Beautiful property in a peaceful relaxing location

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week here and have had a super time. The location of the villa is ideal for a quieter break but close to restaurants and bars if you want a livelier evening. The beaches are gorgeous and I would highly recommend a morning coffee in the harbour for a bit of relaxation and mindfulness.

Great villa in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well maintained villa in a quiet location only 5 minutes walk from the shops and restaurants of Vrboska. Great location for exploring the western end of Hvar - Hvar town, Stari Grad (our favourite), Jelsa and Vrboska.

Nice to have the pool which was cold at first but very refreshing in the heat once you acclimatised. Villa has everything you need for breakfast.

Good large Tommy supermarket 10 mins drive away by Stari Grad


Do take the seaplane ride to Split from Jelsa every day at 10am then come back on the high speed catamaran ferry from Split at 1630, Split is a nice city and a great day out.

Lots of nice walks too from the villa both around the headland to the beach and from Vrboska to Jelsa. Also you can hire bikes in the village.

Ante the owner was most helpful giving us lots of restaurant recommendations many of which we tried and thoroughly enjoyed.

4 or 5 days is probably enough to explore the western end of Hvar (the eastern half has nothing to recommend it!!).

Car needed.

Amazing holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was the best holiday my family and I have ever had! The villa is perfect - very clean and welcoming with a beautiful decking and pool area. My children particularly liked going in the pool in the dark with the pool lights on flashing!!! Vrboska itself is peaceful and beautiful with lots of small restaurants and cafes and a great winery - Pinata. Do try the wine tasting - we went with our children and they very happily sat and played games while we chatted to the owner. Also the wine we bought there was brilliant and really inexpensive.

But whilst the villa was amazing, what made this holiday for us was Maja and Ante (and of course Marla!). They were fantastic hosts from booking to the day we left. They organised all our transfers from Split, shopped for us so we had food in the fridge when we arrived and were constant sources of help and advice throughout the 2 weeks. Ante booked dinners at amazing hidden little restaurants that we would have never found ourselves and booked transport for us so we could have a drink. I particularly recommend the restaurant in the abandoned village - so special! I think Ante also got us the best tables every time!

He also booked us a day on a speedboat which was the best day we've had ever!! Highly recommend!

Ante and Maja were available all the time to answer questions and help organise days out but never interfered or turned up unannounced - perfect hosts!

I cannot recommend this villa more - we will be back!!

Perfect Place with Perfect Hoss

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfectly clean and functional. It had all of the comforts that one would need and is a well maintained property. It is also nicely located in the quaint town of Vrboska which is well positioned on the island.

The thing that makes this place really memorable and unique is the incredible customer service you get from the owners, Maja and Ante. They are so hospitable that my wife and I couldn't believe it. They are always there for you, lining up days and booking restaurants. Our son got a cut on his head and they had the paramedics waiting outside of the hospital so that by the time we got there he was in and out in 8 minutes with a stitch. They are so nice and remarkably helpful and friendly. You really need people like them to get the most of your vacation since Hvar isn't that easy to navigate otherwise.

We will be back !

  • 5 of 5

We spent a delightful 12 days at the Villa Agava and have just booked to return next year this time for a little longer.

The property was just as it said in the description and was very clean and well cared for.

The owners were very attentive even though they could not be on site this trip they kept in regular touch with us and were helpful and full of ideas to make the holiday perfect.

The village of Vbroska is a jewel small ,friendly and quiet. We loved the beaches and the sea and and spent most days just relaxing.

Since we have returned we have been in touch with the owners and they have been really responsive to ideas and suggestions we look forward to returning in 2015.

Thank you a real treat.
