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.
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 by car from the historical centre of the city of Hvar, its culture, night life and traditional Dalmatian restaurants.
This bay away from the summer crowd is ideal for families with children.
Clear sea, large and nice beaches, and a pier good for swimming, diving and fishing.
The house is 80 m from the beach, surrounded by green pine trees, old olive-groves, vineyards; lavender and rosemary scent all around.
The house has been rubuilt in 2010, at the first floor there is a big kitchen, bathroom and a double bedroom. At the second floor a double and a triple room (single + bunk bad).
All bedrooms are air conditioned.
The living areas are two big terraces outside. One in front of the kitchen covered by vine leaves shadow and the second one by a big stone barbeque.
Markets and supplies are not availabe in the cove. The closest place is Hvar town (10 minutes by car). You can order to the owner your starting supply for the house as well as fresh brad in the morning.
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.
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.
