Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: We are expats from NYC , a multi ethical & cultural family living in Croatia since 2003. Being both Tomo and myself active in the entertainment industry for years, Omis became our ' quiete haven' while still living in NYC , when we would spend the summer school vacation months in Omis/ Split. We have travelled and still are, around the world, but always spend 4 weeks a year In Omis. Its natural beauty is un paralleled! While others love it to go out party , Brac & Hvar rule the European party scene, but for us it is total recovery mode before school and work season starts in september.

Why the Owner Chose Omiš, Croatia:
This house has been in my husbands Dalmatian side of the family for generations. Annually family reunions, a family vacation a place to reset your batteries or simply just save haven to recover from the hectic city lights. Omis is just that, but with the convenient big city and bright lights near enough when Peace and Quiet becomes too much....

The Unique Benefits at this House:
After vacationing in Omis since 1999, we are still mesmerized by the incredible scenery in this region. The mountains look painted on to the sky, while the fresh evening river breeze makes AC unnecessary the sky behind the Rive and Sea. It is so surreal and the scenery seems taken from a fairy tail picture book. We decided in 2012 to renovate the house to add some luxury to this perfect home for additional enjoyment and extended stays. We will always spend the last 2 weeks of August in our amazing beach house.
