Absolutely beautiful, clean and huge.

5 of 5
This property is absolutely stunning, immaculate and so spacious. The pool is huge, with a water fall feature and lights inside the pool that changes colours. The photos on this website do not do the villa justice, it was just so luxurious! I would go back to this villa every year if I could! The landlord is very helpful and friendly. The wood fired BBQ is great, there is lots of different places inside and out to relax. The bedrooms are very nice and quiet, the bathrooms are gorgeous. The views from every balcony are incredible! There's lots of lovely places to walk near the villa, the sea front is 5 minutes away, there's a small supermarket 2 minutes away and another 2 that are 5 minutes away. The sea near this villa is crystal clear and there are so many fish in the water. This villa is placed perfectly as there are clubs, bars, food etc placed so near yet the villa is very quiet and out of the way. We were discussing coming back again before we left! Would 110% recommend this villa!

Wonderful holiday in Makarska

5 of 5
We had a really nice week in Makarska. 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.
