Enjoy Life.Sports,Nature Awerness
The house is clean and comfortable if you want to visit Rijeka and Opatija. Tonci is very kind and he can help you if you need information.
Apartment is really nice and spacious, and has its own very interesting style.
We liked it a lot.
Aircon is working.
Terrace is only partly shown on photos - you sit behind the grapes.
Also, balcony is not shown - there's a place for 2 with a magnificent panorama of the sea.
Other than that, photos are accurate.
Parking space just near the windows.
Place, Transport accessibility, beaches
It is a calm district between Rijeka center and Opatija, easily accessed from both cities.
There are 2 bus stops nearby - bus 1A in ~20 metres.
And ~300 metres to bus 1 (and 32 to Opatija) - stop Kantrida. Part of it are stairs, be prepared.
Kantrida is a football stadium just near the beach (another ~500 metres from stop Kantrida). Magnificent view, nice photos.
We liked the beach a lot.
Close to Kantrida stadium are newly built (sport) swimming pools, and (another) beach near it is considered one of the best in the whole country. Looks really nice, but we preferred one that was closer.
Shops and cafes
Local market and food shop in ~8 min by foot
Few cafes even closer.
Hosts and neighbors
Tonci and Silvana are just perfect hosts, who do every thing possible to make their guests feel perfect.
Silvana took us by her car for a short excursion to Opatija's port.
And, even more, when we rented a car and decided that we want to go further south, Tonci agreed to change the dates of our stay. (please do not repeat it - it is just an illustration how far the hosts are prepared to go in order to keep their guests happy. Highest grade for that!).
And the neighborhood - as this is very quiet district with small houses, in few days everyone knew who we are, and showed us the way home when we got little confused :)
Also, if you do not mind to get closer to neighbors - you'll find out that Croatians are really prepared to get to know you better, and to advise what places to visit, etc.
Nice lady neighbor Laura even offered us binoculars when we were heading for Trsat hill, inviting us for coffee, etc., etc.
All in all, we would definitely recommend staying at Tonci's place, and wold gladly do that again when next time in Rijeka.
