About Adriana J. Kramar Heinhuis
My husband Erwin and I, Adriana Kramar Heinhuis, are owners of Villa Labin in Labin. We are Dutch but my origins are Croatian.
Adriana J. Kramar Heinhuis purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Adriana J. Kramar Heinhuis chose Topid
We built Villa Labin as our holiday home and a dream house. The building of the house is completed in 2010. We have been looking for a long time to find a good location for the house, an area in a relax and green surrounding, further from other houses but not too far away from facilities and beaches. We also wished to have nice views. We are very happy with our location choice and the atmosphere of Villa Labin.
What makes this Villa unique
The house really ensures privacy. From the house terrace only green areas can be seen. From the most of terraces and pool you can not see any other house except houses on far away hills. From the most pool terrace you also do not see any house or just tops of houses located further. There is hardly any sound to hear next to nature sounds. Many different birds come in the garden to look for food in grass. Flocks of swallows daily fly over the pool water collecting insects and refreshing himself. I am very much enjoying to sit on the house terrace and watch flowers, birds and butterflies on lavender.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
When we came across this villa online i immediately knew it was where we wanted to stay, as the holiday got closer my expectations were so high i was bracing myself for disappointment.
The reality was even better than we had imagined. The villa really is outstanding, it is clean, modern full of luxury and a perfect place to unwind.
I think we loved the outside space the most, relaxing on the sunloungers and swimming everyday in the amazing pool or sitting outside for breakfast it really was the perfect retreat.
Inside the Villa is incredibly well equipped with everything you could possibly need, the air conditioning was great but there is even a freestanding spa bath to really make you feel pampered.
The area is quiet, you need a car to get around but there are lots of nice restaurants within a short drive, we particularly liked Old Town Labin at night as the sun is going down.
We rarely return to the same place twice but i am sure we will revisit this villa again soon.
High quality accomodation
We spent a beautiful week of vacation in Labin.
We also find that the sea in Rabac is the best we have ever seen in Istria. Adriana's house is very elegant and has all the modern and efficient furniture and equipment for a pleasant stay. It is the perfect solution for a high-quality accomodation.
We appreciated very much her information for the stay and her organization of the house.
Absolutely brilliant villa. We had a fantastic eight days in this villa. There was everything you needed in it and all top quality. The pool was a good size which you could have a good swim in. Very quiet area which we loved with just the sound of a distant cockerel now and again. Overlooking a vineyard and olive trees it was just perfect. You do need a car but only 5/10 minutes from a supermarket. We visited Labin, Rabac and we also went to Venice from Pula which is a must. Look out for Dolphins which we had the pleasure of seeing on our return journey. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the people were so friendly. Thank you to Moreno for greeting us and to Adriana for great communication throughout our booking. Loved it.
Villa Labin is tucked away in a small hamlet about 5 mins drive from the main town of Labin where there are a number of restaurants. The villa itself is exceptional. The owner has put a great deal of effort into providing every possible amenity that you could wish for during a two week stay. All furnishings and appliances are top of the range and there is an abundance of cooking utensils, crockery etc. There is a generous sized pool which is maintained by the ever helpful "handyman" Moreno who will also give you all the information you will possibly need on the local restaurants and places to visit. As with the rest of the villa the pool furniture is top of the range and the most comfortable sun loungers you could hope for.
We have stayed in many villas around the world but this has to be one of the best equipped villas we have ever rented. If your looking for a peaceful location in 5 star luxury then villa Labin is for you, just treat it with respect as we intend to go back!
Nice house with fantastic pool in a nice quiet environment.
