Hvar is a great place to visit and this apartment is a great place to stay. It is impeccably clean, well-appointed and located overlooking the sea with an outdoor patio with great views. (See accompanying photos taken from the patio). It is a brisk 15 minute walk to the center of the old-town on a paved path that runs along the sea so it is pleasant exercise. The Hula bar is close by so you can catch a drink but note the music plays until about 10pm most nights which I actually found enjoyable when I was not out myself. It is just down the steps to a nice, quiet beach. Finally, Katija, the hostess who lives on premises, is wonderful and accommodating. You cannot help but to have a good time in Hvar and at this apartment. I intend to return.
Amazing hosts, lovely apartment and get location. It was a good 15 min walk into town but along a flat walkway along the coast so no trouble at all.
We loved our time here.
Katija was a gracious host. The location was fantastic as it was only a short walk to the beach and a 10 minute walk to the main harbor. There was also a market to get groceries and restaurants within walking distance. The view were breathtaking. Beach towels were provided. There was no shampoo or toiletries as stated on the website.
Although the walk to town is more like 15 minutes unless you rush it, it's a very easy and pretty walk. Just don't try it at 8pm with all your suitcases as we did. There are also plenty of steps up to the apartment but the views are lovely, and the beach is still close enough to hear the lapping waves as you stand on the large balconies looking out.
We loved trying all the restaurants near the apartment, rather than going into town every time we wanted to eat out. All of them are good quality, especially Agava, literally 20 metres behind the house. Falko bar is lovely and so is the Podstine hotel cafe. Even Restaurant A La Pjat had great food and was not as expensive as expected.
Our host Katija was really kind, even providing some toys for our little boy to play with. The apartment is modern and really spacious, beds are huge and comfy and we had everything we needed.
We would love to return, to really relax and stay longer next time.
The flat is really big - 2 big bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a large kitchen/lounge/diner with 2 balconies! It was spotless inside and well stocked. The view from either balcony was amazing and was only a brief walk down some steps to the coast - there were a couple of small shingle beaches and access to the crystal clear water all around the coast from the rocks. It was a 10-15 minute walk into town round the coastal path where there are many, many places to eat and drink. Turn right on the coastal path and you quickly get to bar Falco, which is more chilled out than bar Hula Hula, which you can see from the flat. As mentioned in other reviews, the music from this stops at 10pm and the crowd disperse by 11pm. The flat is quiet with the windows and shutters closed but the only downside is that there is no aircon in the bedroom, only in the lounge. Katija was extremely helpful and very lovely. Her husband even gave us a lift to the ferry port in his boat on the last day, which was a really lovely and much appreciated touch. We would definitely stay here again.
This place is excellent in every way! Katija makes sure that you start with a perfectly clean apartment that has everything you could possibly need. There were 2 of us who stayed for 2 weeks and we had lots of room to spread out. All the rooms were large. Even a large foyer for us to put our bikes. Look in the pictures of the covered outdoor terrace off of the kitchen -- this is where you will try to spend most of your time!! We enjoyed having our meals and/or wine on this terrace as we watched the boats and people. Truly dreamy!
Katija treated us like family yet, at the same time, respected our privacy. She picked us up as well as returned us to the catamaran for our arrival/departure. She pointed out where to go for groceries (it is so close and convenient), breakfast,etc. She even gifted us with homemade marmalade and a bottle of a homemade non-alcohol drink.
Both of us are very "picky" people who are usually disappointed because "nothing is perfect". Let me assure you. If we return to Hvar, this is where we would stay again. This is perfect! If you are thinking about staying directly in central Hvar Town, think again. This place is just a short walk away. The walk itself is blissful and half the fun. This location, this owner, this view, and this island are ALL excellent!
