Located in the quaint village of Zemunik Gornji, our family home is perfectly situated for those looking for a peaceful retreat with easy access to Zadar City Centre, Dalmatia's famous beaches, islands and quick routes to the mountain of Velebit and surrounding coast.
Our home is ideal for families or groups: 130m2, an open concept with large windows and a high cathedral ceiling with exposed beams throughout, give the house a bright and airy feel. A large, new and fully equipped Italian-design kitchen opens out to a 13m x 3m front porch for dinning outdoors. The living space is large and open with a comfortable L-shaped sofa that pulls out into a bed to accomodate additional guests.
The master bedroom with queen-size bed has an ensuite bathroom with a spacious shower for two. The two bedrooms each have two single beds, which can be easily combined for couples if desired. The bright main bathroom is fully equipped with a shower and laundry facilities. There is plenty of closet space providing comfort for extended stays.
Parking is available for up to 4 cars if needed. Around the corner are basketball, soccer and bocce courts for community use. Children will never be bored as the village is a perfect place to frolick. The house looks out onto olive groves and vineyards with panoramic views of the countryside. It is great for those wanting the peaceful and removed experience of rural life (surrounded by the sounds of roosters and turkeys that come with it!), while remaining so close to the beautiful beaches and attractions the coast has to offer.
Located 5km from Zadar Airport just off of the International Expressway, it is less than 15km from the ancient city of Zadar offering dining, museums, theatre and architectural highlights, old and new, such as the spectacular Sea Organs and Greeting to the Sun. Zadar has a vibrant cafe culture and nightlife and is a main port for ferry departures to surrounding islands, such as the famous islands of the National Park Kornati.
For beach bums and those who wish to fully enjoy the remarkably clean and warm Adriatic Sea, our home is only 8km from Sukosan beach with Zaton beach and the therapeutic mud beach of Nin nearby.
The Dalmatian Riviera is renowned for its beauty and offers sailing, diving, kiteboarding or whatever water sport the adventurous traveller might desire. The island of Pag and its pristine beach, Zrce, are home to a wakeboard park, nightclubs and world-renowned summer music festivals.
For hiking and climbing enthusiasts, our home is roughly 30km from the mountain of Velebit and Paklenica National Park. It is less than an hour to the waterfalls of Slapovi Krke and touring the famous UNESCO World Heritage site of Plitvice Lakes.

Croatia is truly a treasure and we welcome you to our home!
Dobro Dosli! My name is Nicole. I am Canadian-born while also a Croatian citizen, lucky to have lived a part of my life on the Mediterranean. I am therefore very familiar with the area, having travelled the region myself as a tourist as well as having lived there as a resident. I was employed in the hospitality industry for years and recently completed studies in Earth Science & Environmental Management. I am passionate about design and a traveller myself. I am so happy with how our new home has come together I wish to share it with fellow global citizens, as I feel it really offers an authentic experience of Croatia.
Our property on the Dalmatian coast has been in my family for generations. It is where my father grew up and where my grandmother still resides, although it has changed significantly over the years. This new house was completed in 2008, built by the hands of the community with local materials of high quality. It stands in place of a centuries old home, devastatingly destroyed in the war. A part of the old house still remains as a small apartment separating our house from an adjoined home built by close relatives next door. Aside from my grandmother who lives in the small apartment and tends to the grounds and her chickens, both properties are vacant throughout most of the year. While family may vacation here occasionally, it is a shame that this beautiful home is often empty, therefore, our wish for visitors to come and enjoy a little piece of our paradise ...
