The Swallow's Nest got it's name from the fact that for seven years now there is a small swallow's nest in the roof of our terrace. They couldn't have picked a better place for their home because our terrace is quiet, secluded and it's the ideal place to completely relax.

Downstairs in the backyard there is also a small terrace at your disposal.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a lovely stay in Jelena's apartment and would definitely recommend it - it was the perfect base for exploring Hvar. The location is quiet but within a short walk of the main town and some nice beaches. There is a supermarket just down the road and Jelena was very helpful providing us with a map and restaurant suggestions. The apartment's terrace was the best part for us, perfect for watching the sunset or eating breakfast in the sunshine. From our stay in Hvar we would definitely recommend Dalmatino (restaurant) and the off-road and three caves tours. Many thanks to Jelena for a great holiday :)

  • Lovely apartment in a peaceful part of Hvar. Not far from the town centre (about 10 mins). Really spacious, clean, well equipped studio with amazing views. Jelena was extremely helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

  • We enjoyed our 4 night stay at The Swallows Nest. The apartment was just as the description says and the photos show. Jelena was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. We ate out on two nights at places that Jelena had recommended and both were fantastic. The only negative from our stay was the lack of parking at the property - we knew this in advance but decided that we wanted to have a car for the duration of our stay in Hvar as we were traveling on from Dubrovnik and we wanted to be able to explore the island (which we would definitely recommend). However, just to make people aware, what appears to be on street parking outside the apartment (where several other cars are parked), is not a good place to park - we discovered the hard way! Overall though, we didn't let this ruin our stay and would recommend the apartment for anyone looking for a simple but spacious and well equipped studio apartment in Hvar town.

  • Jelena's apartment was absolutely beautiful, with a great view of the islands surrounding Hvar. We had a pretty easy time finding it with a map from the tourist office, but Jelena was also very helpful in offering directions and things to do around Hvar. I'd highly recommend the swallow's nest to anyone needing a place to stay in lovely Hvar.

  • Jelena's welcome was perfect. She gave us a map and informations about Hvar. The studio location is closed to the city(Max 10 minutes walking). It looks exactly like you can see on the pictures of the website. I recommend it :-)

  • Very Nice Place, loved the view, and convenience of a close super market, Intertior is simple and a good style u see on the pictures. To the center is not so short we expected but walkable, even to the beach clubs on the west form the city. Or u simply rent a scooter or Bike.

  • The Swallow's Nest is fantastic and a great base to explore Hvar from. Jelena was out of town when we arrived but gave us full instructions on ferry schedules etc. and made arrangements for her Uncle to meet us upon arrival.

    From the apartment it is a 5-10 minute walk into the town and harbour area where you can pick up water taxis to take you out to the nearby islands. Only a few minutes walk away from the apartment is a mini-supermarket which has a bakery and fresh produce. The apartment itself was clean, spacious, had lots of natural light and the beds were really comfortable. The view from the balcony was amazing.

    I would definitely recommend this apartment. Thanks Jelena!

  • Really incredible place. Jelena was out of town, but she had her uncle come and pick us up at the ferry station. He was very helpful and a wonderful guy. The apartment is spacious, the view is incredible, and the deck is amazing. Grocery store is a block away, which is also nice.

    Highly recommend.

  • Jelena's apartment is so great! It's not too far from the centre, but far enough to escape the noise and bustle of town. The view is spectacular. Every night I sat on the balcony and watched the sun set. Jelena gave us some awesome recommendations for restaurants and things to do and gave us a map of Hvar town. The apartment is spacious and airy. There is a small grocery store nearby and you are able to keep food in the fridge and/or cook. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks Jelena!

Hi, I'm Jelena and I'll be your host at the "Swallows Nest" studio in the beautiful town of Hvar, Croatia. Besides being a graphic designer I enjoy working in my organic garden and baking bread, but those are more "winter sports" in the summer most of my family works in tourism. I grew up in Hvar and I'll be more than happy to point out some of the special places you have to check out while here, so you soak up the best of what this amazing island has to offer.
