About Villa manager
We were young couple when we started but now middle aged with two kids (but still young in heart ((-:),like to travel a lot and share our travel experiences with our guests.
Villa manager purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Villa manager chose Okrug Gornji
Villa has only three exclusive apartments,a lot of space around the pool,stuuning sea view and a great location on south side of island Ciovo. Restaurants are situated 200 meters from villa,supermarket is 150 meters far away,beach is 300 meters far away.What does it mean to you?It means that if you come here to relax and enjoy beach and holiday activities and eating in local restaurants you do not need a car at all.You will have a chance to really feel lazy summer atmosphere on island and forget packing and unpacking stuffs,childrens,etc in and out of the car every day.And instead of renting a car you can spend that money on other things.In case you need a car for a one day excursion,no problem,Closest rent a car and rent a scooter is 200 meters far away. International airport Split is situated 8 km from villa and we can come on it and wait for your family,drive you to villa and back.Our price for it is 12 Eur-o for up to 4 persons + driver(sometimes 5 if kids are small).Our car is big SUV. Changeover day is strictly Saturday in high season and most of our guests are staying 14 days.It means there are no constant luggage in and luggage out situation and cleaning ladies every day.We are not that type of accommodation and we do not prefer that. We are proud to say that although our villa is not a 5 star resort and not pretend to be we have had oportunity to host some very important and famous persons from politics and show business from Europe and Usa in our small villa seeking for anonimity and relaxation.From that reason we will not tell any names.That is what we are offering to you,relaxation and personal space for anyone.No barbeques parties,no wild parties.Night life is cca 1 km far away and easily accessible.

Perfect place to relax
Lovely owners, very generous and accommodating to all our requests. Only 5 mins to some beautiful beaches and little coves. Simply a great holiday. Great restaurants within easy walking distance.
Excellent pool and seaview,dont have to rent a car
It was one of the best holidays we have had recently.Villa is situated in quiet area in dead end street with no traffic but close to restaurants,supermarkets and beach.It was good for us to be able to go in the market in the morning to buy something for breakfast without even using a shoes.Beach is near too and it is very nice beach with some parts where trees are covering area and you can have some shade.It was good to find such a space to read a book and watch kids in the sea.
Owner picked us from airport and returned us back at the end of our holidays and all worked good.We did not have to rent a car so we saved a lot of money on it as renting a car in Croatia is not so cheap as we expected.We spent that money in local restaurants instead.There are many of them around so you can explore which one is best for you.
Pool is maybe a best part of it because we have had a huge terrasse by the pool where we spent most of the time.Pool is very good size and it is never overcrowded so most of the time we were there alone.Kids even found a new friends from another apartment in villa (there are 3 apartments in villa).
We had a great week swimming, snorkelling and visiting places. It's a lovely island.
The property is an excellent size. There is one 'bedroom' which is part of the open-plan kitchen-cum-diner-cum-living room, so fine for a family set up. The other bedroom with futon is separate and leads onto the bathroom. All rooms are a good size. The open-plan area is very big. The kitchen has the essentials, although did not see a microwave at the time. This was not a problem for us. I wasn't sure if the oven was working and apologies to Vanda as I should have mentioned this to her. Vanda - the owner - was lovely. She picked us up at midnight and then early morning on our return. She was very helpful in providing us with where to go for beaches and shops. There was also plenty of towels for us. Pool was lovely too. Wonderful stay.
Professional attitude owner,easy going holidays
Professional approach of the owner was a good starting point for a excellent holidays in Croatia for our family.Our flight was delayed for a few hours and as we asked for a transfer from a owner we were very afraid that there will be noone to wait for us at the airport because of the flight arrival changes.Our kids are small,we were exausted and it was after midnight when we finally get there.But all our fears disappeared when we saw someone with our name written on paper waiting on the exit from airport building.What a relief.Owner took our luggage in a luxury SUV and explained that he checked our flight online and knew that we will be late.Drive to villa took some 20 minutes and check in was very fast because kids were already sleeping.
In the morning when we woke up and saw blue sky,blue sea and swimming pool in front of us we knew that it will be great time for us.Few minutes later kids were in the pool and our holidays really started.
Location of the villa was very good for our needs as we could walk anywhere without a car.Local beach was excellent, I can not remember any other place on our trips where we saw such a nice colour of the sea.And it was a cristal clear water,excellent for a snorkeling.Local restaurants are very good,food is mainly italian and people are very friendly everywhere.There are many organized tours with boats so you can visit almost any part of the Croatia from this location.We took Three islands tour,trip to National Park Plitvice and one day excursion to island Hvar and that was enough for us.Most of the time we have spent around the pool and on the beach and visiting Trogir in the evenings.
Two weeks later owner came again,unfortunatly it was a time for us to leave.He even let us stay a few hours extra in apartment because he already knew when next guests are coming.Transfer was again nice and easy,he calculated well extra time for a traffic jams on the bridge and we were on the airport two hours before our flight.
Next year we will choose some other destination as we always do but our holidays in Croatia were suprisingly good and we did not encounter any problems except a flight delay.We will return some day for sure.
No need for a car,good location
It was our first visit to Croatia so we did not know what to expect and how to get most from our holidays.Biggest concern was do we need a car or not.Renting a car for 14 days costs a lot,and if you do not use it too much than it is waste of money.
So we have decided not to rent it in advance.We planned to come there and decide later.And we made a good decision.
Villa is at walking distance to the beach,supermarkets and many restaurants,there is a boat line to old town Trogir every half of hour until midnight and even another boat line to Split.We managed to visit islands Hvar and Brac too during our stay ( frequent ferry lines from Split during all day ).
Owners waited for us at the airport and drove us to villa and back.It was relaxing time for us all together.And full of sunshine.
Relaxing villa near beach
Very nice villa,close to the beach,restaurants.Owner waited for us at airport and we came in villa in about twenty minutes after we have landed.After long journey it was best thing for us.
Apartment is very big and has huge bathroom and swimming pool is just a few steps from living room.Kids enjoyed that fact during all stay.As we came there in October we have had some rainy days during our stay and we used it to visit Split and big shopping malls there.It was easy to get there and not too far away.I think it is about 30 km in one way.we have also visited National Park Krka, very nice place too.
Overall we can recommned this villa because of its position,situated in quiet area but close to beach and restaurants.
OUR LOCATION - Set in Businci Bay the most prestigious area of half island Ciovo with fantastic beaches with blue crystal sea 300m.
A fabulous location next door to Trogir Unesco 4 km and Okrug Gornji village 500 m , the ideal place to stay when enjoying Trogir and Dalmatia region are all easy when you make Villa your home in Croatia.
Split airport with direct low cost flights 8 km and you are in cca.15 min in villa- we are organizing transport for you on demand.

No need for a car as all holiday activities and resturants are on walking distance.There is a regular boat line to Trogir old town every 20 minutes whole day until midnight which means you can go in Trogir in any time you want.Drives takes 10 minutes.There is a regular bus line too.From Trogir there is another boat line that goes to Split (main town in this region)and from there you can catch a ferry to islands Hvar or Brac or Solta for a one day excursion.So you can see so many most popular destinations in Croatia with public transport and not too much effort.That is what makes this location unique.Close to everything and still an island where you can find your small bay where you will be alone even in high season.
Car needed only if you want to visit other top attractions like Dubrovnik or Plitvice.
