About AnnMarie Sedor

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.

AnnMarie Sedor purchased this apartment in 2011

Why AnnMarie Sedor chose Hvar

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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!

Exceptional apartment

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I spent a relaxing week in this wonderful apartment which is a short walk from Hvar Old Town. The apartment is incredibly clean and comfortable with all the home comforts you could need. The view from the balcony is amazing and we spent many happy hours sat there with a glass or two of wine. The only thing that spoilt it slightly was the music drifting up from the Hula Hula beach bar but fortunately it didn't go on too late and it wouldn't stop us from returning to this lovely apartment.

Paradise in Hvar

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I recently spent 5 nights at this property and we had a wonderful stay! The apartment is very well equipped and comfortable. It is roomy and has a large deck that overlooks the Adriatic Sea. A beautiful view!! There is also an automatic awning which you can use to provide shade on those hot sunny days. We appreciated having the use of a washing machine/drying rack as we'd been travelling for some time when we arrived. There is a market just minutes away with a good supply of merchandise. This property is high on a hill, hence the beautiful view, but that means many steps down to the water's edge and to the Old Town. If we ever have the opportunity we would stay at this apartment again. Also. Ann Marie was very helpful in answering any questions we had before we arrived. Happy Travels!

Recommend this lovely apartment. Beautiful views. Well equipped & clean. Superb

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely views from this well equipped, clean and beautiful apartment. Would have no hesitation recommending a stay here unless you have mobility issues. Hvar is hilly! Walk to town square only ten minutes. We ordered a take away one night and spent a lovely evening on the balcony eating best pizza ever with bottle of Posip wine watching sunset. Very peaceful. Heard the Hula Hula bar crowd but not an issue and not late. Avoid taxis as expensive! Thanks for excellent instructions....lots of good advice appreciated. Will remember views from the apartment for a long while. Thank you Ann Marie

Outstanding views from attractive, thoughtfully appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

The view would almost be enough, but AnnMarie has thought of everything a visitor might need in this apartment! The kitchen is better equipped than my own and there are many useful items like a shopping cart, umbrella, and beach basket, along with good quality linens and comfortable furnishings. All this adds to the makings of an easy holiday.

It's impossible to fully convey the affect the spectacular view has on your sense of well-being. We spent many long, satisfying mornings on the balcony gazing at the islands and watching the ships go by. There is easy access to the seawall path and a very chill beach bar just below. We enjoyed this quieter, lower key part of town. It's an easy walk into the old town which has many lovely restaurants and beautiful historic buildings. AnnMarie was most helpful in her recommendations. A trip to the Pakleni Islands is a must.

While some reviewers enjoyed the music from Hula Hula bar, we found it too loud and intrusive in such a peaceful setting. We chose to spend mornings on the balcony but went out for dinner and sunset time to avoid the volume.

That said, I wouldn't hesitate to make a return visit to this special apartment. Highly recommended!

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".

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.

Coast/Beach:

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.

Travel:

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.

Distances:

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:)
