“Delightful hosts ....”
Reviewed 8 November 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My wife and two young sons spent four nights of our six week trip to Europe at Casa Bella and loved every minute. Having stayed at 17 different accommodations in this time some of the finer details can become a little blurry (e.g. quality of pillows etc.). but two things stand out in my mind about Casa Bella. Firstly, how delightful the hosts are. We had some charming and extremely helpful hosts in Croatia in particular during our travels but none were better in this regards than Zeljko and Zeljka. Zeljko, the father greeted us at the door and then spent well over an hour showing us in detail all aspects of the apartment as well as providing travel tips and entertaining us with stories during the process. It was a battle to manage to help carry our bags up the staircase and he insisted that he meet us on our departure (from memory it was before 6am) and help us with our bags to the wharf where our ferry to Venice was departing. His daughter Zeljka who appears to manage the business side of arrangements was in Porec at the time and just happened to be catching the same ferry on a daytrip with business colleagues (believe she works for the Tourist Board) and insisted that we meet her - she was equally as lovely (obviously runs in the family). Secondly, the apartment itself feels like a typical beach holiday house - a great location; a lived in charm with lots of books, games and other useful items but no frills per se. It didn't have the stylish bathroom and flat screen TV like some of the places we stayed in but nor did it have the high price tag. What you do get is lots of space; a bright and airy apartment; great water views and an atmospheric location with the buzz of a small food market below. There was no real noise at night or early in the morning for that matter. We enjoyed watching DVDs one rainy afternoon and the boys enjoyed the small playground in front of the market as well as the impromptu game of football they started nearby with some local children with the ball found in the apartment. Parking was easy with the parking card provided with the apartment allowing free in and out access to the open air parking area along the waterfront. WiFi speed was reasonably good from memory. Highly recommend Casa Bella and the Despot hospitality that comes with it.

“A place you can call home”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Casa Bella is home. At first glance, it's unassuming and modest. Yet once inside, the space, light, cleanliness, well-stocked kitchen, shelf full of books, comfortable beds and sofa made us feel relaxed and in control immediately. There is nothing we can add to what has already been mentioned by many others before us. They are all true. It's a genuine place with real spirit.

“Perfect location - feel part of the town”
Reviewed 6 October 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We had previously stayed at Hotel Park on the edge of Rovinj so decided to try self-catering. This apartment was ideal. It was spotlessly clean, bright and spacious for our party of 3. It was well equipped including free wi-fi and a mobile phone to contact the owner Zelkja. her father was close by to help with luggage and any queries.
The location was great. We really felt part of the life of the old town. We spent a lot of time hanging out the windows just enjoying the sights and sounds of the market and the yachts and cruisers arriving at the harbour.
The only think which could cause problems for some guests would be the stairs to the second floor. The wooden rail was very loose and could not be used for support for those less mobile. We soon got use to nipping to the bakery a few yards away for morning bread and croissants, and there are many small supermarkets near by.
As always we enjoyed Rovinj and its many restaurants. Our favourites were skver da Marios and Marinos

“Exceeded Expectations!”
Reviewed 22 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

My father and I enjoyed our stay at Casa Bella when we were in Rovinj. The apartment was clean and spacious and had everything we needed to be comfortable. The location is central to everything you need - the beautiful sea view, the fresh market, grocery/bread, and restaurants. We never used the air conditioning, and enjoyed the sea breeze with the addition of the ceiling fan to keep the temperature in the apartment very comfortable.

When we arrived by bus, Zelko (Zelika's father) met us at the station and escorted us to the apartment. When we arrived, there was bottled water, fresh grapes for snacking and juice in the refrigerator! Beach towels, mats and toys were provided. They even provided backpacks in the event you wanted to borrow one to carry items to the beach! The cell phone Zelika provided came in handy during our stay. We needed to contact her to assist with a personal issue, and both she and her father were available and helped us through it. I can't thank them enough!!

They recommended restaurants and shops that were very good. I would love to go back to Rovinj and stay there on a future trip.

“Outstanding Stay in Rovinj”
Reviewed 30 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I can't say enough good things about our stay at Casa Bella in Rovinj. We were a family of 4 (including 2 teenagers). The apartment was in a terrific location and was spacious and well equipped. It was a quick walk to everywhere we wanted to go, we picked up delicious breakfast food at the bakery and enjoyed eating it in the apartment with the windows open and the sights and sounds of Rovinj below us. The kids appreciated the wifi, and the washing machine was an added bonus.

Not only was the apartment terrific, but our host, Zelko, was outstanding. He met us at the ferry and ensured that we had everything we needed, including coming back the next morning with beach towels for us. His recommendations of things to do, places to see and restaurants to eat at were all excellent. We were in Europe for 2 weeks and the 4 days we spent at Casa Bella were the highlight of the trip.

We look forward to returning to Rovinj sometime in the future and hope that Casa Bella is still there as I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else.

“Our favorite place in a wonderful trip”
Reviewed 12 June 2013 for a stay in April 2013

I have been meaning to write this review for quite a while as we so loved our stay here. The first thing I have to say is that our host was nothing short of amazing. His daughter, who usually is there was out of town, but still in touch by phone, and giving helpful suggestions from afar. They even had a cell phone in the room where all we had to do was press send to reach her. Her father could not have been more kind or thoughtful. He helped us with so many things - getting our tickets to Venice, helping me at a restaurant with my food allergies, suggesting wonderful out of the way places to see. He brought chocolates to our son. I could go on and on about him. It is rare to encounter someone like him - we will never forget him.

The apartment has everything you need including a laundry and plenty of space and light. The view to the water and the market is great. The open air market is below, and the vendors there had such fresh produce and put a little extra in my bag each day as a nice gesture. Parking is easy and right there. The palce is very clean and the kitchen was completely equipped with everything you need to cook with, including olive oil and spices. There was a bowl of fresh fruit and juice in the fridge when we arrived. I wish I had more time to write about this place, and my only regret is that we didn't stay longer. I have never extended an invitation to stay in my own home to a host of a rental, but in this case I did. I would be very happy to have them as guests after the wonderful treatment they gave us. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
