“The perfect place for my family”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

All you need at your dream vacation: a beautiful, big, clean, well equipped apartment with stunning view ; Beautiful pool and lot of outdoor activities (table tennis, basketball, trampoline and more); A very good WiFi connection and coverage. and the most important - wonderful, warm, friendly and resourceful hosts (all of Silvio's family) .

I wish we had more time there.

“Great stay in Podstrana”

person found this review helpful

We stayed at the largest of the 3 apartments within the 3 generation family villa. We arrived at the wrong place but after a quick phone call me met our host and were at the property. Family very friendly and helpful and we all had a welcome drink. Fruit and local wine left in the apartment on arrival. We were also invited to a BBQ on departure but could not male it. A car was a necessity for us as the 15 min hike up the hill was unpleasant in the heat. It was a very good place to explore the region. The house BBQ was wood fired and very different from those in the UK.
We liked the amenities in the house, they had thought of almost everything. They had missed a curtain in the bedroom but once informed they soon had it fixed. The family were always trying to help.
We did not like the restricted view from the balcony that had huge orange building in front and the distance (and steepness) from the local beach.
Overall great holiday in great location.

“A truly fantastic place, with wonderful hosts.”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a fabulous 2 week family holiday at Villa Maria.
From the outset all our dealings with Silvio were excellently handled and he was always extremely prompt in replying to any of our queries. This made us feel confident that we had chosen a great property and we were not to be disappointed.
Villa Maria occupies a fantastic spot overlooking Split harbour and yes, whilst it is a bit of a steep climb back up from the beach the views more than make up for it. The villa is beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and fantastically well equipped. We found it to be in an excellent location as we could visit numerous places of interest and had the option of cheap public transport if we chose to use it. The surrounding area has plenty to offer people of all ages and the scenery is absolutely spectacular.
Above all the thing that really made this holiday was the hospitality shown to us by Silvio and his entire family. Silvio was always there to offer practical advice and useful information but you never felt he was intrusive and his family always welcomed us with a smile and provided us with freshly grown produce and a fantastically cooked barbeque. We had a truly memorable stay and shall definitely return in the future.

“Excellent stay for family w children”
Reviewed July 29, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We stayed at Villa Maria for six days in July and had an excellent stay. The apartment was really wonderful and contained everything we needed, and came with the most beautiful view of the sea - morning and night!. With it came the use of the pool, playground and garden. Silvio, our host picked us up from the airport and was extremely helpful in arranging transport for shopping before we got our own rented car. The place is located just 5 km south of Split on a steep hill, so if you're traveling with children I recommend a car.
It was really a pleasure staying at Villa Maria and we fully recommend this place for anyone who wants to enjoy Spilt and its surroundings but who doesn't want to stay in Spilt.

“Fantastic property and fantastic host”
Reviewed July 5, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I went on holiday to Villa Maria with a group of 9 friends, to celebrate a 30th birthday. Villa Maria was a perfect location for us. Spacious and well amended, not too far from Split - easy to get there and back either via bus or by taxi. Silvio went above and beyond to make us feel welcome, even driving some of the group to the supermarket, and to the airport! He was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us some really useful tips about what to see and do. Including the best chicken sandwiches in the area! (definitely try them). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Silvio and his property to anyone heading to Croatia on holiday.

“Memorable holiday by the Adriatic Sea”
Reviewed June 26, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

In mid June we stayed one week in Villa Maria, which is located on a hill in Podstrana village. The distance from the villa to Split is about 9 km.

Our group consisted of 11 people including adults and children (6-14 years). The feedback from all of us regarding the villa and it's hosts was extremely positive.

The villa is located an a peaceful and secure area about 15 minutes walk to the nearest beach and grocery shops. There is a cosy bakery just 5 minutes walk from the villa. The green and well-kept garden and pool area are spacious. They have wonderful views during the day and night to the sea, towards Split and mountains. Of course the views are even better from the balconies of the villa. The interiors inside the villa are also very nice and clean.

Last but not least the hosts made our stay very special and memorable. Silvio and all the other family members took so good care of us during our holiday week. We haven't experienced such a hospitality before. They eg. organized the transportation from/to the airport, arranged a trip to the wonderful national park Krka and took us for grocery shopping. They also told good tips and advices to us whenever needed.

I definetely recommend this house especially to the families with children and groups who appreciate relaxing and home like atmosphere during the vacation.

On behalf of our whole group I want to thank you so much for everything – hvala :) We absolutely hope to return back to Villa Maria someday in the future.

“Beautiful apartments and WONDERFUL host”
Reviewed June 16, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Myself and 15 girls stayed at Villa Maria and rented out all three apartments at the end of May 2014 for our friends Hen Do. We had the most amazing stay and most of this was down to the owner Silvio and his hospitality. Nothing was too much bother for him - he organised taxis for the group when we wanted to go into Split, organised transfers to and from the airport, gave us a tour of the local area, took us down to the supermarket and went out of his way to make us feel welcome (even helping us with our bbq)! The apartments were fantastic, very clean, spacious and well equipped for large groups. The pool and garden area was well maintained and is cleaned on a daily basis by Silvio for the guests to enjoy. Silvio and his family have done an excellent job in making Villa Maria a wonderful place to stay, the friendly approach coupled with the beautiful views and fantastic apartment makes this the perfect place to be located when visiting Split. Strongly recommended – we will be back!
