Make a holiday rental, home or villa in Croatia your home away from home

Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

Dalmatia is the eastern Croatian region of the Adriatic Sea, which at only 50km across at its widest part has a disproportionate amount of coast. Dalmatian Coast holiday rentals are all within a short distance of the coves, secluded beaches, islands and inlets of the coast. Because of the rugged coast and numerous islands of all sizes and topographies, sailing is a large business in this part of Croatia. The coast is known for its warm sea, consistent sailing winds, and beautiful wooded islands.

Places to holiday on the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

The cities of Zadar, Sibenik, Split and Dubrovnik are stunning, timeless medieval cities, with fishing boats bobbing in their marinas or out on the blue waters of the Adriatic.

The national parks of Paklenica Karst River, Korati Archipelago, and the Mljet Island within an island are all fabulous tourist attractions, showing the remarkable natural landscape and allowing it to be explored without damage.

Dubrovnik, the Adriatic’s ‘Crown Jewel’ is a magnificent ancient walled coastal town, with wide marble boulevards, 15th century fountains, 12th century monasteries and Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque structures.

Croatia’s second largest city, Split, dates back to Roman times, and the walls and impressive imperial quarters remain. This part of town and the surrounding maze of homes, alleys and churches are a UNESCO World Heritages site, and it is little wonder why.

Things to do on the Dalmatian Coast

The Dalmatian coast holiday rentals do not merely let you enjoy the staggering ancient stone walled towns and villages clinging to the rocks above the shimmering blue sea, or relax and soak up the sun in her coves and beaches, but allows you to enjoy the timeless culture and relaxed lifestyle of this part of Croatia.

There are many wrecks from traders and marine battles to investigate off the shores by scuba diving. A particular highlight is the downed B-17 bomber off the island of Komiza. The sea is also used for sailing and boating, which attracts novices and professionals to drift on the constant breezes finding island paradises or relaxing in the sun.

The Roman villas in Split are well worth a visit for any enthusiast, but for genuine culture, the Summer Festival in Split is incredible. Performing arts, food and music fill the theatres, squares, galleries and streets of the town, and the atmosphere is remarkable.

For those who like road trips, it's worthwhile to travel up the Croatian Coast, through Kvarner and Istria. You could continue through Slovenia and end up in Trieste in Italy within a couple of days leisurely driving.

Weather on the Dalmatian Coast, Croatia

Summer on the Dalmatian Coast is warm and sunny, with average temperatures in July and August around 30°C, so it is a perfect time to take a holiday rental on the Dalmatian Coast and hire a boat. The winters however can be cold and harsh, with temperatures dropping to around 4°C, but if you take a jacket, the winter brings out the character and beauty of the Dalmatian Coast in a new way.

Beautiful location in a character house but with all the mod cons we needed. We had planned to do a bit more exploring of the island but when we saw the view and the terrace we stayed put for most of the week, lazing around, swimming and cooking on the BBQ. Lots of beautiful walks nearby - buses easy for the teenagers to go to Supetar for the waterparks etc. Didnt really eat out much but bars were good, with a bit of liveliness but not too much for us middle aged folk! Some great local music too with lots of families out and about for the vening promenage. Village is very friendly too. When we did explore we found the island to be stunning with many places to visit. We've been expats for 20 years and been to many beautiful places all over the world but the family agreed this was one of the best places we have stayed for the balance of views, things to do and relaxation. Perfect. Thanks for letting us stay there!

I can safely say this has been our best experience of staying at a homeaway or airbnb property. Jan was the perfect host and helped answer any questions before and during our stay, I got the feeling that she really cared that we enjoyed ourselves. The property is located in the loveliest part of Vis town and is a short distance to the nicest restaurants. The apartment has amazing views over the bay from all room of the property. The terrace is big enough to sunbathe and also has a dining area, it gets the sun from the early afternoon right through to the evening when you can watch the sunset. The apartment was very modern inside and cleaned to an immaculate standard, it had everything from beach towels to super powerful aircon. In fact the bedroom was so airy and spacious with a huge bed I slept better than at home. Vis itself is a stunning island and a place I expect will get more and more popular. The beaches are picturesque, the food is great and so is the wine! We will definitely be back!!

My room was very big and it had a door directly to the pool as well as the property has full access to fast wifi. Over all I had such a good time here and I would definitely recommend this to families with teenagers/children
