Lidija is super easy to work with and a great communicator. The location can't be beat for it's convenience and awesome deck. It's hard to get away from stairs in Hvar but there was only 1 set of stairs from the ferry to the apartment's main entrance so it wasn't bad at all. It was very warm when we were there and the home has multiple AC units that worked great! We also appreciated that the apartment had it's own clothes washer and dryer since we packed light. The best part of our Hvar trip was one day spent on a private boat that took us to secluded coves for swimming, wine tasting, and eat at a restaurant accessible only by boat. We rented the boat from Francesco (the home's caretaker). Lidija, thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and for connecting us with Frane!
Apartment Star is a very stylish decorated apartment with a wonderful view of the sea. It is very accommodating with a wonderful kitchen with food amenities, washer and dryer, three balconies, and a garage that held two cars. There are steps to get to the apartment but it elevates you to see the view! It is about a 8 minute drive to the old town. It is close to the hospitals which unfortunately we had a family member that needed to go to. There are two bathrooms.
This is a great location overlooking the Fast Ferry landing about 30 steps up. It can be a busy entertainment district at night. With the AC on and the windows closed sleeping was no problem for me. The patio is large with a 180 degree panorama of the port and the promenade on both sides of the harbor. Patio access is through one or both of the lower bedrooms which is great for families but requires patience with couples who might want privacy rather than through traffic. The large, modern umbrellas were critical to the patio life after the morning shade disappeared (around 11 am in mid-July). “Franny” greeted us promptly upon arrival and always responded within minutes to our calls or texts. He arranged swimming trips to adjacent beaches that were wonderful and fairly priced as “water taxis” rather than tours. Thanks Franny. AirBnB’s typically provide just one entry key but this place has a lock box system that restored flexibility and convenience for the 4 independent couples in our group. Good idea! Plumbing was up to date and 4 couples never had a hot water issue. Wifi was good, not super fast but adequate. Cell service was solid. Great coffee and breakfast places 50 paces left out the entry door. Swimming beach 200 meters right turn out of the entry door. Big Konsum grocery across from the largest church on the plaza. About a 10 minute walk. Fresh veggies & bread also available at the farmers market in that same block. We drank the local tap water in Croatia with no issues. Delicious in fact. 10% tipping was plenty. Cash only in many places in the islands but ATM’s are everywhere. We loved the pizza at Kogo on the square. Best in Hvar.
Awesome location and wonderful terrace! The hosts were very helpful with travel recommendations. The house was equipped with everything we needed. The great thing is the house is located immediately off the boat harbor with minimal stairs. It is so close to the nightlife that it can be noisy at night but other than that it is an Amazing place that we will always remember and would like to return. Highly recommend!
This apartment in Hvar had an amazing location, with a gorgeous balcony and views of the sea. It was right next to the action of old town with restaurants and bars are just a stones throw away. We couldn’t get enough of the balcony!
The hosts were extremely hospitable and we went on a boat ride with a tour company they recommended. That was an amazing way to spend the day!
There were great amenities - washer, dryer and everything else you can possibly want.
One area of improvement however is - the living areas and kitchen are a little too small for a group of more than 2, there was hardly any space to walk. The bedrooms were too small to keep the suitcases. This was not evident from the pictures on Airbnb.
Hands down the best place to stay in Hvar. Close to everything and wonderful setup in the house to accommodate just about everything you could possibly need during your trip. Helped organize our boat outing and completely wowed our group. Would highly recommend this place for anyone looking to have the best time in Hvar possible.
Short but great stay in Hvar. The unit location was perfect for our group, not that we were in it much, for catching the boat for island hoping day trips to catching the ferry. Our host Frane was great and setup a boat excursion that was beyond amazing. Alan, our boat captain, couldn’t had done anything different to make this one of the most memorable days on our vacation! The entire group will never forget how amazing that day was & Alan was awesome! What a great guy! Thanks and we’ll be back soon!
