I visited Zadar with my husband and 16 year old son, the old town was around 30min walk from our apartment but there is a regular bus service (No. 7 that takes you to the old town in 10mins). The apartment was clean and the balcony was a good size with a seaview. Our hosts were very kind and left fresh vegetables on our doorstep. The outdoor pool in Zadar was great fun
We found that place perfect for a short vacation. Clean, calm, well-furnished apartman, balcony with sea-view. We didn't meet the owner, but he had prepared everything for our arrival and pleasant stay.
