We had a really excellent stay here, and would highly recommend this accommodation. The flat is beautifully maintained, well laid out with plenty of room and all amenities, the beds are large and very comfortable and the upstairs balcony is especially nice for chilling out at any time of day. The pool is as nice as it looks in the pictures - with a 4yr old in tow, we were rarely out of it! There are mountain bikes to borrow too - but my other half stayed in the pool and let me battle the hills… :-)
I had been worried that the nearby town of Marina would be small and there would not be much to do there - but there are plenty of good restaurants, nice local beaches, local shops and well stocked supermarkets. It’s an easy drive to Trogir, Sibenik and the Krka National Park - the location turned out to be excellent.
Our hosts were lovely and very friendly and the hospitality was outstanding - it made a real difference to our stay. Thank you Ivan, Ivanka and all your family for a great holiday.
Fantastic property with excellent facilities.
The setting of the accommodation is idyllic and there is everything you could need in the villa. With the supermarket a few minutes drive away it’s perfect.
Choosing to lounge by the pool a few days was incredibly peaceful and the location serves great for exploring further north and up the coast.
Ivan and his family were so welcoming and accommodating, they treated us to fresh fruits and local delicacies.
Would definitely recommend
A lovely villa in a beautiful part of Croatia
We had a lovely 10 day stay in Ivan and Ivana's villa in a hillside village, about 1.5 miles from the coast.
The property had everything this family of four (mum, dad, one teen and one pre-teen) could need - from a great pool to Netflix and wifi!
The villa is very comfortable and has all mod cons. Ivan and Ivana are incredibly welcoming hosts and couldn't do enough for us, without being intrusive.
They treated us to some wonderful food and Ivan even accompanied us to the garage when we had a problem with our hire car.
We also loved their very friendly and gentle family dog and a newly adopted kitten!
The villa is in a lovely part of Croatia - we visited the Krka waterfalls and hired a boat to explore the bay around the nearby town of Marina.
Ivan also showed us some secluded beaches with amazingly clear water. Bring/buy a snorkel and wet shoes as the beaches are all pebbly.
Nearby Trogir is picturesque but was busy in the height of August.
We had a wonderful stay and recommend this villa and area very highly.
thank you on your wonderfull rewiew and we hope that we will see you all again.
Regards from all family Stojan
This is a delightful and very comfortable house that had everything in it we needed.The pool area and garden are beautiful.
Gustirna is a small, very quiet village, but Marina is only 3 kilometres away which has a variety of shops, bars and restaurants. We had a really good meal at Konoba Kod Duje.
What made our holiday extra special was getting to know Ivan, Ivanka and their lovely family. They were very generous and couldn't do enough to make our stay perfect. We loved spending time with them, learning about the area and it's history. We particularly liked sampling their home made wines, liqueurs, cakes and garden produce.
Highly recommended! We will definitely return if we come back to Croatia.
Dear Ken ,
We are glad that you enjoyed staying at our home , and we are only sorry that you did not have more sunny days during your stay.
Best regards to you and Marilyn and we hope that we will see you again.
2nd visit and still fantastic
During the last 10 years me and my family have visited a lot of holiday houses. We never visited the same house twice – not because the houses, were bad, but because we always wanted to see something new.
This year was different – because our experience last year (2016) in “Oasis Hylis” was so fantastic that everyone in our family wanted to return!
Our conclusion this year is exactly the same: very nice location, fantastic house and a host family who is simply second to none.
And yes - we will most likely return again 😊
Dear family Lyshoj Dam , thank you so much on this kind words. For us you are not only guests, you are more like friends or family.
We wish you many love and light, and until some next time, best regards.
Beautiful house and fantastic owner family
The house was well equipped, clean and beautiful. We had amazing evenings on the roof terrace with a lovely view of the village, and we spend the days at the pool area - and at the nice beaches close by. All in all - the house and surroundings exceeded our expectations by far.
However, what really made this a true FIVE star experience were the fantastic owner family. They did everything possible to make our holiday one of the best in ever. We experienced warm and friendly hospitality from all family members giving us insights in Croatian culture, tips about where to find the best restaurant, beach etc. The friendliness we experienced is hard to describe in writing – but please allow yourself to go there to experience it on your own.
We can only give this place the best recommendation – and we will definitely return!
Thank you on this beautiful review ,we had luck to have you as a guest and we hope to see you all again .Greetings to all your family from all family Stojan.
