Fantastic villa in a great location

5 of 5
We spent 2 fantastic weeks here. The villa was spotlessly clean and immaculate. Very well furnished and equipped with everything that we could've wished for. Natalija had arranged our pick up from the airport which all went smoothly and around 40 minutes later we were at the villa. We were welcomed by the owner and her family with a lovely buffet meal of delicious local food which had been prepared for our arrival. A great start to our holiday! The villa is located just a few metres from the sandy beach and crystal clear waters but we often just lazed round the pool instead due to the higher than usual temperatures during our stay. The kids had a great time in the pool and in the games room and the villa was equipped with everything to keep the adults occupied as well. There were sufficient sun beds and various seating and eating options around the pool and we enjoyed many a happy family BBQ in the evening, taking in the magnificent views from pretty much every room in the villa as well as from the pool area. There were some great local restaurants for when we felt like going out for a meal and there was a small supermarket only a couple of minutes walk. A greater range of shopping, tours and restaurants/bars could be found a shortish walk away in Omis. Every member of the family had a great time and we are all looking forward to our next stay there. We would strongly recommend Villa Paradise to anyone thinking of staying along the Dalmation coast. Thanks for everything Natalija!

Great place.

5 of 5
We were a family group of 5. Darko, the owner, arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and a welcome hamper was left in the fridge on our arrival. Only 50m from the lovely beach and quiet open air bar. Sun loungers were available to use. There is a bakery and small supermarket just over the road and really convenient. The road gets busy in the Summer during rush hour but cars are very generous at stopping allowing you to cross. Over the road and only a few minutes walk towards Split is a bus stop which takes you right into the middle of Split for 10Ku each. Either number 60 or a Dalmatic bus. On return you need to buy a ticket in advance from the bus kiosk, which is by t.he green market. Apartment very comfortable, great views. Darko very welcoming and able to give lots of advice on where to eat. Air con got a bit fiddly to use. Otherwise really great place and location. Darko arranged a taxi to take us to Trogir to do an all day boat trip, which I would recommend. It included a visit to 3 islands, lunch and stops for a swim. Darko a really nice guy, great place. If we return we would consider going back to this place for sure.
