From our first email to Rastko and Slavica, the service we received was 5 star. I would recommend this accommodation for that reason alone. They are lovely people who will do everything they can to ensure your visit is as good as it can be.
However, there are many other reasons to choose this villa.
The position close to the old town is great. It's very, very peaceful even although it's in a busy residential area. Yes, as the other reviewers have said, there are lots of steps. But the town is surrounded by steps so there is no getting away from them! One tip though - walking down/up the steps to the Pile entrance to the town is pretty tough. However, if you walk from the accommodation to the top road (where the parking is) you can enter the old town via one of the other entrances. It's a slightly longer walk but fewer steps. You also miss the crowds this way!
The room was very clean, simply furnished and had a lovely view. The air con was brilliant! The beds are huge and very comfortable. Satellite TV is also available. I think there was Wi-Fi although we didn't use it.
The garden is a lovely spot to have breakfast and relax whist enjoying the views. There are sun loungers as well. Ensure you take mosquito spray though.
Breakfast was adequate. It was a typical 'holiday' breakfast of ham and cheese, with cereal, juice, fruit etc. Nothing to get excited about but absolutely fine. Rastko very kindly gave us some fresh pomegranate one morning from the garden which was delicious.
I'm not sure what their position is on self catering, but there was a kitchen (where breakfast is served) with cooker, fridge, dishwasher etc.
Down sides?? It was very hot this week and it would have been lovely to have a pool to dip into to cool down. However there are many beaches so it's not an issue.
So, all in all, a highly recommended B&B.
