About Ana Guberina

I'm a visual artist. I love to paint, read good books, travel and meet new people and discover new places and experience the beauty and uniqueness of each.

I also happen to find interest for growing herbs for culinary reasons – there is nothing that gives me more joy than to be able to walk out the door and pick fresh, flavorful herbs for making daily meals or the morning tea.

Ana Guberina purchased this house in 1980

Why Ana Guberina chose Prvić Luka

Since the early Middle Ages Prvic Island was admired for it's beauty by many Croatian travelers, writers and inventors. I could simpy say that I was stunned by the beauty, unique nature, people and customs of this small Dalmatian island, that is protected today as a cultural heritage of Croatia.

Great Holiday Location on Pvic

  • 5 of 5

Loved our holiday (2 adults and 2 children) on Prvic. Our accomodation was excellent and our host, Ana could not have been more helpful. The ferry and taxi-boats make access to large towns on mainland really easy. We spent a full day swimming and boating at Kyrk National Park- really worth it. The island has no cars so the pace is sleepy and relaxed. There are plenty of places to swim and boats/canoes to rent etc. Food/restaurants generally very good but would recommend the hotel for a really nice meal. The house is surrounded by growing fruit and vegetables and has incredible views over the village and small harbour.

Peaceful Tranquility with Fantastic Views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely holiday in Prvic Luka - a fantastic place to unwind and reconnect as a family. Prvic Luka is a very quiet island, especially if you visit it in the Spring (we visited in the May half term), but our 8 year old daughter loved just spending special time with us.

We arrived via a transfer from Split airport courtesy of Taxiboat Kristian (via car and boat) and we were greeted by Ana on our arrival. It was a fantastic start to the holiday and made us feel like VIPs. Thanks to advice from Ivan in advance I was able to book online before we arrived.

It's a bit of a climb up to the house but it is no doubt made up for by the beautiful views of Prvic Luka harbour and surrounding islands. Ana was the perfect host and had prepared the house with lavender and a welcome pack of basic supplies. She gave us an informative tour and was always very keen to ensure that we had everything we needed.

We sampled three restaurants on the island:

- Restaurant Punta (very little choice but beautifully tender steak, a bit pricey)

- Restaurant Val (the hotel restaurant - delicious but small portions)

- Restaurant Mareta (very heavily salted food which I found revolting, got our drinks order wrong and slow service)

We would recommend:

- A trip to NP Krka using Taxiboat Kristian (more expensive but easier than the ferry + bus option). It gets busy but we loved the walk around Skradinski Buk (many fish, croaking frogs, bright blue damsel flies and lizards as well as waterfalls) including a swim in the pool near one of the waterfalls. The walk is mainly shaded which a relief from the heat.

The boat trip to Visovac island was very serene but a little boring for our daughter.

- The ferry to Sibenik - beautiful with enough souvenir shops to keep an 8 year old happy. We had one fantastic, cheap meal in a back street and two OK meals from the main seafront and tourist areas. The Medieval Mediterranean Garden of St Lawrence Monastery was worth a visit for an icecream and coffee.

- Walking to Sepurine to get to larger beaches. None of the beaches on Prvic are sandy but we found the first bay you get to after the walk to Sepurine is good for beach combing for shells at the high tide mark. There are spots for swimming all over the island.

- Bring lots of Kuna in cash as many restaurants don't take card.

- Buy your ferry tickets from the kiosk in the square on the right of the museum (open 10 mins before ferry) - we missed this before our first trip

The loveliest place..

  • 5 of 5

If your dreams of a perfect holiday is a big house with a spa, luxus, white sandbeaches and in the middle of everything, this is not a place for you..

If your dreams of a perfect holiday is to stay on a small, beautiful and quiet island, in a small, cosy house with a breathtaking view to the sea and the most fantastic sunsets...

With the smell of fresh herbs, the buzz of the bees, surrounded by tomato- and eggplants, rosemary, thyme, oregano etc, on a mountain hill in a local village with a beautiful harbor and nice people....... Then this might be the right place for you.

In july 2015 we spent two fantastic weeks in this beautiful place, and we would for sure love to come back one day.

We were a family with 5/6 adults (oh yes, the fridge was a bit too small for so many persons) and we brought our own boat. Ivan and Anna were kind to help us finding a place for it. The island is a perfect starting point for daytrips to the sea and we found small lagunes for swimming and sunbathing. We also went to Kornati Islands and Krka waterfalls.

If you do not have a boat yourself, daytrips by boat can easily be bought.

