About Sue Nelson
I first fell in love with Croatia on a sailing holiday in 2004. The crystal clear waters of the Adriatic are undeniably welcoming as are the people. I returned the following year with the idea of finding a retreat to which I could escape when UK weather or general stress became too much to handle. I now like to share the experience with others and find that they too inevitably have a memorable and enjoyable stay. We also share the wonderful location of our house in the UK which we have had the good fortune to occupy for over 25 years and which lies beside the River Blackwater. A self contained annexe with it's own garden onto the river provides a perfect hideaway for two for either short stays or temporary accommodation for visiting relatives or between house sale and purchase.
Sue Nelson purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Sue Nelson chose Tribunj
On walking into 19 Podvrh which looked nothing like it does today I had a heart stopping moment when the view was revealed through a torn curtain at a tiny front window. A year or two of not completely stress free negotiations with owner, lawyer, accountant, architect and builder finally provided the result you see now and I am eternally grateful to the little voice who first gave me the idea and then the courage and determination to win through! Many of the restaurants stay open all year round and are frequented by local people in the Winter months who are always welcoming and friendly.
What makes this Apartment unique
I have tried to make 19 Podvrh a home from home with books, CDs and games as well as a comprehensively stocked kitchen. Many of the guests also contribute by sharing their own music or literature. My property is also lovely in the Winter months with its cosy underfloor heating. I particularly enjoy the changing weather views and magnificent sunsets from the balcony in all seasons. The village is busy and buzzing in the Summer season but quiet and serene in the months outside. All the centres of Zadar, Sibenik and Split are on hand for sightseeing and facilities not available in the smaller villages. The National Parks of Kornati and Krka are well worth a visit too. In 2010 we added a motor boat for hire by our guests per day, half day or week. Please ask.

Absolutely Stunning Views
Our family of four very much enjoyed our time at this property. Daniel was especially accommodating in greeting us as well as offering insights to the area as a lifetime resident.
Great apartment with wonderful views!
This was our first visit to Croatia, made even more memorable by staying in this lovely apartment. It is in an excellent location - the apartment has wonderful views over the sea, making for some memorable meals on the large balcony. Tribunj is a quiet fishing village, but has all you need in terms of restaurants, cafes and shops. We got the key from Daniel, who speaks excellent English and was very helpful. His recommendation for a boat trip round the Kornati Islands is not to be missed!
I am delighted that you enjoyed your first visit to this wonderful country from the beauty of my balcony to the tour around the Kornati islands. I hope you may be back in the future even if it is to explore elsewhere.
Stunning view, delightful village
It is as good as it looks and we never tired of gazing at passing boats and fabulous sunsets. The village has everything you need but the scenery is stunning and Trogir, Split, Zadar and Bosnia are all in easy reach. A fascinating area and a superb base. We will return to explore further and savour the peace and tranquility the apartment offers while being close to boat hire and a good choice of restaurants.
I am always delighted to hear when my guests enjoy the village and the Country as much as I do and look forward to your future visits. Thank you for your lovely words
An excellent choice.
The apartment was the perfect start to out visit, and the views from the balcony are truly breath-taking. We loved Tribunj with its relaxed atmosphere and excellent choice of restaurants and the boat made our visits to the nearby coves and islands perfect.
Sue's apartment was perfect for our family holiday. The views are amazing and sitting on the balcony watching the boats go by and sun set was wonderful. Swimming in front was great fun too. It is in a great location with just a couple of minutes walk to the pretty little port of Tribunj with tavernas and a few shops. The apartment itself was clean, well equipped and homely. Having a parking space with the apartment was extremely useful. Hopefully we'll be back sometime!
I am delighted to hear how well it suited you all and hope to see you again another year perhaps. Enjoy the rest of your holidays.
Fab views from a great apartment in a lovely little town.
The apartment is clean and comfortable and has really good views over a series of small islands and on out to sea. It faces south, and so gets the sun in the afternoon. The balcony does open up so that you can retreat into the shade during the hottest part of the day and still keep the view. Or, you can go swimming. Access to the sea is just outside the apartment and down some steps. The water, when we were there in early June was warm and clear. Just watch out for those pesky sea urchins!
There are all the local amenities that we needed (food shops, restaurants, bars and so forth) a few minutes walk away.
Daniel is the local, on the spot contact and he is very helpful for hiring bikes and boats. He can also arrange a variety of trips to the various attractions.
There are some pleasant walks to be had in the area. We walked in both directions from the flat and both were interesting and easy to do.
Overall, we had a really good time, the flat was great, there were no problems at all. The local amenities were all present and correct. We will definitely be returning. Keith and Liz

During the main season there is a daily market in the square for fruit, vegetables and fish and there are two small supermarkets and other shops and art gallery. Vodice, a larger centre, has more nightlife and lies about 3km from Tribunj around the coast.
