About Lisa Willmott

Lisa and Roger bought the 2 apartments back in 2008 when they were first built. They live in London with their 3 children and have been coming back twice a year for holidays since 2008. They both have busy jobs, Lisa is a Finance Director and Roger is a Technology Director, so make use of the apartments to unwind with the family.

Lisa Willmott purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Lisa Willmott chose Promajna

In 2008 we came to Croatia on holidays and visited different places along the coast from Split to Dubrovnik. We fell in love with the Makarska Rivera - we thought it was one of the most beautiful coastlines we had seen in Europe. We discovered Promajana, a quiet fishing village in a great location, only a few minutes from Makarska, with its extensive shops ad restaurants, and decided to buy a place so we could come back. We all still love the place - it hasn't changed much over the last few years, and still retains its simplicity and charm. Its like a second home for the children!!

What makes this apartment unique

We love the fact that Promajna is great kid-friendly village. We can walk down to the beach, buy some fruit, pastries etc for breakfast from the stalls by the beach and have lunch at one of the beachside restaurannts. We have 3 kids under 10, but we can let them wander off on their own to get an ice-cream of go on the beach trampolines. We can stay in Promajna all week if we are feeling lazy, or drive to one of the many beautiful beaches and towns nearby if more adventurous.

The Makarska Riviera on the Dalmaltian coast. The stretch of coast line that meanders down from Split becomes more and more beautiful as you approach Makarska and its surrounding sea side villages. The sea is strikingly azure and you can see tempting beaches as you drive along the coast road! The little towns and villages dotted along the sea edge provide lovely places to wander around and there are restaurants and marinas, not to mention stunning views out to the islands of Brac and Hvar to mesmerise you. In the other direction, you'll be impressed by Mount Biokovo. Just 50 minutes from split airport, this is an easy piece of paradise to get to!

Lovely apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this apartment. The village of Promajna is charming with a beautiful beach and excellent facilities. The apartment is about 5 mins from the beach up a hill in a quiet corner and is clean comfortable and airy, with beautiful mountain and sea views from the balcony. The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend and certainly hope to return ourselves!

Great views of sea and mountains.

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is at the very southern edge of the village with terrific views of the sea and the mountains behind. It is on the fourth floor with no lift so a bit of a hike with suit cases. There is no vehicular access and a walk of about 400 meters uphill on a path is the way to reach the apartment. Parking is about 600 meters away on a piece of open land. Promajna feels safe and friendly so this is not a problem. The apartment is very spacious, clean and well equipped in the kitchen area. Bedding was inadequate. There was a single fitted sheet on the large double bed so one of us spent the fortnight sleeping on the mattress. We rang the local rep who said he would supply a new sheet but it never happened. Sheets and towels were not changed after the first week despite our expectation that they would be. One bath towel and one hand towel each for two weeks was disappointing. We had a problem with the lock to the apartment door which was extremely difficult to get the key in and took great strength to lock and unlock. We worried that we might get locked out because the barrel seemed to be failing. The local rep said he would come and repair it but he never showed. We were also unable to get the television to work. Again the rep said he would look at it but he failed to appear. We liked Promajna which has a good beach, a selection of restaurants and a little supermarket, a bakery and a fruit and veg stall. Promajna is well located with good access to the A1 motorway via a 4 km tunnel through the mountain. Roads are good quality and well signed. We enjoyed the coastal path which runs from village to village along the sea shore and gives access to small secluded bits of beach. Had a great holiday. The problems highlighted above just took the gloss off the accommodation. Customer service provided by the local rep was the non-existent.

Owner's Response: We have taken your comments very seriously and immediately contacted the agent. Unfortunately he was very sick the week that you were there but this is no excuse. We have now added our details to the instructions, so that we will be responsible for also fulfilling any clients issues. We have asked immediately that he upgrades the bedding so there are spares when we have guests, this is totally unacceptable. We have also asked him to replace the lock and replace the television of it can not be repaired. We are very sorry this customer service by the local rep has impacted your stay, but would like to think that this is not reflection on the quality of the accommodation or property, which you state yourself is clean, spacious, well located and well equipped. We have rented our properties in Promanja for 11 years and never had a bad review or complaint, so will take this very seriously and will rectify immediately.

Loved it

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here a few weeks ago for our summer family holiday with my husband and our two children 5 years and 3 years. It was perfect for us and we enjoyed our stay there very much. The apartment was modern, very clean and well equipped. We went to the beach every day as my children loved it and was only a few minutes walk to get to. We ate out most meal times but on a few occassions cooked in the apartment as it had everything you needed. We definately stay there again and have recommended it to our friends and family.

Ferienwohnung am Strand, Promajna (near Makarska)

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten Gelgenheit im Juni 3 Wochen in diesem Appartment zu verbringen. In der Tat nicht für ältere Gäste geeignet, da eine Anfahrt an die Wohnung mit dem Auto nicht möglich ist und ca. 200 Meter (bergauf)mit allem Gepäck oder Einkäufen notwendig ist. Parken ist in der Vorsaison kein Problem wird aber mit zunehmender Zeit Richtung Hauptsaison schwieriger. Die Wohnung ist sauber, modern und ruhig am Ortsrand gelegen. Die Lage im zweiten Obergeschoss erlaubt eine herrliche Sicht in beide Richtungen - Berge und Meer. Sonne von Morgens bis zum Nachmittag. Wir haben uns 3 Wochen lang sehr wohl gefühlt.
