The property:

Villa Kairos is a modern waterfront villa on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia set in a sunny west-facing position and away from any traffic noise providing for a peaceful and picturesque setting. The fully air-conditioned villa is split into three apartments with two available to rent together comfortably accommodating up to eight people.

There are many different areas to put your feet up and relax including cushioned sun-lounges on the large balcony with panoramic sea-views, garden sun-loungers, 3-person swing chair and the 2 person hammock. There are two outdoor 8-seater dining areas with one being located on the patio and the other in the waterfront garden. These can both be shaded from the sun and are great to enjoy while cooking on the traditional stone BBQ. A waterfront shower in marble stone with an oversized rain-style shower head is located in the garden which is great for rinsing off after a dip in the sea.

What makes this villa unique

The sea view and enjoying the sunset while sipping on a good Croatian wine is unforgettable. Being literally on the beachfront is a big benefit too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 2014

Our holiday at Villa Kairos has been very satisfactory. We have enjoyed this villa and it’s facilities. Wonderful location and a perfect view of the setting sun. The garden has been renamed The Library. We have all been reading a lot while enjoying the sun and lazy days throwing ourselves in the sea. Thank you

Great villa/apartments. Very well equipped with high quality fittings and furniture inside and outside. First time we’ve always had a good nights sleep due to the quiet and efficient aircon and the very comfortable beds. This alone makes a huge difference as we’re not tired during the day. Great location as near to shops and restaurants.

We all loved the villa. It was great to have the sea literally on our doorstep. The sea is warm and lovely and clean and clear. We really enjoyed snorkeling. It is our first time in Croatia and we have been debating where it comes in our list of foreign places we’ve visited. For some it is first, for others a close second behind France. Most Croatian people we have found friendly and helpful, some we have found to be abrupt or even rude! We enjoyed our trip to the waterfalls and also had an excursion to a “three Island trip” with a visit to the Blue Lagoon. As mentioned, the villa is lovely. Great facilities, clean and fresh. The air-conditioning has been used a lot and has been a refuge on really hot days. Overall we have enjoyed our time here and would certainly like to come back. Forgot to mention how well organized everything is. Zoran is a great help in welcoming you to the villa.

We had a fantastc week, weather was hot but also stormy. The house was lovely and well positioned by the sea. We enjoyed the kayaks and were very grateful for the air-conditioning. Hired two cars and did a day trip to Split and some of the group went to Krka National Park and enjoyed it. We also took a trip to ‘Mistika’ on a day trip to Blue Lagoon etc. This was good value and v. enjoyable. Do take the ferry to Trogir, it’s lovely and a lot easier than going in the car. Trogir is very pretty and quaint, nice than Split.

Pretty good

  • 4 of 5

This was my first booking with OD.

The owner was very helpful and responded to emails promptly and helpfully. Check in and out was easy. The sea front location is good and the local Tommy supermarket is a 7 min walk. It has good bread, cheese, fish and meat but is not great for fruit and veg which are better in the city mkt or the Kaufland by the airport. There is also a water taxi to Trogir 5 mins from the villa. Kairos 1 (the main villa) is well appointed with a large living area, terrace and comfortable bedrooms. The bathroom is well equiped but very small and would have been difficult for 6 people. The kitchen is really not much more than a galley and can only accommodate 1 person. We like our food and catered for 4 but only by using the BBQ. We didn't eat out locally but did have a really good meal at Don Nino in Trogir. There is good on site parking although the entrance was very tight for our V70 - the trick was to use a neighbours drive for extra space.

We were there in late September and the traffic from the mainland to the Island could be very bad as there is only one narrow route with a sharp hairpin that was effectively one way for vans and anything bigger. In the summer we were told it could take 90mins to get off Ciovo island and onto the mainland which we could understand. That said you could do most things by foot, bike, moped or boat if you wanted to.

I cycle a lot in the UK and found that Croatian drivers are not really used to cyclists and don't give them much space. There are a couple of reasonable and hilly 50km road routes inland as long as you make sure you go up the quiet roads and down the busy ones. You can go further as well if you want.

The outskirts of Split were grim and the centre attractive but crowded, we went by moped to make parking easier. Krka was stunning but busy. Sibenik was second to Trogir, you can only get into St Nicholas' fort from the sea so get a boat or take swimming gear. We hired a boat in Okrug and had a good trip around Solta Island (the Blue Lagoon is massively over rated) finding some lovely secluded bays and rocks to jump off.

Overall, we didn't think that Croatia was particularly cheap but the people were friendly and the sea was stunningly clean.

In summary, a very good stay. Don't be put off by the downsides as I have noted them so you aren't taken by surprise rather than to deter you as, overall, the upsides outweigh the downsides.

The perfect house for a nice holiday!

