“Clean villa in a developing neighbourhood.”
Reviewed September 14, 2015 for a stay in September 2015
people found this review helpful

The good points:
The villa is well equipped for a self-catering vacation. There is a lot of outdoor space that allows for dining on a couple of different levels. There is a BBQ area with dining as well as a private balcony for al-fresco dining. Indoors, the kitchen is well equipped with superior cookware. Off the kitchen is a large indoor formal dining area. The two bedrooms are spacious, the bathroom also contains a washing machine, blow dryer, extra towels etc.. The living room area is tastefully decorated.
The challenges:
The pool was too cold to use during our stay even thought it was 27-30 degrees during our stay. The next issue certainly wasn't the fault of the owners or villa, but we felt we lived beside a kennel facility. Croatians must be oblivious to noise pollution as during our stay there was no attempt to minimize the dogs barking by the owners or neighbours.
Dugi Rat offers very few facilities (other than two less than average supermarkets). Our biggest point of frustration was that the entire SE portion of the sea shore was building site which was not mentioned in any search engine searches due to the fact that the Croatian Tourist Board has optimized itself for all relevant searches of the "Dalmatian Coast".

Dear arbourstone,
Hereby we would like to thank you one more time for your stay and kind review regarding our villa in Dugi Rat. Appreciate your suggestion which is more than welcome. We were aware of the dog barking, and have talked with the owners but unfortunately, they were not keen to listen. We apologize for this.
Dugi Rat area is evolving every year, situation today is different than it was in time time of your stay. In case you decide to come back, we are sure you would find it significantly better than it was.
Truly hope this is not your last time in Croatia and we would be honored to help you finding another charming villa or a holiday home for your next holidays.
Warm and sunny regards from sunny Croatia!
Best regards, Orvas Team - Villa Živana
