Excellent modern and smart villa. Friendly and helpful hosts as well.

5 of 5
Really excellent choice of villa for our group of 6. Only 10 minutes out of Makarska so easy to access beaches, supermarkets etc. Spectacular views from the external seating areas and pool. Hosts were really helpful with great advice. Will definitely think about a return trip.

A lovely house, with lovely owners

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Villa Matariki, and Charlotte and Wanlop were the most gracious and helpful owners. We loved the view of the moutain from the pool, the sound of the cicadas and the birds, the comfy beds and the beautiful views of the Adriatic. We would recommend this villa to anyone in search of some peace and quiet, in a very well designed and comfortable home. Thank you for a great week in Mararska!