On Prvic island there is a small supermarket, where you can buy the most necessary things. Otherwise you can go with a ferry or taxiboat to Vodice, where they have bigger supermarkets, green markets and butchers. There are also a lot of restaurants and in the evening the town really comes alive...

On Prvic there are also nice restaurants at the waterfront.

The island is car-free, but Ivan and Anna knows a place where you can park your car on the mainland, so if you wanna go sightseeing in Sibenik or other places by car that is possible, too.

Bring as little luggage as possible (we had a lot, and it was the days work-out to bring it upstairs on arrival and downstairs when we left... 😄 )

There is around 130 steps up the hill to reach the house, and also stairs inside the house, so it is not recommended for walking-impaired people nor very small children, unless you can carry them..

Don't forget to take a walk on the paths around the island, you will pass the most beautiful views....remember to bring drinking water...

There is no wi-fi in the house, but at the restaurants you can find (more or less useful) wi-fi signals.

Thank you Ivan and Anna for being helpful and always answering our questions...we had a lovely time "charging our batteries" in your nice little spot...

Wonderful Stay on Prvic

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in Prvic Luka and couldn't have wished for a better accomodation. The house is situated on a small hill, with beautiful views over the bay. You get to the house via a small path, and because it's the second last house on that path there are usually not many passers-by. We didn't find the steps tiring (it really only takes two minutes to walk up to the house). The house itself is a good size, with two patios (one to the front and one to the side of the house) and a balcony. It's well equipped. We especially liked the fact that we could use the washing machine—usefully for a longer stay (we stayed for two weeks). There was plenty of space and even toys in the bedrooms for our two sons. The ultimate luxury for me was fresh figs from the garden for breakfast every day (but I guess that's a question of visiting at the right time of year)!

Prvic Luka has a number of pleasant restaurants, all within a few minutes walk; not to mention the ice cream parlour that we visited regularly. :-)

There's a small stretch of shingle beach in Prvic Luka, and a larger beach in Sepurine (15 mins walk). In addition to the beaches, along the coastline are plenty of places where you can also safely enter the water. The crystal-clear water is ideal for snorkeling; we all loved exploring all the underwater creatures.

When we fancied a day out, we took the ferry to Sibenik or explored Prvic on foot. Krka National Park is also breathtaking (albeit very busy!) and easy to reach.

We'd like to say a big thank you to Ivan for being so incredibly helpful before and during our stay, and to Ana for her warm welcome. We'd love to come back!

House with a view

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time on Prvic Island. The house is wonderfull. The location is just perfect. We didn't count the steps to the house, but the daily trip down and then back up the hill was never any trouble.

The house is large enough for five people (we were four adults and one child).

The large garden (full of herbs), the BBQ, the terrace (both of them), the toys available for our four year old son..... everything was just perfect.

We visited the Island and surrounding islands (first with taxi boat, some days later with our own rented boat), Sibenik and Vodice.

Thanks to Ivan for all the help before our trip (via email) and Ana for the warm welcome and all the adivse!

The house with the best views on the island

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with our 3 children (12,10, 7) after a week sailing on a flotilla. It was the perfect complement. Prvic is a beautifully unspoilt island so much so that you almost feel you're on a film set. We rented a boat from Kristian in Srima and explored some beautiful local islands and turquoise coloured bays (as well as a few quick jollys to the mainland for a bit of inflatable waterpark tat for the kids!). On Privic there are plenty of places to swim and a good selection of very pleasant waterfront restaurants where you can watch the sunset while the kids hurl themselves in to the sea right in front of you.

The Mediterranean house sits above Prvic Luca village. But don't let the 120 steps put you off, it only takes 5 minutes to reach from the seafront and it is WELL worth the extra effort for the sensational views, not just of Prvic harbour and island but right across to the Kornati islands. We watched absolutely breathtaking sunsets and sunrises from the upper balcony and watched boats coming in and out of the harbour from far afield. The house is simply furnished and well equipped. It also has aircon which was a joy in the August heat. It divides well for a family or 2 couples in that there are 2 beds and 1 shower room on one side (kids) and a large master bed (accessed by a separate staircase from the kitchen) and a second bathroom.

The gardens are stuffed with herbs and lavender. We also enjoyed using the outdoor BBQ oven and eating out under the stars. Right behind the house is the pathway up to the viewpoint from which you can access the other side of the island - there's a lot to explore.

I almost want to keep quiet about Prvic, a hidden gem that I hope stays as quaintly charming as it is for ever. And this house is a great base from which to enjoy the island and surrounding area - highly recommended.
