I had a very pleasant stay at Nina`s home. She and her mum Passionaria were very friendly and kind, available for any request. The house is lovely, kept clean and with lots of comforts.
We had a lovely time staying at Mimosa. The property is in a beautiful old Villa that whilst outside Pula centre (20-25min walk or easy bus) it is very close to the beach which my sister and I enjoyed. The property has a bit of a B&B feel to it with the owners never far away and willing to help you with any questions to improve your stay or direct you to close restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped and we enjoyed the beautiful, new looking private bathroom.
Our holidays at Villa Magnolia were really exeptional. Beautiful house surrounded by an old garden every day "invited" us for a cup of coffe or an afternoon nap. Cosy room and a big bathroom (with a terrace!) complemented our stay.
The house is located in a pleasant (10mn) walking or biking distance form the beach or city centre - close enough to everything you need and far enough from tourists and city bustle.
Nina and Pasionaria were friendly and hearty. And their hospitality was beyond words. They were very helpful with local tips (where to eat, shop, sunbath), which was a precious thing, especially when you visit the region for the first time.
And Nina's massages, which we tried the last day, proved to be a hit!
We definitely recommend the place to others and hope to visit it again soon.
The accomodation was wonderful!
Beautiful and charming house and bedrooms in the south part of Pula. Realy "vintage"!
About 20mn walking distance from the old town, and close to the beach.
Nina and Passionaria were very friendly, helpful and flexible for check-in as well as in and out. Definitely recommandable!
Nina and her family made our first trip to Croatia to a really warm, great experience we would immediately continue. The hosts picked us up from the airport and introduced us to the area of Pula. After that, we arrived at a spacious villa, well connected to different beaches and the city centre.
We have got all we needed – a cozy room to stay, a nice bathroom and kitchen. Additionally, Teresa enjoyed her best massage ever due to Nina as professional massage therapists. Also, our hosts invited us to see an amazing meteor shower.
During our time in Pula we have got a very good impression of the region and the people, who are open minded and ambitioned towards the future.
It is a lovely place we definitely recommend to others.
Teresa and her boyfriend were really nice and kind persons, enjoying and respecting everything that was offered to them..very responsive,open minded... just like friends. We didn t feel any pressure or anything of the kind..we are so pleased such nice people are coming to stay in our house. Hope to see them again sometime...(Nina)
The house and garden are beautiful and the room was very comfortable. The family is lovely and very hospitable, it was truly a pleasure to stay there. They were very helpful finding me activities that would interest me and I was even invited to attend a concert at the amphitheater with them. A fantastic experience. I would recommend their house to anyone seeking an authentic stay in Pula.
