“Lovely house for family, close to beach, in pleasant village.”
Reviewed September 1, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

person found this review helpful

Family of 4 traveling with 12 year old twins. House was as exactly as described: everything felt new, very clean, comfortable - exactly as described in the listing. Owner Marica went above and beyond expectations, arranging lifts, sorting out ferry tickets for us, and sending husband to the fish-market to get the freshest, best fish for us! The home-cooked Croatian meal she prepared for us was a delight, and the home-pressed olive-oil like nothing I've had before - wonderful. Good time sitting up on the terrace, drinking wine, and discussing politics, the EU, Yugoslav war with us. The pet cat Mimi and her 3 kittens were a delight for everyone - we have cats too. (Note to non-cat people: they don't get indoors, and only approach the terrace if you're friendly to them!)

Beach was close enough - 5 minutes - and very clean, and pretty quiet. Rocky coastline might not suit those looking for miles of golden sand, but provides much more interest for snorkelling and diving - water clarity amazing, and lots of fish, urchins, anemones etc. We didn't venture to the sandy beach in the village - was a bit busy for us.

Stobrec itself had everything you'd need. Supermarkets fine, pharmacy, souvenirs - all good. We ate out a couple of times, and meals out were excellent, and very reasonably priced. We found that to be the case throughout Croatia. Bus into Split was fine, and worth a visit. Fast ferry to Dubrovnik, an overnight there was a great trip too. Trogir also worth a visit, but the No. 37 bus from Split was torture in 35 degC heat, and no air-con (or suspension, apparently!!!)

In summary, we had a wonderful stay, and would definitely go back in the future. Really, in this day and age where there are so many places to see and visit, there can be no higher recommendation than that. :-)

“Fully equipped and ideally located”
Reviewed August 2, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

We were greeted by our lovely host, Marica, who could not have been more welcoming. The house had everything we could have wanted and was equipped with every kitchen utensil you could wish for! We enjoyed breakfast and many a glass of wine on the quaint terrace. Marica showed us quiet beaches were we were able to sunbathe and swim in almost complete privacy. The sea is amazing but don't forget your beach shoes as the beaches are pebbly. Located within walking distance of supermarkets, bakery, restaurants, cafes, bars and beaches, the house is a great base for all needs. Split is approximately 10 minutes drive from Stobrec, head for the harbour and old town - beautiful! The day we needed to be there very early for a boat trip, Marica kindly drove us there herself. That was after bringing morning coffee to share! Marica wasn't intrusive but was always available if we needed help, advice or coffee! Thanks Marica for everything! Ian & Jackie xx

“Beautiful house spotlessly clean, stunning views, fantastic helpful owner!”
Reviewed July 22, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

.i stayed here with my son & his girlfriend for 2 weeks. The house is very beautiful in a stunning private location with views of majestic mountains & glistening sea Everything perfect!! The open plan living/dining area has all you need, table & chairs, sofa, TV on the wall, and the kitchen separated by breakfast bar has all you need, fridge freezer, cooker etc. Cutlery & saucepans etc. all shining clean! Big clean bathroom with excellent shower toilet and sink. Also an extra separate toilet, really useful! Bedrooms have REALLY comfortable beds, lovely clean cotton sheets and all the towels you could want, that were all changed half way through our stay Table and chairs in pretty garden with gorgeous flowers right outside the door plus above up a few steps is a flat terrace with loungers and a hammock! Total paradise! The air conditioning worked brilliantly and was very welcome as we got ready to go out in the evenings. The owner Marcia was fantastic,Arranged to pick us up from the airport which was great! Marcia is a lovely lady, unobtrusive, but really helpful if you needed something. She speaks excellent English, makes a mean coffee, gave us some fresh onions, garlic aubergines and tomatoes from her own garden, and made us an excellent Croatian fish meal on our last night!! Even lent us her bicycle! There is a short walk down to the village with different points to access almost private stretch of beach. (Marcia will show you) or you can walk down to the main beach around the bay a little where you can get sunbeds etc. The bars and restaurants served fab freshly cooked food at amazingly cheap prices compared to UK! Great service too. The local people are very friendly and welcoming. Don't miss the fab restaurant at the campsite, you can eat there even if not staying there, great panoramic views! Also restaurant Lovacki Rog at the bottom of the hill on the right is fantastic! Would recommend this property wholeheartedly. It was perfect! Thank you Marcia for all your help!

“A Very Special Place”
Reviewed May 23, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

The offer to be collected from the airport by Marica was gratefully received. Welcome to Croatia, a great host and a lovely location.

This “Chic House by the Sea” really is great. It’s not huge in size but it’s big in charm. Everything is here, the memory foam beds, dishwasher, washing machine, everything you could want in the kitchen that encourages you to say yes- I could do some serious cooking with local ingredients here.

Think of an apartment, but with a small garden to enjoy breakfast in, the barbecue for the evenings and then the roof terrace with sun loungers !

But what really adds the sparkle to the place is your host Marica (and MiMi – a beautiful white cat who adopts you for the time you’re there) Fond memories of coffee with them in the morning, loads of advice and a great laugh.

The beach is just a few minutes away. It’s small, stony, some stone steps, but when you get there you have a small deserted beach with perfectly clear Adriatic sea lapping near your feet, a lovely view of the islands and the houses down towards the village. Its backed by fir trees that give you the chance to choose sun or shade.

Stobrec is a lovely village in a bay with a palm tree lined promenade. Several small supermarkets with great butchers and fresh produce, a few bar/restaurants which seemed to be well supported by the locals and only about 10 minutes to stroll down to.

Split is only about 20 mins away on the bus 25 from Stobrec for 13kn. A great place to wander around with palm lined seafront gardens, al fresco bar/restaurants and if you wander into the Roman old town some lovely history and great quality places to eat at reasonable prices.

If you want to have a relaxed holiday in a lovely unspoiled village in a unique accommodation with a wonderful host, this is it.

When Marica said goodbye to us at the airport it was like saying goodbye to a good friend !

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in December 2013

We had an excellent stay in Split mostly because of the great hostess of this property. We were welcomed very warmly. Everything was easy. The hostess was really kind, friendly and communicative. Especially must admit we were treated with homemade treats daily. The property was fully equipped and comfortable, located near to the beach and close to all amusement places. Highly recommendable and return worthy. Marica, thank you thousand times. With warmest Regards smile emoticon
