About Adele Hetherington
We love beautiful things - luxury at its best - we own and run all our homes giving a personal service. Our standards are high and our staff friendly and enthusiatic. What we offer at our homes is something special - not just another villa rental
Adele Hetherington purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Adele Hetherington chose Selca
The Dalmatian Coast is just the best location - Villa Rosemarine is a huge villa - set over 3 levels with a exclusive rustic feel - 3 luxurious sitting rooms and many terraces to sit and watch the view. EVERY bedroom has a view directly to the Adriatic - perfect.. WE purchased the villa and pulled it down and rebuilt it using the old stone on the same footprint.
What makes this Villa unique
Huge villa allowing for family groups to come together - clear blue water, dolphins, delicious food, friendly people. Our Villa is a rare find - sitting in a quiet bay away from it all yet just minutes to the villages - there is something for everyone.
Pool / Spa
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
WE will return....blissful Villa Rosemarine
An incredible retreat set in a truly wonderful location on the Adriatic Sea. With a private jetty to launch kayaks and the boat skippered by Simon, we were spoilt with options to explore the lovely island of Brac.
With friendly and professional staff our every needs were catered to. Milka, the house manager went above and beyond to coordinate our stay and recommend anything you could desire.
We loved the decor of the house and the rustic charm of the restored exterior. The rooms are luxuriously fitted with the most gorgeous beds you will ever sleep on.
September is a great time to go as the temp is super and the evenings are a little cooler.
Exploring beautiful Croatia has never felt so spectacular and unique as it has from this Villa. We will certainly be visting again!
Heaven on earth
A piece of heaven! The villa has been sympathetically restored and retains a rustic Croatian feel with beautiful local stonework. Right on the water’s edge, it’s set on three levels with stunning views from each and an array of spaces to socialise in or retreat to. The pine trees add to the peaceful atmosphere. Bedrooms were tastefully furnished with the luxury of en-suites and the beds were more comfortable than home! The kitchen had recently been refurbished and was well kitted out for any cooking you had in mind.The villa manager, Milka, was a fountain of knowledge about the island, with great restaurant recommendations and the option of have having meals catered for and exploring the islands by boat (skippered by Milka’s husband, Simon) took luxury to another level. Kayaking on the stunning blue water was a highlight and so convenient to be able to launch from your own jetty. The hardest part of this memorable experience was leaving. Can’t recommend highly enough - definitely one for sharing with friends and family and we look forward to coming back.
Beyond our high expectations
We made our long journey back home after an amazing week at Villa Rosemarine. Milka and Simon were fantastic hosts and took very good care of us. You have done an incredible job at restoring the villa and the location is breathtaking.
During our trip we balanced seeing some of the local sites, enjoying the ocean and relaxing at the Villa - we loved our brief visit to Croatia.
Thank you for arranging our dinner at Villa Akuna - it definitely was one of our highlights. Milka’s mom is a great cook and we enjoyed her home cooking. Villa Akuna is also a special place with its more modern feel.
Thank you for sharing your house! We hope to visit again.
A truly amazing place. If you would like the best of everything you will get it in Villa Rosemarine . For somebody who likes privacy, this is definitely the place to be. There are lots of different areas where you can relax, read a book etc. which makes it so very special. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and each has their own en-suite which is again decorated to its highest standards. A main issue for me is always the beds and this place certainly has the best comfortable beds I have ever known. And of course, if you would like to go by power boat to different places, the boat can be organized. I would definitely recommend this place as this is the most luxurious home I have ever rented. If you have been once, you will definitely go back every year. Simply the best.
We contacted Bliss Luxury Villas because had heard very good things about them from friends and we specifically wanted to stay on the Dalmatian Coast. Villa Rosemarine was already booked so we were offered Akuna, a brand new villa situated on the coast just nearby. I knew very little about Akuna prior to arriving and from the moment of stepping out of the car was struck by the tastefulness and beauty of the architecture as set against the backdrop of the Adriatic. From material selection to design everything is first class. On the seaward side all rooms open onto patios by way of sliding glass doors, interiors are set in light colors, natural materials, fine furniture and original art, creating a wonderfully relaxing ambience. Amenities include a pool, hot tub, direct access to the sea, and a boat that can be rented for skiing or other activities on a daily basis. On the inward journey we took the ferry from Split to Supetar, and from there by taxi to Akuna. Returning we traveled by boat from Akuna directly to a dock located adjacent to the Split airport, which was so much easier and quicker than the ferry. We had an excellent time at Akuna!
We had the most amazing family holiday at Villa Akuna. To say it is luxurious is not doing it justice. The villa is stunning, modern and well equipped. The staff were so friendly and helpful and the local restaurants were a real treat. We had fun in the pool, fun in the sun, fun in the sea and of course the gym and sauna. The whole family loved the house, the views and the boat trips. We will definitely be back next year. Wonderful.
Being right on the sea the villa lends itself to enjoyment with the BRAND NEW 2012 resident boat and skipper so small bays with 'Grill' restaurants and markets as well as water skiing.
Blessed with a sublime Adriatic Coast, Croatia is a treasure trove of Roman ruins, medieval castles, renaissance hilltop towns and perennial lush green inlands. There is truly something for everyone.
We really have found a blissful spot under the pines by the crystal clear Adriatic.
