Village house overview - owner's description

This is a beautiful white stone house in the fishing village of Postira. Totally refurbished for 2016 we have converted the large ground floor summer kitchen into a luxurious sitting/dining area.

Completely refurbished for 2016, Orange Grove House is a spacious, beautifully located seafront house in a small fishing village on the Dalmation coast. The house is in the heart of the village, near to the Supermarket, Post Office, open air farmers' market and little stone fish market, and was refurbished for 2016.

Croatia Airlines, Easyjet, British Airways and Whizzair fly regularly to Split and discounted fares for these can be obtained through Travel Republic.

Orange Grove House is not your typical holiday house by the sea. This beautiful seafront house, is extremely spacious with large airy rooms, all of which have panoramic views either over the harbour or the garden behind the house. The property's size, the nature of its construction out of Brac stone, and its soundproof qualities make it very suitable for two related families to share a holiday there, each one having a floor to themselves, and sharing the huge, newly created konoba sitting room and the large dining terrace. The ground floor summer kitchen has been reopened so that salads or deserts can be prepared on the same level as the barbecue. The original kitchen, which has been refurbished, remains to serve the dining terrace and guests can enjoy sea views from the sun terrace overlooking the sea. The totally enclosed garden provides a safe play area for children. It is unusual to find such a large house on the coast that has not been divided up for multiple occupation.

Constructed of the same white marble as The White House, this is an authentic Croatian dwelling. Elegant and spacious, it retains many of the original features with which it was built including the original floorboards [some of which are 24 inches wide].

The beds are modern and extremely comfortable [2 king-sized, 1 small double, 2 single beds].
For larger family groups we can offer 2 extra single beds in the twin bedroom.

The cost of renting this property includes the compulsory Croatian Tourist Tax payable per person per night and Croatian VAT/PDV which is charged at 13%.

Postira is a lovely village. Although the fishermen still go out early in the morning in their boats, Postira is becoming quite cosmopolitan. Its newly created white marble solarium and swimming beach, a beautiful oval on the seafront a few minutes away from the house, is really fantastic for both adults and children. There are plenty of opportunities to swim from other local beaches and our local hotel has a fabulous swimming pool and solarium that guests can use if they buy drinks or use the buffet. Sandy Lovrecina beach, with its sweet little restaurant, is only 15 minutes away by car and there are many little sheltered coves around the coast. Close to hand, there are many restaurants producing excellent and inexpensive food, including a pizza restaurant near the solarium which serves really great pizzas. The Island of Brac is about the size of the Isle of Wight so travelling around it is easy, either by car or by means of buses that depart from the little bus station in Supetar, the little Ferry Port.

The house is on the harbour right in the centre of the village, which is where most life in the village occurs. Near the house is a bar which hosts live events three or four times a week. Guests can either take part in these or watch the singers, bands or fire jugglers from the terrace over a glass of wine. These can be quite loud but we have done our best to reduce the noise levels for those who want to go to bed early by installing double glazing on the second floor. The first floor rooms are protected from most the of the sound by the terrace which tends to block it out.

From Herts., United Kingdom Jul 2011

Lovely property. 7 adults including 4 teens, plenty of room, but description not accurate. Had to pay tourist tax even though it states this is included. The tv was not working (2 very wet days!). Phoned and was told someone would come that afternoon to fix it. No one came. According to complaints book found later on top of fridge tv has not worked since 2008! No BBQ, oven gloves or outside light on stairs down to second bathroom which couldnt be used during the night. The lock on inside bathroom door was broken.
Such a shame these faults have just been left. All of the above have been mentioned previously but ignored. Would recommend this lovely villa if basic repairs carried out. What a pity they cant be bothered.

From Bristol, United Kingdom May 2006

We had a fantastic holiday. The villa had everything we could possibly have needed even down to emergency telephone numbers, phrase book and recommendations of where to eat and places to visit. The neighbours were very friendly and helpful with their recommendations and the owners friend Tony called several times to make sure everything was alright. Five minutes from the villa was a large Supermarket which had a selection of everything we needed and beside it was three bars/restaurants also a new restaurant opened while we were there all provided very good food and were very child friendly. The area was quiet, had little traffic and the children loved the play areas and see ing the peacocks. I would have not problems recommending the villa to my family and friends.

Lovely old stone house in the middle of the small seaside town. Large bedrooms but one small single room. Kitchen was decent and a lovely al fresco dinner table. It was great for having dinners outside. It was a great place to stay.

We were very pleased when we got to the orange grove house - The rooms are lovely - beautifull old building with lovely furniture . The location is great close to everything. The beds where excellent. But there where some downsides - we travelled early may - and had coldish wet weather several days - this made things a bit claustraphobic - the house was cold. The downstairs bathroom was also cold - and you have to go outside and down some stairs to get to it - not what you want on cold wet days - but upstairs bathroom good - great shower. The upstairs living room is awkwardly furnished and small - the kids used it as a play room - ideal for that - but not somewhere to sit and relax for adults - as we had bad weather this was a problem for us - the terasse is lovely - but not rain proof ! The balcony you see in the picture with flowers is not for use - there is a small one on the inside of it but with no furniture.
But all in all the house is lovely - and charming - and good value for money - some heating in bathrooms would be good for colder periods - but in sommer season this must be a lovely place to stay - recomend anyone to take a walk to nearby village "dol"(30 - 40 mins) and eat at dinos - with football pitch across the road - delicios food - adults and children where delighted!

Super stone house with big cool rooms and a gorgeous shaded dining area. Throwing open the shutters in the morning and being greeted with the sparkling sea spreading out in front of us was far in excess of what we expected, Really lovely holiday home. Thank you. Angela Miller. A wonderful experience, in a truly picturesque place. Steven from UK

We have just returned from a wonderful stay at your house in Postira. It suited us really well and we spent a good deal of time swimming at the local beach. Karen Grey. We loved staying in your house at Postira. The town was absolutely charming. It was marvellous to be righton the water front and so close to the shops for our supplies. The cove around the corner proved to be a wonderful place for swimming and picnics. Tom Butler.

"The property was as good as we expected. The situation in the village was great and the island was big enough to explore. We all loved it. The beds were all very comfortable. The bathrooms, especially the main one, were nice. The appliances all worked well. The lack of a lounge area was not a problem as we were very happy relaxing and socializing on the two patios. We all had a fantastic holiday in Orange Grove House. Thank you very much." Review received from Villarenters guest.

Extra information

It is unusual to find such a large sea-front house on the coast that has not be divided up for multiple occupation. We have opened up the very large, cool summer kitchen on the ground floor so guests can have the pleasure of using the original stone barbeque, whilst chilling out with a glass of wine. Guests especially like this feature. We are able to accommodate up to 11 adults, 1 young child in a sofabed and 3 extra people on very comfortable mattresses.

We have been visiting Croatia since 1968 and when, In 2003, we had the opportunity to purchase Harbour House, Bol and Orange Grove House, Postira, both on the Island of Brac on the Dalmatian coast, we jumped at it. We have never regretted this and hope that our guests feel as happy in Croatia as we do. Croatia is a wonderful country. It is clean and pristine. The sea is completely crystalline and clear and a joy for swimming and the watersports that Croatia offers are absolutely fantastic.
