Amazing holiday rental!

  • 5 of 5

The house was incredible. Peaceful, spacious and everything you could want in a self-catering holiday home. Blanka and her friend John were very welcoming, had great communication from the moment we booked and offered up some great suggestions to enhance our holiday. We would definitely recommend a stay at Villa Blanka!

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

For my boyfriends 30th birthday we decided to rent this villa for us and 5 of our friends. It has been above and beyond of our expectations. The house suits a friend group but equally families that want to go on holiday with each other. It has a nice kitchen, two big fridges and an AMAZING bbq/ fire place to cook some amazing steaks. The rooms are good in size and they have air-conditioning. Don't worry about it not being near the beach, it's a very easy and short ride to get there. around 10/15 minutes depending to which beach you want to go.

Next to that Blanka is an amazing host. She is kind, caring and she keeps you updated on nice events in the area. She even baked my boyfriend a cake for his birthday! Truly an amazing woman and a perfect host. The house was easy to get to although the road up is a bit tricky for big cars and people who are afraid of heights.

We'll be definitely coming here more often!

Wonderful, loved the house and the atmosphere. Higly reccomended!

  • 5 of 5

Blanka and John are the perfect hosts! The house is lwonderful, it has a beatuiful view, several relaxing patios and a great swimming pool. Nice indoors and very clean. Its a perfect location if you want to explore Split and the surrounding area. We love hiking and there are several hiking trails in the nearby mountains. The crosssaints bought at the local bakery tastes fantastic. Would love to come back!

Ps: its a pretty narrow row up to the house. A small car is reccomended.

Beautiful villa in relaxing and peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed when we arrived at this lovely villa. Blanka and John were so hospitable and Blanka presented us with a much appreciated food platter and drinks. The villa had everything you would need for a stress-free and relaxing break. Everything you would find at home was right there. The property was so spacious that everyone could have their own area and not be under each others feet. The bbq room was a great place to cook the amazing selection of meat from the little butchers in the village. Time can be spent around the pool from which you have an amazing view of the mountains, valley towards the sea and small town below. We could not fault a thing. We had a truly amazing holiday and did not want to go home. Thank you Blanka and John. Also for the recommendations, advice on places to visit and restaurants and John's expert travel directions. We would thoroughly recommend this property.

Catherine, Mark, Heather, Sophie and Reece.

Lovely and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Blanka was everything we hoped it would be -- charming, peaceful and relaxing -- and all thanks to Blanka and John. They are wonderful, caring hosts who made us feel very welcome. Blanka and John gave us lots of good tips on places to visits. Our holiday was only short, but we took their advice and managed to explore Split, Omis and Trogir, all worth the visit.

The villa, itself, is beautiful with loads of room inside and out. It is well-maintained, very clean and the kitchen is well-equipped. The gardens around Villa Blanka are beautiful and perfect for whiling away the afternoon. And the views are stunning!

We hope to return to Villa Blanka for a nice, long holiday!

The perfect Croatian gem

  • 5 of 5

We spent a glorious week at Villa Blanka for our family summer holiday. What can I say? It's perfect!

The villa has everything you need - all of the home comforts that make a family holiday run smoothly (washing machine, dishwasher, satellite TV, wifi); a beautiful, large swimming pool - which our 2 sons LOVED and spent most of the day splashing around in; different spaces to relax in the lush, well-tended garden (there are 3 hammocks, so no one need miss out), multiple options for al-fresco dining around the villa - including a really special BBQ area, and lots of space inside. My husband and I made the most of having our own 'wing' in the villa, while the boys enjoyed their own bathroom and sitting room. It was such a treat!

The view is spectacular. The villa looks out over the valley, and the dramatic craggy hilltops and sea view complete the vista. There are plenty of beautiful beaches within a 20 minute drive, including one of Croatia's few sandy beaches - a rare find!

Blanka and John are wonderful hosts; genuinely warm and welcoming (really, nothing is too much trouble), but never intrusive. Blanka made us a delicious welcome lunch and we were also lucky enough to be left a gift of local cake, part-way through our holiday.

We are starting to consider our 2016 summer holiday, and I can't imagine we could ever find somewhere as wonderful as Villa Blanka. If we visit Croatia again, we will definitely return! Thank you for a wonderful holiday.
