House is clean, commodius and has everything you need to spend your vacation in peace, surrounded with mediterranean nature. Goranko was very good host and there for us about everything we needed. Certainly we'll visit Dragove and Grandpa Mate house again. I totally recommend it!

“Romantic well-suited place for families and friends”
Reviewed May 26, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

Our time in the village Dragove was beautiful. We rented both houses, Grandpa Mate and Aunt Regina, because we were on vacation with children and grandparents. The two houses are old stone houses in typical mediterranean style and accurate restored and furnished by the owners to the smallest detail. The stylish patio with mediterranean stone floors and fragrant jasmine and rosemary bushes overgrown walls connects both houses and makes them a single unit. The kitchen and bathroom are well equipped, it has EVERYTHING one needs. Sleeping in the large beds with a 5 star pillow menu and mosquito netting on all windows is wonderful. The sunny evenings on the terrace will remain in beautiful memory. The location is not far from the sea, very quiet and close to nature and the inhabitants of Dragove were very friendly, courteous and helpful. The communication with Goranko was super fast and nice and on site his neighbor helped us a lot and was available for questions. In sum really perfect and joyful, we’ll come again :-D

We visited Dugi Otok first time, and we stay at Grandpa Mate House.
Everything was perfect: apartment, communication with owner and landscape.
There are a lot of wonderful things to visit in this region.
We can recommend this place to everyone.

“A lovely place on a lovely island.”
Reviewed March 28, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We arrived at Dugi otok to visit the „ Strašna peć“ cave that is only a 20 minute drive away from our rental homes that we chose for their location, design and amenities. Since March is still cold at night we were very happy to find our home already warm so we had a quick recovery from the cold and rain that followed us. The next morning was even better since the view from our bedrooms and from the terrace at Regina House shows a spectacular view of the sunrise. The neighborhood is very quiet so we felt like we ere alone on the island, a true paradise.
Our hosts were very welcoming, besides the warm house we were greeted with coffee, mandarins, tea, water and a Wi-Fi connection that was surprisingly fast and covered both houses, the terrace and part of the garden so we could get in touch with our friends and family while enjoying the outside air. Our hosts were also very quick to respond to our needs, bringing us salt and sugar that we forgot.
The next day we found some locally made honey, olive oil and fresh fish that we prepared on our garden barbecue. We enjoyed a lovely dinner with perhaps a bit too much wine.

Stigli smo na Dugi otok kako bi posjetili špilju Strašna peć koja je udaljena dvadesetak minuta vožnje od kuća za odmor koje smo izabrali zbog njihovog položaja, uređenja i opreme. U ožujku su noći još uvijek hladne, ali su nas obje kuće dočekale zagrijane te smo onako promrzli i pokisli imali vrlo brzi oporavak.
Pogled iz spavaćih soba i s natkrivene terase Regina House u vrijeme izlaska sunca je spektakularan. Susjedstvo je potpuno neprimjetno, te smo imali osjećaj da smo sami na otoku. Kada smo došli dočekala nas je kava, mandarine, čaj i voda u bocama, zaboravili smo donijeti sol i šećer, ali je domaćin vrlo brzo riješio naš problem. Internet je iznenađujuće brz i pokriva obje kuće, terase i dio vrta pa smo mogli uživati u vanjskom zraku dok se javljamo obitelji I prijateljima.
Drugi dan smo nabavili lokalno proizveden med, maslinovo ulje i ribu kod jednog mještana koju smo ispekli na gradelama u vrtu. Uživali smo u odličnoj večeri, jedino smo se malo preračunali u bocama vina.

“Amazing atmosphere in a cute Dalmatian village”
Reviewed March 27, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

This was the the first time I came to Dugi otok this time of the year (late March). We have chosen two houses (Aunt Regina House and Grandpa Mate House) in Dragove as a starting point for a bicycle tour to the Veli Rat Lighthouse on Saturday and to Lake Mir and Telaščica Bay on Sunday. The houses are situated at the top of the hill and offer a phenomenal view of the sea and the islands. The houses are obviously equipped for the use of the owners so that the entire equipment and all the furniture is far above the customary standard. Coffee, tea, water bottles and double towel sets were waiting for us, our host helped us to buy local lavender honey and allowed us to check-out at 5 pm! It was great!

“A great stay at Grandpa Mate's house :)”
Reviewed March 21, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The house was really nice and clean. :) The owner turned on the heating before we arrived (since we came on a cold weekend in March) so we arrived in a warm house. There were towels and toiletries in the bathroom, tea, coffee and fresh water in the kitchen. It is close to the ferry and by a car you can easily reach all parts of the island.
