About Alison McDonnell

I'm working and living in Dublin, Ireland, I work as a marketer and photographer - I love both and have studied for a masters in the two.

We fell in love with Croatia from the first moment we got there. I manage a number of blocks on the island and I really enjoy helping guests make plans. I'm always available for a call or you'll get me on email.

Alison McDonnell purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Alison McDonnell chose Okrug Gornji

These properties are ideal for exploring the Split area of Croatia, minutes to a beautiful bay and all amenities are within a short walking distance. We've had almost 100 reviews written over the years with an average rating of 4.8 out of 5.

What makes this apartment unique

The views from the apartments are spectacular, waking up each morning to them is a delight. The 2400 year old medieval town of Trogir is on your doorstep and must be seen and explored.

A little tip.. You can find some secluded beaches to the back of the apartment block - they are breathtaking and quiet and picturesque.

Also you must check out Duga bay, just up the road.

Leonardos and Srdela are excellent restaurants - tell Luka in Leos and Roberto in Srdela that I sent you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We were delighted with the accommodation at Mavarcica. There were lovely views across the bay and the apartment was well provisioned and was very spacious. The two bathrooms meant we had no need to use the third toilet! What wasn't clear when we booked was whether there would be air conditioning (we were on floor 2), but there was and this was welcome as an escape from the hot Mediterranean heat.

The apartments were a short walk from local shops, restaurants and beaches all of which were well used and enjoyed by us.

We have not been to Croatia before, but found everyone very friendly and welcoming. Don't expect to bump into lots of other English tourists, it is a very cosmopolitan holiday destination, which we enjoyed. The sea was clear and the local water polo added an extra point of interest.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A must is the water taxi into Trogir and a wander around the city. We also went to the Krka waterfall park, which although busy had more waterfallls than you could shake a stick at - fantastic."

The season in Ciovo over the last few years has been getting longer. The season now starts as early as March/April and running right through to October and November. We have had many clients go over at these times of year and have really enjoyed it. We think there is a benefit for each month and it depends on what holiday experience you are looking for. For example the early months of March and April offer a relaxed quite atmosphere plus Croatia offers warm weather in comparison to the UK, Ireland, Germany etc. The high season offers very warm weather, a lively atmosphere, right in the hustle and bustle of everything. The end of the season offers the last of the summer sun, a great time to do some sightseeing and to get a feel for Croatia and its beautiful countryside.
Lots of festivals take place throughout the whole year. Split offers the Opera and Ballet. Why not go at Easter or Mid Term breaks. Call us at any stage if you want more information about the best time to go.

Number 7 Apartment Mavarcica with gorgeous Sea View of Adriatic
average rating of 4.6 based on 11 reviews

Spacious, clean apartment with fantastic view.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed for our stay. Our apartment had a balcony with a roof so we could sit in the shade in the heat of the day and enjoy the splendid view.

Everything was spotless on our arrival and the pool was well maintained.

The only thing that let down the property were the broken sunbeds/lack of shade by the pool and shaky internet connection. When we needed to follow up travel plans it was frustrating not to get through.

Alison was very helpful in the booking process and was very patient with my 1001 questions.

The roads into the village were rather trafficky but we found a shortcut which began about 50m down the hill on the right. We didn't rent a car but got to see a lot regardless.

A Return Stay - Great Location and Apartment - 5*

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a excellent stay in the 7 apartment!! We stayed 3 persons for 3 weeks and 12 days in the middle of the stay we were 5 persons. We really enjoy the stay! The apartment and neighbourhood was great. Especially the well equipped (almost new) apartment, nice terrace, nice bath/water and Trogir (market in the mornings and walks in the evenings)..

In Okrug we can recommend Katrina's (2 minutes walk) for the dinners and the excellent service and Leonardo's (in the harbour) for pizza, sallads, etc in the middle of the day.

In Trogir we can recommend the restaurant The End (recommended in the Welcome pack) and we think almost all places for ice-cream and refreshments.

To buy food we recommend Kerum which is located across the street from the main beach.

