New Home in Serene Village-Vineyards Views-Central To All Attractions-Highway

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,399 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + pull out sofa in livingroom, 2 bathrooms, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located in the quaint village of Zemunik Gornji, our family home is perfectly situated for those looking for a peaceful retreat with easy access to Zadar City Centre, Dalmatia's famous beaches, islands and quick routes to the mountain of Velebit and surrounding coast.

Our home is ideal for families or groups: 130m2, an open concept with large windows and a high cathedral ceiling with exposed beams throughout, give the house a bright and airy feel. A large, new and fully equipped Italian-design kitchen opens out to a 13m x 3m front porch for dinning outdoors. The living space is large and open with a comfortable L-shaped sofa that pulls out into a bed to accomodate additional guests.

The master bedroom with queen-size bed has an ensuite bathroom with a spacious shower for two. The two bedrooms each have two single beds, which can be easily combined for couples if desired. The bright main bathroom is fully equipped with a shower and laundry facilities. There is plenty of closet space providing comfort for extended stays.

Parking is available for up to 4 cars if needed. Around the corner are basketball, soccer and bocce courts for community use. Children will never be bored as the village is a perfect place to frolick. The house looks out onto olive groves and vineyards with panoramic views of the countryside. It is great for those wanting the peaceful and removed experience of rural life (surrounded by the sounds of roosters and turkeys that come with it!), while remaining so close to the beautiful beaches and attractions the coast has to offer.

Located 5km from Zadar Airport just off of the International Expressway, it is less than 15km from the ancient city of Zadar offering dining, museums, theatre and architectural highlights, old and new, such as the spectacular Sea Organs and Greeting to the Sun. Zadar has a vibrant cafe culture and nightlife and is a main port for ferry departures to surrounding islands, such as the famous islands of the National Park Kornati.

About Zadar:


For beach bums and those who wish to fully enjoy the remarkably clean and warm Adriatic Sea, our home is only 8km from Sukosan beach with Zaton beach and the therapeutic mud beach of Nin nearby.

The Dalmatian Riviera is renowned for its beauty and offers sailing, diving, kiteboarding or whatever water sport the adventurous traveller might desire. The island of Pag and its pristine beach, Zrce, are home to a wakeboard park, nightclubs and world-renowned summer music festivals.

For hiking and climbing enthusiasts, our home is roughly 30km from the mountain of Velebit and Paklenica National Park. It is less than an hour to the waterfalls of Slapovi Krke and touring the famous UNESCO World Heritage site of Plitvice Lakes.

Have any questions? I am happy to help you plan excursions and provide any information to make your stay as easy, comfortable and memorable as possible.

Croatia is truly a treasure and we welcome you to our home!

About Nicole and Carol

Dobro Dosli! My name is Nicole. I am Canadian-born while also a Croatian citizen, lucky to have lived a part of my life on the Mediterranean. I am therefore very familiar with the area, having travelled the region myself as a tourist as well as having lived there as a resident. I was employed in the hospitality industry for years and recently completed studies in Earth Science & Environmental Management. I am passionate about design and a traveller myself. I am so happy with how our new home has come together I wish to share it with fellow global citizens, as I feel it really offers an authentic experience of Croatia.

Why Nicole and Carol chose Zemunik Gornji

Our property on the Dalmatian coast has been in my family for generations. It is where my father grew up, although it has changed significantly over the years. This new house was completed in 2008, built by the hands of the community with local materials of high quality. It stands in place of a centuries old home, devastatingly destroyed in the war. A part of the old house still remains as a small apartment separating our house from an adjoined home built by close relatives next door. Both properties are vacant throughout most of the year. While family may vacation here occasionally, it is a shame that this beautiful home is often empty, therefore, our wish for visitors to come and enjoy a little piece of our paradise ...

Exellent home in the countrside

  • 5 of 5

First of all: we ( a family of 3) enjoyed our stay very much... The house was like in the description and the pictures of it are true. Everything was clean. It is well equipped from linen and towels to kitchen devices. The kitchen has almost everything you might have at home and need for a vacation. The beds are comfortable and spacious; there are enough hangers in every wardrobe. The washing machine works well.

The surrounding is quiet. Now and then a car passes by. And that's about it. The very old grandmother of the family lives right beside the house you rent. Sometimes family members come to visit and help her; she cares for the chicken and turkeys that live on the ground there (they are not loud and did not disturbe us). For us it was totally ok and we tried our best to talk with hands and feet (a German expression) to everyone. The house is near an interstate and the airport but you are not disturbed in the peace and quiet. You have easy access to go to Zadar and other places real quick.

The communication with the owner was first rate from the beginning (payment, description etc.). In Croatia there is a young woman ( a relative) called Ana who speaks exellent English to help you with everything.- We enjoyed very much talking to you, Ana.- She provides the key and meets you there.

We would recommend the house to friends; just be sure you don't mind driving 15-30 minutes to the beach or to town (Zadar, which is a beatiful city). One definitly needs a car. But if you enjoy a quiet surrounding, a morning coffee on the patio watching the swallows in the sky then this is the place for you.

During the last years we spent all of our summer vacations in rental homes (Spain, France etc.) but this house was definitely the best.

-If you are going to visit Krka and Plitvice lakes: better go there in the afternoon; we went in the morning and had to wait over an hour for tickets. When we left each place in the afternoon there were no lines at the ticket booths. They don't close before 7 during peak season.

We liked the beaches of Nin (sand), Petrcane and Sukosan for swimming and snorkeling. We enjoyed the old town of Sibenik and Zadar itself, of course.

Perfecta ubicación para visitar con coche gran parte de la Dalmacia Croata. A pocos minutos de la autopista principal y de la preciosa ciudad de Zadar.

Ambiente rural muy tranquilo entre animales domésticos. El apartamento, construido recientemente, es estupendo, fresco, muy amplio, limpio y con todas las comodidades para 6 personas. Diseño actural y amueblado con muy buen criterio, tiene techos altos, tres habitaciones,dos servicios y una hermosa terraza con barbacoa donde pasar las tardes.

La relación calidad-precio es realmente buena.

La atención, tanto de la propietaria como de su familia, es extremadamente amable, atenta y solícita a cualquier idea, sugerencia, problema o recomendación.

Durante una semana nos hemos sentido muy cómodos y bien atendidos y hemos podido descansar de las jornadas de visitas a los parques naturales, ciudades e islas de Croacia (muy recomendables y posiblemente más en primavera o septiembre).

The best attention. A perfect apartment in a good place for visit Croacia.

Thanks to Nicola, Ana and family.

Mooi ruim huis in een rustige omgeving nabij uitvalswegen.

  • 5 of 5

Het huis voldeed aan alle verwachtingen. De Viduka-familie doet er alles aan om je verblijf zo comfortabel mogelijk te maken. De omgeving is heel rustig maar ligt nabij uitvalswegen waardoor er veel mogelijkheden zijn om allerlei interessante dagtochten te maken of een dagje naar het strand te gaan. Zeker aan te bevelen.
