It's located about 30 mins walk from the middle of Starigrad. There are small supermarkets within 10 minutes. It is very quiet, no roads or bars within earshot. The garden runs in terraces down to the little jetty. There is also a tiny gravel beach. Lots of deck chairs for use. The highlight is the bar next to the sea which Mirko runs as a self-service bar - just write down what you use and settle up at the end. Mirko would join us most evenings (football World Cup was on). The atmosphere was wonderfully relaxed and friendly. I would highly recommend as a holiday destination for a couple or young/small family.

There are many new upgrades and very comfortable beds! The owners were exceptionally helpful with recommendations. We loved the private boat cruise down a river they suggested. Wish we had stayed longer.