One day we took a full-day boat trip (Okrug-Solta-Okrug)wich was very worth it's price and all-inclusive with refreshment (incl local drinks) and food (grilled fish). Highly recommended! It was the same nice boat with wooden deck that was used for taxi in the evenings and the tour started and ended in the harbour in Okrug.

But for other excursions the heat stopped us. We only managed bath, relaxing in sun/shadow, eating/drinking (what can be better than a half litre of Karlovacko and a pizza or sallad in the shadow at Leonardo's in the middle of the day), relaxing and enjoying the breathtaking view (incl sunset over the sea and mountains) at the terrace in the evenings and relaxing walks in the evenings.

The service in the apartment from Vlado must of course be mentioned as well. Nothing was impossible for him!!.

Thanks again!

Great apartment. Lovely view. Comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

We booked this not really knowing what to expect. We wanted a couple of quiet days near a beach and that's exactly what we got. Well, near 2 beaches actually ( the further one is busier and the nearest one quiet with a bar/pizza place so you can see what mood you're in and act accordingly!)

The apartment was clean and comfortable, with air con in the main room. There was a lovely view of the sea and restaurant literally on our doorstep. There are nice touches in the apartment such as local info, a few books to read and dvd/cd.

The booking process was very efficient with prompt responses and really helpful staff greeted us on arrival and answered any questions.

We enjoyed taking the water taxi to and from Trogir - just a 15/20 min walk from the apartment ( it was hot so we took it slowly!). Trogir is busy and full of character, great choice of restaurants.

You do need to be reasonably fit as there are fairly steep hills from the beach back to the apartment, but this was not a problem.

Thanks for a lovely couple of days.

Excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very spacious, bright and well equipped. Situated on the top floor of a quite modern apartment-building it offers a big living room, a well equipped kitchen, two dormitories and bathooms and a lovely terrace where we spent our breakfasts and some dinners with a breathtaking view of the sea and the neighboring islands.

The island of Ciovo offers some lovely beaches (our favourite: Duga plaza near Okrug Gornij), shops and several good restaurants. The beautiful medieval town of Trogir with its excellent restaurants and busy local market can be reached by car or regular shuttle boat. We recommend the latter, to avoid getting stuck in local traffic.

Owner's Response: We are delighted with this review. Martin's advice about taking the water taxi into Trogir is excellent, plus it's a beautiful way to arrive into the old town. Future and returning guests might be interested to know that there is a second bridge being constructed that will ease traffic immensely.

Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre séjour de 15 jours en CROATIE!

La position centrale de l'appartement permet d'adresser, à grande proximité, les visites de Split et de Trogir, mais aussi celles de Zadar, Sibenik, Promosten, Dubrovnik ... Par ailleurs, la mer est délicieuse à cette saison et il y a plein de petites criques où l'on peut se baigner très facilement.

L'appartement est très, très, confortable et extrêmement propre : le fait qu'il soit au RdC ne pose aucun problème. Je recommande la location d'un véhicule dès l'aéroport pour faciliter les visites et la logisitique (courses!) car si le chemin est en pente descendante pour se baigner, il faut revenir :-) ! Bien-sûr beaucoup de touristes à cette saison et le trafic pour accéder à TROGIR (une seul pont) s'en ressent), mais le jeu en vaut la chandelle : je recommande sans réserve!

Holiday Bliss in Mavarcica Croatia

  • 5 of 5

I just had the most lovely two weeks in a very spacious two bed apartment overlooking the Adriatic. There were beautiful views from the terrace and I would sit there drinking my coffee every morning for a least half an hour. The apartment was so clean and very well equipped. There were two full bathrooms which made all the difference with young children. It was very comfortable. Alison has left DVDs and games which were helpful and the adults seemed to enjoy them even more :)

We did eat out but not as much as I thought as it was so easy to cook in and relax after a day at the pool or the beach. The pool is lovely but we adored the beach and went swimming in the clear water every day. Made for big appetites. Cooking in was easy because everything was there.

We were greeted on arrival and shown around the apartment. It was great. Fresh bed linen and towels were provided.

Trogir via the water taxi is a must!! And the ice cream is another must.

I will definitely be going back in the near future.
