About the Owner

Hvar, Croatia is the place I return to when I want to soothe my soul. For the majority of my life I have lived in America, mostly Washington State and California. However, I now call Hvar my home where I have found family, friends, community and peace of mind. After receiving my Croatian citizenship and residency, I chose to establish a life here on this incredible island. I have worked, played and enjoyed the beauty of the sea, the people and the seasonal food. My professional life has been made up of several careers from International teaching, accomplished artist, local barista/waitress and occasional tour guide. But the job I enjoy the most is harvest season with family, as we pick grapes for wine and olives for oil. Hvar is a place that can be appreciated year round. For me spring and fall are the best times in Hvar.

I am currently back to teaching at Munich International School. Here I teach students with special needs in grades 3 and 4. I am fortunate to only have an hour and half flight back home to Hvar and find myself there quite often when the holidays hit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear AnnMarie,

Thank you for all your organizing and advise over the last months.

We fell in love with Hvar and also with your wonderful apartment.

Everything in the apartment was clean, comfortable and well thought out. You went out of your way to furnish the apartment in a way that would make a travelers life easier.

Then - the view! Best in Hvar, in fact, best in Croatia. We just couldn't get enough of that view. Why go out for sundowners when you have the best spot in town?

We plan to return for a longer period to get to know the island with all it's gems better. 4 days are simply not enough. We will definitely stay in Sea to Sky again, without any doubt!

Apartment stunning in all respects. Exceptionally well equipped and of high quality. Comfort was 5*

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we opened the balcony doors and caught sight of the 'jaw dropping views', we understood not only the often quoted beauty of the Croatian Islands, but also the meaning of 'Sea to Sky Hvar Apartment'. The TV and excellent selection of DVDs were not needed. Our TV was a special 2000 inch panoramic one mounted in front of our balcony. We arrived at 5pm after a magical journey from Viganj on the peninsula including 2 ferry crossings (NOT to be missed if possible). With cases still closed but wine bottles very much opened, we sat and watched and marvelled at the scene which unfolded in front of us. Small boats, water taxis and masted schooners gliding across the clear blue waters in front us. Sunset deposited its glorious colours then the sounds of HVAR's nightlife gently drifted by with distant laughter and music all in the distance so not to disturb the peace and tranquility we were experiencing still sat on the balcony at midnight absorbed by the scenes beneath and all around us. Each evening unfolded with a similar pattern of activity. This apartment not only gave us a great base to explore HVAR's coves, countryside and superb food but was fundamental in providing a comfortable 'home' for 7 days. My wife and I have often said on returning from holidays "Great holiday but there's nothing like coming back to your own home". Not so this time. After a month being back in work in UK we still comment on how well equipped apartment was and comfortable. No cost spared. The 'patio furniture' was the real deal and very comfy. Pretty important as we lived out there when back from our wonderful days out. Thank you so much AnnMarie for really knowing what people want from a holiday home. In the words of one famous character "We will be back".

Gorgeous apartment with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this beautiful apartment. It was really clean and spacious and had a view to die for over the Pakleni Islands. The town was extremely busy when we visited in mid August but although it wasn’t far (15 mins walk), the apartment was far enough away from any noise to ensure we weren’t disturbed. AnnMarie’s info was great for helping us to quickly settle in and find our bearings – there is a small supermarket for essentials 5 mins away and a quieter beach 5 mins down the hill. The large balcony provided the best seat in town for watching the passing boats and the beautiful sunsets. The apartment had everything we needed including the hugely convenient washing machine and great air con. The bed was really comfortable too (best pillows ever!). We wouldn’t hesitate to return.

Fantastic property with a stunning view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i stayed in AnneMarie's property for 5 nights and we couldn't ask for a more perfect stay in Hvar. The apartment was spotless when we entered and offered ample room for a couple. The real highlight was when we looked onto the balcony which really did offer a picture postcard view of the ocean. We enjoyed breakfast on the balcony and early evening drinks before heading out listening to the music from Hula Hula which which added to the ambiance.

With regards to location it is far enough away from town and the clubs to accommodate a peaceful night sleep and close enough for a brisk walk into the old town and beaches during the morning.

All in all we had a fantastic stay and this was made all the more helpful as our host AnneMarie was so accommodating leading up to and during our stay.

Stunning views & lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We chose a return stay at this apartment as we loved it so much, it has absolutely everything you need and more for a perfect base to explore the island of Hvar, situated in an elevated position with exceptional views of the Pakleni islands and Hvar old town, the large balcony is perfect for meals, sunbathing or just watching the everchanging seascape unfold. The apartment is super clean, well equipped and stylishly furnished with thoughtful extras, beach mat, towels, picnic basket etc and good WIFI connection and Smart TV. Walk into main town Marina area is around 15 minutes downhill at a stroll and to nearest swimming (we liked Podstine Hotel terraces) around 8 minutes, AnnMarie is contactable at all times for any questions and very kindly allowed us a late check out to suit our travel plans. We can't wait for our next visit.

