Wonderful place, beautifully decorated, in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a blustery day and were so pleased to find such a lovely home. Katia and Rupert have designed and built a beautiful stone home with sea views. It is close to everything but feels very private. The furnishings are perfect and we loved the nice linens on very comfortable beds! The outdoor spaces are exceptional and a great place to enjoy the sun which returned after arrival. We particularly appreciated the excellent communication with our hosts and all their help with plans and ferry strategies. Don't miss Alviz restaurant while you are there. It was a great recommendation!

Simply stunning accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Once we got ourselves and our suitcases up the stairs (with a bit of help from Rupert) it was well worth it. Great views from the terraces.

It was wonderful that Rupert took the time to show us round not only our accommodation but around the town itself to get our bearings. Had 4 lovely nights here.

Well appointed place with everything we needed. Clean and tidy, awesome outdoor areas, comfortable beds - all round it ticked the boxes on everything.

Beautiful House - Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Well what can we say about this house.........

We got married on the beautiful island of Hvar on 3rd September 2015 and were looking for a charming house with a view. What we got was way beyond our expectations.

Having visited Hvar previously we eventually decided on renting this house. I was a little apprehensive as I did not know exactly where it was and the balance was due prior to our arrival. (As I discovered is normal!) However, having telephoned Rupert my mind was put at ease and he answered all questions I had.

As for the House, it is a beautiful stone House that overlooks the main Harbour. Whilst there are a significant number of steps to the house it is certainly worth it for the beautiful views from the rooms and terrace.

The house was clean and well maintained throughout. The 2 bedrooms both had en suites and there was a further toilet in the Kitchen/Dining room on the ground floor. It would ideally suit 2 couples or a family as the property is very well laid out.

Rupert (the owner) was extremely helpful from the moment I sent my initial request to the moment when we arrived helping me with all the luggage my new wife decided to bring!

The Villa is only a short walk to all the many shops and restaurants Hvar Town has to offer yet still offers peace and quiet and beautiful views.

A fantastic stay in Hvar and I cant wait to visit the island again.

Charming, clean, comfortable with fantastic views.

  • 5 of 5

The villa lived up to all of our expectations. It had everything that we needed, was spotlessly clean and in the best possible location: quiet and secluded but within minutes of the shops, bars and water taxis.

The fact hat it had A/C was a particular boon as it was blisteringly hot while we were there.

Rupert, the owner, was fantastically helpful, and always at hand, if needed.

Without doubt, however, the best thing about the villa was evening drinks on the terrace looking out at the harbour and the Pakleni islands as the sun was setting.

Beautiful house in great location in Hvar!

Fantastic place to stay and explore Hvar. House exactly as described, and well equipped for your stay. Rupert was very helpful and happy to meet us and give info about the house and area even though we arrived late at night. Terrace is great for morning breakfast. Would definitely stay again. Alan F

A brilliant short break in Hvar

  • 5 of 5

The property was exactly as described. Rupert provided a great personal intro to the house and to Hvar. We enjoyed the house, its facilities and its well set-out garden area. A daily highlight was breakfast on teh upper terrace with views across the harbour and to the islands. There were three of us and we would certainly stay there again.
