Century-old house with large courtyard-privileged privacy in the heart of Jelsa - Apartment #2 in large renovated stone house with stunning terrace view

Overview

Property

Updated: 09-Oct-2016
Apartment # 1 (can sleep 4) and Apartment # 2 (sleeps 2)

Located in the very centre of Jelsa, this century-old property of Jelsa’s famed captains consists of two newly renovated adjoining houses, both accessed through a large courtyard.

Surrounded by exceptional cultural and historic heritage, the property full of character offers a special vacation.

Apartment # 1 (ideally for 2, max 4) consists of a fully equipped kitchen with bedroom, living and dining area, bathroom (shower + WC) and additional separate WC. The air conditioned apartment is accessed by an outer staircase through the 70m2 courtyard that is dominated by one of the oldest bougainvilleas on the island.

The spacious bedroom contains a large double bed and has a beautiful antique wardrobe and dresser. In the living area there is a double sofa bed, TV and dining table and chairs.

WiFi is available.

With a view of the narrow streets of Jelsa, as well as the wooded island hilltops, the 5m long apartment terrace above the inner courtyard provides peace and privacy.

Apartment # 2 (for 2) lies on the 1st and 2nd floor of the large renovated stone house. It consists of a bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, living area and large (35m2) rooftop terrace.

WiFi is available.

The bedroom is furnished with an antique wardrobe and an extra large double bed (200 x 200). It has two windows with Mediterranean shutters, one overlooking the courtyard bougainvillea and the other, the quiet backstreet and gardens. It has air conditioning /heating.

The newly refurbished fully equipped kitchen with large refrigerator is next to the bedroom and has dining table and chairs.

The bathroom (with shower) is next to the kitchen and just by the staircase leading to the upper floor.

The upper floor has retained its original flooring and has a sitting corner with TV which is on the way to the spacious terrace, which is surely the highlight of this apartment. This nearly 360o view rooftop terrace offers a superb view of the charming nearby streets and the surrounding wooded hilltops and villages.

It has a dining table and chairs, shower and beach chairs.

Start your day with breakfast on the terrace before setting off to one of the island's crystal-clear beaches or secluded coves or simply enjoy a relaxing evening drink while gazing at the star-dotted sky.

The Sea has been an inseparable part of our ancestor's lives – a vocation, devotion and inspiration which can still be felt in every corner of the house. Appreciating it ourselves too, the house has been renovated with great care and attention for every detail.

Please note that both apartments share the same entrance and passage through the courtyard. The courtyard is used by guests in Apartment 1 while the rooftop terrace is used by guests from Apartment 2.

Getting around: While staying on the island, don’t miss Hvar, the town of exceptional monumental heritage, and if you’re looking for more dynamic evenings, it’s best to be there when the night falls.

For those who wish to discover the beauties of Hvar Island, in Jelsa you can rent a car, bicycle or small boat.

Local buses also operate to Hvar Town, Stari Grad and Vrboska daily.

From Jelsa, you can easily visit Brac Island in a day: there are daily excursions by boat (a 60 min ride) to Bol where you can spend the whole day at the well-known Zlatni rat beach.

Owing to its perfect location, the apartment is equally suitable in low season when the town is quieter, and the favourable climate of the island offers you a possibility to discover the nearby villages, either driving, or walking through the rich vegetation along the vineyards that yield the island's well-known wines, olive groves and fields with a multitude of medicinal herbs.

Arriving in Jelsa: The nearest airport is Split with a shuttle service from airport to Split harbour (30 km). The bus stops next to the Jadrolinija ticket office where you can buy tickets either for the catamaran to Jelsa (via Bol) 2hrs or for the passenger/car ferry (2hrs) to Stari Grad and then continue by local bus to Jelsa (20 min).

If you would like taxi collection from Stari Grad this can be arranged.

Charming, characterful and quiet location

  • 5 of 5

From the outset we knew that this would be a great place to stay ! Communication with the owner, Lada, was excellent and her responses to our enquiries were always prompt, informative and friendly.

The house had a beautiful courtyard framed by bougainvillea and passion flower and the upstairs apartment was everything we wanted - spacious, clean and comfortable. Set in a good central location just out of the bustle of the port, we felt at home.

We hired bicycles for the week to explore the coastline, finding wonderful quiet coves to enjoy the Croatian sunshine and swim in the crystal clear sea. In the evening we would wander into the town and eat in one of the many excellent restaurants. As it was the last week of August, we experienced the wine festival - Jelsa becoming a vibrant, bustling community in contrast to quieter nights.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Capt Nikos house... and we are already planning to return next year!

Do not hesitate! Just book it!

  • 5 of 5

If you have come to this apartment looking for a unique property in a picturesque setting with peace, tranquility but also the chance of adventure then look no further. Do not risk missing out by looking else where. I fell in love with Apartment 2, Captain Niko's the moment I looked at the pictures and I fell even more when I arrived. It provides the perfect base for your holiday. We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the balcony, listening to the church bells. Sunday was a treat! I worried that, as someone who loves their sleep, the bells would make me grumpy. I was so wrong and I so miss opening out the shutters and listening to the sounds outside. The facilities have everything you may require. The apartment was spotless and has been very well taken care of.

