Apartment situated below the fortress Spanjola with the central position and view on the beautiful Hvar harbour and Pakleni islands!
“A great place, pictures can not reflect the real impression as the pictures can expect. Ivana & Lorenzo are very eager hosts that leave nothing to be desired. The offer of the house's olive trees to snack on (delicious) or pomegranate to taste, but also the offer of a temporary cleaning of the apartment, perfect. The equipment of the apartment left nothing to be desired. With fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, good beds, reserved parking, stunning views of the harbor ......... It was very good H & B”
Cosy studio apartment located on the first floor, with beautiful panoramic view of the sea and the bay. Open kitchen (2 hot plates, dishwasher, microwave, freezer, electric coffee machine). Shower/WC. Underfloor heating. Smart TV (Netflix, youtube...). Wifi and air conditioning. 250 m to the supermarket Lidl. 3 min to the beach by car. 3 km away from Opatija center.
“We chose this place to celebrate our 8th anniversary. It's a double anniversary: the day we first met (12/31/2011), and also the day we got married (12/31/2016). Our plan was to arrive to Stjepan & Suzana's place from another AirBnB, where we spent a week before. We were traveling by bus, and Stjepan made himself available by providing helpful tips to assure a smooth arrival. He asked permission to offer activities for the New Year's Eve, all the while not being intrusive at all. He was responsive, informative and pleasant. He picked us up in Opatija with his car, which was really generous and helped accelerate our check-in. This also gave us an opportunity for a quick chit-chat which was great. On day #1 we used their laundry washer + drier (thanks very much!), as we usually travel light. When we arrived into the apartment, we were greeted by his wife Suzana, a bottle of wine, a plate of chocolate cakes and a note "Happy Anniversary" written in Croatian. Us being a gay couple, we don't get to see that a lot and we were very appreciative. Our initial impression was that the apartment appears smaller than on the photos. However, everything else was above average, and honestly we did not want to leave. I can't really put my finger on it, but it was probably the view + the amenities + the hosts' personality? Me being a home cook (and we brought our own wok!) we found ourselves just staying in, cooking & eating, lazying around, drinking wine all day... and generally feeling like we're on a proper holiday & having the best time of our life. We cooked fish, veal, mussels, made sandwiches using their toaster. The dishwasher was great. Plenty of cookware, cutlery, utensils, plates, glasses, and whatever you can think of. There was some coffee + spices in the kitchen, which we also re-stocked several times. Lidl (the grocery store) is literally 250m up the street, and a small wine shop is only 50m away. Since it was the New Year holidays, shops were closed on our arrival. But Suzana kindly provided tomato sauce, which was the only missing ingredient for a meal. Unfortunately, I did not end up using it, but we cooked everything else almost the whole time. The view was outstanding, not only from the room, but also from the roof top. We ended up going to the roof 3-4 times a day (maybe even more), and could not stop romanticizing how great would it be to come here in Summer, when we could use the pool. The cold (some might say freezing) weather did not stop us. We found the apartment warm enough even when weather outside was windy and cold. We did not use the a/c for heating at all; the room was warm enough. When we were not in the apartment, we went out for walks. Us being avid hikers, we thought the walks were too short, even when going to Opatija on foot. Spending the New Years' Eve from our room was also great - we turned off the lights and just enjoyed watching the fireworks in the entire bay. For a tiny bit, we felt like we were in Rio! I cannot say enough about Suzana and Stjepan. Their service is exceptional. I know it takes a lot to make the experience seem effortless, but they did somehow manage to do it. All I can say is they set the bar really high for all AirBnB hosts in the Kvarner/Opatija region, and we recommend this place to our friends, and will continue to do so. Secretly we're hoping to come visit again some day!”
The apartment is set in a beautiful and tranquil bay Parja, outside of town (about 3,5km Google map : https://goo.gl/maps/ei6Pw3d5cg62 ) Pine forests, olive trees, blue crystal clear sea and singing crickets are the treasures of this quiet bay. Being away from the crowds. Peaceful location, amazing scenery. Steps down to the private deck on the sea. Great location for relaxing, swimming and walking or cycling.

“Stunning! Communication with host was great. Location is fantastic, from the port and Vis Town approximately 3.7 km, 10 minute drive, 20 min cycle, 45 min walk. A car on Vis is highly recommended, to see the island. Ferry is easy from Split, can rent a car on the island or scooters, but Vis has many big mountains to climb so car is recommended. The apartment is located in a an area of some 5 separate buildings, a small "village" type of feel. It is located on the bottom level of the hosts Grandparents home. But feels very isolated at the same time. Virtually no noise from above, private spaces separated by roofing. The street parking is some 200 meters from the apartment, down a dirt path, be mindful with big/lots of luggage. Absolute magic landing right on the water with a ladder into the sea, perfect for sun lounging and the bay is great with a rocky bottom. They provide inflatable items as well for floating. Great for snorkeling and fishing as well. 2 separate outside deck areas, and the fire pit is great for cooking, especially stone cooked pizza! Inside apartment is a good size, 2 people was a good number. Kitchen well sticked, WiFi was very patchy, best connection was out on the front deck, not so good inside. Many English speaking channels on the tv. Bed was comfortable and big. The hosts attention to detail is great, even have a curtain on the door to keeps flies out and screens on the windows to keep bugs out. AC worked great. The apartment is located literally right next to the Former Yugoslavian Military Base with tunnels, bunkers and submarine hanger. There's many grocery stores in Vis Town, as well as fish shop, butcher and fruit and veg shop. Spent 1 week there and wanted to stay another week, it is a sensational Airbnb.”
