We have just returned from Villa Dol and absolutely loved it. There are very few places we would go back to, as we like to move on and explore new areas, but we genuinely hope to return soon. It is a beautiful house and has everything you will need to self cater, including a fantastic outdoor bbq. Ivana has thought of everything as a host and was wonderfully welcoming and friendly. The home was spotlessly clean and incredibly comfortable and beyond what we expected. The village of Dol has some lovely restaurants which you can easy walk to and Postira is a pretty town but you will need a car to explore the island. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

This is an amazing place! We wish we had been able to stay longer. The location is quiet and cute, the house is perfect for 6 guests, and the pool and outdoor patio are fantastic. Communication with the host was also great. Thanks Ivana!

Ivana was a wonderful host, she was very helpful with any questions we had prior and during our holiday. We were given a very warm welcome to the villa on arrival. The villa was just as stunning as it is in the pictures, very well equiped and very spacious. The restoration seems to have been done with lots of love and attention to detail. The outside dining and pool area were amazing, again well equiped with two tables (one under cover) sun loungers and enough seats to enjoy meals with friends and family. The view down to Postira from the villa is like a picture postcard and one that we never tired of throughout our stay. The slightly elevated location was so peaceful and extremely private but only a few minutes from the small town of Dol. Although small, Dol boasts 3 delicious restaurants, where the service and food were fantastic. We would definitely recommend Villa Dol for a quiet holiday on beautiful Brac, we can't wait to visit again!

The villa is in a beautiful, quiet location and has been beautifully decorated with unique and antique furniture. It has everything you could need for a relaxing break. There were welcome goodies - wine, olive oil, chocolates, fruit, coffee - and we were encouraged to make ourselves at home, picking herbs from the garden. Dol has three tavernas, all of which were good and within 400m of the villa. There's also a small supermarket. The tree in front of the villa provides some welcome shade, while the pool catches the sun all day. The pool is a good size and has a counter-current flow - and the wooden sun loungers are very comfy! The outdoor kitchen and dining area with BBQ is great. This is my first Airbnb booking and I was a bit apprehensive, but Ivana was great and quick to respond to my emails. I would love to go back to Villa Dol one day!

I live in Dubrovnik, where I was born. I enjoy sports, specially running and free climbing. I love animals and nature and very often I go for a walk with my dogs. I enjoy cooking and there is nothing more inspiring for me, then to wake up early in the morning and go to the market to buy fresh groceries.
I am the owner of the company "Adventure Dalmatia", which offers tourists a way the spend their vacation exploring the beautiful coast of the Adriatic sea. We specialise in organising hiking, kayaking and biking tours.
