About Sanja Sinovcic
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! Yours sincerely, Sanja Sinovcic

Incredible villa in perfect location, ideal for large groups with 5 star service from owners.
We just spent a memorable week at Villa Gumonca with my family and 4 other families all with kids under the age of 6.
The Villa itself is perfect for large groups and couldn't be more beautiful inside and out. It is equipped with anything and everything you could think of from high chairs, ample deck chairs, laundry equipment etc etc. Just think 5 * hotel and you are on the right track. Every room is like a separate apartment with outdoor living space, lots of room and a separate bathroom. The BBQ and main outdoor eating area is incredible with the pool and many decks being even better than the pictures in real life with sunset views that cannot be forgotten.
Only topping the Villa is its location. A short private boat from the airport (45 min - I highly recommend Tamaris Charters) and you arrive at quiet and beautiful Mirca with the Villa just back from the beach with a full working farm plot where you are invited to pick fresh produce to prepare at the house. The water in the mornings is so still and glassy that I will remember my morning swims for a long time to come. The villa is close to Supertar and other nice port towns like Sultivan which we enjoyed.The beach is never busy and at night all you can hear is the conversation flowing after a few bottles of the great local wine!
Only topping the villa and the location was the service provide by Sanja, the property manager. From my 1000 emails pre arrival to our numerous and strange requests during the stay, nothing was a problem and she would always respond fast and with a smile. The service is the real wow factor of staying here. From a car driving your luggage the short distance to the villa, to the delicious fig pie greeting us on arrival to the amazing catered feasts we enjoyed a couple of times on the island, Sanja is to be congratulated for making this trip so memorable for my family and the other families who travelled from different parts of the world to enjoy a special week in Croatia.
Everyone agreed that this was one of the best holidays they had ever had so thanks again!
Thank you so much for this nice review and for all your kind words. It was really my pleasure to help you have great and memorable holidays in my villa!
All the best to your family and friends and hope to see you again one day in Mirca!
Beautiful seaside village enclave
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.
Thank you so much for the review! I am so happy you have enjoyed so much here. I look forward to seeing you and your beautiful family again! Many regards from Mirca, Sanja
The most incredible place I have stayed.
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!
Thank you so much for your review! I am so glad all of you had good times here and it was my pleasure to meet you. My family and our gardener all really enjoyed in your appreciation for our vegetables garden, as we love it ourselves and put a lot of care in it. I would be very glad to see you again!
Beautiful villa in a quiet, little village
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.
Hi! Thank you so much for your nice review! I am so glad you liked the villa. Yes, I finally got the faster internet connection after many months of requesting it, and I am so sorry it was only after you left. Next time will be much faster! Many regards from Brac to you and the whole group! Sanja
Fantastic house, and service!
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!
Hi! Thank you so much for the nice review! I hope O. is feeling good now. Warmest regards from Brac to you and all the families! Sanja
Beautiful villa and excellent host
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.
Dear James, thank you very much for this very kind words! I am so glad you had nice time in Villa Gumonca. We are always very careful to give our service exactly as we market it. Also, when I explain or recommend something to my potential guests, I try to be as objective as possible, because it is most important for us to have just happy people in our villas!
I must proudly say, nobody has yet been disappointed when entered Gumonca...
Regards from Brac, Sanja
P.S. Shame that the local restaurant stopped serving food so early this year! Hopefully they'll open the kitchen early in spring. Anyway, restaurants in Supetar and other nearby places are very good option, many are opened whole year round, plus we also offer good chef service in the villa...
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 in summer are only some 100 meters on foot from the villa and there is another great restaurant 2 km from the villa outside of the village in olive grow opened in low season as well. Other great restaurants in the surroundings our villa manager can recommend and they are all between 5 and 15 minutes drive by car or taxi. Nearest grocery shop is also within the walking distance, 900 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!
