“amazing location, best welcome in the world, couldn't ask for more”

person found this review helpful

Arrived late on a rainy Saturday night and was met by Zeljko who is the most helpful and kindest man you could ever expect to meet. The following morning Zeljko again popped round to leave a mobile phone and explain the workings of the apartment and even took me on a 1 hour tour of hidden Rovinj, pointing out all wonderful places and the best bakeries etc, even helping me order a special birthday cake for one of our group. Free wi-fi, large tv with hundreds of channels, everything you could ever want or need on holiday. The weather was a bit mixed, Rovinj suffering the same as central Europe and Italy in particular with unstable weather this summer, but nevertheless, Rovinj is such a wonderful place that there is always so much to see and do. There are so many wonderful restaurants that I won't list here but I have reviewed them on tripadvisor separately.

Best trip was on a boat that leaves the Valdibora side every morning called 'father and son' but in Croatian lol !! Amazing day out with Daniel playing Croatian traditional songs with his accordion and the whole boat joining in to well-known songs. So much better than the more popular but sonetimes sterile Lim Fijord trips from the better known companies.

All in all a brilliant stay in a wonderful central apartment owned and managed by the nicest people you could ever meet.

Thanks again Zeljko and Zelijka for a wonderful stay

Hvala !!!

“Great place”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We enjoyed our stay in Casa Bela very much, in particular the location. Our kids (age 7) were very comfortable and had the great time. The location is perfect. Finally, I should say that we stayed at many apartments all over the world, but have never had such helpful hosts as Zeljka and her father! Hope to come back soon again.

“Amazing, Perfect, & Wonderful”
Reviewed 23 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

From the beginning of the process of booking the apartment, Zeljka was super attentive and easy to work with. She worked with me at every stage of the booking process and helped to point me in the direction of best places to go, tours, and things to see and do. Upon arrival, which was quite late at night, her dad, Zeljko, met us at the ferry. He had a sign with my name on it and welcomed us quite warmly. He insisted on carrying one of our massively heavy pieces and luggage to the apartment (which is directly above the market and close to the ferry stop) and carried it up the stairs. Once in the apartment, he gave us a very detailed introduction the place and how things worked, etc. He then took us on a short walk to the town center and bid us farewell. Along the walk to the square, he pointed out places to get breakfast, coffee and vendors that are easy to work with in the market. The very next day, he brought us clean beach towels, toilet paper and the most delicious coffee. Halfway through our stay, the family team came over and changed our bedding and even hooked up a new tv for us to watch the work cup on! Zeljko & Zeljka are so easy to work with and really one of the nicest family I have encountered. They both gave us such good suggestions on beaches, bike rides, drives, restaurants, and things to do in Rovinj (and the surrounding areas) that they made our trip one of the best we have ever taken. I cannot tell you enough how their hospitality made the trip so over the top, that we will be talking about it for years. The apartment is MASSIVE! There is so much space and it really does feel like a home. There is bedroom that over looks the market and out onto the sea. In the morning, when the market starts bustling, you simply close the shutters and windows and you seriously cannot hear any noise. The back bedroom overlooks a caffe and restaurant and a church so there are literally no neighbors! You simply cannot find a better deal with a nicer family than Casa Bella. I will whole-heartedly recommend this apartment to anyone that plans to stay in Rovinj! One of my favorite places ever!

“Lovely apartment in the ideal location. Very friendly and helpful hosts.”
Reviewed 3 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We had a great week at Casa Bella. Everything we needed was there to make us feel at home and to make the holiday as easy as possible. Basic foodstuffs (condiments, coffee/tea etc) plus all the kitchen accessories. Spacious and light rooms, very comfortable beds, a washing machine that works! Rovinj just outside the door so no driving required and free parking kindly provided by our super hosts who gave us a lovely welcome and a comprehensive introduction to the town, the islands and Istria. Our word of the week: 'Fabulous'. We've already booked our visit next year!

“The owners are fabulous”
Reviewed 27 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

The apartment is truly a home away from home. It has absolutely everything you can think of. Full size kitchen with every appliance you will ever need. Extra blankets, pillows, sheets, towels etc a washing machine and a line outside to dry clothes on. The rooms are huge. We travelled with our 20 year old daughter and we had plenty of room to spend quiet time for reading etc. The owners are superb they are always available for questions and at no cost as they provide a cell phone that links to Zelijka the daughter. She is also a tour guide and when she is not in town her father Zelko is there. We ended up staying an extra day and were really lucky the apartment was available. The location is fantastic right above the local daily fresh food market looking out on the harbour in the old town. Everything you need is right there, grocery stores, exchange shops, souvenirs, butchers, bakeries. We have been to Rovinj 4 times and Casa Bella is without a doubt the best place we have stayed.
