“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed July 21, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our stay here was absolutely wonderful and I cannot say enough about this rental. Mirka was wonderful as she met us at the docks and led us up to our apartment and was so very friendly to our family. The apartment was perfectly appointed with modern furniture and new appliances and the views were beautiful. The place really turned out much better than even what the pictures show. The apartment was perfectly clean as well. One of my pet leaves is having my socks turn black while walking on floors, and this was not a problem here. Also, the apartment was perfectly quiet, especially the bedrooms being towards the side/back of the house away from the sea, even at night with a bustling scene on the Riva below. We, including our young children, had no problems sleeping.

The location is perfect as it's almost right above the ferry dock above all the great restaurants (which is great on the morning we had to catch our catamaran to Split). It's a three minute walk to the main square and all the restaurants and cafes there. The grocery store and pekarna (bakery with lots of breakfast goods) is another minute beyond that. The one warning is that there are a lot of stairs to get up to the apartment, but if you're in acceptable shape this is not a problem; at the same time, stairs is pretty much a fact of life in Hvar.

In the end all of the perfection was topped off by the views. At night you can see the boats in the harbor, St. Mark's tower, and the Fortress lit up above town. One of our favorite activities was just sitting on the balcony watching the boats coming in and out of the harbor.

“Exceptional- look no further for a perfect stay in Hvar”
Reviewed October 8, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Apartment Taurus is perfectly located in Hvar Town, directly above the port where the passenger ferries come in.

The apartment is large, tastefully furnished and spotless. The kitchen is larger than average and is complete with all the necessities. It has both a fridge AND a freezer which is a real bonus for those who like to cook (or store ice cream)!

The verandah looks out over the Harbor and up to the fort. A perfect spot to relax and watch the comings and goings of life in Hvar.

The bed is very comfy and lends itself to a good night's sleep.

There is also a washing machine and drying rack, for us a godsend as we had been traveling on holiday for weeks.

A special mention of our hosts Josko and Mirka. It is usually the people that you meet who make your journey so memorable. Josko and Mirka are warm and gracious hosts. We really appreciated their support when we arrived very early off the ferry from Korcula and Mirka allowed us to drop our luggage and worked double time to have the apartment ready. Later on in the evening Mirka made us a most delicious apple pie. Josko is interesting and engaging, he provided lots of information about Hvar and Croatia in general. Josko is a very good conversationalist.

You are close to everything; bars, restaurants, public transport (bus, ferry, taxi). There is a supermarket, bakery and farmers market just off the main square and adjacent to St Stephens church.

As is the case with most accommodations you will need to climb some stairs to reach it, but worth it.

Perfect hosts, wonderful apartment in a lovely part of the world....exceptional.
