Vis Villa is in the ideal seaside location at Bargujac on the southeast side of Island Vis. Vis natives say that this is the most beautiful on the island. Enter Vis Villa down the lane through our young AVOCADO grove (the largest in Croatia). Vis Villa now qualifies as an Agrotourism destination. It means that you will be staying in a beautiful working avocado plantation. You can participate in the day to day farming operation, or not, as you wish. When avocados are at their prime, enjoy some amazing guacamole. You can read in our reviews that Vis Villa is a great choice for your vacation. But before you book please read the listing in full and note that we do not accept children under 5 years old, and no pets or smoking are allowed at Vis Villa. How can life be better? Walk just 25 meters through our cool, shady green pine grove to our private swimming dock to enjoy the most remarkable pristine, clear turquoise water. Just relax in the warm, therapeutic sea water, exercise or get to know the sea life with great snorkeling. If you wish, rinse off in the outdoor warm shower after swimming. A small pebbly beach where children can walk into the water is another 50 meters. There are two sandy beaches nearby with either a 5 minute walk or a 15 minute walk, or kayak. Neither are accessible by car. KAYAKING AND STANDUP PADDLE BOARD: Vis Villa has 2 double seat Kayaks and a standup paddle board for our guests to use at no extra charge. Paddle to explore the seaside, to nearby restaurants, islands, the green cave and sandy beach Zaglav. On those few days when the sea is not great, enjoy our outdoor, heated, salt-water SWIMMING POOL with or without the swimming current, either under the cover or open with the cover retracted. Please let us know when you want to use the pool. Please shower thoroughly with soap and rinse before using the pool. Do not go into the pool after being in the sea without showering thoroughly. Invisible sea organisms on suits and bodies can change the pool chemistry dramatically. Use separate swim suits for the pool and the sea. Don’t apply sunscreen before entering the pool. Sunscreen just washes off in the chlorine in the pool water and leaves an oily scum. Vis Villa is a large two story house with expansive terraces. We have two apartments (40M and 60M) that can each accommodate 4 guests. Two extra bedrooms are available at Vis-Villa that rent only as additional space as needed for the 40M and 60M apartments. Although it may be a little confusing, we had to list each apartment several times on this website in order to provide all combinations of apartments and extra bedrooms for our guests to book. We hope that explains why you may see listings for 40M, 40M + 1 bdrm, 40M + 2 bdrms, 60M, 60M + 1bdrm, 60M + 2bdrms, or both apartments and bedrooms in listing Vis-Villa + 2 bdrms. Choose the one that fits you best. Our 40 M is a studio apartment with outside private access. It has one queen size bed with a comfort adjustable mattress, and a pull out couch that makes into a bed for 2, and a mini- kitchen, and eating area.. The bathroom has a roomy shower. It is ideal for one couple and children. Our open air traditional grill, modern gas grill, and outdoor kitchen space are available for use of guests. Enjoy your meals on the outdoor, shaded terrace also with the magnificent sea views. We usually give our guests a little orientation driving tour of the island ending at Vis town where they can rent transportation and go to the grocery store. Then they have seen an introduction to the interesting places to visit and can make their transportation decisions more clearly. The nearest village is Podstražje which has 2 very good restaurants and a grocery store within 10 minutes walking. There are also good restaurants in Rukavac, about 2km. Some restaurants now offer free transportation. There is a fresh vegetable delivery truck that comes to our driveway nearly every day. Fresh bread is delivered every day. Larger grocery stores are in Vis town and we go to Vis often to play tennis and buy supplies. There is an occasional bus from Podstrazje to Vis and/or you can go with us in our car. Scooters, cars, and bikes are available for rent in Vis. Our apartments are fully supplied with equipment and utensils for cooking. Modern bathrooms have roomy showers and are equipped with hair dryers. TV, high-speed internet, ceiling fans and heating are provided Ecological seasonal fruits and vegetables from our garden are free to guests We provide a Welcome Basket of goodies on arrival, including local wine. Children over 5 years old are welcome, but sorry no pets and no smoking on our property. Secure parking. TENNIS: Enjoy a match or practice on courts in Vis town HIKING: Explore trails nearby for spectacular views, picking local herbs, enjoying the aromas, clean air, and antiquities of Vis. John and Pat, the American/Croatian owners speak English and Croatian and live in the Villa. We look forward to hosting you in our villa. We have been hosting guests here for 16 years. It gives us great pleasure to share with guests our unique perspective of the history, culture and beauty of this special island, and our superb location.

Getting around
The question about the need for rental cars at Vis-Villa is certainly a personal decision for each of our guests. We can make a good case for renting a car or scooter to go out and discover more of the island restaurants, beaches, and attractions. Some of our guests have been completely satisfied without a car here. We usually go to Vis (about 9km from Vis-Villa) once a day to play tennis and buy supplies. There is an occasional bus from Podstrazje to Vis, or you can go with us in our car. We don't suggest renting a car in Split as the round trip on the ferry for a car is about 82 Euros. There are several car, scooter, and bike rental agencies in Vis. Scooters rent for about 25 to 30 Eurosday. We suggest Ionios tourist agency.
How to get there
We usually give our guests a little orientation driving tour of the island ending at Vis town where they can rent transportation and go to the grocery store. Then they have seen an introduction to the interesting places to visit and can make their transportation decisions more clearly.
