Fisherman House on Murter:

The boat house, an unusual stone house in country house style.

This house of a former boat builder is unusual in many ways. Very untypical for stone houses in the protected areas of the old towns of Dalmatia, it is characterized by almost three meters high ceilings. The large, partly up to one hundred years old and elaborately renovated windows flood the rooms with lots of light. Their elaborate design reminds of the Jugendstil period, as we know from our old buildings in Western Europe. At the end of a row of old town houses, it seems almost to be detached. With its large garden it appears airy and bright. Due to the location on the edge of the old town center, it is one of the few original stone houses, which can be reached by car and offer a parking space directly in front of the door. You are able to reach the property via a narrow alley that can be driven by car. Through the wooden gate, in a natural stone wall, you enter the garden. The house welcomes you with its first terrace, equipped with a dining table for six persons, which seems to exude the aroma of coffee and fresh bread rolls. The elaborately decorated garden, planted with olives, lavender and rosemary, provides a Mediterranean welcome, sun beds invite you to feel comfortable. Next to the house, in front of the former stable buildings, is the second terrace. Another large dining area attracts to rest, especially in the early evening hours, as the sun sinks behind the property walls, which give pleasant shade on hot days.

If you enter the house now on the ground floor, you enter the dining room with its large table, where the inhabitants of the house can easily find space. Also the fully equipped kitchen is here. In the rear part of the large room, separated by a partitioning semi-high wall, is the living room, with large corner sofa, armchair and TV. This also provides cozy evening hours in the house. Both areas can, of course, be heated and cooled, as are the bedrooms, with air conditioning. Next to the living rooms, the first bedroom with a large bed, which is built like a alcove, and radiates comfort and protection. Nextdoor the bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. Across the old wooden stairs you enter the upper floor with its almost ten meters long corridor. The newly renovated parquet recalls the beneficial times of the builder, at the beginning of the 20th century. Upstairs you will find a very spacious bathroom and two bedrooms each with a double bed, naturally also air-conditioned. Looking out of the window of the corridor, the view swipes over the gardens of Betina, the sea between Murter and the mainland, and the mountains of the Velebit behind them. Who likes leaves the house now across the door on the first floor. Here you will find a small balcony and you will return to the garden by the outside staircase.

All the rooms of the property are harmonious and lovingly furnished with antique furniture in country house style and impress with their bright, friendly atmosphere. Dishwasher and washing machine complete the comfort. After only a few steps through the beautiful old town alleys of Betina you reach the elaborately and lovingly restored market square in the center of the small town. There are numerous cafes, restaurants and the harbour with its numerous historical wooden boats, which remind us of the long tradition of shipbuilding in Betina. The nearest bathing spot in the town center is only about 200m away, a small sea bath and a pebbly beach are about 400m away and are easy to reach, even with children, by feet. In the house you have internet via Wlan.

The pearls of the Adriatic, Sibenik, Zadar, Split and Trogir and the national parks Krka and Kornati invite to day trips.

We look forward to see you in Dalmatia!

About Steffen Haack

In our shop in Hamburg we got more than ten years of experience by renovate and design antique unicums in countrystyle. This experience we , beginning in 2010, transformed on typical Dalmatian stone houses and holiday homes to feel comfortable in. Our goal was to protect the unique character of historic houses and to connect it with the comfort of today.

schöne Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns sehr im Bootshaus in Betina wohl gefühlt. Es liegt fußläufig sowohl zu Betina, dessen kleiner Altstadt und dem Stadtstrand, als auch Murter. Das Haus ist durchdacht und geschmackvoll eingerichtet - das gilt für Küche, Wohn- und Schlafbereich und auch den Außenbereich. Zwei kleine Supermärkte und ein täglich stattfindender Marktstand mit Obst, Gemüse, etwas Käse und dalmat. Schinken sind um die Ecke. Wir haben die Tipps der Hausbesitzer für verschiedene Strände genutzt und genossen.

Traumhaftes Haus mit 1000% Wohlfühleffekt!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten als Familie mit 2 kleinen Kinder 3 Wochen im Bootshaus ....und es war einfach nur wunderschön.

Man fühlte sich sofort wohl und man dachte im ersten Moment „ hier will ich einziehen“!

Es war alles so schön, stilvoll und harmonisch ausgestattet...wie in einer Zeitschrift von „schöner Wohnen“!

Durch das tolle Ambiente fühlte man sich sofort angekommen und im Urlaub!

Kurze Wege in die Alstadt von Betina, sowie Murtet...tolle Restaurants, Café‘s und Konoba‘s.

Traumstrände liegen wenige Autominuten vor der Tür...jederzeit weiter zu empfehlen!

Ein wunderbares Feriendomizil, absolut empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Vom 31.05. - 10.06. waren wir auf der bezaubernden Insel Murter im Ort Betina. Betina bietet alles, was zu einem gelungenen Adriaurlaub gehört. Murter mit seinen vielen Buchten ist toll und das frisch sanierte Bootshaus komplettiert den Urlaub. Wie schön ist hier alt und neu kombiniert. Auch den Garten und den kurzen Weg in den Ort haben wir sehr genossen. Die vorab bekommenen Infos waren hilfreich, der Service freundlich und alles war sehr sauber!

Wir kommen gerne wieder!

The island of Murter impresses by location and form. Only a few meters from the mainland, it is accessible by a drawbridge and still has all the advantages of an island. With its many bays, bathing rocks and beaches, there is a great choice to enjoy the sea. Even in the high season you can always find a sheltered and lonely berth. If the wind and the sea are sometimes stormy on one side, you can turn to the other side and enjoy the calm water there. A number of islands can be explored in the surroundings of Murter, which can be explored with a small rented motorboat even without great knowledge and always provide a wonderful panorama. Due to the proximity of the Kornati, numerous excursion trips start here, often with historic wooden ships.

Murter is situated close to the pearls of Adriatic Zadar, Split, Trogir and Sibenik. The beautiful waterfalls of the Krka river are reached in 45 minutes. Thus, Murter is not only worth a trip to high season. Just from mid-April, when the island is wonderfully green and the plants are in full bloom and after the season until the end of October, when the island calms down, Murter is an experience! Due to its touristiness, all the amenities of the daily needs are available, numerous restaurants and cafes are waiting to be tested.
