It's a lovely place with a couple of bars and restaurants. There's also a couple of small supermarkets, a bakery and every morning a few stalls selling local veg and fruit, making self catering very easy. We did both the boat trips on offer (although had to abandon the trip to the waterfalls as it was too windy). It's a good way to see a bit more of the coast. There were plenty of places nearby to visit. Sibenik was about 15 minutes away - although be careful of traffic at the weekend. Trogir was a bit further - an hour's drive and is very pretty but our favourite place was Primosten which was about 40 mins away. We found a gorgeous restaurant right on the water and had the best icecream in the little square. Krka National Park is easy to get to and worth a visit although very busy - go early in the morning or later in the afternoon to miss the crowds. We really enjoyed staying in Zaton and exploring the area but the house definitely made the holiday - we loved it.
