                                                    We loved our stay here. The house is so modern and has everything you could possibly need. The pool is stunning and we thoroughly enjoyed having it. The views are spectacular and Makarska is truly the perfect place to visit. The hosts are so welcoming and were very attentive to our every need. Would recommend this 100%!

                                                    A place to be recommended...

                                                    5 of 5
                                                    After hours spent on the internet looking for our summer holiday I found this place and booked 2 weeks. Even though looking great on the photos I still felt quite anxious during our arrival whether the reality would be corresponding with the pictures. I felt already relieved when entering the courtyard. The house is beautifully decorated and equipped, fantastic swimming pool (our 2 kids absolutely loved it) and most importantly it was very private. Damir and Marina are lovely hosts, always checking whether we had everything we needed. They instructed us where to go, shop, made us dinner etc. We spent most of the days on the beach (possible to walk, however, the way back is quite steep - my 5 year old daughter wasn't very happy about the walk so we drove to the beach) and the late afternoons around the swimming pool having barbecue or in the city. We have been travelling to Croatia for the last 9 years. We had a place we stayed on regular basis for 4 years in a row until it was taken off the rental market. Since then we tried several villas in different parts of Croatia but never found one we would be rushing to book again. However, this time it was different and we will certainly be in touch!!

                                                    Nice holiday

                                                    We are family of 6 person and this is our second time in Makarska. This apartment was all we need for our vacation. It is near city center, well maintained and have nice view. I love terrace and spend lot of time there. It is good value for that price. Enjoy you stay in this apartment!
