“A very happy stay in Brela at Abuela's”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

We needed just one last night to stay at the end of our 2-week stay in Croatia and found this little gem of a place by Tripadvisor recommendations. We enjoyed every second of our stay, from the friendly and warm welcome (with drink and snacks) , the fresh and clean apartment, the wonderful beach at the end of the steps and the really nice dinner at their recommended restaurant nearby. We stayed at the beach next day as long as possible before hitting the road to the airport, and our only regret is that we could not stay longer.

Abuelas Beach House is something extra, the location and the wiew is something extra. It is a bit hard to find, but if you text or call them, they will meet you by the road and guide you. Brana will easily carry your bags all the steps down the hill to the house. Anna and Brana have a very easy and relaxed way of welcoming you at your visit, and believe me you will feel welcome, especially if Brana brings out his home made grappa. Abuelas Beach House has only 3 rooms, of which one is a studio, where we stayed for two nights. All rooms has a fantastic view overlooking the ocean. This place is not for disabled or family's with small children, it is over 200 steps down to the beach. Close by there are several good restaurants. Brana and Anna showed us the next room they are renovating, it is on the top floor, and absolutely fantastic. It will hopefully be ready for use next summer... Book it and you will not regret it.

This place is something extra, it has a soul. Thank you Anna and Brana for two fantastic days.

Room Tip: Book the studio if you are only a couple.

This was the most friendly welcome we received in croatia. We were greeted as if old friends, but were never intruded upon. We had a welcome drink and snack and admonished for carrying our own bags. When we asked advice for activities the information was immediate, calls made and booking sorted. A rafting trip and restaurant trip required transport and we felt safer for this being booked for us. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen a convenience which we didn't need to use. There was a lovely informal beach cafe down the steps and to the left, the garlic scampi is what I would call langoustine, they were wonderful We would have liked to hire bikes to cycle along the front but we were there too early in the season, but walking did us good. The decor is colourful and somehow really fits with location! The view is fab and the steps down to the sea are really not arduous.

When we arrived, we were amazed by everything: the stunning view, the clean and comfortable room (adriatic studio) and especially the warm welcome from Anna and Brane. Those two really gave an extra dimension to our vacation. Always open for a good conversation and always wanting to help us, awesome! We won't forget our evenings at the patio, cosy laughing and talking about life! Furthermore, the area of Brela was mindblowing. A must see when you go to Croatia!

We enjoyed 5 nights in appartment Tango. The appartment was very clean and had a great terrace with amazing seaview. Since durring our stay the guests of the other two appartments were changing we had the opportunity to see the other appartments. They also looked very nice. Especially the seaview from the balcony of Caipirinha was stunning. As already mentioned by other reviewiers you really feel welcome at this place.
Beside the beautifull beaches and the sea nearby Brela there a lots of great places u can visit.

Leaving Abuela`s beach house we decided unanimously that we will return to this fantastic place.
Thx to Ana and Brane, hope to seeing u next year again.

We stayed in the 4 person apartment and it was such a wonderful place to stay, the owners were so welcoming and friendly and really went out of their way to be helpful and ensure we had a great stay. The accommodation is clean, spacious and offers everything you need and the views are amazing. It is around 25 minutes walk to the famous Brela beach but the walk is stunning with plenty of places to stop for a drink or swim. The town is about 40 minutes walk away but if you want a peaceful stay out of the busy centre then this is certainly the place for you.

Our family of 4 stayed for a week in Apartment Tango and had the most relaxing time. The apartment was clean, spacious and uniquely decorated. The views from the terrace are amazing. We had read about Ana's famous breakfast, so were gently woken each day by the sound of breakfast being laid up outside. Breakfast did not disappoint!
Anna and Brana were very welcoming and made us feel like we were their only guests. Brana was happy to swap fishing stories with my husband over a beer or 2!
We will certainly be looking to make a return trip.
