Why Sarah chose Ciovo

What makes this villa unique

The sea view and enjoying the sunset while sipping on a good Croatian wine is unforgettable. Being literally on the beachfront is a big benefit too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

July 2014

Our holiday at Villa Kairos has been very satisfactory. We have enjoyed this villa and it’s facilities. Wonderful location and a perfect view of the setting sun. The garden has been renamed The Library. We have all been reading a lot while enjoying the sun and lazy days throwing ourselves in the sea. Thank you

Great villa/apartments. Very well equipped with high quality fittings and furniture inside and outside. First time we’ve always had a good nights sleep due to the quiet and efficient aircon and the very comfortable beds. This alone makes a huge difference as we’re not tired during the day. Great location as near to shops and restaurants.

We all loved the villa. It was great to have the sea literally on our doorstep. The sea is warm and lovely and clean and clear. We really enjoyed snorkeling. It is our first time in Croatia and we have been debating where it comes in our list of foreign places we’ve visited. For some it is first, for others a close second behind France. Most Croatian people we have found friendly and helpful, some we have found to be abrupt or even rude! We enjoyed our trip to the waterfalls and also had an excursion to a “three Island trip” with a visit to the Blue Lagoon. As mentioned, the villa is lovely. Great facilities, clean and fresh. The air-conditioning has been used a lot and has been a refuge on really hot days. Overall we have enjoyed our time here and would certainly like to come back. Forgot to mention how well organized everything is. Zoran is a great help in welcoming you to the villa.

We had a fantastc week, weather was hot but also stormy. The house was lovely and well positioned by the sea. We enjoyed the kayaks and were very grateful for the air-conditioning. Hired two cars and did a day trip to Split and some of the group went to Krka National Park and enjoyed it. We also took a trip to ‘Mistika’ on a day trip to Blue Lagoon etc. This was good value and v. enjoyable. Do take the ferry to Trogir, it’s lovely and a lot easier than going in the car. Trogir is very pretty and quaint, nice than Split.

What a wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

The property more than lived up to the expectations created by the description from the owner. Real care has been taken to provide everything for a great holiday. There were many items that would not be expected in an ordinary holiday rental such as canoes, bikes, hammock, wonderful sun loungers, beach towels, garden furniture and much more. This is no ordinary holiday let, it's a super one. It was extremely clean and well set out.

You couldn't be any closer to the sea without being in it! Brilliant. The sea was beautifully clear and had abundant fish life. Snorkelling and swimming in the sea was something we all really loved. It was easy to hire a motor boat to travel a bit further afield.

Local restaurants, supermarkets, ATMs were just a few minutes walk away. No problem getting the fresh bread for breakfast each day. Meals in restaurants were delicious and a very good price.

All the family, eight of us, loved our stay. The neighbours and locals were very friendly.

Boat ferries to and from Trogir made life very easy.

Nothing was too much trouble for the owner, Sarah, who responded promptly and in great detail to questions.

Zoran, who looked after the property was a very nice chap.

Would and have recommended Villa Kairos to friends. A brilliant place to have a wonderful holiday

Very comfortable seaside villa

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as photographed; spacious, comfortable and literally a stone's throw from the sea.

The property was scrupulously clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay in Villa Kairos very much.

Ideal location for a family with young children .

  • 5 of 5

The location was superb for our family which included 2 children aged 3 + 6. They could play safely in the garden , where they enjoyed watching out for lizards/gekkos. When we opened the gate we were on the beach - Ideal for frequent swims. A short walk in either direction and there were restaurants .Furniture inside fine but not too new so good for a family with children . Plenty of nice outside tables for dining and sunbeds , hammock etc. Zoran , who met us at the property, was most informative and very helpful. A thoroughly enjoyable holiday, thankyou.

A perfect place for families :)

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived at the house, we must admit, we were a bit nervous. Could this place really be as good as it seemed? It turned out that, yes, it could! First of all, the garden is fantastic! Many different seating areas; with/without sun and with/without view. The beach is also literally right outside :) We enjoyed the sunset there every single night. The house is general was very welcoming, clean and in order. Things seemed new and if not, well taken care of. The kitchen is very well equipped, there are even plates and such for children as well.

