Apartments and Villas near Sumartin, Croatia
Excellent. Suited us perfectly. We returned to the mainland on the Sumartin-Makarska ferry which was very convenient and might have suited the journey out too.
Loved the village and the house. The land line number for the caretaker wasn't helpful as she used her mobile, and the person who answered didn't speak English
Caretaker was brilliant, extremely helpful (especially helping with sorting out a broken down hire car) , couldn't have asked for more. Even got up to see us off at 05.30
Impressed with: Beauty of scenery, cleanliness. Clarity of the sea. Friendliness of people.
Not impressed with: Our car hire company who were very obstructive when our car broke down, until Angela laid into them!
Recommend:The Golden Horn in Bol is lovely but very busy and nicest visited later in day -when parking was free too.
Favourite villa moment: The boys loved having a pool - and if they were happy we could relax.

All was fine. Only annoyance was wasps. Too many of them to make eating on the terrace relaxing. Recommend to have some wasp nest treatment after the summer, possibly also to leave spray for guests.
Caretaker was very good
Impressed with: Welcoming and easy going people, fine weather.
Not impressed with: Busy roads and slightly chaotic ferry crossing arrangements.
Recommend: Local boat hire very convenient and reasonable price.
Favourite villa moment: Relaxing in pool.

The welcome from the 'owner' was extremely friendly and informative. (Impressed with) The beautiful scenery, the stunning architecture and the friendliness of many people we met.

The property was very well kept and in very good condition. The comments we would make is that the pictures did not fully give justice to how nice the property was.
The owner was very helpful when we arrived and during our stay. He provided us excellent travel tips, arranged boat rental with a local guide, and even provided us fresh fish which he prepared for us. He was in no way intruding, but available for us when we had questions.
Everything worked perfectly.
Impressed with: Friendliness of the people. Clear and fresh water. Low prices.
Not impressed with: Number of tourists and the heat in the larger cities.
Recommend: The next door coffee shop/bar is a natural choice with a great atmosphere. The local restaurants have good food and friendly service. To have something extra the best recommendation would be to rent a boat and go across to the isolated bay at Pakomina for some very good food and a a few hours on a perfect small beach there.
Favourite villa moment: The favorite with the kids is the pool area - a very nice pool and a beautiful area with very good sun beds. As for the adults the outdoor kitchen with a spacious dining area was the best - enjoying grilled fresh fish with some good wine was a perfect evening.
