About the Owner
About Sally and Ricky Simic
Sally and I, live both in the UK and Croatia. We have owned two properties in different regions of Croatia during the last twenty five years, the first in Kvarner Riviera and the second, our present property in Mugeba, a small quiet village, within walking distance from the Porec on the Istrian Peninsular. We choose this region above all others because it is so special.
Our current property comprises of five apartments, four of which we let, and the fifth is our own home.
Sally and Ricky Simic purchased this villa in 1994

Wow, What a fantastic holiday!
Where do we start? The peaceful location? The ambient temperature of the pool? The local restaurants? The activities? - especially the water park and the sparkling wine tasting. All of the above! The apartment had everything we needed in a peaceful village location. Of course a car was needed to visit the many restaurants, beaches, hilltop villages and ice cream shops - all helpfully located with the guidance of Sally and Rick our amazing hosts. Thanks to them for making it a holiday to remember. Our first visit to Croatia will not be our last.
A truly wonderful Croatian experience
I have just arrived back from one of the best holidays I have had. The villa and the local area was simply beautiful with so much to do from boat tours, pirate caves, to wine tasting, water parks and stunning terrace scenery views over dinner. But all these things May not of been achieved without the two fantastic hosts Sally and Rik who helped us tremendously into arranging these things. Right from our late arrival we were greeted by Sally with a drink by the pool where she talked through how we can make the most out of our holiday. They made us feel part of the family which is something I will not forget. I recommend 100% and will definitely be coming back. Thank you Sally and Rik for making our first time in Croatia truly wonderful!
Relaxing and peaceful location.
Beautiful location and lovely spacious property. Clean and well appointed. Although in a quiet location easy access to many good restaurants and places to visit. Great local advice from Sally and Ricky gave us the unforgettable Croatian experience. We will be back!
A wonderful holiday
We spend a wonderful holiday in Sally and Ricks property. The apartment was spacious enough for the three of us with one bedroom and a big daybed for our daughter. From our terrace we had direct access to the swimming pool and we started every morning with a refreshing swim. While overlooking the swimming pool we had breakfast on the spacious terrace making good use of all the tasty local products Istria has to offer.
Sally and Rick were wonderful hosts who made us imediately feel welcome even though we arrived late in the evening.
If you want to eat real Istrian food you should follow their advice. Sally and Rick do not only know the local restaurants but also make sure that you get a table with a nice view.
If you want to see more than the coastline follow their advice and you will see the most beautiful places in Istria.
All in all a fantastic holiday and a place we would like to come back.
Edeltraud Reichenbach (Holland)
Istria, and Porec in particular- is a wonderful, unspoiled Mediterranean sun-trap. Olive trees and vineyards dot the landscape in much the same way as rural Italy. This is true for the area surrounding Mugeba, the little village which houses Villa Laguna.
It's a perfect place, and a perfect base to explore Istria. Several beaches are within walking distance, though Sally (the owner) was kind enough to advise us of a delightful pebble beach not five minutes away by car- a place which felt like our own little paradise.
Likewise, the town of Porec is pretty close, a walk if you're feeling fit, and is just delightful. (The food especially)
The villa, and the hosts, Sally and Rick made a great stay special though. They knew the region inside out, advised us on beaches of note (as said) and knew all the best local restaurants. On our second night, Rick, who speaks English and Croatian equally well- booked us into a restaurant called the 'Tower' for my wife's birthday- and secured us seats which I doubt we would otherwise have been able to get, it was a busy, busy night!
The apartment we rented (Apartment 1) was great for us (two couples, ages 26-29,) big enough for privacy, with enough communal space (lovely balcony area) to enjoy as a group.
The pool was lovely throughout our stay, and we had free use of the BBQ (meat from the local butcher was delicious... accompanied by equally good local wine!)
Overall, the apartment, villa and pool would have been nice enough to enjoy in isolation. On top of that, excellent hosts and great surrounding area added up to make our stay one of the most memorable summer holidays yet. My wife I will definitely be coming back.
