We were around 2 families and we wanted to have some peaceful time to catch up, relax and sunbath. And the place was perfect for that: clean, spacious and well equipped (Jacuzzi and sauna still need some work but we have been informed about it and definitely did not miss it during summer). For Croatian standard very spacious house, each room has a separate bathroom. We loved it! We like to travel around so this was our base to explore nice beaches and towns of Krk island. Beautiful town of Krk, Vrbnik or Baska just a few kilometers away. From Punat, also closeby, it was easy to catch up tour boats or boat taxis. The house is located in Kornic, a small village overlooking the bay of Punat. The garden around the house needs a few years to grow and it will be even more wonderfull place to be.

It is centrally located so is ideal for exploring the islands with all its many secret coves and beaches. There is a shop within walking distance for bread etc and the large supermarkets are only 10 minutes away. The villa is very well equipped and the hosts responded within minutes of any queries. We were two families travellling together with children ranging from 7-21! there was enough space for everyone and the kids got their monies worth from the swiming pools and jacuzzi. I would highly recommend this villa and we will be visiting KRK again it is a beautiful unspoilt island and will most certainly use this villa again. Both Ivica and Sandra (the hosts) made it feel like home from home - we was sad to leave!
