Tell me more about the apartment and the area: This property is located high above the village of Okrug Gornji and has stunning views over the islands. It is in a very tranquil location, right beside a green belt area. The apartment building itself has only 8 apartments and our representative Bozena lives on the ground floor. This apartment is especially well laid out for large groups, as the main bedroom with private balcony and ensuite is separated from the other bedrooms by the living space. The kitchen is very well equipped and has all modern conveniences. The beds are large with extremely confortable foam mattresses. All rooms have air conditioning. The swimming pool is located on an elevated site just behind the apartment and is for the private use of the 8 apartments only. The beach is 450m away and is easily accessible on foot. The walk downhill takes approximately 6 minutes - please be advised the walk back will take longer, particularly in the heat.
Once final payments have been received, we will forward a welcome pack with information on the apartment and the local area, as well as details on ferry times and recommendations for local restaurants.

9. Our excellent reviews!
We loved our stay in your well equipped modern apartment. We particularly liked that we could access the 2 different sides of the island even without a car. The kids loved going to the busy beach and inflatables off the main beach during the day and liked the buzzing atmosphere down there in the evenings. We enjoyed the quiet coves and bathing platforms on the other side, so best of both worlds. Kids then happy to spend a good portion of the afternoon / early evening in the pool which they had to themselves the majority of the time. We enjoyed Roko restaurant the best and went back there more than once. We also had a great (and cheap) Picante Pizza at Aldo's in the village and the kids enjoyed the lady who ran it making a fuss of them.
Things to change? - nothing really a detailed map with street names etc would have been good even from google maps or wherever in the welcome pack so we didn't get lost. Somewhere to put toiletries / perfume etc in the bathroom but these are only tiny things and I wouldn't have commented if you didn't ask.
The apartment was more than big enough for our party of five, with a lovely view over the surrounding area. The walk up to the apartment from the beach is very steep, and I found it hard work, which didn't get any easier as the week went on! The pool area has 7 sunbeds and on the 4 occasions we used the pool we were the only ones. We took the boat into Trojir several times, which we all loved. We also drove to Krka national park, which was good, but over priced, and would have been better later in the year when there was more water on the falls.
A exellent choise. Great wiew, good contiditons, nice welcome. A perfect holiday for two adults and two tenageers.
We just came back from two week holiday (first in Croatia) and we were very happy with the apartment and service that came with it.
The apartment itself was perfect for our group - 2 senior citizen, 2 adults and three kids. It had enough space and all the comforts we needed. Although can't vouch for TV or music system since we never had time to turn them on. The outside grill was a nice touch and even if not the latest model it got the job done easy enough and we did use it to make a lunch or dinner several times. The pool is very handy and we all used it several times on early evenings after coming back from beach. It is also a a good alternative for those who don't want to walk or take taxi uphill on hot days. The only surprise for us was that the main fuse will "blow" is all the ac + oven + washing machine are in use simultaneously - but this we could have guessed. The solution was to turn some of them off and flip the main fuse back on in the fuse box located just inside the apartment high on the left wall.
Bozena was as helpful as stated here before. She even hooked us up with WiFi the first day.
The tourist Assistance Service (Vjenceslav Raukar) that Bozena arranged to pick us from airport was great and I highly recommend using them during your stay. The prices are fair but the real value comes from service. Reliable, friendly (the kids called him our Croatian Uncle) and helpful. On the way to apartment we were shown the location of supermarkets, restaurants and walking paths + with very reasonable price we were driven to supermarket and back with loads of drinks and food. We were also recommended some day trips and offered transportation services for them. Even that I usually drive a rental I was very happy to just sit back and relax and let the local pro handle it this time. We went with them to waterfalls and rafting (Omis) + trip back from Split (went there by taxi-boats). Highly recommendable trips all.
We had a fabulous first visit to Croatia and will certainly be returning.The apartment was clean, nicely furnished and the views from the balcony are stunning. We had fantastic service from the owners who were very helpful and from Bozena, the manager who was really friendly and provided some good local knowledge. We loved the resort, Trogir and Split are must do trips and we tried quite a few local bars and restaurants and didn't have a bad experience anywhere. The locals couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, overall we had a brilliant holiday. The hill to the apartment is steep though but worth it for the comfort and views.
We really enjoyed our holidays at the apartment. Bozena was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and well-maintained, the view on the sea was great.
We surely will come back one day und we can recommend the apartment to everybody interested in having a great time in croatia.
We (family with 3 adults an two kids) had a very good time here in Ciovo.
The accommodation was clean and well equiped. We had everything that we needed and were made to feel welcome. We (especially our children) made good use of the pool because the walk down the hill to the (high frequented) beach and back up to the apartment is very steep and tiring in the heat of july. But the view from the balcony was amazing! The bookings were straight forward and communication with the owners
was very good, we got a lot of informations beforehand. Bozena, who manages the apartment, was also friendly and helpful throuhout our stay.
The old town of Trogir is a UNESCO world heritage centre and is a maze of narrow cobbled streets, full of small intimate restaurants, bars and ice-cream parlours. Lovers of cultural and historical monuments, original architecture and art can wander around at their leisure, soaking up the history. The waterfront, with its long promenade, bars and restaurants is particularly popular at night. Indulge in some celebrity spotting as luxury boats come in to moor.
SPLIT - Split is a shoppers paradise, whether wandering through the narrow cobbled streets or haggling for bargains at the large outdoor market. When you need a rest, where better to enjoy a cup of coffee than on the expansive marina looking out onto the islands of Brac and Hvar.
PRIMOSTEN, a gorgeous islet 20 minutes north of Trogir. The prefect place to spend a day exploring.
KRKA Waterfalls-enjoy a leisurely walk through the forest, spectacular views of the waterfalls and the chance to swim in the lake.
Other Activities: quad biking, white water rafting
