Overview

About the property

Guesthouse in centre of the old town, historical centre peninsula of Zadar, Dalmatian Coast - Plenty Of Choices For Beaches, Entertainment, Restaurants, Excursions And Activities.

A nice, just refurbished, big room with air con for a good night sleep and continental breakfast (all optional with extra reasonable charge). We can agree on those in advance or you can decide on the spot about air-conditioning if it is hot or not. Available airport transfers. In central position in lovely old town of Zadar. Pedestrian zone in the centre of the historical town, quiet and clean. Balcony with a view. Linen and house towels provided. Comfortable beds and mattresses, high quality carefully chosen and made on order for us, not cheap, tourist one season, back breaking sort or beds made on the brick or building material (there are those as well believe it or not, fashionable from the magazine but not for your back and neck). Unlimited wi-fi if you wish to use your laptop or you can use ours occasionally to stay in touch and keep informed. You can choose culture, sun bathing and swimming, bird watching during your stay.

Four national parks in short driving distance from the town: mountains, islands, lakes or waterfalls. We can take you to Plitvice or Krka waterfalls, island of Pag, Split, Medjugorje or you can go yourself, plenty of choice in town but we think that our offers make more sense for a almost same money.

Please note we are private renters and we care about the guests and we are not a rich guy who bought 20 properties to get quick money and that is all he cares.

Important: we don't mind smokers, as they can enjoy cigarette and a drink on the balcony, we don't smoke ourselves and prefer smoke free house. For optional excursions see rental rates information below. Please note: Zadar is fully functioning Mediterranean town with all amenities and beautiful surroundings so you can be entertained in the town and escape to uncrowded beaches and places during the day if you wish to do so.

Important warnings: many places advertised are in remote location, with no amenities around and still with a lot of tourists and crowded in the high season. Out of season very, very boring and after a day you will have to come to town where is quiet but a lot of good quality choices for eating out, entertainment, beaches, shops and transport. You have to calculate the cost of local transport, taxis or car hire if you want to see something and do something. They are advertised as Zadar but they are not, it takes an hour or more to reach the town and there is no air con in the buses and it is hot and crowded in the high season. You will pay for the local transport as much as for accommodation and you will have to use taxi in the evening.

The same applies for the advertisers who are not in the center of the town but advertise as such. Return city bus fare to the center for two is €6 and for a little bit further €10-15. Taxi is of course double or more. You should calculate that in the cost of holiday or it can be very boring out of town and centre and time consuming traveling to the centre and to the starting point of your excursion.

If somebody is picking you up for the excursion that means that you will spend less time at the destination as you are not the only one they are picking up. They also pay a guide to take you there and he is in a rush to get back (he goes there every day) so he will cut corners and take you around in the circles and you will not see much. Personal service and guiding is what we offer and there is no better way to see the national parks. If they say accommodation is 10 minutes from the town don't believe it if you don't have a pair of wings. It is not a city bus, it goes every 2 hours, it is not reliable and you have to wait for it and walk to and from the station and on +30 c heat (from the early morning) it is not a pleasant experience. To waste 2 hours of your valuable holiday time and energy is simply a bad holiday experience. We talked to the people who made a mistake staying out of the town but it was too late to change it and that is why we would like you to choose wisely. Stay in the centre of the beautiful town, have fun and long walks by the sea.

The best of both worlds: entertainment and peace, it is your choice. After a good night sleep in air conditioned room we can provide continental breakfast (optional with a small supplement) or other meals if you wish (on agreement). We can drive you places or to the secluded beach as well. We are very flexible and we can change plans very easy in agreement with you. Personal attention is our strength, you are the guest and hospitality is what we do. We speak very good English, we are well educated and pleasant companions and guides if you need one. If you prefer to be alone, we leave you to enjoy and explore at your own pace and time. We would like you to come back or to recommend us to others. In any case Croatia, Zadar and we, can make a holiday to enjoy, remember and recommend.

You stay in Zadar and you want to go to places you know they are beautiful and you heard about them, read and seen the pictures. You don't want to go with a crowd of teenagers or loud group of tourists. You are right, you would not see that much and you will spend even more money. So, we can take you there, stop where they don't and show you what they don't.

