We had a great time at Rijeka. The flat is at a very nice place with a beautiful view at the beach and a relaxing beach bar makes the room a perfect stay.
The flat itself is very clean and Matko gave us a lot of information about Rijeka and the surrounding area.
If you are looking for a nice cosy place within a short distance from the emerald Adriatic coastline, but a bit away from touristic crush and crowd, then this place is meant to be your choice.
Matko is a great host, young, well-educated, intelligent man with a delicate soul and a certain refinement in his temper. His company makes you immediately feel at home even if your real home is now away of 1800 km. He is also very helpful in getting yourself around in Rijeka and Croatia in general.
I was lucky to meet some great members of Matko’s family and I was told an existing story as they grow up here and as this place looked in the past, a peace of an innocent nature hidden I the deep seaside woods and covered with a pure white radiant pebbles. Nowadays civilization has brought to this place a dock for repairing of big sea crafts, which is no surprise as Rijeka known for being a big port of Croatia. Surprisingly this dock, which was well seen from my Matko’s room, produces no pollution, only noise and an opportunity to see repairing routine, which is an exciting thing for those whose daily life is not connected with the Shipping business. Also, night serenades performed by sailors waiting for their ships to be repaired gives even more charm to the place.
Water here is a big cooler than in Opatija due to the depth of the sea and it has no water barrages as do most of the touristic places, so it’s the real place to enjoy the wilderness of the sea.
Also most of the people, which will surround you in this place, will be not tourists, but common Croatians living here or coming here for job or leisure and I am sure you will enjoy their company as I did due to their friendly, open-minded and happy nature of mood.
I have really enjoyed my stay here, so good luck with your choice and bon voyage!
Matko was an amazing host! We laughed a lot, he showed us some good restaurants and even ordered some good pizza for us. His flat is clean, has a wonderful sea view and is decorated with some of his art.
We enjoyed the stay there and especially the beach (bar :-)
Matko was a great host. He gave us lots of information about the city, places to visit, etc. He has a beautiful apartment in front of the sea, 50m from the beach. Its 2kms away from the center, well connected by bus. We'd recommend it to anyone willing to visit Rijeka, Istria and the islands around,
I was so lucky to meet Matko and stay at his place...Great location with beautiful view, clean , spacious room and comfy bed.
Couldn't ask for a better host, very helpful with info and assistance . There's also a very unique beach bar where locals hang out and you can have breakfast and it stays open till 2 am . And its right down 1 min walk from apartment right on the beach.
Mall and food store is 5 min walk from apartment .
I was also lucky to be invited to join Matko and his friends on his boat and I think you can ask him to take you on the boat for additional fee. Please confirm with him about that , but the boat trip was awesome...you can see Rijeka from a different view and swim in the sea and to see the islands .
Highly recommend this place for stay!
