The boat house, an unusual stone house in country house style.
This house of a former boat builder is unusual in many ways. Very untypical for stone houses in the protected areas of the old towns of Dalmatia, it is characterized by almost three meters high ceilings. The large, partly up to one hundred years old and elaborately renovated windows flood the rooms with lots of light. Their elaborate design reminds of the Jugendstil period, as we know from our old buildings in Western Europe. At the end of a row of old town houses, it seems almost to be detached. With its large garden it appears airy and bright. Due to the location on the edge of the old town center, it is one of the few original stone houses, which can be reached by car and offer a parking space directly in front of the door. You are able to reach the property via a narrow alley that can be driven by car. Through the wooden gate, in a natural stone wall, you enter the garden. The house welcomes you with its first terrace, equipped with a dining table for six persons, which seems to exude the aroma of coffee and fresh bread rolls. The elaborately decorated garden, planted with olives, lavender and rosemary, provides a Mediterranean welcome, sun beds invite you to feel comfortable. Next to the house, in front of the former stable buildings, is the second terrace. Another large dining area attracts to rest, especially in the early evening hours, as the sun sinks behind the property walls, which give pleasant shade on hot days.
If you enter the house now on the ground floor, you enter the dining room with its large table, where the inhabitants of the house can easily find space. Also the fully equipped kitchen is here. In the rear part of the large room, separated by a partitioning semi-high wall, is the living room, with large corner sofa, armchair and TV. This also provides cozy evening hours in the house. Both areas can, of course, be heated and cooled, as are the bedrooms, with air conditioning. Next to the living rooms, the first bedroom with a large bed, which is built like a alcove, and radiates comfort and protection. Nextdoor the bathroom with shower, sink and toilet. Across the old wooden stairs you enter the upper floor with its almost ten meters long corridor. The newly renovated parquet recalls the beneficial times of the builder, at the beginning of the 20th century. Upstairs you will find a very spacious bathroom and two bedrooms each with a double bed, naturally also air-conditioned. Looking out of the window of the corridor, the view swipes over the gardens of Betina, the sea between Murter and the mainland, and the mountains of the Velebit behind them. Who likes leaves the house now across the door on the first floor. Here you will find a small balcony and you will return to the garden by the outside staircase.
All the rooms of the property are harmonious and lovingly furnished with antique furniture in country house style and impress with their bright, friendly atmosphere. Dishwasher and washing machine complete the comfort. After only a few steps through the beautiful old town alleys of Betina you reach the elaborately and lovingly restored market square in the center of the small town. There are numerous cafes, restaurants and the harbour with its numerous historical wooden boats, which remind us of the long tradition of shipbuilding in Betina. The nearest bathing spot in the town center is only about 200m away, a small sea bath and a pebbly beach are about 400m away and are easy to reach, even with children, by feet. In the house you have internet via Wlan.
The pearls of the Adriatic, Sibenik, Zadar, Split and Trogir and the national parks Krka and Kornati invite to day trips.
We look forward to see you in Dalmatia!
