About the property

Quality villa with superb pool, sunbathing areas and garden terraces, sleeps 4-6

This fabulous villa, known as Jasmine House, is a beautiful old stone building, in the Venetian style. It has everything you could want for a luxury holiday in the sun.

The beautiful property has been stylishly renovated by its English owners to retain as much of the Venetian character as possible, while providing some of the most luxurious and comfortable accommodation available in the whole of Croatia.

It is located in a quiet village just a few steps above a pretty, bustling quayside with its shops and restaurants, on the charming island of Vis.

The island was recently chosen for the filming of "Mamma Mia 2 - Here we Go Again" with Meryl Streep, Colin Firth and Pierce Brosnan. It will come out in July 2018. Our house was selected to accommodate one of the most important VIP's involved in the film (we've had to sign an NDA so we can't reveal who). But we can assure you that if you book the house you will be following in the footsteps of Hollywood !

The property occupies the prime position on the bay, so it has wonderful views over the bay of Vis which is a picture postcard setting. There is a beautiful monastery on a promontory at the far side, a tiny island in the middle of the bay, and of course the turquoise Adriatic sea. You can watch the yachts and fishing boats come and go, and enjoy the evening sun as it sets across the bay. Vis is blessed with some stunning sunsets and you will have the best position to enjoy them.

The great advantage of this location is that you don't need a car the whole time. You can walk to the quayside in a few minutes where there are shops, grocery stores, bakers, bars and restaurants. Your evenings can be much more relaxing as you stroll around the bay deciding on your restaurant for the evening. Or you can "eat in" enjoying the balmy night air on our middle terrace with atmospheric lighting over the marble table.

The island of Vis would suit people who want a completely different holiday, dislike commercialisation, and enjoy really good food and wine. They may also have an interest in history (lots of naval history), sailing, diving (Greek, Roman and 16c/17c/18c wrecks), vineyards, ecology (said to be the only totally organic island in the world) and incredible ice-cream.

The island is one of the few genuinely unspoilt islands in the Mediterranean - no high-rise hotels or villa parks here - yet it has a sophisticated Dalmatian culture and excellent food.

There are three main villages on the island - Vis 'Town' and Kut are on either side a a fabulous C-shaped bay on the north-eastern coast, while Komiza, a tiny fishing village is on the far west side of the island. The mountainous interior is scenic, well worth visiting. There are great beaches near to all the 3 main villages, and a few smaller ones down the east and south coast of the island, near to Stoncica, Milna and Rukavac. There are both pebble and sand beaches on Vis.

Please be aware that Vis is a hilly island and both Vis Town, Kut and Komiza have several sets of stone steps, usually on the lanes leading down to the quayside or towards the beaches. This holiday is not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties.

About Jan Stewart

We are a semi-retired couple, who found the island of Vis by accident...and realised it was one of the truly magical places in the world! We fell in love with the island and set about buying a ruin and then commissioning a local builder to renovate it. No idea how we managed it, but we did, and now the house is a delight.

Jan Stewart purchased this villa in 2004

Why Jan Stewart chose Vis

We didn't intend to buy a house, but like many holidaymakers we amused ourselves by asking a local agent to show us what was for sale, and as we walked up the steps of this house we saw the view and we knew we had to move heaven and earth to make it ours.

What makes this villa unique

The view - it's glorious!

Great house and location for your Vis stay

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Jasmine Villa. Great house, and location perfect for the nearby shops, boats, restaurants, and beaches. Spent our 10 days mixing activities (including cycling, swimming, snorkelling, boat trips, fishing) with enjoying time at the house and pool. Island is relatively small, but largely unspoilt by tourism. We would recommend as a destination- and Jasmine Villa a great place to experience it from.

Beautiful villa wonderful location.

  • 5 of 5

This is not our first time in Croatia but it is our first in Vis. We were not disappointed! The villa was beautiful perfectly equipped all that you could possibly need. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with own hairdryer. Kitchen really well equipped all appliances that you possibly need. The villa also supplied pool and beach towels also mats and cooler bags for the beach. So thoughtful!

The location is perfect the only placed we have stayed where you really don't need or miss a car. Restaurants, shops, bakery all just a short walk. There is a beach just a 15/20 min walk away also.

Vis is beautiful, cobbled streets beautiful 14 century buildings and churches. There are many different restaurants to choose from all reasonably priced with local food and wine.

Jan was extremely helpful with ferries and travel arrangements we were met and taken to the villa with help on booking ferries.

Thank you for allowing us to use your beautiful villa and to experience Vis. We will definitely return again.

A beautiful house in a charming location. Perfect for a relaxing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

All practical matters before and during our holiday in Vis were smoothly handled by the host and owner of the property. It was our first experience of HomeAway and it will not be the last.

The house is beautiful, well managed and highly functional with separate shiny new bathrooms for each bedroom. We felt at home right away. Having access to a pool was just amazing. The location is perfect with a wonderful view over the bay and the town of Vis. We had many nice meals in different restaurants in Vis, especially good quality fish and seafood. It was our first visit in Vis but definitely not the last. We already look forward to the next one. We can highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you loved the villa. It is still rare to find anywhere with a pool on Vis so we are glad you obviously appreciated it, as we do...and we agree that Vis is a really special island. Yes, the fish meals are absolutely amazing!

This is a stunning, restful and magical place

  • 5 of 5

We were bowled over by this house. It's location is superb with great views from all aspects. The house has very recently been renovated extremely well. It is light, spacious and beautifully finished. We particularly liked the bedroom arrangements which meant that each of the three coupled had a spacious self-contained area to themselves. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic house

  • 5 of 5

Great house, impressive design and finished to the highest of standards. Great views of the 'bay' of Vis town to enjoy an evening cocktail. Close to some very good restaruants as well. A lovely home from home.

Fantastic Villa

  • 5 of 5

Previous reviews say it all but maybe do not convey what a truly special place this is in terms of location, views, furnishings, facilities, levels of comfort, luxury and service. In this magical place, stress disappears and time does not seem to matter. What a tonic! I am not sure 5 stars is enough! We will be back.

Perfectly located, this wonderful villa is above the lively waterfront in Kut, a charming village of Venetian-built houses which rises uphill from the quayside. Kut has a good selection of shops and restaurants, and is just 20 minutes' walk around the bay from the larger Vis Town.

From all the windows and terraces there are wonderful views of the sea and the stunning bay of Vis. All the terraces are great places to relax in the evening and to enjoy the breath-taking sunsets for which Vis is famous. The Adriatic sea is just a very short walk down some stone village steps and the beach is at the end of a lane which is just below the property. Apart from the wonderful Venetian architecture, the other big advantage to being in Kut is that you're just a few minute's walk away from all the good restaurants (most are in Kut) so no scary night-time drives around the hair-pin bends to get back to an isolated villa in a less populated area. And no need to get in a car and drive miles for your bread in the morning. There are two bakeries, two greengrocer's and small grocery store just a few minutes' walk away, down the village steps, while a fish market and a local fruit/veg market are in Vis Town which is a 20 minute walk away along the picturesque lane which winds around the bay.
