House all alone in woods, 10 meters from see, gives you incredible privacy to enjoy nature
Villa Maja is located near the historic ports of Ston and Mali Ston, 12 km from the main Dalmatian coast road at the entrance to the Peljesac peninsular. The house can only be reached from the village of Hodilje (2-3 km from Ston) by a 400 metre footpath, not by car. This guarantees you complete privacy and tranquillity. Alternatively, you can take a boat (available for hire with the house) from Hodilje to the private landing 100 metres from the house.
The house is set in spacious grounds on 3 levels and isolated from other properties, so you will be completely alone. The living room opens onto a big tiled terrace containing chairs and tables with fine views across the sea to the Dalmatian mainland. The shallow sandy bay in front of the house is very safe and good for swimming, sloping gradually down into deeper water. You can also jump off the boat landing into a small rocky bay.
The villa is exclusive and contains a big living room with satellite TV, which can sleep 4 more, kitchen, large bathroom with bathtub and separate shower cubicle. Outside there is a garden shower, two barbeques (gas and charcoal), washing machine and plenty of deck chairs and recliners.
We stay in Hodilje, in a separate house where we can offer you a safe parking place during your stay. Hodilje has no shops but it has a friendly local taverna that also can be easily reached by boat. Ston has a daily market selling fruit, vegetables and other regional produce, plus 2 supermarkets, a wine shop, pharmacy, hospital, police station, post office, bank, bakery and many cafes and restaurants. When you arrive, we will carry you and your luggage to the villa by boat. The journey takes about 5 minutes. , ...
There are 3 bedrooms: two double with French beds and one with 2 double twin beds. Maximum for 8 people, but we recommend 6 adults, or 4 adults and 4 children.
Places of interest
Mali Ston, only a short journey by boat from the villa, houses some of the best seafood restaurants in Croatia. Its bay is famous for mussels and oysters while the town is surrounded by the longest wall fortifications to be found anywhere in Europe. The region is full of sights to visit. Dubrovnik is only 60 km to the south and the island of Korcula is easily reached by ferry from the end of the Peljesac peninsular.
Internet and Cell:
Internet USB flesh drive can be bought from Vip mobile, cost about 20 euros and it gives you 2gb of data. You can also buy cell phone card with number for around 13 euros, that gives you same amount of cell phone credit. Its sold in city Ston. Reception of signal in house is good. Maja, your host, might have a flash drive so that you will have to top up credit for internet, and not to buy flesh card
The beautiful island of Mljet, a National Park, is also close.
Beautiful and very silent place. I can recomend the place for families with children. However you definitely need a boat due to logistics. There was no dishwasher there. Therefore we used mother in law for that purpose )

Lovely place with a lot of charm and comfortable. Jellies essential as the only way into sea from Villa involves jumping off spikey rocks or picking your way through sea urchins of which there are masses. Fun to use the boat from time to time but no anchor or ladder for swimmers and very few places within reach where you could tie up. Maja very helpful. Great base and perfect if you are looking for somewhere very quiet. Teenagers had cabin fever by the end. Mouse in the house but visiting cat sorted that out. Real treat to see a tortoise seen on path through woods that takes you to the car.

Absolutely quiet and very private place. No need to go anywhere to get usual holiday benefits - your private piece of sea is just off your terrace, massive garden at your disposal. Most days we spent on the terrace enjoying fresh fruits, excellent local wine and just coffee when kids were on their own in the water for the whole day picking crabs, shells and sea horses. A lot of urchins as well though so make sure you have swimming shoes. A snorkelling mask is a must - abundance of life underwater mesmerises.
Maja is a very welcoming and helpful host. All queries and questions responded quickly. Figs from her tree that she regularly supplied us with and allowed to pick up ourselves are exquisite!
The boat is a very nice to have to go around the bay, also for shopping and dining in Mali Ston. The long rocky path to where car is to be kept is also beatiful, but make sure you have a torch if youre late.
Definitely want to come there again.

We had a wonderful holiday here in August 2011. The house lies in a secluded position, and ensures a very quiet stay, with direct access to the sea. The sea has crystal clear waters, and we enjoyed snorkeling and looking at the fish, octopus, urchins etc. The luggage has to be brought by boat, but there is also a fairly easy walking path through woods, taking you to the house in between 5 and 10 minutes from where the car can be parked. There is no airconditioning, but air from the sea in the evenings is cool, and there are fans in the sleeping rooms, so we had no problems with the summer heat. The gardens and terrace are wonderful, and we spent whole days lying and reading below a majestic palm tree.

I have to say that this place is really excellent for those who enjoy a pristine nature and a privacy. You are really detached, and that is the biggest value for people like me living in big bustling cities. Own access to the sea and a boat to linger in the bay and choose whatever place to swim. Moreover you have many wineries just a few kilometers away with a little bit expensive but exceptional wine and a fine spirit lozovaca. Our border collie enjoyed it as well. He could do whatever he wanted without our commands due to very safe location. And when you started to feel alone there was always the city of Ston not far away with delicious food in restaurants.

An absolutely wonderful location and very helpful and friendly owners and really good array of cooking equipment. The one thing missing was a boat to use to get around. We had been promised this but it was no longer available when we got there which was a shame. Also the advert is slightly misleading as there are only 2 bedrooms ( not 3) and an open plan dining room and lounge. It was no problem for us as there was plenty of room and sheets and towels.
Overall a very relaxing place in idyllic surroundings in very unspoilt countryside.

the property was spotless clean, it had everything you could wish for, and more. .the facilities that it offered were excellent, and it wasnt far from the main road, with eateries, shops, and other facilities, but was far enough away not to have any noise from revellers. I would definatley use this property again, as it was to a high standard and good value for money
