Property description

Enjoy your private villa, featuring a large garden, master suite with ensuite bath and private balcony. The second bedroom also has a large bath with a roll-top/clawfoot vintage tub (with shower head). The villa has a large terrace where you can dine and relax under the stars or enjoy a sunny afternoon away from the crowds. An outdoor shower in the garden allows for rinsing off after the beach or showering by the light of the moon. The comfortable living area has a modern kitchen (with dishwasher), dining table, and sitting area for cozy stay-in evenings.

Three Roof House was purchased by the owner in 2007 and completely renovated to exquisite detail. The renovations were complete in 2012. The result is a comfortable space with lovely village and sea views alongside simple luxuries like a master suite, private balcony, air conditioning, and private terrace. The fully modern kitchen allows guests to prepare their own meals in comfort and includes a dishwasher, large fridge, oven/cooker, and stovetop/cooktop.

The beautifully renovated, 2 bedroom/2 bath villa sleeps four comfortably in air conditioned bedrooms with room for up to 6 (sofa sleeper). The terrace and large garden provide you a private space to unwind and relax. Unfinished stone walls, sea views, and the peaceful surrounding of the village are the foundation for a restful and memorable vacation.

Welcome to the sunniest spot in the Mediterranean, Hvar Island! Hvar features everything from great beaches to hot party spots and more. Reviewed in the New York Times as, 'a recently rediscovered off the radar haven', Hvar is among the most beautiful islands in the world.

Three Roof House in Vrbanj village is your island retreat providing you the privacy, space, and quiet required to truly enjoy the Hvar Island paradise. Located within 5 kilometers of the towns of Stari Grad, Vrboska, and Jelsa, the villa offers easy access to the best island restaurants, beaches, and nightlife without the noise, crowds, and hassle of staying in a town center. Hvar Town, one of the hottest vacation and party places in Europe, is a 20 minute drive from the villa.

Although the summer is the most popular time to visit the island famous for lazy beach days and vibrant evenings, Hvar is equally beautiful in the spring and fall. Spring's bloom features lovely wildflowers and quiet enjoyment of the island's beauty. Hvar's famous Easter processional or 'Za Krizen', recognized by UNESCO as a non-material world cultural event, is a unique feature of the season. The early summer Lavendar Festival has drawn visitors to the village of Velo Grablje to celebrate the tradition of the fragrant plant on the island. The fall, with the island's bounty coming in from the fields, is an ideal time to witness grape and olive harvests and see the island's wine making in process.

Getting to Hvar and the villa is easy. Split airport is a 30 minute ride to the Split port, giving you access to the Stari Grad ferries (car and passenger) or the catamaran ferry to Jelsa (passengers only). On arrival at Hvar, The villa is 3 kms from Jelsa and 6 kms from Stari Grad port.

Although bus transport is available on the island and is easily accessible from the villa, access to a car will allow you to fully enjoy Hvar. Car rental is available from Split airport or on the island. The villa owner will provide information regarding parking in Vrbanj village on request.

Each of the towns near the villa are unique. The closest, Jelsa town, features excellent restaurants, a lively nightlife, and a nice swimming area a short walk from the town center. Jelsa is a great place to have a coffee or a glass of wine while watching the world go by in the central square. Vrboska is a boating village with cafes and restaurants and a beach popular with families just beyond the town. Stari Grad is the main port for ferries and has a rich history starting in Roman times with some of the island's best restaurants. Stari Grad is a lovely place for a lazy stroll and a coffee in the numerous cafes. The town beach is popular and stretches from just outside the town to the ferry dock. The walk along the beach from Stari Grad to the ferry takes about 20 minutes.

The village of Vrbanj, where the villa is located, hosts a welcoming tavern style restaurant, Konoba Bogo, and two cafe bars in the village square. A post office and village grocer provide easy access to basic needs of visitors and villagers alike. Bus service is available for transport to Hvar's major towns. Walking trails leading out of the village make for lovely hikes to the nearby villages of Dol and Srvice, or just walking among the hills and vineyards. Cycling enthusiasts will find the Faros cycling route runs right through the village - and bikes are available for rent in Jelsa and Stari Grad. Beaches can be easily accessed in Jelsa, Vrboska, and Stari Grad, or from the beautiful Zvala village just on the other side of the hills. Staying in Vrbanj village allows for a true Croatia experience.

Enjoy Hvar from your peaceful villa retreat in Vrbanj village. Escape from the world and have your choice of the beaches, nightlife, and old towns that make the island famous. Or choose to stay home and enjoy a quiet afternoon or glass of Croatian wine on your private terrace under the stars. At Three Roof House the choice is truly yours.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Three Roof Villa, is owned by Dana Stinson, an American who worked in post-conflict Bosnia and Kosovo for a number of years and often travelled to the Dalmatian coast for holidays. Returning to the area in 2006, she became enchanted again with Croatia's coast and islands and decided to buy and renovate a traditional stone home in the area. Dana chose to settle on Hvar Island which reminded her of her new england roots. Three Roof House is named for the three distinct roof-lines that were revealed during the renovation of the house between 2007 and 2012. One of the roof-lines was preserved in the living area, and can been seen in relief in the plaster on the first floor. The desire to live in a renovated, traditional stone home was a long time dream of the owner. Working with the island's builders to preserve some of the historical feel of the home while creating a modern, inviting living space was the goal of the reconstruction. Hopefully you will enjoy the results!

Why the Owner Chose Stari Grad:
This property, among many the owner saw on the island, was special. The large garden and terrace area provided privacy while the living space was spacious but comfortable. The renovation project was difficult and time consuming but resulted in the perfect home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Although the island of Hvar is special in itself, the peace and tranquility of Vrbanj town drew me to the house and to the island. The ability to be close to Jelsa and Star Grad towns, while enjoying the privacy of a house with its own garden area, was without match. Vrbanj is known as Hvar's 'living village' as many of the rural villages are either abandoned or sparsely populated. Vrbanj village has its own life and its own attributes of a community that make it special next to the larger towns nearby. The residents care well for their homes and fields, play bocce and soccer on the village fields, and have a pride in their village. I hope you will enjoy exploring the village and surrounding area.
