Hi! My name is Sanja and together with my family I own and run three holiday villas in the charming seaside village of Mirca on the island Brac: Villa Gumonca (6 bedrooms), Villa Mirca (7 bedrooms) and Villa Maruka (3 bedrooms). We have been working in tourism and hospitality for many years, but most importantly, island of Brac is our home and we are passionate about sharing our love for it with our guests and friends. After some years of living in big city, I now live full time in Mirca and will be happy to share my firsthand local knowledge with you! If you choose our Villa Gumonca for your vacation with family or friends, I will be there to welcome you and help you discover the best of our island, recommend my favorite restaurants and local food, things to see in the area and experiences you should not miss. I am dedicated to making your time spent here the most memorable.
I look forward to meeting you in Mirca!
"We spent one week at Villa Gumonca and were very impressed. The kitchen was very well equipped with everything you could need - garlic press included! (often missing in holiday lets). The manager Sanja was so helpful arranging bike hire,taxis and a lovely vineyard tour for us. Nothing was too much trouble. We really enjoyed the complimentary olive oil and we were encouraged to eat all we could pick from the large gardens - fresh figs,grapes and tomatoes were especially good. Very close to a clean beach and a friendly little restaurant"...... reviewed on TripAdvisor
As good as the pictures, modern well-provisioned villa, extremely dedicated host, lots of own fruit and vegetables, great cycling on the island, Brac in the Adriatic is some the clearest warmest water in the world.
We could not have asked for a better holiday. Everything was perfect. A group of 11 of us stayed in the villa and each one of us was totally in awe of the villa, it has absolutely everything you need from the beautiful terrace with sea views to the large outdoor dining area and the garden path to the clear sea. There was really no need to leave as we could even pick fruit and veg from the gardens. Sanja was so helpful with everything and made our stay memorable. I highly recommend and cannot wait to go back myself!
The pictures do not do the villa justice, as it was much more spacious than we initially imagined. We were a group of nine and we had the maximum amount of comfort. A cozy little beach is right in front of the villa (20m away), and we had no need to search for other ones.
The villa was clean and well maintained by the inconspicuous staff (cleaning personnel, gardener as well as the pool serviceman). Sanja was always close-by to the villa and helpful in any and all issues, from daily villa issues (fridge broke, was fixed fast) to taking our whole group to experience the night-life in Supetar. We warmly recommend the villa to any group wanting a comfortable retreat, away from city noise.
The only complaint we had was the slow internet connection at the villa, which was not Sanja's fault, but the fault of the internet service provider. Sanja was aware of the problem and she informed us after our trip that the connection speed was finally increased by the provider.
We were 3 families staing at the house, with a total of 5 kids, ranging from 1-8 years old. The kids had a fantastic time at the hous. Lots of space, great pool, and a fantastic view. Everything about the house was great. It was clean, nice kitchen area, lots of bedrooms, and our host was very proactive and helpful. Our host helped us with everything, and even joined us the the emergency room when one of the kids were sick.
We had a great stay! We highly recommend a stay in this villa!
We had a fantastic stay here. The villa was perfect, 5 excellent bedrooms and bathrooms and a very good kitchen. The outside space was also perfect, just as it looks in the pictures.
The location is wonderful, just metres from the beach. We had hour of fun swimming in the sea and jumping off the jetty.
Sanja was a excellent host. She arranged luxury transfers for us at a low cost and was there to greet us when we arrived. Anything else we wanted, she sorted quickly and easily, like hiring bicycles which were delivered to the villa, and picked up the next day.
The local area is very small, a shop 10 minutes walk away for basic supplies and a restaurant and bar. The restaurant did fantastic pizzas (1 min walk away) but stopped serving on the Thursday because of the end of season (September 21st). That wasn't a problem, we were happy to eat in every day after that, or take a 10 minute taxi to the Town of Supetar with numerous restaurants.
I would highly recommend this villa for a group of friends (We were 5 couples, aged 28-40) or just a couple with a larger budget. Everything is exactly as it seems on the details. Although it often looked too good to be true on the details, it really is like that.
And the weather in September was still very hot, perfect for sitting by the pool all day.
We stayed at the end of Aug 2010. 4 adults and 4 kids. The villa is fantastic. A beautiful view and a modern and pleasant decor. Sanja is an amazing host. You can totally relax and enjoy a great vacation even without ever leaving the villa. The dining in the villa (organized by Sanja at a small premium) is probably the best you can find in the island (we tried a few restaurant and then decided to dine always in the villa).
I personally didn't enjoy Brac that much (cold sea water, weather not particularly pleasant, no sand beaches, average food quality and cheap wine/beer) but if you don't mind these small drawbacks (quite common in Croatia) then this IS THE PLACE to STAY.
Villa Gumonca is situated just few meters form the beach in the village Mirca, 3km west from Supetar, which is the port for ferries connecting the island Brac with the biggest Dalmatian town Split. The ferries go often and the journey takes 50 minutes.
The villa is handily place for exploring the island of Brac and its charming seaside towns or traditional inland villages, hidden historic treasures, beautiful beaches and the unspoiled nature. One can also take the ferry back to Split for one day shopping and sightseeing in the Split old town formed in the magnificent Diocletian palace, 1700 years old unique Roman palace which is still today alive and lively.
If you just want to relax in your villa, in our village Mirca one can find all the necessities, without needing to go anywhere else. The nearest restaurant and a coffee bar are only some 100 meters on foot from the villa, but there are also other great restaurants which our villa manager can recommend and they are all between 5 and 15 minutes drive by car or a taxi. Nearest grocery shop is also within the walking distance, 800 meters from the villa. Bigger supermarkets, souvenir shops, green and fish market, pharmacy, hospital, bank, ATM, gas station, cocktail bars and night bars, all can be found in the town of Supetar, just 5 minutes away driving from Villa Gumonca by car or taxi, or 30 minutes of easy walking on a path.
The villa is situated first row by the sea. It has a direct access to a pretty pebble beach, main beach in Mirca. The short garden path leading to the beach passes between a small vineyard and a garden featuring organic fruit, vegetables and a variety of Mediterranean herbs and spices. The villa guests can help themselves with e.g. some organic tomatoes for salads or mint leaves for cocktails whenever they like. It is like your own PRIVATE GREEN MARKET!
