About Mirjana

We are a family that recently moved to Croatia from Canada.

Why Mirjana chose Gdinj

Our family has roots on the island for generations. We like the island for its unspoiled and natural ambiance. We are surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and fruit trees. Torac Bay is a beautiful bay on the South side of Hvar island with a beautiful pebble beach. It offers peace and quiet and a getaway from the daily grind and city life. The sea is crystal clear and soothes the soul. In our home and apartments we wanted to preserve the environment while still having a comfortable life. We are completely off the grid. We have solar electricity and water is either collected from rainwater or trucked in.

What makes this apartment unique

What a wonder it is to wake up every morning with a gorgeous view of the sea. The area is very quiet so you can listen to the waves and crickets. The view of the stars is spectacular.

Unlike other homes and apartments in the area we provide year round accommodation.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Das Apartment liegt in einem richtig ruhigen Ort, ideal zum entspannen! Das Zimmer war sehr sauber und modern eingerichtet und stach somit wie wir fanden aus der Masse heraus.

In der kleinen Bucht gibt es nur ein paar Häuser, das heisst am Abend hört man nur die Grillen und das Meer :-)

Ein wunderschöner Blick von der Dachterrasse, ein Grill vor der Haustür, ein paar Stufen und man ist am Meer...perfekt! Im Ort gab es auch ein Lokal wo wir sehr gut gegessen haben, sonst haben wir uns selbst versorgt.

Mit dem Auto ist man nach ein paar Höhenmetern in einem sehr kleinem Ort, wo man Lebensmittel kaufen kann, in 20 Minuten erreicht man Jelsa, da gibt es auch einen Supermarkt mit deutlich mehr Auswahl.

Mit dem Auto ist es sehr einfach die wunderschöne Insel zu erkunden und sich die Städte anzusehen. Der Ausblick beim fahren kann man am besten als Beifahrer genießen, weil die Straßen ab und zu etwas enger sind ;-)

Der Manager war sehr nett und zuvorkommend und immer erreichbar.

Wir würden sofort wieder hier Urlaub machen!

Wenn man es etwas ruhiger mag, sich selbst versorgen und auch mal ohne Allinclusive die Seele baumeln lassen will, ist man hier genau richtig!

Sehr sauber, alles ganz neu. Wirklich sehr schönes Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Für alle die einfach nur Ruhe haben wollen ist das echt empfehlenswert. Sehr abgelegen und ruhig. Wenn man einkaufen möchte oder eine Stadtbesichtigung dann muss man gute 50 km zur nächsten Stadt fahren. Aber es lohnt sich alles in allem.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The nearest town (Jelsa) is 30 km but it may seem longer due to the winding road. We hope to see you again.
