This is a great location to stay in. The Old Town is expensive and touristy, it's so much better to stay out of the Old Town and use the cheap and efficient travel options to visit it. We were a group of 4 so a taxi was about the same price (about 70 kuna) as the bus fare for 4; hence we didn't use the bus. However the bus appeared a very convenient option with the stop close by and the regular timetable from early until late. Getting a taxi was easy as there was a free phone to use in the apartment and they seemed to come very quickly! On the way back all the drivers knew where the apartments were. We were welcomed to the apartments by the very friendly and enthusiastic Damir - what a lovely chap. He looked after us beautifully and the home made drinks were very welcome too. The apartment was clean, comfortable and well equipped. There's a PEMO shop nearby for stocking up on groceries, about a 5-10 minute walk, uphill on the way back so a backpack is recommended to avoid plastic bags cutting in to hands!! We used the pool for free at the Valamar, which is reasonable walking distance and we were very pleasantly surprised by how big and nice it was! Well worth a visit. Although the rooftop pool at Villa Antea has a lovely view and is great for a bit of sunbathing with comfortable facilities. The Babin Kuk area has its own little promenade with cafes and restaurants, within walking distance, which is cheaper than the Old Town, so it's quite nice to mix it up a bit and stay local some evenings. All in all we'd highly recommend Villa Antea.
