Apartments and Villas near Milna, Croatia
Owner was lovely and very helpful. The sun terraces and views were fantastic. Bedroom furniture could do with an update as could the shower but overall it was lovely. She was always available to answer any questions and was particularly helpful when two of our party got lost trying to find the villa!
Impressed with: The scenery and the peace and tranquillity. The wonderful architecture in all the villages.The wine!!
Not impressed with: Split Airport- far too busy.
Recommend: The entire Island is wonderful. Supetar and Sutevan in particular. Very handy location for nipping over to Split for the day too.
Favourite villa moment: The views. Impossible to describe them particularly at sunrise and sunset. The smell of the Rosemary bushes. Being able to walk down steps and swim in the clear water. Fabulous.

Good selection of Croatian villas. Owner was delightful. Made Creme Caramel and pancakes for us on several occasions.
Impressed with: Beautiful coastline, sea and towns. Good food and friendly people. Good value.
Not impressed with: Lack of sandy beaches.
Recommend: Restaurant Dalmatino in the village was very good. Restaurant Slika in Milna did great pizzas. Milna and Sutivan best for shopping.
Favourite villa moment: Evening sunsets and the view were stunning.

Owner was fantastic. Generous with food provided (egg custard on arrival, her now famous pancakes during our stay, as well as some cold beers, milk, juice and fruit). She also went out of her way to find and lend us some ice blocks to use, clearly borrowing some from a neighbour when she could not find her own. Always available, never intrusive, the perfect combination. Many thanks to her.
Found attractive property online. Responsive online and on phone. Air-conditioning in the bedrooms would certainly be welcome, but otherwise it was superb, thoroughly enjoyed and would love to return
Impressed with: Inexpensive, friendly, great weather, unspoiled, good food...
Not impressed with: Dog mess in Split.
Recommend: We had a good meal in the first of the two restaurants in Bobovisca. Loved Milna: charming, unspoiled but with excellent choice of restaurants and bars, great vibe and inexpensive. We hired a small boat with outboard for a day (kn500) which gave us a hugely enjoyed day from a different perspective (Stanko was excellent, has a couple of new boats and was very accommodating, providing fishing equipment for our children without any charge: 00 385 989 739 599). We visited Bol and Zlatni Rat just before peak season and were really impressed. Beautifully clean and relaxed. Also enjoyed brief visit to Sutivan.
Favourite villa moment: Just spending time around the villa and pool, enjoying the outdoor eating area and bbq. Those views...

Excellent. The property was beautiful and in a fantastically located area in the town making it easy to go out to local shops and restaurants. The caretaker, was lovely. Very friendly, helpful and whilst she was available by mobile phone at any time, she left us to our own devices after her initial welcome. She also very kindly let us stay in the villa until 12pm and even then, let us leave our luggage in the locked garden as our flight wasn't until evening.
We were hugely impressed with the whole service we got from Croatian Villas. Both the property and the resort were superb.
Impressed with: The island of Brac was beautiful and much less touristy than other places we have visited like Majorca or the Greek islands. The people were friendly, the food good and the prices for eating and drinking out incredibly good value.
Not impressed with: Nothing!
Recommend: The two restaurants we liked best were Palma and the other was just on the left of the steps down into the town - I've forgotten it's name! For coffee or drinks, Fjaka was lovely and reasonably priced. Also would highly recommend a day out on the Olinta boat with the lovely Captain Toni, Excellent value for money as it was a full 9 hours with stops for coffee, lunch and 3 swimming stops. Our teenagers loved it!
Favourite villa moment: The best times were simply relaxing by the pool or in the shade in the beautiful terraced garden and the chilled out evenings, after our harbour-side meal, sitting outside the villa playing cards with the children or reading.

What a fabulous villa – in a perfect location with a perfect view! Barbara is amazing and I would love to take her home.So many happy memories – so much fun. Recommend hiring a boat so that as well as enjoying the villa you can explore all the nearby islands, caves, lagoons etc.

Thank you so much for a lovely week at the villa. We had a wonderful time and particularly enjoyed our day out on the boat (where we saw dolphins!), the delicious restaurants nearby and sunbathing by the pool. A huge thank you to Barbara for looking after us all week. She really could not have been more helpful; nothing was too much trouble! We are leaving with wonderful memories, thank you again.

We were so happy to be here, and what a spectacular change of scenery post Covid lockdown. Your villa is gorgeous and worked perfectly for a group… our three kids and their friends. Perfect location for everyone to have some freedom. Barbara was an added bonus for us…, great organisational skills for our boat trips, shopping, manicures and pedicures, restaurants and two great evenings with a wonderful chef, sitting outside by the pool. Congratulations on creating a fabulous retreat with very fond memories.

Everything was perfect. Best choice for what we looked for. It is a true gem! Located in a very cozy area with wonderful access to the beach.
Owner was a big help for us when arriving in Croatia, giving us directions on where to go and was a very friendly host.
Impressed with: The color of the sea
Recommend: Bol is a charming little city and you can enjoy a nice diner in Milna at the Marina
Favourite villa moment: Everything. Everything was perfect

The villa's location was absolutely perfect and secluded. The villa was beautiful and equipped we everything we needed. However, the internet connection was almost non-existent which made it very difficult for even the simplest tasks, such as checking our email or browsing.
The owner was extremely helpful and pleasant.
Better driving instructions for the villa. For example the mileage from Milna to the house would have been helpful, as well as better explanation of how to find the property. In the end we managed, but it was not very easy.
Impressed with: The beauty.
Not impressed with: The lack of aesthetics and details when it comes to new buildings and houses. There were a lot of bees and flies which often made it hard to enjoy our outdoor meals.
Recommend: The nearest town Milna was charming. Bol was another nice town to visit. Konoba Kopacina in Donji Humac was the best restaurant we tried.
Favourite villa moment: There were a few: going for an early morning swim in front of the house. We liked having cocktails on the deck before sunset with a beautiful view of the bay.
Villa Comments: The internet is good enough for e-mail and in general guests are satisfied with the internet connection. Up till now we have no problem whatsoever with receiving or sending e- mails. We are sorry guests experienced problems although we do recommend if guests are finding internet connection very slow they let us know and we can take a look and see what the problem is.

I recently stayed at this beautiful villa near Milna (on the island of Brac) with my family of 4 and another couple of friends with 2 young children. The villa met my expectations in every way: the main house is nicely designed and has 3 bedrooms (the master bedroom is huge!) and air conditioning throughout. There is an annexed cottage (very nicely and recently renovated) where my teenager children slept more than comfortably (it has a bathroom and air conditioning as well!). In the main house, there is a large kitchen with a big wood burning oven, so we enjoyed grilled meals every day.
During the day, we all had fun in the reasonably sized swimming pool which is surrounded by trees and flowers: overall, the grounds are lovely landscaped and nicely manicured. But if that is not enough, there is also a beautiful semi-private beach accessible directly from the property.
At night, we ate outdoor in the gorgeous patio overlooking the bay, but our favorite area was the additional elevated, covered terrace where we had drinks and appetizers while admiring the wonderful landscape of the island. The location is just perfect!
Finally, the property owner, is attentive and courteous: her charm is just the final cherry to the cake! I have already recommended this property to other friends and family.
