We arrived in Hvar by car and found our apartment easily by following the instructions provided, it was raining and we had some 'fun' getting there dry. Our hostess, Mates, was very helpful and nothing was too much trouble for her to help us with our questions or needs. The restaurant recommendations were good and our driving day trip was enhanced by Matea's local knowledge and suggestions. Would recommend highly to any visitor to the lovely island of Hvar.

Room Tip: Our two bedroom apartment was enhanced by an ensuite to the double bedroom. So 2 bathrooms. :-)

We loved everything about the Olive Tree. The two bedroom apartment was perfect for two couples. It had two bathrooms, a kitchen and a huge lovely deck with beautiful views of the town, harbor, gardens, and the fortress. The location is just a few minutes walk to the town square, restaurants and beaches . The hosts were really friendly (brought us a beautiful plate of grapes from their backyard vineyard) and so accomodating (they allowed us to stay later in the day so we could spend the day at the beach and come back and shower before hopping on the evening ferry). After spending a few days in Hvar and looking around town, we felt like we couldn't have found a better all-around place to stay than the Olive Tree.

Lovely set of apartments with beautiful views across the town. Yes there are a lot of steps but completely worth it to be away from the noise of Hvar whilst still being in the centre of town.

The hosts were overwhelmingly accommodating, organising cheap boat hire, providing recommendations and finding us alternative accommodation when we decided to stay on for longer in Hvar (Olive Tree was booked).

The apartments themselves are comfortable, immaculate and with excellent bathrooms.

Best accommodation we stayed in throughout our trip to Croatia. You will not be disappointed!

Stayed for 3 nights and wished I'd booked more. Really nice hosts even gave us homemade wine to drink on the patio while we watched the sun go down. Very clean and bright rooms. Yes there was steps but not many and you can walk down on the flat but it does take longer. Nicest accommodation we had in Croatia and would go back if staying in Hvar. Turn left instead of right and you get down quickly to the beach. Plus good air con and double glazing - no noise at night!

We only had a night here and wished we had longer! The bedrooms were clean and tidy and the hosts were so friendly. The shower had good pressure. The terrace has the most beautiful view across Hvar. It's very close to the main square and port, just down quite a few stairs. We knocked on the wrong door at first because it's not signposted.

Apartments Olive Tree is located across from the main square of Hvar town, giving you a great view from the rooms. There is an outdoor patio where you can eat while looking at the town, the fortress, and the islands. It is about a five-minute walk into town, less than 10 minutes walk to the ferry stop, but you are in a quiet area away from the noise of the main square. The owners were very helpful in providing information on how to get to Hvar, and they sent a detailed map to the apartments from the ferry terminal and bus station. We had no problem finding the house, thanks to the map and photos of the location. The owner's daughter speaks excellent English and always promptly responded to emails. No advance deposit was required, only periodic confirmations that we were still planning on showing up. We stayed on Hvar in early May, the weather was great, and it was not too crowded. We heard that it gets very crazy during the summer.
