Andrew and Dani
Andrew & Dani were fantastic hosts! The apartment is just as it looks in the photos, and view might be even better. After meeting us at the harbor and walking us up to the apartment, Dani took the time to give us suggestions for things to do, places to eat, etc. and marked them on a map. As it was going to rain the next day, they recommended we rent a car to explore the island, even sending us an itinerary with some of their favorite places to visit. On our final night, my husband was trying to find a place that served lamb peka, with no luck. Andrew & Dani called a few restaurants for us and found a place (Alviz - fantastic!) that would make it special for us. Andrew & Dani were always reachable, and made us feel so at home.
Great Location and Breathtaking View
Everything was amazing about this apartment. We were met coming off the ferry by Andrew and Dani, and brought to the top floor apartment. Dani gave us a lot of information about Hvar, including what to so, which beaches to visit, and what restaurants to try (we tried a couple - very good).
The apartment was clean, sunny, and bigger than the pictures suggest. As it is on the top floor, the view was absolutely breathtaking.
I'd highly recommend this apartment to anyone coming to Hvar!
Andrew and Dani were extremely helpful and communicative. My parents were the ones who actually stayed, and they raved about how clean and nice the apartment was. One small hiccup we had was about the number of stairs that they needed to climb. This was completely my fault as I wasn't clear enough to them. Andrew and Dani were completely open and honest, and even suggested that we might want to look elsewhere due to the stairs and my parents' age. I assured them it would be fine, and aside from the initial shock, my parents were completely fine with it. Thanks Andrew and Dani for all your help and making my parents stay so comfortable!
As Daniel mentioned there was a shock from his parents on arrival but for anyone reading this review to get to the top of our home on the fourth floor obviously requires climbing stairs. Our home is 560yrs old and unfortunately doesn't have an elevator.
We wish Daniel and his parents all the best and they are welcome in our home anytime.
Andrew and Dani kindly met us off the boat and helpfully carried my partner's bag up all the steps to the apartment. We were given a good heads up about the local area and they were friendly throughout. Their place couldn't be any more conveniently located and the view from the window is worth the money alone.
Andrew and Dani are amazing hosts. They were super helpful in recommending places to see, restaurants to try, and activities to do around the island. And their home is great, it's perfectly located just off the main square and absolutely beautiful. If staying in hvar town this should be your top choice!
We had a fantastic stay with Dani and Andew in Hvar Town. Hvar was our favourite place we visited in Croatia. We visited just after the peak season so it was still warm and sunny but it was peaceful and chilled which was exactly what we wanted. The bars and restaurants were still busy but with a much more laid back vibe. We stayed in the studio at the top of the house. The room was gorgeous, with a view over the town, harbour and out to sea. It was very nicely decorated, and the shared bathroom was lovely - smart, modern and clean. It was fantastic value for money, especially considering the location in the centre of the old town, the amount of space we had and the sea view. Dani met us off the boat and it was lovely chatting to her as we strolled back to the house. Andrew spent plenty of time with us giving us all the info we needed about our stay with them and things to do on Hvar and the surrounding islands. We had some fantastic seafood at the restaurant just around the corner from the house, with the wicker basket lampshades, and the service there was great too. We were only on Hvar for two nights but we definitely want to go back and stay for longer. When we do, we intend to stay with Dani and Andrew again. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Andrew And Dani
Hi come and join us on the beautiful island of Hvar.
We are both well travelled and love to meet new people from everywhere and anywhere. This winter we plan on staying in Europe and travelling around :)
Dani designs and makes her own clothes which she sells locally and online. Andrew is a business English teacher in Munich.
Life on Hvar is very laid back and fits perfectly with us both, the winter is spent mainly relaxing, going for walks by the sea, olive picking, fishing and drinking coffee in one of the many coffee bars in the town.
The summer is when Hvar comes to life with many restaurants, bars and clubs plus beautiful beaches and crystal clear warm sea water. There are many activities available on the island ranging from boat rental, rock climbing, kayaking, sailing, day trips to other islands and the blue and green caves, wine tasting tours, scooter rental to explore more of the island and many more things. We can organise anything you may want to do during your stay with us.
We are both very friendly and really looking forward to meeting some new interesting people like you!
Sunny greetings from Hvar :)
Andrew and Dani
