The space
"Oh La La!" House full of character.
Privacy and quite escape on short walking distance from the beach and center of the town.
Tucked away from the main place in the LARGE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN, protected from the noise that comes from the bars in center and beaches, makes this house a kind of an ISOLATED RETREAT which ensures TRANQUILITY AND COMPLETE PRIVACY. Yet the location of the house is close enough to let you get anywhere ( to the center of the town, beaches, ferry port etc.) WITHIN MINUTES ON FOOT.
This special, wonder - full self catering house is located slightly uphill which ensures such a ENCHANTING OPEN VIEW of the sea and archipelago that the most stunning view on the island is guaranteed!

The plot around the house is 1200 sq.m. large and therefore isolated from the sights or sounds of neighbors.

It's surrounded by a LARGE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN with different kinds of trees, herbs and fresh, fragrant spices which invite you to pick them and put into dish directly.

This property consists of SEVERAL SEPARATE BUILDINGS and terraces linked into a whole as a unique architectural solution that reminiscent of a small hacienda which is dominated by Dalmatian stone in a green environment.

The MAIN PART OF THE HOUSE consists of two bedrooms (the third bedroom is located in a separate building next to the main house) a sitting/living room, a small kitchen and a bathroom.

A few steps from the house and terrace there are following SEPARATE BUILDINGS:
SUMMER KITCHEN , ANOTHER BEDROOM located in a separate small stone building next to a TOILET with washing machine and an OUTDOOR SHOWER which offers you breathtaking sea view. The set-up of separate (from the main house) bedroom and bathroom means that if two small families or couples are holidaying together and they want a bit of space and privacy this is ideal.
Also there is a big BBQ area equipped with an outdoor stone sink.

Beside a small kitchen inside the house, a really pretty and fully equipped SUMMER KITCHEN which is located in a separate stone building next to the house, features a large window overlooking the main terrace and the sea.

The house is especially proud of its 100 sq.m. LARGE TERRACES which offer an astonishing open view of the sea and the surrounding islands. One of the roofed part of the terraces features a long table that sits up to ten people.

The ceilings are high (2.2 to 3.5 m) asymmetrically vaulted, decorated with wooden beams and equipped with large ceiling fans, for those who do not prefer air conditioner. Air conditioner has a strong heating as well.

In addition, the house is equipped with all modern amenities which makes it quite LUXURIOUS!

UNIQUE BENEFITS OF THE PROPERTY:

- Exceptionally QUITE house
- ISOLATED RETREAT which ensures TRANQUILITY AND COMPLETE PRIVACY
The most important advantage of this house is that it is one of those rare houses tucked away from the main place and there are no other homes above it. It is surrounded by a large, green garden which provides complete peace and privacy. Yet is only a few minutes' walk away from the town's amenities (less than 10 min walk from the center of the town).
The house is situated close enough to the town center so that you are just a few minutes' walk from cafes and dancing, yet far enough not to be drowned by the loud music playing all night long during the peak season
- ONE OF THE MOST STUNNING VIEWS of the sea due to the lovely position of the house on a small hill
- UNIQUE ARCHITECTURAL SOLUTIONS of the property that consists of several separate buildings and terraces linked into a whole, reminiscent of a small hacienda, and white stone surrounded by a large garden create a very special, unique atmosphere
- This house is EXCEPTIONALLY COSY! Probably because we built it for ourselves, to our taste, with no any intention of renting it at the beginning!It is quite luxurious house, fully equipped with all modern appliances
- SPACIOUS TERRACES provide privacy for those in the group looking for a quiet corner
- JOY OF COOKING!
While cooking in the fully equipped kitchen, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the sea through a large kitchen window; right in front of the kitchen there is a terrace with a big table and an outdoor sink equipped with a BBQ. The mains water in the house is not only drinkable, but healthy!
- NUMEROUS FRAGRANT HERBS growing in the garden: mint, lemon verbena, thyme, oregano, rosemary, bay leaves, basil, sage... invite you to pick them and put them directly into your dish!
Therefore this is a foodies' heaven
- COMFORT AND EASE of a very pleasant journey from Sibenik to Zlarin and delivery of your luggage from the boat to the house will delight you!
- You can let yourself be a little bit more noisy than you would be in a less private property.
- This is PET FRIENDLY house!

OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE there are: a large Mediterranean garden, a few stone terraces and a balcony, stone sink and a big BBQ area just in front of the summer kitchen, an outdoor shower with stunning view, outdoor furniture ( a big table and chairs for ten), 4 deck chairs, 4 portable sun loungers.
You can see the sea almost from everywhere, regardless of whether you are in a living room, kitchen, one of the terraces, even under the shower!

AVAILABILITY and SUITABILITY:

This house sleeps up to 8 people comfortably ( i.e. 6+2 which means it sleeps 8 people if there are at least 2 children in your group).

This house is AVAILABLE ALL YEAR ROUND although IN THE WINTER MONTHS is appropriate for smaller number of people ( up to 4). This is because the summer kitchen is usually cold in winter and cooking in a small kitchen within the house is not suitable for more than 4 people. Also, an outdoor shower is in use during the warm months only, so that in the winter months there is only one bathroom in the house at your disposal.

