APARTMENT # 1 WITHIN LARGE RENOVATED HOUSE WITH LARGE COURTYARD

Hvar Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment # 1 (can sleep 4) and Apartment # 2 (sleeps 2)

Located in the very centre of Jelsa, this century-old property of Jelsa’s famed captains consists of two newly renovated adjoining houses, both accessed through a large courtyard.

Surrounded by exceptional cultural and historic heritage, the property full of character offers a special vacation.

Apartment # 1 (ideally for 2, max 4) consists of a fully equipped kitchen with bedroom, living and dining area, bathroom (shower) and separate WC. The air conditioned apartment is accessed by an outer staircase through the 70m2 courtyard that is dominated by one of the oldest bougainvilleas on the island.

The spacious bedroom contains a large double bed and has a beautiful antique wardrobe and dresser. In the living area there is a double sofa bed, TV and dining table and chairs.

WiFi is available.

With a view of the narrow streets of Jelsa, as well as the wooded island hilltops, the 5m long apartment terrace above the inner courtyard provides peace and privacy.

Apartment # 2 (for 2) lies on the 1st and 2nd floor of the large renovated stone house. It consists of a bedroom, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower, living area and large (35m2) rooftop terrace.

WiFi is available.

The bedroom is furnished with an antique wardrobe and an extra large double bed (200 x 200). It has two windows with Mediterranean shutters, one overlooking the courtyard bougainvillea and the other, the quiet backstreet and gardens. It has air conditioning /heating.

The newly refurbished fully equipped kitchen with large refrigerator is next to the bedroom and has dining table and chairs.

The bathroom (with shower) is next to the kitchen and just by the staircase leading to the upper floor.

The upper floor has retained its original flooring and has a sitting corner with TV which is on the way to the spacious terrace, which is surely the highlight of this apartment. This nearly 360o view rooftop terrace offers a superb view of the charming nearby streets and the surrounding wooded hilltops and villages.

It has a dining table and chairs, shower and beach chairs.

Start your day with breakfast on the terrace before setting off to one of the island's crystal-clear beaches or secluded coves or simply enjoy a relaxing evening drink while gazing at the star-dotted sky.

The Sea has been an inseparable part of our ancestor's lives – a vocation, devotion and inspiration which can still be felt in every corner of the house. Appreciating it ourselves too, the house has been renovated with great care and attention for every detail.

Please note that both apartments share the same entrance and passage through the courtyard. The courtyard is used by guests in Apartment 1 while the rooftop terrace is used by guests from Apartment 2.

Getting around: While staying on the island, don’t miss Hvar, the town of exceptional monumental heritage, and if you’re looking for more dynamic evenings, it’s best to be there when the night falls.

For those who wish to discover the beauties of Hvar Island, in Jelsa you can rent a car, bicycle or small boat.

Local buses also operate to Hvar Town, Stari Grad and Vrboska daily.

From Jelsa, you can easily visit Brac Island in a day: there are daily excursions by boat (a 60 min ride) to Bol where you can spend the whole day at the well-known Zlatni rat beach.

Owing to its perfect location, the apartment is equally suitable in low season when the town is quieter, and the favourable climate of the island offers you a possibility to discover the nearby villages, either driving, or walking through the rich vegetation along the vineyards that yield the island's well-known wines, olive groves and fields with a multitude of medicinal herbs.

Arriving in Jelsa: The nearest airport is Split with a shuttle service from airport to Split harbour (30 km). The bus stops next to the Jadrolinija ticket office where you can buy tickets either for the catamaran to Jelsa (via Bol) 2hrs or for the passenger/car ferry (2hrs) to Stari Grad and then continue by local bus to Jelsa (20 min).

If you would like taxi collection from Stari Grad this can be arranged.

LOVELY CHARACTER HOUSE IN QUIET HARBOUR VILLAGE

  • 4 of 5
Lovely apartment, beautifully appointed on 2 floors.
The roof top terrace is lovely for a sunset pre-dinner drink, or a lazy afternoon doing nothing with a well placed shower to cool off - IF YOU CAN STAND THE BELLS!! They DID interrupt our slumbers from 6am on Sunday, and the hourly 'bong' was a nuisance when we tried to siesta on the roof!
The bed is huge and very comfy, kitchen and bathroom well equipped, and all spotlessly clean. The owner, Lada met us from the catamaran, and though not on site for most of our visit, was in touch via text ensuring we had all we needed.
On the whole the village is friendly and a good base for exploring - the lovely walk - or cycle - along the pine clad single track road to sleepy Vrboska is well worth the effort with a myriad of lovely peaceful restaurants serving excellent food and wine. The drive to the end of the island however is not, despite the lovely views, as the road is dangerous to the faint hearted with drop offs to either side and few passing places, and no petrol to be had west of Jelsa, a very friendly, most helpful boat owner in Sucuraj helped us out with 5 litres to get us back! Humac is well worth a visit, and Hvar town too for a dip into the Hedonistic lifestyle!!
We felt a little frustrated as we struggled to find a good place to swim and then crash to dry off, all rocks and concrete, swim shoes are a must, so no comfy shady spots to sleep off a lazy, boozy lunch - is that not what holidays are about!!?
All transport links to and from Split were very straightforward and convenient - we will be returning here for a short break in the future, a most interesting, vibrant town!
Ice cream is a must - every day!!!!

