A LOVELY STAY!

  • 5 of 5
The Norwegian couple staying in apartement 2 in July 2011 wants to thank Caroline Penga and her family for a lovely stay!
Caroline gave the best service, from booking to departure. She picked us up at the airport, and even stopped at a supermarked so we could shop some groceries. And we where told to come and ask her about anything anytime. She was the most wonderful hostess.

The apartement is small, but clean and nice, and you have everything you need, including a lot of towels. You allso have access to washing macine. The outdoor area for this aparment is small, and have evening sun, so its a bit too hot to sit there before the sun goes down, But you have access to the big terrace above if you want.
There is 2 steep roads to climb going home fro Okrug/ main beach, but it is worth the sweat because of the quiet area.
We agree to all the other reviews, so we will not repeat it all.
So, what to do in Okrug? Main beach can be ok a day or two, but a bit too crowded to our taste. We liked Camping Rozac ( google it), a 40min walk from the apartment. You can see it if stand on the big terrace. You walk at the end of main beach and 7-8 min further on. Bring water. There is an ok bar there ( you get coffee), and an ok restaurant. We allso visited Camping Lamadusa, a good walk to get there, but you can allso take a taxi.
Best reatuarant is Leonardo, but go to Trogir allso ( better restaurants). Recommend late afternoon, the narrow streets there are packed after 20.00h. Boat from Okrug every half our. Allso visit Split. Boat from Trogir takes 1h ( can allso go by bus). Split is a nice town for shopping. And visit the Palace, and eat at place recommended in Lonely Planet guide for Kroatia. Here we recommend you to go from Okrug in the morning,allso because of the amount of people and because going to Split is a one-day trip if you go shopping!
You have to really see the Adriatic sea, so hire a boat/ go yacht excursion! We went for a 10 hour trip, including brekfast and lunsch,fruit and all drinks included (wine, coffee, water) and had the most fantastic day, visiting the small islands around Ciovo, swimming in the most blue lagoons you can think of, for about 520Nkr pr person (we where 9 persons)
For a Norwegian prices are comfortable, paying under 300NKR for dinner for 3 persons including beer/ coke. Big pizza 50NKR, big beer 25NKR. Pay, mostly cash ( in kuna).
But: you MUST join Caroline`s fishbarbeque!
Our first time in Kroatia, not the last!

WONDERFUL, RELAXING BREAK

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I booked a week stay at the property and from landing at Split into warm, wonderful weather to leaving in the exact same conditions we were never disappointed once. The apartment was clean and Caroline and her husband were incredibly friendly and helpful, the property is a 15min walk to the main beach where most people settle for the day as there is lots of little cafes and bars where drinks and lunch can be had while enjoying the sun and the amazing water which was so warm and relaxing. If you want to head to Trogir the ferry from the main beach goes every half hour and is a cheap way to get into the old town for touristy things or just for a meal out in the evening. We went to Krka which was amazing and booked with one of the travel guides on the main beach for a decent price, I would thoroughly recommend going canyoning which comprises of donning a wetsuit, helmet and lifejacket and floating down an amazing canyon and through gentle rapids. Caroline cooked a feast of a meal for everyone staying in the apartments on the friday and everyone had a great time talking and enjoying some wine in the warm evening. While we were there temperatures were on average 32deg celcius and we had a very enjoyable time and would recommend it to everyone.

ALL WE WANTED FOR A GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
From our welcome at the airport to our goodbyes outside the departure lounge, Caroline and her husband couldn't have been more helpful. The apartment was clean and well kept - everything worked and we had all the necessary cooking utensils - though we did bring a sharp kitchen knife and that came in handy. There is a small supermarket only 5 or 6 minutes walk away and there are bigger ones within 15 minutes or so from the apartment on foot. The sea was beautiful and clear and we swam from the shingly beaches or the rocky outcrops - the nearest being only 5 minutes down the hill, though we walked towards the main town a bit and used the shingly beach. It was very safe and friendly and there seems to be just about no crime - an ipod lay undisturbed on a towel near us for a whole afternoon! The beach mats in the apartment are very helpful, but you should buy some of the gel swimming shoes which almost everyone wears - they really help when getting in and out of the water. Do be aware that there is a steep climb to the apartment from the beach, so if you're not good on your feet then you'll want a car. If you don't mind the walk then you can manage without - we did. There is a regular boat service to Trogir and buses and boats go to Split throughout the day. Portal Travel in Trogir organise lots of trips and we had a great day at Krka National Park with and excellent guide. We also booked an island trip from one of the operators down at Okrug beach and that was worth doing too. On our last evening, Caroline invited all of us who had booked for a fortnight to dinner at her apartment where she served up a wonderful meal, with lots of homemade (and very strong) wine (and with special dishes for the fussy vegetarians - us!). On our last day we left all our bags at the apartment while we went to Trogir and Caroline's husband picked us up in time to get us to the airport. If you don't have a car it's well worth paying to be collected and dropped off. It was a lovely fortnight, very relaxing and just what we wanted, and Apartment 2 provided an ideal base for all we wanted to do.

OUR HONEYMOON

  • 5 of 5
Couldn't have asked for more lovely people than the owners of this property, warm welcoming and incredibly helpful. The location of this appartment is superb, within walking range of beach bars, uninhabited forests, remote coves and a short boat trip from the unesco site of Trogir. Motorised transport required for those not to fit but a good challenge to those who are. Appartment two is a lovely little studio appartment ideal for a couple. Its clean tidy and surprisingly spacious. The highlight of a stay at this appartment, the fish dinners held reguarly by the host, fresh fish straight out of the sea on to the BBQ and onto the plate, Fantastic! One other thing, ask about their home made wines, you wont be disapointed.

LOVELY WEEK IN DALMATIA

  • 5 of 5
we thoroughly enjoyed our week staying in this appartment. we cooked several meals in the appartment, and the facilities were more than adequate with everything needed for food preparation and a large fridge. the bathroom was clean and well equipped with toiletries, towels and a hairdryer. we enjoyed eating out on the balcony in the evenings and looking across the bay to trogir lit up by night. it was quite a long walk into the town, but the boats were regular and cheap, and trogir itself was a beautiful town full of character with lots of great restaurants. split was also great, both for those interested in history and sightseeing, and also for shopping. the markets were bustling and full of good, reasonably priced produce. krka national park was a brilliant day out with good facilities and incredible scenery.
the beaches were very close to the appartment, and there were both wide gravelly beaches with bars and ice cream bars along them, ideal for families, and also walking left from the appartment more rocky beaches backed by woodland which were more secluded and with great opportunities for snorkelling.
the hosts were extremely welcoming and friendly and made our stay very pleasant. they held a barbecue with a wonderful spread of local seafood and their fantastic home made wine.
we only regretted that we only had a week to spend at this great destination.

There are isolated beaches and coves within walking distance and Okrug beach, with it's beach side cafes and bars, is a few minutes walk away. The local harbour area has several good restaurants and is a busy, lively place during the season. The World Heritage Site of Trogir is about half an hours walk away. Here you will find a colourful daily market and a Sunday fish market and stunning architecture spanning nearly three thousand years. Visit the fascinating Roman city of Split, enjoy the bustling capital of Dalmatia and the Emperor Diocletian's Palace. The lakes and waterfalls of Krka National Park are a pleasant, relaxing and cool experience. Consider an organized trip which includes a visit to Sibenik and a boat trip to the main falls. The small islands of Drvenik Mali (small) or Veliki (big) is an hour by ferry from Trogir. Typical Mediterranean country walks with beautiful bays, sandy beaches and a handful of bars and restaurants.
