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.

This apartment was just perfect - super view over the downtown to the sea from both livingroom balcony and from rooftop terrace. It was very tidy, beautifully decorated and the kitchen is really well equipped. It was also very convenient to have two separate bathrooms. We arrived with car from Split airport and it was great to use the garage. There are lots of bakerys (pekara) and stores nearby and it's easy to go around by foot. There are beautiful beaches in Makarska, the sea is so amazingly clear. We got a lot of tips and advice from Admir before we arrived. We can highly recommend this apartment and we'll definitely want to come back one day. This was our first visit to Croatia and we all fell completely in love with this beautiful country.
