Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, sleeps 10-12. Maid service included, chef optional

Resting above Duboka Bay, Villa Duboka is a first row to the sea, wooded property located in 2000sqm of beautifully landscaped gardens (leading down to a private swimming platform) with amazing views, broad terraces and lovely Brac stonework. Amenities include an infinity pool (24sqm), table tennis table, badminton court, kayaks, SUP and bicycles. In villa catering, grocery delivery, boat charter and massage service is available on request. The villa film above (scroll to 25 of 25) gives an idea of the layout and landscaping.

Villa Duboka’s award winning architecture, floor-to-ceiling doors, large picture windows and beautiful Brac stonework capture the soul of Brac. Especially captivating are the open plan living room and master bedroom, both with floor-to-ceiling doors opening onto broad Brac stone terraces.

The villa is well known for its spectacular views and enchanting indoor/outdoor lifestyle. It was designed to give the feeling of not knowing where the inside ends and the outside begins - and it succeeds.

Villa Duboka is one of the most desirable retreats on the Adriatic. The harbour of Milna is within walking distance (less than 3 kilometres) with cafes along the harbour, local shops, konobas, restaurants and beaches.

This villa is perfect for families and outdoor living.

Airport Transfers and Boat Rental: Guests have the option to transfer by taxi boat directly from the airport to the villa mooring (or Milna Town - 3km away). Rental cars can be delivered to the villa by prior arrangement. Villa Duboka has negotiated with a selection of local charter companies to deliver skippered or dry hire boats to the bay. Exciting day excursions to Hvar and the surrounding islands for up to 11 people are also available as well as an extensive program of tailor made activities for all ages (including wine tours, sea kayaking, sailing & windsurfing, rock climbing and meditation ).

Environmentally friendly: In Duboka Bay we try to respect the environment. We are part of a solar community designed to respect the nature and beauty of our island and to preserve the environment. The villas have a small environmental footprint with solar power and generator for backup, while ensuring your comfort and use. Villa Duboka is designed to respect the nature and beauty of our island and to preserve the environment. The villa follows the United Nations World Tourism and other environmental organizations’ guidelines for Sustainable and Responsible tourism to promote good environmental practices, to support local culture and to preserve Duboka Bay and its surroundings.

Villa Duboka is a solar home, uses natural finishes and local materials, utilizes local resources and craftsmen and supports local businesses. We ask guests to respect our area and to be environmentally conscientious.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family of 5 stayed at this villa from 5/27/12 to 6/4/12. The villa was exactly as advertised. The villa is very spacious and well thought out. Of note is that most rooms including the guest house have their own separate keyed entrance which is great when vacationing with more than one family. The villa is also very airy with several large windows and huge sliding doors that give the feeling of vacationing al-fresco. Another refreshing feature is that the house runs mainly on solar power which for those of us green consumers is a nice bonus. The master suite was breathtaking with its private terrace and huge sliding doors which opened up almost a 180 degree open panorama to the warm Med. breezes. The surrounding land was abundant which made exploring the flora and fauna very fun for our girls. The staff and property management were extremely friendly and professional which made us feel right at home. Lastly the people of both Brac island and Croatia in general some of the kindest, most generous people I have met anywhere in the world. I have already recommended both the country and this villa specifically to our friends and give this place 5 enthusiastic stars.

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa, wonderful location and amazing help from Martina looking after us all. Everything about the villa is superb, the lay out, the pool, the gardens, access to the sea, a lovely cycle into Milna and around Brac and trips to the other islands off the stunning coast of Croatia. The organisation before we arrived, during our stay and on departure was superb.

Listing 100% accurate, villa beautifully maintained, great customer service, certainly recommend, and the surrounding area wonderful. We hope to be back! Thank you.

An incredible home in an incredible place

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about Gavin's place in Milna. The home is beautiful, well kept and incredibly comfortable. The pool, BBQ, the waterfront access take the house to the next level. Martina was an amazing host- she went out of her way to arrange taxis and make suggestions for activities on/near the island. A highlight of the trip was in-home chef who prepared a delicious authentic Croatian meal. We loved this property and hope to return someday! Thank you Gavin & Martina for the trip of a lifetime!

Fabulous location and beautiful property. Excellent property manager.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in an Unspoilt area, tucked away yet luxurious. All mod cons you could possibly want. The sea was crystal clear and the pool a welcome option (in an absolutely perfect world the pool would be bigger but hey, I'm being picky). The villa manager was absolutely excellent and this really does make a difference to the enjoyment of the stay. We loved it.

Everything is there for a perfect family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of 11 (6 adults and 5 children). Everyone had great fun on the paddle boards and canoes - except one who couldn't overcome her fear of the sea erchins, but there was always the pool for the less sporty.

The house is very well equipped and little details - like candles, travel plugs, and Martina who is at the end of a phone 24 hours a day to arrange anything. Bol and Supertar were favourites of ours, but we're glad we chose Milna because it's unspoilt.

The children are asking when we can go back!,

Just glorious

  • 5 of 5

We have just enjoyed a truly exceptional week in Villa Duboka. The villa itself is wonderful, with every facility that might be needed. The short walk down to the most beautiful bay takes it to another level. Whilst we had a couple of great boat trips with a skipper organised by the incredible Martina we perhaps missed a trick by not renting our own boat to visit the numerous unspoiled bays to be found around the coast.

The details on the website are accurate, and we have but one criticism . A week allowed us to explore the island which grew on us the more we saw. Quad bikes for the tracks around the coast, swimming in the quiet bays that can still be found even in August and a trip to the Senjkovic winery were among the highlights.

As for the criticism perhaps the photographs on the website don't quite capture how glorious this villa is. The only solution is to go back next year!

Villa Duboka situated in the most stunning location, well equipped,ideal for a party of 10 persons

  • 5 of 5

Very well run Villa away from the crowds of August holiday makers. We hired a scooter, 2 X foot foot boats and on 2 occasions a speed boat all delivered efficiently to the Villa thanks to Martina , the superb Villa manager. We enjoyed 2 very tasty evening meals out on the candle lit main terrace cooked by the brought in chef. A truly wonderful week enjoying all the numerous facilities of Villa Duboka.

Map

Car: recommended

The sleepy village of Milna, just 2 km from the villa, comes alive in the spring and summer with yachts from all over the world. Local olive oil, wine and port tastings are a must in the village. Visit the local vegetable and fruit market, bakery and wine cellar and buy your fresh fish directly off the fishing boats in the morning.

Open air cafes line the harbour and the local restaurants serve Dalmatian specialities including Brac lamb, local grilled fish and peka made in traditional stone ovens. Milna Harbour is the bay of a thousand ships - safe harbour to ships large and small for over 400 years.One of the original coastal villages on Brac, Milna has always been a centre of culture and commerce.

Today yachts from around the world are drawn to Milna for its unspoiled village life, sheltered bays, spectacular boating and exclusive island lifestyle.