We were three families staying there, two families (with children) upstairs and one (the grand-parents) downstairs. The flat downstairs is quite small (no "living-room", but a kitchen, a nice bathroom and a big bed room), but perfect for instance if someone the group would like to live a bit more separated from the rest. The grand-parents lived there, and then had the opportunity to sleep in even though the small children were awake upstairs;)

When you arrive at the house, a nice man will meet you and show you around. He can also help you if you should need it during your stay. There is also very a very thorough information packet.

We should mention that a man and a woman live in another apartment which is connected to the house, but this was no problem at all. We hardly saw them during the whole week, and the were just nice and calm people.

I must also mention the owner (Sarah). I have never in my life met a more service-minded person than her. Incredibly nice and helpful! We didn't actually meet her in person, but you feel like you get to know her still, via e-mails and telephone.

I will not hesitate to come back, or to recommend it to others! Both because of the house itself, but also because of the nice customer service.

Best regards, the Aamot families.

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

The villa is perfectly positioned to make the most of the beautiful clean sea. Just a few steps from the garden gate and you're in the wonderful water. The beach was quite busy but that didn't matter as the villa has a big garden with lots of different places to sit and relax, either in the sun or under a choice of large sun shades. The air conditioning in the villa was also extremely welcome, especially at night.If you are feeling a little more energetic the kayaks were much enjoyed. We didn't have a car and that was alright for a week. We were able to walk to all the shops and restaurants that we needed and took the lovely boat into Trogir as well as renting a boat for a day so that we could explore around the island. All in all we had a wonderfully relaxing holiday and the villa lived up to all our expectations. I would highly recommend this for a holiday in Croatia.

A wonderful week in Croatia

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday with 2 families; the villa is superbly located right on the beach with lots of restaurants, bars etc in easy walking distance. We hired a boat to visit the beautiful surrounding islands and found we never used the hire cars except for driving to and from the airport.

The owner was incredibly helpful in providing lots of information in advance, and the villa was clean and well looked after. The only minor drawback was that the downstairs apartment has no inside seating area or view, and as it rained for the first few days it felt a little like being trapped in a basement! Lucky we all got on well enough to use the living room up stairs!

I would thoroughly recommend it.

Villa Kairos is located in Okrug Gornji on the Island of Ciovo which is connected to the mainland via a bridge. The village of Okrug Gornji is a short walk by foot and offers supermarkets, cafes, restaurants, a pharmacy, doctor, dentist, post office, bank, hairdresser and bakery. 200 meters along the beachfront from Villa Kairos begins a long stretch of beach know as the Okrug Gornji Riviera. Dotted along this beach are cafes, bars, restaurants...a great place to watch the sunset. At the point where the Riviera starts is also a small marina from which a boat shuttle runs to and from Trogir every 15 minutes from early morning until midnight which is a novel and enjoyable way to get to and from Trogir. Alternatively, you can drive 3.5km to Trogir where you will find plenty of parking. Trogir is reputedly the most picturesque town on the Dalmatian Coast and a Unesco Heritage Town. It boasts a world class marina, beautiful buildings, forts, cathedrals, and plenty of restaurants, bars and shops.

Villa Kairos is also conveniently only 10km from Split Airport however, not under the flight path.

With so many different choices of things to do in and around the area there's something for everyone......enjoy lazing on the beach directly in front of the villa, explore ancient Trogir and Split (both Unesco), drive the scenic coast to Makarska or Primosten, taking a ferry boat or private boat to Hvar/Brac/Solta Islands and the Blue Caves, wreck dive, jet ski, water-ski, quad bike Ciovo, swim in the waterfalls of Krka National Park or enjoy some wine-tasting at a local vineyard. You can also explore Ciovo Island using the two bicycles and two tandem kayaks of Villa Kairos.
