Absolutely beautiful, clean and huge.

5 of 5
This property is absolutely stunning, immaculate and so spacious. The pool is huge, with a water fall feature and lights inside the pool that changes colours. The photos on this website do not do the villa justice, it was just so luxurious! I would go back to this villa every year if I could! The landlord is very helpful and friendly. The wood fired BBQ is great, there is lots of different places inside and out to relax. The bedrooms are very nice and quiet, the bathrooms are gorgeous. The views from every balcony are incredible! There's lots of lovely places to walk near the villa, the sea front is 5 minutes away, there's a small supermarket 2 minutes away and another 2 that are 5 minutes away. The sea near this villa is crystal clear and there are so many fish in the water. This villa is placed perfectly as there are clubs, bars, food etc placed so near yet the villa is very quiet and out of the way. We were discussing coming back again before we left! Would 110% recommend this villa!

A beautiful villa with stunning views and great hosts

5 of 5
The villa was gorgeous and just as good as it looks in the photos. It was immaculately presented and well equipped and the views in all directions were stunning. WiFi signal was good as was mobile on both O2 and Vodafone. The TV only had local channels but also had Netflix and YouTube. The local towns and villages were beautiful, though on some steep slopes. We had a car which made it easy to get around, though parking was sometimes limited and relatively expensive and you need plenty of local coinage. Dubrovnik and Split are worth visiting and Krka National Park is beautiful. Closer to home Makarska is nice for a wander and we particularly liked Brela. We needed gluten free food and the Kaufland supermarket on the far side of town had a reasonable selection.
