All these plants coupled with the proximity of the sea contributes to the unique relaxing and pleasant aroma.

Jelsa is located in a bay on the northern coast of the island of Hvar, which with its moderate climate, beautiful beaches, unique vegetation, historic and cultural heritage is considered as one of the most beautiful islands in the world. Of all the places on the island, Jelsa has numerous and most beautiful beaches. Besides its natural beauty, Jelsa is abundant with olive groves and vineyards, and some of the best Croatian wines come from Jelsa's vineyards and cellars.
The island of Hvar has been known since antiquity for its important strategic and nautical location, its various historical periods, cultural and natural monuments, and literature. It is characterized by mild climate, warm winters and pleasant summers, mediterranean nature is not disturbed, tourists can enjoy fresh fish and distinguished wines. It is considered one of the ten most beautiful islands in the world. In the central part of the island lies Jelsa. The first lady of the whole island, richly decorated with indented coastline and numerous islands, romantic coves and defiant capes, its beauty is still, above all, a result of a healthy way of life of its residents.
Between Vrboska, Jelsa and Stari Grad lies the most fertile field in the Adriatic islands. The large plain rich with mediterranean culture - lush vineyards and very well-known wines, orchards, olive trees and vegetables. A special artistic atmosphere, as is rarely to be found, is achieved with the surrounding mountains and hills, where it is grown and bred mediterranean herbs - relaxing lavender, healing sage, delicious almonds, authentic carob, distinctive slender pine and dignified cypress. The trees and plants are anthem of health, planted with effort of human hands, and blessed with the sun - the trademark of the whole island. Hvar in fact has the most sunny hours in Croatia, an average of 2726 sunshine hours per year! It is right to say that the one who travels to Jelsa actually goes to get the sun.
What characterizes the climate of this region are the summer winds. Morning levant and afternoon mistral create an almost full day of air flow that brings refreshing thoughts. The effects of this synaesthesia of smell, taste, sound, color and touch are generally known - a natural herbal cocktail every needs.

We have booked one night for our family in Robert's apartment, but when we arrived we decided to stay longer. Robert was very quick in responding our inquiry and all questions, so we could easily ask anything and get the information in few minutes. When we made the booking, he helped us with directions to the apartments, sent us map and all useful informations about the ferries, road etc.
We kept him informed about our arrival time, so he even waited for us on the street, showed us where to park, and led us to apartment.
We were completely satisfied with the apartment, it has everything you might need on vacation. Robert's parents live in the same house, so when we had some extra wishes, they did everything to get us what we desired, in few minutes, like informations about the island, best restaurants, best wines etc. Even the hosts live in the same house, we had full privacy, and saw them only when we wanted. With their help, I believe we found and tasted the best wine and food (and not highest prices!) in town, we had great time exploring walking tours, and met some interesting people in caffe bars. As we were told, there is a great tradition in Easter time on island Hvar, so we are thinking of coming back at Roberts house then to see that. For sure we will bring more family. The prices are reasonable, the hosts are friendly and helpful. Roberts mother brought us some homemade cookies and coffee, which was a lovely experience and we felt like relatives, not strangers. We surely recommend Robert and his house for every traveler in the world. Five star hosts! Thank you, Robert!
W rzeczywistości jest trochę inaczej niż na zdjęciach ale ogólnie przyjemnie i spokojnie. Dom jest oddzielony drogą od morza jednak okolica obfituje w spokojne zakątki nad wodą. Mili i raczej niewidoczni gospodarze. Bardzo nam pomogli w sprawach, które nas interesowały i które chcieliśmy na miejscu zobaczyć. DZIĘKI! Cykady, szum morza w dali muzyka. Ogólnie fajna lokalizacja na bliższe i dalsze wypady.
Sebastian and his group were nice guest with quiet child. They have stayed 2 nights more, then they have reserved on airbnb, plus we gave them 30% discount. It is almost half price for them since they haven't payed airbnb service fee for those 2 days. For me, it is not important since airbnb charges only 3% to hosts but they charge much more % to guest. I have made them favor by accepting payment in cash instead payment trough airbnb, but it seems that they think that they have made favor to me :) . 3% is really small fee and I'm always prefer that guest make payments trough airbnb. Because that way I much more safe that guests will arrive and pay whole amount for reservation which he had made.
As I wrote everything was fine, ....almost.
That day which they have stayed longer, day before they departure, they have taken all blankets and sheets from our apartment even if it is not allowed and in the night they have returned from trip in nature, all those blankets and sheets were dirty especially blankets which were destroyed with pine resin. They just have told that they didn't know that it is forbidden to take that from the house and that we should told them so!!! This was really surprise since I didn't know that those thing's should be told even if we have told them that towels, which we provide to our guests, are only for bathroom not for beach. After that we didn't aspect that we should also tell them that is not allowed to take wardrobe, fridge, bed, television, gate, windows, fridge, blankets and sheets outside of apartment .. with them in nature. Well we also didn't told them that it is not allowed to jump from balcony but they didn't do so. My mother have checked those blankets and sheets but she have decided to forgive and not to charge anything even if new blankets were destroyed, just because she was hoping that that way guest will leave nice review. We have also help them to make some contacts for their business. Also one pillow for sofa which is in living room is missing. Must be that they have forget it somewhere... Luckily, we didn't have any guests which are arriving after their departure and we had time to buy what is damaged by them. Otherwise we will get bed review if somebody should arrived after their departure, since, with those blankets, we will not give our guests what they have payed for. Therefore, I want to explain to this guest that if he have payed for reservation of apartment for specific days, he haven't bought everything inside of apartment and he should be responsible for every damage he makes. And, also, lowest price which he could find on airbnb for such big and well equipped apartment doesn't mean that everything is worthless inside of it and that he is allowed to treat it that way. Just ask you self would you treat your own new blankets and bedding that way.
