Fantastic holiday with a really warm welcome

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect holiday apartment for our family of five. Great location near to the sea, and lovely views from the balcony. The apartment had everything we needed. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and went out of their way to ensure we had a fantastic stay. The traditional Croatian dinner they cooked for us and the guests of Apartment 2 was delicious - it was a great evening. They went above and beyond what we could have expected to ensure our stay was a success, helping us whenever we encountered any difficulties on our holiday. Top tip: getting around by boat is a lot easier than getting around by car (there was just one bridge leaving the island and so a lot of traffic which you could avoid if you got the very regular and convenient boats instead).

Lovely apartment, stunning setting

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with the Penga family which included a delicious fish barbecue cooked by Caroline. The apartment was spacious and clean, with a beautiful sea view from the terrace. The Penga family were very welcoming and made us feel very much at home, which was lovely as we had a young baby. There is lots to do in the local area with lovely local restaurants just a short walk away. The beach is just below the apartment which offers clear blue water to cool off in. We highly recommend a stay with the Penga family.

Spotlessly clean unit

  • 4 of 5

We stayed one week at this ground floor apartment. It was small but had everything required. It was a perfect stay. Caroline, John and their sons were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. It is a beautiful area and a trip in to Trogir is advised for its' quaint old town alleyways and historic interest.. Jane and Doug Muir

Es waren schöne Flitterwochen!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir können die Ferienwohnungen der Familie Penga wärmstens empfehlen. Die Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und stets hilfsbereit. Wir haben uns bei den Pengas sehr willkommen gefühlt. Egal ob man Englisch, Deutsch oder Russisch spricht, Frau Penga und Ihr Mann können einem super verstehen und weiterhelfen.

Die Wohnung ist für alle Jahreszeiten bestens ausgestattet, eine Heizung und eine Klimaanlage ist vorhanden. Selbst im Oktober kann man hier noch ordentlich Sonne tanken! Und bei den 3-4 Regentagen die wir während unseres Aufenthaltes hatten, haben wir es uns in der Wohnung gemütlich gemacht.

Die Umgebung und der Ort Okrug Gornji laden zum Baden, Schnorcheln und Wandern ein. Lebensmittelläden sind ausreichend vorhanden und die umliegenden Städte Split und Trogir laden zum flanieren und shoppen ein.

Es danken vielmals,

Sabine & Christian

Warmest Welcome in Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this lovely appartment based on the pictures on HomeAway and the excellent reviews that we had seen.

In fact the pictures, nice as they are, do not do it justice as the accomodation is perfect for a 2 week stay with all the facilities you need, an outstanding view over the bay and most of all because Caroline and Ivica are the most marvellous, warm and welcoming hosts we have ever experienced.

Nothing is too much trouble for them and after the 2 weeks we felt like we were leaving good friends behind when we packed our bags and left for the airport (thanks to Ivica for collecting and returning us to the airport).

perhaps the highlight of the holiday was the amazing meal that Caroline cooked for us, and for the guests in the other appartment which was complimented by some excellent home made wine and spirits made by Ivica.

Okrug Gornji is a great location and our appartment was just 5 minutes walk down to the beach and about 12 minutes from the harbour where there were good restaurants and boats about every 20 minutes over to Trogir.

Trogir is just 15 minutes away on the boat and the return trip for my wife and I cost just 80 kuna, or £9, and incredible bargain for a wonderful experience.

Trogir is a lovely historic town with a tremendous ambience and it is also worth a trip on the boat to Split and Medena (both from Trogir).

All in all a wonderful holiday made special by a couple of really wonderful people.

Holiday on Ciovo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful and most relaxing week on beautiful Ciovo island in this nice and tidy apartment enjoying the hospitality of Caroline and Ivo.

The apartment was very well equipped to make a meal if wanted but there were also nice restaurants in walking distance to eat out.

Weather was so sunny, beaches great and the sea just awesome - perfect for sunbathing, canooing, walking along the rocky beach or the several paths across the island and villages and of course swimming!

Everything needed was near by. We made a trip to Trogir once by foot and once with a boat that goes frequently and is easy and cheap.

Caroline and Ivo were the most helpful and cheerful hosts warmly taking care of their guests. And the dinner of Caroline's bbq Croatian sea food and Ivo's house wine on the balcony was the best!

We can warmly recommend this apartment and hope to get there again in the future.
