Nosotros estuvimos solamente dos noches,y básicamente lo usamos para dormir y visitar la isla, el lugar es muy tranquilo y está al lado del mar, a 2km andando de Jelsa y a 3km de Vrboska. Stari Grad está cerca y Hvar a unos 35 minutos. El apartamento es básico pero está limpio y nos resultó silencioso y cómodo para dormir.
La casa resulta un poco difícil de encontrar la primera vez si no tienes GPS, ya que hay muchas parecidas y no está en la primera linea de mar,nosotros lo intentamos pero no lo conseguimos y tuvimos que quedar con Robert para que nos ayudara.Yo recomendaría quedar con Robert en el Hotel Fontana directamente.
Robert es muy amable y se preocupó mucho para que pudiéramos encontrarla, incluso nos envió fotos del camino. La relación calidad-precio es muy buena.
Great self-catering option on a budget. Accommodation is cosy and welcoming. Robert and his parents were super friendly and helpful! The house is located in a really beautiful area with lots of great swimming spots nearby. Bring snorkeling gear if you have it ;) and don't miss out on visiting nearby town Stari Grad. Be careful about arranging travel on Sundays as there are limited ferry options that day. I made this mistake and had to leave one day early and spend a night in Split in order to make my early flight home. I had a wonderful stay here - recommended!
Thank you dad Robert for meeting us! His parents were very nice and caring people. Apartments are clean and comfortable. Located in a quiet and comfortable place, clean air and sea helps to relax.
We stayed two nights. The room was big and clean, in a very good position, 2km away from jelsa and right in front of the sea. It took 2 minutes by foot to arrive to the beach. The bathroom was private, and the kitchen shared but ok, with every tools. Our hosts were very kind.
Although the apartment is very simple, as the pictures show, it is good value for money and was perfect for a few days' relaxation. We swam at the beach below the house every morning and night and enjoyed pancakes made by Robert's mother. It was a lovely spot to relax, away from the tourist crowds but an easy walk to Jelsa along the coastal path.
We had a great stay at Robert´s place. His dad picked us up from the bus station and was cheerful and nice. Robertś dad speaks German and Croatian but basic communication wasn´t a problem.
The room was a good value with a little refrigerator and a nice terrace. In the entryway there was a stove and sink----and happily for me a coffee machine. I also liked that there was a good spot to hang out hand washing. The bed was comfortable and it was QUIET at night. But best of all, a beautiful cove for swimming was right down a short path. The walk to town was lovely and invigorating. We rented bikes and rode from town to town one day.
Overall, it was a delightful stay and I would definately visit again.
The place was clean and comfotable. I would definitely recommend it to anyone on a budget. We didn't get to meet Robert as his family seemed to be running the show, but that was fine. His father was very friendly and spoke some Deutsch which was a help. He came into town when we got there and took us back to the appartment. Very close to the water and about a 15 minute walk into Jelsa harbour.
Thanks Robert :)
