The house is spacious and in a great central location for the village and beach.
The house is comfortable and great for two families because of the way it is laid out, over 4 floors and including 3 living areas and 4 shower/bathrooms. We really appreciated the shady courtyard and coffee machine. Being so close to shops/cafes and the beach made for a very relaxing time. The beach isn’t huge but the water is clear and has a good size swimming area and shelves fairly steeply. My children enjoyed snorkelling.
Great location...very roomy for our group of 8. Quaint authentic accommodations. You will need to buy soap and paper products. Seamless entry and exit. Loved every minute of our time on Vis!!
Beautiful house right by the water. Very clean and well equipped
Not clear whether we could use upstairs terrace or not. Neighbours said it was theirs and not for tourists.
A beautiful house with lots of character, superbly equipped in a perfect location.
We absolutely loved our stay at Milutin and Ivan's house. The location is perfect- right next to one of the nicest beaches in town, and 2 minutes walk to the shops and lovely waterfront promenade. We were a group of 11 and the equipment and facilities easily catered for us all. The new kitchen enabled us to cook whatever we desired with ease, and the courtyard with barbecue and ample seating gave us a beautiful space for some memorable meals. The house is full of charming furniture and feels really homely and spacious. We came to Komiza for the Goulash festival and the location was ideal for it (a 10 minute walk away).
Komiza is such a beautiful town: quiet, peaceful, old.. Full of character and charm - we loved exploring the laberynthine alley ways up and down, with the dozens of sweet cats peeping out from the shade to say hello. Vis island is a real gem too, with some really special beaches, great to explore by scooter, car, or bicycle if your fitter than us! There are many beautiful walks around the island too, with clearly marked footpaths to some breathtaking locations. We'd recommend the trek up to Mount Hum, 1.5 hours from town to the highest point on the island.
The cherry on the cake was the how helpful Milutin was before and during our stay, with his clear communication and kind manner. A window pane was broken during our stay and he was very understanding and reasonable about the incident.
Oh and the little kayak by the beach was great for one person (or two small people) excursions.
We'd be back in a heartbeat- thank you Milutin and Ivan for a wonderful stay!
A Perfect Holiday
Exquisite place in every sense, very kind and welcoming hostess- everything we dreamed of for our holiday. I can't recommend this lovely house, town and Island more highly and can't wait to go back. Thank you to our amazing hostess and everyone involved
it was an old house, very close to the beach - though no view on the sea. very nicely located between the busy harbour with restaurants, cafes and a fish shop (opens at 6.00am!) and a relaxed beach on the other side
Vis is the out most inhabited island of the Adriatic sea, some 50 km from the Croatian coast (2h by a car-ferry from the largest Dalmatian city of Split). Due to its very recent and moderated tourist expansion prioritising natural, architectural and ecosystem preservation Vis is in many tourist magazines designated among the most protected and authentic tourist locations in Europe. In deed the islands land, water, flora and fauna is to an impressive extent kept as it was centuries before. Vis island and Komiza (Komiza has ~2000 permanent settlers) on the other hand offer everything that a modern visitor might need, from reliable road and sea transport, good telecommunications, bank service as a EU member, grocery stores, restaurants, caffees, bakeries, small green market, medical assistance, various sport activities from most popular ones to more demanding sports as sea diving, big game fishing, paragliding, cave exploration, mountain-biking...Komiza is also a yachting port with all modern infrastructural support. The climate on the island is typically Mediterranean with long, hot and dry summers and short and mild winters. Sea temperature permits swimming typically from May to October.
Dominant architectural impression in Komiza is a traditional Adriatic stone house. Thick stone walls give a pleasant isolation and shade inside the houses during long summers and stunning longevity of the whole town core. Most of the accommodation on the island is based on this traditional housing.
Some of the characteristic things that we strongly recommend when in Komiza:
- Beaches just in front of the house and in Komiza are perfectly placed for everyday use (jump in the sea in front of the house before the morning coffee or for the evening splash) but it is also worthwhile visiting some of the unusual beaches around the island, sandy beaches, some hidden, some stone beaches, (if needed car or boat transport can be found in town)
- Blue cave on the Bisevo island
- Some of the traditional or even domestic type restaurants
- Island products like vine, olive oil, salted fish (anchovies)...
- Visit fresh fish market early in the morning, by directly from fishermen and make on the barbecue in our garden.
- Our kayak for two persons is beautiful way to see Komiza from the sea and row around Komiza coast and nearby beaches.
- If you are diving maybe you know for Vis underwater attractions but there are numerous other sport possibilities. Kids who like sports play every afternoon football, basketball and other sports on Komiza sport playground. There are tennis courts, bike roads in the island nature, try very popular Mediterranean type of bowling,
- Big game fishing international competition is an attraction for participants as well as viewers
- Several tourist agencies organize visits on the island or on the smaller surrounding islands excursions related to nature (caves, wine yards, bays), history (antique, middle age or from the modern period), or even one day visit to a very popular Hvar island/town
- You can enjoy open-air cinema in Komiza, including one children movie each day.
- Throughout the year there are a quality cultural happening like concerts, theatre expositions...Visit some of the churches in Komiza.
- Younger visitors like open air, beach café/disco/club with evening concerts, dj-s..
Vis archipelago consists of several smaller islands like Biševo, Sveti Andrija, Jabuka, Brusnik and Palagruža and a number of islets, reefs and rocks. The closest islands to Vis are Hvar (18 km – 1 hour by a ferry), Korčula (33 km) and Lastovo.
On the opposite sides of the island there are two small towns - Vis (founded on the remains of the antique settlement Issa) and Komiža. Vis city with its Renaissance and Baroque palaces, stone houses and churches from 16th and 17th century is a picturesque place. Komiža town is a traditional old stone city and Adriatic's most famous fisherman port. The interior of the island with hills and valleys, vineyards and olive-grows is full of small villages and settlements. The 76 nautical miles long, indented shore it abounds in sandy and pebbly beaches, rocks, sea and mountain caves.
Vis archipelago has been identified as biodiversity hot-spot. The island of Vis is also rich in history, and ancient sites and ruins (Illyrians, Greeks (IV BC) and Romans). Different ceramics artefacts, amphorae, the remains of the therme (I BC) wall remains and mosaics can be seen on site or in the Archaeological museum. Due to Yugoslav Army's presence (up to 1992) Vis was closed for visits of any foreigners. This 50 years long isolation, ironically, helped in keeping the island as one of the most pristine place in the entire Mediterranean.