This is what we can offer: Stay in Zadar and see more of Croatia in relaxed, comfortable and informed way. One day for maximum of 4 people, car, petrol and driver and guide included; attractions tickets and food not included. We are happy to take 2 people or even 1 if they want to go separately (subject to previous agreement). Payment on the day of the excursion, further details and prices available on request. Those are just recommended itineraries based on our experiences what people like and what is possible to see in a day but we can change it according to your preferences. More details about those places easily available from official web sites and town's internet pages.

1. Plitvice waterfalls (on UNESCO's list of natural wonders) national park and inland Croatia, see and feel the lakes, take a boat ride under the waterfalls explore the park and taste local food specialties. Scenic route and a couple of interesting stops on the way there and back. You spend 6 hours (national park's recommended route but it is your decision, you can adjust it if you like) on the lakes and it is worth every minute.

2. Krka Waterfalls National Park, swim in the lakes, walk around and visit monasteries (all day excursion, transfers between various beautiful parts of the park included)

3. Paklenica, Velebit mountains National Park, mountain trails, caves or rock climbing

4. Split, Primosten, Trogir - UNESCO protected town museums and the coastline (with us or local, efficient and comfortable intercity bus service)

5. Medjugorje, shrine of apparitions of Virgin Mary, religious pilgrimage (for a day excursion or we can transfer you there and pick you up and take you to your flight, or any other combination)

6. Bungee jumping, canoe safari, white water rafting, parachuting, bird watching or other similar activities available locally on the high bridges and wild rivers. We show you where or take you there if you like.

The difference between a big group excursion and our personal touch is:

The big group will not introduce them to you, we will, they are nice and loving couple, pleasure to know. They are about a year old young lovers and we know them since they were little babies. Very soon you might get lucky and meet some of their offspring.

About Goran Sabol

Many years of experience in renting accommodation as a tour guide in Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro and wider. Able to take people around and show secret beautiful places. Highly educated. Lived in various parts of Croatia and former Yugoslavia and UK and speak very good English. Knowledge of history, customs, people, food and geography of the area. Complete escorted service with accommodation in my car and local tours as well.Tailor made according to wishes and possibilities.

I advertised on many travel property sites and had excellent reviews which are available upon request as I can post only 3 on this web site..

Why Goran Sabol chose Zadar

This is my family place I know it all my life as well as Zadar and area

What makes this bed and breakfast unique

For the reasonable amount of money you get nice and clean accommodation in the centre of the town. All attractions are around you and you don't waste time or money going somewhere else. If you want to go to the islands, ferry leave 200m away and it is so easy and so nice and tranquil. Even early morning excursions are possible and in the evening you have choice of restaurants and bars.

It is fun but not overcrowded if you like nature you are not far. Ideal holiday for combining different interests, walking, swimming, drinking, sightseeing further exploring -it is your choice.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The best holiday ever"



The place is located in the perfect position of the old town and you have everything around you in minutes distance. The excursions we took with Vlatka and Goran were amazing, these people know everything what you need to see and hear. Me and my girlfriend went on 4 of the excursions: Plitvica, Krka, Paklenica and island of Pag. Each one of these places worth it to visit for a good value of money. There was no rush and you have time to explore more of these places when you are on excursion with Goran and Vlatka, they will take you somewhere where other people dont know or dont want you to go there and you definitely must see it. One of the best holidays we ever been, mixture of everything: mountains, lakes, rivers, islands, beaches with crystal water, old towns with interesting history, caves, climbing peaks with a breathtaking views and much more only in 7 days we had there. I can Imagine if we had another week there to see more of Croatia. Overall we didn't want to leave the place and our friends Goran and Vlatka, lovely people and we had lots of fun with them. Miss you already and hope to see you soon.

"When can I come back?"



I'd really recommend Zadar as a place to visit: there is enough to do around the area for several days (although the old town itself could be done in a weekend.) There are beaches just outside the old town (to say nothing of the nearby islands) and it's possible to just step in and swim along most of the edge of the peninsula, particularly around the Sea Organ and the Greeting to the Sun.



The location of the apartment is very much in the centre (right by the main belltower so easy to find) and right amongst the restaurants and bars in the old town. The apartment block is off the main street and the room looks down into a small enclosed street so there was no noise at night. We had no issues with the bells in the belltower waking us up. The air conditioning was very effective, and 100% necessary in August.



