Property is great, absolute bargain for what it is. Views are great, used the pool and BBQ for most of our stay! Information about closest shops etc would have been helpful. Owners were very helpful and prompt.
Impressed with: Sunny, affordable, lots to do.
Stayed June 2016
Very helpful in assisting with our villa selection and communicating with the owner regarding our specific requirements.
Map of the immediate area showing shops/facilities would've been very helpful. There could've been some information on the condition of the road leading up to the villa - part of it could not be navigated without doing a three point turn at the edge of a precipice which could be extremely daunting to a nervous driver. An itemized list of facilities available in the villa (such as coffee machines etc - see below) would've been appreciated.
We enjoyed our stay in this secluded villa with amazing views of the town and Split and generally well-stocked for self-catering. A few small things were missing which would've made the stay quite a bit easier: there were no instructions on the (rather complicated) hot water system except (we think) in German which we could not translate. There was a lack of basic self-catering provision such as bin liners, toilet rolls and washing up liquid. There were dishwashers and washing machines but no detergent, coffee machines but no capsules or instructions. A map and list of facilities in the local area would've been very useful. There was a wasps nest in the guttering next to the upstairs balcony which meant at times we were inundated with flying pests and couldn't use the outside space as much as we would have liked and wasn't ideal with a toddler around. An iPod cable to the amazing stereo system would've been great.
The caretaker was very helpful upon our arrival, provided cot as requested and visited to clean pool etc during the week. When we initially called the number provided for the caretaker, we got through to a Croatian woman who could only attempt to communicate with us in French which, despite several of the party speaking basic French, proved impossible. This was extremely frustrating and stressful when we were keen to just get to the villa after a long day of travelling.
Impressed with: Friendly people, cheap food and booze, lovely seafood, generally great value, beautiful views.
Not impressed with: Road signage was confusing, mosquitos were annoying, sudden torrential downpours/hail storms and strong winds were unexpected.
Recommend: Restaurant Rus in central Zrnovnica was good for a local meal and the owner was extremely friendly and helpful, 0.5 hr walk from villa. Further out, Krka national park was an amazing day trip to beautiful islands, lakes and waterfalls, about 1.25 hours drive from the villa. Omis and Ciovo were great for sun bathing and swimming, and konoba duga restaurant on Ciovo was amazing for steak and seafood.
Favourite villa moment: Frolicking in the pool on hot sunny days
Croatian Villa Comments: detergents, bin liners, toilet rolls are generally not included with self-catering properties. These need to be purchased although often items such as washing up liquid are left behind by previous guests. A list of amenities and appliances are included on every villa page.
Stayed September 2013
Location was rated as Fair as the Villa is quite remote up very steep hills, not for the feint hearted, you really do need to drive everywhere, especially to the shops to pick up basic supplies. For our needs that was ok but for those who might want to stroll to a village or a busier night life it's not really available unless you get taxis to and from the villa.
Caretaker was very helpful, helped arrange for taxis (not easy trying to describe where the Villa was located) and was on hand to help with other queries. She provided a nice welcome after a long day of travelling and was also very helpful when we needed to pick up mosquito bite cream.
Impressed with: Beautiful scenery, very welcoming people, variety of things to do, national parks, historic towns, boat rides all within easy reach by car.
Not impressed with: Not really Croatia fault but hiring the car at the airport took time and meant the start of the holiday was perhaps more stressful than it could have been
Recommend: Restaurant Rus was very nice, the food was good, the staff very welcoming and the portions are generous, especially the Jumbo pizza! Krka National park was a good day out, better to book boat rides as the park is popular and the trips sell out early in the morning.
Favourite villa moment: Relaxing by the pool, the sun hits the pool all day so it perfect for the sun worshippers and with a big umbrella handy for those who like to sit in the shade.
