A slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this cottage. The pool is beautiful and we used it often. The cottage is in a peaceful and scenic location and is well appointed. We enjoyed excellent dinners at Restaurant Kupinica and did day trips to Split, Salona and Trogir. Vinisce Boat rental wasn't ready for the season, so they referred us to a boat and skipper from Trogir. It was an excellent experience. We hope to return.

Total Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a place to stay away from the the “hustle and bustle” of the tourist locations on the Dalmatian coast, cottage Maika caught our attention … and we were not disappointed. Combining a rustic charm with stylish, modern amenities Karin and Dominik set-up a unique place in which we felt home right away. The floor plan provided ample space to accommodate our family of four comfortably. However, our favorite hang-out area was the spacious outdoor living area with its good-sized pool and stunning views. Being located secluded in the hills, the cottage is still in close proximity to Vinisce with its small supermarkets, restaurants and beaches. Major tourist attractions are also easily within reach via car. We can definitely recommend visiting Split, Trogir and the Krka waterfalls. However, our favorite thing after a day of excursions was taking a dip in the pool and seeing the sun set over the bay. Cottage Maika provided a sense of serenity that made this one of the most relaxing vacations we ever had. If you are interested in exploring Dalmatia off the beaten track – this is definitely a place you should consider.

Cottage Maika - the Stone Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family has just returned from 18 days at Cottage Maika in Vinisce, Croatia and I am already dreaming of when I can return. Karin and Dominik have created a beautiful place by renovating three cottages in an old shepherds village. There are ruins of other cottages all around. Cottage Maika is just as it was advertised. The interiors are clean and well appointed with everything you need in the kitchen and very comfortable beds. We spent most of our time while at the cottage outside on the terrace by the pool, which has amazing views of the Adriatic Sea. From the house we walked down to the sea for swims or just took long walks through the olive orchards while taking in the amazing views of the sea and mountains. For much of the time we used Cottage Maika as home base while we toured around the area. We visited Split, Sibenik, Trogir, Primosten, and Krka. All are within one hour or less and well worth visiting. We also rented a boat in Vinisce and had a wonderful day touring the islands. I was always happy to come home each afternoon to Cottage Miaka to cook a seafood dinner. Ingredients were purchased in the markets in Trogir and were as fresh as can be. We occasionally ate in Vinisce where the restaurants were as good as ones we tried in Split and Dubrovnik. Vinisce itself was a lovely throwback to an old American seaside town where families walk along the waterfront in the evenings with ice cream cones after a day swimming or boating. It was a lovely town. All of the people were so nice. I felt that all over Croatia. Thank you to Karin and Dominik for a fabulous vacation. Also thank you to Marino, the wonderful manager, who was ready at any time to help with anything….even how to use the washing machine!! When I go back to Croatia I will definitely be staying in Cottage Maika! I must add that this was my first time renting a cottage through an online site and it was fabulous!

Fabulous house in a stunning part of Croatia

  • 4 of 5

This is a great place to stay if you want to get off the beaten track and discover an uncrowded corner of this beautiful country. We chose this house because we didn't want a long drive from Split Airport. The house is splotlessly clean, modern and very comfortable. It is so well appointed, it's like home! The highlights are the pool area with its dining table and outdoor sofas and also the big comfy beds - with amazing pillows!

We also loved Vinisce village with its excellent restaurants, stunning views and selection of supermarkets. There's also a must-visit ice cream parlour and a nice bakery. The only downside is the very steep walk to the village from the house - with children (9 & 7) it took us 15 mins down, 20 mins up. You must be physically fit and have sensible shoes! You can drive to the village but this takes longer. This did not detract from our enjoyment of this house, we would definitely come again, especially as the owners are so helpful and have thought of everything.

Recent villa builded with high quality material and located in an extremely peaceful place

  • 4 of 5

The villa is located on top of a hill (steep road,not convenient to access) nearby a lovely village. The charming villa, the extremely peaceful area and the beautiful sea view have definitively made the success of our holiday in Croatia.

Two minor critics:

- The swimming pool of the second villa is located just above the terrasse

- It was otten stinking sewers in the bedroom downstairs

Absolut schön!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohlgefühlt, wir hatten aber auch wirklich schöne und heiße Sommertage. Das Auto wurde in dieser Woche nicht bewegt. Da wir unsere Mountainbikes dabeihatten, haben wir immer frühmorgens die nahe Gegend erkundet und so manchen netten Strand gefunden. Den Einkauf erledigten wir dabei auch gleich. Den Rest des Tages verbrachten wir am Haus und haben die Ruhe sehr genossen.

Vinisce is a small quiet fishing town located in a beautiful bay of clear sea and untouched nature, only 12 km from Trogir.

In the surroundings there are several beautiful bays well known for their attractive pebble and sand beaches – Voluja, Ri'evo Vrelo, Stari Trogir, Si'enica. Viniš'e has several markets, restaurants, cafe bars, and a small marine for yachtsmen.

The place has a small ACI marine, restaurants and cafés, and a short drive can get you to the city of Split, the cultural center of Dalmatia. Viniš?e is a place intended first of all for lovers of quiet family vacations in private rooms, apartments, and houses and the destination is suitable for those who wish to have their privacy.

Concerning activities, along with swimming and sunbathing, we can recommend surfing, sport and underwater fishing, and boat excursions. For those who love entertainment and night life, we recommend visiting nearby Trogir, Šibenik, Rogoznica, and Split.
