|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Villa By The Sea, Oleandra, the perfect jumping off point to all the beautiful islands, is ideally situated between the fabulous, energetic city of Split and the gorgeous, seaside town of Trogir. This unique, spacious, light-filled residence has panoramic views of the Adriatic Sea, the seven Kastela, Split, and Ciovo, with a stone stairway allowing access to the pebble beach below, where you can sunbath, swim, and sail.
Surrounded by its own gardens of oleander, lavender, rosemary, fig and olive trees, this luxurious yet minimalist 3-bedroom villa is truly a retreat for those looking to get away from it all.
The house is behind its own charming gate, with a large car port. The enormous wraparound, covered terrace, is ideal for al fresco dining or just relaxing while enjoying the sea views. There's a large living/dining room with cathedral ceilings and a fireplace, as well as a fully-equipped, modern kitchen with Bosch appliances.
You will be welcomed at the villa by your host. He can also help organize excursions, cultural and recreational visits, if you so desire.
The location of the house is remote and quiet. There is a little cafe/bar, another beach, and fishing port within walking distance. It is a site for the European Coastal Airline Hydroplane. You can take a trip to Hvar and it only takes 13 minutes and it cost about 40 Euro one way. You can check their Facebook page for more information.
Recommended visits from Villa Oleadra include: Primosten (33km), Krka National Park (50 km), Kornati National Park (Archipelago), Paklenica Park (130km - a paradise for climbers and hikers), Solin/Salona (15 km), Klis (34 km) with its 7th century fortress, and Medugorje (150 km) Catholic pilgrimage. Of course, Split, Trogir, and the often overlooked Seven Kastela are highly recommended.
The villa has one of the best location on the Dalmatian coast, close to both Split and Trogir, it is perfect for hosting events, family vacations, exploring the local culture and sites.
Croatia and the Dalmatian coast is a hot destination and offer over 1200 islands, city centers and vast natural beauty to explore.
The ferry and water taxi are the best way to explore the labyrinth of islands. Schedules are primarily arranged to accommodate the native islanders and run more frequently in the summer months.
The UNESCO designated city of Split is the largest on the Adriatic coast and retains thousands of years of several cultural influences. Gothic cathedrals and Renaissance palaces line the seafront which is the best jumping off point to the neighboring islands.
Villa Oleandra is situated in one of the best locations on the Adriatic coast. The airport is conveniently close, meaning you will reach your destination quickly and without much hassle. Despite the proximity to the airport, it is a quiet haven since the flight path is never overhead. Furthermore, Villa Oleandra is located directly on the beach, therefore if you are seeking a beach-side retreat with easy access, this is a perfect choice for you.
We enjoyed two great and relaxing weeks in this phantastic house with all the comforts you need for perfect summer holidays. The property, the view and the beach are just TOP. Same as the clear sea.
Thank you dear Nada for letting us participate at your " small paradise" during this two weeks
On Sunday we came back happy and satisfied to a cold and rainy Zuerich. The holiday at your house and in Croatia was just great! A lot of space (especially for a family with 6 chlidren), all comfort (great beds and bathrooms), lovely beach, friendly people, nice weather… and so on! My wife feels allready homesick to it! Therefore … thank you and your husband to offer us this great house and perfect place!
Now we will go back to work with a lot of Croation-Sun in our hearts and positive impressions of a other great country on this planet.
Hopefully we can once come again.
With best regards,
We just loved our two weeks stay in this modern and spacious villa, just in front of a great and uncrowded beach. The high comfort of this property, the phantastic view and the clear see beneath your feet gives you anything you need for a relaxing and unique summer-holiday. Absolut perfect for a family like us, with children between 5 and 18 years of age. The nearness to the airport is no problem at all. What you mainly hear is the nice sound of the whims. The reservation-process and care of the owners as well as their local representative was very pleasant, uncomplicate and obliging. We say our warmest thanks to them and hope, to come back to this small paradise once again!
Wir haben in diesem grosszügigen und äusserst komfortablen Haus einen traumhaften Sommerurlaub verbracht. Einen perfekten Kieselstrand - welchen nur Einheimische kennen - mit klarem Wasser direkt vor den Füssen (ideal auch für Kleinkinder!). Super Sicht auf die Bucht sowie auf die Stadt Split (ca. 20 km entfernt). Der nahe gelegene Flughafen störte in keiner Weise. Ideal gelegen auch für Ausflüge in die absolut sehenswerten Städte wie Trogir und Split. Ein Ort also, wo man jederzeit gerne wieder hingeht, mit einer sehr angenehmen und zuvorkommenden Vermieterin. Für uns war es Sommerurlaub pur!
