“Spacious and modern”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

We stayed 2 nights here in a very spacious and well appointed apartment. We were greeted by a young gentleman of 17 years who was very polite and helpful, showing us maps, giving us directions and suggesting restaurants. Both he and his sister made us very welcome. The apartment was very clean, modern and comfortable. Not within walking distance of the old town but there's a bus nearby if you don't have a car. Our apartment had 2 bedrooms and a large bathroom. Balcony off the living area. Great place to stay as it's only minutes (walking) from the water.

Highly recommend this place for any kind of stay - short, long, family, friends... We have just returned from 2 weeks in Zadar. We rented the biggest apartment of this villa on the ground floor with a separate entrance, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sitting room with big TV and DVD player, kitchen/dining room with fully equipped kitchen (including a dishwasher!), WiFi that was working pretty well (unlike some other places we stayed around the world). For the group of 6 that apartment was more than enough :-)) but we like to vacation in comfort! Apart from having all the comforts, it is also only 5 minutes walk from the beach - not the huge sandy monstrosity filled with screaming crowds but an intimate series of pebble spots along the cleanest sea I have ever seen. I would advise still to get swimming shoes, as there are some pretty big stones when you go into the sea (but no dangerous sea creature, do not worry!). However, the best feature of this villa is Maria and Simon - children of the owner who are running this place fabulously! They made this vacation very comfortable and enjoyable for us - gave all kinds of advice about what to see and where to go, treated us to the home-grown vegetables brought from their family farm as well as their grandfather's wine (which was really good!). Couple of times we had BBQ dinners together (cooked by Simon and the meat bought from their father's shop - very fresh and great quality!) - they became real friends for us. When we got into a small road accident (on our very first day on the way to the villa - Maria dropped everything and rushed to the place to help us sort it out. Well, you get the picture! If you chose Villa Zaratina, I am sure you will not regret!

Friends and I stayed here for two nights and were in a one bedroom apartment. I was sleeping on the fold out couch, which was surprisingly comfortable. My friends were in the large bedroom, with door opening onto the balcony. The apartment was clean and spacious with a balcony which had a view of the sea. It is relatively modern and has car parking, air con, and wifi. On arrival we were greeted by Simon, who manages the apartments with his sister during their school holidays. His English was fantastic and he gave us detailed recommendations of restaurants to try, sights to see, and driving directions. Simon also gave us a platter of fresh melon and a jug of red wine to enjoy in the sunshine. The only inconvenience we encountered was the lack of credit card facilities, meaning we had to go and withdraw cash to pay the bill with. Otherwise, this was one of our favourite places we stayed in Croatia.