A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We are a couple in our early 60s and stayed at Captain Niko's House for two and a half weeks from mid September to early October. We ended up at Jelsa because we were booking late and Hvar town had nothing much available. As it turned out we were delighted with our choice and would definitely consider going back another year.

The house was exactly as described; it is right in the centre of town, three minutes from the catamaran, two minutes from the bars and one (crucial ) minute from any noise or disturbance that you can expect in a tourist resort in high season.I'll mention the Church bells because I notice that others have. The church clock chimes on the hour and the bells call people to mass. They absolutely did not disturb us!

Lada was friendly and helpful with excellent English. She is based in Split and has local friends who can help with any problem. We had one day's difficulty with the wi-fi and it was fixed as soon as we mentioned it.

We didn't take a car and used buses to visit Stari Grad and Hvar Town but we loved Jelsa best. Jelsa is a functioning town, not only a tourist resort: it has a school, the houses have vegetable gardens, there are weddings in the church and working fisherman use the port.There are bars and restaurants, five supermarkets and other stalls, boats and bikes to hire, fantastic swimming in quiet bays, wonderful walks in the hills along the old roads, and (during the grape harvest) a heady smell of new wine.

We don't actually want to encourage lots of other people to go there. We'd like to keep it for ourselves.

WE LOVE CAPTAIN NIKO'S HOUSE

We love Captain Niko's House
  • 5 of 5
This is a wonderful, quiet, unique place to stay in the beautiful town of Jelsa. Lada, the owner welcomed us with a host of traditional Hvar delicacies and made us feel at home right away. The air conditioned apartment is beautiful and combines the modern with the traditional in this family owned ancient mariners home. The downstairs courtyard is cool and peaceful in the heat of the day and the rooftop terrace is a special place to enjoy early evening drinks while watching the sun go down with the swallows performing their evening aerobatic rituals.
Jelsa harbour is a delight with its many bars, restaurants and cafes but do not come here if you like all-inclusive, discos and partying. This is a much more sophisticated sort of place that would suit romantic couples and those whose children have left home. You can hire a motor boat for 50 euros a day, motor up to the charming Verboska for coffee, take a picnic and then lose yourself on a deserted beach or cove. The water is warm and clear and the snorkeling superb. Eating out is a treat too. Visit the Me & Mrs Jones restaurant on the far side of the harbour and the Dubokovic restaurant in Plitve, a 5 minute drive away up in the hills behind Jelsa. The welcome, food and sunset views here are out of this world. Return to Jelsa for a coffee and ice cream in the cafe on the corner of the square and just watch the beautiful people go by until bed time. Captain Niko's House and Jelsa are special places for special people.

WONDERFUL APARTMENT IN A STUNNING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I, a couple in our twenties, had the most perfect holiday at Captain Niko's and would highly recommend it. The apartment is situated at the heart of Jelsa in a beautiful courtyard, only a short walk from the nearest beach. It is spotlessly clean, comes with everything you need for your stay, and Lada couldn't do enough to help us.

Jelsa is a small and very pretty town, with several supermarkets, markets, and lots of bars and restaurants. We hired a car to visit some of the other towns on the island - and found Jelsa to be the nicest! We will be recommending Captain Niko's to all of our friends and family.

EXCELLENT APARTMENT CLOSE TO CENTRE OF JELSA

  • 5 of 5
This is one of the best places we have stayed. The apartment has everything you need and was clean and well maintained. It is located very close to the bustling centre of Jelsa but in a quieter part of the old town. It is opposite the church so you do hear the church bells occasionally but that didn't disturb us. The owner was very welcoming and friendly and happy to chat if we wanted to. There are 2 small supermarkets, fruit and vegetable market and a baker within 5 minutes walk of the house and several good restaurants and bars in the town - so everything you are likely to need is close by. We used the local beach quite a bit which is less than 10 minutes walk and there are also some lovely beaches slightly further away and we hired bikes to reach some of these. We chose to travel without a car which is perfectly feasible using the ferry from Split and the bus connection to Jelsa although you can hire a car for a day if you want to venture further afield. Hvar, and in particular Jelsa, is a gem of a place and we can recommend Captain Nikos house as a lovely place to stay

PERFECT GET-AWAY!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful apartment - one of the nicest we have ever stayed in. Beautifully decorated, well equipped and nicely laid out. The landlady was very helpful and provided us with all the info we needed for our stay and onward journey. Excellent location although we didn't quite get used to the church bells. Would Definately recommend.
