We visited Villa Maria or a work offsite and couldn't be more impressed with the facilities and the hospitality!
There was plenty of room for the 7 of us to have our own bedrooms across the three apartments, and plenty of recreational areas as well.
The facilities were all of the highest standard and our hosts went above and beyond to help us!
Location wise, the views were beautiful and we were only a short drive away from Split, it was nice not to be in the centre of it. We are all hoping to bring our families back to Villa Maria!
Seven couples stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of our 9 day Croatian trip. The Villa was wonderful - very spacious, clean, and perfect setting. The host family went above and beyond for us. We had them cater a Croatian dinner one night and provide breakfast each day. Delicious. We also had them arrange a tour to KRKA Falls and transportation to/from Split (about a 20 minute drive into Split) during our stay.
The host family sincerely wanted us to have a great time and tried to anticipate everything. If you have an opportunity to book this Villa, I highly recommend you do so.
We came for a Long Weekend for a Hen Do, it was the perfect place to stay, not far from the airport, town or restaurants and beach bars.
We were picked up from the airport by Silvio and Joseph who were already there waiting for us. On the journey, Silvio was telling us all about the area and showing us where places were that we might need over the weekend. When we arrived Silvio showed us round the grounds (which are beautiful and have amazing views over Split and out to sea) and each of the apartments in the villa, which all had their own balcony's with the same amazing view, they were very clean, spacious, modern, very well equipped and really lovely with plenty of room for everyone. The pool area was a great space to all chill and sunbathe around, they had more loungers in another part of the garden so there was plenty of places to relax.
The family were so welcoming, they had even lead out drinks, meats, cheeses and bread for when we arrived.
Later on they cooked us a 3 course dinner, which was amazing, including soft drinks and wine, Maria cooked us the best chocolate cake, which went down a treat.
They were able to help out over the whole weekend with transfers and anywhere we planned to go, nothing was ever too much hassle for them and them and they really made us feel welcome.
I would highly recommend Villa Maria to anyone and will definitely be going back again!
Thank you so much.
Wow! Where do I even begin with this beautiful accommodation!
We arrived (a group of 12 girls on a hen) at Split airport to be greeted by the warm smiles of Silvio and Joseph who kindly carried our bags for us and drove us to Villa Maria.
When we arrived at the accommodation Silvio showed us around the three apartments. They were all absolutely beautifully decorated, spacious, modern and clean. Each apartment had air conditioning, its own kitchen, dining area and at least one bathroom. Each bedroom also had a fan. Anything you needed was there including hair dryers (very helpful for a group of girls) and Silvio had also stocked up the fridges with some soft drinks and some of his homemade wine! The apartments all had balconies with wonderful views across Split. The pool area of the villa was gorgeous and there were plenty of sun loungers for all of us! The water was also a great temperature!
After being shown around we had a delicious three course dinner cooked for us by the villa where we ate possibly the best chocolate cake we ever had (kindly made by Maria). Once again we were provided with plenty of soft drinks and wine.
During our stay Silvio and Joseph went out of their way to take us wherever we needed - including the supermarket and even late night pick ups from nights out! They were incredible hosts and we could not have asked for more!
The only thing I would have changed is that we stayed longer!! Thank you so much for an incredible long weekend and for making us feel so welcome!
It is like becoming a member of Silvio's family from the warm handshake at the airport to the embrace on leaving ,we could not have felt more welcome.
Each apartment (we took all 3) is particularly well equipped and each has a stunning view which gets better as you go up!
The pool may not be enormous but the kids in particular loved it . It is beautifully finished ,always in the sun and again has great views .
There is also a secluded sun deck area with plenty of umbrellas if you want shade and far enough away if you don't want to get splashed !
Silvio drove us to the large supermarket to stock up whenever we needed to go to save the " hike " up the steep hill back up to the villa .
He lent us parasols to take to the beach and recommended a great private boat trip which is certainly one of the best ways to see the beautiful islands .
One of the best meals we had on our holiday was when Silvio and his family cooked for us .
Basically you really feel that nothing is too much trouble.
