Stone House in Kut, Vis Island, Croatia - Unspoilt Vis Island provides the perfect getaway. Lively atmosphere without any mass tourism.
Our luxury house on unspoilt Vis Island was converted to a very high standard in 2006. It is perfectly situated for a relaxing villa-style holiday. All the principal rooms are air conditioned & have ceiling fans for essential cooling during the hot summer. The upstairs balcony has a panoramic view of Vis bay & its super-yachts! And the ground floor kitchen opens out on to a secluded private courtyard for an evening glass of wine at sundown, to be followed by al fresco BBQ supper, or a 3 min stroll to one of four excellent restaurants overlooking the waterfront. Enjoy!

Hi Maggie, I want to let you know that you have a wonderful house. We just loved it :) and we also liked the island very much, in particular Kut. We also went to stay some days in Komiza, it was very nice there too.
Best regards from Karin

We really did love it – one of the loveliest houses I've ever stayed in and we found the whole island incredibly beautiful (especially the view over Vis harbour when the sun is going down). It was the perfect holiday – very restful so that we returned feeling completely recharged. Medo was also really welcoming and helpful.
Thanks again for lending us your lovely house.

Fantastic holiday home on stunning Vis Island
We had a wonderful week's holiday and loved both the house and Vis Island. Would definitely recommend and aim to come back one day. The house has been lovingly restored and feels like a real "home from home". Everything has been thought about to make for a really relaxing holiday and feel a bit special. The house is in a brilliant location - just round the corner from both local bakery, fruit market and convenience store, as well as the harbour and wonderful restaurants. It was also a nice walk into Vis town in the evenings. It was very hot when we were there but the house has both lovey breeze coming through as well as fans and air-conditioning. Only small thing for us is that the second double bed would feel quite small for two adults. The main double bed was very comfortable. We went with our teenage children and one slept on the sofa bed in the upstairs lounge which they were very happy with.
