                                                              Beautiful new villa in very quiet location. Could not fault this brand new villa, fantastic location in the hills and only a 5 min taxi into the town. Villa decorated to a high standard. We spend lots of time around the pool, using the BBQ for lunch, large supermarket only 500 mtrs away. Charlotte was very helpful and all the questions we fired at her were answered straight away. We will 100% use this villa again when we go back to Croatia. Lee

                                                              stunning property, amazing views ... a true gem

                                                              Being new to Croatia, this felt a bit of a gamble. Would the villa live up to the images and video representation? We had no need for concern. It was everything and so much more! The villa is very well appointed, with a few little extras ... we were absolutely delighted! The villa stands in a large plot with fabulous outdoor dining areas. We were spoilt for choice where to sit and enjoy the view. Mountains on one side and the sea on the other! The owners were fantastic. Very helpful and gave great advice on the local area ... but not intrusive. The supermarket is just a stroll down the hill and the resort of Makarska is 5 minutes by car. We will be going back!!

                                                              Superb accommodation. Immaculately presented. Not a trace of dirt, it felt brand new as if noone had ever stayed there before us. This was exactly what we wanted to arrive to, on holiday. The property was air conditioned, so lovely and cool during the day. The equipment level was high - nothing had been compromised on; it was all good quality. For example there were plenty of decent saucepans, utensils, glasses and we didn't run out of plates or cutlery. Plenty of towels and kitchen linen, and thoughfully they have provided things like washing up liquid, washing powder, handsoap and toilet rolls. Excellent wine to sample! Everything worked, nothing leaked, nothing was broken. The bathrooms were impeccable, and of a high specification. The gardens were beautifully maintained (lovely plants, clean patio stones), the pool was warm and the garden furniture was well presented and of good quality. Overall this felt like a luxury holiday rental. Marco and family were very friendly and easy to deal with, and so helpful. They really care about the holiday-makers and making sure that everything is maintained to a high standard. The met us on arrival as planned. They checked on the property regularly, so there would never be a problem. There was a supermarket within 5 minutes walk - which had a good range of all food and goods. It was possible to walk to the town, by weaving through the roads though it may be difficult with small children. Marco can arrange for a taxi at a reasonable cost. It was also possible to go to small bars, in walking distance (25 minutes walk). The villa is set back from the main town in a safe, quiet hilly area. It has views of Makarska bay and behind the mountains (which are spectacular). The properties are gated and feel very secure and have safe, easy parking. We would definitely like to return or recommend this (and their other) property. Thank you, Marco.
