Apartments & Villas on Hvar Island
Great apartment, but nightly music concerts just meters from our windows until up to 4am in the morning were a nightmare.
Impressed with:Clear sea, great food.
Not impressed with: The loud music until 4 am in the morning.
Recommend: Spizza restaurant for breakfast and pizza. Marko's for fish platter.
Favourite villa moment: When the music stopped at 4 am on our final morning.
Villa Comments: There was a municipality day on the 15 August in Jelsa, and there was a concert on Aug 14 and 15. It was really extremely noisy concert, so the number of house owners (including me) filed a complaint to the city mayor. Besides Aug 14 and 15 there was also a wine fair on Aug 29-30 with one more concert although it is a less noisy one. On all the other days the level of noise is typical for a summer touristic destinations. I have already given my apologies to Ms.Quinn prior to her departure.

Property suited all of our needs. Rooms perfect, kitchen/lounge brilliant, pool amazing! Villa allowed us to decorate the villa with banners/balloons as we were there for a friend’s hen party. It would have been good to have been advised that the hot water (showers) was not constant - meant that some of our party had to have cold showers. But this was not a major problem.
Villa staff very helpful - great introductions and told us all the best places to go - with a map and how to get there. Very attentive - could call on them at all times if needed. Couldn’t ask for more
Thank you to everyone who was involved in our booking and staff at the villa. All very helpful and knowledgeable.
Impressed with: Beautiful coastline, Brilliant bars/parties, lovely and helpful people. Excellent value for money Sea food absolutely to die for!
Not impressed with: Couldn't fault it!
Recommend: Blue Cave Tour was brilliant. Boat trips / island hopping - we organised a speed boat or our whole group which was a great end to the holiday. Hula Hula was 5 mins away - had the best day there. B.B Club was a good bar - staff amazing
Favourite villa moment: Our friends face when we had decorated - with the help of staff! A fun afternoon at the pool - playing silly games as we knew we were in private.

We were extremely happy with the villa! It was bigger than expected and each room was perfect! Tamara on reception was polite and helpful and the maintenance man was nice and efficient- we had a couple of issues with the hot water.
Impressed with: The beautiful scenery harbour,ocean and island views
Not impressed with: Some of the local people were a bit rude/unhelpful.
Recommend: Hula hula bar was perfect for a bit of atmosphere by the beach! Pink champagne was decent to finish the night of with a dance :)
Favourite villa moment: Arrival. We were so excited at the look of the place! We jumped in the pool fully clothed :)

The daily maid service (stated on your webpage) was not provided. After our requirement the maid came once (during a stay of 7 days). The neighbors had a lot of complaints, mostly without any reason. However, the caretakers were friendly and had understanding for that..
Impressed with: The coast
Not impressed with: Some impolite tourists, most of them was friendly though
Recommend: Carpe diem, restaurants in the upper centre of the city
Favourite villa moment: HV032
Villa comment: There is no daily maid service stated on the web page.

I just wanted to say thank you for helping us with a wonderful stay in Croatia. Everything was simply perfect. The apartment and service were outstanding. Caretaker was really helpful, very professional and hands-on.
I think you have been very helpful and professional. Thanks for ensuring a wonderful vacation! I really appreciate all your help.
Impressed with: Clean water, nice people
Not impressed with: Too much drunk teenagers and partying in Hvar town
Recommend: Gariful restaurant
My sister-in-law booked a nearby villa and said you'd been good to deal with. We needed one nearby so made sense to deal with same company. No hitches at all which was a real positive.
The person who owned the villa really enhanced the whole experience and went out of his way to make our stay even more enjoyable. A wonderful host, more than helpful.
Impressed with: The weather, exciting vibe and really friendly people.
Not impressed with: Split Airport, especially the flight out. Standing room only in the departure lounge!
Recommend: Lungo Mare which was only 50 metres away and run by the owner's cousin. We dined there three times and were given special treatment. Not bad seeming there was 15 of us.
Favourite villa moment: Can't split them, so will have to nominate 2.
The first was a tour of the island hosted by the owner for all 15 of us. He arranged two extra cars, with me driving one, my brother-in-law the other, and Vincent taking the lead in his car. The two cars belonged to him and his brother. Showed us special places, and where he was brought up. Wouldn't take any money, not even for petrol. We were the first group to stay in his newly refurbished villa and I think he was just happy we were having such a good time.
The second was a full day with 15 of us out in a boat, exploring the nearby coast. The driver and accompanying lady host were great company and told us a lot about Hvar's history.
Stayed July 2017
Impressed with: Beauty friendliness of people
Not impressed with: Ferry arrangements and Split airport
Recommend: Boat trip via owner
Favourite villa moment: Terrace
Stayed August 2016
The catamaran tickets were always booked up, it would have been useful to have a representative from the villa buy our tickets in advance. Quentin was very helpful in sorting out a private boat, but it was expensive in comparison to other private boats.
Impressed with: Beautiful sea and place
Not impressed with: The food, it was very salty.
Recommend: Carpe Diem Bar/Club.
Favourite villa moment: BBQ outside and drinks
Stayed June/July 2012
Our experience with your company was fantastic. The Hvar Villa was lovely and had everything except a laundry room which would be very helpful for a family our size. The staff were delightful and difficult to say goodbye to after three weeks. I would recommend Hvar to anyone, any age. We were 20 to 82 and I am not sure what age group enjoyed it the most.
Stayed June/July 2015
I want to let Croatian Villas know how extremely happy we were with the Villa ....It was absolutely fantastic. Caretaker is fantastic!!! Thank you for making a dream vacation for us. I am a travel agent in New York and I will use you again and recommend you to my clients!!
Stayed September 2011
Cleanliness was excellent; however, we would have preferred to have had the bed sheets changed every day or every other day (instead of once a week I think). Impressed with The genuine friendliness of the local people working in the service business there. We had a truly great vacation.
