                                                                                We had a great holiday at Stari Punat in the summer of 2015. The first thing that drew my attention is that the house looks exactly the same in real life as it does on the photos. The rooms are spacious and well taken care off. Inside there is definitely all you need. Since we were travelling with small children Agata (the owner) provided a foreclosure of the stairways. The building of the house was (I believe) finished early 2015, which means everything is new, modern and built to the latest standards. The house is very well isolated. We didn't even need the airconditioners while it was very warm outside. From the terrace you have a good overview of the swimming pool, children's playground and the rest of the lawn. You can find shade on the terrace any moment of the day (sometimes using a parasol) The house is located in a quiet area. There is a small market just a few minutes (car) drive away. This market is perfect for fresh bread in the morning and small groceries. The bigger supermarkets are located in Pazin which is a 10 to 15 minutes drive. Agata is a friendly and very helpful person. Our conclusion is that we had an unforgettable holiday and we can recommend this house to everybody.