But what made the holiday so much better was the care and advice that Goran and Vladka gave us. From little things like being given a bottle of frozen water when we were heading out to the beach, to the quick walking tour to orientate us and show us the main sights, and their excellent local recommendations. The included breakfasts were delicious, and the airport pickup was really handy. Our problem was that there was too much to see, but we'll be coming back - and staying with Goran and Vladka.

"Fantastic place, fantastic people."



This place is perfectly situated in the old town; it's near to the shops, sea front and boats to the surrounding Islands.



Included in the cost of the room are the airport transfers to and from Zadar airport, very handy!



The apartment was spotless and our room had a balcony plus there was a rooftop terrace with a BBQ so you could sit out in the evenings and chill out.



We will most definitely be returning!!!



Thank you both for a great holiday.

Notes:
Notes on accommodation: Prices are for guidance only please enquire for correct prices, they depend from the availability, time of the year, number of people, length of stay, transfer, type of breakfast, air-conditioning etc.... It is too complicated to be advertised with all variables but will be explained in clear details when requested. It is easy to adjust according to wishes and we can provide personal package according to your needs and wishes. We take guests for 3 nights, occasionally for 2 nights (please feel free to make an enquiry) if it fits with other bookings and at a slightly higher rate which reflects our cost of preparing the room. Our expenses are the same for guests staying for a week or two days therefore difference in price. By taking shorter bookings we may lose longer bookings. This is a genuine private accommodation, you deal with me and it is my property and you don't pay any surcharge or commission as I pay for the advert and the prices are known when we agree. Outside: You are on holiday in the town, on the beaches in the national parks. That is why are you on holiday and at home you probably have many living areas but maybe not clear sea, sun, roman ruins, beaches etc... Weather is nice and sea is warm, ideal for holiday. Idea of a holiday in my place is to spend reasonable (you can easily compare the prices with others) amount of money on accommodation which is nice and clean and in ideal position for all your activities during the day or evening and to spend the rest of the money on those activities, dinners, drinks, excursions etc. After all most of the things you remember from your holiday is what you did and what you enjoyed. If you prefer 5 star hotel go for it but there is plenty to do and enjoy in Zadar and Croatia that you will spend most of the time outside actually doing it. Remember this is Mediterranean a beautiful part of Europe with nice weather sea and plenty of natural and man made attractions waiting for you.

OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS Stay in Zadar and see more of Croatia in relaxed, comfortable and informed way (one day for 2 people, car, petrol and driver and guide included; attractions tickets and food not included). Payment on the day of the excursion, further details and prices available on request. Those are just recommended itineraries based on our experiences what people like and what is possible to see in a day but we can change it according to your preferences. More details about those places easily available from official web sites and town's internet pages.

Coast/Beach:

Beaches all around, walking distance from 100m away to many islands reachable by ferry which leaves every hour takes 25 minutes to get there and costs about £2-3-4 depends from the remoteness. To the nearest island ferry goes like local bus, every hour there and back until midnight. You can stroll around, swim or climb local peak and admire the view or just sit in the restaurant and admire people in general. Very cheap and convenient and nice.

Travel:

We can provide all necessary transfers upon agreement. Rates are very reasonable as I know you can check taxi etc. but they will not take you into old pedestrianized centre. As I am local I can do that and help with the luggage.

Distances:

We are in the centre of the town. You don't need to spend money on public transport to get to anywhere. But if you like to go to the local islands, ferries leave just 100m away and for the small price you can go to different islands (explore and change) find remote beaches but still with amenities, restaurants and supermarkets. Staying in town centre means that you will not be bored and can see more things as all transport leaves from here. It is not possible to go from the island to the island.

Further Details:

Centre of the town position. Just walk out and amenities, culture or fun is there. Located on the main pedestrian street (on the quiet side street) full of restaurants, cafes and shops, free open air concerts daily in town in the high season. Supermarket 100 m away, 3 min walk. Town fruit and vegetable farmers market and fish market by the supermarket. Fresh fruit and veg directly from local producers available daily. Sea front 3 min away on both sides of peninsula. Ferries for local islands and beaches 3 min away (about £2 one way ticket). They leave every hour for 20 minutes trip from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.. Local buses 10 min walk away or we can take you where you wish by car on agreement. Very good sailing area in Kornati national park, possible boat hire nearby if you would like to explore the area by sail or motor boat or enjoy some fishing.