If this group of guests have found those damaged and dirty blankets in apartment I'm 100% sure that they will mention that in review. But, are they willing to admit, by themselves, that they have made damage?
Anyway, they have made more damage then they have payed for their stay. But it is always pleasure for me to donate accommodation to such people. :)
I do not recommend them at all.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour à Jelsa chez Robert. La maison, à 20 minutes du centre à pied, est à seulement quelques minutes de la mer, idéalement située près de petites criques. De plus, nous avons pu profiter pleinement de la terrasse très bien aménagée, bien que la façade extérieure de la maison ne soit pas encore achevée.
L'appartement de Robert est situé au dessus de l'appartement loué, il était donc à notre disposition pour n'importe quelle information.
The reasons to stay in the spacious apartment are three fold- 1) the amazing hosts, 2) the gorgeous gardens, and 3) the proximity to the quaint town of Jelsa and the sea.
The hosts, Nana and Robert, and really their whole family (daughter, father in law, mother in law), were the most kind, gracious, generous people. They shared not just housing with us, but conversation and coffee in the garden, swapping stories and learning about each other. Our experience in Hvar was defined by the genuine interest and kindness of this family.
For thiry years Stepjen has been building stone walls, terraces, stairs, and paths around the apartments. And his wife has been filling in the spaces with gardens and potted plants. The effect is nothing short of spectacular. Additionally, they brought out the house pets- Corky the 15 year old tortoise, and Bitzy, the extremely sweet ancient dog. We love animals so getting to meet and interact with their animals in the environment of the gardens was incredible fun.
Lastly, the town of Jelsa is nothing short of quaint. It's about a mile away so if you don't have a car (we don't!) then plan to do some walking. But the beach and the water is right there- just down the hill. You can get in almost anywhere and there is a lovely beach just around the corner. It's a beautiful place.
I would highly recommend staying with Nana and Robert. We will forever remember their kindness towards me and my daughters!
We had a very nice time in Jelsa at Roger's. Though 2 km from town, Roger's appartment is located right above beautiful rocky beaches, in a very quiet neighbourhood. The appartment is definitely more suitable for 4, but was very clean and spacious. Thanks again!
We have been visiting Hvar several times and cant help returning.Beatiful place.
Apartment is on second level where also owners relatives are living.Stairs are going up beside the building.There is also rooms in ground level and first floor.Apartment number 5 is basic with two bed rooms,shared kitchen/livinroom and two shower/toilets.Rooms are with double beds and in livinroom there is sofa/bed.
Room are ok,but ordinary.Few things were bothering us.Toilets and dishwasher were leaking.Shower cabin was not working proberly and suddenly hot water were dropping to face.There is other shower room which is more safe for children.There is door between apartments and you can hear neighbours.Outside on terrace area there is only one light on wall and so we could not eat late night.Later owners father brought us extension cord and light bulp,so we could make barbecue.
As I have wrote in review for you, you were lookin for whole house and I have told you that this is an apartment in house and therefoe you can aspect to hear other people. What that means that apartment has shared kitchen and living room!? Well you and your family have rented one apartment for all of you with 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and living room. If you want to rent seperated apartmernts for 2 families there was an option for that. I can't see what is point that complain. Besides you have wrote that there will be 3 or 4 adults and when you have arrived there were 5 adults, but you haven't mentioned that. We haven't charge you anything for extra person.
Outdoor area has light but I really don't know how did you miss it. Besides there is a dining room. Really it is not apropriate to have barbecue party when other people are trying to sleep. This is a quiet arrea of town and if you need a party then you should have considered to stay in center but that way you will hear more neighbours and beaches will be to far from you.... and that is endless circle
Please don't complain because you have get what you have rented. The place is as it is described. If you have wanted to rent a house for you and your family then you should not rent an apartment and after that should not write that kitchen and living room is shared. Kitchen and living room was in your apartmernt which you have rented and nobody else uses that kitchen and living room. Sofa bed in living room was for 5th person which was not nmentioned by you in your reservation request.
Alles bestens. Buchung schnell und unkompliziert. Appartement war sauber und hat genug Platz für uns 6 Personen geboten. Terrasse perfekt für gemütliches Frühstücken. Meer beinahe vor der Haustür. Auto ist aber sicher kein Nachteil, da es nach Jelsa ca. 20 Minuten Fussmarsch sind. Alles in allem ein tolles Selbsterhalter-Appartement mit klasse Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ohne viel SchnickSchnack.
