Interaction with Guests
Your host Josip is great source of touristic tips - where to go, what to do and how to get there. Just ask him, he will gladly help you out!
Our house is on south, quiet area with nice view of semi-open sea and, most of all, green island Šolta. The view is relaxing and meditative, the street is quiet and ends "in the sea" or, better to say, on the beach.
Our closest beach is rocks leveled with concrete, used by local people and guests from the street. It has nice friendly feeling and we're keeping it neat and clean. Close to it is beach with pebble, good for getting kids adjusted to the sea or learning how to swim.
If you prefer, sunbathing is best on the balcony or the garden. Being only 50m from the sea, its easy to walk down to swim whenever - at dawn, daytime, sunset or nights.
Čiovo is a special island in beautiful Dalmatia. Actually its not really an island! It's connected to mainland with 2 bridges through Trogir. So, from Čiovo, you can visit Trogir or Split by car or by boat.
Not long ago, most housings on the island were vacation houses of people from Split or Trogir. Lately it was found by many European tourists and it grew as touristic destination and got fast up on "Adriatic's top list".
Okrug Gornji is biggest and most popular touristic center on the island. The village off-season is quiet and gets crowded during summer. Most amenities are around central beach. Most supermarkets, restaurants, bars and clubs are there. Tho true center is nearby uphill with post office, ambulance, pharmacy...
It can be quiet when you want it or crowdy. There are many quiet beaches or long pebble beach at center of the island - with water/beach sports days and bars with DJ's at nights. There are all kinds of restaurants, from pizzeria\'s to sea food specialists.
Of course Trogir and Split also offer many nice cultural sites, as quality restaurants or night life.
Tho house is in a quiet area of the island, but the central beach with many facilities is only 1km away. Daytime there are beach and sports amenities - for kids and adults. At nights the bars turn into busy night beach clubs with DJ's.
Beautiful towns from the UNESCO's World Heritage list are nearby: Trogir (4km), Split (30km), Šibenik (50km).
Our guests often enjoy day tips to other destinations, like:
National park Krka 64 km away, National park Kornati (boat trip).
Those are only most popular destinations. Depending on your preference, there's lots to do and see!
There is public bus in the area and taxi service, but not recommendable. Own or rental car is strongly advised.

In case of any problem, questions or damage don't hesitate to inform or asks hosts about it as soon as possible! Everything can be resolved - the sooner the better, and to mutual satisfaction!
My wife Lise and i spent 10 days in Donka and Josips apartment. It was overall a fully perfect and pleasant stay. It was as described in the advertissement really god situated 50 m from sea, well equipped and cosy. But the best thing about it is the hostes Josip and Donka. We were welcommed and introduced in a very nice manner. We felt very welcome from the first moment. There is a happines and warmth that you dont find many other places. We will shure be coming back and can highly recommend this place to all others
This was our first visit to Croatia & certainly not our last , Donka & Josip were perfect hosts, out apartment was as described with the lovely sea views & just right for the 2 of us. We loved Trogir, a beautiful place to visit, would defiantly recommend this to our friends & hope to return!
Great hosts and great apartment! We felt like visiting family. We'd very much like to visit Mrs and Mr Cukor again.
Josip and Donka were wonderful hosts. They were very caring and obliging - always eager to make our stay perfect. The apartment works perfectly for a couple, it offers everything one might need. The beach is very close and pure perfection, calm and clean. Also Trogir, the neighboring town is definitely worth a visit.
Wir starteten unseren Kroatienurlaub mit 7 Tagen bei Donka & Josip und fühlten uns vom ersten Tag an wohl. Wir kamen Abends spät in unserem Appartment an und Josip begrüßte uns sehr freundlich, mit vielen Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt und einem Karlovačko-Begrüßungsbier (was ihm sofort Pluspunkte bei meinem Freund einbrachte ;). Die Unterkunft zwar etwas weiter von der nächstgrößeren Stadt entfernt, aber in 20 Min. erlaufbar und gleich drei Straßen weiter gibt es einen kleinen Markt, in dem man alles Wichtige kaufen kann. Wir hatten zu zweit fast zuviel Platz und waren mit allem versorgt (Küche+Geschirr+Kaffeepads, Bettwäsche, Handtücher, deutsche TV-Sender!! :), Wäscheständer und und und.), hatten eine wunderbaren Terrasse für uns alleine, frühstückten unter einem Feigenbaum mit Blick aufs Meer und genossen die Zeit zum Ausspannen und Genießen. Alles war sehr sauber und ordentlich. Donka und Josip waren jederzeit für uns da, mit Ratschlägen, Insidertipps oder netten Gesprächen und besonders auch als ich an einem Tag die Hitze nicht gut vertrug und von einem Radausflug früher heimkam um mich hizulegen, kümmerten sich die beiden sehr darum, dass ich bald wieder gesund wurde.
Alles in allem können wir diese Gastgeber allen ans Herz legen, die Sonne, Meer und jede Menge kroatische Gastfreundschaft suchen. Wir kommen ganz bestimmt wieder!
Ho soggiornato con mio marito e 2 figlie, una di 16 anni e una di 11 anni dal 29 luglio al 7 agosto 2014. L'appartamento era semplice ma molto pulito e funzionale, e poi svegliarsi al mattino a fare colazione con vista sul mare .......fantastico!!!! Per tutto il soggiorno non abbiamo avuto la necessitò di spostare l'auto perchè la spiaggia sotto casa era adatta alle nostre esigenze. E' stata una vacanza bellissima per l'ubicazione dell'appartamento, vicinissimo al mare (un mare meravigliso!!!!), per il clima dell'isola, per la tranquillità del posto, ma sopratutto per i proprietari che, pur parlando poco italiano, (e noi poco inglese) hanno cercato sempre di soddisfare ogni nostra minima esigenza, riuscendo a creare un clima di amicizia e fiducia reciproca.
Monica e famiglia
Esperienza bellissima Donka e Josip son 2 persone fantastiche e disponibilissime, l'appartamento è in una splendida posizione lontano dalla strada e a pochi passi dal mare.... tutto perfetto.....spero di tornarci presto....
