This is one huge villa - Villa Rosemarine is one of the loveliest villas on the Dalmatian Coast. It is an impressive villa built of Brac stone (the same stone as the US White House). The villa sleeps 14 people plus baby cot (with 6 bedrooms). During the winter of 2010 the villa was fully refurbished to a very high standard complete with divine new beds, large French doors, stone floors, antique fire place, Juliette balconies, stone bathrooms with Phillip Starke white ware, new kitchens making it one of the most desirable luxury villas on Brac Island. The villa is 5 minutes drive to the nearest fishing village of Sumartin where you will find a bakery, supermarket and three restaurants and a number of cafe bars. The coffee culture is very strong in Croatia. The large village of Selca is also five minutes away which has beautiful architecture, small shops and cafe bars as well as a few restaurants. There are two new bikes available at the villa, perfect for getting to the village.

About Adele Hetherington
Hello my husband and I are lovers of fine things - good food, wine and beautiful homes. Our hobby is building/renovating houses all over the world to a very high standard. We love gardening and there is an organic vegetable garden at the villa for you to use.
Adele Hetherington purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Adele Hetherington chose Selca
We never considered purchasing a property on the Dalmatian Coast - in fact we knew little about it. The day we arrived at the villa we fell in love and left 2 weeks later the proud (almost) owners of a divine 6 bedroom, stone seafront villa - paradise truly found.
What makes this Villa unique
You will chill... no question - with a wonderful cappuccino or glass of wine, a good book and some fine company under the pines at Villa Rosemarine there is no way you can leave stressed!!! The staff will pamper you and care for your every need. You will sleep well with the brand new beds (oh a good bed is so important), and after swimming in the sea you will relax on the day bed and drift off for an afternoon nap....The staff can arrange cooking for you if you don't wish to use the culinary kitchen yourself or go to a local restaurant. The skipper can take you to little out of the way bays for a delicious lunch prepared on the grill and many other great destinations.

Absolute perfection in every way.
From the minute we entered this beautiful villa, we were thrilled with our surroundings and the care we received. The villa is tastefully decorated. The location on the water is perfect. Simon and Milka were always available to answer any questions and provide tips for enhancing our visit. The setting is perfect for a large family gathering with space for everyone. Our only regret was having to leave this paradise.
Villa Rosemarine - most amazing Villa in Croatia
We love Croatia and we adore Villa Rosemarine. Being right on the waterfront this exclusive home offers so much from high quality beds and linens to wonderfully appointed bathrooms. The kitchen had better appliances than my own home - wow is all `i can say about that! We arrived to a large welcome pack of goodies (enough for the first few days actually). The wine and beer that was provided allowed for us to just relax and enjoy the special surroundings and not have to stress about a thing. The cook came to the Villa and made yummy meals. The energy there is something rather special. Our extended family came together for a special birthday and the staff offered so much - they work beyond their roles and this made our stay something beyond our wildest imagination. The boat and Skipper were something very special as really the Adriatic is best seen on the water itself. A big thank you to the owner who was really professional throughout the booking process - we asked probably too many questions and she always answered quickly and now we have been we can see that she was very accurate in those answers. We loved September - the crowds are gone and the weather is great - can highly recommend it.
A piece of heaven
A piece of heaven! The villa has been sympathetically restored and retains a rustic Croatian feel with beautiful local stonework. Right on the water’s edge, it’s set on three levels with stunning views from each and an array of spaces to socialise in or retreat to. The pine trees add to the peaceful atmosphere. Bedrooms were tastefully furnished with the luxury of en-suites and the beds were more comfortable than home! The contemporary kitchen had been recently refurbished and well kitted out for any cooking you had in mind. The villa manager, Milka, was a fountain of knowledge about the island, with great restaurant recommendations and the option of have having meals catered for and exploring the islands by boat (skippered by Milka’s husband, Simon) took luxury to another level. Kayaking on the stunning blue water was a highlight and so convenient to be able to launch from your own jetty. The hardest part of this memorable experience was leaving. Can’t recommend highly enough - definitely one for sharing with friends and family and we look forward to coming back.