This lovely house is a perfect choice for families with children, couples, groups of friends, pet owners, nature and long walks lovers, foodies and people who know how to enjoy the island atmosphere where friendship is easy to establish. Also, for all those who wish a great escape into pure ecological and tranquil zone very close to the city centers!

Zlarin, Croatia, Croatia

LOCATION:

Welcome to Zlarin - the sunny, green island of the Adriatic coral known as a pure ecological zone and peaceful retreat for those who want to escape from the noise of the city! Easy access to the mainland!

Island Zlarin is 3,5 nautical miles approx. away from Sibenik ( 7 km approx.).

The island is very well connected to the mainland by ferries which run from SIBENIK to Zlarin several times a day ( the journey takes just 25 minutes ) and from VODICE city as well.

Zlarin is a small, charming place where all the major destinations (ferry, shops, beaches,medical clinic restaurants, bars etc.) are located within a short walking distance, so car is not needed.

SOMETHING ABOUT ISLAND ZLARIN:

In Zlarin you will find: a store which sells all the basic food, grocery and hygienic supplies, bakery, ATM/ cash machine, tourist office, one hotel, several restaurants and bars, a post office, three souvenir shops that offer coral jewelry.
There is a new playground for the very young children in the center of the town.

You will find there two fruit and vegetable stall and a fresh fish stall in the summr months.A doctor holds a medical clinic in the center of the town and is available in the morning hours of the working week.

Island Zlarin is an ideal destination if you are looking for quiet, untouched nature, crystal blue sea, clean air, beautiful pine forests, a charming experience of an idyllic Dalmatian island.
Zlarin is called island of corals, the green island or the golden island due to the large number of sunny days a year. This serene island is a hidden peace of paradise that leaves no one unimpressed!

It is therefore no wonder that there is evidence of life on Zlarin since prehistory, from Neolithic times to Roman ages. On the island there are historical monuments from 17th century.

This true ecological oasis is located at the central point of the Adriatic coast, very close to the city of Sibenik - 3,5 nautical miles (7 km approx.) or 25 minutes by the regular ferry service.

The island of Zlarin is one of the rare Adriatic islands that do not allow cars which gives it a special charm!

As Zlarin is a traffic free island, you need to leave your car in Sibenik, if coming by the car. We would kindly organize safe parking for you.

You won't miss your car while you are in Zlarin! Given the small size of this traffic free place, all major destinations such as store, post office, restaurants, cafes, beaches etc., are less than 10 minutes of a pleasant walk.

This gorgeous island is famous for its long tradition of red coral mining.

Zlarin is not only the gift of nature, but also an island of great fun in a summer time when Zlarin hosts numerous fun and cultural events of all kinds.You will also love sitting in one of the bars or restaurants near the sea and enjoy the atmosphere of this vivacious island town!

COAST AND BEACHES:

On Zlarin, you will find all kind of beaches: unspoiled natural beaches, partly sandy, pebble and rocky, beaches for children of all ages and secluded, hidden bathing spots.

Crystal clean water (even in the port itself!) invites you to swim endlessly. Both you and your kids will enjoy the safety of the beaches. The sea has virtually no current and is startlingly clean.

The nearest beach is 10 minutes walk from the house. Since Zlarin is very relaxed place, you can also walk to the beach dressed only in your bathing costume!

You may wish to rent a kayak in Zlarin!

Long walking paths by the sea extend all over the entire length of the bay will inspire you for a long walks. The forest trails surrounded by beautiful vistas across the olive groves, vines, fields of figs trees and Mediterranean plants will also attract you to take long walks or bike rides.
.
JEWELS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD:

Although Zlarin has plenty to offer, we suggest you to visit its attractive neighborhood! Nearby city of SIBENIK, the old Croatian gem town astonishes with its bountiful history and many beautiful churches, squares and narrow marble stone streets. Main sites include the Cathedral of St. James, which is on the UNESCO World Heritage list, and four impressive fortresses.

The old town of Sibenik and beautiful open-air market are only a few minutes walk from the ferry port in Sibenik.Also, cities Sibenik and VODICE offer intense nightlife in the summer months.

Sibenik County is the only Croatian county that boasts TWO NATIONAL PARKS: waterfalls at Krka NP -18 km away and Kornati NP which consists of hundreds of islands, islets and rocks. Both NP are accessible from Zlarin by organized boats.

You may wish to make a private tour of the city of Sibenik and the Krka national park in the company of a personal tourist guide speaking English, Italian, or French. Or rent a boat with or without a skipper. We would be happy to arrange any of these trips for you!

Also, some of the numerous small islands that make the Sibenik archipelago are accessible from Zlarin through regular and affordable ferry service.

Young adults would love to enjoy a large, themed fun park "Mirnovec" which is 45 min drive from Sibenik.

For the little ones we recommend visiting the big children's water park, which is located in the hotel complex Solaris, only 5 kilometers away from Sibenik by road which is also accessible from Zlarin by a taxi boat.

You may also wish to visit the cities of Zadar, Trogir or Split as a day trip.
