Clearer information about departure time would have been helpful. Your website states that villas need to be vacated by 11am, but our housekeeper wanted us out before 10am.
Fantastic location, right on seafront. Very spacious and comfortable, although decor and equipment was a little dated, and kitchen cupboards smelt musty.
Local contact and housekeeper were very friendly and helpful. Very efficient, helpful service. No problems.
Impressed with: Beautiful scenery and coastline. Fascinating historical towns and cities.
Recommend:Prsac Restoran in Razanj was outstanding. We enjoyed an excellent meal in the capable hands of our host.
Favourite villa moment: Relaxing on the terrace and in the shady garden, dipping into the sea to cool down when required. Wonderful!

The property is absolutely wonderful, comfortable, and attractive. The location is outstanding. This villa delivered everything we hoped for, and more. The beautiful beach with its clear sea right outside the front gate was quite magical. The facilities: good comfortable bedrooms and very good bathrooms (great showers). The kitchen is adequate, though a bit basic. Washing machine was very useful and much appreciated. The BBQ - just great.
Baby cot was not available in spite of checking with you that it would be there. The owners did eventually produce one, though the communication was a bit challenging. There are basically 3 things that would be very useful to have in this otherwise wonderful place: - air condition units (one in the main house and one in the annex would do) - microwave oven (quite essential these days) - Wi-Fi (this would upgrade the villa and make life a lot easier) These three additions would make the stay absolutely perfect, and we would not hesitate to book the same place again and again. A house handbook would be useful: - welcoming message - instructions & recommendations - local transport (e.g. boat taxi service) - more info on local shopping, and on cafes and restaurants - places of interest etc. Perhaps a Visitors' Book would be useful for us to leave a message, which would have been highly positive, if we had the chance.
The booking process was remarkable impersonal, very much focused on the process as business transaction. The first communication told me nothing about the place I have booked, but told me a great deal about how I should pay and when, and about the penalties should I fail to observe each step on time. Not very friendly, which is a shame. On the other hand, everyone I spoke to on the phone was very friendly and helpful.
Impressed with: Above all the clear sea. The old city of Trogir.
Not impressed with: Surprising lack of cafes and restaurants in many beautiful seaside villages. Oddly unattractive architecture when it comes to present developments. There is a feel of post-communist awkwardness in the way they manage their tourist industry.
Recommend: There is a basic, reasonably stocked supermarket in the village, but tends to be more expensive. We would recommend a supermarket on the way to Rogoznice by car. Also, would recommend taking a boat taxi to Rogoznice, where there are many good restaurants. Also, for those looking for fresh fish - early morning directly from fishing boats at the car park by the bridge. A drive to Trogir is a must. It is an old historical town - just beautiful. There is a big market, and many good restaurants on the island.
Favourite villa moment: We had memorable and outstanding moments daily. Early morning swim, watching the sunset, using the barbeque, snorkelling and finding an octopus.....

The agent was very helpful when we arrived and arranged for the housekeeper to meet us earlier than we had stated. He was very pleasant and helpful. My only concern was that we decided to leave early on the Saturday and were unable to contact the agent to ask where to put the keys. This also cost us a phone call to England to let you know where we had put the keys,
It would have been helpful to have information on the area. We did ask at the information desk but they were not particularly helpful. Very narrow entrance which just allowed our Skoda Yeti 4x4 to get through. Any wider car would struggle to go down the entrance road.
Impressed with: It is driving distance from Slovakia has the sun and a warm sea.
Not impressed with: Trying to cross the borders!!!!!
Recommend: We were disappointed in the Restaurant in Razanj but enjoyed a lovely seafood meal in Rogozniza - Antonio. Not cheap but delicious!!!
Favourite villa moment: First sight of both the villa and the annex were that they were perfect for our family and the sea being on the doorstep was perfect for us.