Beautiful apartment with the most amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ann Marie for responding quickly to our enquiry and providing lots of helpful advice and information. The apartment was beautifully furnished and clean and well equipped. It's in a quiet area and in an elevated position hence the amazing views from the balcony. I didn't tire of looking out across the sea and town and islands. The walk into town is lovely: 10 minutes quick pace or I preferred 25 minutes along the sea front. All the restaurants we ate in were great : something for every budget. We enjoyed visiting the castle and the church. Hvar town has a 'buzz' about it which I liked. We took the water taxi across to the islands and drove out to surrounding towns and lavender fields. It was nice to have the car but not essential. I would definitely recommend this apartment and location.

Beautiful Hvar

  • 5 of 5

Have just returned after spending 2 weeks on this pretty island,which was a bit like walking onto a film set from 'Mamma Mia' as we arrived at the port on the ferry.The apartment was modern, clean and well equipped and even displayed art work done by AnnMarie herself. The balcony with its wonderful views of the other islands was amazing, especially the magnificent sun sets. Would strongly recommend the transfer services of Amazing Hvar, run by Urska. They were extremely friendly and efficient and made the transfer completely stress free, as all taxi and ferries were booked and paid for before our arrival. Finally a big thank you to AnnMarie, who from our very first enquiry, responded really quickly, which we found very reassuring.

From the Owner

My mother's parents are from the islands of Hvar and Brac. I never dreamed I would be living in a place they left and never returned to. I can't really get my head around how I acquired this lovely apartment and how everything has unfolded for me here in creating a different type of lifestyle. All I know is that I am thankful and blessed everyday I walk in the door and look at the Adriatic Sea in front of me. This place (Croatia and my apartment) are gifts that bring me joy and peace of mind. I hope you too will experience the gifts that Croatia offers, if you so choose to holiday here.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Split Aiport is 30 min. to Port then a ferry ride at 85 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Hula, Hula or Hotel Postine or Falko at 300 Metres Nearest Ferry : Foot ferry that arrives in Hvar Town at 2 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Hotel Postine at 200 Metres Nearest Beach : Is below the apartment down the stairs at 300 Metres Car: not necessary

Special interest holidays:

Hvar is a wonderful place for artists and the local countryside is a haven for budding botanists. An island is an island – however, I think you will find the island of Hvar a very special place. There are enough things to do here to keep you busy for weeks. If you want to explore even more, take a water taxi to the nearby Pakleni Archipelago, where you’ll find enough coves for diving, underwater fishing, swimming and water sports. If that is not enough island life for you, take a boat trip to the island of Vis, where you can see the famous blue and green caves. Lots of sightseeing can be done with or without a tour guide. There is a nice tennis facility a few meters behind the apartment. And don't forget to check out the many spa services offer on the island of Hvar.


You are a few minutes walk from some of the most desirable beaches on the west side of town. This includes Hotel Podstine, which offers a wonderful swimming pool, fitness center, restaurant and several bars including a few along the seawall. Boats and scooters can be rented at the hotel. Taxi boats can be rented in the town center off the main harbor to reach Pakleni Islands. The walk to town is about 10 to 12 minutes depending on how you chose to stroll…seawall, road or through the park area.


How to reach Hvar on Hvar Island:

The nearest international airport is Split Airport.

Split Airport is 30km distant from Split Port (shuffle bus, rental cars, taxi).

From Split Port take the catamaran directly to Hvar town (1 hour boat ride) or the ferry to Starigrad (2 hour boat ride).

Take the modern tarmac road from Starigrad to Hvar Town (about 16km) with bus, rental car or taxi. Taxi arrangements can be made for you once booking is completed. Driving in Croatia is fairly easy.


The apartment is situated in one of the Hvar's finest neighborhoods, in the west part of town. Most local amenities are pretty much on your doorstep. The town provides further activities and is a pleasant walk away.

The next nearest town is Stari Grad, about 13km away.

A taxi can be arranged to pick you up at the catamaran/ferry and take you to the apartment. This fee is paid locally to the driver by you.

Further Details:

As of July 1, 2013 Croatia became an EU member – there are no longer any frontier controls at the borders between Croatia and other EU countries.

We greatly appreciate if you choose to rent our apartment while visiting Hvar:

One of the ten most beautiful islands in the world! Come and see for yourself:)

From the Owner

One of the things I love most about my apartment here in Hvar is that you can see the sea from every room. There have been several times where I have looked up from my computer or what I am doing and just stop! I walk out to the balcony and stand in awe. The beauty here can capture my heart and take my breath away. Some how, being in this apartment seems to bring life back into balance for me.