We contacted Bliss Luxury Villas because had heard very good things about them from friends and we specifically wanted to stay on the Dalmatian Coast. Villa Rosemarine was already booked so we were offered Akuna, a brand new villa situated on the coast just nearby. I knew very little about Akuna prior to arriving and from the moment of stepping out of the car was struck by the tastefulness and beauty of the architecture as set against the backdrop of the Adriatic. From material selection to design everything is first class. On the seaward side all rooms open onto patios by way of sliding glass doors, interiors are set in light colors, natural materials, fine furniture and original art, creating a wonderfully relaxing ambience. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, direct access to the sea, and a boat that can be rented for skiing or other activities on a daily basis. On the inward journey we took the ferry from Split to Supetar, and from there by taxi to Akuna. Returning we traveled by boat from Akuna directly to a dock located adjacent to the Split airport, which was so much easier and quicker than the ferry. We had an excellent time at Akuna!
Thank you for your kind words. We appreciate you taking the time to offer others your view on what we offer at our homes. We look forward to welcoming you back to your little slice of paradise.
We had the most amazing family holiday at Villa Akuna. To say it is luxurious is not doing it justice. The villa is stunning, modern and well equipped. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the local restaurants were a real treat. We had fun in the pool, fun in the sun, fun in the sea and of course the gym and sauna. The whole family loved the house, the views and the boat trips. We will definitely be back next year. Wonderful.
5***** STAR LUXURY HOLIDAY
We have just come back from the most amazing stay at Villa Rosemarine on the Dalmatian Coast. It is tucked in a quiet bay but easy to reach lots of great places from there - across from Hvar island we went on super day trips on the private resident boat with the skipper who showed us so many great places and took us to pirate caves and grill restaurants. What a great time we all had - the kids giggled more than I can remember and swam and swam as well as played with the fishing lines and used the table tennis for endless hours of fun, the older kids learnt to waterski with the help and patience of the skipper. This was one of those holidays that you never want to end. The staff were so helpful and the villa was filled with luxury items and kept to a very high standard: so clean as there is a nice team of ladies each day (with their neat uniform) who seemed to work magic on our mess... The owner was the one we booked with and we asked so many questions - she was really helpful and wrote back promptly with answers to all our questions. The cook that came in made such yummy food and this really made for a true "holiday" especially for the mums! The kitchen was better equipped than my own home kitchen. So to end...the layout of Villa Rosemarine is perfect for a family or group of pals as it is built over 3 levels each bedroom has a very cool bathroom - all new and rather swanky too...I can only say this is IT....we want to recreate this every year there by the crystal blue waters...a slice of paradise with light an artist would love.
Special interest holidays:
Our cook can show you how to make the delicious Dalmatian food. For those interested in history - we have an expert who can take you on tours of the region explaining all the point of interest.
Within a matter of steps you are in the crystal clear water....ahhh! The swimming is just fantastic right in front of the villa. We have a brand new platform with sunloungers and umbrellas. The boat can arrive directly here to collect you for days out too. With the 50 metre frontage the villa is very rare indeed.
Split airport is half hour to the ferry which is half hour to Brac then 35 minutes to the villa. ON the brand new boat it will just take 55 minutes airport to villa - what a way to arrive at Villa Rosemarine.
Nearest Village is 5 minutes drive or 15 minutes kayak. Another village is also 5 minutes drive both villages have restaurants, bars, supermarkets, hairdresser, post office, bakery etc There is an ATM at the local service station 3 minutes away.
We have a great local restaurant just minutes walk from the villa. The local wines are superbBeing right on the sea the villa lends itself to enjoyment with the resident boat and skipper so small bays with "Grill" restaurants and markets as well as water skiing.
Blessed with a sublime Adriatic Coast, Croatia is a treasure trove of Roman ruins, medieval castles, renaissance hilltop towns and perennial lush green inlands. There is truly something for everyone.
We really have found a blissful spot under the pines by the crystal clear Adriatic.
