We had a lovely stay in the house. It was very well equipped, very spacious and overall very comfortable. Lots of shade around the pool, including a lovely gazebo. There's a great wood-fired BBQ, table-tennis table, and 2 double kyaks tied up on the rock pontoon. We thought Milna was terrific, with a reasonable array of restaurants - although haut-cuisine should not be expected.
Stipe and Nora, looking after the house (they don't live on-site) were very accommodating, although we made little use of their services.
There were a few downsides to be aware of if considering a booking:
Although property tile indicates "a few steps from the sea", it is in fact down a continuation of the steep hill from the road. There is a tiny stony beach, but to reach the pontoon (where the kyaks are located plus sunbeds), it is then a difficult walk. Not that long, but its an uneven, rocky and narrow path - totally unsuitable for buggies and the less able.
The steep hill from the road is really very steep. We walked up it a couple of times so that we could walk to MIlna (25 minutes), but it would again be a severe challenge for anyone pushing a buggy, less able, or with a heart condition ! Even driving up it was a challenge to our car, requiring a bit of a run up to make it without stalling.
The house is "green", insofar as it is solar powered. The drawback is that to run any major appliance, a diesel generator needs to be started. Whilst this wasn't a huge issue, it was irritating to have to turn on the generator just to grill a piece of toast ! And a bit noisy, although the generator is located in an outbuilding with some sound-proofing.
Not the fault of our hosts in any way, but a big downside was the abundance of cats that would appear at every meal-time. We were not sure if these were strays, or belonged to people across the way, but they were persistent despite being chased away on sight.
Would we stay there again ? Probably not. We prefer to walk to the nearest village and restaurants, and whilst this was possible it was a long way (25 minutes each way - and that hill before you get started !!)
Would we recommend the property ? With the above downsides and caveats taken into consideration, yes we would. The house is everything the brochure says - although the distance from the sea does stretch it a bit. We had a fabulous time, and if you want to just stay in and around the house, its perfect.

We really liked Croatia and very much your house!! The house was really nice with all the facilities you can need. We were also very happy since the weather turned out to be just fine that week. I must also say that Spike was very friendly and recommended restaurants etc.
We will for sure come back to Croatia and also recommend our friends to rent your house :-)
I sayed at this wonderful villa with a group of 8 friends to celebrate my 50th Birthday. We could not have wished for a better stay. The villa is simply stunning and the Island itself is extraordinary.
The villa staff were very friendly and helpful but not intrusive. On the evening of my Birthday they cooked a croation style BBQ for us with local salads that was delightful.
I would not hesitate to recomend this villa to anyone considering a stay on the island and would like to return and enjoy another stay myself.

Our family have just completed the most wonderful holiday at the Lotus Villa. Coming all the way from New Zealand it was very important to have a beautiful place to stay and not to be disappointed from viewing on the internet, so it was with great pleasure that we arrived on the island of Brac to find this amazing Villa. There was not one thing that was not perfect from the communication with the owners to the staff – nothing was too much trouble.
The house couldn’t have suited us better with adults and children alike – there was something for everyone and lots of lovely spaces . The pool was wonderful , the house beautiful and the position of the Villa just stunning.
I would definitely recommend Lotus Villa to anyone that is making a trip to the beautiful Croatia – you won’t be disappointed – it was an absolute highlight for us – a big thank you to the owners for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise. I would love to come again one day.
Kindest regards from New Zealand
Wonderful relaxing holiday a tranquil peace of paradise
Lotus Villa is exactly as described and shown in the pictures - beautiful! What a wonderful internet find! We must have looked at 50 properties on-line and chose this one because it looked so delightful. Everything is provided for a wonderful comfortable stay.... The house has been very thoughtfully designed... and the owner's personal style shines through.. it is so welcoming that you feel at home as soon as you arrive.
Car is necessary. We had a great long weekend, also because we could ask the stuff for almost anything, nothing was too much for them. Thank you. Family Gondy and friends
Fantasztikus napokat töltöttünk el a mesés Lotus Villában, ami teljes mértékben azt adta, amit a képeken láttunk. Rengeteg keresgélés után találtuk meg a Lotus Villát, aminél jobbat nem is találhattunk volna.Minden biztosított volt a tökéletes kényelem eléréséhez. Azonnal otthon éreztük magunkat a házban. A ház személyzete is rendkívül kedves és segít?kész volt, mindenben próbált a kedvünkre tenni. Köszönünk mindent!! a Gondy család és barátok
My family and I just returned from a beautiful relaxing vacation were we spent 4 nights in this stunning villa.
It was recommended to us by a friend and it fulfilled all are expectations and more. The location is unique, the view and the bay simply remarkable.
The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly discreet. Thanks for the very helpful recommendations for places to eat and organizing the boat excursion to the island Hvar.
The pool is so nice. It’s remote and very quiet; you can just sit back and truly relax. The kids really loved the pool, and had a fabulous time.
Also I would like to thank the staff for the lovely BBQ they prepared for us, it was very yummy!
I would love to visit again soon, and would recommend it to anyone. It was truly an unforgettable vacation!
