Overview

About the property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 shower, sleeps 4- 6

Paradise Beach Retreat is Historic Adriatic Cliff-top Stone Villa above Spectacular Beach.

Vineyard estate elegance, old-world charm, and incredible natural beauty with a romantic sense of seclusion, creating a feeling among guests of having retreated to a spot on earth where life is truly…simpler.

Besides the gorgeous beach, the lovers of the nature will enjoy exploring the dramatic caves below the property. Guests can snorkel inside all-natural grotto, and explore small beach within the dramatic cave. The legend says that Mediterranean Monk Seal visited this cave in the past.

Activities like windsurfing, hiking, cycling, grape picking, wine tasting, and organized island tours are available from the villa. Villa itself has first class amenities: outdoor kitchen with stone sinks and counters made by local stone mason, custom designed wood cabinetry, local stone fireplace, porcelain tile Italian flooring, finest linens, custom made upholstered sofa, and original artworks

Arriving to Paradise Beach Retreat: Villa is located within easy access for a small private plane or charter flight for individuals looking for unusual prestigious vacations. Being the owner of the villa in Bol has always been my dream. The small village of Bol next to the Golden Horn Beach will excite all the age groups. Golden Horn, one of the best beaches in Adriatic, offers windsurfing, snorkeling, diving, and numerous beach activities for kids (trampoline, small playground, etc). Resturants are abundant on the beach itself, but at night you will find the great entertainment in the town of Bol with cafes, night clubs, restaurants, cinema, shopping opportunities at every corner.

It is truly great being only 7km away from the vibrant summer town of Bol, but if you want to get-away-from-it-all, our villa will not disappoint. Follow the dirt road 5 km west of Bol and Golden Horn Beach, and You will discover the historic eco-village of Murvica with its famous beach, vineyards, and archaeological site of 'Dragon's Cave'.

Dining Alfresco: Few km west of Murvica, you will see 3 hilltops of the mountain peaks welcoming you. There, under the meticulously kept vineyards of 'Plavac' wine, are the stone walls of our villa, and the spectacular sea views of Hvar and other islands. Drive through the gate, and park at the top of our stone villa. Walk down the stone steps, and you will enter the beautiful outdoor terrace, and the outdoor kitchen. Our outdoor kitchen features stone sinks and counters made by local stone mason, custom designed wood cabinetry, local stone fireplace, porcelain tile Italian flooring. Outdoor kitchen is fully equipped with cook-tops, barbecue, fine china and cutlery, and pots and pans. This is your unique opportunity to cook outdoors with the freshest organic ingredients, just like the locals did for centuries. There you will also find the table for 8 people, summer breeze, and the million dollar view for your meals.

Our entire villa is powered by solar panels; guests are ask to use energy responsibly.

Marvelous Sea View Directly From the Bed: The beach below the estate is very private, unlike the hustle and bustle of Golden Horn Beach. We also discovered the beautiful cave, and the small beach inside the cave close by; the lovers of the nature, snorkeling and scuba divers will enjoy exploring the area.

After lazy day of relaxing, go back to villa where you will enjoy all the amenities of the luxury: custom made upholstered sofa in the living room, beautiful stone fireplace, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, cook-top, microwave, double sink, all the fine china for the special meals, and the original artwork.Entire villa has high beamed ceilings, but one of the bedrooms also has a special gallery with the custom made twin bed overhanging below the ceiling. This will be a great spot for your teenager or child who will appreciate this special bed from the pirate stories just for him/her. On other hand, you will appreciate your double bedroom with the morning view of the crystal clear water directly from your bed.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Paradise Beach Retreat Villa is an amazing, really well decorated little house located in a peaceful place among vineyards and steps from the almost private beach. Near the beach there was a dwelling place of an adriatic bear (this cave was a good attraction for our kids), while snoreking in a crystal-clear sea one could often notice octopuses, small muranes and families of flat fishes. The pictues of the villa on the website are far less beautiful than the place itself.

Heavenly respite for getting away from it all.

  • 5 of 5

A villa in Brac Croatia = the best beach house in California USA. We are an active, adventurous, couple of 50 year olds with luxurious tendencies who also enjoy rustic surroundings and the great outdoors. We chose the villa to spend a restive week off from our Croatian driving tour and to celebrate birthdays. Much to our delight, the property was almost exactly as advertised. Charming decor and amenities. Pre-Check with owner re: items on available list & cost to use (kayak). Outdoor shower was awesome; never used indoor shower but bee phobes beware. Cooking outside on terrace for most all meals was like camping at the Ritz with amazing views and comfort. Best to brush up on wood grilling skills if you are used to gas grills. Paradise cove was ALL THAT and almost private as boaters pulled in to share the shore. Nonetheless, we were not dissuaded from naturism. Very happy to have packed our Tevas for the rocky path down to take a swim and beachcombing. While there is a window view of ocean from front bedroom, you can't see out of it while lying down in bed. This was a slight disappointment to us lazy bums that envisioned gazing out to sea with coffee in bed but no great loss as it just inspired us to get up. The terrace is an excellent vista for watching the world go by, reading or drinking wine until you nod off in the lounge chair (again). If you rely on vehicle GPS, it might take you the back way into the property. We enjoyed the winding dirt back road adventure that lead easily to front drive. If you enjoy hiking and natural museums, make sure to make an appointment with Zoran for a guided hike up to the Dragon Cave (phone number is on road sign in Murvica) just down the road. We stayed the last week of June 2017 and we're happy to have a portable fan for a couple of warmer nights. Bottom line, we hated to leave and hope the fates lead us back. Thank you Iva & family for sharing your slice of Paradise.

Perfect Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house with private beach, located in a vinyard. Access is possible with a regular car, however there is a 4 km dirt road which leads to the property. Hosts are very nice and the house is amazing. We are looking Forward to our next stay...

Hi, one of the most beautiful places in Croatia. Perfect if you like to enjoy empty 100m beach and holiday without crowds. House is new with nice style furniture.

Robinson type holiday.

Magnifique petite maison

  • 5 of 5

Très belle maison, situation exceptionnelle, idéale pour profiter de la plage. La route pour y accéder est mauvaise (et m'a coûté la caution de ma voiture de location). Bien pour passer des vacances sans trop bouger, sinon pas grand chose à faire / à voir à côté.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. Our villa is really ideal "get away from it all" destination, and specially suited for the guests who enjoy exploring peace, and nature. However, all the hustle, and the bustle of Bol resort is a short 20 minutes drive away from the villa if you miss the nightlife, want to arrange the island trips, or you would like to explore famous historic monasteries of Murvica or Bol. 4X4 car is recommended as the portion of the road (about 4 km) to the house is unpaved.

*Ein Traum*

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 12 traumhafte Tage an diesem Ort verbringen dürfen. Wer den Luxus an Ruhe und purer Erholung mit dem "eigenen Strand" zu schätzen weiß ist hier genau richtig! Alles ist mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail ausgestattet. Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich und wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt! Wir kommen wieder ! Nicole und Dennis