  • 5 of 5

A great house with everything you need for a nice and relaxing holiday.

We were 6 adults and two kids and it was something for everybody. And short walk to restaurants, cafes and shops. The beach right outside the garden!!

What a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The property more than lived up to the expectations created by the description from the owner. Real care has been taken to provide everything for a great holiday. There were many items that would not be expected in an ordinary holiday rental such as canoes, bikes, hammock, wonderful sun loungers, beach towels, garden furniture and much more. This is no ordinary holiday let, it's a super one. It was extremely clean and well set out.

You couldn't be any closer to the sea without being in it! Brilliant. The sea was beautifully clear and had abundant fish life. Snorkelling and swimming in the sea was something we all really loved. It was easy to hire a motor boat to travel a bit further afield.

Local restaurants, supermarkets, ATMs were just a few minutes walk away. No problem getting the fresh bread for breakfast each day. Meals in restaurants were delicious and a very good price.

All the family, eight of us, loved our stay. The neighbours and locals were very friendly.

Boat ferries to and from Trogir made life very easy.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Sarah, who responded promptly and in great detail to questions.

Zoran, who looked after the property was a very nice chap.

Would and have recommended Villa Kairos to friends. A brilliant place to have a wonderful holiday

Very comfortable seaside villa

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as photographed; spacious, comfortable and literally a stone's throw from the sea.

The property was scrupulously clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay in Villa Kairos very much.

Ideal location for a family with young children .

  • 5 of 5

The location was superb for our family which included 2 children aged 3 + 6. They could play safely in the garden , where they enjoyed watching out for lizards/gekkos. When we opened the gate we were on the beach - Ideal for frequent swims. A short walk in either direction and there were restaurants .Furniture inside fine but not too new so good for a family with children . Plenty of nice outside tables for dining and sunbeds , hammock etc. Zoran , who met us at the property, was most informative and very helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, thankyou.

A perfect place for families :)

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived at the house, we must admit, we were a bit nervous. Could this place really be as good as it seemed? It turned out that, yes, it could! First of all, the garden is fantastic! Many different seating areas; with/without sun and with/without view. The beach is also literally right outside :) We enjoyed the sunset there every single night. The house is general was very welcoming, clean and in order. Things seemed new and if not, well taken care of. The kitchen is very well equipped, there are even plates and such for children as well.

We were three families staying there, two families (with children) upstairs and one (the grand-parents) downstairs. The flat downstairs is quite small (no "living-room", but a kitchen, a nice bathroom and a big bed room), but perfect for instance if someone the group would like to live a bit more separated from the rest. The grand-parents lived there, and then had the opportunity to sleep in even though the small children were awake upstairs;)

When you arrive at the house, a nice man will meet you and show you around. He can also help you if you should need it during your stay. There is also very a very thorough information packet.

We should mention that a man and a woman live in another apartment which is connected to the house, but this was no problem at all. We hardly saw them during the whole week, and the were just nice and calm people.

I must also mention the owner (Sarah). I have never in my life met a more service-minded person than her. Incredibly nice and helpful! We didn't actually meet her in person, but you feel like you get to know her still, via e-mails and telephone.

I will not hesitate to come back, or to recommend it to others! Both because of the house itself, but also because of the nice customer service.

Best regards, the Aamot families.

Villa Kairos is located in Okrug Gornji on the Island of Ciovo which is connected to the mainland via a bridge. The village of Okrug Gornji is a short walk by foot and offers supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, a pharmacy, doctor, dentist, post office, bank, hairdresser and bakery. 200 meters along the beachfront from Villa Kairos begins a long stretch of beach know as the Okrug Gornji Riviera. Dotted along this beach are cafes, bars, restaurants...a great place to watch the sunset. At the point where the Riviera starts is also a small marina from which a boat shuttle runs to and from Trogir every 15 minutes from early morning until midnight which is a novel and enjoyable way to get to and from Trogir. Alternatively, you can drive 3.5km to Trogir where you will find plenty of parking. Trogir is reputedly the most picturesque town on the Dalmatian Coast and a Unesco Heritage Town. It boasts a world class marina, beautiful buildings, forts, cathedrals, and plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.

Villa Kairos is also conveniently only 10km from Split Airport however, not under the flight path.

With so many different choices of things to do in and around the area there's something for everyone......enjoy lazing on the beach directly in front of the villa, explore ancient Trogir and Split (both Unesco), drive the scenic coast to Makarska or Primosten, taking a ferry boat or private boat to Hvar/Brac/Solta Islands and the Blue Caves, wreck dive, jet ski, water-ski, quad bike Ciovo, swim in the waterfalls of Krka National Park or enjoy some wine-tasting at a local vineyard. You can also explore Ciovo Island using the two bicycles and two tandem kayaks of Villa Kairos.
