Useful directions which were tipped off by being greeted by Robert's dad at the final stage, which was nice as it is a good 15 minute walk from town.
Reasonably size flat, with an all equipped kitchen. Comfortable bed, with good air conditioning fan.
Robert and family were wonderful hosts. Jelsa is a wonderful little town and visiting in October was perfect since there were no crowds. The room was accurately described; however, it was a bit tight quarters with the other guests which wasn't optimal and a bit noisy. Would definitely recommend Robert as your host. He researched ferry and bus schedules so we could see Bol on our way back to Split. Hvar is a must visit destination. Beautiful!
Robert and his family are very friendly and helpful. The apartment is simple and rather small, but clean and comfortable.
The house and the apartments don't looke quite like as the pictures. There are a couple (3?) of appartments on the ground floor and on the first floor, very close one to each other. Our was next to the garage.
The neighborhood is nice, but best to go there in the middle of the summer.
Thanks for nice review.
I'm not sure that I have understand what do you mean by "house and apartments don't look like as the PICTURES" and I would like that you explain me that because we would like to remove photos which are not showing what is in apartment. I have double checked photos and I can not see which photo is misleading. Beside that, you have rented and have payed for just one apartment and you can not say how do others look like.
When you rent apartment in house or in hotel you can aspect that those CLOSE TO EACH OTHER. Maybe you should rent whole house.
Your sentence "best to go there in the middle of the summer" .... How you can be sure? :) You were here at the end of September. How you can know how it is in middle of summer?? Maybe you know that the same way as you know how other apartments in our house looks like. :))) For your information, there was a rain almost each day this summer. I just can say that now, in October, is best weather this season with lot of sun and sea is worm enough for swimming. I guess that rain was main reason why you have left such review but you should not blame me for weather. It is not my fault that sun have started to shine at the moment when you have left apartment.
YOUR APARTMENT is next to small garden with palm tree. House is not on the main street, in matter of fact it is last house in the street, and therefore, there is no traffic at all in the street and place is really quiet and relaxing. Also, most of the houses have garage and the one in our house is not in use at all. So, I don't see any point in your sentence "our was next to GARAGE". Beside that, our house is near sea which is clean and suitable for swimming so you don't have to walk or drive to find clean beach which is not crowded with people.
You have payed for apartment with bedroom, bathroom, kitchen and table with chairs next to the garden with palm tree for 6 nights just 140€ which is really great price for all that and I'm 100% sure that you couldn't find lower price for what you had in our apartment. Most likely, if you have stayed in some other place, you will pay much more and you will get less then you had at our apartment. Another thing is that all our apartments and rooms have different prices according to their size, equipment, view...etc. but all of our apartment have lowest prices in wider area. And prices can be even lower if you stay for longer period of time.
For more information about HOUSE there are 3 small apartments on ground floor. One of them has big terrace and is next to pine forest. (I can assume that in your review forest will be on place of garage if you were in this apartment. But can you believe that some people enjoy to be next to pine trees and near sea in quiet area.) One apartment is in middle. Your apartment is next to the one in the middle. You have same size space in front of apartment like the others and garage is next to house not next to your place in front of apartment where is your table and chairs. Once again, you haven't rented a whole house. Each apartment has it's own access to the apartment.
On second floor there are 2 rooms. Each room has it's own balcony with sea view with table and chairs. Each room also has it's own bathroom and 82cm LED TV. There is also one kitchen which guest of those 2 rooms can use (and that is additional equipment for a rooms - rooms are not apartments) and from March 2015 each room will have it's own kitchen. Price for those rooms are little bit higher then for apartments on ground floor since they have nice view on the sea.
And also on that floor is biggest apartment which is about 80m2 big. It has 2 rooms. One of the rooms has 2 beds. Another has 2 beds also and additional bed + balcony with sea view with table with chairs. There are 2 bathrooms, big kitchen with dining room and living room with big LCD TV, sofa, which can be extended in additional bed 160x200cm. And there is terrace in front of apartment with table and chairs and sunbeds. This one has 3,5 times higher price then apartment which you have rented.
So, at the end, I can not see what was wrong with apartment and why you have wrote such a poor review. I still can not see what in description and photos is misleading.
Мы провели 10 прекрасных дней в этой квартире. Добрались без проблем, хотя прилетели в Сплит уже вечером, незадолго до последнего парома. В Старом Граде с парома нас встретил Степан, отец Роберта.
Роберт, Нана и Степан очень доброжелательны, всегда готовы помочь. Условия проживания нас полностью устроили, все удобно, чисто, спокойно. На кухне есть все необходимое, квартира для двоих достаточно просторная.
Прямо под домом каменистый пляж, там мы купались в первый день и потом несколько раз. В обе стороны по побережью несколько галечных пляжей с песчаным дном, в тихих прекрасных бухтах. На противоположном берегу залива целая череда превосходных галечно-каменистых пляжей.
До Елсы можно дойти минут за 15, там много магазинов, ресторанчиков, винных погребков. С автобусной остановки по расписанию ходят автобусы в Хвар, Стари Град и другие города.
В противоположную сторону от Елсы по берегу в получасе ходьбы замечательный маленький городок Врбоска. Первый раз мы попали туда на закате, было необыкновенно красиво - залив, далеко врезающийся в город, мосты через него, отраженные в воде дома…
Если будет возможность, мы с радостью опять приедем к Роберту и Нане.
Robert's wife received us, she was very welcoming and sympatic. Very nice and quiet place to spend a few days.
In the kitchen, you can find what you need for cooking (oil, salt, peper, sugar, origan ...). If you need, Robert could drive you somewhere. He's very friendly.
Very good appartment for low price !
We had a great time at Robert and Nana's place. Their flat is perfect for a stay over in jelsa.
It's a lovely town and the apartment is only a 15min walk from the centre. They also have a great location, very close to a beautiful and secluded beach where we watched an amazing sunset. Nana was so friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at their apartment.
