Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Sibenik-Knin - Villa By The Sea, Oleandra

3 bedrooms with king size beds, 3 full size bathrooms, sleeps 6 adults, 2 kids

Villa By The Sea, Oleandra, the perfect jumping off point to all the beautiful islands, is ideally situated between the fabulous, energetic city of Split and the gorgeous, seaside town of Trogir. This unique, spacious, light-filled residence has panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea, the seven Kastela, Split, and Ciovo, with a stone stairway allowing access to the pebble beach below, where you can sunbath, swim, and sail.

Surrounded by its own gardens of oleander, lavender, rosemary, fig and olive trees, this luxurious yet minimalist 3-bedroom villa is truly a retreat for those looking to get away from it all.

The house is behind its own charming gate, with a large car port. The enormous wraparound, covered terrace, is ideal for al fresco dining or just relaxing while enjoying the sea views. There's a large living/dining room with cathedral ceilings and a fireplace, as well as a fully-equipped, modern kitchen with Bosch appliances.

You will be welcomed at the villa by your host. He can also help organize excursions, cultural and recreational visits, if you so desire.

The location of the house is remote and quiet. There is a little cafe/bar, another beach, and fishing port within walking distance. It is a site for the European Coastal Airline Hydroplane. You can take a trip to Hvar and it only takes 13 minutes and it cost about 40 Euro one way. You can check their Facebook page for more information.

Recommended visits from Villa Oleadra include: Primosten (33km), Krka National Park (50 km), Kornati National Park (Archipelago), Paklenica Park (130km - a paradise for climbers and hikers), Solin/Salona (15 km), Klis (34 km) with its 7th century fortress, and Medugorje (150 km) Catholic pilgrimage. Of course, Split, Trogir, and the often overlooked Seven Kastela are highly recommended.

Why owner Nada I. chose Sibenik-Knin

The villa has one of the best location on the Dalmatian coast, close to both Split and Trogir, it is perfect for hosting events, family vacations, exploring the local culture and sites.

Croatia and the Dalmatian coast is a hot destination and offer over 1200 islands, city centers and vast natural beauty to explore.

The ferry and water taxi are the best way to explore the labyrinth of islands. Schedules are primarily arranged to accommodate the native islanders and run more frequently in the summer months.

The UNESCO designated city of Split is the largest on the Adriatic coast and retains thousands of years of several cultural influences. Gothic cathedrals and Renaissance palaces line the seafront which is the best jumping off point to the neighboring islands.

What makes this villa unique

Villa Oleandra is situated in one of the best locations on the Adriatic coast. The airport is conveniently close, meaning you will reach your destination quickly and without much hassle. Despite the proximity to the airport, it is a quiet haven since the flight path is never overhead. Furthermore, Villa Oleandra is located directly on the beach, therefore if you are seeking a beach-side retreat with easy access, this is a perfect choice for you.

Beautiful house on the sea - great for swimming and visiting the area.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for just under a week in the beginning of August 2015. We were very happy with the overall experience. Although we were a little concerned about the proximity to the airport, in the end this was not an issue and really did not bother us. The view is stunning with the sea underneath the house and a private entrance onto the beach. It was such a real pleasure to swim every morning before our breakfast - with no one to disturb us. The house itself is very well thought out - extremely comfortable and airy. There is one very large and bright living space. There are only three bedrooms, but all to a high standard with modern equipment. There are plenty of areas to sun bathe around the house, and if it gets too hot, the AC in the house works very well. The kitchen is also well equipped and a pleasure to use.

Ideally you would need a car or a scooter - its 4km to Trogir, similar to Kastel, and 18km to Split which is extraordinary and worth a few visits. We liked Kastel as its quite authentic with fewer foreign tourists. Trogir has a good food market and beautiful cathedral and town center. There is a great mix of great sea and historical sites to visit.

We would hope to come back again some time.

Another Great Stay at the Villa by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

The first time we stayed at this property in 2012, we thoroughly loved it and resolved to return again someday. This year, we finally got around to it and enjoyed another great week in this truly singular house. It is spacious, well-kept and well-equipped, provides stunning views and is perfect for a family looking for a base to enjoy and explore the beautiful Croatian coast. Since the house is right on the water, you can access the beach any time while enjoying the privacy and comfort of your own property. It was very warm during our stay, and we appreciated the well-functioning air-conditioning very much.