The owners were extremely helpful with travel plans to and from the island. There is a whole folder full of information provided on arrival with advise and ideas to improve your holiday with the best places to eat, location of supermarkets, where to hire etc.

Jelsa itself is my dream destination. Take a bike, a kayak or a walk to a secret cove to swim, snorkel or just bask in the glorious sun away from any crowds. We walked to Vbroska, the next village along the coast one day. We also caught a bus to Hvar. It takes 40-50mins but so worth it because there is so much beauty to look at along the way and Hvar is stunning. We hung out, danced and watched the sunset at Hula Hula bar whilst there (it's where the cool people go, we were just pretending for one evening!).

Every evening we walked into the harbor in Jelsa and were spoilt for choice for restaurants. There are even a couple of bars to sit, have a cocktail and people watch. Heaven.

I would highly recommend Jelsa and Captain Niko's. I do not need to recommend to friends and family as they have already seen our pictures and fallen in love too! We are a couple in our early 30's/late 20's and the island was perfect for us. We do not like the big 'resort' holidays with all the bustle that comes with that environment. At the same time we like to have things to see and do should we choose. Hvar and Jelsa are the perfect setting as you can be as social or secluded as you choose and all within the quirky Captain Niko's.

My only concern is that too many amazing reviews will mean that it is fully booked next time we want to visit!

Charming accommodation on a beautiful island

  • 5 of 5

A charming and well equipped traditional stone house right in the centre of the quiet town and harbour of Jelsa. We really enjoyed the views from the roof terrace of the square by the church and fortress and of the hills overlooking the town. The open air shower on the roof was a great bonus after a day spent swimming in the sea. The kitchen was very well equipped. We also enjoyed the lovely views from the bedroom windows of the hills and of the beautiful bourgainvillea growing in the court yard. Lada was a great host and she made us feel very welcome she also had lots of interesting and useful information about the town and island. There are many rocky coves along the shore line where you can swim in the crystal clear waters. We hired bikes and enjoyed cycling along the coast and to the town of Vbroska and beyond. The town of Hvar is also well worth a trip. Getting there by bus is really easy and very cheap. I would recommend taking the water taxi out to the islands. There are so many excellent restaurants in Jelsa, both by the harbour and up the hill at the back of the town. We didn't have a bad meal all week. Excellent for fish lovers! All in all, a fantastic week.

Beautiful old house in the heart of Jelsa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the upstairs apartment, which was beautifully presented and well equipped, with a single air conditioning unit in the bedroom. There was a lovely roof terrace with table, chairs and a shower for hot summer days. We had breakfast there most mornings. The apartment is very conveniently located in the centre of Jelsa but also very quiet being one square back from the front. If you're lucky enough to be there on a Sunday you may hear the choir from the rooftop terrace. Jelsa itself is beautiful with several great bars, restaurants and swimming spots.

Gorgeous apartment with terrace a real added bonus

  • 5 of 5

Lovingly renovated apartment in gorgeous traditional house with courtyard entry, steeped in family history. Lada and Tony were very helpful, met us at the bus station, helped sort out a forward travel glitch and sent back forgotten glasses to us.

The apartment is very spacious, clean and comfortable and has a very well equipped kitchen. During our trip we mainly ate out but the terrace at Captain Niko's with it's lovely outlook over the church and square enticed us to stay in and cook and have dinner there. There are 2 good sized supermarkets by the bus station which is a 5 min walk away and good fresh fruit and veg sold on stalls opposite open til late every day.

The location is great, 2 mins from the bustling lively harbour and surprisingly no noise can be heard from this busy area at night.

The church bell is undeniably loud on the hour (especially on the terrace) but adds to the character of the place and it didn't bother us at night when we had the air con on.

We hired bikes from T Club (Lada's recommendation) and a kayak from there too. If we went back we would probably hire bikes for the whole time as it's a really good way of accessing more secluded parts of the coast quickly.

We ate out one night at Nono's (up the lane to the right as you leave the house) and had a lovely meal there.

We arrived by ferry at Hvar town and caught the local bus over to Jelsa. We would recommend the sea plane if returning to Split Airport as this was a fun experience and a good price.

All in all we we definitely picked a good one in Captain Niko's House and would recommend it highly.

Unique, comfortable and full of character.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the upstairs flat and had a great time. Lada and Tony are very kind, gentle and helpful:you couldn't wish for nicer hosts. The flat is both very pleasant and very comfortable: it has a well equipped kitchen, good bedroom with air con, lovely cool courtyard and the huge roof terrace, with outdoor shower, sunbeds, dining area. It feels like staying in part of a house with character and history, rather than just another holiday let. It's perfect for a couple, and it's a great place to stay which is warmly recommended.
