About Martyn & Jacquie Langdon
We first visited Bol in 2005 and fell in love with the place and have been visiting several times a year since. We love the relaxed atmosphere and the fact that the beaches, bars and restaurants are all within easy walking distance. We like to sit and enjoy a glass of wine or cocktail whilst looking at the sea or watching the world go by in the sunshine. We also take the opportunity to do some scuba-diving when we are feeling energetic. We sometimes hire a car to explore the natural beauty of the island but often prefer to just relax in Bol where we have several Croatian and English friends.
Martyn & Jacquie Langdon purchased this Apartment in 2014
Why Martyn & Jacquie Langdon chose Bol
The apartment offers us the space and facilities to be truly a second home for us. We were able to choose much of the design and decor ourselves and have furnished it as a home rather than a rental property. We love the convenience of being a short walk from the centre of the village and also having our own outdoor space where we can enjoy the warm summer evenings and views to the mountains and out to sea, dolphin watching.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are very lucky to have a spacious outdoor area including a private swimming pool and grill - it is one of the very few apartments in Bol to have these facilities. The apartment is ideally located within easy reach of the centre and several beaches a short stroll away. Our local property manager will be pleased to welcome you to the apartment and share some of his local knowledge with you.

Any communications with the owners were prompt and helpful.
It’s a short walk into town and I think it’s been mentioned in a previous review that it is quite steep but a longer walk would take you along an easier gradient.
I haven’t much more to add other than a top tip- none of the currency exchange bureaus take cards. It’s all cash exchange. There are ATMs though so that’s how we got more money out and most restaurants take card payments. The exchange rate would have been better had we bought out more cash though.
Hi Sian. Thanks for your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stay. Until recently, the Croatian economy has very much been cash based and it's only in the last few years that most restaurants have taken cards. I think you're right in that generally you get a better rate for cash than on a card. It's a shame that the local bank closed last year, albeit there is one at Split Airport or in Supetar and we usually visit these on arrival. Alternatively there are a number of currency exchange offices or ATMs in Bol if guests need to obtain local currency.
Lovely apartment in beautiful Bol
Luna is a lovely apartment in a good location in a beautiful town. Little bit of a climb up from the town but not too taxing. Pool is great and there aren't many apartments with them especially at this price, so great value for money. Makes a big difference that Martyn and Jacquie stay themselves, as everything you will need is there making it a home from home for the renter. Loved it!
Thanks for your lovely review. It's great that you saw it as a home from home...that was certainly our intention as we enjoy spending time there ourselves. Even in winter when Bol is quiet it's great to feel you have your home comforts around you. There are slightly longer, less steep routes from the centre but we always see it as an opportunity to walk off the food and drink we've enjoyed in the local bars and restaurants! Hopefully we will welcome you back in future.
Great apartment in beautiful Bol
Amazing high spec apartment, exceptionally clean. Brilliant to have your own pool. Great location just a few minutes from the harbour & wonderful mountain views.
Thank you for your great review. We really appreciate having our own pool and it's been a hit with all of our guests, especially on those lazy days when you just want to relax and enjoy the environment. In our opinion the views inland are equal to the sea views. We are also very lucky to have Martina and Franky keeping the apartment spotless and pool so well maintained.
First time in Croatia
Very clean, well set up with it's own pool and views. A quiet restful retreat only minutes from the harbour. It was nice to live without a car and yet be able to see everything in Bol by walking. The short, steep return walk can be easily circumvented by taking a taxi.
Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you had a restful break and found everything easily accessible within Bol. Whilst there are a number of different short routes back to the apartment from the centre there are always taxis (or a land train in main season) for those who prefer this option. We usually stop off at the bakery or small supermarket on the walk back or stop near the top to look for the red backed shrike that is often seen in the trees opposite. We hope to welcome you back in the future.
Fantastic apartment in a lovely part of Croatia
The apartment has everything you could wish for sea view, great pool and furnished to a very high standard and immaculate. There are some fantastic restaurants nearby. If you walk down to the lovely harbour you will find more restaurants and bars to try and mix with friendly people from all over the world. The local beaches are lovely and a great chance to mix with the friendly Croatian locals. The boat taxi is a great way to get to Zlatni Rat beach (golden horn) where you can spend a great day relaxing. We had a fantastic holiday and would recommend this apartment and area of Croatia to anyone “We will be back”.
So pleased you enjoyed not only the apartment but also the local hospitality and facilities. We look forward to welcoming you back in the future. We have already started to receive bookings for 2019 and Easyjet flights are released over the next 2 weeks which we are also looking forward to checking out!
A picturesque and award winning (voted Number One Tourist Destination in Croatia in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 and Best Kept Town in Dalmatia). It is a small town on the south of Brac Island offering an excellent choice of places to eat and drink or just relax and watch the boats in the attractive harbour. It is a popular destination for both couples and families.
* The resort is also recognised for its fabulously clean and pebbled beaches (the most famous being Zlatni Rat - the Golden Horn) and crystal clear water - ideal for watersports such as scuba diving, windsurfing, kite surfing and sailing. It also offers safe bathing for families.
* Bol is also a very popular location for tennis and there are a range of courts available locally.
* For those wishing to explore the island, car, bicycle, quad bike and scooter hire are all available locally although if you plan to hire a car for the entire holiday, it is recommended that you do this in advance for pick up from the airport.
