We loved the view of the moutain from the pool, the sound of the cicadas and the birds, the comfy beds and the beautiful views of the Adriatic. We would recommend this villa to anyone in search of some peace and quiet, in a very well designed and comfortable home. Thank you for a great week in Mararska!

Ahead of arriving the owners had already agreed to an early arrival great start. The villa is absolutely stunning all mod cons, immaculately clean and lots of nice touches like shower gel and shampoo in luxury bathroom. Branko gave us a lovely warm welcome and was keen to recommend lots to do. The major selling points are the fabulous infinity pool heated up to be lovely and warm and the stunning view of the islands. The view from the rooftop terrace is stunning and we enjoyed many beautiful sunsets with a cold beer. Makarska is really beautiful with lots to do bring jelly shoes as it is rocky but the sea is so clear you can see the fish. Lots of lovely restaurants and a bustling port too. All in all a fabulous holiday. Would definitely 'recommend the villa it's beautiful and Branko went out of his way to accommodate us. Thankyou.