It should also be noted that the owner was very helpful and accommodating and took great care to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. Also, the local property manager is very pleasant and provided great help.

As long as this property can be rented, it is definitely on our list for a return visit.

Your house is such a beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 14 nights recently and can highly recommend the welcome. Beautiful garden, comfortable terrace, lovely, spotlessly clean, spacious rooms which are nicely decorated with modern furniture. House has everything for our stay with a little girl and our different everyday needs. There are excellent views of Kastela Riviera which is full of interest. Just a 15 min from Trogir (30 min from Split) for an endless choice of historical things, shops, restaurants and bars.

Owner’s hospitality and warmth are top class and we would like to thank Nada for a lovely stay in this beautiful part of the world. Owner and house manager are a wonderful source of information for helping us to enjoy our holiday and nothing is too much trouble for them. We are really thankful.

Could not have been better

  • 5 of 5

Based on the photographs, we were pretty happy about making arrangements to stay in this villa. But when we actually arrived, we saw that everything about the place far exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful, immaculate, wonderful appliances and fixtures, excellent wi-fi connection, and very spacious. We were a family of five adults, and there was plenty of room for all of us to do our own thing. The property feels very private, and is like a jewel dropped right on the edge of the sea. The landscaping is lush and beautiful, and there are many outdoor seating, lounging, and eating areas. And how fabulous is it to have steps right down to the beach? We spent many hours at the beach, examining tide pools, snorkeling, swimming, and just hanging out. The location of the house is remote and quiet, but there is a little cafe/bar, another beach, and fishing port within walking distance. We drove to Trogir most days to pick up fresh produce and fish at the market. One day we drove to Krka National Park and had a nice hike over the waterfalls. And one day we drove to Split. The owner of the property was very responsive right from our first inquiry through our staying there. We highly recommend this property, and are hoping to return some day. There are many other little villages in the area to explore and more sea glass to find on the beach.

The beach was a bit disappointing.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the villa for 2 first weeks of August 2012. After overcoming some issues concerning the cleanliness of the house we and our children (age 2 and 5) had a wonderful time. The location of the villa and the villa itself is beautiful. No issue with the near airport, if anything it was a great attraction for the kids.

The only thing I would point out as quite upsetting was the beach - the beach itself is beautiful it is the surroundings which is letting it down. During our stay the beach was used only by the locals who obviously had no respect to the environment, whatever they ate at the beach, they left behind (bottles, papers). One more thing, cigarettes butts literally everywhere.

Owner's Response: Dear Daniela, As you may know, there are no private beaches in Croatia, and we are trying to take responsibility and teach by example regarding the upkeep of the beach. We are glad that the rest of your stay was positive. Best regards, Nada

Villa Oleandra is ideally situated in Kastela, between Split and Trogir. Split, a stunning city full of ancient masterpieces (one of which is the former summer palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian), is an urban mecca where tourists flock to see ancient ruins and experience a vibrant nightlife and cafe culture. Trogir is a quaint and beautiful seaside town built by the ancient Greeks over two thousand years ago. Both cities are UNESCO heritage sites. The nearest shops and restaurants are in Trogir (a short 5-10 minute drive), where one can find an abundance of restaurants that offer gourmet Dalmatian cuisine. There is also a bustling open fish market and a farmers' market offering organically-grown fruits and vegetables, local cheeses, as well as various pizzas, sandwiches, and baked goods. You truly can't find a more perfect location for this villa. It's close enough to energetic towns where you can sip a leisurely espresso and people-watch, yet it is the perfect refuge if you simply want to spend your time relaxing by the sea, away from it all.

Speaking of 'getting away from it all,' a mere 10 minute walk from the house you'll find Europe's first ever hydroplane service, with a plane taking off five times throughout the day, connecting you to Jelsa, Hvar in 13 minutes for the price of a ferry from downtown Split. Also here is another beach, with two cute cafes, one with gelato that is delivered to them every morning from the best gelato place in Trogir. Enjoy a quick swim or sip a cappuccino while you wait for a hydroplane to take you to one of the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic. This amazing villa has it all.
