Guestbook comments from the owner
"Great location”

4 of 5 stars. Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in June 2014

A sweet little place ideal for a couple and very close to the beautiful sea, well appointed and clean. We had a wonderful time exploring the coastline and local restaurants, all within easy walking distance. Booking was easy with lots of very good communication with the owner.

Perfect place to chill!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two beautiful weeks at villa joy in Viganj. The house was ideal for a couple- a bit small for 4 I would think. Just steps away from the turquoise sea where we enjoyed an early morning swim each day- water just beautiful. Four restaurants nearby- for us Maritimo was by far the best- succulent fish dishes, great pizzas and delicious pancakes! A boat trip around the islands is a must- about 75 euro for the day's boat rental hired locally. Amazing sights. The supermarket has all you need so no need to go back and forth to Orebic. Wine is delicious and cheap too. We sat on the pier many nights with our rosé- so peaceful and casual. The whole place is completely relaxed and we had a wonderful holiday- just what one needs to destress. Villa Joy was perfect and it was a pleasure to correspond with Lindsey- she is so organised and prompt. We hope to come back one day!

A SMALL PEARL FROM THE ADRIATIC

  • 5 of 5
Having found this Bijou property on my last sortie, for another break in Croatia we found Villa joy, although it should be renamed Gem as it is a pearl in a very pretty area of Croatia, Viganj is an unspoilt little place and I hope it stays like it. Lyndsey was very efficient and helpful guiding us prior to our break, giving a minefield of info. it is 2.5 hours from Dubrovnik airport, but the trip along the coastline onto the peninuslar is worth every minute, we came by cab and Tomi our driver was a real gent and gave us a lowdown of many interesting facts. so the property was exactly as it said on the tin, great for a couple, huge kitchen area, adeqaute bathroom, and the most comfortable bed I have slept in on holiday. clean, tidy and best sun terrace you could ever hope for, and when it gets un bearable its minutes from the sea, which is wonderful to cool off in. good array of local restaurants on the strip, all accomdating and cheap, meals go large in Croatia beware, best pizza in the world, that is saying something with Italy not so far away, the Croatians believe they were nicked from them anyway. the local wine is exceptional do not miss out on this superb, up there with the best in the world. windsurfing, kite boarding and bike hire on the strip, the strip is always buzzing, good supermarket, good local fruit and veg shop. And Korcula a boat ride away for less that £3.00 return, you will go here again and again stunning place, rub shoulders with the rich, stunning sun sets and exceptional dining along wall front looking to Orebic and the islands, watching the hub bub of all types of vessells coming to and from. most people you come across in Croatia, are friendly inviting people, everywhere is spot less very proud and beautiful. cannot hesitate in recommending 100% we had been to Croatia in 2013, so again here in 2014, we are also considering 2015. I really hope it never gets spoilt we love the place ..... first class in every respect well done Lyndsey and Villa Joy, you were all of this. thankyou.

Suited us perfectly

  • 5 of 5
House was described well and matched advert, it is well maintained and lovely and clean. We were so close to the sea we spent most time there, but also travelled and explored the area as far as Loviste to Dubrovnik.
We received good information before we left, found the villa easily. Everyone was very friendly, thank you, we loved it.

Lovely location, quiet but close to all amenities

  • 5 of 5
We have just recently returned from Villa Joy and Viganj. If you love peace, quiet and unspoilt, then you will love Viganj. It was ideal that everything we needed was within walking distance, supermarket, ATM, beach, bars and restaurants so there was no need to drive if you did not wish to. The villa was lovely and clean and well equipped, the air conditioning was much appreciated. We visited Loviste, Trestenica (nice beach), Tripanj and of course Korcula. Did not manage. all the sightseeing we would have liked as we were too busy relaxing. Loved Knobo Forte Restaurant, and thought the Bistro Ponte further along very good value. We had a few BBQ's and enjoyed drinking the local wine (approx £2.00 a litre from a little store approx 100 metres to the left of the villa) which also sold lovely fresh fruits. Happy to say that due to Lindsey's very comprehensive directions, we did not even get lost when heading from airport. Have to say a big thank you to Fani and Lindsey for their help with tracking my lost luggage and for arranging the delivery the next day to the villa. Found all the locals very pleasant, helpful and courteous. We enjoyed our days sitting on the beach watching the windsurfers. The weather was glorious and the afternoon breeze was much appreciated I would definitely visit again and would recommend this villa mainly to couples looking for peace and quiet.

Owner's Response: Delighted you loved Villa Joy and the wonderful seaside village of Viganj. Glad you found the direction simple, were able to relax, found everything you needed within short walking distance, and were able to do some sightseeing too. Those two nearby restaurants are among our favourites, as is Ivan's Grill on the hill (but that does involve a 5 minute uphill walk!!). We would love to welcome you back very very soon - specially as I don't think you managed time for the Fish Picnic, or any boating?!
Thank you and best wishes, Lindsey

Fab holiday

  • 5 of 5
Loved our stay at Villa Joy: the aircon was very good and very welcome during our daily siestas! Picked tasty plums and figs whilst admiring the lovely view up the mountain. Beds were very comfortable, linen very clean (whole apartment was spotless) and there was plenty of cutlery, crockery, pots and pans, glasses etc. Kitchen is a good size and the patio area is lovely, love the sliding glass doors opening onto the large private patio. There is easy access to the supermarket and the fresh fruit and veg shop.

Our highlight was the beach, easy access and straight opposite the villa and very close. Was also lovely to be able to walk to a choice of restaurants, serving lovely fresh food, very reasonably priced. Our favourite was a huge salad for four, for £4, occasionally accompanied by a table pizza for £4 too (at Camp Ponta restaurant). Also loved Ivan's Dining Place, a short stroll up the mountain for very tender Dalmatian dishes cooked "under the bell".

Would love to return next year, the area is so unspoilt and uncrowded. Owners very helpful too, thank you very much!

A real tonic!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed this holiday. From the very beginning the owners were extremely helpful in helping us to plan our journey and with their advice everything went very smoothly. We were delighted to arrive and find such a beautiful setting and found all the locals to be friendly and helpful. Although it was the school holidays we never felt it was too busy or crowded, in fact it was the opposite as we had access to what seemed to be our own bit of beach. We loved the local restaurants, our particular favourite being Konoba Forte - excellent food and very reasonably priced. It felt like a real tonic to have such beautiful surroundings and wonderful fresh sea air. The house was spotless and in a very quiet position and a delight to return to each day. Thoroughly recommended!
