We stayed at this apartment for 6 nights in September 2015 and had a wonderful experience and would definitely return and indeed plan to do so in 2016.
The apartment is located on the top floor of a building of smaller apartments on the outskirts of the main Podgora resort in the area called Caklje. it is very close to the Hotel California. The main Podgora resort is a short walk along the shoreline (10 mins) or you can use the tourist train morning and evening if you don't want to walk. The apartment overlooks the small marina and there are stony beaches on either side of the marina; the water is crystal clear and very safe for sunbathing and swimming. Caklje is quite with a small local supermarket and 2 restaurants both of which were good. The apartment is spacious and has been recently renovated to a high standard. There is a large round table and 6 chairs on the balcony plus 2 sun loungers. The views from the balcony are superb.
Our hosts a young married couple were very welcoming and lived in a smaller apartment in the building so were very accessible and on hand if needed. The main resort of Podgora has some very good restaurants (Roko and More in particular were good) and also has a pedestrian only area with shops and bars. some of the bars also had entertainment in the evenings
We have been to Croatia many times (this was our 3rd pit stop on this holiday) and had driven by the area going to /from Split /Zadar airports on our way to Korcula or Dubrovnik but had never stayed in this area. I have to say this was a real find and we were delighted with the apartment - we will definitely go back. Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful stay.
