A great location with stunning views over the bay

Vis must be one of the most spectacular islands in Croatia and its capital is located in a gorgeous, horseshoe shaped bay surrounded by high hills. Though it still retains its unspoilt charm and beauty, it is full of life and activity. Kut, where the house is located, is just along the harbour front beyond the main town and it is a gem, full of narrow winding streets, line with charming old houses, but still with its fair share of characterful restaurants and cafes to while away the evening after a hard day on the beach. Indeed, one of the nicest ones is just next door, with excellent food and delightful staff.
The house is right on the waterfront, but in a traffic free zone so very quiet. Though very old, it has been tastefully restored and feels bright and modern inside, with lovely big bedrooms, well appointed bathrooms and all mod cons in the (two!) kitchens. The first floor bedroom where we stayed gave on to a pretty little stone balcony full of flower pots and trailing plants and with a wonderful view of the bay. A great place to chill out with a book or to hang out wet beach gear!
But its crowning glory is the top (fourth) floor living area, with its little kitchen and a balcony with an absolutely stunning view over the bay and the surrounding rooftops. A fantastic place to watch the boats coming and going while you enjoy a leisurely breakfast or a sundowner, especially as its westerly aspect gives you the chance to see some spectacular sunsets. Its actually quite hard to tear yourself away to go out and enjoy the islands other delights.
I would highly recommend this as an excellent place to stay, with just one proviso - that you are fit enough to manage the four flights of stairs!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for this lovely review which is also hugely informative for other people. It is a tall house, hence the wonderful views, but there are only three flights of stairs really (if you discount the steps at the front door) and you rarely have to take them all in one go! But it's true that if someone is disabled or fragile then the steps could be a problem and we wouldn't suggest our house. I do hope you will take another trip to Vis some day as we would love to welcome you back.
