We stayed with Vanja for two weeks in September. We booked the downstairs apartment (I believe it's the smallest in the house) and it was just as described. Perfekt for two people. Clean, new, well equipped and with our own terrace out the back.
There is a roof top that everybody can use and a pool inside, right next to the down stairs apartment. The roof top terrace is perfect for watching the sunset or sunrise!
Vanja is a great host, she always goes the extra mile, nothing is too much trouble for her!
When I asked about a good hair dresser, she made an appointment for me, dropped me off and picked me back up.
When we asked about a broom so we could sweep our apartment, we came back to a fully cleaned apartment, washed dishes, changed bed sheets and towels.
When you stay with Vanja, it's like staying in a hotel!
Whenever you're not sure about where to eat or shop, Vanja will help you out! We've never had such a lovely host who asks us if we are okay, if something is needed, on a daily basis! When we told her that we were rescuing 5 kittens (we found them near the haven, where the lighthouse is), she even offered for us to keep them in the apartment.
We enjoyed our stay so much that we want to book the same apartment again next year!
The apartment is a 10-15mins walk from the beach and centre of Makarska. If you come by car, you'll be able to explore the various beaches north and south of Makarska too- there are plenty! The mountains just behind the apartment are an impressive sight. Make sure to go up the Sveti Jure (highest mountain). The view is breathtaking as is everything you will see on your way up! There is a lot of beautiful nature around Makarska and many different activities such as island hopping, snorkelling, kayaking, river rafting and more in which you can participate. You'll never get bored during your stay in Makarska! :)
Thank you Vanja, for making this the perfect vacation! All the best to you and your family and hopefully we will see you again next year!
