About Marina B

My name is Marina Bakota and my husband and I have been renting our family villa since 2010.

We have two young sons and leave 2 km away so we can assist you with anything needed.

Our villa Gorica is part of Stara Podstrana.

As inheritance, it was passed on from generation to generation in our family. It is as if its every rock had an impression of the exhausted, wrinkled arms of the worker who had built this dream house with love and patience. It withstood the burden of years, alone, with sorrow in its walls, waiting for the young hands to restore it to its well-deserved splendour.

Today it shines like never before. Close to Villa Gorica, it was sad to look at the old olive orchard of our fathers as it silently wept and looked around in shame, thinking whether its saplings would ever soar to the sun.

Today it is no longer sad, nor ashamed; today it proudly soars to the sky. To keep it company, we have planted new olive trees, so that the old olive trees can tell them their story and teach them everything.

There is an old saying:

"An olive tree is like a mother – if you leave it and forget it, it will always take you back with open arms when you return."

Why Marina B chose Podstrana

Villa Gorica is over 200 years old stone house that we renovated in 2009 with great love and care.

It is perfect for couples, families and group of friends.

It is located in tranquil setting of small village, yet only 10 min away from the beaches, shops, numerious restaurant and Split is only 20 min away.

We look forward to having you stay at our villa.

Fabulous villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We visited Croatia for the first time and stayed at this villa with our 11 year old son together with our two friends and their son. The villa was fabulous, very clean and well equipped and included a lovely veranda and heated pool. The owner was extremely helpful and arranged a contact for a days boat trip for us in addition to giving helpful advice on places to visit and eat. Fabulous organic restaurant at 5 min walk away. Beautiful villa with wonderful views, highly recommended. We wouldn't hesitate to revisit on a return trip to Croatia.
