Guestbook comments from the owner

Stefan says: 'Everything was perfect. The villa is right by the beach with a very beautiful view of the sunset/sunrise. The rooms are large, modernly decorated. Slavko, the host, was very hospitable and helpful. Zaboric is a very quiet place but there are a lot of places to visit - Sibenik, Krka National Park and Trogir to name a few. We will definitely return to Zaboric and Villa Maria.'

Mrs Ali M. says: 'Today we are back home from a very nice holiday in your house in Zaboric. The very warm welcome of Mrs. Morovic and also the extras, such as wine, food, bread. etc. was a pleasant surprise for us. Also the young people in the beach bar were very kind to us. Thanks again!'

Excellent Villa and Very Warm Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

As a family we had a fantastic stay at Villa Maria. Starting with the welcome pack - containing Slavko's own excellent wine - which was the best we have ever received, the villa and the hospitality of Maria and Slavko exceeded our expectations. The villa is very spacious and well designed and had everything we needed for our stay. Outside the pool and gardens were very well looked after and ideal for a relaxing day in the sun or to grab a dip after a day out. They even had a sea kayak moored off the beach which was great for exploring the immediate coast and the islands offshore. We were able to take figs and plums from the trees in the garden which was lovely.

The view from the villa is amazing and the sunsets were spectacular. There is a bar/restaurant, the Shark bar, close by which does good food and a couple of small supermarkets within a short walk. We had a car and visited Krka National Park (lovely but very crowded when we went), Sibenik, Split and Trogir (which was our favourite town).

Would definitely recommend Villa Maria.

Best villa ever

  • 5 of 5

We really could not fault this villa. The pool is perfect and well maintained while the beach is fun for snorkeling or just people watching. The standard of finish in the appartment is high and feels very familiar to us British as the frequent guests are the UK family of top hosts Slavko and Maria. Welcome food and drink exceptional. They live quietly downstairs but that ensures garden is perfect and all needs met. Village has enough going on but drive or bus for buzzing towns. Would go again.

Just about perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is sited in an idyllic location, overlooking the sea and islands. When lazing around the sizeable pool, one can take in the superb scenery. The garden is well-kept and attractive, with lawns, fruit trees, flowers and vegetable patch.

Inside, the villa is bright and spacious, with a large open space comprising well-equipped kitchen, dining area and lounge; the latter having satellite TV, surround sound and stereo CD player etc. The 3 bedrooms are roomy, each having huge en suite bathrooms and sea views from windows and individual balcony.

The villa is a short stroll away from a couple of local supermarkets, and a similar distance from a couple of bars/restaurants and another bar. Or use the villa's own kayak to get there!

The villa is cleverly designed, so that although the owners live downstairs, it feels like you have the entire property. Slavko and Maria are delightful but very discrete hosts; they are there to help, clean the pool, maintain the garden etc, but take care to ensure that guests have uninterrupted access to all the facilities, including the comprehensively equipped bar-b-q kitchen/cooking facilities and al fresco dining area.

We have never had such a super welcome pack, not only because of the range of items, but also because platters of cold meats, cheeses, bread, etc had all been prepared ready for our first meal, along with wine, beer, chocolates and fruit.

We often chatted with them, gained tips for sightseeing and eating out, and were invited to join them for drinks on a couple of occasions, as well as being encouraged to pick fruit and vegetables for ourselves.

In all, our party of six were very happy and fully satisfied with this property. It is superb!

Excellent holiday

  • 5 of 5

We went as a group of 6, the villa has excellent facilities and the description is totally accurate. The location is beautiful, like the owner says - sunsets every night. The pool was cleaned every day and was a lovely temperature. Slavko was very friendly and answered any queries we had and told us to help ourselves to any fruit we wanted (which was delicious). We took advantage of the BBQ area which was also great. We chose not to hire a car and Slavko helped us arrange a 6 seater taxi and there are many places to visit within an hour (Krka waterfalls are lovely) and the taxi was a reasonable price, there are a couple of bars and shops within 10 minutes walk. Would definitely recommend this apartment to everyone

Warm hospitality in wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

A warm welcome and generous hospitality add to a very high standard appartment in a beautiful location. We spent a week at Villa Maria, and as well as the pool and Beach, there were lots of places to visit within an hours drive. The peaches, fresh off the tree in the beautiful garden, were delicious.

Villa Maria - Reveiw

  • 5 of 5

We went as a group of six (All adults) and had a thoroughly good time. The property is well designed and furnished. The garden and pool areas were excellently maintained.The weather was in the region of 24-26 degrees which was ideal for travelling and sight seeing. There is lot to do and see. We returned home energised and tired (not realising how much we had done). We hired two cars for the stay and driving (on the wrong side) was relatively easy and enjoyable.The venu and the host are excellent. There are many shops and restaurants nearby which offer excellent value......one or two listed here (Trattoria "Gastro Italiano" ). There are many attractions to visit (KRKA National Park, Sibenik, Split and Primosten) to name but a few.

The owners were excellent host and could not have done any more to make you welcome and feel at home. A return trip is a must. Our comments in brief would be as follows:

Venue description - True and accurate (better in many ways.)

Ease of booking - Very Good

Directions and location - Very Good

Premises/overall condition - Excellent, modern and clean.

Facilities on site - Very Good Swimming pool, Barbecue and private access to the beach.

Apart from transporting sand to the beach there wa noting that we missed on our trip. Everything else was aptly catered for or attended to by our wonderful host Maria and Slavko.

Krka National Park
"A lovely place to spend whole day in this woodland surrounded waterfalls. There are footpath..."

From the Owner

This 5* villa enjoys miles of sea view with sandy and pebble beaches just few steps away. Zaboric Bay has probably the best climate on the whole of Adriatic Cost. it is Sheltered from the open Sea by several small islands, and from the hinterland with surrounded hills. Very often we hear the news on the TV about the heavy Storms and rain just 10km North an South of us, but we had just cloudy sky and maybe just a normal rain. Due to this microclimate, our sea water is always at lest 2ºC warmer then in the other areas. Last year the sea water in our bay was up to 30ºC, and even at the end of September, up to 25ºC
