Apartment: Meticulously clean & finished to a high standard. One double bedroom and another with two stacked bunk beds. A balcony with views through the trees down to the turquoise sea. Reached via an outside staircase.
Hosts: The Raji? family live downstairs and are utterly charming. They are perfect hosts - not at all obtrusive, yet there if you want them and the booking process via email was easy and helpful. So friendly, nothing is too much trouble. They made us feel like part of the family.
The area: Gorgeous Osibova Bay is a couple of miles from beautiful Milna. We regularly walked to Milna along the country lane, which passes through delightful Dalmatian countryside. Osibova has a sprinkling of houses (and some being built by locals, but this didn't spoil the calm, restful ambience). Lanes in the village are steep and gravelly so may not suit those with mobility issues. No local bars, shop or eateries in Osibova but a "garden restaurant" konoba Kapetanovo Lozje 300m up the lane to Milna is a must-do. Excellent lamb, fish, cheese. Milna has great food, too.
Our holiday was based on walking so we used public transport. Cheap and punctual, though not very frequent. Milna is served by daily foot passenger catamaran devices to Split (must see!) and neighbouring Hvar, Kor?ula and even Dubrovnik (Google Krilojet). There are car services via Bra?'s capital Supetar. Bra? roads are good.
The sea: Even in early June the sea was swimmable (for us used to the UK seas). Don't expect sandy beaches but the rocky shore provides access and sunbathing. Amazingly clear water is perfect for snorkelling.
Climate: Day Highs of 30°C, night lows of 16°C in early June. One rain shower.
We loved Croatia, the island of Bra?, the Milna area (a gem for walking), Osibova, the apartment and we truly miss the lovely hosts. We hope you find this review helpful.
