Villa Summerwind, Hvar island & Villa Luce, Dubrovnik

Good morning Voleja! I am back in the States and am beginning to settle in a bit. Sorry it has taken a while to get back to you.

First off let me say that this was definitely the best trip our group has ever done. The region, culture, food, wine and most of all, the people of Dalmatia were beautiful. The hospitality shown to us was unrivaled to any place we’ve ever been. We were not treated as just tourists but more like a welcome guest. We are very grateful for this.

On to the accommodations.  Both Villas were spectacular and fit our needs wonderfully well. Their locations, beautiful ocean views, proximity to restaurants and markets and to the City of Dubrovnik and the Town of Hvar were ideal for our group. Joszefine at Villa Luce and Igor at Villa Summerwind were the perfect hosts. Both were most helpful and attentive to our needs. Special thanks to Igor Spiljac at Villa Summerwind who prepared two spectacular meals for us while on Hvar. His culinary skills and knowledge of Croatian wines further enhanced our visit to your wonderful country!

I have a couple of very minor suggestions and comments that may be worth your consideration:

Villa Luce in Dubrovnik:   A heated pool would have been nice at the Villa, The water was a bit chilly for us old peopleJ

Villa Summerwind:  I would have liked to see the kitchen appointed a bit better with sharper knives, chopping boards, pots and pans etc. We like to prepare food and cook ourselves a bit while travelling and so it would have been nice to have more tools in the kitchen.

Once again Voleja, we had a wonderful experience while in Croatia. It was a pleasure working with you during the entire planning process. You made it very easy for me to book the right accommodations for our group. I would recommend Secret Dalmatia  to anyone contemplating a visit to Croatia.

Warmest regards,

Villa Blue Bay, Brac Island

Dear Voleja

We had an excellent holiday and thought the villa was amazing
The view was quite stunning and a treat to wake up to every morning
The villa was beautifully furnished and equipped with everything required and more. A great feature was the barbecue
But above all the Villa Manager was outstanding. One of our group is a diabetic and early on during our stay his insulin pump broke down. Milka went to enormous trouble to meet the courier,who had travelled from Holland,in Split and bring the replacement to the villa-and so ensure our holiday was hardly disrupted. She was a hero to us
Many thanks

Villa Martelina, Brac Island

Certainly one of the best villas we have ever stayed in. Beautiful throughout. Spotlessly clean - not even one grain of dust. Lovely pool. Very comfortable and well designed. A very warm welcome from wonderful hosts, who could not be more helpful. Absolutely nothing to fault and the villa comes very highly recommended!

Villa W & W, Korcula island

We had the most incredible stay at W&W villa and would definitely book there again. 

The views were absolutely breathtaking and the interior design of the villa was gorgeous.

We had chef Marco on site every day cooking up the most incredible food and making our stay effortless. Not only was Marco an incredibly talented chef he was also very professional and kept the place immaculate for us. He was honestly the best spend of money on the trip and we hope to hire him again the next time. Every meal he created delicious food that was fresh and full of colour and there wasn’t a single meal we didn’t like. He even made us a fantastic picnic on one of the days that we took a boat out and he did us a gorgeous BBQ on one of the nights which was the best BBQ we have ever had! 

We also had a masseuse who came to the villa nearly every morning and started our day with a relaxing full body massage. This was the perfect way to start the day and was done outside in the cool sea breeze. 

Korcula is a quaint island with gorgeous views and a cute old town, there are plenty of good spots around that you can see by boat. 

We did a trip to Hvar which wasn’t far on the boat which was good fun 

Overall I would say W&W was the perfect place for us to spend our honeymoon and we will no doubt be going back there! 

Thank you for a fantastic holiday

Villa Meje, Split

Dear Voleja:

The villa was spectacular!  I visited it in November while on a culinary tour in Croatia so I knew it was beautiful.  Staying there for a week was even better than I expected!  The owner was lovely, accommodating and charming.  The place is state of the art and is kept meticulously.  Anytime we had a minor issue (like how to get the coffee machine to work), the owner came by in 3 minutes and fixed it.  We felt very comfortable and at home and used the pool, hot tub and grill.  The property is a gem! I would highly recommend this villa to someone who wants to stay in Split. 

Happy to give it rave reviews.

Best,

Villa Bibali, Istria

Dear Voleja

Let me start by saying we had a lovely time in Buje.  Having never been to Croatia before we are certainly going back.

Dragan and his Mother met us on our arrival at the Villa and were lovely.  Serving us drinks and some Melon outside, and giving us a tour of the house.  A quick word with the owner on arrival was also very nice.

The information pack was great and I think we tried all the restaurants that were recommended, and the food was lovely.

Hope we can come back again.

Villa Lady B, Dubrovnik

Hi

The villa is perfectly located looking out onto Lokrum island, all the rooms have sea views so you wake up every morning to a beautiful vista, the beach is just below the villa with a beach club, and access to watersports. The city is literally a 2 minute walk away with all that has to offer. The villa itself is beautifully presented, comfortable and relaxing, Ivan and Lucy really went the extra mile to ensure we were comfortable and made the most of our stay in Croatia. We spent 3 wonderful weeks in Villa Lady B and we would definitely go back.

Villa LaDominika, Istria

We have been in Villa Dominika with our friends for almost one week! It was perfect holiday, the owners are so friendly as they would be our real friends, very responsible. The villa is huge, super clean and you can find all the amenities you need from the dishes to the soap... We will come back for sure!! Love the villa which became the second home.

Kazbek Castle, Dubrovnik

Hello Voleja,

My family of sixteen recently spent a week at the KAZBEK in Dubrovnik. The place is amazing and everything plus more than we expected for our large group.  It is beautiful and centrally located ie a short taxi ride to the old town and the area has many fine restaurants and even two gyms nearby for my children. The service at the KAZBEK is excellent and I would like to especially mention JENNY who was able to answer our many questions and was able to arrange transportation when our group travelled beyond the city limits. The breakfasts were plentiful and included anything and everything one wanted to eat. We especially enjoyed the large pool and the cleanliness of the hotel. The staff made every effort to accommodate our needs and we thank them for this. 

In closing I would like to thank the entire staff for their kindness and concerns.

Yours sincerely, Norma Gibson, Vancouver, BC Canada
