“SUPERB place to stay near Sibenik”
Reviewed 11 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The photos don't do it justice: the views and light from virtually every window is STUNNING. Every day we saw an incredible sunset as the property is west facing. There are three large double bedrooms, all with large bathrooms and three balconies. The property easily accommodates 3 couples, 2 babies and a child (or a combination depending on whether your kids are happy to share a queen size bed). We were there as two families with a baby and two kids between us and there was plenty of space, air conditioning, a washing machine a dishwasher (essential to make your holiday stress free). The BBQ kitchen downstairs has a separate fridge, crockery/cutlery and a dishwasher to save schlepping up and down with dirty plates.

The owner Slavko lives on the ground floor and has excellent English (he lived in the UK for 40 years), he's super helpful and looks after the (wonderful) pool every day. You can't tell from the photos but the end of the pool is an infinity so you can see the sea from your lilo.

The beach outside the gate is lovely even by Croatian standards and very sandy - some days the cove was so still and calm it was like looking at a lake. I didn't encounter any urchins in this bay even though they're prolific around the Dalmatian coast.

There are two small supermarkets within walking distance, and two massive ones a 10-15 drive away. There's a great beach place for a drink - the 'Shark bar' which sells cheap beer, pizza, pasta and local snacks - it's a 90 second walk along the beach and there's an even better pizza joint/bar another 5 min walk further along, past the Shark bar.

Day excursions should include a trip to Sibenik (15 mins drive) and the Krka national park (20 mins drive). Taxis can be booked if you don't fancy driving.

Apparently it stays warm here til the end of October.

Minor quibbles: more chopping boards would be great, and larger bowls for cereal. The directions from Slavko were based on the coastal drive (our satnav made us came the quickest way so we were coming from the wrong direction), and the directions to local restaurants should be read carefully. Also, one thing for future planning - the bathrooms are huge but the shower cubicles are not, if budget allows a refurb at some point would be great to get larger shower cubicles in there.

We really loved this holiday and the house was far better than we expected. Even the wifi was great!