Our stay here was unbelievable! The house was immaculate and provided a level of accommodation that felt both sophisticated and comfortable. The garden was pristine and well manicured. Our children enjoyed playing on the beach that is accessible by stairs from the garden - they spent hours exploring the sea urchins, crabs, and sea snails in the clear water. Lazy afternoons spent in the shade of the veranda put the whole family into a relaxed mood where we were able to reconnect. This was heaven and we hope to return here soon! Thank you for sharing your home with us!
We stayed here for just under a week in the beginning of August 2015. We were very happy with the overall experience. Although we were a little concerned about the proximity to the airport, in the end this was not an issue and really did not bother us. The view is stunning with the sea underneath the house and a private entrance onto the beach. It was such a real pleasure to swim every morning before our breakfast - with no one to disturb us. The house itself is very well thought out - extremely comfortable and airy. There is one very large and bright living space. There are only three bedrooms, but all to a high standard with modern equipment. There are plenty of areas to sun bathe around the house, and if it gets too hot, the AC in the house works very well. The kitchen is also well equipped and a pleasure to use.
Ideally you would need a car or a scooter - its 4km to Trogir, similar to Kastel, and 18km to Split which is extraordinary and worth a few visits. We liked Kastel as its quite authentic with fewer foreign tourists. Trogir has a good food market and beautiful cathedral and town center. There is a great mix of great sea and historical sites to visit.
We would hope to come back again some time.
The first time we stayed at this property in 2012, we thoroughly loved it and resolved to return again someday. This year, we finally got around to it and enjoyed another great week in this truly singular house. It is spacious, well-kept and well-equipped, provides stunning views and is perfect for a family looking for a base to enjoy and explore the beautiful Croatian coast. Since the house is right on the water, you can access the beach any time while enjoying the privacy and comfort of your own property. It was very warm during our stay, and we appreciated the well-functioning air-conditioning very much.
It should also be noted that the owner was very helpful and accommodating and took great care to ensure that our stay was enjoyable. Also, the local property manager is very pleasant and provided great help.
As long as this property can be rented, it is definitely on our list for a return visit.
We stayed for 14 nights recently and can highly recommend the welcome. Beautiful garden, comfortable terrace, lovely, spotlessly clean, spacious rooms which are nicely decorated with modern furniture. House has everything for our stay with a little girl and our different everyday needs. There are excellent views of Kastela Riviera which is full of interest. Just a 15 min from Trogir (30 min from Split) for an endless choice of historical things, shops, restaurants and bars.
Owner’s hospitality and warmth are top class and we would like to thank Nada for a lovely stay in this beautiful part of the world. Owner and house manager are a wonderful source of information for helping us to enjoy our holiday and nothing is too much trouble for them. We are really thankful.
Truly a First Class property.
Villa Oleandra is ideally situated in Kastela, between Split and Trogir. Split, a stunning city full of ancient masterpieces (one of which is the former summer palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian), is an urban mecca where tourists flock to see ancient ruins and experience a vibrant nightlife and cafe culture. Trogir is a quaint and beautiful seaside town built by the ancient Greeks over two thousand years ago. Both cities are UNESCO heritage sites. The nearest shops and restaurants are in Trogir (a short 5-10 minute drive), where one can find an abundance of restaurants that offer gourmet Dalmatian cuisine. There is also a bustling open fish market and a farmers' market offering organically-grown fruits and vegetables, local cheeses, as well as various pizzas, sandwiches, and baked goods. You truly can't find a more perfect location for this villa. It's close enough to energetic towns where you can sip a leisurely espresso and people-watch, yet it is the perfect refuge if you simply want to spend your time relaxing by the sea, away from it all.
Speaking of 'getting away from it all,' a mere 10 minute walk from the house you'll find Europe's first ever hydroplane service, with a plane taking off five times throughout the day, connecting you to Jelsa, Hvar in 13 minutes for the price of a ferry from downtown Split. Also here is another beach, with two cute cafes, one with gelato that is delivered to them every morning from the best gelato place in Trogir. Enjoy a quick swim or sip a cappuccino while you wait for a hydroplane to take you to one of the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic. This amazing villa has it all.
