It's more than one reason. Unique position in Hvar is one of them.
More than hundreds years of family history is making atmosphere of old house. Original owner Anton built this house in 1887. On the end of 19th century his oldest son John looking for adventure sailed to Japan. After a while he left Japan and “discovers” California. Finding life nice there he fetched one by one his other four brothers from Hvar.
When his time to get married come he has to listen to his mothers will: “don’t ever marry any but Croatian”. So, he took advise from my grand grandmothers brother who was in California too, came back to Croatia and meet my grand grandmothers sister and they married and left for California again.
We “fought” for decades with former system to get house back to family. Last several years we succeeded and start renewing it. From the roof to the last pipe and wire.
Now we restore house completely. Inside 60 cm thick stone walls everything is new for your comfort. Apartments are not made “for rent” they are furnished and equipped for nice living. I personally insisted on doing everything “first class”. My thoughts where: it must be so good that I would be satisfied. We traveled a lot and it is not always that we felt comfortable like being at home. This is exactly idea for our guests: to fill like being home, comfortable and warm, nice and clean.
Every window in house has 'it's own view'. Castle on the north, Pjaca, Riva and port on east windows as well as entrance in port and island Galesnik that protect Hvar from the south, St. Jerolim and Marinkovac islands on south windows...
There are three palm trees around house, two olive trees, two lemons, one Grapefruit. 81 species of flowers and weeds, succulents, cactus, dessert rose, immortelle, rosemary, lavender, sage, basilica, thyme…
In the middle of this paradise having dinner in the yard or just laying on the sun is an attraction.
