Exceeded all expectations...highly recommended

5 of 5
We were a group of 10 friends getting together after 15 years and we chose this villa as the base of our 7-day reunion. The villa is well equipped, conveniently located and offers great views...I don't remember anything that we thought was amiss at the villa. The owners were extremely helpful throughout the stay...a note of thanks and a thumbs up to Marco and Goran.

Makarska Villa

5 of 5
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
