. The Villa is beautiful and very spacious. It is clean. there are several different terrraces which are delightful to sit out on at different parts of the day, depending whether you want sun / shade. The Villa is very well equipped. Beach towels were provided which was a real bonus and there was a really good stock of washing detergents. The bay itself is lovely. The 5 children has their 'best holiday ever' swimming and snorkelling in the clear blue seas (water shoes are needed as there are lots of sea urchins). Stivina Bay is the perfect location to relax and enjoy the sunshine and peaceful setting. We found hiring a car to be expensive, so we used taxi's as the Villa is only 10 minutes from Havr. This worked well. We will definitely be back to enjoy the bay and Villa again! We went out with family and there was ample for us all to do and the Villa was big enough to very comfortably live together.

Wow. Just extraordinary. This is a beautiful, beautiful location, and Ivana was an incredible host. If you want a bit of seclusion, but also to still be able to get into Hvar town in 10 mins, this is idyllic.

Our stay at Stiniva bay villa was simply wonderful! Ivana was the most charming and friendly host and she could not have done more to make us feel welcome. The location is simply paradise, with only one other villa being in use during our stay meant that we pretty much had the cove to ourselves. Perched on the side of the valley surrounded by grapevines and olive trees the villa enjoys stunning views which are made the most of with beautiful outdoor areas on all sides on the house. The villa is in a secluded valley which guarantees you peace and tranquility. The house itself is extremely well maintained and beautifully presented, and we had everything we needed for our stay, right down to the welcoming pack of cold beers in the fridge after our long journey. I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wanting to get away from it all, and have already recommended it to friends who are hoping to visit later in the year. In fact, I am already thinking of going back next year! My only word of advice, you will need a car, as whilst. It's only a 15 minute drive to Hvar, it is off the beaten track.
