Amazing hosts. So kind, so helpful. Sophia baked us such great cakes, Josip took us to the supermarket, Davor and Josipa booked us taxis and helped us with all questions and needs. The villa is beautiful, the pool to die for and the whole ambience peaceful and relaxing. We had a wonderful holiday made even better by our hosts wonderful kindness. Can't wait to go back.
Four adults and five children stayed in this lovely villa for 10 days in August 2018. For ease of reading I will summarise the positives and things to consider below:
The owner and his wife were extremely helpful before arrival and during our stay. if there were any issues or queries I could contact the owner and he always replied within half an hour. On one occasion there was an issue with the door lock at 11pm and he came straight out to the villa to sort the problem. On our penultimate day he and his wife brought us the most delicious meal for our whole family ; it was the Croatian dish Peka which was amazing and a very kind gesture.
The villa is modern, clean and very well equipped for a long stay. The pool is a good size and there were two seating areas, including a large table for families to eat around. There is also a small grass area. The villa is attached to the owner's other business which seems to be a builders' merchants and whilst I thought this would be noisy when I first saw it, it actually didn't cause any issues. I heard the odd machine reversing but this was limited and hardly noticeable. The villa is split into two apartments; one upstairs and one downstairs which was very handy as we were two families sharing the villa. It was nicely decorated and spacious inside.
The villa is around 15 minutes drive from the airport and 30 minutes drive into Split which was lovely to visit but complicated to drive into for tourists. Please be aware that the villa is in a residential area and siesta time is 2-5pm and so you will be expected to make no noise between these times as the locals came to complain to us that the children were being too noisy. We got around this by taking them to the local beach which is a ten minute walk downhill during the siesta period. There is only one cafe/ beach bar at the local beach and one very good restaurant in Kastel Gomillica called Angelos which served delicious pizza, pasta, steaks etc. I wouldn't bother with any other restaurants in the immediate area but there are good ones in Kastel Stari which is 2km away and is a bigger resort with plenty shops, bars and restaurants.
RENT A CAR
I would definitely recommend this villa but you would need to hire a car. There is a Lidl 2 km along the road and lots of places to visit like Kastel Stari, Trogir and Krka National Park 1 hour away which was amazing.
I would definitely come to this region again.
