If you are looking to spend your vacation facing the sea, on the quiet and piecefull place, this could be the right place for you!

Located in the shadow of pine trees and the scent of lavander, Leisure is situated on the beach shore, away from any traffic and noise. Surrounded by a 450 m² of lush Mediterranean garden and located in the south part of Ciovo, in the bay of Mavarstica.

Far away from any pollution, the seaside free standing house lies few meters from the pebble beaches and it is a ideal place for spending relaxing and recreating holidays.

On the first floor there is a large living room, two bedrooms, bathroom and terrace 20 m². The rooms on the second floor allow quiet moments even for numerous families. The kitchen is new and fully equipped. The furniture is modern and comfortable, but since the owners have the house for more than 50 years it also has a touch of antique and cosy feeling. In the dining/living room there is a sofa bed and seating for 8 people. The living room on the first floor accommodates 6 people and it has a TV, an extra bed and a breakfast table for 4 people with kitchenette. On the ground floor terrace there is a large table for 8 people, and a barbecue in the shade of pine trees.

In the evenings you can enjoy the stillness and quietness with just a gentle sound of waves and cricets, or refresh yourself before bedtime in the night swimm sourranded by flashing of planktons...

Private, quiet - but near town.

  • 5 of 5

Yes, everything was clean, well-maintained, and the info is accurate. The house is in a lovely location, easy to walk to a small town - with grocery store, pizzeria, cafes. It's easy to get to the mainland, so it has the advantages of being on an island without the disadvantages. There's a ferry to Split, or it's an easy drive. Trogir is beautiful - Split, too. Unfortunately, we had lots of rain and wind during our stay, but the house is right in front of the beach, (pebble) and you can walk easily along the coast. The roads in the settlement are tiny - beware!

We loved having the house and garden to ourselves. It's quiet, and private, and sunsets and sunrises on the patio are beautiful. Very peaceful - nicer (I think) than any place else we saw along the coast! The stone building is a little more historical than much of the new construction, but with all conveniences. And Srdjana is very nice - we would have enjoyed spending more time with her!

Wonderful family vacation by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this wonderful property with our family. The house is exactly as described in text and photos. The thing we liked the most is the feeling of spending the days practically on the beach, but still secluded and hidden under the shade of pines and in the privacy of large garden. The entire property is perfect for families with small children, our children were spending the most of the days on the beach while we could watch them from the garden. The shops, bakery and pubs are on the easy walking distance to the centre of village Okrug where there are some nice restaurants also. The owner Srdana is a perfect host, gave us exact instructions on everything we needed and helped in arranging transportation as well.

We would love to come back again and share this experience with our friends!

Nice home but disappointing access to restaurants and shops.

  • 2 of 5

The house and it's location near a beautiful beach were lovely, and the host was sweet. We were very disappointed to find major construction going on next door (cement mixer, drills, dust) and our host did not warn us before arrival. The noise and lack of privacy impacted our enjoyment of the property, so be sure to ask about construction before you book this home.

The walk to stores and restaurants is up a steep hill on a very narrow street with traffic and no sidewalk or shoulder, and we didn't feel safe. We expected to be able to walk to meals and shopping and didn't have a car so we felt stranded.

Owner's Response: Dear Linda, unfortunatly we cannot influence on neighbor situations such as construction since they are allowed in low season periods. Otherwise, location of the house is on completely silent surrounding which provides the guests full tranquility. As for the narrow streets you mentioned, it is like that on all the islands around Croatia due to the low traffic. Anyhow, I hope you had nice vacation in Croatia and I'm you were our guests!

Wonderful place to relax and experience Croatia

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. Srdana made it all easy. Two great balconies, beautiful views, room to spread out. Sedans also hooked us up with a great car service that we used for the entire trip.

Toronto a wonderful small town and we could be the therE in ten minutes (but not on Saturday morning). You could walk it of young and fit, but a bit too much for us, hence the car service.had a great time, and would highly recommend.

Dream vacation by the beach

  • 5 of 5

What we loved the most was the fact that the beach and the sea is practically beyond the stone wall at the end of the garden. We were spending the entire days in bathing suits, relaxing in the hammocks under the pine trees and enjoying the various parts of the garden. The house is just as described, perfectly clean and comfortable. Srdana couldn't have been more welcoming as a host, she waited our arrival and then she left us to enjoy the house just for ourselves. Overall, perfect vacation!

The city of Trogir is located near the Adriatic highway which connects the south of Croatia with European countries. The international airport ''Split'' is only 3 km far from Trogir. Medieval town of Trogir is under UNESCO heritage with numerous fish restaurants, coffee bars and evening events offers a rich night life. 100 meters from the house, there is diving club. Tennis courts and other sport activities are in within a few kilometres from the house. Supermarkets, post office, ATM machine, exchange office, doctor, dentist and pharmacy are on 500 meters distance. 50 kilometres away you will find Sibenik and the National Park Krka and Kornati. The ancient towns of Split and Salona are 35 kilometres from the house. From Trogir, there are lot of boat excursions to the nearest islands and once a week a bus excursion to Dubrovnik. From Okrug Gornji and Trogir there are many quick boat connections with islands of Brac, Hvar and other near islands for one day excursions.
