Apartment was everything we could have asked for, clean, spacious, huge balcony and an almost private beach on the doorstep for us. The apartment is about 200 yards from the local harbour, so easy enough for a short walk to shops and restaurants, which was good as we didn't have a car (really no need for a car here, unless you want to travel further afield). Mislav was a fantastic host, and nothing was too much trouble for him, from blowing up water toys to dropping us at the ferry terminal. Always on hand if need be, but did not intrude on our privacy in any way. Thanks for a great week!

The apartment was much better equipped than we thought, with dishwasher, hair dryer, different kinds of coffee machines etc. Air-conditioning worked well and was really needful during the hot summer time. The apartment was well located with a short walking distance to the pedestrian zone with nice restaurants and bars, the lovely old town and Riva was also easy to reach by walking. The good beaches like Bacvice are quite far away so if you are looking for a beach holiday, this might not be the ideal location.
